Hi, friends! Today I’m part of the Tonic Studios Garden Party Release Blog Hop celebrating brand new adorable and beautiful stamp sets. Please make sure to keep on reading until the bottom for more information on the blog hop order, giveaway and discount code! 🙂

In today’s video, I’m making two teacher appreciation cards using the brand new Celebrate Success and the Celebrate Sentiments stamp sets. I decided to work with a fun rainbow color scheme.

I stamped the images with Tonic Nuvo Black Shadow Hybrid Ink and colored them with Nuvo Alcohol Markers.

To stamp the colored pencils in a circular shape, I used a circle die. This makes it so much easier! Make sure to erase the pencil lines before coloring the images. Otherwise you’ll be left with the little marks.

For the sentiments banners, I heat embossed a greeting from the Celebrate Sentiments stamp set with the Nuvo Clear Mark Pad and white embossing powder.

To finish off the cards, I added a coat of sparkle with a Nuvo Aqua Flow Pen and some extra shine with Nuvo Crystal Glaze.

Happy Monday, friends! 😄 There are only 198 days left until Christmas, lol. So that means now is the perfect time to get a head start on those Christmas and Holiday cards.

Tonic Studios released their 23rd Craft Kit: Merry & Bright and it’s a good one! So many options. I’m a big fan of the color scheme in this kit and that Glacier Paste intrigued me right away! Make sure to watch the video below to see how I made these sparkly, clean and simple Christmas cards.

First, I created my own glitter paper. I’m not a big fan of glittery messes so I wanted to keep everything nice and clean. The Double Sided Adhesive Sheets from Tonic Studios are nice and sticky! Simply pour the glitter over the adhesive sheets and use a Dual Ended Blender Brush to burnish that glitter and remove all of the excess.

I also used the Sea Sprite Glacier Paste to create beautiful glossy card stock! This was so easy and simply to do. I simply used a Blending Sponge to apply and smear the paste on a piece of white card stock. This stuff dries SUPER fast so no need to let it dry overnight.

The bottle of Silver Crystals Glitter Drop, is perfect to finish off these Christmas projects. I also used Crystal Glaze and a few clear sequins here and there to add more shine and dimension.

That’s it for now! Thank you so much for stopping by. Sending big hugs! ❤️

Hi, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful, sunny Easter weekend. 🐣🐰 The past couple of days I’ve made a lot of cards with Tonic’s 21st Craft Kit – Distress Details. Guess what? I didn’t use a single stamp to create all five of these!

Make sure to watch the video below for lots of tips and tricks. If you’re new to my channel, subscribe and click the bell to receive notifications whenever I upload a new video.

For the first two cards, I used the Distressed Stencil that comes with the kit along with the Boatyard Blue Expanding Mousse and Soft Truffle Embellishment Mousse. Applying these mousses with a Nuvo Blending Sponge is so easy and fun to do!

Next, I decided to get create with some of the dies from the Distressed Edge & Tag Die Cut Set. I made my own stencil with masking paper and added a fun pop of color with the tiny flower dies. To finish off these little flowers, I applied Dirty Bronze Crystal Drops, Belgium Bluestone and Fiery Volcano Stone Drops.

Finally, I made an elegant gold card with the big rose die from the Distressed Edge & Tag Die Cut Set. I used one of the beautiful specialty papers that comes with the kit and combined it with White Blizzard Glitter Drops.
