Peony Fields

Hello crafty friends! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a pair of cards I made using the gorgeous Peony Fields cling background stamp.

I’ve created two panels in different ways and cut them to mix and match.

TT0617 1 5 WM

The first panel was created by heat embossing Peony Fields image on a shimmery cardstock panel in silver. I left the stamp in the MISTI tool and stamped the second panel. I scribbled Tombow brush markers on the stamp, sprayed water on it and stamped the image on a watercolor paper panel. I repeated the process until I was happy with the result.

Now I have two panels with exactly the same image on them. I cut both panels using the largest Double Stitched Rectangle die and then cut them along a line I drew on the back. I then switched the lower part of them and made them into two cards.

TT0617 1 CU2

I foam mounted the upper parts on light gray cardbases and adhered the lower parts flat on them. The sentiments are from Chandelier set. I white heat embossed them on gray cardstock. I cut the sentiments in strips and added them onto the cards. To finish off I added some Glass Slippers sequins.

TT0617 2 CU2 WM

That’s it from my side for today! Hope I could show you how to add more interest by mixing and matching parts of two differently stamped panels.

Wishing you all a happy week!

New SVG Cut Files: Pivot Pop Up and Pop Up Butterfly

Hi, everyone! I’m back to announce the release of two new interactive/pop up SVG cut files! We have a new Twist and Pop or Pivot Pop Up digital cut file and our new Lovely Butterfly Pop Up cut file!

Let’s introduce our Twist and Pop SVG Cut File. This cut file has two images that can be cut out with your Cricut or similar machine. Once assembled, you have

I have a Cricut and Scan N Cut tutorial for this SVG. The assembly of the mechanisms is the same. Watch the Cricut tutorial for assembly instructions (begins at 4:28). The only difference between these two videos is that you have to manually score the cut images when using the SNC to cut out your files.

Supplies used to create the inside of this pop up card:

Next up is our Lovely Butterfly Pop Up SVG Cut File!

I wanted to design a more whimsical butterfly pop up design and this is what I came up with. If you’re looking for physical butterfly pop up dies, we have three beautifully realistic pop up dies in our shop: Monarch, Morpho and Swallowtail.

Assembling this butterfly is so easy! Watch this tutorial to see how:

We also have a coordinating non-interactive SVG cut file for this butterfly. You can use this to decorate the front of your card with your surprise butterfly inside!

That’s all from me today! I hope you enjoyed seeing all the new digital goodies for today.

Layered Stamping and Ink Blending Cardmaking Tutorial

Hey, everyone! I am back with a picture tutorial on how to create this card using our Fresh Cut Roses and Small Grid Stencil SVG Cut File.

I started off by stamping these gorgeous roses with our Ruby Collection layering inks. For the leaves, I used our Minted Collection Inks. Once the stamping was complete, I fussy cut the images and set them aside.

Next, I used my grid stencil to blend this pattern onto another piece of white cardstock with our Bright Emerald Dye Ink (which is part of our Minted Collection Bundle). I blended the pattern starting from the lower right hand corner of my card panel. I did not blend the entire panel. I made sure that the pattern blended into the panel as we blended away from the right hand corner.

Once my ink blending was complete, I started popping up my roses and leaves with foam squares.

Lastly, I stamped my congratulations sentiment (from our Basic Labels) with our Caviar Hybrid Ink. After I cut the sentiment out, I popped it up over my floral cluster.

That completes my project for today! You can head over to our Instagram Stories for the next 24 hours to watch a few video clips on how I made this! Thanks for stopping by and making The Ton a part of your day!

Hugs,

Effie

Scenes with Cling Background Stamps

Good morning everyone!! It is a busy time of year for me!! We are traveling most weekends and only being home for about 3 1/2 days during the week doesn’t leave a lot of time for me to work in my craft room!! I usually stamp some images and grab some markers to get some coloring done when I have some downtime during the weekend. Last week I stamped a couple of the new cling background stamps and some images to go along with them to make a couple of scene cards.

The first one pairs the Scenes: Doorway with the City Girls: Chic Happens set…

HB-Balloon-girl-1

First, I stamped the Scenes: Doorway stamp onto Bristol paper with Smoky Quartz ink, and the girl with the balloons from City Girls: Chic Happens with Noir ink. Then I watercolored them both with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. The background panel was cut down to an A2 size using the largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Lg). The girl was fussy cut and adhered to the background panel. The greeting, also from City Girls: Chic Happens, was white heat embossed onto a charcoal cardstock strip.

HB-balloon-girl-2

HB-balloon-girl-3

The second card combines the Scenes: Parisian Café with the City Girls: Café Date.

Coffee-paris-1

This one was made pretty much to same way as the other. I stamped the Scenes: Parisian Café and the City Girls: Café Date with Smoky Quartz ink and colored them with Zigs. The background panel was also cut with the Double Stitched Rectangle Die (Lg.). After fussy cutting all of the images, all I had to do was create the scene and adhere all of the elements. The sentiment, from City Girls: Café Date, was white heat embossed onto a charcoal cardstock strip.

Coffee-paris-3

I had so much fun combining these different images to create these fun scenes!!

Thanks for stopping by today!! Have a wonderful week!!

Hummingbird & Garden Foliage

Hi peeps! How’s it going? Vera here today and I am bringing you more digital cut inspirations as I am still obsess with The Ton digital cuts collection.

Let’s get on with the card, shall we?

IMG2889
For this card, I used Basic Roses SVG Cut File on my Brother Scan ‘n Cut. Before removing the cut out, I inked it up with some distress oxides. Once I am happy with the result, I remove the cut out and instead of using the line part, I used the inner part and used the line part as guidelines to glue down the parts.

