Hello there and welcome to the Tonic Studios Stamp Club Party Animals Blog Hop! The amazing Maria Willis has collaborated with Tonic Studios to bring you new releases every month called Stamp Club. The Stamp Club release this month features the super cute Party Animals Stamp & Die Bundle, along with the Banners & Strips Die Set that works well with the sentiments in the set, as well as lots of other sentiments that you might have.
This is not a subscription but more like a kit and exclusive to Tonic Studios. You can purchase a stamp and die bundle along with add-on products on the last Friday of every month. The bundle is limited edition so once it is sold out, it is sold out for good, so grab it while you can! More details on the hop below :)
For my first card, I am using the adorable elephants from the Tonic Studios Party Animals Stamp & Die Bundle. I started off by stamping the two elephants and the birthday cake on to white cardstock with black ink. I then coloured them using a combination of Tonic Nuvo Alcohol Markers and Copic Markers. They were cut out using the coordinating dies (what is great about these dies is that they are not connected together, so no annoying metal to cut between them!).
I then took a panel of white cardstock and masked off the edges. Using a blending brush, I blended Tonic Studios Nuvo Laguna Bay Hybrid Ink from the top down. I then splattered on some of the ink, followed by Arteza Titanium White Gouache. While the panel was drying, I took a piece of vellum and die cut it using the grass die in the set. I then blended on Tim Holtz Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks.
The grass was adhered to the panel using vellum adhesive and the baby elephant popped behind with tape runner. The bigger elephant and cake were adhered on top with foam tape. I took the sentiments from the set and stamped them on to black cardstock with Tonic Studios Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Pad. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. They were cut in to strips using the Tonic Studios Banners & Strips Die Set and added to the card with foam tape.
My next card uses the wonderful hippo from the set. I started off by stamping the hippo, balloon and hat from the Tonic Studios Party Animals Stamp & Die Bundle on to white cardstock with black ink. I coloured them using markers and then die cut them out with the coordinating dies. I took a Hero Arts Nesting Tag Infinity Die and cut it from MFT Summertime Polka Dots Paper Pad. It was added to a white card base with tape runner.
I then took the sentiment from the set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Tonic Studios Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Pad before applying white embossing powder. It was die-cut using one of the stitched dies from the Tonic Studios Banners & Strips Die Set and added to the card with foam tape. The hippo, balloon and tag were then added with foam tape also. To finish off, I added Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the balloon.
My final card for today uses the adorable turtle from the set. I started off my stamping the turtle, cake, hat and candle from the Tonic Studios Party Animals Stamp & Die Bundle on to white cardstock with black ink. They were coloured using markers and die cut out using the coordinating dies. They were then set aside while I worked on the background scene. I took an A2 white card base and masked of the edges. I die cut the cloud die from the set with Mylar sheet to create a stencil.
I did the same with the grass die as well. I first took the cloud stencil and placed this on to the panel. Using an ink blending brush, I blended on Tonic Studios Polar Ice Hybrid Ink, moving the stencil down as I went. For the grass, I used the negative piece of the stencil, placed this above and blended ink below. I used Tim Holtz Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks. The masks were removed and the sentiment from the set stamped at the top. I then adhered the turtle, hat, cake and candle with foam tape. To finish off, I added Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the turtle's shell.
