I stamped the birds on beige cardstock using Light Onyx, Smoky Quartz and Warm Hazelnut Dyes. Then I cut it.

I stamped the branch from Holly Branch and colored it with watercolor pencils.

I stamped the branch from Winter Chickadee set  with Found Topaz, Warm Hazelnut, Valentine Red and Lipstick red Dyes. Then I toned the background with Warm Hazelnut Dye and stamped the title using Noir Dye.

Alcohol Ink Coloring – Sweet Bouquet

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with a floral card featuring Sweet Bouquet stamp set. As you may know, I love coloring flowers.  The beautiful floral stamps by The Ton are super to color, as they have oft large flower images in the cluster.

For today’s post I colored the floral cluster from Sweet Bouquet stamp set using alcohol ink.

TT1211 1 WM

I stamped the image on an alcohol ink cardstock panel in a light ink to created the background. The stamped image worked as a guide for me while I added alcohol inks on the panel. First I sprayed lots of rubbing alcohol on the panel and dropped Shell Pink and Aqua alcohol ink on it and blended them by blowing using a marker spritzer tool. I repeated the process till I was happy with the result.

TT1211 2 WM

After the background was dry I gold heat embossed the Sweet Bouquet on it. I then colored the image by dropping the ink and moving the panel. Small areas were colored using a micro applicator. I used Amethyst, Purple Twilight, Flamingo and Shell pink for the large flowers. Amethyst, Turquoise for the small flowers and Citrus and Limeade to color the leaves. After the colored panel was completely dry, I splattered lots of Gold Mixative on the whole panel and let it dry.

TT1211 4 WM

I cut the colored panel with a Double Stitched Rectangle die.  I chose a navy cardbase and foam mounted the colored panel slightly tilted on it and cut off the excessive parts over the sides. The sentiment was cut using Hello word die four times from the same navy cardstock I used for the cardbase. I gold heat embossed one of the word die cuts partially and stacked all four die cuts together.  I finished off the card with some Medallion Gold sequins.

Hope I could brighten your day a bit with my spring-y card 🙂 ! I love the vibrant colors of the alcohol ink!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Wishing you a crafty day!

Rainbow Transformation

Happy Monday!! I have a cheerful, rainbow card to brighten up those Monday blues!!

I absolutely LOVE the Transformation stamp!! I recently received the Transformation Die set and couldn’t wait to use it!!

Rainbow-Transformation-1

I began by stamping the butterfly image with Caviar Ink and colored it in rainbow colors with Copic markers, then die-cut it out. I chose some Couture Inks in matching colors to stamp my background with the Mini Dots Cling Background Stamp. I chose Lipstick Red, Coralline, Beach Blondie, Soft Garden, Cali Blue & Iris Blooms; applied them to the stamp with sponge daubers and stamped it diagonally across a panel of white cardstock.

Rainbow-Transformation-2

I white heat embossed two sentiments, also from Transformation, onto black cardstock strips. I added the die-cut butterfly and sentiment strips with foam adhesive. A few Glass Slippers Sequins was the perfect finishing touch!!

Blue Christmas

Hi all. Vera here bringing you end of the week inspiration on behalf of The Ton.

I was cleaning up my craft room & was inspired to give some old sets some love. I reached for one of my favorite, Cozy Poinsettia set.

IMG2976.1
My coloring for the poinsettia was inspired from one of the card that was sent in by Susie Moore for Caring Hearts Card Drive. I just love the warm grey mixed with greens and blues. After I colored the poinsettia, I die cut it and put it aside.

Next, I stamped and die cut the ornament from Holiday Ornaments set. This set is perfect for mass production as you don’t have to color them. Simply stamp it in whatever color you want and it’s ready to go.

Arrange the poinsettia and ornament. Trim the excess part and adhere the pieces with foam adhesive. I did end up using the excess part and tuck it under the poinsettia to fill up some part.

IMG2976.2
For the sentiment, I colored a strip of white cardstock with Copic and then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from the same Holiday Ornaments set. Finished by adding some mixed size dew drops.

I love using unusual color combo and quite happy with the way this card turned out. Hope you enjoy today’s card as much as I enjoy making it. Thank you so much for stopping by here and may you all have a merry December. Cheers…

Noted Peonies (Have a fab day)

Hello, everyone! It’s Anna here today with a floral card I made using new Noted Peonies stamp set.

SONY DSC

I began by cutting out flowers and leaves from white cardstock using Noted Peonies SVG Coordinating Cut File. I stamped flowers with Beach Blondie, Peach Blossom, Valentine Red and Aspen Cocoa. The leaves were stamped in Deep Emerald and Everglade Moss. To create a card panel, I ink blended Cali Blue at the center of the piece of white cardstock (that was cut out with Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Small)), stamped Mini Dots and heat embossed them (mini dots) in white.

SONY DSC

I adhered all images on the card panel and foam mounted the card panel on a white card base.

Next, I made a sentiment. I ink blended Hot Tourmaline on the stripe of white cardstock and cut ‘Hello’ using Bold General Greeting Word Plate Dies from it. “Have a fab…’’ from Sunnies was stamped onto a stripe of black cardstock and heat embossed in white.

