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!!!
