Tonic Studios Wonderful Wishes Online Party

Hi, Jen Kray here.
Today I'm super excited to be part of the new Tonic Studios Wonderful Wishes stamp release Online Party! All the stamp sets are totally gorgeous and I can't pick a favourite, they are all so cute and fun!
I've a 10% Coupon Code for everything in the Tonic Studios Store (except kits). 
My main project is a little different as I wanted to design something that would involve the whole family during the Christmas period. 
This Christmas, in our house, it's all about environmentally friendly decorations and taking time to think about packaging and waste during the festive period. We're not perfect, but small changes will make a difference. 
  • Start with some wood slices and lightly sand the surface until it's smooth to touch. 
  • cover a selection of wood slices with white gesso. Allow to dry and repeat. 
  • Position your wood slice on your Tim Holtz Stamping Platform and align the design you want. 
  • Use Nuvo Hybrid Black Shadow or Metro Grey Permanent Ink. You may need to reapply ink, which is why the platform is the tool of choice. Alternatively, you can use a stamp block. 
  • Carefully dry with a heat tool and allow to cool down completely (the wood gets hot). 
  • Use Nuvo Shimmer Powders with a little water to colour in your image. 
  • Use regular brown packing paper and splatter with gesso. Wrap gifts. 
  • Add twine or ribbon and adhere to present or use as a Christmas ornament.

Additional Steps for Santa
  • Add Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops to santa. 
  • Add Nuvo Crystal Glaze to santa boots. 
  • Use skin tone watercolour pencil for his face. 
Alternative Stamping
  • Stamp  and heat emboss directly onto sanded wood slice using Tim Holtz Stamping Platform for a clean and rustic finish. 
  • Add a few bells for a little jingle. 
  • Detachable ornaments will make awesome garland for your tree or fireplace. 
Young or old, simple stamp up your ornaments and tags then spend the afternoon with the children, grandchildren, parents, nannies and grandads. The gesso allows you to colour on top of the wood with Nuvo Shimmer Powders, Alcohol Markers, Colour Pencils, Markers, etc.
These decorations are fantastic environmentally friendly keepsakes and a fun arts and crafts project for the entire family.

More projects to come over the following week! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and I really hope you like my project.
Lots of love and hugs, Jen xx
