Video: Tonic Studios Stamp Club Blog Hop & Giveaway: Snowmies

Hey everybody and welcome to today's launch of Snowmies from Tonic Studios! I've got a ton of cards and a VIDEO for you today so I am going to just dive right in! Oh! Also there are cards and envelopes in the video that are not on my blog today so make sure you head over there to see everything I've got to share today!

For my first card I made a slim-line card with trees and snowmies from this month's Snowmies release. I created a custom sentiment using the large die cut letters from both Patterns & Prints and Backgrounds & Borders.

To create the background I did an easy watercolor wash using Distress Oxide inks. Then I sprayed the background with White Iridescent Shimmer Spray from Hero Arts which gave it a sparkly, snowy finish. I added snowflakes that I die-cut from holowaves cardstock to the background.

To finish my card off I added the trees and snowmies with foam adhesive and the letters with liquid glue. Some Nuvo Dream Drops in Indigo Eclipse.

Now, I promised you a VIDEO and you can check that out HERE (affialiate links may be used at no extra cost to you)...

For my next card I made another slimline card. I inkblended the background in bold blues and then I used the stencil that comes in the Snowmies bundle to stencil snowflakes onto the background using glacier paste. It came out super sparkly and gorgeous! at the bottom of the card I sprayed the background with White Iridescent Shimmer Spray to  make it look like snow.

I watercolored the sledding snowmies and die cut them out. I placed them in the center of the card using foam tape.

Then I added my sentiments at the top and bottom of the card to finish it off.

For this next card I built two snowmies using the snowman builder dies. I built them in different sizes and gave them each a mug of something warm and delicious to drink.

I used white glitter paper to create some snow drifts and I heat embossed my sentiments in white on black.

I inkblended my background and then I used the falling snow side of the stencil to add snow using my Moonstone Glimmer paste. After that all I had to do was glue it all together and add it to a black cardbase.

My next card was really easy to put together. I used patterned paper on the card base then covered that with a panel that I textured using the texture plates from the new mini slimline envelope builder die set. I added white, glitter snowflakes on top of the white panel.

I built myself an easy snowman using the snowman builder dies. I added him to the card along with some snow drifts.

The last step was to add a sentiment: Sending warm holiday hugs! I love that sentiment!

You can use this set to make some really beautiful and easy to reproduce cards too. For this next card I sprayed some white cardstock with my Dina Wakley acrylic gloss sprays in shade of green. Then I cut some trees out using the dies from the Snowmies bundle.

I covered the cardbase in red, striped patterned paper and splattered it with Midas Touch. Then I added a strip of vellum and adhered the trees on top using foam tape.

I added a beautiful sentiment from the Christmas Rose stamp set and then some gold sequins to finish it off.
