Mother’s Day Mums

Hello, friends!! I hope you had a great weekend!!

I have two Mother’s Day cards to share with you featuring lots of goodies from the latest release!!

For my first card, I gold heat embossed the images from the Jumbo Spider Mum stamp set, Baroque Frame and a sentiment from Gladiola Cheer onto bristol smooth cardstock. I colored the mum and leaves with Zig Clean Color Markers. Once dry, I die-cut the images with the Jumbo Spider Mum and Baroque Frame Coordinating Dies.

For the background, I chose a piece of cardstock that matched my mum and stamped the Many Mums Cling Background Stamp onto it with the new Dolled Up Ink. The frame and mum were popped up with foam tape. I fussy cut the sentiment and added it with another layer of foam adhesive.

For my second card, I decided to no-line color the Mum Close-Up Cling Background Stamp.

I stamped the Mum Close Up stamp onto white cardstock with Ballet Slippers Ink, then colored it with Copic markers. I die-cut the panel with the largest die in the Double Stitched Square Nested Dies. I die-cut the Square Frames Slim Borders Coverplate from some frosted silver cardstock and adhered the second largest one to my mum panel.

“Happy” was die-cut from frosted silver and black cardstock with a die from the Script Word Dies Bundle Set. “Mother’s Day”, from Add-On Fill It In Sentiments, was silver heat embossed onto a black cardstock strip and popped up with foam adhesive. A sprinkling of Glass Slippers Round Confetti add a little more shine.

That’s it!! Do you have your Mother’s Day cards finished yet? If not, I hope I have provided some inspiration for you today!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great week and I’ll see you soon!!


Mother’s Day cards

Hello, everyone! Anna here with a couple of Mother’s Day cards. The first card features Many Mums Cling Background stamp.

I stamped the image on the square piece of white cardstock that was cut out with Square Nested Dies and heat embossed it in white. I colored these beautiful flowers with Holbein watercolors. Next, I die cut a white card panel using Double Stitched Square Nested Dies and adhered panel with flowers on it.

For the sentiment, I ink blended Soft Amethyst and Iris Blooms on a piece of white cardstock and cut out “MOM” using Bold Alphas Upper Coverplate Dies. I wanted to add texture to the letters, and I used dry embossing with a die (SLIMLINE – Diagonal Stripes Coverplate Die) technique. “Happy Mother’s Day” from Happy Palm was gold heat embossed on a stripe of white cardstock. I embellished the card with Dew Drops.

I made my second card using new Jumbo Spider Mum stamps and dies, and Baroque Frame Oval stamp and die.

I started by heat embossing spider mum in Rose Gold. I then colored it with watercolors and die cut with matching die. To make the frame, I stamped Baroque Frame Oval on a kraft cardstock, heat embossed it in white and cut out with coordinating die.

The sentiment from Happy Palm (as well)) was stamped in Noir on a stripe of kraft cardstock. I adhered all images on a white cardstock card base and added a few sequins from Coral Necklace Couture Mix on it.

That’s all from me today. Have a great Friday!


Shades of Purple

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of purple cards featuring some of the new products from our Spring Release

The first card is featuring the Palm Layering stencil set and the Gingham Plaid Layering coverplate die set. The Palm Layering Stencil is a larger version of the Happy Palm image. They look both amazing in their four layers. One of my favorites from this release! 

I shared a card made using the Happy Palm stamp set on the Release Blog Hop. I used the same colors to stencil the Palm for today’s card.  For the pink part I used Ballet SlippersHollywood StarCosmopolitan pink and Pink Derby and the purple part was stenciled in Soft AmethystIris BloomsGrape Crush and Violet Fringe. I cut the image using the coordinating die and set it aside.

For a clean background first I dry embossed a white panel using the second layer of the Gingham Plaid Layering coverplate die set. I then cut the third payer from silver glitter paper. I adhered the dry embossed panel on a white cardbase and foam mounted the silver glitter panel. Next I added the Palm image on it. The sentiment was stamped using Easy Expressions: Thanks set. The scripty part was stamped in Grape Crush and the rest in Noir. To finish off I scattered some Glass Slippers sequins.

