VIDEO | Tonic Studios Wonderful Wishes Release

Hello there, today I am delighted to be joining Tonic Studios to celebrate their Wonderful Wishes release. We are celebrating with a fun party (more on that below) full of inspiration, discounts and giveaways.
Today I have three projects to share with you using the new release plus lots of ways to add sparkle and shine to your cards and projects.

My first card uses the wonderful new Tonic Studios Warm Cocoa Wishes Stamp Set. I first stamped the girl stamp from the set on to white cardstock with Nuvo Black Shadow Hybrid Ink. I then coloured her using Nuvo Alcohol Markers (the colours that I used will be listed below the supplies area) and fussy cut her out with scissors.
I took a panel of white cardstock and blended ink on to the bottom half. I used the Polar Ice colour from the Nuvo Sea Siren Diamond Hybrid Ink Pads collection and built up the colour using a blending brush. I then spritzed the panel with a solution of Perfect Pearls and water and set the piece aside to dry. I took the sentiment from the Tonic Studios Warm Cocoa Wishes Stamp Set and stamped this on to black cardstock with Versamark ink. I applied Nuvo Glacier White Embossing Powder and heat set. It was then cut in to a strip.
Once dry, the inked panel was adhered flat on to a white A2 card base with tape runner. I then added the girl image and sentiment on top with foam tape. I took Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen and added this to the girl's bow, followed by Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the heart on the cocoa cup. To finish off, I added Nuvo Gloss Simply White Crystal Drops around the sentiment.

My next card uses the super cute new Tonic Studios Snowman Snuggle Stamp Set. I started off by stamping the snowman group image, as well as one of the sentiments from the set on to a panel of white cardstock with black ink. I then made a mask for the snowmen from mask paper and added this on top. I took a sheet of mylar and die cut a circle from it. This was placed over my panel so that I could ink blend through it.
I used Polar Ice from the Nuvo Sea Siren Diamond Hybrid Ink Pads collection, as well as the Blue Siren colour from the Nuvo Blue Blossom Diamond Hybrid Ink Pads collection. Keeping the masks in place, I placed the Tonic Studios Winter Wonderland Stencil on top and masked off the areas that I did not want to use with Post-It Tape. I took Nuvo Frostbite Glacier Paste and applied a thin layer of this over the snow flurries. I removed the stencil plus both masks and left this aside to dry overnight.
Once dry, the images were coloured using Nuvo Alcohol Markers (the colours listed below) and the panel adhered on to an A2 white card base with foam tape. To finish off, I added Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops to the snowmen's hats.

Last but not least, I have a little tag to share with you. I first made the tag from white cardstock using the WRMK Tag Punch Board. I then placed the Tonic Studios Winter Wonderland Stencil over the tag and blended Distress Inks on to the trees. I used Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Pine Needles. I then added on a layer of Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste, being careful not to be too precise with it. I actually wanted it to look a bit messy to resemble snow piling up on the branches. I removed the stencil and set it aside to dry.
Once dry, I added a piece of MFT Black & White Striped Paper across the bottom, as well as a thin strip of black cardstock. I then took the mouse image from the Tonic Studios Warm Cocoa Wishes Stamp Set and stamped this on to more white cardstock. I coloured her with Nuvo Alcohol Markers and then fussy cut her out. She was added to the tag with foam tape.
I also white heat embossed the same sentiment as I used on the first card, but this time I masked off the 'and kisses' portion to have the sentiment read simply 'hugs'. This was also added to the tag with foam tape. To finish off, I added twine through the top of the tag and Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops to her scarf. I also added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to her glasses.


Here is the video showing how I made the projects:
