Bubble Alphas Valentine Card

Happy Monday, friends!! I hope you had a great weekend!!

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and I have a card to share with you today that is perfect for the occasion!!

I began by stamping the Balloon Alphas and Smooched stamp sets onto white cardstock with Red Sangria and Valentine Red inks, then cut them out with the Coordinating Dies. I also white heat embossed “Happy Valentine’s Day” from the XOXO Mini stamp set onto red cardstock and fussy cut it out.

For the background, I die-cut the A2 Quilted Coverplate Die from white cardstock and layered it over a panel of red cardstock. The Rectangle A2 Frames Slim Border Coverplate Die was cut from the same red cardstock and the second largest frame was layered over the die-cut background.

The lip die-cuts were adhered flat to the card panel, while the Balloon Alpha die-cuts and fussy cut sentiment were adhered with foam adhesive. I drew lines with a black marker from each die-cut for the balloon ribbons.

That’s it!! This card came together really quickly and would be great for any guy or gal!!

Thanks for stopping by today!! Have a great week!!

6th Anniversary Release

Hello and welcome back, everyone! Today we are celebrating our 6th Anniversary! How exciting is that? I can’t believe that this amount of time has flown by… Time flies by too quickly when you’re having fun! And we are having fun over here at The Ton!

For our 6th Anniversary Release, we have 7 new stamps with coordinating dies and 4 new super fun standalone dies. All new items are available to ship immediately! We also have a one-click easy to purchase bundle with some savings here.

I’m going to introduce all of the new products which will be followed by a gallery of beautiful inspiration by our talented team members. Then we will continue our Anniversary festivities next week with some Instagram Hops from Monday to Thursday with our special guests! Make sure you’re following us on all of our social media platforms to stay tuned. We’re also doing a giveaway today so be sure to scroll all the way down for more details.

Let’s begin!

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

First up is our Balloon Alphas Stamp and Die.

Balloon Alphas, 9x12in Photopolymer Set

This is the newest addition to our layered alphas stamp collection! This design is a two step layering stamp set.

Stamp the more solid base first. Follow it up with the second detailed stamp. Then use the coordinating die (available separately) to cut out all letters at once. I did separate the least used letters so you can stamp these in groups separately.

Wild Blooms, 4x6in Photopolymer Stamp (coordinating die available separately)

Next up is our Wild Blooms Stamp Set!

This is a beautiful floral stamp set that features three floral blooms and 5 foliage images that are amazing to color with your medium of choice. Coordinating dies are available separately.

Ribbons General, 6×8 Photopolymer Set (coordinating die available separately)

Next up is our patent pending grouped layering Ribbons General stamp set!

This 6×8 stamp set features two large sentiment block stamps that you layer over each other for a 3d ribbon sentiment effect!

After you stamp the two layers, you will be left with 6 complete sentiments. Use the coordinating die (available separately) to die cut all 6 sentiments in one shot.

The coordinating die cuts out all of the sentiments in one pass!
Ribbons Affirmations, 6×8 Photopolymer Set (coordinating die available separately)

I also designed an Affirmations version of our Ribbons sentiment because the design was just too pretty to limit it to one set! Coordinating die available separately.

A rainbow of sentiments!
Ditsy Bits, 4x6in Photopolymer Stamp set (coordinating die available separately)

Next up is our Ditsy Bits stamp set. This is also a patent pending grouped layering stamp set. The best thing about our Bits collection is that the stamps are smaller and easier to handle which makes mass producing easier and faster.

Easy to stamp and cut!

Our Ditsy Bits have more of a stylistic design to them which are fun to add to floral clusters for your cards or other papercrafts. Coordinating die available separately.

Fancy Foliage, 6x6in Photopolymer Stamp set (coordinating die available separately)

You can never have enough foliage pieces which is why I designed our new Fancy Foliage.

What is wonderful about this set is that you can stamp the two step layered images for a more detailed layered effect or you can stamp and color the coordinating outline stamp. There are many possibilities with this Fancy Foliage set! Coordinating die available separately.

Eucalyptus, 6x6in Photopolymer Stamp set (coordinating die available separately)

I’ve always wanted to design a layered eucalyptus set so this design was absolutely perfect! Why? Because I incorporated our patent pending grouped layering system within the design and there is also that added outline coordinating stamp for all of you colorists out there! Coordinating die available separately.

Radiant Roses Layering Dies

Our newest addition to our standalone die collection is our Radiant Roses Dies!

Each die cuts out a layer all at once saving you from taping down each individual die. Layer all the pieces together for a beautiful die cut bouquet of Radiant Roses!

Round Foliage Window Layering Dies

Next up is our Round Foliage Window Layering Dies. Both foliage dies can be layered over each other for a more fuller effect.

You also have a border frame die that you can layer over the foliage layers to give your project a more finished look. The single round die can be used to create a die cut to back up your layered die cuts.

Quilted A2 Coverplate Die

Next up is our adorable Quilted A2 Coverplate Die. There are stitching details where you have the quilted impressions and also tiny heart details!

Quilted Slimline Coverplate Die

I created a similar quilted design for slimline cards. This version has small diamond details so that you can use this coverplate die cut horizontally and vertically.

Sunflowers in pink

Hello, everyone! Anna here with a floral card I made using Grouped Fresh Sunflowers stamps and matching die.

