Hello my craft friends, Happy Friday, I’m looking forward to the weekend, how about you? And it’s a long weekend up here to boot, yeah! Today I’m sharing two cards created with the Tonic Studios Patterns and Prints Stamp Club set which is being released today.
It’s so exciting to be part of this fun blog hop to announce the release of Tonic Studios Patterns & Prints Stamp Club New Stamp and Die Bundle. The team has fabulous creations to share with you too so let’s jump right in.
These images are fun to layer. I created the backgrounds with Nuvo Shimmer Powders for a fun mixed media feel. Over that I did some heat embossing, some stenciling and ink rubs with Mousse etc.
Nuvo Shimmer Powders:
Nuvo Shimmer Powders are a unique combination of shimmering mica powder and a vibrant dry pigment. There are different pigments included in each bottle so you get a beautiful depth of color. They are activated by water creating unique textures and marble effects with dazzling color.
These artful stamps and dies are only sold through Tonic Studios and can only be ordered as a bundle – USA orders here, UK orders here. And to celebrate Tonic’s anniversary, they are including this lovely 9 Stamp Birthday Set for FREE
Tonic Studios Patterns and Prints Card #1
Using Watercolor paper for the background, shake on Nuvo Shimmer Powder in Storm Cloud in 3 different spots. Spritz with water and then dry with a heat tool.
Next, add the Golden Sparkle Shimmer Powder, spritz and heat set.
TIP – I find leaving a bit of white showing in the background really adds to the feel of the card.
Next, black heat emboss the circle elements and the newspaper script from the stamp set.
Create a stencil with the dots die from the Backgrounds and Borders Die Set.
Place it along the right side and add Nuvo Expanding Mousse in Tuscan Gold through the stencil.
Repeat across the top left side.
Cut the piece down to 3-7/8 x 5-1/8
Finally, Attach it to a 4 x 5-1/4 mat in a dark mustard color and then to a top folding black A2 card base.
Die cutting the Sentiments:
Die cut the Friend sentiment twice in black and once in mirror gold. Stack them and then attach to the card over the newsprint.
Die cut the “wonderful” word 3 times in black. Stack them and attach them above the word friend.
Finally, once the glue is dry, use the Expanding Mousse as a finger rub and add it over the “wonderful” to highlight it slightly.
Tonic Studios Patterns and Prints Card 2
Follow similar steps to above this time using Violet Brocade and Storm Cloud Nuvo Shimmer Powders for the background.
Great a stencil with the hex die from the die set out of gold foil paper.
Use the negative as a stencil and push Nuvo Crackle Mousse through it in Russian White. The crackle adds even more interest to the card.
Next, die cut the Hex strip from the Backgrounds and Borders Die set and attach down the left side of the art piece
attach it to the mat and then to the card base.
Die cutting the sentiments:
Start by die cutting Hello 3 times in black. Stack and add to the top of the card.
Die cut Friend once in mirror gold and attach it down the right side
Add a few of the hex pieces randomly over the card
Finally, use the Tuscan Gold Expanding Mousse as a finger rub and add gold to the hello sentiment.