Lastly, I embellished the card with a few sequins from Queen Anne’s Lace Couture Mix.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Hugs,

Anna

12 DAYS OF DIY CHRISTMAS – DAY 5 – EASY SENTIMENT STAMPED CARDS

Hello and welcome back to Day 5 of our 12 Days of Christmas Crafts video series! Today, I have a couple of EASY PEASY stamped cards that you can make with basically one stamp. All you need is a sentiment! You can add some embellishments using small fern or foliage stamps.

For my first card, I used the Merry Christmas sentiment stamp from our Folk Art Christmas Tree set. For the second card, I used the happy stamp from our Coming Up Morning Glories set. I also used our little mini Holiday Add On Sentiment set for the little sentiment strips.

For the inks, I used our Caviar Hybrid black ink, Red Sangria Hybrid Ink, Bright Fern Dye Ink and Everglade Moss Dye inks.

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

These are the easiest cards to make and the sentiment stamped backgrounds really pack a punch. I love that the background pattern does double duty as a pattern and as the sentiment. I hope you guys enjoyed today’s project!

I hope I provided some inspiration on how to create quick, much needed cards. During the holidays, we run out of time to make card because life gets in the way. I wanted to provide some inspiration on how to create some quick cards for those that only have a few minutes in a day to craft.

I hope you enjoyed today’s projects! If you make anything inspired by our posts, be sure to tag us on social media (@thetonstamps). I’d love to see what you guys are making!

Dear Brenda was on the blog yesterday so I did not create a separate blog post for our Day 4 video. If you haven’t seen it, you can watch it below!

Stamps:

Inks: Caviar, Bright Emerald, Soft Garnet, Cali Blue, Soft Amethyst, Bright Fern

Morning Glory Greetings Hugs

Good morning, crafty friends!! I hope those of you in the US had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!!

I have a card to share that showcases the Morning Glory Greetings stamp set from the newest release!!

Morning-Glory-Greetings-1

I really wanted to try some no-line coloring with this set, so that’s just what I did!!

I began by stamping the Morning Glory Greetings image onto opposite corners of a panel of white cardstock with pale ink. I colored the blooms and leaves with Copic markers and added details with colored pencils. I trimmed the top and bottom slightly and added it to a panel of pink cardstock that matched my coloring.

Morning-Glory-Greetings-2

For the greeting, I die-cut “hugs” with a die from the Love & Hugs Word Plate Dies one time from pink cardstock and four times from white cardstock. I adhered the letters together with the pink ones on top and adhered them to the center of the card. A few sequins from the Pink Diamond and Pink Bokeh Couture Mixes finishes off the card.

Morning-Glory-Greetings-3

That’s it for me!! Thanks for stopping by today!! Have a great week!!

Morning Glories

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving to The Ton’s friends in the US! Hope you’re having a wonderful time with your family! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of cards featuring our new morning glory stamps, Coming Up Morning Glories and Morning Glory Greetings! And of course one of them is a Thanksgiving card 🙂 !

My Thanksgiving card is showing Coming Up Morning Glories.

TT1128 2 1 WM

I stamped and gold heat embossed Coming Up Morning Glories two times to make the floral cluster to fill about three quarters of my card panel. I colored the morning glories in Peony Color Burst and the leaves in various green shades.

TT1128 2 5 WM

The background was colored in yellow green and brown. I added lots of splatters in the colors I used to color and also in opaque white ink on the panel and let it dry.

To add some interest to my card I created a frame using two largest Double Stitched Rectangle dies and ink blended on the frame in Ballet Slippers.

TT1128 2 2 WM

I glued the central rectangle of the colored panel on a white cardbase and added the frame using some foam adhesives to the card. The sentiment is from Autumn Foliage stamp set. I white heat embossed it on a strip of kraft cardstock, cut one end in a fish tail and added it to the card. I finished off the card with a few clear Dew Drops.

TT1128 2 3 WM

To make the next card I used the coordinating cut files for Coming Up Morning Glories and Morning Glory Greetings.

TT1128 1 1 WM

I added two Coming Up Morning Glories cut files and two Morning Glory Greetings cut files to my Cricut workspace and placed them in a floral frame and welded them before cutting it from some heavyweight white cardstock.

TT1128 1 5 WM

I then stamped Coming Up Morning Glories and Morning Glory Greetings on the floral frame in Caviar Hybrid ink. My actual plan was to color the morning glories using Copic markers but the floral frame stamped in simple black on a black cardbase looked great for me. So I decided to go as it is and add a bit of gold to it.

I colored the center of the flowers in gold watercolor and splattered the gold ink all over the image and also on a black cardbase.

TT1128 1 3 WMx

The sentiment is from Coming Up Morning Glories set. I white and gold heat embossed it directly on the black cardbase.

The morning glory frame was adhered on the cardbase using some foam tapes. Medallion Gold sequins were my finishing touch for this card!

TT1128 1 4 WM

I hope I was able to inspire you with my cards today!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Wishing you all a happy Thanksgiving day!

Hugs,

TaeEun
