Roses cards

Hello, everyone! It’s Anna here with roses cards today.

The first card is the 45th Birthday card.

SONY DSC

I started by stamping flowers from Rose Patch on a white cardstock. Pink roses were stamped with Rose Quartz, Soft Garnet and Lipstick Red. Yellow flowers were stamped with Vanilla Frosted, Lemon Drop and Amber Citrine. For stamping leaves, I used Bright Fern, Deep Emerald and Everglade Moss. All images were cut out with Rose Patch Coordinating Die.

Then I made purple frames. I ink blended Orchid Crush on a piece of white cardstock and cut out them using Double Pierced Square Coverplate Die. For the background, I ink blended Orchid Crush (as well) on a card panel I cut out with Double Pierced Square Coverplate Die (as well)).

Next, I stamped “45” from Fill It In Classic Numbers in Soft Garnet and “happy birthday” from Mega Confetti Numbers inNoir.
I adhered all images on my card and embellished it with a few sequins from Pink Diamond Couture Mix.

The second card I created using Large Floral Rose stamps.

At first, I stamped two roses with Soft Orchid, Grand Fuchsia and Plum Wine. The leaves were stamped with Soft Garden, Deep Emerald and Everglade Moss. I cut out them all using Large Florals: Rose Coordinating Die.

For the frame, I stamped Diagonal Stripes Cling Background on a piece of white cardstock, heat embossed it in Glitter Gold and cut out using Double Pierced Rectangle A2 Coverplate Die. I adhered frame, leaves and flowers on the card and added a few leaves I created using a piece of white cardstock, Bright Fern Dye and Leafy Bits Coverplate Die.

Morning Glory Hugs

Hi all. Vera here today, bringing you more floral inspiration on behalf of The Ton.

For my card today, I am playing with the gorgeous Morning Glory Cheer.

IMG3067.2
I stamped the Morning Glory flowers in Soft Amethyst, Iris Blooms & Violet Fringe. Then the leaves in Soft Garden & Bright Fern. Once all teh stamping done, I die cut the pieces using the matching Morning Glory Cheer dies. Gotta love how quick the stamping & diecutting done since everything get done together instead of one by one.

Next, I stamped the flowers from Floral Bits 2 with Soft Orchid & Orchid Crush ink pad and the leaves with Bright Emerald & Hot Tourmaline. Die-cut the flowers and the leaves using Floral Bits 2 coordinating dies.

I trimmed a card panel slightly skinnier than the card base width. Next I adhere a strip of Glossy Fine Black adhesive paper. Then arranged all the flower & leaves pieces on the card panel.

IMG3067.1
I felt the flowers still need a little something, something, so I decided to add a bit of color to the center of the flowers. Next, I die-cut the word hugs from the coming soon Many Sentiments dies three times to layer. I added a shade of blue to the word hugs. Stamp the word sending & add some mixed size dew drops.

IMG3067.3

Then to finish, I simply adhere the panel to the card base. I am quite happy with the way this card turned out. I hope you enjoy today’s card as much as I have fun making it.

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. Hope you all stay safe, be kind to each other & have a blessed day!

Best Wishes Card

Hello! Olga with you today. I made card using beautiful leaves stamps sets and a lot of green.

I toned the cardstock with Deep Emerald, Everglade Moss, Basil Mojito Dyes. Then I applied Leafy Bits Coverplate Die to it.

 I stamped Bountiful Leaves with Everglade Moss, Deep Emerald and Soft Garden Dyes. Then I applied Bountiful Leaves Coordinating Die to it. I put all leaves on the base of my card and added watercolor splash.

I stamped the title with Easy Expressions and Noir Dye.  I used hot embossing with golden powder for layer of the sentiment. Then I cut it with Easy Expressions Coordinating Die.

I decorated my card with Dew Drops and Glossy Accents.

Have a nice day!

 

 

2020 SPRING | SUMMER COFFEE LOVERS BLOG HOP

Hi everyone!!! It’s TaeEun here today with a very special post. We are so excited to join the super fun 2020 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!!  The Ton is a proud sponsor on this blog hop this year again.  You can link up your newly created coffee, tea, and/or cocoa projects for a chance to win lots of prizes, including $20 gift code to The Ton shop (stamps/dies/ink/gilding)!

