Hello friends & happy Monday!! You know that I’m all about the coloring & stamp layering, but sometimes you need a simpler, graphic card. Especially for a high school or college graduate when you have no idea where the card will end up when they move into a dorm or new apartment!! My best friend’s son is graduating from college soon, so I thought this would be perfect for him!!
I began by stamping the black background panel with the Confetti Borders stamp set. I stamped it along the top and bottom of the panel with Versamark and heat embossed it with gold glitter embossing powder.
I die-cut “CONGRATS” from gold glitter cardstock with the Modern Alpha dies. (I love how the vowels are doubled in this!) I also cut the letters three more times from black cardstock, stacked and adhered them together for dimension.
“On your graduation,” from the Add-On Fill It In stamp set, was gold glitter heat embossed onto a black cardstock strip and matted with gold glitter paper. I trimmed the background panel slightly and added a strip of gold glitter paper to the top and bottom of the card base before adhering the background panel. I adhered “congrats” to the background, staggering the letters for a little interest, then the sentiment strip was popped up under it with a black adhesive strip.
I think this has enough sparkle to be festive, but not so much that it’s not suitable for a guy.
Thanks so much for stopping by and spending some time with me today!! Have a great week!!!

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a wonderful week so far! It’s TaeEun here sharing a couple of cards which are featuring the Peony Memories Cardmaking stamp set. This stamp set is designed for an easy layering and die cutting of multiple peony flowers and leaves.
I cut all the images using the coordinating die and set them aside. This die cuts the whole panel of the stamped images in one pass! Now I have a bunch of flowers and leaves to play with 🙂 !
For my first card I stamped the Man from the Lean Back stamp set in Crystal Pewter on a Canson watercolor paper panel. I then colored him loosely in black using wet on wet watercoloring technique. I also did a watercolor wash in black on the bottom half of the panel. After the panel was completely dry I splattered black ink on it and let it dry.
I cut the panel using a Double Stitched Rectangle die slightly smaller than A2 size and foam mounted it on a black cardbase. I arranged the blue peonies and gray leaves as shown in the picture and added them to the card. Some of the flowers were raised using foam adhesives.
I mounted the background panel flat on a soft pink cardbase and arranged the peony field on the bottom of the panel. I mixed yellow, blue and purple peonies and used the green leaves. Some of the peonies were adhered using foam tapes.
To add some shine and sparkle to the card I colored the open area of the hot air balloons using a Stardust clear gel pen and covered the whole balloon with shimmer Pico Embellisher. I finished off the card by scattering some Glass Slippers sequins.
That’s it from me today! Hope I could give you some inspiration on how to use our new stamps 🙂 !
Hello & happy Monday!! I hope you had a great weekend!!!
Are you enjoying the new February Release? You still have today to hop along and comment for your chance to win a stamp of your choice from the new release!! Get started HERE!!!
I have a card to share featuring the Lovely Lily stamp set.
I absolutely love the possibilities with this stamp!! You can color it and make it into any type of lily you want!!
I colored the Lovely Lily with Copics and colored pencils for some no-line coloring and fussy cut it out. I white heat embossed the greeting onto black cardstock with the 2nd Edition Fill It In Sentiments stamp set. Diluted white gouache was splattered onto the panel.
Once it was dry, I trimmed the panel slightly and adhered it to a white cardbase. The lily was popped up with foam adhesive and I added some Pink Diamond and Waltz White sequins for the final touch!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Have a wonderful week!!!
Hello and welcome back, everyone! Today, we’re releasing 8 new stamp designs (with two coordinating dies) and one standalone die. We are skipping our usual blog and IG hops after our release debut day BUT we are going to have an amazing Youtube Video Hopon February 21st with some spectacular guests so be sure to join us on our Youtube Channel because that’s where all the fun will begin!
To celebrate our February release, we have a double rewards points promotion. This promo expires on February 24th.
We also had our soft release for new planner stamps a couple of weekends ago! So in addition to our new stamps releasing today, we have 12 additional new planner stamps (if you’re in that kind of thing)! Find more details on our planner stamps here.
Now let’s introduce our new designs for today! First up is our Peony Memories! I am SO excited about this design.
