Beautiful Anemones

Hello, everyone! It’s Jenny here! Hope you are doing well and staying cool! I just got back from Las Vegas couple of days ago and the 110+ degrees weather there was almost unbearable! Hoping I could just stay home with a/c and craft away this weekend! 🙂

For today, I would  like to share a card I created with our new Fresh Cut Anemones stamp set and the Coordinating dies. This stamp set is so easy to layer and gives you the most beautiful anemone images ever! I can’t wait to share I how created this card so let’s get started!

I started off by stamping all the layers of the anemone and leaf images from the Fresh Cut Anemones Stamp set. I made 2 sets of them to create florals in 2 different hue. I used my mini MISTI stamping tool to stamp all the images. I stamped the purple florals in our Amethyst Collection Couture Color Inks and the Fuchsia florals in Orchid Collection inks. The stamens are stamped in Noir Dye ink and the leaves are stamped in our Crystal Garden Collection. I love that our ink collections are perfectly coordinated so that you don’t need to guess which colors to layer the images with. When I was done with stamping the images, I die cut them out using the Coordinating dies.

I moved on to the background next, by stamping the Minor Stripes Background Cling stamp on a smooth cardstock in Noir Dye ink. Then I brushed Iris Blooms Dye ink using the Clarity Stencil Brush on 2 corners of the panel. I also added bit of interest by die cutting the panel using the largest die from our (large) Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the striped background panel on A2 sized white card base and adhered the die cut images. I popped up some flowers and leaves with the foam tape to create some dimension.

I stamped the sentiment from our new Fresh Cut Anemones Coord. Outlines stamp set on a black cardstock in Versamark and heat embossed in white. I fussy cut the sentiment and adhered it on the card. When I was done with all that, I felt like the card needed little more something. So I adhered the Glossy Fine Pink Adhesive paper on a white cardstock, cut a thin strip, and adhered it on the left side of the card. I added some clear Dew Drops and Glass Slippers sequins and the card was complete!

For my card today, I created a fun tea setting card with our Tea Party set with a bright Anemone Garden backdrop.  I started off by heat embossing my tea cup with our Rose Gold embossing powder. Then I embossed the floral design and saucer with the same powder. To give the cup a little pop of color, I stamped the cup base and handle using our Cosmopolitan Pink Hybrid Ink (which matched my anemones perfectly!).

Next I heat embossed our Anemone Garden background stamp in our Rose Gold embossing powder. I watercolored the background with color bursts (Peony, Sap Green and Lemon Yellow). Next I trimmed my background panel and then adhered it to a pink card base.

Then I popped up my saucer and tea cup with some foam tape. To finalize my card, I stamped the sentiment from our Caffeine Crush set in our Light Onyx Dye Ink.

Sunnies Times Three

Hello everyone! It’s LauraJane sharing three fun cards using the new SUNNIES stamp set and coordinating dies.  How Cute are these?! Surely you can understand how I got carried away with ideas for this set. I checked out a Board on Pinterest and then began creating.

Sunnies 4x6 Clear water      18920872_10103562206077279_8049453082832746677_o

Starting with the first pair of SUNNIES at the top of the set, I stamped a rainbow background using Soft Garnet, Peach Blossom, Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Soft Garden, Cali Blue, and Soft Amethyst Couture inks. Then I embossed each one with Clear EP and trimmed the panel down with the 3 7/8 x 5 1/8″ die from the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Small) I then quickly used Copic N1 to add a hint of shadowing.IMG_9391bNext I heat embossed the sentiment onto black CS with White EP . Created a nest of DMC Metallic Thread – Light Silver and popped it into place with Foam tape. I think this kind of card  is perfect for anyone needing encouragement in our lives. IMG_9394

This next pair is my FAVORITE!IMG_9425

These SWEET SUNNIES embellished with pretty blooms, is Embossed with the gorgeous Rose Gold Embossing Powder and cut with matching the coordinating die.  Flesh color, Blush and Light Pink Zigs are what I used to color in the flowers. Olive green for the leaves. Then I shaded in the lens with Flesh color ZIG and added Glossy Accents for a bit of shine!

IMG_9424On a white piece of CS trimmed with the 3 7/8 x 5 1/8″ die from the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Small) , I heat embossed Brushed YOU with Rose Gold Embossing Powder. Then,cut it out with the Coordinating Die and In-Laid it back into place.

Layered the YOU panel onto a piece of CS stamped with Sunflower Garden Cling Background  with only the leaves colored in. This panel was trimmed with the largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large). The BG was stamped with Rose Gold Bangle Pigment Ink Set

In order to make that FUN sentiment work , I carefully cut the word you from the stamp in the SUNNIES set and inked it with Caviar onto white CS. Then colored it with the Peeled Paint Distress Oxide. Cut it down to make a small banner and glued it into place. Finished the card by embellishing with SUMMER SOIREE Couture mix which is the incentive mix from the SUMMER RELEASE. IMG_9410

I couldn’t leave the SUNNIES without playing with the Third pair!

