For my project today, I used our beautiful Smiling Cosmos set. This is our new 4×6 floral cluster stamp. The actual stamp is large! It almost covers an entire 4×6 panel.

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by heat embossing the floral image onto watercolor paper with our Rose Gold Embossing Powder. Then I did some loose watercoloring with Ken Oliver Color Bursts. For my cosmos petals, I added three different colors: Cerulean Blue, Indigo and Orchid. I love the three toned look to the petals once the paint finally dried.

Once the petals were painted, I painted the leaves with Olive Green color bursts. There are other smaller foliage and sprig elements in the cluster which I painted with Turquoise color bursts. The painting process went very quickly for this card since the design is more stylized.

Once my panel was dried, I die cut the watercolor panel into a stitched A2 panel using the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles Large Die Collection. I stamped (Caviar Hybrid Ink) my sentiment from the same set, trimmed it out and then popped it up onto my panel. Next, I mounted the painted panel onto a top folding A2 base and added some Gold Medallion sequins to embellish my card.

That’s all from me today! Your next stop on this hop is our super talented DT member Tae Eun!

    Effie, your cosmos stamp set is wonderful. They are such “happy” flowers & the combination of the colour bursts you used makes them look glorious. Let me congratulate you on your 4th anniversary. I’d not been introduced to The Ton stamps before but I must say I am so very impressed with what I’ve seen in this release. And then to learn that this is your company & you design, create & run your business single-handed, well, what can I say other than you must be a strong woman of character. Bravo Effie!!

    Once upon a time I stumbled on a demo by this gal named Effie. I thought to myself “How talented she is! She’s magic!” and I continued to look for her demos. She demo-ed for this company called The Ton. At the time – all I knew about really was the rose gold embossing powder – because I asked. And the flowers. And Effie’s magic.
    It was quite an epiphany (aka how stupid could I have been?) when I realized that Effie IS The Ton? I just hadn’t put 2 and 2 together.
    Fast forward – I anticipate her videos and demos now and, somehow, am even more appreciative of her magic!
    Thank you, Effie, for your magic, your demos, and The Ton. And thank you for this blog hop. I love seeing others’ work the magic, too.

    Ever since seeing your rose gold embossing powder for the first time, I can only use it from The Ton. No other will do. The watercolor makes the flowers shine.


  8. Susan Young says:
