A coordinating card set using multiple backgrounds.

Hello crafty friends, it’s Lisa here!    I’m stopping by The Ton blog today to share a coordinating thank you card set that I made using SIX of The Ton’s 6×6 Cling Background stamps.  Yep, that’s right, I said SIX!  Silly me! I couldn’t make up my mind which of these fabulous stamps to use so I decided to just experiment with all of them and make each card a little bit different.

 

The Ton cards 029ADJ

In keeping with a theme for this card set, I decided to stamp each background with The Ton’s Noir black dye ink.    This gives all four cards a cohesive look, even though each card is stamped with a different pattern.

 

The Ton cards 002ADJ copy

I stamped the Daisy backgrounds with Noir ink onto four 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ pieces of Vellum cardstock and then heat embossed with Ranger Superfine Clear embossing powder.   I flipped them over and colored with Copic markers, being sure to make each one just a little different.   This is such an easy way to color your images on vellum.    You don’t have to be so meticulous with shading and you can use the boldest, brightest colors in your collection.  Be sure not to color the embossed side of your image though because that can ruin the tips of your Copic markers.   When you turn your image back, over the colors will be softer.

I trimmed the flowers out with scissors, following closely along the edge of the clear embossing and then adhered with Ranger Multi-Matte Medium glue directly onto the card.  I was careful to only apply my adhesive along the edges and in places where it wouldn’t show through the vellum.

For this card I also heat embossed the “Many Thanks” sentiment from The Ton’s Sunflower Bouquet stamp set.  I used Hampton White Pigment ink and Ranger Superfine White embossing powder on black cardstock for a crisp white image.

 

The Ton cards 004ADJ copyI stamped in Noir and clear embossed this large “thanks” sentiment from the Peony Notes C stamp set.

 

The Ton cards 011ADJ copy

This card was just a bit bolder with the thick black Haute Stripes Cling background.  I popped up the sentiment on a circle diecut from The Ton’s Bokeh Burst Round coordinating die set.  The “Thank You” sentiment is from the Painted Peonies stamp set.

 

The Ton cards 005ADJ copy

This one is my favorite!  I absolutely love the large Polka Dot Cling Background and how  the dots are so visible underneath the vellum daisy.  Instead of stamping a sentiment I used a diecut “thank you” from the Bold General Greeting Word Plate die set.   I cut the “thank you” out twice from black cardstock and glued them together to make the letters stand out even more.  I added a little sparkle to all of these cards by adhering some clear sequins from The Ton’s Glass Slippers Mix.

 

The Ton cards 035ADJ copy

Well that’s all for me today.  I hope you enjoyed seeing how all of these wonderful backgrounds worked together to make a four card set.  Thanks you so much for stopping by and until next time……..Happy Stamping!

Hello everyone! I’m here today with my last third card as a guest designer. Last time I promised you to tell who got the card with the gold glitter dress.
SvetaFotinia-5728
This card card I made for a special women, my fitness trainer who turned 70 this year (wow!). She trained me when I was a school girl, then I back to her a year ago and a few months later I find out that I’m pregnant (yay!). Now we both hope that my baby Eva will also join her aerobics school in a few years. 
SvetaFotinia-5729
Now let’s back to the card I made for today. I went with the black and white and 1 color scheme again this time using blue color. Delicate Polka Dots Cling Background is always a good idea, especially for the flowers. Classic look of black on white polka dots I completed with fussy cut anemones from Anemone Wishes Stamp set, that I colored using watercolor brush pens. For the sentiment I used the same stamp set.

Finally to complete the card with an eye catching accent I added silver glitter to the flowers.
Thanks Effie and everyone who took time to stop by here and/or leave kind comments. 
Hugs, Sveta.

Peony Blooms

Hi peeps! How’s it going? Vera here today to bring you some Friday inspirations.

I am still gaga over the latest release from The Ton. So much beauty in one release. Let’s get on with the 1st card, shall we?

IMG_3142 (1)
I love, love, loovvveee the Peony Laurel. It such a beautiful set. So, for my card I first stamp the the Peony Laurel with The Ton Caviar Hybrid ink pad, die cut it and colored with Copic. Next, I work on the background and stamped the Toned Squares with Blue Diamond and Ballet Slippers.

Trim and adhere the stamped panel to the card base. Then I adhere the Peony Laurel with pop dots. Stamped the sentiment (also from Toned Squares). Then, just when I thought I am done, I saw one chickadee from Nesting Peonies floating between the messy pile on my desk (left over from previous project) and I decided it needed a home. Hah… so, it went on my card and it’s the perfect finishing touches that this card need.

Next, is another floral card. For my 2nd card, I played with Blooming Peony Garden cling background stamp.

IMG_3145 (1)
I inked the stamp with Miami Cool ink pad. This is such a pretty blue, isn’t it? Then I die cut the birthday word using Bold General Greeting Word Plate dies directly on the panel. I want the word to pop up a bit, so I die cut and layer the birthday word from 3 layer of cardstock. When I adhere the stamped part,  I offset it slightly so a white  border will show to make the word more visible.

The word happy is from Beer set, which I stamped and heat embossed with Rose Gold embossing powder.

There you go. Two peony bloom cards that I hope you enjoy as much a I enjoy making them. 🙂 That’s all from me today and may your Friday be a fabulous one. Cheers…

At first, I stamped the beautiful flowers using Couture Color – Vanilla Frosted Cupcake , Couture Color – Beach Blondie Dye, Couture Color – Peach Blossom Dye and Coralline Hybrid. The leaves were stamped with Couture Color – Minted Collection. The buds were stamped with Couture Color – Peach Blossom Dye and Coralline Hybrid. Then, I fussy cut all images.