So I quickly heat embossed them with Black Sparkle EP. I just love that kiss of glitter in this powder! The Coordinating Die made easy trimming out. Then I colored the open spaces and lens with Copic B000 and B02.IMG_9402

Going for a cool summer poolside look, I Heat embossed Haute Stripes with White EP and drew a shadow of color with Copic B000 under each stripe. Trimmed the panel with 3 1/2 x 4 3/4″ die from Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large).  I stamped the sentiment with Noir. Layered that onto a panel inked with the Rose Terrace Cling Background and  Couture Color – Blue Minis.IMG_9407

There you go! Three very different Sunnies. Hope you enjoyed seeing how I created with this set.

Guest Designer: Laurie Willison

Hey there, crafty friends, its Laurie Willison here today with a quick, clean and simple card.  I live in Kansas and we love sunflowers here, so when I saw this set called Fresh Cut Flowers, I knew I had to give it a try.

Untitled

I stamped a panel of sunflowers using my Misti and they were super easy to line up.  If you layer a small piece of acetate with your layering stamps, it helps to get them lined up perfectly and then you can pick up that stamp with the Misti door.

I used a scalloped, stitched rectangle die to cut out a portion of the stamped panel and then popped it up with foam tape.  I added in that adorable sentiment, which is also included in the set, in the same brown ink as the flower centers.  Easy peasy!

I hope you have enjoyed today’s card.  I have a couple other guest posts coming up, so I will be back soon!  Thanks so much to Effie for having me!

Peony Terrace

Hi Peeps! How’s it going? Vera here today to starts off the week at The Ton blog.

During the release week, I made a card where I stamped on patterned paper and I received quite a few comments on it where people mentioned what a neat idea that is. So, I thought for my card today, I want to show another stamping on patterned paper technique.
IMG_9960cp
When stamping on patterned paper, it’s important to keep in mind the pattern on the patterned paper itself. You don’t want to use patterned paper that has busy pattern here your stamp image would be lost among the pattern. And, you also want to consider the theme of the card.

For my card, I am using the beautiful Peony Terrace Cling Background stamp. And, since I plan on making sympathy card, I chose words pattern paper, so the flowers would stand out against the word pattern and it also convey the feeling of calmness.

I simply heat embossed the image with white embossing powder and then adding some colors with Copic markers to accentuate the flowers more.

IMG_9961
Once that done, I adhere the panel to the card base and added sentiment from Basic Labels set. Finished by adding a couple Seaglass Blue Dew Drops. I am really loving the way this dew drop looks on this card. The color simply match the mood of the card.

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. I hope you enjoy today’s card and thank you so much for stopping by here. May your week starts off wonderfully.

Happy Father’s Day

Hello and happy Father’s Day to daddies!!! I think there must be some who stop by The Ton blog, right :)? It’s TaeEun here today. I have two cards made using some of our new products from Summer 2017 Release to share with you.

We have released some gorgeous layering stamp sets like Eagle , Beer, Mountains and Wave, which work great for masculine designs. For today I’ve made a Father’s day card using Mountains stamp set and the sentiment from Beer.

TheTon0618 1 1WM

To start off I drew the blue sky on some watercolor paper with blue Distress inks and added the clouds with opaque white watercolor. Set it aside, I then stamped the mountain layers in Soft Garden, Deep Emerald and Everglade Moss and fussy cut it. The airplane and the hanging banner are from City Girls Park Life stamp set. I silver heat embossed them on a shimmer cardstock and die cut them using Coordinating dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on the banner in Noir. I then started assembling my card. The sky panel was glued flat on the card base, the mountain, airplane and the banner were added using foam adhesives. The bold sentiment is from Beer stamp set. I stamped it in Noir on a strip of shimmer cardstock and added it to the card. To finish off I adhered three Silver Dew Drops on the right upper corner.

TheTon0618 1 CU1WM

For my next card I wanted to watercolor our beautiful Summer Blooms 🙂 ! I enjoyed a quite relaxing coloring time and this is the result!

TheTon0618 2 1WM

I stamped the floral cluster from Summer Blooms on some Bristol Smooth paper. I used Distress inks for stamping as I wanted to do no-line watercoloring. I colored the image using Zig Brush markers. After done with coloring I cut it with Coordinating die. As the colors I used for my flowers are rather light, I decided to put them on a dark background. I chose a textured purple cardstock and splattered some blue and silver pearl watercolor on it. I die cut four half circle lines, which is a part of the Pragmatic Wreaths , from some silver cardstock. On the card base I stamped Minor Stripes in Grape Crush. I then foam mounted the purple panel, added the wreath die cuts to embellish the panel and foam mounted the Summer Blooms. I die cut the sentiment using hugs word die from silver cardstock, on which I adhered Glossy fine Transparent adhesive glitter paper. This transparent adhesive glitter paper is awesome, as you can create a glitter paper in any color! To finish off I scattered some sequins from Valentine Icing, Pink Diamond and Royal Garden Party.

By the way the backdrop on my pictures is the backdrop board Bokeh Glow from our Boutique!

Hello crafty friends 🙂 I hope you are having a great day! Eunji here with a floral shaker card created with our new Fresh Cut Anemones stamp set.