For the second card I no line colored the Gladiola Cheer stamp image. 

I stamped the image in Vanilla Frosted Cupcake and colored it using Karin brush markers. After the image was completely colored I added a bit of blue and yellow green around the flowers. Next I ink blended two diagonal corners of the panel in Grape Crush and splattered white opaque ink on the whole panel. 

I cut a rectangle frame using the Rectangle A2 Nested die set. I cut it two times from some heavyweight white cardstock, adhered them together and added it to the panel. To tuck the frame under the flower I cut the outline of the largest bloom with a Kraft knife. The sentiment is from Easy Expressions Birthday set. The scripty part was stamped in Azurite and Grape Crush and the rest in Noir. I added a few Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots and the card was done. 

Thank you so much for looking! Hope you liked my purple creations 🙂 !

Have a crafty day!


Bonny Blooms & Carnation

Hi all. Vera here to bring you fresh inspiration to start your week. I always enjoy making cads with flower image and of course as usual The Ton new release has plenty of gorgeous sets to play with. For today, I have a couple cards to share. First up, I am showcasing the pretty Bonny Blooms set.

What a gorgeous set, right? I simply stamped the flower and color the image with Copic. Trim the panel a bit and adhere to the card base.

For the sentiment, I used one of the sentiment from Easy Expression and finish by adding some enamel dots.

With fabulous release, I definitely can’t just post 1 card, right? For my second card, I combine Gingham Plaid Layering Dies with Grouped Fresh Carnations.

I started by die cutting all 3 layer of the plaid then did some ink blending on all of them. Of course, as usual, I go for the soft color combination. Adhere all the layers and add to the card base. Nest, stamp, heat embossed, color & die cut the flower from Grouped Fresh Carnations. Adhere to card with foam adhesive. Finish by adding sentiment from Easy Expression and some enamel dots.

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. Hope you enjoy today’s projects and hope it inspire you to create as well. Cheers!

Spring 2021 Release

Hello and welcome back, everyone! Today, we’re debuting our new Spring Release for this year. We have a plethora of new products today: 14 stamps with coordinating dies, 1 pop up die collection with, coverplate dies, inks and stencils! This is going to be a lengthy post but I promise you, there’s a lot of eye candy! Grab a cup of your favorite caffeinated beverage and let’s begin! 99% of our debut products today are ready to ship immediately. There are only three products that have a delayed shipping notice. See below for more details.

We also have bundles galore today! We have ink bundles (stamp pads, mini inks and reinkers) and a bundle for all the new stamps/dies/stencils (with $165 savings!).

Next week we’ll have a four day Instagram Hop to celebrate our new release. Join us from Tuesday to Friday next week. We’ll have some amazing guest designers and our team showcasing our new products!

New Inks!

Shiny new ink pads!!

Let’s start with the introduction of our inks! We have not released any new inks colors in five years so it was time… We have 19 new colors!

  • 5 super light hues: Whisper Pink, Soft Cream, Moonlight, Soft Ash and Light Oat
  • 7 new green hues: Evergreen, Matcha, Honey Dew, Meadow, Spring Salad, Raw Sea Glass and Vineyard
  • 2 blue/cool hues: Stormy Sea, Periwinkle
  • 5 pink/red hues: Bubblegum, Dolled Up, Cherry, Deep Peony and Wine

All 19 are available in regular sized ink pads and reinkers are available individually and as a bundle.

We also have 4 new mini ink bundles featuring 16 out of the 19 new hues. We have all 4 mini collections available in a bundle as well.

I have also bundled three regular sized pads into one layering collection: Rose Collection. This collection features our Whisper Pink, Bubblegum and Cherry regular sized ink pads.

These three inks layer beautifully! This might be my new favorite ink layering combo! (Photo on the right was created using our new Grouped Fresh Daisies – more details on this new set below!) Photo on the left was stamped with our Peony Memories stamp set.