To create the background, I used Buildable Woodgrain and Crystal Pewter Dye and Smoky Quartz Dye. The sentiment from The Most Interesting Cardmaker 2.0 was stamped on the stripe of grey cardstock and heat embossed in white. Next, I adhered all images onto my card and added some sequins from Summer Soiree Couture Mix.

My second card features Daisy (Full View) Close Up Cling Background stamp.

I started with a piece of watercolor paper and stamped the big daisy image on that using Versamark Ink. Then I embossed it with Rose Gold embossing powder. I colored this beautiful background with Holbein Watercolors. The ‘Happy’ from Beer was stamped onto the stripe of black cardstock and heat embossed in white.

Motorcycle Boss

Hello crafty friends! Hope you’re having a great week so far!  It’s TaeEun here today with a card featuring Motorcycle Boss from our March flash release. It is a great stamp set for masculine projects or for Father’s day!

Motorcycle Boss 4x6 Clear

I combined the cool motorcycle with the beautiful Always Cherry Blossoms image to create a scene of a motorcycle ride in a Spring day :). It’s already Mid-April but I’m still waiting for Spring to come here where I live.

TT0418 1 WM

I started off by watercoloring the cherry blossom tree cluster and a single flower falling down from Always Cherry Blossoms set. For no line watercoloring I stamped the image in Ballet Slippers (flowers) and Vanilla Frosted Cupcake (branch and leaves). I colored the dark background first in payne’s gray and gold and then watercolored the flowers and leaves.  I colored the bottom part of the panel in payne’s gray to represent the ground.

TT0418 CU1 WM

 

I splattered black and gold onto the panel. After the panel was dry I cut it using a Double Stitched Rectangle dieMotorcycle Boss set contains some unique sentiments. I picked one of them and stamped it on the bottom of the panel in Noir.

In the picture below you can see the shine of the golden elements!

TT0418 2 WM

I then mounted the background panel on a dark gray cardbase. At that time I took a picture of the panel as I thought it could be a beautiful floral card as it is :)! What do you think?

TT0418 before WM

I gold heat embossed the motorcycle, colored it in opera pink, cut it using coordinating die and foam mounted it onto the card. For more contrast I added on the flower center and stamen dots using black and white glaze pens. To finish off I added some Glass Slippers sequins.

TT0418 CU4 WM

Hope you enjoyed looking my card! Thank you so much for stopping by!

Wishing you all a beautiful Spring/Autumn day!

Hugs,

TaeEun

Hello everyone! I’m so happy to show you my second card as a guest designer. This time I want to highlight the Haute Gala Dress stamp set. 
SvetaFotinia-5021
The stamp itself  is pretty large so this card is also made folding pale grey standard size cardstock in a half and making a cut it by the longer side. I stamped outline image with black ink and the inner part of gorgeous lady in a dress heat embossed with gold glitter embossing powder. I decided to stay on a clean and simple side, so added a sentiment in black and few sparkles in gold. Combination of grey, black and gold I completed with touch of white making white borders around the card with white gel pen.

Three more Masculine cards

Hello everyone! Anna here with three cards I made using motorcycle stamps and golf stamps.

SONY DSC

At first, I stamped two motorcycles from Motorcycle Boss with Caviar, colored with Copic markers and die cut them with Motorcycle Boss Coordinating Die. To create the background, I ink blended Miami Cool Dye, True Navy Dye and Smoky Quartz. Next, I stamped “city” from the City Buildings Cling Background with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it in white.

SONY DSC

I adhered the motorcycle images to the card. The sentiment from Motorcycle Boss was stamped with Noir onto the stripe of grey cardstock.

SONY DSC

For the second card I started off by stamping a motorcycle image from Motorcycle Layering Set using these inks: Crystal Pewter, Smoky Quartz, Caviar and Parisian Blue. I die cut the motorcycle with Motorcycle (Layered) Coordinating Die.
Using the sentiment stamps from Motorcycle Boss, Crystal Pewter and A2 sized Kraft cardstock I created a background of my card. Next, I made the panel using Crystal Pewter dye and Masking paper (masking technique). I stamped “Best Wishes” from the Motorcycle Boss in Everglade Moss.

SONY DSC

I affixed the background to the card base, adhered white panel onto the background and mounted the motorcycle image on that panel.

SONY DSC

For my third card I stamped a golf field and clouds from Golf Course Layering Stamps using Soft Garden Dye, Bright Fern, Deep Emerald, Everglade Moss Dye, Warm Hazelnut Dye, Found Topaz, Arctic Sky Dye and Crystal Pewter. Then, I fussy cut them out. Next, I stamped the sentiment from Golf Therapy in Smoky Quartz onto the card base.

SONY DSC

The ball image was stamped with Crystal Pewter Dye. Lastly, I adhered the golf field and three clouds to the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!

Guest Designer: Sveta Fotinia

I’m so excited to join The Ton blog as a guest today! I will show you today a big monochrome card with City Buildings Cling Background stamp. I fell in love with this stamp from the first sight and wanted to highlight this image. Background stamps usually serve as a background only (hehe, pretty right) but this time I want it to become the main focal point.
SvetaFotinia-4827
I folded standard cardstock in a half and cut it a bit by the longer side. Then I adhered washi tape around the borders to create a frame and stamped the image with black ink. I added a stylish sentiment using Haute Gala Dress stamp set.
SvetaFotinia-4828
To add an interest to the one layer card I filled most of windows on the image with gold glitter and put a tiny heart along with one of the houses.
SvetaFotinia-4831
Card turned out very stylish and simple and can be added to your masculine cards ideas as well, cause I presented it to my boss 😉
SvetaFotinia-4832
Thanks for your attention and see you soon 😉
