**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 GWP (Gift With Purchase) Couture Mix for this release is our new Cotton Candy Puff Mix! Who doesn’t love pink and gold? This mix is included in all orders over $75 (before taxes and shipping).
Our new Flutter Mini Set is our a mini layered butterfly set that will be included in all purchases of $100 or more (before taxes and shipping).
Our new Lone Poppy set has layered and outline poppy stamps that allows you to create beautiful layered poppies or outline poppies that are perfect for coloring. This set also comes with a pretty vase stamp. Our Lone Poppy set will be included in all purchases of $150 or more (before taxes and shipping).
Here is some inspiration created by our team using our new GWP sets!
Tae Eun created a beautiful centerpiece with our Lone Poppy set. That background pattern? keep scrolling for it’s debut!
LauraJane’s next card created with our Lone Poppy and Flutter Mini set is a framed masterpiece!
Mayline also created a watercolored beauty using our Flutter Mini and Lone Poppy sets.
Now let’s get onto the rest of the stamps and mixes for today!
Our second mix of the day is our new Princess Glam mix! It contains a mix of pastel purples, orchids and gold holographic sequins!
I also just wanted to thank LauraJane’s daughter for naming the mixes for this release!! She came up with some really great ones! Stay tuned for the next few days to see them all.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
First up is Eunji’s card created with our Fresh Cut Poppies. She added sone beautiful shading to achieve this beautiful artistic look!
Next up is Tae Eun’s gorgeous cluster of Fresh Cut Poppies. The contrast against the Outline Poppies in the background is just eye catching!
Next is Vera’s card created with our Fresh Cut Poppies. She made a beautiful collage using all the different floral elements from both layered and outline sets!
Eunji created a lovely bouquet of poppies using our Fresh Cut Poppies. This time, she went for an alternative blue that makes this card a winner.
Next is my card created with our Fresh Cut Poppies and Flutter Mini sets!
Additional Supplies Used: Dew Drops Mixed, Coral Cavern Dye Ink, Lipstick Red Dye Ink, Aspen Cocoa Dye Ink, Noir Dye Ink, Crystal Garden Dye Ink Collection, Citrine Dye Ink Collection, Glossy Fine Gold Adhesive Paper, Double Stitched Rectangle Dies.
For my next card, I did some generation stamping with the second layer stamps from our Fresh Cut Poppies. The sentiment was stamped using our Scripty Alphas Lower set and another set which will be debuted tomorrow!
Additional Supplies Used: Lipstick Red Dye Ink, Coral Cavern Dye Ink, Minted Couture Collection Collection, Crystal Pewter Dye Ink, Light Onyx Dye Ink and Princess Glam Couture Mix, Double Stitched Rectangle Dies.
Next is Jenny’s Coordinating Outline Fresh Cut Poppy card! I love the purple tones she used to create her field of poppies.
Mayline’s next card created with our Fresh Cut Poppies Coord. Outlines set is a watercolored beauty!
Tae Eun kept her next card clean and simple with her outline poppy but she added a bright twist with her multicolored Freestyle Striped background! Her custom sentiment created with our new Scripty Alphas sets are a lovely touch to the card.
Eunji’s next card is another watercolored beauty created with our outline Poppies!
LauraJane’s next card created with our Thoughtful Poppies is so pretty and pink! The nontraditional pink of the poppies make this card a super special one!
Mayline’s next card created with our Thoughtful Poppies is gorgeously watercolored in her unique and beautiful trademark style.
Next is Jenny’s copic colored Thoughtful Poppies card! She kept with the traditional red color palette, but this card is anything but traditional! The placement of her poppy clusters make this an eye-catching beauty.
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.
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.
Eunji created a fun background pattern of letters using our new Scripty Alphas (Upper and Lower) set!
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.
To finish off this amazing gallery for the day, Mayline’s last card created with our Scripty Alphas Upper and Lower sets. She created a beautiful watercolored card with this uplifting message!
