Hi all. Welcome to a new week. Vera here to start your week with some inspiration from The Ton.
I am pretty excited that with the recent release, The Ton now offering quite a few basic shape dies, like circle, square and rectangle dies. With my cards today, I want to show a couple different way of using these basic dies.
Once I die cut the rectangles, I cut them in half. Put aside one of the half set. Working on the first half set, I colored each layer with Copic. I could die cut them from various color cardstock as well, but I like using white cardstock and then colored them.
Then on the card base, I arrange the layer flip flop of each other. Like the top layer with the open side (since I cut them in half) facing to the right, the second layer open side facing to the left and so on.
Next, I stamped and die cut the Outlined Leaves set. Put aside and from a piece of watercolor cardstock die cut a bunch of leaves using Leafy Bits Coverplate dies. Watercolor the pieces and let dry. Next, I simply arranged and adhere the leaves to the card. Finished by die cutting the thanks sentiment from the coming soon Many Sentiments dies. Due to manufacture delay, we were going to release this set in May, but had to postpone and I already had this card done by the time we found out. Trust me, this sentiment dies set is worth the wait.
Next, I made another card using the other half the rectangles and this time I just adhere them the way they come.
Well, there you go. I hope these cards help you to think different way to use the basic shape dies. I am definitely excited to explore more option to get more out of these dies. That’s all for me for today. I wish you a happy Monday and that your weeks starts off wonderfully. Cheers….

I am excited to share today’s card as the idea for this card been swirling in my head for a while.
For this card, I want to have a soft background and after going back and forth on several image, I decided to go with Transformation. I can honestly say this is one of my all time favorite set from the Ton.
For the word happy I partial stamped the happy birthday sentiment from Macarons set. And, of course, I have to add some mix size dew drops to finish the card.
I am very happy with the way this card turned out. It’s soft looking, totally my style. What do you think of this Layered Floral Alphas set? I for one looking forward to play more with this set and create different look simply by changing the color I used. So fun!
Well peeps, that’s all for me for today. Hope you enjoy today’s card and may your weekend starts off wonderfully. Cheers y’all!

I’d love to know in the comments – are you a planner? If yes, do you stamp in your planner?
I find that I’m 3000% more productive when I use my planner. I also find that I’m more like to use it, if the pages are PRETTY! I use a combination of stickers and planner. It’s another creative outlet for me that I really enjoy.
That is all from me today. I hope you enjoyed checking out our latest designs. Thank you for stopping by!
Next, I lined it up with the stamp’s line, stamped and heat embossed the image with white embossing powder.
Then I trimmed the card panel slightly smaller than the card base and adhere it to the card base. I have to admit, this is the rare time I used jewel tone color ink pads and papers. Usually, I am not a fan of jewel tone and was pleasantly surprised that when I was looking at which colored cardstock to use for the base, this teal colored cardstock won. I am really happy at how lovely this card turned out. Great reminder that sometimes it’s good to step out of your comfort zone. 🙂
That’s all from me today, peeps. Hope you enjoy today’s card as much as I enjoy making it. Hope your Wednesday is a good one. Cheers…
Hi peeps. Look at that. We are at the end of August. 4 months away from Christmas. So, I think it’s safe to say we can go ahead and work on our Christmas card stash. Especially when you have gorgeous set to work with.
I started by stamping the wreath off center on a piece of watercolor paper and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I went to town and watercolor the wreath. This card is my first attempt in watercolor using Tombow marker and I have to say I love the result.
Hi peeps! Happy Monday. Vera here. Can you believe it’s already the last week of August? Feel like the older I got, the faster times slipping by. Yikes…
Anyway, I am here to bring you a colorful inspiration on behalf of The Ton. Today, I am showcasing the new Sunny Folk Garden set.
To make this card, I started by stamping the butterfly outline on a piece of cardstock and then cut it out using Brother Scan-N-Cut. I used the cut out opening as my stencil. Now, on a hindsight, I should have cut it out of a piece of acetate so I can keep re-using it.