CLBH blog banner

This hop runs from Friday, May. 22. to Friday, May. 29. Winners will be announced on Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog . See all the details HERE.

I made a coffee themed ( it could be a cup of hot cocoa, if you want 🙂 ) shaker card using our Tea Party coordinating die set and some of our new items from May Release : Rose Patch stamp and die set and Oval Nested die.

CLBH 2 WM

I started off by cutting the front oval piece. I cut it using the cup die from the Tea Party coordinating die and an Oval Nested die. I cut it from some gold glitter paper and white cardstock and adhered them together to make the panel sturdier. I adhered a piece of clear acetate on the back of the panel and set it aside.

CLBH 1 WM

Next I prepared the background panel. I watercolored the panel in ombre brown. I wanted that the brown reminds you of coffee or cocoa, so I made the background upwards from the middle of the cup very bright. After the background panel was dry I drew a few lines using a gold gel pen.

I mounted the background flat on a creme cardbase and made the shaker part by adding the front piece using foam tape. I used Hot Cocoa Couture Mix as the shaker elements.

CLBH 4 WM

To embellish the card front I arranged a small rose bouquet using Rose Patch, Bountiful Leaves and Floral Bits stamp set and coordinating dies. The orange flowers were stamped in  Amber CitrineCoraline HybridCoral Cavern and the leaves in  Soft GardenBright FernDeep Emerald.

The sentiment is from Easy Expressions. I gold heat embossed the handwritten part and stamped the rest in Noir. I cut it using the coordinating die and added it to the card.

I finished off the card with three Medallion Gold sequins.

CLBH 3 WM

I hope you enjoyed my card today. Don’t forget to hop over to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog with a cup of coffee, tea or cocoa ready in your hand, as there are so many other participants playing along on this hop.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Hugs,

TaeEun

so very happy for you

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here sharing a couple of floral cards which are mainly watercolored. I happened to use the same sentiment for both of my cards, so I took the title of my post from it 🙂 .

Without further ado let’s get on today’s cards!

In the first card I paired the morning glories from Morning Glory Cheer stamp set with the Morning Glory Border background.

TT0520 1 1 WM

I started off by making the background panel. I white heat embossed the Morning Glory Border background and colored it using Color Burst powders in blue, purple and green. I cut the panel using a Rectangle A2 Nested Die and set it aside.

TT0520 1 4 WM

The Morning Glory Cheer was stamped in the Amethyst collection, the Blues Collection and the Crystal Garden Collection. I cut them using the coordinating die.

Tt0520 1 2 WM

I then assembled the card together. The background panel was foam mounted on a navy cardbase. I added a piece of vellum rectangle, one side of which was torn, to the background to tone it down. The morning glory cluster was arranged on the vellum. The sentiment is from Easy Expressions set. I gold heat embossed the handwritten part and stamped the rest in Noir. I. cut it using the coordinating die.  I added the sentiment using some foam tape and scattered some Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins to finish off the card.

TT0520 1 3 WM

For the second card I used the outline leaves from Bountiful Leaves set.

TT0520 2 1 WM

I white heat embossed the leaves and cut them using the coordinating die. I arranged the leaves on a piece of A2 sized scrap paper to get an idea where I should add colors in the background. I watercolored a watercolor paper panel in blue and green and let it dry.

TT0520 2 4 WM

I then adhered the die cut leaves on the background panel and watercolored them also in blue and green. I added lots of white splatters on the panel. After the panel was dry I cut the panel using a Rectangle A2 Nested Die  and foam mounted it on a white cardbase.

TT0520 2 2 WM

I used the same sentiment that I used for the first card. I added a tiny bouquet of yellow flowers with the sentiment strip to the card. The little flowers are made using the Floral Bits stamp and die set. To finish off the card I added some Lemon Chiffon and Glass Slippers sequins.

TT0520 2 3 wM

That’s it from me today! Hope you enjoyed looking my cards!

Stay well, lovelies!