One of the things I am very excited about regarding this ink release is our 7 new green hues. If you’re a fan of The Ton, you know about my love for designing florals. With the introduction of our patent pending grouped layering stamps more than a year ago, we have helped rekindle a passion for layered stamping due to the effortless ease of the layering process made possible by our patent pending strategic marker designs. So I needed more inks in our collection to stamp all of our lovely florals and foliage designs! With the introduction of seven new colors, you can use these as light, mid-tone or even dark tones depending on the combo you choose. The possibilities are endless with so many different shades to choose from.

Stamped using our Couture Color Inks and Bountiful Leaves

We can now achieve more nuanced shading in our projects with these additional green shades.

New Products: Happy Palm Stamp Set and Palm Layering Stencils – more details about these products are below!

Our 19 new hues are meant to complement our current layering inks. For example, our new super light colors can take the place of your first layer hues. What you used to use as first layer colors (think rose quartz, vanilla frosted cupcake, ballet slippers, crystal pewter) can now be used as mid-tone layers!

Layering Formula: Soft Cream + Vanilla Frosted Cupcake + Beach Blondie

Now I am able to take our layered stamping to another level with these light inks. We can take it down a notch on the brightness scale by going down a shade in our layering formula. Instead of using our usual Citrine Collection layering inks (this is what I usually use for yellow layering inks), I can now use the above formula for a softer result.

Layering Formula: Moonlight, Soft Ash, Crystal Pewter

Our new Wine dye ink is now our darkest red ink in our collection!!

Let’s begin with our new Pop-Up Poppy dies! This is the only product that will have delayed shipping!

  • International Orders (outside of U.S.): Orders with this preordered item will ship together when order is ready. We will not ship packages separately for international orders. WE WILL HOLD ALL INTERNATIONAL ORDERS UNTIL WE HAVE ALL ITEMS READY TO SHIP if on the same order. 
  • Domestic Orders (within U.S.): We will ship your order immediately.  WE WILL SHIP THIS DIE/Stencil SEPARATELY WHEN IT BECOMES AVAILABLE. WE WILL SHIP THE REST OF YOUR ORDER IMMEDIATELY.
Pop-Up Poppy Dies + Coordinating Stencil Available Separately

This 8 piece die collection lets you create a fun pop up inside your card. You can use the coordinating stencil to help add interest and detail to your poppy die cuts.

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

Let’s introduce our new Gingham Plaid Layering Coverplate Dies!

I am so in love with our new coverplate layering dies! What’s amazing about this die collection is that you can mix and match the layers you want to use. Use all three or use just 1 of the coverplates. Each layer has detailed stitching within the panel and along the border. You get three coverplate dies that you can use individually or together. You also get to be creative about your color combinations, too! This is a fun set to play with.

Keep scrolling to check out how our design team members have used this fun die!

Let’s move onto our new stamps! We have 14 new stamps with coordinating dies for today.

I used these florals as a backdrop in my Dove Friends card above.

I released the digital version of this seed envelope design a couple of months ago during our gardening themed flash release. I decided to release the physical die because it’s just a neat little envelope die. You don’t need to swap seeds to need this die. You can definitely use this envelope for other crafty projects!

Whew!! We are finished for today!! What did you think?? Did you have a favorite? Let us know your top three in the comments.

Then head over to our team members’ blogs and leave them some a little bit of love!

Hello Beautiful – Layered Roses

Hello, crafty friends and happy Wednesday!! I hope your week is going well!! I have a card to share with you today that has lots of layers!!

I began by die-cutting all of the layers of roses and leaves from bristol smooth cardstock using the Radiant Roses Layered Dies. To add color to them, I sprinkled Color Burst Powders onto my glass mat and diluted them with water, then drug the die-cuts through the color. To vary the color, I simply diluted the powder more. After all of the die-cuts were colored, I set them aside to dry.

For the background, I sprinkled the Color Burst powders onto a panel of bristol smooth cardstock and sprayed it with water, then set it aside to dry. I die-cut the top layer of the Diamond Plaid Layering Coverplate Die Set from white cardstock and adhered it over the background panel. The roses and leaves were arranged and adhered as shown.

For the sentiment, I stamped the Ribbon Affirmations Stamp Set onto white cardstock with Caribbean Turquoise and Hot Tourmaline Inks, then cut them out with the Coordinating Dies. “Hello” is also from the Ribbon Affirmations set. It was stamped with Hot Tourmaline Ink and trimmed into a rectangle. I adhered the sentiment over the roses and background and called it done!!

