I cut out a rectangle from Double Stitched Rectangle Dies in the center and along the edge of my base. Than I stamped the sentiment from I got you stamp set with Caviar Dye. I decorated my card with Dew Drops for the finish.

I used Fresh Cut Carnations for second cards. I just stamped one of the carnations layer by layer using Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Beach Blondie and Amber Citrine Dye. Than I took special paper and alcohol inks and created the background. I applied the coordinating dies to it and to the first carnation.

Hello, everyone! I have my first seasonal card of the year. I am still on a bit of a break from my watercolors so I’m stamping! I used our Winter Cardinal and Peony Notes for this card today.

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by stamping the body of the cardinal in our Lipstick Red Dye ink (Noir for the black part). Once I stamped the cardinal, I stamped our Peony Notes Bundle (Valentine Red, Found Topaz, Aspen Cocoa, Deep Emerald and Everglade Moss Dye Inks) and die cut that cluster image.

Next I stamped some pine branches from the cardinal set in our Deep Emerald. I made sure to stamp extra branches since I knew I would be building up a bit of a scene.  Once I had all my stamped elements die cut, I blended on some Cobalt Breeze dye ink onto the top portion of an A2 panel using a stencil brush. All I did was some light ink blending for my winter sky. Next, I white heat embossed my snow clusters to the top half of my panel.

Once the heat embossing was complete, I added stitching to the edges of my card panel using the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles Large die collection. Next I assembled my card using dimensional foam tape. I loved the look of the cardinal nestled in a combination of this beautiful peony cluster and pine branches!

For my sentiment, I white heat embossed the sentiment onto black cardstock. I added a silver glitter sentiment strip behind the black one and popped that up onto my card. Lastly, I added Clear Rhinestones and popped up the cardinal tail with one piece of foam tape.

I love my florals and I love my birds so this card really made me happy! Our Winter Cardinal Set was inspired by my block printing project from last year. What do you think of my project for today? I hope you enjoy my post!

See you all next time and thanks for stopping by!

Birthday Anemones

Hello crafty friends!!! Brenda, here with you today. I hope your week is off to a great start!

I absolutely love anemones & The Ton has several stunning anemone stamp sets. I combined two on today’s card…Anemone Border Cling Background & Anemone Wishes.

I began by stamping the Anemone Border Cling Background stamp with Versamark Ink onto Bristol paper & embossed with white embossing powder. The panel was colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers & cut with the largest of the Double Stitched Rectangles (Small) Dies. The largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle (Large) dies was used to cut a panel from purple cardstock. The watercolor anemone panel was adhered to the purple one. Next, the Anemone Wishes stamp set was stamped with Noir Ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder, before coloring with Zigs. The Anemone Wishes Coordinating Die was used to cut out the image, as well as a piece of purple fun foam. The purple pop of color is a fun surprise when viewing the card from the side. The sentiment, from The Most Interesting Cardmaker 2.0, was heat embossed in white onto a black cardstock banner, before popping up with dimensional adhesive. Lastly, a sprinkling of Glass Slippers Round Confetti Mix adds some bling.

Thanks so much for joining me today!!! Have a wonderful week!!!

Hello and welcome back, everyone! I am here with another video and post using our Daisy Close Up (3/4 View) background stamp!

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by heat embossing this beautiful bold image onto a 4×6 watercolor paper panel using our Rose Gold embossing powder. Then I watercolored the image using a Cherry Red and Violet Dr. Ph Martins Radiant liquid watercolors. I started off by adding Cherry Red watercolor to the inner edges of my daisy petals (I wet the area prior to adding color with clean water). Then I took a #4 round brush and pulled the color out towards the edges of the petals in a light flicking motion creating a feathered effect.

Once my base color was complete, I applied the same technique using the Violet watercolor. However, I made sure to only add accents of purple to the petals. I wanted to make sure that the pink base was not overpowered. After my daisy was painted, I used the Sap Green liquid watercolor to paint the leaves.

I also added some extra deep purple accents using my Deep Violet and Violet zig markers. Next I dried my panel and die cut it into an A2 panel using the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles Large Die Collection. Next, I die cut the wonderful sentiment right into the panel using the wordplate die from our Bold Amazing Greetings die collection.

