Hi and welcome back to my blog, quite possibly for the second time today! It’s busy, busy today with lots of guest designing and new releases.
Today I’m hopping along with some fab crafty friends to celebrate the August Stamp Club from Tonic Studio called Christmas Rose. You can get the bundle from both the UK Tonic Studios shop and the US Tonic Studios shop.
The Stamp Club is not a subscription, it’s a monthly bundle, and it will only be sold as a bundle, that is exclusive to Tonic Studios, and will be available for three months, and after that, once it’s sold out, it’s gone. It’s release the last Friday of every month, with some exceptions when holidays and other dates clash.
As we are celebrating the new release and we are hopping along, there are prizes up for grabs and you can win a £50/$50 gift voucher to the Tonic Studios shop, as well as a Stamp Club bundle!
All you have to do is comment on this blog to be in with a chance to win. The more you hop, and comment, the more chance of you winning!
I will link the full hop list below, and the next stop on the hop is my lovely friend SEEKA!
Now, for my projects, I have used the floral image for both of them. Both are coloured with Copic markers, and I have used the same markers on both of them, but the flowers were done in opposite ways.
The first one was coloured on some weird paper, that didn’t blend very well, so it’s not my best effort but I thought you can use it as inspiration anyway. On this one, I used the coordinating diecut and cut it out.
I also used the frame die on white card stock. On this I also used the holed frame die, and I stitched some gold thread on this piece for interest. Obviously, this is not the way to go if you want to bulk make Christmas cards, as it does take some time.
The sentiment ‘happy holidays to you and yours’ was heat embossed in Rich Gold embossing powder, after using an anti-static tool on this panel. Once this was done, I adhered the whole thing to a white card base.
The second card was done in a much simpler way: I stamped the floral image, and after colouring this in with the same colours as the first card, I also used some Cool Greys to add some depth to the background. This panel was trimmed down quite a lot, about a 1/4 inch on all sides.
On the back of this, I adhered two pieces of card stock to pop it up a little bit, but still keeping it quite flat. I also cut out the ‘merry Christmas’ out of white card stock twice, and these were added to the front of the card and that was it!
That’s it from me for today, but don’t forget to hop along the rest of the hop to see more inspiration and amazing projects.