Our Peony Memories comes in two versions: a Scrapbooking version and a Cardmaking version. Both sets are 9×12 inch photopolymer sets (HUGE!). The floral design in both sets are the exact same but the sentiments are different. The single coordinating die will cut out the floral and leaf panel in one pass.
The floral and leaf images are three layer stamps. However, they are GROUPED stamps. So each layer is stamped together. Once you’ve completely stamped your panel with your florals and leaves, the coordinating die will cut your panel out in one pass. No more stamping and die cutting individual elements!
Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!
I’ll be dedicating an entire blog post tomorrow on tips on how to use this stamp set! So be sure to come back to our blog tomorrow.
Here are some samples created by our team!

Created by Effie using our Peony Memories Cardmaking stamp and Modern Alphas Coverplate Die (Hi sentiment on teal card). Inks: Ruby Collection Inks, Amethyst Collection, Citrine Collection, Coral Collection, Bright Emerald Dye, Hot Tourmaline Dye and Ocean Teal Dye.
This is one of my most favorite set of cards ever. The colored cardstock backgrounds are so bright and colorful. I have tons of colored cardstock that I don’t use that often so this set stamp set will motivate me to use up more of my cardstock stash!
Next up is our Modern Alphas Coverplate die! This coverplate die will cut out all the letters of the alphabet in a sleek and modern font in a one pass through your die cutting machine.
Our newest coloring outline stamp is our Lovely Lily! I, unfortunately, was not able to obtain stamp samples in time for the release but the entire team used the digital stamp to create these projects.
The newest addition to our alphas collection is our Roma Alphas set. It features solid and outline alphas in a clean and modern font.
Next up is our Quick Labels stamp and coordinating die! This is another “grouped” stamp. All of the labels are one stamp. The single coordinating die will cut out all of the labels in one pass.
GIVEAWAY: We’re giving away one stamp set of choice from our February Release. To qualify, leave a comment here and on each blog linked in this post. Comment period ends on 2/17. The winner will be announced here on the blog on 2/18.
We’re forgoing the usual Instagram Hops after today for this release. However, we will have an amazing Youtube Video Hop next week Friday on February 21 at 3pm EST. The fun starts on our Youtube Channel and then continue on to hop along other talented crafters’ channels to celebrate this release!
I hope you all enjoyed all the amazing eye candy today!
I am excited to share today’s card as the idea for this card been swirling in my head for a while.
For this card, I want to have a soft background and after going back and forth on several image, I decided to go with Transformation. I can honestly say this is one of my all time favorite set from the Ton.
For the word happy I partial stamped the happy birthday sentiment from Macarons set. And, of course, I have to add some mix size dew drops to finish the card.
I am very happy with the way this card turned out. It’s soft looking, totally my style. What do you think of this Layered Floral Alphas set? I for one looking forward to play more with this set and create different look simply by changing the color I used. So fun!
Well peeps, that’s all for me for today. Hope you enjoy today’s card and may your weekend starts off wonderfully. Cheers y’all!
I started off with a piece of 6x6inch cardstock panel. Then I stamped the grouped layer stamps using a combination of our Dark Roast, Rose Quartz, Soft Garnet, Bright Emerald and Hot Tourmaline Dye Inks.
**Make sure you clean the bars/squares on your stamp blocks. These will help you align each layer to get perfectly stamped alphas each time you go to use this set.**
I stamped my alphas three times and cut them all out using the coordinating die. Then I partially stamped and cut out the vowels at the top row of my grouped stamps so that I can create additional cards with my leftover alphas. **The coordinating die is available for purchase separately from the stamp bundle. The die does not come with the stamps.**
Next, I stamped a few background panel using our patterned background stamps. I also created stitched panel to pop up on the background panels. On some of the stitched panels, I stamped the leaf cluster from our Fresh Cut Roses set.
Once all my pieces were stamped and cut, I assembled them and popped them all up.
For this card, I added some of our Abstract Peonies to create a clean and simple card. The background stamp is our Fresh Linen stamp.
For this card, I added some images from our Sunny Folk Garden set. The background stamp is our Fresh Linen stamp.
For this card, I added a leaf cluster background to the stitched panel. The leaf cluster is from our Fresh Cut Roses stamp. The background stamp is our Diagonal Stripes stamp.
Here’s a close up look at another card. The florals in this set will be released later this month!
I hope you enjoyed all the projects! Thanks for stopping by and making The Ton a part of your day.
