Tonic Studios Garden Party Blog Hop - Day 2

Hello Everyone! I am so excited to be part of today’s Garden Party blog hop, hosted by Tonic Studios to help celebrate their newest release! This is a small but exciting release and the aim is to introduce new modern and bright stamp designs tailored for versatility.

I have three cards for you today using new goodies from the Garden Party release, so let’s get started with the details!
For my first card I used the pretty Flora Background stamp along with the GORGEOUS Nuvo Shimmer Powder: Lilac Waterfall. This is such a pretty powder with multi-color effect.


 I stamped  and embossed the background image onto watercolor paper. I then added some of the Nuvo shimmer powder and spritz a little water.  Let this dry. Now, I added a light touch of blue, pink Faber-Castell  watercolor marker to few of the areas of the flowers. I then added a light wash of green watercolor in the background.  Now, I fussy cut the image as I wanted to create some movement to my card design. Stamp and emboss the sentiment.
These powders are so pretty in real life and have such a pretty and subtle shine...love love love.


Finally, I added some black splatters and adhered the card to a white cardbase. To finish, I added a few confetti by Studio Katia.
For my second project I used the pretty and delicate floral cluster from the Botanical Burst Stamp Set. 


Since I had the Nuvo Shimmer out and that I really love this color, I started by creating a background. I added some powder to a white cardstock, spritz water and put Tim Holtz Dot Fade stencil on it. Let dry. I then Stamped and embossed the floral cluster onto vellum. Added some colors using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. One of my go to techniques. Adhere it to the mat layer.

I stamped and embossed the sentiment and adhered it to the card. I added a bit of thread behind the sentiment stripe.

Check out the pretty shimmer.


To finish, I added some confetti from Studio Katia.
For my last card, I had to color the pretty Peonies from the Peony Bloom stamp set.If you love coloring then you are going to adore this stamp set.


I started by applying some color wash to a stripe of white cardstock and let it dry. Meanwhile, I stamped the images onto watercolor paper using Antique Linen distress ink as I wanted to do some no-line watercolor to it. 
I colored the images using Faber Castell watercolor markers and fussy cut them. I adhered the stripe to a white card and added a few black and blue splatters. Adhered the flowers and stamped the sentiment.


Aren't those blooms pretty :)

Beautiful cards. My favourites are the first and the third one. Maybe because part of the background is left white, which makes the colours somehow stronger
