Life’s All About Rainbow, Glitter and Unicorns…and Flowers

Hello fellow card makers & happy Thursday to you all!! Brenda, here with you today. I have three cards to share!! Here’s the first one…


I had so much fun with this set!! I can’t wait to use it more!! I HAD to use the sentiment “Life’s all about rainbows, glitter and unicorns”…isn’t that the cutest? I wanted to include a unicorn,  rainbow & glitter on my card!! I used the Lavish Donuts & Unicorn Bundle, the Lavish Unicorn Ears and Horn, and Lavish Floral Cluster Coordinating Dies. I started off by stamping the horn with Vanilla Frosted Cupcake ink onto white cardstock. I colored it with Copic markers and cut with the Coordinating Die. I pounced the horn onto a Versamark Ink pad, heat embossed with Sticky Embossing Powder and applied clear super-fine glitter. The ears were stamped with Rose Quartz Ink & colored with Copic markers, before cutting with the Coordinating Die. Next, the flowers were stamped with Rose Quartz, Hollywood Star & Red Sangria. Soft Garden & Bright Fern Inks were used for the leaves. It was also cut out with the Coordinating Die. The eyelashes were also heat embossed with Sticky Embossing Powder toward the bottom of the card base, before applying black super-fine glitter. The sentiment was stamped with Noir Ink onto the top of the card base. All of the die-cuts were then attached to the card base with dimensional adhesive.


Here’s the second card, this one uses the Daisy (3/4 View) Close Up Cling Background stamp…


This stamp is beautiful!!! I stamped it with Vanilla Frosted Cupcake for some no-line coloring. I colored it with Copic markers and added details with colored pencils. I die-cut the hello from Bold General Greeting Word Plate Dies from the lower right corner, as well as some yellow fun foam. I trimmed the colored panel down and adhered it to a piece of pink cardstock panel cut to 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. The die-cut letters were adhered to the fun foam, then placed back into the negative die-cut letters on the panel. Some shimmer from a Clear Wink of Stella Clear pen was added to the die-cut letters. Finally, a few sequins from the Pink Bokeh and Pink Diamond Couture Mixes finished of the card. I love the pop of color that the yellow fun foam adds!!!



There was a new Anemone Border Cling Stamp released in the last Flash Release.


This time I chose to stamp with Versamark Ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder. I watercolored the image with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and splattered on some color mixed with water. I cut the amazing from Bold Amazing Words Die from the center of the panel. I trimmed it down slightly and mounted to a piece of green glitter paper. The “You Are” is from the Loose Roses set and was stamped with Deep Emerald Ink onto a strip of white cardstock, before being cut into a small banner. A combination of sequins from the Pink Diamond and Misty Mint Couture Mixes were a perfect match!!


Also, the March Challenge is going on now!! The theme this month is SPRING!!! Come play along for a chance to win $50 to The Ton’s Store!!!


Thanks so much for spending some time with me today!!! Have a great weekend!!!

Two, Toot Sweets!

Hello everyone!  LauraJane here today with some TOOT SWEET cards for you!

When I saw the newly released Lavish Donuts and Unicorns Bundle , I noticed how the Unicorn horn could also look like a waffle/sugar cone. However, since there are no large scoops of ice cream in The Ton’s stamps, I decided to use blooms from Painted PeoniesTimeless Peonies Print,and Riotous Wildflowers for the “ice-cream.”

Take a look:)


I call this first one Strawberries and Cream…which also happens to be the name of the Couture mix that perfectly embellishes this decadent delight:)

Inks: Lofty Mint, Diamond Blue, Rose Quartz, Cosmo Pink, Hollywood Star, Found Topaz and Warm Hazelnut

Dies: Lavish Unicorn Ears and Horn Dies,  Timeless Peonies Print Coordinating DiePainted Peonies Coordinating DieDouble Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large)



Not wanting to stop with just ONE floral cone, I moved on to Vanilla Bean for my next card:)

Hello Gorgeous Daisy Duet

Hello, it’s Lisa here again!  I’m stopping by to share card with you here on The Ton blog today, featuring the beautiful Daisy Duet Stamp set.  I stamped the Daisies in Noir ink and then clear heat embossed  on Canson 140 lb cardstock.  I did some bright watercoloring using Ken Oliver Colorbursts.  These daisies are the perfect size for easy watercoloring.   The coordinating die for this Daisy Duet makes cutting so easy!