Once I am done with the coloring, I stamped the butterflies wings and heat embossed it with fine white embossing powder. Now, as you can see the color on the butterflies above looks different than on my card. That’s because after I took this picture and was working on the heat embossing part, I messed up a couple of the butterflies.
Yep, I was so irritated at myself for messing it up after I almost finished, but hey, that’s part of the process. I took a breath and told myself, just take the time to do it all over again.
So, I re-did a couple of the butterflies and by the time I finished blending the ink, they come out a bit different than my original one. I also made slight change of plan. Instead of a flat layer butterfly card, I cut out all the butterfly and adhere them to the card base with foam adhesive. And, I actually like it way better compare to if it’s been a flat one.
Finished by stamping the sentiment on strip of cardstock and again adhere to card bae with foam adhesive. Add some shimmer to the butterfly with shimmer marker.
I am pretty happy with the way this card turned out. You know, sometime you have an idea in your head and sometime it work out and sometime it doesn’t. This time, it works. Yes, I messed up along the way, but at the end it was a good messed up, because the correction ended up better than the original idea. 🙂
How about you? Do you usually continue or re-do stuff after you make a mistake or you just chuck the whole idea? I am in between. There’s time where I get so frustrated and just chuck it & completely abandon the plan. Depends on my mood & patience on that time. Hah!
Well peeps, I hope you enjoy today’s inspiration. May your week starts off wonderfully. Sending positive vibes your way! Hugs.

This set also features individual floral elements so you can customize your own arrangements making this an extremely versatile stamp set. The coordinating SVG digital cut file will be available here.
Projects by Effie. For the top right card, I heat embossed the Transformation image onto Bristol paper. Then I watercolored the image using Tombow Dual Tip markers. Then I blended our Miami Cool and Iris Blooms Dye Inks around the edges of my panel. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment with our Noir Dye Ink.
For the bottom left card, I selectively heat embossed the floral wing portion of the Transformation stamp and then watercolored the images with Tombow dual tip markers. Lastly, I embellished my card using our Gold Medallion sequins.
Projects by Effie. For this card, I stamped the floral images using our Noir Dye Ink. Then I cut and colored out the images using Tombow markers. Next I created my blended panel by blending our Soft Garnet ink using makeup brushes. For the grid background, I used our Small Grid Stencil (created from our SVG cut file) and Thermoweb’s White Pearl Metallix Gel.
Our newest floral cluster stamp is our Sweet Bouquet! This set features a large stamp that is great to color with several sentiments to create all occasion cards. The coordinating SVG digital cut file will be available here.
Our new Swatch It set features several different kinds of bold brushstrokes. Pair this set with our new Better in Red or Flawless stamp sets! Or use it alone for a more graphic result! Keep scrolling to check out how the team used this set with our new makeup themed stamps!
Our new Better in Red set features layering lipstick stamps with chic and fun sentiments! The coordinating SVG digital cut file will be available here.
With our new Better in Red set, I created some fun scrapbooking embellishments and ephemera. This set also coordinates well with our Smooched stamp set!
For the layered lipsticks, I used the following inks: Noir Dye Ink for the base, Vanilla Frosted Cupcake and Beach Blondie for the gold hardware and Plum Wine for the lipstick color.
Next up is our Autumn Sweater Stamp! This is such a fun background stamp. I designed our Christmas Sweater stamp in the past and thought I’d create a fall version. This one has squirrels in it! How fun whimsical is this?
Project by Effie. For this card, I white heat embossed the Autumn Sweater Background onto light coral cardstock and trimmed it about an eighth of an inch on each side. I set that aside and stamped the squirrel and leaf stamps (from our Oak Leaf Print set – below). For these smaller stamps, I used our Spiced Chai, Lipstick red and Found Topaz inks. Next I cut these images out and arranged them onto a circle die cut. I popped it up along with the sentiment onto my white embossed background and finalized my card with Gold Medallion Sequins.
