Christmas Pop-up Box Card

Hello! Olga is here.

Today I want to show you my pop up box. I love interactive cards but sometimes I am too lazy to do it!

The designing of the box card  are pretty simple so I’ll give your attention on the filling of the box.

SAM_8410

For the back wall of the box, I applied Scenes Fireplace with Crystal Pewter Dye and colored it. For the other parts I used Haut Stripes Cling Background with water-soluble ink.

SAM_8414

For internal filling of the box, I used some of the elements of stamps Fireplace Accessories and Coordinating Dies, Fireplace Holiday Accessories and Dies, Holiday Ballet and Dies. I colored them with water-soluble ink.

SAM_8424

I used overlay to attach flag line and some other elements. To decorate the front of the box I used Christmas Mini Cluster Stamp . I just stamped and colored it and then I cutted it using Coordinating Die. I also applied  Cozy Poinsettia Stamps Set  and Basic Banners Stamp and Dies for the title.

I used Noir Dye for stamping all elements and sentiment of my Christmas box.

Holiday Ornaments

Hi everyone! How’s it going? Vera here today. This past week been quite a whirlwind as this is the last week of Caring Hearts Card Drive (The Ton is one of the generous sponsor for the card drive). Let just say, every night after work, I sleep, eat, breath cards.

As of last night I have unpacked about 15,912 cards. Yep, my dining room been taken over by cards.

Anyway, since I am surrounded by Christmas cards, of course for today I also have to go with Christmas theme. Using the beautiful Holiday Ornaments set I made 2 cards that I hope you enjoy as much as I enjoy making them.

For this first card, I simply stamped the ornaments in various colors and then covered them with Sparkle Noir sparkle marker. Finished by stamped the sentiment & adding some sequins from Blue Ice Couture mix.

Next I went with watercolor.

IMG_0186
I just love this color combo! I first watercolor the card panel and then let it dry. Once it dry, I stamped and heat embossed the ornaments and hand drawn the lines with glitter pen. For the embellishment, just like t he first card, I used Blue Ice Couture mix.

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. May your Friday be a fabulous one. Cheers….

Christmas Cards – Silver&Blue

Hello, everyone! It’s Jenny here today and I’d like to share couple of holiday cards I created using Vintage Christmas Block stamp set and Christmas Sweater stamp from our November Release! These stamps are gorgeously designed and you could create beautiful cards without a lot of work! I kept my cards silver&blue, which is one of my favorite color combination for holiday cards.

Let me show you the first card!

Ton_Nov2017Release_sweater_FE1

I stamped the Christmas Sweater image and heat embossed in silver on a watercolor cardstock. Then, I sprinkled some Ultramarine Blue and Prussian Blue Color Burst powder and spritzed water to help the pigments to bloom out over the entire image. I repeated the process until I was happy with the result and dried the panel using the heat tool. I die cut the panel using the largest layer from our Large Double Stitched Square Dies.

Ton_Nov2017Release_Sweater_CE1

On a white 5.25″ square card base, I adhered Glossy Fine Silver Adhesive paper to create the background and popped up the main panel on top using fun foam. I created the sentiment banner using our Basic Banner stamp set and the Basic Banner dies. I stamped the sentiment from our Holiday Add-On Mini stamp set in True Navy Dye ink. I placed silver thread on the card and popped up the sentiment banner over it using foam tape. I finished the card by adding some Silver Metallic sequins.

Ton_Nov2017Release_Sweater_CE2


 

Here’s the 2nd card!

Ton_Nov2017Release_Block_FE1

I started off by stamping the Vintage Christmas Block image on a smooth white cardstock in Cali Blue Dye, Deep Sapphire Dye, and True Navy Dye ink. I created a gradation look by applying ink colors on stamp using the sponge daubers. With the help of the MISTI tool, I repeated the process few times to achieve the look I was happy with. Then, I trimmed down the panel and heat embossed the edges with Silver Glitter embossing powder. I wrapped the silver thread around the panel and adhered fun foam on the back, ready to go on the card base.

Ton_Nov2017Release_Block_CE1

Next, I smudged the edges of a white A2 card base with True Navy Dye ink pad to match the main panel. I adhered the Glossy Fine Silver Glitter Adhesive paper on a white carstock, trimmed it down, and adhered it on the card base. Then I adhered the main panel and completed the card by adding some Clear Rhinestones and Glass Slippers sequins.

Christmas cards in sets

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today sharing 4 Christmas cards in two different designs.

I usually make a single card with a design. But this time I played around with different colors and placements and made two cards for eace design. So I have 4 more Christmas cards ready for this season :)!

The first set was created using Cozy Poinsettias.

TheTon1115 set1 2WM

TheTon1115 1 1 WM

To create this card I white heat embossed Cozy Poinsettias image two times on a beige cardstock. I splattered opaque white paint on the panel and cut it using Double Stitched rectangle die slightly smaller than A2. I gold heat embossed Cozy Poinsettias  again on a Bristol smooth panel, watercolored it and cut it with the coordinating die. I foam mounted the beige panel on a white cardbase and popped up the poinsettia cluster on it. The sentiment is from Cozy Poinsettias as well. I stamped it in Noir and added some sequins from Glass Slippers round confetti.