Let’s start!

IMG_4415

I started by stamping an anemone image from our Fresh Cut Anemones (Coord. Outlines) on watercolor paper. Then I colored the images with Dr.Ph.Martin drawing ink in Peacock Blue, Iris Blue and Golden Brown. After they dried, I stamped the petals from Fresh Cut Anemones and drew more details with a Zig metallic pen. Yes, it has so much detail! Then I fussy cut leaving a thin white border but coordinating dies are available for this set. Next I made the frame with white card stock which I cut with a knife. Then I adhered a piece of clear acetate under the frame and added an anemone and leaf image and paper pieced them with foam tape. I put our Raspberry Sparkle Couture Mix into the shaker window and mounted the craft card panel. Lastly I added the sentiment which I die cut using our Thank You Word Dies on white card stock.

Father’s Day w/Beer

Father’s Day is fast approaching, but don’t fret! You still have time to whip up a spectacular card for the special dad in your life! Don’t tell dad, but I’ve been known to whip one up the morning of – shhh, our little secret!

Janette here to share with you a card beer lovers will enjoy in yellow tones.  Use darker, rich brown ink shades for a rootbeer lover. The Beer stamp set will make a fabulous rootbeer or even rootbeer float! Yum-O!

IMG_7200 copy.jpg

I began layering by stamping in my lightest yellow, The Ton Stamps Vanilla Frosted Cupcake Couture Color. Then onto Beach Blonde and Amber Citrine to finish out the beer. The glass is stamped in Crystal Pewter and then Smoky Quartz. I stamped the froth in Vanilla Frosted Cupcake as a guidline, knowing that I was going to cover it with the Marvy Snow Marker.

IMG_7225.jpg

The Marvy Snow Marker is a liquid in a marker type container. Press the tip to expel liquid to coat area. Then use a heat tool and watch as the liquid puffs. I then coated the puff with Clear Wink of Stella for a more realistic effect.

IMG_7198.jpg

I stamped the sentiment in Caviar Hybrid ink from the Beer stamp set onto the large banner from Basic Banners and Die cut it. After applying Copics in C00, C2 and C4 to the banner for depth, I fussy cut the beer (dies available) and popped up on a Distress Ink background.

 

I hope I have sparked some creativity in you today with this super easy stamp layering beer mug!

Old and New…

Good morning! Emily here with you today to share some projects created using both our new and a few older sets. I sometimes get so caught up in the new releases that I forget how beautifully the new sets will work in conjunction with the previously released sets. Today, I’ve got a pair of cards for you using some of our newer items with the previously released Marvelous Perfumes. Let’s get started with the details!

For both projects, I stamped and heat embossed the perfume bottles from Marvelous Perfume on some heavyweight vellum. For this card, I used a “stained glass” technique. After stamping and die cutting the pretty perfume bottle with the coordinating dies, I used my Copic markers to color on the back of the vellum. Coloring on the back softens the color tremendously, so if you try this technique, be sure to use bright, deep colors, but the coloring combined with the matte finish on the vellum creates a beautiful softness. I also die cut a banner from the brand new Basic Banners set, heat embossed it with the same platinum embossing powder, and added some shading with my Copics.

blue perfume WM

I stamped and die cut several of the previously released Sunflower Cluster stamps onto some watercolor paper and added color with my Daniel Smith watercolors. On the card base, I used my Clarity Stencil Brushes to add a bit of a halo around the edge of the card base using some Azurite ink. I arranged the flowers in a wreath shape and adhered the flowers, perfume, and banner to the card base with dimensional adhesive. A lot of steps, but a pretty finished product, I think!

blue perfume detail WM

For my next card, I die cut, stamped, and heat embossed another of the perfume bottles from Marvelous Perfume on some more vellum. Next, I stamped and die cut the individual blooms from the brand new Watercolor Wreath stamp set using Orchid Crush, Plum Wine, Soft Garnet, Peach Blossom, and Ocean Teal inks. I also stamped one of the pretty Wildflower Cluster stamps (one of the promotional Gift With Purchase sets that you can earn with a qualifying purchase until June 22, 2017!) using Orchid Crush and die cut it with the coordinating die.

vellum perfume WM

For my card base, I used my Clarity Stencil Brushes and Soft Garnet ink to lightly blend a halo in the top left corner of my card front. After I had arranged my floral cluster and vellum perfume bottle in the corner of the card base, I used Press ‘n Seal to pick it up, then added liquid adhesive to the die cuts behind the perfume bottle and dimensional adhesive to the die cuts in front of the perfume bottle, taking care to overlap some of the flowers with the perfume bottle in order to hide the adhesive! I then stamped a sentiment from the new Penned Sentiments using Plum Wine ink onto a strip of white card stock, which I then notched on the end to create a flagged sentiment strip, which I adhered using dimensional adhesive. The final step was to add a smattering of Pastel Pink sequins.

Well, that’s all for me today! I hope you’ve enjoyed these projects… I pulled out a few older techniques and products for this one! Love when everything works together so nicely. 🙂