For this card I used the following supplies from The Ton store:

I stamped the background with the Delicate Polka Dots Cling Background. using The Ton’s Beach Blondie ink.  To create a little window box for the daisies,  I stamped another background using the awesome Buildable Woodgrain Background stamp set with Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Warm Hazelnut and Found Topaz Couture inks.   I trimmed off  a strip to fit the bottom of the card then stamped the xtra large “gorgeous” stamp from the Seriously Amazing Sentiments stamps in Noir ink.

Have a Magical Day!

Hello, crafty friends! Happy Friday! 🙂 It’s Jenny here and I have couple of fun unicorn cards to share with you today! I created these cards using our new (available for preorders) Lavish Donuts and Unicorns Bundle stamp set, Lavish Unicorn Ears and Horn Dies, Lavish Floral Cluster Die, and Lavish Donut Cardbase Die! I kept one unicorn pink (my favorite color!) and kept the other one green in the spirit of St. Patrick’s day tomorrow! I’m pleased how these cards turned out and my little one LOVES them as unicorns are her newest obsession! 🙂



I started off by die cutting the cardbases using our new Lavish Donut Cardbase Die. Next, I stamped the outer edge on the cardbase in our Ruby Collection Couture Color for the pink unicorn and Basil Mojito Dye ink for the green unicorn. I stamped the eyes and sentiments in our Noir Dye ink. For the ears and horn, I used the same inks for the pink unicorn and went ahead and gold heat embossed for the green unicorn. I die cut them out using the Lavish Unicorn Ears and Horn Dies and adhered them on the cardbase. I added bit of shading with Prismacolor color pencils on the pink ears and horns.


Then I stamped the floral clusters using the same inks for the pink unicorn and Lemon Drop Dye, Crystal Garden Collection, and Basil Mojito for the green unicorn. I die cut them out using the Lavish Floral Cluster Die and popped it up on the card. I dressed up the pink unicorn card by adhered My Tutu and Glass Slippers sequins. For the green unicorn, I adhered some Key Lime, Deep Sage, and Gold Medallion sequins.

Jigsaw Hearts & A Thank You

Hi peeps! How are y’all doing? Vera here today. Being in Texas I sure been enjoying the nice, spring weather. And, yes, with last Sunday time spring forward, all is well in my world. I love having more daylights. It makes me happy. And, my puppies enjoying it, too. They get to play on the backyard more.

Speaking about puppies…, I actually made 2 cards featuring puppies! I am a doggy lover at heart and when I saw the new Heart Jigsaw Dies (Stitched Version), I just know I want to mix it with Love & A Dog.


For this card, I first colored a cardstock panel with distress ink and flicked some water on it to create some pattern. Then I run the Heart Jigsaw dies over it and adhere to the card base. Then I stamped and die cut the dog and adhere to card with pop dots. Added a strip of patterned paper and stamped the sentiment from Perfect Fit Sentiment. Finished by adding Pink Sugar Sparkling Clear Sequin, Bermuda Blue Sequin and Glass Slipper Sequin.


On to the next card. This time I play with Heart Jigsaw Dies (Cut Version)  Same step, except this one I just colored the panel with one color. I feel like this second card has more modern feeling. Maybe because of the navy stripe on the bottom.

Now, since I was on a card making mode, I decided to switch direction & made a more serious looking card. Hah, whenever I do non cutesy or sweet card, I always call it serious looking card.

Besides dogs, I love birds. Well, really I love animal in general. Anyway, I wanted to play with The Ton Winter Cardinal  and its coordinating dies set? Well, I decided to color it with a bit more springy color. I added some shades to the bird with Copic and once I am happy with the coloring then I adhere the bird to the card base that I already covered with patterned paper.


I finished the card by stamping the thank you sentiment from Occasion Confetti set.

I know, I know, I am a bit all over the place with my cards for today’s post, but hey, that’s how I work. I just follow my gut and create however I feel. Even if the cards not related in theme, I still want to share it. 🙂

Well peeps, that’s all for today. 3 cards in 1 post is quite an achievement for me. Hope you enjoy the cards and thank you for stopping by here. Don’t forget we also have our March challenge going on and you have till the end of the month to play along. Check out the challenge detail and enter your project HERE.

