Their dedication to innovation extends to their ever-expanding collection of embellishments, those finishing touches that elevate your projects from ordinary to extraordinary.

This article delves into the exciting world of Tonic Studios’ newest embellishments, showcasing their potential and inspiring you to explore creative techniques that will make your projects stand out.

Embossing Powders and Glitter Effects

Embellishments can add a whole new dimension to your projects, literally and figuratively. Tonic Studios offers a range of embossing powders that create stunning raised effects on your paper or cardstock when combined with heat tools. From classic pearlescent finishes to bold metallics, embossing powders add a touch of elegance and sophistication.

Take it a Step Further: For an extra touch of sparkle, try using embossing powders with glittery finishes like Tonic Studios’ Shimmer Powders. These add a dazzling effect, perfect for festive creations or projects with a touch of whimsy.

Experiment with Texture: Don’t limit yourself to smooth finishes! Explore embossing powders with unique textures, like crackle or linen effects, that add visual interest and a tactile element to your projects.

 Creative Applications of Washi Tape

Washi tape is no longer just for scrapbooking. Tonic Studios offers a delightful selection of washi tapes in various colours, patterns, and designs. But washi tape’s versatility extends far beyond simply adhering it to paper. Here are some creative ways to incorporate washi tape into your projects:

  • Create Layered Effects: Use multiple strips of washi tape in different colours or patterns to create stunning layered effects on your background.
  • Stencil Magic: Use washi tape as a stencil! Adhere it to your project surface, then apply paint, ink, or even Sparkle Spray for a unique design revealed once the tape is removed.
  • Faux Stitching: To achieve the look of stitched borders or embellishments, use thin washi tape in a contrasting colour to create a faux stitching effect.

Tip: Washi tape is also fantastic for masking areas you don’t want to be painted or inked, allowing for clean and precise designs.

The Enchantment of Metallic Embellishments

A touch of metallic magic can instantly elevate your project. Tonic Studios offers a variety of metallic embellishments like Gilding Flakes and metallic flakes that add a touch of luxury and glamour. Here’s how to incorporate them into your creations:

  • Gilded Accents: For a touch of opulence, apply gilding flakes or metallic flakes to specific areas of your project, like the edges of die-cuts or stamped images.
  • Metallic Backgrounds: Create a stunning metallic background by directly adhering gilding or metallic flakes onto your project surface using liquid adhesive or double-sided tape. This creates a dramatic base for your other embellishments.
  • Mixed Media Magic: Combine metallic embellishments with other mediums like paint, ink, or markers. The interplay of textures and finishes can create truly unique and eye-catching effects.

Remember: A little goes a long way with metallic embellishments. Start with a small amount and gradually add more until you achieve the desired effect.

Tonic Studios’ new embellishments offer a treasure trove of creative possibilities. From adding dimension with embossing powders to introducing texture with washi tape or a touch of metallic magic with gilding flakes, these embellishments allow you to personalize your projects and express your unique style.