Hugs,

TaeEun

 

Sending Big Hugs – Morning Glory Cheer

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

I’m sending hugs with a bright, cheerful card today!! These Grouped Layering Stamp Sets make stamping lots of images so quick and easy and I just can’t get enough of them!!

I began by stamping the images in the Morning Glory Cheer Stamp Set with Cali Blue, Azurite and Violet Fringe Inks, then cut them out with the Coordinating Dies. (I added some yellow to the centers of my morning glories with Copic markers.) The Bountiful Leaves were stamped with the Crystal Garden Collection and cut with the Coordinating Dies. I also stamped Floral Bits with the Ruby Collection and cut those out with their Coordinating Dies.

For the background, I white heat embossed the Modern Plaid Background Stamp onto Bristol smooth cardstock and ink blended Lemon Drop Ink onto it. I die-cut the panel with one of the Rectangle A2 Nested Dies and adhered it to a white top-folding note card. I also added a white frame cut using the Rectangle A2 Frames Slim Borders Coverplate Die.

I arranged all of the die-cuts and adhered them to the left-hand side of the card, trimming off the excess. I stamped the sentiments in Easy Expressions with Azurite and Red Sangria Inks, cut them out with their Coordinating Dies and added one with foam tape.

A few sequins from the Pink Bokeh and Blue Ice Couture Mixes finish off the card!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!!

You’re, like, really amazing

Hello, everyone!

It’s Anna here with you today and I’m sharing a floral card I made using Grouped Layering stamps. That’s really fab system to make many elements quick and easy.

SONY DSC

I started by stamping images from Floral Bits 2 with Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Beach Blondie, Amber Citrine, Aspen Cocoa (yellow flowers), Soft Orchid, Orchid Crush, Pink Derby(pink flowers). The leaves were stamped in Crystal Pewter and Everglade Moss. I cut out all of them with Floral Bits 2 Die.

For the background, I ink blended Caribbean Turquoise on A2 sized white cardstock. Then I made another panel using Geo Mountain Coverplate C and foam mounted it on the background. I adhered flowers and leaves onto my card.

SONY DSC

Next, I made sentiment. I stamped “Hello” from OMG Sentiments on a stripe of vellum and heat embossed it in white. For the second part of the sentiment, I ink blended Caribbean Turquoise on a stripe of white card stock and stamped “you’re, like…” on it in Noir.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hi all. Welcome to a new week. Vera here to start your week with some inspiration from The Ton.

I am pretty excited that with the recent release, The Ton now offering quite a few basic shape dies, like circle, square and rectangle dies. With my cards today, I want to show a couple different way of using these basic dies.

For my cards, I am using the Double Pierced rectangle A2 Coverplate die.

IMG3056.3
Once I die cut the rectangles, I cut them in half. Put aside one of the half set. Working on the first half set, I colored each layer with Copic. I could die cut them from various color cardstock as well, but I like using white cardstock and then colored them.

Then on the card base, I arrange the layer flip flop of each other. Like the top layer with the open side (since I cut them in half) facing to the right, the second layer open side facing to the left and so on.

IMG3056.2

Next, I stamped and die cut the Outlined Leaves set. Put aside and from a piece of watercolor cardstock die cut a bunch of leaves using Leafy Bits Coverplate dies. Watercolor the pieces and let dry. Next, I simply arranged and adhere the leaves to the card. Finished by die cutting the thanks sentiment from the coming soon Many Sentiments dies. Due to manufacture delay, we were going to release this set in May, but had to postpone and I already had this card done by the time we found out. Trust me, this sentiment dies set is worth the wait.

Next, I made another card using the other half the rectangles and this time I just adhere them the way they come.

IMG3056.1
Then I stamped and die cut the leaves from Bountiful Leaves set. I love, how quickly these leaves come together! I stamped them using Caribbean Turquoise, Hot Tourmaline and Ocean Teal. Arrange the leaves on the card. Same thing, the sentiment from the coming soon Many Sentiment dies set.
IMG3056.4

Well, there you go. I hope these cards help you to think different way to use the basic shape dies. I am definitely excited to explore more option to get more out of these dies. That’s all for me for today. I wish you a happy Monday and that your weeks starts off wonderfully. Cheers….