Once the panel was die cut, I adhered the panel onto a side folding A2 base. Next I popped up all the die cut letters back into the negative space. Then I die cut the scripty you sentiment from our Scripty Thank You dies onto white cardstock. I adhered this piece right onto the end of my “wonderful” sentiment. I just love the combination of these bold dies with our scripty greeting dies! Lastly, I embellished my card using our Clear Rhinestones.

That is all from me today. Thank you for stopping by!

Hello, Autumn!

Hello Everyone! It’s Anna here with a fall card I created using Autumn Wishes stamp set.

I started off by stamping images on watercolor paper with Versamark Ink and heat embossed them in white. I colored my watercolor card panel using Holbein Watercolors.

I stamped the sentiment “Sending fall greetings… “ with Couture Color – Noir Dye. Next, I ink blended Couture Color – Peach Blossom Dye on the stripe of white cardstock and cut ‘Hello’ using Bold General Greeting Word Plate Dies from it.

Lastly, I mounted the watercolor panel on a white card base and added a few sequins from Watermelon Twist Couture Mix.

Hello and welcome back, everyone! I have a large butterfly project for you today using our Monarch Butterfly Pop Up dies, Nesting Peonies Stamp Set and Marvelous cling background stamp.

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started by creating my butterfly. For this project, I am not creating the pop up element inside my card. Instead, I’ll be using the detailed butterfly on the face of my card. I die cut the detailed butterfly onto some black cardstock. I also die cut the solid wing dies onto some of my homemade pink holographic cardstock using adhesive paper.

Next I assembled my butterfly by adhering the detailed wing to the solid pink holographic wing. Then I assembled both wings together by sliding the two body parts together. Next I glued down all the body portion flaps down and cut off the tabs.

Next, I white heat embossed our Marvelous Print Background stamp onto watercolor paper (5.5×5.5 inch) and created an Orchid and Indigo Color Burst watercolor wash. Once that panel was dried, I mounted it onto a white square panel that was slightly smaller than 6×6 inches. This matted panel was then adhered onto a 6x6inch top folding gray cardbase.

Next I white heat embossed our Nesting Peonies clusters twice onto watercolor paper and did some loose watercoloring using Color Bursts (Orchid, Sap Green, Pthalo Green, Terre Vert, Burnt Umber). Once my clusters were dried, I die cut them using their coordinating dies.

Next I cut my clusters in two and three sections which I then tucked and adhered behind my butterfly’s wings. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment (from our Nesting Peonies set) onto a white sentiment strip using our Noir Dye Ink. This strip was then mounted onto a black strip. The mounted sentiment strip was then adhered to the top portion of my card. I made sure to lightly bend/fold up my butterfly wings and peony clusters off the base to give the project some extra dimension.

That is all from me today! Thanks for stopping by!

Thinking Of You Daisy

Hi peeps. Vera here today, bringing you The Ton inspiration for this lovely Thursday. Can you believe it’s already September? I was like, only 4 more months before the end of the year! Yikes, time flew by way too fast.

Anyway, for today I decided to play with what I consider semi fall colors? Hah… is there such a thing? I consider yellow, orange, brown as hard core fall colors. My card has the soft orange, brown and a dash of bluish teal.

IMG2375
So, I haven’t play with the cling background stamp lately. After debating which set to play with, I settle on Daisy (3/4 view) Close Up.  I stamped and heat embossed it with Rose Gold embossing powder. Then proceed with watercoloring the image.

Once it dry, I die cut the word hello (from Bold General Greeting Word Dies set) directly on the panel.

IMG2374
Then repeat and die cut the word three more times from plain white cardstock and layered it all, before adhering the part that die cut from the panel as the very top layer. I adhere the top layer slightly off, so you could see the white line, thus make it more stand out.

IMG2376
To finish, I added the thinking of you sentiment on a strip of cardstock. The sentiment is from Brushed Hugs set. Oh yes, I also added some mixed size dew drops.

Well peeps, that’s all I have for today. Hopefully today’s card inspire you to reach out to play more with The Ton cling background stamp or if you haven’t try it before, give it a twirl. 🙂 Thank you for stopping by here. Cheers…..