Then, I worked on one of my favorite cut file, the Hummingbird Layering. For this one, I went all sparkly by using glitter paper for all the parts of the hummingbird. And, I love, love, love the way the hummingbird turned out.
IMG2889.1
For the eye, I dab black enamel accent and I feel this little detail do make a difference. Finished the card by adding birthday sentiment from Happy Florals set.

As I mentioned earlier, I am a bit obsessed with all the cool digital cut files that Effie been created, that for today I ended having 2 cards instead of just 1. Yay!!

Now, for my next card, I make it even more fun by making a shaker card.

IMG2883
For this one, I cut out the Garden Foliage Coverplate, colored it with various ink pads and then adhere it to a piece of acetate that I cut just slightly smaller than the foliage frame. Then I mix various color sequins from The Ton sequin collection and adhere the foliage frame over the mix. Finished the card by simply stamping the sentiment on a strip of cardstock.

I hope you enjoy today’s cards as much as I enjoy making them. And, I actually finished another sparkly hummingbird, but I still need to create a card for it.

That’s all for me today peep. May your weekend starts off wonderfully. Cheers….

Birthday cards with layered stamps

Hello, everyone! It’s Anna here today with a couple birthday cards I made using our new floral stamps. Using layered stamps is the best way to create quick cards, when you have no time to coloring.

My first card features the Abstract Peonies stamp set.

SONY DSC

I started by stamping images in Couture Color – Rose Quartz, Hollywood Star and Red Sangria – pink flower; Beach Blondie, Peach Blossom and Coralline Hybrid – orange flowers; Red Sangria, Lipstick Red and Plum Wine Dye – red flowers; Deep Emerald and Everglade Moss – leaves. I then fussy cut them all.

SONY DSC

To create the background, I ink blended Vanilla Frosted and Peach Blossom on an A2 sized white cardstock. I adhered flowers and leaves on the card. Next, I stamped “Happy Birthday” from Happy Florals onto a stripe of black cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed it in white.

Lastly, I embellished my card using Pink Diamond Couture Mix.

The next card is showcasing Rose Wonderland Print stamps.

SONY DSC

At first, I cut out a card panel from a white cardstock using Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large) and stamped florals and foliage onto it. For stamping I used Beach Blondie, Coralline Hybrid and Deep Emerald ink.

SONY DSC

Then, I cut out “HAPPY” from gold glitter cardstock using Bold General Greeting Word Plate Dies. I ink blended Beach Blondie and Coralline Hybrid on a stripe of white cardstock and cut out “birthday”. I adhered words on a piece of vellum and fussy cut them. I then assembled the card together and added a few Dew Drops to finish it up.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great day, friends!

Coverplate SVG Cut Files

Hello everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of cards I made using our new digital cut files. And also I used the beautiful Abstract Peonies set from May Release for the first card.

Effie has designed beautiful layering floral cut files, cut files for stencils, coverplate cut files along with some very unique designs like Crashing Wave Layering Coverplate cut files. You can find them all in the digital category of The Ton shop. Stop by and take a look, if you haven’t done it yet. You don’t want to miss them out!

For my first card I used Garden Foliage coverplate as the backdrop for the floral cluster created using Abstract Peonies.

TT0603 GF 1 WM

I started off by stamping the peony flowers and leaves from Abstract Peonies set. I used Vanilla Frosted cupcake, Beach Blondie, Amber Citrine for the yellow flower and Peach Blossom, Coralline Hybrid and Coral Cavern for the coral one. The layers of the leaves were stamped in Bright Emerald and Hot Turmaline.  I then added the outlines and stamens of the flowers in Noir. I fussy cut all the images and set them aside.

TT0603 GF CU2 WMx

Next I cut the Garden Foliage coverplate from a heavyweight white cardstock panel with my Cricut. I then started making the background with a watercolor wash. In order to match with the colors I used for the florals, I chose sap green, naples yellow, cerulean blue and chartreuse Color Burst for the background. I first scattered the pigment powder on a watercolor paper panel and sprayed clear water. I repeated the process until I have a result I was happy with.

Tt0603 GF 3 WM

After the background panel was completely dry I adhered it on a white cardbase, added the Garden Foliage piece onto it and arranged the peony cluster as shown in the picture.  I white heat embossed the sentiment from Happy Florals set on a strip of black cardstock and added it to the card. I finished off the card with some Smoked Emerald and Glass Slippers sequins.

TT0603 GF 4 WM

The next card is showcasing Anemone Bunch Coverplate SVG cut file.

TT0603 AB 1 WM

Actually this card design has started with a mistake. The first cut was failed as I chose a wrong pressure of the blade so that the image wasn’t cut through. I used the failed one as the base. I could color the image as I had the outlines traced with the blade 🙂 ! I used Copic markers to color the flowers and leaves. I then blended Lemon Drop, Soft Garden and Soft Garnet in the background.

TT0603 AB CU4 WMx

After splattering opaque white ink on the whole panel I let it dry. I cut Anemone Bunch Coverplate once again from a heavyweight white cardstock this time with the right pressure. I mounted the colored panel on a white cardbase and adhered the Anemone Bunch Coverplate on it.

TT0603 AB 3 WMx

The sentiment was also cut using a digital cut file. It is one of the sentiments included in Mod Scripty Sentiments SVG cut file. I cut it three times from some white cardstock, stacked them together and added it onto the card. I then colored a strip of white cardstock using orange and yellow Copic markers and white heat embossed the sentiment from Brushed You set on it.  I cut it in a banner and glued it below “you”. I finished off the card by scattering some Glass Slippers Round Confetti.

TT0603 AB 4 WM

That’s it for today!

Thank you so much for looking! Hope I was able to give you some inspiration for a crafty day!

Happy Crafting!
