Hello and welcome to the first day of our Release Week for our Spring 2017 Release! For this release we have 18 new stamps, 13 new Dies and 14 new Couture Mixes to share with you. We’ll reveal a little bit each day this week. Then on Day 4/April 6 at 7am EST, everything will be available for purchase in our shop!
Be sure to join us on Friday, April 7 for a mega hop where we have some super talented ladies joining us to celebrate this release. We are doing many giveaways this week (scroll to the end for more details) so be sure to check back each day on how to win some gift certificates to our shop.
Before I go further into release news, I have two more announcement: We are adding a Boutique to our shop! The Boutique will include curated items commonly used by myself and the team. Boutique items will include Zig Markers, Color Bursts, Nuvo Drops and other crafting essentials (in my opinion) that are not Ton branded but just as fabulous. Our Boutique will be open by Thursday! We hope you’ll check out the Boutique section in case you need to pick up additional crafting supplies.
For our second announcement, we have upgraded to a headache free Wishlist app on our shop site. It’s now very easy to add shop items to a wishlist and to also retrieve your list later on.

Now onto the stamps! First up is a closer look at our incentive stamps. Our new Mini Clusters are so pretty and versatile. They’re perfect for embellishing the corners of your paper crafts to add a pretty, floral touch. These products are exclusive** and will not be available until May. *They may be purchased at your local international retailer depending on the country.*
The newest addition to our new Fresh Cut series is our layered sunflower! Nothing says spring like some bright sunflowers on your paper crafts this season. As with most of our layering stamps, this set comes with a color printed layering guide for your reference so that you can line up your sunflowers perfectly each time!
TIP: Stamp the center of the sunflower first in a darker ink. This will make it easier to stamp and layer the petals.
This next stamp set coordinates with the layered Fresh Cut Sunflowers. We are release the Coordinating Outlines for all of you fabulous colorists out there 🙂
These dies coordinating with both the layered Fresh Cut Sunflower set and the Coordinating Outlines set.
Next is our Sunflower Bouquet which is a cluster of sunflowers that is perfect for coloring.
The last stamp to debut today is our Sunflower Garden which is an addition to our Garden Series Background stamps.
