The Ton’s Summer 2017 Blog Hop

Welcome to the Blog Hop for The Ton’s Summer 2017 Release!!! This is so exciting!! Have you enjoyed all the new stamps & dies from this release? Today we have so many wonderful creations from the design team and guest designers & ton’s (see what I did there?!) of prizes to win!!!

You should have arrived here from the fabulous Lydia Fiedler. Complete hop list at the end of this post. Let’s get this party started!!For this card, I stamped the Peony Terrace Cling Background with Vanilla Frosted Cupcake ink and used Copic markers to color the flowers and leaves. I traced the bottom with a lid from a bowl and cut that and a pink mat for the panel. How fun is this Sunnies set? I stamped it with Caviar ink and also colored with Copics. I used the Sunnies Coordinating Dies to die cut the image, then cut the inside of the glasses with an exacto knife. I adhered acetate and fun foam under the glasses…creating a shaker with Blue Lagoon Couture Mix. The sentiment is also from the Sunnies set…it was stamped with Hollywood Star and Caviar ink. I used Wink of Stella Clear Pen over the pink flowers for a little more sparkle. Glass Slipper Round Confetti Mix was used to accent the sentiment. I had a ball making this card…so much fun!!!

I had to color the Anemone Garden Cling Background stamp again,,,I told you I wanted to color it in ALL THE COLORS!!

I started by using Versamark ink and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I colored this beautiful image with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers in vibrant blues and greens. I embossed the sentiment from Fresh Cut Anemones Outline onto a strip of vellum with gold embossing powder also. I then adhered the vellum strip to the panel, using liquid adhesive behind parts of the sentiment. The watercolored panel was die-cut with the Double Stitched Rectangle Die (Large). A piece of Gold Glitter Tape was placed along the bottom of the vellum to help in adhesion. Pale Gold Nuvo Drops were used in the center of the flowers, with gold glitter added for more bling.

I have one more card to share. You know I LOVE the florals and Effie does such a great job with them!! I seriously could not stop creating with this release!!!

For this card, I started by heat embossing the images from Large Peony 4 & Large Peony 5 with Rose Gold Embossing Powder. I colored the flowers and leaves with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and die cut with Large Peony 4 & Large Peony 5 Coordinating Dies.  These peonies are such fun to color!! I heat embossed the Peony Crush Cling Background with clear embossing powder onto a piece of peach cardstock. I cut a circle in the upper right corner and created a shaker with Summer Soiree, Spring Fawn, Guava Sparkle & Coral Necklace Couture Mixes. I adhered the leaves flat onto the background panel and popped the peony up with some foam adhesive. The banner is from Basic Banners and sentiment from Penned Sentiments, both also heat embossed with Rose Gold Embossing Powder. The Basic Banners Coordinating Die was used to die-cut the banner and it was placed over the peony. I have a friend getting married in a couple of weeks and I think she will be getting this card!!

Whew!! What a week!! Hope you enjoyed all the projects this week…thanks for hanging out with me!! I hope I have brought a little inspiration to your world!! Do you have a favorite from the release?? I would love to know!!

The Ton’s Summer 2017 Release – Day 4

Happy Thursday & welcome back to day 4 of The Ton’s Summer 2017 Release!! Today is the day!! All of the fantastic sets we have been showing you this week are available for purchase…YAY!!!! Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for a blog hop featuring some amazing guest designers.

Here is a look at the stamp sets we are featuring today…coordinating dies are also available for all of these except the background stamp!!!

The Peony Terrace Background Cling Stamp is soooooo beautiful!!!

I began by white heat embossing the background stamp onto watercolor paper and watercoloring with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors. The sentiment is from the Large Peony 4 set and was also heat embossed onto vellum die cut with the smallest of the  Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large). some Glass Slippers Round Confetti was placed around the sentiment, allowing me to place adhesive behind each one to attach the vellum to the pink cardstock. I finished with a rainbow of Couture Mixes, including Pink Diamond, Cotton Candy Puff, Belle’s Dress, Kiwi Smoothie, Blue Lagoon, Summer SkiesAmethyst Quartz & Violet Sprinkle.

If you love the look of watercolor, but struggle with it…then Watercolor Wreath & Watercolor Bouquet (incentive set) are perfect for you!! So easy to create a watercolor look!!!

I used my Misti stamping tool and colored right onto the Watercolor Wreath with Tombow markers. I misted the image with water from my Mini Mister and stamped it onto Bristol paper. I used the same technique with the Watercolor Bouquet image and stamped around the perimeter. The pink and purple markers were scribbled onto an acrylic bIock and diluted with water before splattering across the panel with a paint brush. I used a Wink of Stella Clear Sparkle Pen on the flowers in the wreath and splattered some of it onto the panel as well. The sentiment is also from Watercolor Wreath and was stamped by coloring the purple markers onto the stamp also.  The panel was mounted onto purple cardstock die-cut with the Double Stitched rectangle Die (Large). Violet Sprinkle & Summer Sioree Couture mixes finished off the card.

