More inspiration using Tonic Studios new stamp collection - Garden Party

Happy Sunday everyone and I hope you have great fun hopping over to all our blogs the last few days, seeing all the inspiration from the new Tonic Studios stamp release: Garden Party.

Thought I'd share, in a little more detail one of my projects, using the wonderful Flora Background stamp ...

There is also a 15% discount code that can be used in the Tonic Studio shops ...

Yesterday I shared the box (made using Diamond Cut Heart Box) but I also made a matching card using the same collection of dies - Diamond Cut Heart layering.

I have used Craft Perfect pearlescent card in Pearl White, stamping the Flora Background with Nuvo Clear Mark ink and embossing with Nuvo Gold embossing powder. The combination of both the pearlescent sheen from the card and the embossing powder, looks divine.

I have coloured all images with my Nuvo alcohol markers and used the following colours:

  • Flowers - 432 Violet Breeze, 434 Wild Thistle, 437 Spring Lilac, 439 Sugar Plum
  • Leaves -  410 Persian Lime, 412 Pea Pod, 415 Pine grove, 417 Hunter Green
You can still use my 15% discount code in either Tonic Studios shop, not just on this release but in the whole store - excluding Craft Kits.

Many, many thanks for popping over yesterday and today, sharing in the excitement of this wonderful new stamp release and you can still join in the giveaway on my blog for a £25/$25 gift voucher to spend in the Tonic Studios shop - HERE.

Hope to see you all soon,

Underwater Artist Art Journal Page using Marlene's World Collection from Studio Light

I treated myself a long while ago to the fabulous Marlene's World Collection from Studio Light and sadly have to report that it has stayed hidden in a folder since then. Finally, I had some precious "me time" and decided to get the collection and have a play around with a few of the stamps plus collage/paper piece s. It was the sentiment that really "sang to me" 😍 but not like a Sea Siren does ...! A full "how I did it" is below & also a full list of supplies at the bottom of the post.

Legacy Keep Dies from Tonic Studios to make an album page.

Hi everyone. Have you been enjoying Tonic Studios 17th birthday celebrations on Hochanda? Oh my goodness, so many wonderful die collections and Nuvo products to choose from, each as much fun to 'play' with ... oh yes they are, trust me 😏😍😉 This weekend, Jodie is launching a set of dies called 'Legacy Keeper' which are part of the Memory Book range. For my first project share using these dies, I have used them to create an album page for this album - made using Memory Book 2  ...   The front is decorated with the new Treasured Tome A4 embossing folder creating an embossed acetate layer on top. Gotta go off topic here and say did you see Jodie & Janice trying to pronounce the embossing folders name? So very funny ...! Okay, back to the album ... I often create an acetate layer to act as a protective cover to the front of my albums especially if you have a photograph on the front.

Learning to photograph my craft projects featuring Text(ures) stamps by Lou Collins

Do you know what I find the hardest about blogging and sharing on social media? Taking clear, good photographs. It really is a daily struggle & some days, the struggle can be monumental when doing photography editing.   Recently I’ve been following a few wonderful artists & a few companies, who above being creative, also share their hints and tips about how to get the best shots to show case the project you may have spent hours making.   My subject for this post is the card below …
