Tonic Studios Stamp Club June Release and Blog Hop: Sunflowers & Sunshine

Hi and welcome back to my blog!

Today’s post is one of the stops for the June release of Tonic Studios Stamp Club blog hop! This month it’s all about Sunflowers & Sunshine and the next stop is the fab Emily Midgett, and you might have come here from the gorgeous Maria Willis!

You can find the Sunflowers & Sunshine bundle both in the UK Tonic shop, as well as the US shop. If you are in the US and can not wait to grab this fab bundle, CLICK HERE.

If you haven’t heard of the Stamp Club before, it’s a monthly kit, but it’s not a subscription so you can pick and choose which ones you want. Don’t fancy this month’s kit? Just skip it and check out next month’s one. Easy peasy, and no pressure, no membership and no automatic payments going out.

There is a release the last Friday of every month, except for some where holidays might fall on the last Friday. There is also a release blog hop every month, where you can win an entire release as well as a gift voucher, either $50 or 50 quid depending on where you are! All you have to do is leave comments along the blog hop before June 30th, 11.59pm PST/7.59am GST July 1st.

If you have missed a kit, check out the available ones in the UK Tonic Shop here, and the ones available in the US Tonic Shop here. Once they are gone, that’s it, they won’t be restocked so if you fancy one or two, grab them as soon as you can.

As mentioned, this month’s kit is called Sunflowers & Sunshine. In it you will find gorgeous sunflower stamps, and lots of coordinating dies, as well as standalone dies so you can make flowers without colouring a single one! So cool, this is definitely a must have kit!

For my card, I did do some colouring. Unsurprisingly, lol. I started with the cluster of sunflowers and stamped them up on Copic friendly card stock.

I have used quite a few Copics to colour this image in, but I think it was worth it. Next time I might go a bit darker yellow though, for these I tried keeping quite a lot of light on them for those sunshine highlights.

Once the colouring was done, I used one of the diecuts to cut this out, and then I trimmed it down a little bit more with my paper trimmer. The image fits nicely on the horizontal, on an A2/5,5”x4.25” panel.

Before I adhered the flower cluster, with foam tape of course, I stamped up on of the sentiments from the stamp set with black ink, on a slim strip of card stock. This one was adhered directly to the card base, and then the flowers on top of this.

I very nearly left it like that, but the lure of those gorgeous sequins proved to be too much. Eh, what can you do? To not overwhelm the card, I tucked a few of them in under the flowers, so they just peek out a little. It brings in the eye and doesn’t take over the whole card.

With that, I’m done and it’s time to hop on! The full hop list can be found below:

    1. That’s so true, just seeing the other designers projects proves this. I love seeing how different people use the same products, there are always some “whoa, amazing” moments.

  1. Gorgeous coloring. I love the contrast in intensity along the petals. It looks like there is a strong light source right above the sunflowers. It is impressive work.
