For the background, I die-cut the Convention Coverplate Die from white cardstock and layered it over a panel of light blue cardstock. The stenciled florals were layered together and adhered with liquid glue. The sentiment, from the Coming Up Peruvian Lilies stamp set, was white heat embossed onto black cardstock, cut out with the Coordinating Die, then adhered with foam tape.
I added some dots to the centers of the flowers with a white gel pen and adhered a few Dark Purple Opaque Gems to finish it off.
That’ll do it for me today!! Have a wonderful week!!
Hello and welcome back, everyone! Today, we’re celebrating our 8th Anniversary! The Ton has evolved over the last eight years. We started out with stamps back then. But now we have a robust collection of stamps, stencils dies, gilding and inks! We’ve also completed our first full year of shows last year. It was so great to meet our customers in person and to also meet new customers who discovered our products at the shows for the first time. I also got the chance to meet some our DT members (Brenda and Lisa) in person. It was like meeting long lost family!
I’m truly grateful for this community and I hope to continue to design for you guys for many more to come! Let’s introduce our Anniversary Release!
Next up is our Lily Bloom Stencil set. This set is made up of four layering stencils measuring at 4.2 x 4.5 inches each.
Stencil 1: The top portion can be blended with light pink (first layer of the petal). Lower portion of the stencil can be blended with light green (first layer of stem/foliage).
Stencil 2: The top portion can be blended with mid topne pink (second layer of the petal). Lower portion of the stencil can be blended with dark green (second layer of stem/foliage).
Stencil 3: Can be blended with darker pink (third layer of petals)
Stencil 4: Can be blended with darkest pink or purple (adds accents to petals).
There is also another element on the lower right corner of this stencil, the stamens. You have to shift the stencil to center this onto the lily center. You can use black or dark brown for this element.
This stencil set coordinates with our previously released Lily Bloom stamp and die set. The die coordinates with both stencil and stamp products.
This is a smaller 2.9 x 3.2 inch layering stencil set that is very versatile. It can be used for A2 sized cards or smaller projects. It can also be used on larger and longer sized slimline cards because of the sprig-like design of the florals.
This set has three stencils. The first stencil can be blended with light pink (first petal layer). The second stencil can be blended with a mid tone or dark pink (second and final petal layer). The third stencil has two elements. You can use black ink and blend into the two circled etched ares and then blend green for the rest of the stencil.

Next up is our Sunkissed Dahlias Stencils and coordinating die. This is a 6×6 inch layering set that produces a large bloom that becomes a beautiful centerpiece on your card.
Next up is our Dahlia Leaves stencil! This is one stencil with two layers on it. Layering for this stencil is a two step process that makes it effortless to mass produce these leaves. The coordinating die is one single die that cuts out all 4 leaves in one pass through your die cutting machine. You’re going to need these leaves for the next two sets!
Instructions: Ensure that your stencil is upright. Align the upper left corner of the stencil with the upper left corner of your cardstock. Blend the top portion of the stencil with light green ink. Next, take the stencil and rotate it 180º and align the upper left corner of the stencil to the cardstock once again. This time, blend the top portion of the stencil with dark green ink.
This is a very straightforward layering set. All you need are three shades of a one color and blend them (from light to dark) onto Stencils 1 through 3.
This set does coordinate with our Close Up Dahlia 2 (6x6in) stamp set.
Created by Brenda with our Sunkisssed Dahlias stencils, Posy Bouquet Stencils, Slimline Border dies and Coming Up Peruvian Lilies (Sentiment)
Next up is our Darling Dahlias stencils and die. This set is a bit more abstract in style than our Sunkissed Dahlias but just as beautiful and large! For this set as well, all you need are three shades of a one color and blend them (from light to dark) onto Stencils 1 through 3.
Since this is a larger 6×6 inch design, you can slice the stenciled image in half to create two mini slimline cards. Just choose a fun background and adhere your sliced die cuts to create a quick pair of cards.
Stencil 1: First layer petal (lightest shade of pink)
Stencil 2: This stencil has two elements on it. There is the second layer of the petals (mid-tone pink) and first layer of the stems/foliage (lightest green). For this stencil, you have to selectively ink blend your mid-tone pink and green inks.
Stencil 3: This stencil has the third layer of the petals (darkest pink) and second layer of the stems/foliage (dark green). For this stencil, you have to also selectively ink blend your pink and green inks.
