For my first pair of projects, I used our GWP Promotion stamp: Gifted. This set features three different gift box clusters (in addition to individual gift boxes). I really love this set for it’s ability to customize the different tones for each of the different gift boxes in the clusters since they are spaced out. You can just ink up different portions of each stamp creating a multi toned stamped image.

For my first card, I stamped my gift cluster using a variety of our Couture Color Inks (Hot Tourmaline, Bright Emerald, Cosmopolitan Pink, Azurite, Cali Blue and Hollywood Star).

Once stamped, I fussy cut my stamped image (dies are available). Next, I rose gold heat embossed our Delicate Grid background stamp onto white cardstock. Then I created a border using the two largest dies of our Double Stitched Rectangles (large) die collection. Then I assembled my card by mounting the border onto the rose gold embossed background. I additionally popped up my gift cluster.

For my sentiment, I used our Hugs word die (die cut from black cardstock). I adhered this directly onto my background. The Happy Birthday portion of the sentiment is from our Basic Banners (white heat embossed onto black cardstock and popped up). Lastly, I embellished my project using our Gold Medallion Sequins.

For my second card, the process was almost identical with a different background stamp. First, I stamped our Bare Tones background in Cali Blue ink. Then I die cut a white stitched panel using the second die from our Double Stitched Rectangles Large Die Collection. Then I assembled the background panel, white stitched panel and Gifted stamped cluster image together. I added our Gold Medallion sequins to complete my card.

For my next pair of cards, I used our layered Power Pumps set which I am currently obsessed with!

My first card was very simple (left)! I stamped the three step layered heels stamps in our Caviar Hybrid Ink, Smoky Quartz (highlight) and Red Sangria Hybrid). The sentiment was also stamped in our Caviar. Lastly, I trimmed my panel which I popped up onto a side folding A2 base.

The second card was created in a similar fashion. I just changed up my ink colors (Azurite, Cobalt Breeze and Vanilla Frosted Cupcake) and added more panels to layer my mats for more contrast. I also added the jeweled element to my shoes (stamped in our Caviar Hybrid Ink and Crystal Pewter).


We have giveaways everyday on these mini hops! Win a stamp of choice from our 4th Anniversary Release. To enter, leave a comment on each blog each day. We’ll choose one winner per day (4 winners total) and announce the winners on our blog by January 12. The comment period for all release giveaways will close on January 11 at 7pm EST. 

That is all from me today. Thank you for making The Ton a part of your day today! Your next stop on today’s hop is the talented and awesome Amy!