The Ton’s Summer 2017 Release – Day 3

Welcome back to day 3 of The Ton’s Summer 2017 Release!! If you love floral stamps as much as I do, you are going to be in heaven. I LOVE peonies and then throw in some anemones and I am one happy girl!!!

Here are the sets being showcased today…all available for purchase on June 8th. Coordinating dies available for all stamps except the Anemone Background:). (Poppy & Sunflower Border dies will be available 6/16)

I am in love the combination of peonies and anemones in this Summer Blooms set!!!

I began by stamping the floral image twice with Versamark Ink onto Bristol paper and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to watercolor the image in complementary colors of purple and yellow. The image was die-cut with the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Small). I stamped the sentiment from the same set (I’m in LOVE with this sentiment!!!) onto vellum with Versamark Ink and white heat embossed. A strip of yellow cardstock was place in the middle of the panel and the vellum sentiment strip was wrapped around that. The panel was mounted onto purple cardstock and then a top-folding card base. I used a mixture of Kiwi Smoothie, Violet Sprinkle & Guava Sparkle Couture Mixes. I had to add raindrops onto the flowers to reinforce the sentiment with Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal Drops. The drops look pink on the purple watercolored peonies.

This next stamp set is one my favorites of the entire release!! I want to color this in so many different color combinations!!

This time I chose to white heat emboss the Anemone Garden Background Cling stamp on Bristol paper and color with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers in soft shades of peach and green. The sentiment is from the Summer Blooms set and was also white heat embossed onto a vellum strip. The image was die-cut with the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Small). and mounted onto peach cardstock, before adhering to a top-folding card base. Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal Drops (I told you I was addicted…wink!!) were added to accent this beautiful floral. What an fun set to color and so easy just to pop on a sentiment and you’re done!!

My niece just graduated from high school on Saturday, so I combined a couple of stamps to create this card for her…

I began by stamping the Sunflower Border Cling Stamp onto Bristol Smooth paper with Versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder. Next, I watercolored the image with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and die-cut with Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large). The Basic Banner set was used to stamp the sentiment, also with Versamark  ink and gold embossing powder. This stamp set has great words/phrases to create a variety of sentiments!! I fussy cut the banner (there is also a coordinating die available) and popped it up with some foam adhesive in the center of the card. A mix of Belle’s Dress & Hot Cocoa Couture mixes finished off the card!!

The Ton’s Summer 2017 Release – Day 2

Happy Tuesday & welcome back to day 2 of The Ton’s Summer 2017 Release!! Does anyone else have problems with masculine cards? Raising my hand!! Well, I don’t think I will have that problem any longer. Today we are creating with sets that are great for guys!! I have three cards to share with you today!!!

Here is a look at the stamp sets we are highlighting…coordinating dies are also available for all of these!!!

The first card I made will be going to my dad for Father’s Day. This set has some fantastic sentiments and the mug is so easy to layer and is so realistic.

I have a feeling I will be using this Beer set a lot!! First, I stamped the “Happy Father’s Day” sentiment onto white cardstock with the Misti using Cali Blue Ink. The stamped panel was then cut with the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large). I stamped the beer mug with Beach Blondie, Amber Citrine, Found Topaz, Crystal Pewter, Smoky Quartz & Light Onyx Inks. for the final layer of “foam”, I used Versamark ink and Silver Pearl Embossing Powder for a little sheen. This was also cut with one of the dies from the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large) and matted with a piece of blue cardstock, leaving a tiny border. I then coated the entire mug with Glossy Accents. I stamped the banner from Basic Banners and used the Holiday Add-On set to stamp the sentiment, both with Caviar Ink. Copic markers were used to shade the banner for a little extra dimension and also to outline the sentiment. I used a stylus and some Beach Blondie Ink to put small dots between the words on the background panel. The smaller panel was popped up with some fun foam and attached to the larger panel, then adhered to a top-folding card base. Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal Drops were then used around the mug to create a bubble effect. I think my dad will really enjoy receiving this for Father’s Day!! It really has a lot of shine in real life!! Here are a couple of other angles…

 

My next card is created with the Wave stamp. This stamp is so unusual…I’ve never seen anything like it!!

See what I mean? There are so many possibilities!! I chose to create a card that would be great for many occasions…wedding, anniversary, graduation, travel, etc. I began by cutting a circle from a post-it to create a mask and placed it where I wanted the sun to be setting. Clarity Stencil Brushes were used with Soft Amethyst, Cali Blue, Rose Quartz & Beach Blondie inks to create the colors of the sunset. I removed the mask and brushed Beach Blondie to color the sun. Next, I stamped the Wave with Cali Blue, Parisian Blue & Deep Sapphire inks. Molding paste was placed in the areas where the “foam” would be (white areas) and sprinkled with glitter. I used some Stickles (Frosted Lace) with the molding paste and along the top of the wave. After letting everything dry overnight, I drew in a small island with palm trees using a black Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker. The sentiment is from the Watercolor Wishes incentive set stamped using Noir ink. 

