My Stampin Up Farewell | Hello Tonic Studios GIVEAWAY!


Hello everyone, 

Today  is my farewell as Stampin' Up! Demonstrator... I'm not really saying goodbye to  Stampin' Up! products as they will be always  part of my stamping adventures!

And I'm also  saying hello to  Concord & 9th, Neat and Tangled and Tonic Studios!  

From now and ahead I'll be sharing ideas and inspiration using many different products and as part of these new experiences  I want to share a couple of GIVEAWAYS with you today (more info at the bottom of this post)

I mixed and matched products  to make  a very small collection of projects  using 1 of the products in the giveaway .  This is  a collection of aqua pens, 12 intense colours perfect to apply a variety of techniques.

I also made 3 videos to demonstrate some techniques... but just a few as the possibilities for card making and mix media are endless.


Using the black Aqua Flow pen I had my first time hand lettering ...  good enough for someone who depends on PCs to write everything.


Watch video to see how I made it? I use a light box and trace the image on watercolour paper... Yes!!! I have cheated a little bit but that is  the price to pay when you are so bad at hand writing.

When I was little I used to trace draws by pasting the original to a window, then I  place on top printer paper  and the window worked as a light box... I also had a glass table and I put a lamp underneath so that was also  a light box and  I could work better ( never get stock because you don't have the tools)


I also tested the pens to applying easy watercolor techniques... they works like butter!


Here videos to show you how I do it...




I also stamped the tag below using the ink of the pens.. I applied " marker to stamp technique" ,  the pens worked just like a normal water based marker. The image is not as sharp as using ink pads but it is also beautiful ...



I'm feeling grateful and blessed  for having the opportunity to share with the Satmpin' Up! family 27 exciting months .

I owe Staminp' Up!  one of the best experience that any crafter can have, any papercraft lover will be proud of having such amazing school.

I have to be honest as Stampin' Up! taught me,  shared with me the very best in terms of stamping, they create a good atmosphere for Demonstrators, they offer  career opportunities like no others. However,   I had to make a very hard decision and  I dropped  my Stampin' Up! Demonstratorship voluntarily  last Monday February 6 - 2017 . 

My reasons to drop...


I have been seduced by other  brands,  stamps and other craft supplies too !! PLOP!!!! and my beloved  Stampin' Up! do not accept a third party in their relationships with Demonstrators. That's why!

For those who doesn't know what I'm talking about,  Stampin' Up! have a policy in which Demonstrators can't promote any product or activity related to  competitive brands ( blog hops, collaborations, publications, product reviews, etc) There are exception for  those Demonstrators who are members of Design Teams for other companies but they  can only receive products  in compensation for their work and not payments in return.

I think that as a crafter I have the right to use, promote and make reviews of any products I use and I love, no always looking for a compensation... I want to be able to mention them and share about them as well.   I also think that is fair enough that a creative person can make a living from their art, and get compensation  for the hard work and ideas and of course for the time and experience.  At some point  I though that these and other restrictions in the Stampin Up Demonstrator Agreement  goes beyond of what I was keen to accept in first place.  I accepted  it and lived whit that the last 2 years but is time for me to fly! 

That's all!  I hope you enjoy the  projects, the videos and the giveaway.

  8. Hi Bibi, i have always loved your videos and could watch them for hours. You are such a fantastic artist and i totally understand your reasons for leaving Stampin' Up! I'm pleased you re still using their stamps though. Butterfly Basics has to be one of my most favourite stamp sets and i just love the card you have made.
    I would certainly love to be in with a chance of winning some new pens to try out. You make them look so easy to use. Not sure my results would be as good as yours!
    Best wishes for your future. Roz Benjamin xxx

I am so pleased you are going to carry on with your videos. I look forward to seeing all your creations in the future. I would also love to win the Nuevo pens as they look amazing.
