Hi everybody! It's release day over at Tonic Studios and we are throwing an on-line party to celebrate! Before I get too far into this post I want you to know this party comes complete with a little gift for you... 15% off all stamps from Tonic Studios! If you'd like to take advantage of the discount here are some links for you:



Now let's get to the good part, the stamps! This Spring Dreams stamp release has five different stamp sets and while they are all fantastic... I couldn't tear myself away from the Unicorn Wishes set. I ended up making two cards and a tag and believe me I could easily have kept going (but I decided I needed four hours of sleep).

For my first card I ink blended the background and then splattered it with my Glitter Gloss pen. It gave the background a fun, sparkly look. After coloring my images I created a bouquet of balloons with silver strings so that I could suspend the unicorn in the air. Once I saw the sentiment, "You Don't Need Wings to Fly," I knew I had to have my unicorn flying around via balloons.

The balloons are all coated in a thick coat of Nuvo Crystal Glaze so they all look shiny and thick. I heat embossed my sentiment in white onto black cardstock and cut it out so that it would pop off of the card. The last bit of fun that I had with this card was to add sequins in Silver Rain and Nuvo Dream Drops in Cloud 9.

My next card is even shinier as I decided to use Nuvo Sparkle sprays and Holowave holographic cardstock. I ink blended my unicorns and then used a white gel pen to add some sparkles to their booties. I added Glitter Gloss to my clouds, colored my rainbow, heat embossed my sentiment and set it all aside.

I used the Nuvo Sparkle Sprays in Marine Mist and Lavender Lining to lightly spritz the black cardstock background. I layered that with a wide frame cut from Holowave cardstock before adhering all of my stamped images on with foam tape.

To finish this card off I added a little more sparkle with Silver Rain sequins.

Since I had my Nuvo Sparkle Sprays out I had to have a go with them on Tonic's Black Glossy Mirror Cardstock... Because the sparkle sprays on glossy cardstock are insanely gorgeous! I cut this perfect little tag using the Wondrous Woods Silhouette Tag & Wallet Die set. This is also the tag die that I like to use when I'm making swatches.

After spritzing the background with sparkle spray I used my heat tool to help it dry more quickly. Sparkle Spray dries pretty quickly on regular cardstock but with the glossy cardstock it tends to sit on top of the paper and takes a little while too dry. So, I sped that process up a bit so I could start putting my tag together.

I stamped my image onto Holowave cardstock and adhered it using foam adhesive. I followed that up by adding the unicorn and a shooting star. This tag is so sparkly I decided not to add any embellishments.
