Tonic Studios Delicate Detail Stamp set

Hi! Hope you’ve all had a lovely Easter. We spent it at church and with our family and I didn’t eat a lot of chocolate as was too busy cooking!

During the Easter weekend, Tonic Studios launched their Delicate Detail stamp sets over on Hochanda and they were really well received. This is the first of two posts showing some of my samples for the launch to give you an idea of what you can create with them.

First up is a box – a simple pizza  box with some basic layers and very simply gold embossed with the beautiful henna stamp.

The tag is using the set of 4 clear sentiments that come with the whole range. At present the sets are only available from Hochanda as one complete set but they will in time, be available separately.

This second project uses one of my favourite styles- the ‘off the page’ with acetate structure behind and lots of fussy cutting from the stamp I’ve photographed alongside.

You can see more of the detail here- the leaves are simply coloured with alcohol markers. It’s hard to see, but the base card is actually purple.

This card was hard to photograph with the lighter colours. Its one of the gorgeous Vintage stamps white embossed and coloured with Distress inks. Simple, but grouped a little differently to give a contemporary look.

This last one is using the henna circle again- but done in a very easy project. We had to prepare some easy demos for Paula Pascual so she could do demonstrations in super quick time.

I’ve loved creating with this stamp set collection and hope you’ll enjoy using them too!

Enjoy the rest of your Easter break and I’ll be back with the second part of projects using this set

A little Tonic minus the Gin 

Hey! Did that title get your attention?

I’ve been playing with some Tonic products recently. They recently sent me some to try out. I had a quick play and loved the quality. 

This first project is using the Patterned Panels Die ‘Budding Vine’ . Instead of just using as a layer, I backed acetate onto it and then coloured in elements of it using markers. 

This second project is using the Essentials Circles dies. It’s often tempting to just use the circles to matt and layer, but they’re so much more useful than that.

I’ve cut into a few of the coloured frames to interlink them and create a fun, playful design useful for an unisex type of card.

My last one is another simple treatment of Framed Screens- Zig Zag and Floral Die. This set has 2 inside panels and an outer frame.

I’ve just paper pieced and it’s ready for a sentiment. Sometimes it’s just easier leaving them un-sentimented ( there, a new word!) and then I’ve always got choice!

I recently made some samples for Tonic using their gorgeous new Mandala Moments stamps and dies and Brush Script pens. I’ll show you those in another post.

I’m so glad to post today as I have been running out of time recently. However I did a complete #parentingwin – I turned up at school over an hour EARLY. Yup. And it even took me 10 minutes to work it out 😜. I’m not in any way shape or form losing it?! 😉

At least I’m not late, although the rapidly defrosting shopping in the boot certainly isn’t enjoying my early start! 

Back to writing (& making ) my Christmas cards once I’ve finished this post!!

See you soon xx