I really love how this turned out and hope you do too!! All of these layers make me so happy!!

Enjoy the rest of your week and have a happy Easter!!


Watercolor Wild Blooms and Poppies

Hello, everyone and happy Monday! Anna here today with a floral watercolor card.

To start, I stamped images from Poppy Smiles and Wild Blooms on a piece of white cardstock and heat embossed them in white. I colored beautiful flowers with Holbein watercolors. After all images were dry, I cut out them with Poppy Smiles Coordinating Die and Wild Blooms Coordinating Dies.

Next, I created a white cardstock panel using SLIMLINE – Quilted Coverplate Die and SLIMLINE – Pierced Nested Dies and adhered it on the kraft cardstock card base.

The floral cluster was added on the card with foam mounting dots. To make the sentiment, I stamped “Happy” from Ribbons General in Cali Blue and Everglade Moss and cut out with matching die. “Birthday” was stamped on the stripe of dark green cardstock (the stripe of white cardstock was colored in Everglade Moss as well) and heat embossed in white.

That’s all from me today! Thank you for stopping by!

Anna 😉

Extra Sparkly Pink Card

Hello! Olga with you today and I will show you something pink and sparkly. I don’t really like pink, but sometimes it is impressive.

So, my card with pink flowers is here.

At first, I stamped Grouped Fresh Peonies using Ruby Collection and Crystal Garden Collection. I cut it with Coordinating Die.

I stamped Rose of Sharon with Caviar Hybrid and colored it using markers. I applied Coordinating Die to it.

I made the background. I used Toned Squares and Ruby Collection

I toned this cardstock sheet with Soft Garnet Dye and applied Double Stitched Ractangle A2 Nested Dies to it. I applied to next cardstock sheet Double Stitched Oval Nested Dies.

I placed all details of my card on base and added the title from Rose of Sharon

I decorated it with Perfect Pearls splashes and dots.

Have a nice Friday!

Hello – Coming Up Dahlias

Hello, sweet friends and happy Wednesday!! I hope your week is going well!! I am LOVING the warmer temperatures in the Midwest and with warmer weather comes FLOWERS!!! I just want to pull out ALL of my flower stamps!! For my card today, I pulled out a stamp from one of my favorite collections…the Coming Up Series!!

I began by heat embossing the beautiful dahlias in the Coming Up Dahlias Stamp Set onto bristol smooth cardstock with rose gold embossing powder. I watercolored the panel with Karin Brushpro Markers.

I die-cut the Rectangle A2 Frames Slim Borders Coverplate and Many Sentiments from metallic rose cardstock. I also die-cut “hello” three more times from white cardstock, then stacked and adhered them together with the rose die-cut on top.

I adhered the frame and layered sentiment as shown. I added a sprinkling of sequins from the Hot Cocoa and Summer Soiree Couture Mixes for a little sparkle and shine!!

Well, that’s it for me today!! I hope I’ve inspired you to break out some of your floral stamp sets!!

Have a great day!!


Poppy Smiles

Hello, crafty friends! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a floral card which is featuring the Poppy Smiles stamp set.

I did simple and light watercoloring on the gold heat embossed floral image and matched it with a dark background.

To begin I gold heat embossed the Poppy Smiles two times on some watercolor paper. I watercolored the flowers in pink and the leaves in purple very lightly. I then colored the background around the image in Payne’s gray and cut them using the coordinating die.  

To create the dark background I watercolored a watercolor paper panel in Payne’s gray and Phthalo blue and splattered gold watercolor on it. After the panel was dry I cut it using the Quilted A2 die and adhered it flat on a white cardbase. 

The die cut flowers were then added to the card using foam tape as shown in the picture. The sentiment is from Easy Expressions Birthday stamp set. I gold heat embossed the scripty part of the sentiment and stamped the rest in Noir. To add more golden accent I scattered Medallion Gold sequins. 

That’s it from me for today! I love how this card turned out. I hope you like it too 🙂 ! 

Thank you so much for stopping by! 

Have a crafty week!