Next up in our seasonal lineup is our Oak Leaf Print! This is the fall version of our Folk Art Christmas Tree stamp. I wanted to create a whimsical fall themed stamp based on this folk art theme. Use the large oak leaf as a focal point or use the smaller stamps to create your own fall scene! The coordinating SVG digital cut file will be available here.
I stamped this new fall themed block design using our Cocoa Collection inks and Peach Blossom, Coralline Hybrid and Coral Cavern inks. I also used the butterflies from our Sunny Folk Garden to embellish the cards.
I created an ombre effect using our Peach Blossom, Coralline and Coral Cavern inks. I used my Misti to stamp each color layer and obtain this perfect ombre result.
We have two stamp giveaways to be won for our debut days! We’ll choose one winner from today’s mini hop and one winner from tomorrow’s mini hop. Leave a comment on each blog on each mini blog hop day as we debut our new release! Winners will be announced on August 27 here on our blog.
Now that you’ve checked out Day 1 of our release, head on over to each design team member’s blogs for more details on their new release projects! Be sure to leave them some love to be entered in our giveaway.
For my 1st card, I adhere the washi tape to a piece of soft green cardstock. The beauty of washi tape, you can change its look by the base color you used. Then I die cut the wishes sentiment on the panel using Bold General Greeting Word Plate dies. Then, die cut the sweet sentiment fromSweetheart World Plate diesset. Adhere panel to the crd base.
Die cut the wishes sentiment 3 more times from white cardstock to layer the sentiment to make it stand out from the rest of the panel. Die cut sweet sentiment again from gold foil cardstock and adhere to the card. Finish by stamping, heat embossed & die cut a butterfly using Beautiful Butterflies 1 set (adhere it with foam adhesive).
Now, on to the 2nd card. I was inspired by Effie’s card during the release (you can see the post HERE)
I adhere the washi tape to a piece of cardstockand then fussy cut it. Before adhering it to the card base, I blended some Rose Quartz ink to the card base. Then I partially ink up the Mini Hearts Cling Background stamp and stamped the corner of the card for a bit of accent. Adhere the cut out, stamp the sentiment from Dearest Peony set and finished by adding some Rose Champagne Sparkle sequins mix.
Well peeps, that’s all from me today. It’s been a pretty crazy hectic week for me, so I sure am looking forward to a quiet weekend to just chill with the doggies. Hope you enjoy today’s inspiration. Have a fabulous weekend everyone! Cheerrrssss……
I want to introduce our stamp set first – our new Toned Hearts. This is our newest three step layering set to achieve a multi toned all over mini heart pattern.
The color combinations are truly endless so it makes the set really fun to stamp.
Check out these adorable toned panels!! From left to right, the panels were stamped using our layering collection inks: Amethyst, Coral, Sky Blue and Ruby.
From left to right, the panels were stamped using our layering inks: (1) Soft Garnet, Bright Emerald, Warm Hazelnut; (2) Rose Quartz, Arctic Sky, Crystal Pewter; (3) Peach Blossom, Bright Emerald, Lipstick Red.
For this card, I used a soft color palette for the background (Rose Quartz, Arctic Sky, Crystal Pewter) and then stamped the sentiments directly onto the panel with our True Navy dye ink. I created a windowed panel using our Double Stitched Circle dies. On the same rectangular panel, I added stitching to the edges with our Double Stitched Rectangle dies. Lastly, I embellished the card using Gold Medallion sequins.
For my final card, I kept this clean and simple! I heat embossed our Bokeh Burst Heart stamp. Then I die cut the negative space inside the heart. With that die cut, I blended Lipstick Red dye ink at the bottom of the heart for an ombre effect. I pieced the embossed panel together with the negative heart die cut onto an A2 card panel. Then I stamped the sending sentiment (from Toned Hearts) and die cut the kisses and adhered it onto my card.