I started off by stamping flowers with Rose Quartz, Hollywood Star, Cosmopolitan Pink and Beach Blondie, Soft Garden. For the leaves, I used Bright Fern, Deep Emerald and Everglade Moss. All images were cut out with Grouped Fresh Sunflowers Coordinating Die.

I then stamped the Cascade Bits in Vanilla Frosted, Beach Blondie, Bright Fern (yellow) and Peach Blossom, Coralline and Soft Garden (orange). After stamping I die cut them all using the Cascade Bits Coordinating Die.

For the background, I stamped Holiday Confetti in Beach Blondie. I made the sentiment by stamping “just saying hello” from Grouped Fresh Sunflowers on a stripe of grey cardstock and heat embossed it in white.

Hope you like my card. Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Have a nice day!

Hello, everyone! It’s Anna here with first card this year) I made a floral card using Grouped Fresh Peonies stamps and coordinating die.

I stamped beautiful flowers with Soft Orchid, Grand Fuchsia, Plum Wine and Bright Fern, Everglade Moss (foliage). Then I stamped Cascade Bits in Peach Blossom, Coralline and Soft Garden and cut with matching die. Also, I used leaves from Grouped Autumn Foliage that were stamped with Soft Garden, Bright Fern and Deep Emerald.

For the background, I cut out a slimline panel with SLIMLINE – Simple Nested Dies and ink blended Cali Blue and Soft Amethyst on it. Next, I cut a white cardstock panel using SLIMLINE – Diagonal Stripes Coverplate Die.

To make a sentiment, I stamped “Happy Birthday” from Grouped Fresh Peonies as well, heat embossed in Rose Gold and cut it with shadow background die from Many Sentiments Coverplate Dies. I added some Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots to the card to finish it up.

Happy 2021

Hello, crafty friends!! I hope the new year is off to a great start for you!! We woke up New Year’s Day with ice on the ground and no power…ugh. It finally came back on around noon. Although it didn’t start out great, I still have high hopes that it will be better than 2020…ha!

I have a festive, slimline “happy 2021” card to share with you today!!

I began by die-cutting the background panel from black cardstock using the Slimline Star Coverplate Die. I embossed the top and bottom of the panel with a stamp from the Confetti Borders set and gold glitter embossing powder, then backed the panel with gold glitter paper.

For the sentiment, I gold heat embossed “happy” from the Poinsettia Wishes Stamp Set onto black cardstock and cut it out with the Many Sentiments (Holiday) Coverplate Dies. I also cut four more die-cuts from black cardstock and stacked them together for dimension. “2021” was die-cut from gold glitter paper once and black cardstock four times using the Tall & Skinny Numbers Coverplate Dies. After stacking and adhering them together, the numbers and “happy” die-cuts were adhered as shown.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!! Wishing you all the best in 2021!!!


Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, crafty friends!!! Hope you’re having a great day! It’s TaeEun here with a bright and cheerful New Year’s card! I made a rainbow floral wreath using the Cascade Bits grouped layering stamp set. 

Let’s start off the new year with a bright vibe 🙂 !

I started by stamping the Cascade Bits images in rainbow colors. The ink colors I used are listed below.

After stamping I die cut them all using the coordinating die and set them aside. 

For a simple background I cut a light gray cardstock using the A2 Grid coverplate die, layered it with one more die cut piece and adhered it on a white cardbase.

I then arranged the rainbow wreath on the card as shown in the picture. Along with the die cut florals I also used a few branches which were die cut from some white cardstock using the Leafy Bits coverplate die

The sentiment was cut using Many Sentiments Holiday die set. I layered three white die cut sentiments and added black shadow layers to them. To finish off the card I scattered a few Glass Slippers sequins

Thank you so much for looking! Hope you like my rainbow New Year’s card! It was fun to make ❤ !

Wishing you all a happy and healthy year ahead!


Lily Trio

Hi all. Vera here today. I have a couple cards to share today. Well, originally I was going to only make 1 card but as sometime happen, my plan didn’t quite work out and I had to make adjustment.

Let’s get on with the card, shall we?

For this card, I used Lily Trio Layering Coverplate dies. I used white cardstock for all 4 layers of the dies. Then, I colored the bottom layer with Caribbean Turquoise, second layer with Ocean Teal and the third layer with Basil Mojito. Now, this next step is when my plan for 1 card turn into 2 cards.

See, I was coloring the very top layer with Ocean Teal again and trying to make it darker by layering the color deeper. Anyway, when I layered with the other 3 layers, it just didn’t look pretty. So, I put this aside for now and die cut the very top layer one more time from white cardstock and adhere all the layers and adhere them to the card base. To finish, I stamped sentiment from Regal Rose set and add some enamel drops.

Next, I went back to the colored top layer that I put aside and use it to make the second card. It turned out to be a simple card that really doesn’t need much else.

Same thing like the first card. I used another sentiment from Regal Rose set and add some enamel drops. I am actually pretty happy that I ended up with 2 cards. I always have a hard time being wasteful, so whenever I can save a mistake, I do so and try to use it for another card.

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. And, I would like to use this chance to wishing you all a very Happy New Year. May 2021 brings you good health, prosperity and many happy little moments that enrich your life. Thank you for all your support for The Ton. We appreciate you. Be safe and let’s welcome the new year with hope & love. Cheers….