That is all for our Anniversary Release! We added some brand new designs but also revisited prior designs by adding coordinating stencils to our collection. I hope you enjoyed this colorful and beautiful gallery by our team. Head over to each of their blogs for more details on their projects and to leave them some love!
Hello everyone! It’s TaeEun here today with a sympathy card in a very soft color scheme. I used the Grouped Fresh Carnations set to stamp the soft pink flowers. Using the grouped layering stamp sets you can get all the elements you need to arrange your cluster with only a few stamping steps!
I foam mounted the background panel and arranged two carnations on it. The sentiment is from the Easy Expressions Sympathy set. I gold heat embossed the script part of it and stamped the other part in Noir.
Hi there crafty friends. Happy Friday! Vera here. Today, I am showcasing Blended Peonies Large Stencils set. I am a big fan of this large stencils just because I love the option of having 4 different designs in 1 set. You could really get a lot done with this kind of set.
For my card today instead of using all 4 designs, I only used 1. Honest confession, I made a booboo with my first attempt. Didn’t like the way the color came out, so I re-do it and by then I was short on time. So, using 1 design only it is. I blended Dolled Up, Deep Peony, Coral Cavern & Meadow to ink up the stencils. Once I am happy with the color then I die cut the piece using Blended Peonies Coordinating die. For the sentiment I used the timeless Love & Hugs Word Plate Dies. Can’t go wrong by mixing cursive sentiment with bold block sentiment in my opinion. 🙂
To finish I added some mixed size Crystal Clear Rhinestones. I sure hope the stencil trend will last for a long time since it’s one of my favorite way to make cards. Hope you enjoy today’s inspiration and wishing you all some good crafting time. Have a good weekend everyone.
Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great day! It’s TaeEun here today with a gorgeous alcohol inked poppy card! It’s been so long since I pulled out my alcohol inks last time. I love playing with alcohol inks and it’s so much fun but somehow I left my alcohol ink supplies in my drawer for so long 🙂 !
The Ton has so many Close Up floral stamps which are perfect for the alcohol ink coloring. As they are huge, you have lots of space to control the flow of the alcohol ink.
For today’s card I used the Poppy Close Up stamp. First I heat embossed it on a alcohol ink cardstock in gold and colored the large poppy in Mountain Rose, Poppyfield and Watermelon alcohol ink. I dropped the ink on the center of the petal and moved the ink towards the edge of it. I started with lighter color and darkened the flower. For the small areas I used a micro-applicator. If the ink goes over the outline, you can easily clean the area by rubbing it gently using a micro-applicator with some rubbing alcohol. I also colored the background in Cloudy Blue. After I was done with the coloring, I placed a gold foil over the colored panel and pressed it with a brayer so that the sticky parts of the colored flower get some gold foil transferred. The alcohol ink dries quickly but if it is concentrated on some area, it could take days to be completely dry. The foiling process saves me the drying time and I can get some gorgeous gold pattern !
Next I colored the seed pod with a brown fein Sharpie pen and splattered gold Mixative on the panel and colored the stamen with the gold Mixative using a micro-applicator.
The die cut sentiment is from the Script Word set. I cut it once from a gold cardstock and three times from white cardstock and glued them together. The “GET WELL SOON” sentiment is from the Coming Up Poppies set.
Happy Friday, fellow card makers and crafters!! I hope you’ve had a great week!!
I love the layering stencil trend right now, but sometimes I just NEED to color!! I actually stamped this out and colored it during the Super Bowl!! I used to be a die-hard football fan (back when the Rams were still in STL…don’t get me started. LOL!). We even had season tickets for several years. Although I was rooting for KC, I wasn’t glued to the television…ha!!
Hi all. Vera here. Happy Valentine’s Day to you all. On a day that’s all about love, a thinking of you card would be approriate, cause after all we often think of the people we love, right? So, today for my thinking of you card, I am using Magnificent Magnolias, a timeless older set. W was actually inspired by a previous card I made a while back HERE and decided to use the same technique.
To start, I stamped and heat embossed Magnolia Field Cling Background stamp on a piece of purple cardstock with white embossing powder. Adhere panel to card base. Next, I stamped the flowers from Magnificent Magnolias and die cut them using coordinating dies. Colored them with Copic markers.
Adhere to card base with foam adhesive. Finally for the sentiment i used one of the sentiment from Coming Up Daisies set. All in all this card came together pretty quick.
I hope you enjoy today’s card and I wish you all a very happy Valentine’s day with your loved ones. Cheers…
