Hello crafty friends and Happy August!

Yes, it has been a while since my last post, really it's only been like 10 days but in the social media world, it seems like forever! I am purposely taking it slow this month and trying to enjoy the family and the weather as much as possible as I am on vacation this month. Any posts that you see from me this month have been pre-scheduled in reality.

So let's get on with today's crafty friendship cards featuring goodies from Honey Bee Stamps Summer Stems Release.

CARD RECIPE
I created both cards using all the images that I had colored from the Let's Get Crafty stamp set. I reserved the sewing items for a card I previously shared 👉here. This craft set is perfect for not only crafty friends but for teachers and back-to-school themed cards. So here is the recipe for my first card.

I kept things super simple. Basically stuck all the elements along the bottom of the card panel and popped them up with foam. For the sentiment, I colored the top layer of the crafty die in rainbow order added some glue, and then sparkle glitter.

This next Slimline card is more for the artist in your life, one that loves all the media!

To the top of the slimline, I blended out the rainbow colors to tie in with the rainbow paints.

I always love to finish off my cards with extra details, like the glossy accents that add shine and dimension. Here are all the closeups.

Patterns & Prints Friendship Mixed Media Cards | Tonic Studios Stamp Club Release

Hello friends and happy FriYAY!

It's the last Friday of the month and you know what that means, it's time for another Tonic Stamp Club Release!


So welcome to the July 2021 Tonic Studios Patterns & Prints Release. If you have already joined the hop you are at the second stop and should have arrived from Maria's Blog.  I will link the complete hop list and giveaway details near the end of this post, so stay tuned for those just getting started! 

Let's take a look at the Patterns & Prints 6" x 8" stamp and die bundle. This set coordinates with the Backgrounds & Borders bundle for increased versatility (word dies can be combined and stylistically the bundles work well together).

  • STAMPS: 15 total stamps in a mixed media style that is perfect for creating beautifully textured backgrounds and projects.
  • DIES:
  • 14 total dies
  • Includes bold word dies that be rearranged to create new sentiments. Use in combination with the bold word dies from Backgrounds & Borders to increase your sentiment options!
  • Includes four sentiment dies in a fun cursive font that have both the text and shadow dies.
  • Includes two large stand-alone dies that can be used to create backgrounds, accent pieces or used as stencils to add texture to your projects.
Today's cards were inspired by my uber-talented friend Maria Willis who always creates these amazing mixed media cards. Mixed media for me is way out of my comfort zone, but seeing her gorgeous creations inspired me to try making my own. Usually, when I create I have a vision in my mind of what the final card will look like, this time I had no clue and just went with the flow, and I am really happy with the results.

CARD RECIPE
 
I began by creating the background for my cards using one piece of Bristol Paper that I later cut into the four backgrounds for my 4 cards.
  • To the paper, I sprinkled on shimmer powders and then sprayed the paper with water until I was satisfied with the blending of the colors. Let the paper dry overnight or speed up the drying process with a heat tool. (The drying definitely was the hardest part for me, lol).
  • Once dry, stamp on the patterns randomly using black ink.
  • I then die-cut the honeycomb pattern and the grid from the die set to use for stenciling. 
  • To the honeycomb areas, I used transfer gel. Once dry I then applied the foil.
  • To the square grid areas, I applied Golden Era Glacier Paste and allowed it to dry.
  • My final step was to splatter on the white paint.

For this card, I then die-cut the honeycomb window and created a simple shaker. Because I used chunky glitter I just used double-sided adhesive and no foam for more of a flat shaker result.

I then used the coordinating Patterns & Prints bold and cursive font dies for the greeting.

This next card is pretty straightforward, I just glued the grid behind the bold letters and then trimmed the panel before gluing it to the white card base.

To make the letters more visible I used a black layer behind the white bold word die cuts.

For this next card, I created a flat frameless shaker card using the A2 Shaker Creator Pockets. The die cuts were then glued to the plastic front and the insides filled with glitter magic!

Here it is all shaken up. Initially, the glitter stuck to the surface of the card front and I really couldn't see the background pattern anymore (I was kicking myself for not using antistatic powder), but the next day the static seemed to disappear and the glitter no longer stuck! Not sure if that was a fluke or if it will always lose the static after a while. Either way, I was happy the background was visible again!

This final card was super simple. One layer for each die-cut letter and then trimmed to fit onto this black piece of cardstock that I had glued to the card base.

I love the shine of the foil and the contrasting mat finish of the paste.

It's too bad that the pictures don't show how much shimmer on the background. Make sure you are following me on Instagram as I will share some videos to show you all the sparkles.