TheTon1115 1 CUWM

The second card in the same design like the first one is in blue and purple.

TheTon1115 2 1WM

This time I heat embossed Cozy Poinsettias in gold pearl embossing powder and colored the poinsettia cluster with Prismacolor colored pencils. I used a blue cardbase to match it to the image. The sentiment was white heat embossed. Some sequins from Gold Medallion were my finishing touch.

TheTon1115 2 CUWM

Next two cards are in traditional colors, red and green :)! I created watercolor wash as backdrop for Brushed Merry in green and red and embellished the cards with Good Tidings Cluster and Christmas Mini Cluster sets.

TheTon1115 set2WM

TheTon1115 3 1WM

The watercolored background panel was cut with Double Stitched rectangle die and glued on a white cardbase. I stamped Brushed Merry in Noir on a separate white cardstock and cut it with my cutting machine. I heat embossed it in silver glitter embossing powder and clear heat embossed it again. The images from Good Tidings Cluster and Christmas Mini Cluster were white heat embossed on some watercolor paper , watercolored and cut using coordinating dies . The Brushed Merry was glued on the background panel and the poinsettia clusters were foam mounted onto the card. I scattered some mini clear sequins from Deck the Halls Couture Mix and added white Pico Embellisher on the berries to finish off the card.

TheTon1115 3 CU2WM

On my last card I white heat embossed Brushed Merry on the watercolor background panel. I drew a shadow line around the letters in red Spica glitter pen.

TheTon1115 4 1WM

I repeated the same process like the previous card. To finish of this version I added some sequins from Elf Stockings and Deck the Halls Couture Mix.

TheTon1115 4 CU2WM

That’s all from me today :)! Hope you enjoyed looking my Christmas cards.

Pretty Plumeria

Hello Everyone! It’s LauraJane with a card featuring the Pretty Plumeria stamp set:))

TT-Plumaria-LauraJane

  • I stamped the largest image and a single bloom from Pretty Plumeria onto Bristol smooth watercolor paper with Crystal Pewter ink. Then I did some no-line coloring with ZIGGYs.
  • When finished coloring I used the coordinating die to cut the images out..I cut several of the large image to stack up for dimension.
  • Then I took a panel that I had prepared ahead of time with some spray inks and traced an outline a bit larger than the plumeria cluster and fussy cut that out. Also trimmed the edges with Double Stitched Rectangle Dies .
  • Wrapped some silver thread and embroidery floss around and through the opening then adhered it to the white cardbase. And  placed the Plumeria cluster and bloom in the center of the fussy cut area.
  • Created a thin banner strip for the sentiment from Brushed HUGS. Embossed with White EP. Popped it up with dimensional tape.
  • Finished with Nuvo Glitter Drops:)))

Happy Holidays

Hello fellow card makers!! Brenda here with you today!! I am sharing a holiday card with a striking color combo. I thoroughly enjoyed coloring these beautiful images!!

Happy-Holiday-Red-&-Purple1

I started off by stamping the Holiday Love Poinsettia image onto white cardstock with Caviar Ink, then coloring with Copic markers and colored pencils. Next, I cut the image with the Holiday Love Poinsettia Coordinating Die. After figuring out placement of the die-cut image, I stamped the Christmas Mini Cluster image toward the top and bottom of a top-folding note card. Those images were also stamped with Caviar Ink and colored with Copics and colored pencils. I adhered the die-cut poinsettia with foam adhesive between the images on the card base for added dimension. The sentiment is from the Holiday Movie Sentiment Mini set. It was stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder on a strip of black cardstock. I cut the strip into a banner by notching each end, then adhered it with foam adhesive as well. The berries on the sprigs were dotted with a yellow gel pen. I also added gold stickles to the center of each flower. Black Nuvo drops were placed around the images to tie it all together.

Christmas everywhere

Hello Everyone! Anna here and I have two Christmas cards to share with you today.

SONY DSC

For the first card I started off by stamping images from City Girls: Winter Edition, colored them with Copic markers and cut out using City Girls: Winter Edition Coordinating Dies. Then I stamped a Mini Pine Tree with Couture Color – Crystal Garden Collection (The stars were stamped from Christmas Tree with Beach Blondie) and fussy cut it.

To create background I masked off the top two-thirds of the Scenes: Dept. Store Cling Background and stamped the image on the white cardstock with Light Onyx Dye. Next I ink blended Cali Blue Dye, Miami Cool Dye and Crystal Pewter. The sentiment was stamped with Noir.

SONY DSC

I adhered the background on the card base and affixed all images to my card with foam tape . Lastly, I added Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel to finish off the card.

My second card is shaker card.