And now for the 3rd card…

How about that eagle?!!!! So awesome!! I used the Eagle layering stamp using Warm Hazelnut, Spiced Chai, Dark Roast, Amber Citrine, Found Topaz, Crystal Pewter, Smoky Quartz, and Noir Inks. What a cool stamp set!! I die-cut the eagle with the Coordinating Die. The Basic Banners set was used with Caviar ink to stamp the banner and sentiment, then also die-cut from the Coordinating Die. Next, I die-cut and red & white striped piece of patterned paper with the Double Stitched Rectangle Die (Small) and matted with blue and red cardstock. I splattered some blue ink across the panel and adhered the eagle and banner with some foam adhesive. I used a white gel pen to accent the banner and sentiment, then used some Glass Slippers Round Confetti for a little shine.

The Ton’s Summer 2017 Release – Day 1

Welcome to Day 1 of The Ton’s Summer 2017 Release!!! This release is full of the beautiful floral stamps that The Ton is known for, with a few things for the men in your life too!!

Here are the stamps we are showcasing today…all of the floral stamps also have coordinating dies:)

Here is a look at the first card I created…

I began by stamping the beautiful Fresh Cut Anemones Coordinating Outlines onto white cardstock with Caviar Ink, using a bit of masking. I colored the images with Copic markers and added some additional detail with colored pencils. This awesome sentiment is from the same set and was also stamped with Caviar Ink. Do you have that song running through your head now? You’re welcome…lol…that’s what happened to me!! Next, I stamped a butterfly from Beautiful Butterflies 3 and die cut with the Coordinating Die and colored to match the flowers. The Double Stitched Rectangle Die (Large) was used to die-cut the panel, then it was double matted with black and pink cardstock. I popped the panel onto some fun foam and layered it onto a piece of pink striped pattern paper (from all those years of scrapbooking) and a top-folding card base. The butterfly was also popped up with some dimensional adhesive. I added some details to the flower with a yellow gel pen and some Morning Dew Nuvo Drops (a new addiction of mine!). A sprinkling of sequins from the new Summer Soiree (free with $75 purchase) and Pink Diamond Couture Mixes finished off the card. Here are a couple of other views…

This is the second card for today…

It was created very similar to the first card. I started by stamping the fabulous image from the Anemone Bouquet set with Caviar Ink. No masking necessary…this bouquet is already made for you & is so much fun to color!! I proceeded to color with Copics and colored pencils, accenting with the yellow gel pen again. This time I stamped the sentiment from the Penned Sentiments set (what a great set, I just LOVE the fonts!!) onto vellum with Versamark Ink & heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. The vellum was wrapped around the colored panel, which was then matted with black and purple cardstock and adhered onto a top-folding note card. For the finishing touch, I added sequins from the Violet Sparkle, Pink Diamond & Hot Cocoa Couture Mixes.

If you love anemones the way I do, this release includes some must-have stamp sets!! I hope I have provided you with some inspiration today!!!

The Ton June Challenge

Hello!! Thanks for stopping by today!! It’s June 1st and time for a new challenge at The Ton!!! We have a beautiful color palette this month!!! Blue & pink are two of my very favorite colors, so I couldn’t wait to use this palette!!I chose to create a shaker card and stuck really close to the colors in the inspiration photo.

I stamped the butterflies from Beautiful Butterflies 3 with Versamark Ink and heat embossed them with Ranger White Embossing Powder on Bristol paper. Zig Clean Color Markers were used to color the butterflies and then they were die-cut with Beautiful Butterflies 3 Coordinating Dies. I used two of the Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies to create a frame, adhered a piece of clear acetate to the frame, then foam adhesive to the back of that. The butterflies and a few confetti pieces from the Glass Slippers Round Confetti Mix were then adhered to a watercolor background panel. I placed three couture mixes, Glass Slippers Round Confetti Mix, Pink Diamond and Glass Slipper Sequins into the center of the panel. The frame was carefully placed over the watercolored panel. The sentiment is from the Pretty Peony set…this set has some great sentiments, not to mention the beautiful peony. It was also stamped with Versamark Ink and embossed with Ranger White Embossing Powder onto a strip of pink cardstock. The large butterfly and sentiment was adhered to the bottom of the card. This card has so much sparkle and movement in real life…it’s really fun!!

Make sure to head over to The Ton Challenge Blog for all the details…you have all month to play along!! You could win a $50 gift code to The Ton Shop!!!! I can’t wait to see what you create!!!
