Tonic Studios Garden Party Blog Hop Day 1

Hey there friends! I’m so, so excited to finally share with you the fantabulous Tonic Studios Garden Party Release. We all love all the tools, accessories, embellishments and coloring mediums that Tonic Studio has to offer, but now they are expanding their line of stamps and they are amazing!

Today I’ll be sharing a couple projects with the new Peony Bloom stamp set. This may be my favorite set in this release! This 6″ x 8″ stamp set features three beautiful, large peony blooms that are great for coloring with any kind of medium.

This card features the bloom stamped in a dark brown hybrid ink and colored with copic markers. There was also some light detailing added with color pencils. The images were then fussy cut out (or in my case, I used my ScanNCut2).

I created an oval frame by die cutting a piece of A2 sized white card stock with the Mixed Edge Oval Basics die. On another sheet, I ink blended Forest Moss and Peeled Paint distress oxide inks from the bottom up, and faded it into the white card stock.

Then, I stamped the sentiment ‘for a special someone’ from the Banner Die & Stamp Hooray set towards the top. The frame and flower was added on to the blended panel with foam tape. For final embellishment, I used the Nuvo Jewel Drops Rose Water on the image and the background. I love the transparency of the jewel drops and the water-like look it gives!

My next card once again uses the Peony Bloom set, but this time with the emboss resist technique. I heat embossed several of the floral images to a piece of a watercolor paper in gold. I also added some paint splatter to add texture to the images.

For my sentiment, I used the Hello Die Sentiment Strip. The word was die cut out of the beautiful Gold Dust Glitter Card and the outline was die cut out of white card stock. The sentiment served as a divider between the floral pattern and a simple soft gray card stock.

Let’s not forget to add some Nuvo drops! I used the Gold Luxe Dream Drops as my final embellishment on this card. All the shine and sparkle adds such a beautiful, elegant touch and I love it!
