Trending with The Ton and WCMD 2015

Good morning! It’s Effie here today with our monthly Trending with The Ton post where we showcase some amazing projects we’ve spotted all over social media and the blogosphere. We LOVE seeing what you do with The Ton products, whether they be our couture stampsdies, or gilding.

Before I get started with our Trending post, I just want to announce that we’ll be participating in World Cardmaking Day for the time ever!  Be sure to stop by our blog this Saturday, October 3 because we’re kicking off this international event with a fun blog hop which will start right here and continue onto our talented design team members’ blogs.  We’ll have several $25 gift code giveaway prizes!

In addition to the blog hop, we’ll be hosting our first ever Project Challenge where you’ll be able to link up your cards/projects made with The Ton Stamps and/or Gilding (The Ton products must be the focal point of your card/project). There is no specific theme, we just want to see your new projects (no back linking). Prizes for the challenge will be a $25 gift code (first place) and several $10 gift codes for our runner ups. Stop by our blog on Saturday, October 8 for more details!!  

For our Trending with The Ton post, I will be spotlighting a few projects that I’ve noticed over the past few weeks.  Don’t be discouraged if we haven’t featured you yet – to increase your chances of being spotted, tag your social media posts (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Youtube) with #theton or #thetonstamps.  We also have a Flickr group for you to add your projects to as well as a Pinterest page.

If we share your work on a Trending with The Ton post, we’d love for you to display our badge proudly!


The first card I spotted for this month’s post was Chris’ simple, classy and stunning created by using our Large Peony 2 stamp set.  We found her card on Instagram and had to share it!

I found another card by Chris (she got down to business with her new stamps!) where she used our new Holiday Bows set to create a clean and simple holiday card.

Next I found this great video tutorial by Justine on Youtube where she created a soft and pretty card using our Peony Garden background stamp.

Next, I found this beautiful, bright fall themed card by Jacquie over in the Stamp Junkies Facebook group created with our new layered Autumn Foliage stamp set.  Her nontraditional leaf colors totally pop off the page!

Next, I spotted this beautiful floral card by our good friend, Virginia, where she used our Fresh Cut Dahlias.  She was inspired to make this fun and bright card from her recent travels!

Next, I found this pretty card made by Julie Goodfellow over in the Stamping Enablers Facebook group where she created some bold contrast using our Petal Cut Peonies Standalone Dies.

Holiday card making season is just around the corner so I had to include the next set of cards by Sherry (@bahlmans on Instagram).  She created a chic set of holiday cards with our Second Edition Solid Shoe Wardrobe set and Round Diamonds set.  I love seeing non-holiday stamps used for holiday cards. What a great way to stretch your stamps!

I found the next set of cards on Instagram by Tracie (@traciepond). She, too, got down to business with her new stamps when she received our new Fresh Cut Dahlias.  Tracie selectively used the layers in this set to create these fun cards.

The next project I spotted was by Amy on Instagram (@thecraftbunny). She made a super chic pocket letter with our Shoe Wardrobe Outline stamp set.  Everyone needs a little Louboutin in their lives, even if it’s just a stamped version 😉  Our Shoe Wardrobe sets are super trendy and so on point right now with all the different fashion week shows going on (New York, Milan, Paris, etc).
