I have a set of three cards to showcase Tonic Studios Backgrounds and Borders Stamp and Die Bundle.
Backgrounds and Borders Stamp & Die Bundle
Tonic Studios has wowed me again with their Backgrounds and Borders Stamp & Die Bundle. Their bundles designed with efficiency and ease of use in mind.
Simply load a border stamp in your MISTI or another stamp positioner, stamp, shift your cardstock exactly 1″, and repeat to create a full background. Plus, the dies work within the negative space of the borders, and just look at those word dies. Yes, please!
The Tonic Studios Stamp Club is released on the last Friday of each month. It’s not a subscription-based program. However, each stamp and die bundle is a limited release. So get your Backgrounds and Borders Stamp & Die Bundle before it’s gone.
Herringbone & Heartfelt Corsage
Don’t you just love the charming hand-drawn herringbone pattern? It was difficult to choose one pattern so I mixed two in my first card.
To start, I stamped a full background panel with Altenew Pastel Sunrise and Winter Lake Crisp Dye Inks. Then I die-cut Miss and You from the background panel.
Next, I swiped Winter Lake ink onto a separate piece of white cardstock to back the negative die-cut sentiments. Finally, I stamped the largest bouquet from Tonic Studios Heartfelt Corsage in Winter Lake ink and Copic colored the image.
Flower Petals | Y32, YR02, E93
Leaves | YG23, YG67
Stamen | B97
Heartfelt Corsage was the first Stamp Club set. Unfortunately, it’s sold out so I made a note I made a note of that on the listing below.
HUGS. That is all.
My second card showcases the amazing word dies included in this bundle. This clean and simple design was a result of me smearing the ink on my stamped background panel.
I LOVE negative space sentiment strip die-cuts like this. Simply, cut your cardstock to the size of the die, align the edges of the cardstock to the die, tape it in place, and run it through your die-cutting machine for a perfect sentiment strip every time.
Here I used Neenah Epic Black 165lb cardstock for a hefty feel without the need to stack multiple die-cuts. The sub-sentiment is just printed directly onto the 4.25 x 5.5-inch card front. Clean, simple, and effective.
Use Your Leftovers
Of course, I couldn’t let the herringbone letters from my first card go to waste, so I repurposed them on my last card. This hexagon stamp works with the hexagon die. Vary the look of the pattern by changing the amount of space between the stamped images.
The solid hexagon stamp colors two hexagons at a time allowing for quick coloring. Here I used Altenew Pastel Sunrise and Chamomile Crisp Dye Inks.
Negative space sentiment die-cuts add a modern vibe to this card and inlaying the herringbone letters from the first card add one more pop of soft color. That’s a wrap on the cards. Do let me know your favorite in the comments. Now let’s get to the prizes!