Gerber Daisies

Hello Everyone! Anna here to share with you two cards I made using floral stamps.


For my first card I stamped an image from Coming Up Daisies stamp set onto a watercolor paper using Versamark Ink and embossed it in white. I colored beautiful daisies using Holbein watercolors. Once the image was completely dry, I cut it out with coordinating dies.


Then I mounted it on a white card base and stamped the sentiment in Noir. Next, I added a few sequins from Summer Skies Couture Mix to finish it up.

To create my second card, I started by stamping images from Fresh Cut Daisies (Coord. Outlines) on white cardstock in Caviar, colored them with Copic markers and cut them out using Fresh Cut Daisies Coordinating Dies.


To create background I used Holbein watercolors. Then, I stamped the sentiment with Noir and adhered all images to the card.


Lastly, I added a few sequins from Pink Diamond Couture Mix to add a touch of sparkle.

Sending Watercolored LOVE

Hello everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a couple of watercolor cards with you. I’m using our new products from February and March Flash Release along with floral stamps from the 3rd Anniversary Release.

For my first card I used the Cut version of Heart Jigsaw Die from March Flash Release. There is a stitched version too, which cuts only one puzzle piece. I used the Cut version ,  as I wanted to have the open piece of the heart puzzle on the large peony from Peony Bouquet. 🙂

TT0312 1 1 WM

I started off by stamping the Peony Bouquet in a watercolor friendly black ink on Canson XL watercolor paper. I watercolored the bouquet and background mainly in pink (Crimson lake and Bright Opera). I then stamped the sentiment from Perfect Fit Sentiments set in Noir on the panel and cut the bouquet using Cut version of Heart Jigsaw Die . I taped the pieces together on the back, took the thin heart outline and one puzzle piece off the panel and taped the panel on the front together using painter’s tape.

TT0312 1 CU3 WM

To add more interest I stamped the Minor Stripes in Cosmopolitan Pink Hybrid ink on the white cardbase. I covered the area where the missing puzzle piece would be placed with a piece of scrap paper so that it stays white.

The front panel held together with painter’s tape was then foam mounted onto the cardbase. I colored the thin heart outline die cut using a red sparkle marker, added Crystal Stickles on it and placed it back onto the front panel.

TT0312 1 CU6 WM

The missing piece from the heart was stacked on a pink foam and glued above the sentiment. To finish off I added some sequins from Pink Bokeh and Sakura Petals Couture Mix.

TT0312 1 CU8 WM

Now to my second card for today!

TT0312 2 2 new

I stamped the daisy and leaves from Fresh Cut Daisies Outlines in light ink, watercolored them and added details and shading using Polychromos colored pencils. I cut them with coordinating dies and set them aside.

TT0312 2 CU5 WM

To make the background I first created a watercolor wash in Payne’s gray and gold watercolor on the center of a panel. I then dry embossed the panel with 2 Piece Foliage Coverplate die. I die cut a piece of watercolor paper again using the same die to get the frame part and colored it in gold watercolor. I stacked the frame on three more die cut pieces from some white cardstock and glued it onto the background panel. The sentiment  in Noir is from Sweet Folk Hummingbird.

TT0312 2 CU1 WM

I foam mounted the background panel on the white cardbase and arranged the daisies as shown in the picture. I finished off the card by adding some Medallion Gold sequins.

Magnolias Card

Hello everyone! Olga is here again. I created the card using Geometric Circle Coverplate Die for the background and I can’t wait to show it to you!


First step was blending the cardstock with Plum Wine Dye, Grape Crush and Italian Denim Dye. Then I took another sheet of the cardstock and blending it with Soft Garden Dye and Lemon Drop Dye. Then I just glued sheets together.


I stamped the magnolias of Magnificent Magnolias Stamp Set using Noir Dye. Then I colored it using watercolor markers and applied Coordinating Die.


The next step was performing the title. I took the sentiment of I Got You Stamp Set and stamped it on the velum using Noir Dye.


Then I putted all the pieces together and decorated my card with the sequins.
I hope you enjoy it!
