Floral mood

Hello everyone! It’s Anna here with two cards I made using Large Dahlia 2 stamp set, Nesting Peonies stamps and Geo Mountain Coverplate C, Geo Mountain Coverplate B dies.
Here is my first card.


To create this card, I started by stamping images (beautiful flower and leaves) from Large Dahlia 2 with Versamark ink onto a piece of watercolor paper and heat embossed them in Rose Gold. I colored these using Holbein watercolors and fussy cut them all.


Next, I adhered these to the watercolor background and stamped the sentiment from Perfect Fit Sentiments. To embellishe the card, I used Nuvo Glitter Drops – White Blizzard.


To make my second card I stamped images from Nesting Peonies  in Caviar, colored them all with Copic markers and cut out using Nesting Peonies Coordinating Dies. I created the background with Geo Mountain Coverplate C and Geo Mountain Coverplate B dies.


The ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment was stamped on a strip of a black cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed in white.

That’s all from me today ! Thank you for stopping by and have a nice day!


Jigsaw Hearts and Bokeh Fun.

Hello, it’s Lisa here.  I’m stopping by The Ton blog today to share a few cards I made with you.   Today I’m working with The Ton’s super cute Heart Jigsaw dies.   Have you seen them?   The Ton has two Heart Jigsaw dies that are sold separately.  They are the same size but the designs are a little different. One has puzzle pieces that are in a stitched design and the other actually cuts out each individual puzzle piece.  Today I’m using both!

Card #1 –  I used the following supplies from The Ton shop:

I decided to make a shaker card by first creating a bokeh background using The Ton’s Boke Burst Round stamp set.    This is such a fun stamping technique that involves stamping different sized circles in many different shades of color.   The more you overlap the circles, the more depth you will create in your background.  I used three different shades of pink and then I stamped some circles on top with  Hampton White Pigment Ink for a soft, dreamy affect.

After stamping, I diecut a stitched rectangle frame and then a heart from the middle.

I used a clear piece of transparency film and dimensional tape to create the shaker frame for this card.   The white card base is stamped with the large bokeh stamp.   I filled the shaker with some of The Ton’s Couture Mixes and adhered the frame.  I glued the heart on the outside of the shaker and added an embossed sentiment.

Card #2 – I used the following supplies from The Ton Shop:

I simply created this card using the leftover pieces of the bokeh background from the first card.

May cards 015best copy

This is a faux shaker card where I just glued the sequin mix directly into the heart.  No clear window was needed.  I love that the heart dies also cut out a thin frame around the heart.

Card #3 – I used the following supplies from The Ton shop:

I created the heart on this card by using the Heart Jigsaw Cut Version die.  You can see here the difference in the heart dies.  The cut version is an actual puzzle!  Each individual piece cuts out and can be assembled piece by piece.   Here I cut the heart out of a gingham background that I created using The Ton’s Haute Stripes Cling Background.

I stamped three pretty layered Wild Dahlias for a pop of color against the Lofty Mint.

Card #4 – I used the following supplies from The Ton shop:

For my final card today I strayed away from the hearts and just made a fun card for a special, tea loving friend of mine.  I started out by making another “gingham” background using that fabulous Haute Stripes Cling Background.    I stamped out teapot and cups using The Ton’s Copic friendly Caviar ink.  To make a lighter shade for the tea I stamped off the Spiced Chai ink on a piece of scrap paper once, then stamped in the cup.  I love the soft affect.  I colored the teapot and cup handles with Copic markers.

May cards 022ADJ copy

I made the tea pot a little more dimensional by stamping and coloring an extra lid.  Then I cut it out and popped it up with some dimensional tape.  I wrapped white embroidery floss around it and added a little tag for the tea bag.

Well, that’s all for me today.  And friends, I’m sad to say this will be my last posting here at the The Ton.    I’ll be stepping away from the design team due to some personal issues that need my attention at this time.  I have truly enjoyed every minute I’ve spent working here with Effie, her beautiful creations and all the ladies on The Ton’s fabulous design team.   My thanks to Effie for giving me this opportunity to play along with all of you here at The Ton.  I’ll see you around…..I promise!

Until then…….happy stamping!


Large Dahlias

Hi there!! Brenda, here with you today!!! I tend to lean toward pinks and purples for florals in the spring. That’s what I’m attracted to when selecting flowers at the nursery also. However, last week I chose some stunning red, orange & yellow dahlias for some containers in my backyard. I have three cards to share today that are inspired by those dahlias. They are all paired with a black and white stripe for a colorful, graphic feel.


The first card uses the stunning Large Dahlia 1. I began by stamping the large flower and the pair of leaves, along with the trio of leaves from the Large Dahlia 2, with Versamark and embossing with white embossing powder. I selected three colors of Tombow markers for the flowers and two for the leaves, and used them to watercolor the images. I added some additional depth and dimension with colored pencils, then cut them out with the Large Dahlia 1 & Large Dahlia 2 Coordinating Dies. The Minor Stripes Cling Background Stamp was used with Noir Ink on white cardstock. I cut a banner shape from the striped cardstock. I chose a cardstock that complemented my flower nicely, and trimmed it slightly to allow a thin mat of the white card base to show. The banner and leaves were adhered flat to the panel, while the dahlia was popped up with foam adhesive. The sentiment, from Wishful Rose, was heat embossed in white onto a strip of black cardstock. A generous scattering of Waltz White Sequins finished off the card.



Here is the second card…


This one uses the Large Dahlia 2 floral and trio of leaves images with the duo of leaves from the Large Dahlia 1 set. The Large Dahlia 2 & Large Dahlia 1 Coordinating Dies were used.  This time I cut a strip from the black & white striped cardstock and adhered it to the left side of my card. Sequin mix and sentiment from the same as above.


dahlia-2-3Finally, the third card…


This one was created in pretty much to same way as the last two. This time the Large Dahlia 3 & Coordinating Dies were used. I added narrow strips of the black & white striped cardstock to each side of the card base. The Couture Mix and sentiment are from the same as the first two cards.



I LOVE the way these turned out!! I don’t think the colors will replace my beloved pink and purple, but it was nice to step out of my comfort zone!! How about you…do you have particular colors that you always gravitate towards in the spring?

Cards with Geo Mountain Coverplate

Hello everyone! Olga with you today! I`m on vacation now! I was in big hurry before my trip and I made this cards pretty quickly, so you decide, did I succeed or not 🙂

I used Geo Mountains Coverplate B Die for the background of my first card. I glued the felling at an angle to the base. Than I stamped XOXO (XoXo Mini Set ) on black cardstock with Watermark ink and applied hot embossing with Gold Powder. 


I stamped “love you” of  Perfect Fit Sentiment with Noir Dye.



I used Geo Mountain Coverplate A for the background of my next card. I cut it on blue cardstock and glued on the base. Than I stamped Nesting Peonies on cardstock with Noir Dye and colored it. I stamped the title of Perfect Fit Sentiment on black cardstock with Watermark ink and applied hot embossing with White Powder. 




Thank you for your attention, have a nice day!

Happy Mother’s Day !

Hello crafty friends!!! Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommies out there 🙂 ! It’s TaeEun here today with a Mother’s day card and a Thank you card!

I colored the florals using alcohol inks in two different ways. I love to color large flower images using alcohol inks and The Ton’s floral stamps are just right for this technique!  For today’s cards I used Peony Duo and Coming Up Dahlias sets.

Let’s get started!

TT0513 1 WM

To create my first card I started by coloring a Yupo panel using Copic refills R22, RV25 and YR04. I stamped the peonies from Peony Duo on Yupo panel, before I colored the panel, to see where the colors should go. I left the stamps stuck on the MISTI to gold heat emboss the image, after the Copic colors were dry. After heat embossing I cut the peonies using coordinating dies and set them aside.

TT0513 1 CU1 WM

I did watercolor wash on a mixed media paper panel in Cerulean Blue and stamped the solid leaves from Large Peony 5 onto the panel in Soft Garden and Bright Fern while the watercolor wash was still wet. I splattered some gold ink on it.  After the panel was dry I cut it using Double Stitched Rectangle die and mounted it on a cardbase. I then placed the peonies on it using some foam adhesives

The sentiment is from Peony Duo and Coming Up Dahlias sets. I white heat embossed two sentiments on black, added thin strip of Adhesive Foil paper Gold underneath the black strips and foam mounted them onto the card. I finished off the card by adding some Medallion Gold and Glass Slippers sequins.

TT0513 1 4 WM

My second card is almost an one layer card.

TT0513 2 1 new

I gold heat embossed the Coming Up Dahlias on an alcohol ink cardstock and colored the image using alcohol inks. I applied the colors directly from the bottle on large areas and colored the small areas using a micro applicator. The colors I used are Sunshine Yellow, Sunset Orange, Valencia, Limeade and Botanical. I splattered some gold mixative on it and let the panel dry.

TT0513 2 CU1 WM


I then dry embossed the panel using the coordinating die. The sentiment is from Peony Laurel set. I gold heat embossed it on a strip of vellum and added it on the colored panel. I colored the sentiment using a white glaze pen. I like the opaque white on the sentiment! It is a little bit raised and shines in real life 🙂 ! I added two Glass Slippers sequins to finish off the card.

TT0513 2 3 WM

That’s it from me today! Hope I was able to inspire you with my cards!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a beautiful day!
