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!!
