**We are holding the release of the Oscar Stamp sets pending permission from the Academy. Unfortunately, there is an additional stamp set (one that has not been debuted) that also had to be pulled from this release. Thus, The Ton has a total of 26 new designs releasing on Thursday, January 12. We hope you understand!**

Hello, everyone and welcome to Day 1 of our 2017 Anniversary Release Week!  We are so excited to share so many new products with you this week.  This month we celebrate our second anniversary and to kick off our celebrations, we have 26 new stamp designs and 7 new mixes to show you!  We’ll be debuting all 26 sets starting from today until Thursday.  On Thursday, January 12 at 7am EST, all new products will be available in our shop! Then join us on Friday for a fun blog hop with some talented special guests and our amazing design team!

Additionally, we are starting an official Challenge Blog for The Ton which will be a monthly forum where you can share your handmade creations using The Ton products based on a specific theme.  For this month’s challenge, we have a very special guest who I’m so lucky to call a close friend, the ever fabulous Laurel Beard. She’s been such an inspiration and a great resource in starting this challenge. Furthermore, our amazingly talented design team will continue to provide inspiration for our blog and for the challenges so you won’t miss out on their creations.  Head over to the Challenge Blog now and enter your creations based on this month’s theme: Celebration.

Alright! Let’s get started with the debuts!  Today we have 8 stamps and 2 new Couture Mixes to show you which include our exclusive Anniversary Incentive Stamps which I like to refer to as our Gifts With Purchases* (GWPs). Our new incentive stamps and mix will not be available for immediate purchase. They’ll become available in our shop sometime next month! Our Anniversary GWP promotions will end on January 19 at 11:59pm EST or until supplies last.  This promotion does not apply to prior purchases. There is no need to enter any code at check out either. Your GWPs will be included in your packages automatically if you meet the threshold amounts.

Our newest addition our Fresh Cut series is our Fresh Cut Poppies!  There are three different florals in the set that have three layers to stamp perfectly layered poppies. This set will also come with a color printed layering guide.

Next is the Coordinating Outlines Fresh Cut Poppies set. You can stamp the outlines with the layered set or stamp them alone to color with your favorite mediums.


Thoughtful Poppies, 4×6 Photopolymer Clear

Next is our Thoughtful Poppies which is a beautiful cluster of poppies and foliage. There is no need to mask with this stamp. All you need to do is stamp and color!


Freestyle Stripes, 6×6 Red Rubber Cling

Next up is our Freestyle Stripes! It’s a modern and chic striped background pattern that can serve as a perfect backdrop for most of your paper crafts.


Scripty Alphas Upper, 4×6 Photopolymer Clear

We had to include a Scripty Alpha set in this release so we chose this beautiful font to add to our collection. So we added the Upper and Lower case sets to our Alpha collection.


Scripty Alphas Lower, 4×6 Photopolymer Clear

Now that you’ve seen all the new sets for today, let’s begin the gallery of beautiful inspiration by our team!  You can find additional details on each team member’s blogs for more information on how they made each of their spectacular cards.

Tae Eun created a soft watercolored card using our Thoughtful Poppies. I love the nontraditional blue palette that she used to create this CAS masterpiece.


Next is Vera’s card using our Thoughtful Poppies! She stamped the floral cluster directly over her soft Freestyle Stripes to create a simple but eye catching card. No need to color this beauty!


Emily’s next card is beautiful watercolor combination of pinks and yellows created with our Thoughtful Poppies.


Next is my card created with our Thoughtful Poppies and Flutter Mini sets!

Supplies Used: Rose Gold Embossing Powder, Soft Amethyst Dye Ink, Dew Drops Mixed, Double Stitched Rectangle Dies.poppy4

My last two cards were created with our Thoughtful Poppies. For the black card, I simply gold heat embossed the poppy cluster stamp and sentiment onto black cardstock. I added Metallic Gold sequins to embellish the card. Here’s a quick video on the black card!

For the second card, I rose gold heat embossed the the cluster again on white cardstock. I stamped the cluster at the edges of the panel to create a repeat pattern. Lastly, I added the  Hello die cut sentiment. 15800132_1151485238283205_7236805249152107957_o

Eunji created a fun background pattern of letters using our new Scripty Alphas (Upper and Lower) set! 15844681_1130483160382734_8343583731526138182_o

LauraJane’s custom rose gold message in her shaker card created with our Scripty Alphas Upper and Lower sets is a beautiful one that we should remember each day.  The subtle pink Freestyle Striped background is the perfect background pattern for this beautiful message.


Emily’s next card is an adorable card with an encouraging message created with our Scripty Alphas (Upper and Lower) and Honey Bears sets. 15875265_1715575808756164_6422592125580187383_o

    WOW! I am new to the Ton and you have wonderful stamps etc. I started to think “this one is m favorite” and quickly tossed that out the window. I can’t pick a favorite! They are all so different and so lovely. Thanks for an opportunity to win. Golly I would not know where to start!


  2. Marty Larson says:

    After the last release, The Ton zipped to the top of my Christmas list, and now this release comes! Thank goodness, I received gift cards! And it’s my birthday! Watch out, here I come!
    I love poppies, and so did my mother-in-law. These poppy stamps are so gorgeous, and the cards are sublime.


  3. lindsay weber says:

  5. Amy Vitriani says:

    This is an amazing release!!! The layering stamps are just stunning!!! And the script letters are beautiful!!! All the DT cards are so pretty 😊


  6. Mary Holshouser says:

    Love that the poppies are layered stamps.
    I was afraid of them but now that I’ve used
    them I use them a lot. Get such detail
    without as much work on my part.
    The hop was fantastic.
    thanks for sharing.


  7. Angela E Walters says:

    I just went through the entire DT’s blogs and their creations are gorgeous! I don’t know how to color without using the lines, so I didn’t feel like I would ever be able to recreate most of them. However, they were beautiful to see! Your products are always fantastic!


  8. Laura Peddicord says:

    It always amazes me to see one stampset (poppies in this case) used by several designers and how different their cards are. Each one is so pretty and the artwork is breathtaking! Thank you for sharing!


  9. Marcia K Designs says:

    The new release is beautiful. Love how detailed your layered stamps are explained. Beautiful creations from all your designers.


  10. Jen K says:

    We had family members that fought in WWI & our grandma took us to Belgium a few years ago. We went to the Flanders field American Cemetery. They had the poem “In Flanders Field” about the poppies. Poppies always remind me of my grandma and our history. So, when I saw the layered poppies released & the GORGEOUS coloring jobs from your team members, my heart just stopped! I LOVE the stamps! Great job on ANOTHER amazing release!!!


  11. Teresa Doyle says:

    OH MY GOODNESS Effie, I am relatively new to The Ton but I LOVE what I am seeing! I cannot imagine what else you could be debuting that could top this! ALL of the DT has really done this release justice! (So glad I found this today! TFS!)

  14. Barb Macaskill says:

    Absolutely magnificent release!! So many fantabulous creations that I am just in awe! Such talented designers creations that truly showcase the beautiful stamps! If I had the money I would just say to put one of everything in a box and ship it my way but thanks to prescription costs that is not possible!! I am going to keep my fingers crossed in hopes of being one of the lucky winners so I can get a set or two! Thanks for the chance to win some of these amazing products! I know they are going to be used frequently! Have a great day!