SONY DSC

I started by stamping and coloring images from City Girls: Snow Day, Fireplace Holiday Accessories and Fireplace Accessories. To cut out all them I used City Girls: Snow Day Coordinating Dies, Fireplace Holiday Accessories Coordinating Dies and Fireplace Accessories Coordinating Dies.
Then I stamped the Christmas tree with Smoky Quartz. The second layer was heat embossed in glitter white. The Christmas tree balls were stamped in Valentine Red and the stars were stamped in Crystal Pewter. I cut out these images using Christmas Tree Coordinating Dies.

SONY DSC

I masked off the top two-thirds of the Scenes: Fireplace and stamped the image on a A2 sized white cardstock (card panel) with Light Onyx Dye. For the shaker I made a window using three frames that I cut out with Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Small). I affixed all images to the card panel with foam tape. The sentiments from City Girls: Winter Edition were stamped in Noir.
To create background I used Mountains stamp set and Couture Color – Pewter Collection. I ink blended Crystal Pewter at the top of the background, stamped stars from Star Trails and embossed them with glitter white.

SONY DSC

I added sequins from New Year Couture Mix and Blue Ice Couture Mix into the shaker and assembled the shaker elements together.

That’s all from me today! I hope you enjoyed my cards!

Merry & Bright Pink

Hi everyone, Lisa here.  Can you believe it’s November already?  If you’re like me, you’re throwing your card making into high gear this month, to make sure your holiday cards are ready to pop in the mail by December.    Today I thought I’d stop by to share my latest Christmas card with you using a mix 5 of great stamps and 2 coordinating die sets from The Ton:

For this card I really wanted to make a card that combined traditional Christmas  colors (red and green) with non-traditional (pink).  I started out by stamping a beautiful berry branch stamp from  the Holiday Cones Outlines directly onto the front of a white card base.  I used 110 lb. Neenah Solar White cardstock because it is heavy enough to hold ink without it seeping through to the inside of the card.   I made sure to use The Ton’s Copic friendly Caviar Hybrid black ink to stamp the images on this card then colored them in with Copic Markers.

Nov 7 2017 blog copy.jpgsmall

Setting the base aside for a moment, I stamped and colored a couple more images onto some 80 lb Neenah Solar White cardstock using Caviar Hybrid ink and Copic markers.  The Christmas tree surrounded by presents is from The Ton’s Holiday Ballet Stamp set and coordinating dies.  The girl decorating the tree is from the City Girls Snow Day stamp set and coordinating dies.   The little stars on her skirt were added, using a small stamp from the Holiday Ballet stamp set.  I glued both of these finished pieces together then added some dimensional tape on the back (but only on the top half).

Nov 7 2017 blog3 copy.jpgsmall

I love this large, bold sentiment stamp from the Holiday Lyrics stamp set.  I stamped it off to the left side of the card front,  then clear embossed using The Ton’s Noir ink and Ranger Clear Embossing Powder to add some shine.  I stamped the Minor Stripes Cling Background stamp using The Ton’s Soft Orchid ink then cut a 1″ strip for the bottom of the card.  I adhered it using dimensional tape.

To finish up this card I just adhered the tree and girl and my favorite clear sequins from the Glass Slippers Couture Mix.  For a little extra sparkle I used a Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen on the tree ornaments and star.

Well that’s my card for today.  I hope you all are having a great time making those gorgeous holiday cards.  As long as you’re making them why don’t you try to win yourself a Christmas present to The Ton shop?  Does a $50 shopping spree sound like fun?    The Ton’s November’s Challenge theme just happens to be…….”Holiday”, woohoo!  You can enter as many times as you like!   Head on over to the Challenge Blog to find out more information on how to enter!

Shine on, my Bear!

Hello, everyone!

Today I’m going to show you another one Holiday card! I’ve combined different stamps set for it.

SAM_8271

To make the background, I’ve used Star Treils Stamps Set and Scenes: Fireplace. The stars were stamped with Arctic Sky Dye and Miami Cool Dye and then blended using water-soluble inks. The next step was performing wooden floor. I’ve inflicted some Found Topaz Dye on the required area of stamp Scenes: Fireplace and just stamped it.

SAM_8290

I’ve continued with making Christmas tree used Christmas Tree Stamps Set with Coordinating Dies. Firstly I’ve stamped branches using Found Topaz Dye. Secondly Christmas decorations were stamped with Red Sangria HybridLemon Drop Dye and Miami Cool Dye and covered with mask. Then I’ve stamped next layers with the same stamp set using Deep Emerald Dye and Bright Fern Dye.

Bear with his clothes from Honey Bears Stamps Set was painted with watercolor marker and cutted with suitable coordinating dies.

SAM_8297

Flags were taken from Fireplace Holiday Accessories Stamps Set, painted with watercolor markers and cutted with suitable coordinating dies. Then I’ve arranged all the parts, added the sign from Star Treils Stamps and decorated it with Blue Ice Couture Mix.

Hope You enjoyed my Bear! Thank you for your attention.
