Wildflowers Washi Tape

Hi peeps! Yay for Friday. Vera here to bring some more washi tape inspiration. What can I say, I just love playing with them. Who doesn’t love playing with pretty things, right?

Today I am showcasing Wildflowers washi tape.

IMG2842
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 diesThen, die cut the sweet sentiment from Sweetheart World Plate dies set. 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)

IMG2843
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……

Flash Release: Sweetheart Collection

Hello and welcome back! Today, we have three new products for our new flash release! Be sure to scroll all the way down for our Flash Release Promotion. Our new flash release items are available for purchase and will begin shipping immediately.

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.

Toned Hearts, 6×8 Photopolymer Set

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.

Our next flash release product is our Sweetheart Word Dies.

Sweetheart Word Dies

Our newest wordplate die collections features several new words in a bold and scripty font collection.

For this card, I used a soft color palette (Rose Quartz, Arctic Sky, Crystal Pewter) to stamp our Toned Hearts. I used the different word dies in our new Sweetheart Word Dies collection for the sentiment and embellished my card using our Medallion Gold Sequins.

Love and Hugs Word Dies

Last but not least is our new Love and Hugs Word dies!


Next I used a bright color palette for our Toned Hearts (Soft Garnet, Bright Emerald, Warm Hazelnut) and used our new Love and Hugs word dies cut out from black and white cardstock for the bold sentiment. Lastly, I embellished my card using Glossy Black 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.

Our new flash release products are great for Valentine’s Day cards and also for year round occasions for your friends and loved ones. All new flash release products are available for purchase now and are ready to ship!

  6. Brenda Noelke
  7. Ilina Crouse
  8. Mayline Jung

For today, I have two cards!

Photo taken against our White Paint Backdrop Board

For my first card, I used our Coming Up Peonies and did a little bit of watercoloring with Ken Oliver Color Bursts.

I started off by white heat embossing this beautiful large peony cluster image from our Coming Up Peonies onto watercolor paper. Once embossed, I did a little bit of loose, wet in wet watercoloring. I started off by applying clean water to the largest peony petals.

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

Then I dropped in bits of Peony Color Bursts and then some Marigold Color Bursts for a two toned look. I used the same pigments for the peony buds. Once the warm colors were down, I used Lime Color Bursts for the stems and leaves. I made sure to watercolor a little bit outside the embossed lines to give it a more artsy effect.

Once I finished painting, I trimmed my panel into a size that’s slightly smaller than A2. Next I stamped the Good Luck sentiment with Caviar Hybrid ink and then added some Clear Rhinestones to finish my card.

I love the amount of white space of the panel against the bright color bursts!

For my next project, I used our Special Day Lanterns.

This is more of a multi step stamp set and the results are really pretty! In the end, you have a multi toned chic lantern with floral elements and a candle.

I started off stamping the lantern frames. The frames should be stamped in three parts. Once the frames were stamped in our Found Topaz and Aspen Cocoa inks, I stamped the leaves of the florals cluster in Bright Emerald and Ocean Teal Dye Ink. Then there are two 2-step floral clusters consisting of four stamps in total. For the larger cluster, I used a combination of Soft Garnet and Red Sangria. For the smaller cluster, I used Amber Citrine and Coralline inks.

Once the frame of my lantern and floral clusters were stamped, I went ahead and stamped the candle. I used our Crystal Pewter first. Then I used the rock and roll technique to partially ink up the right side of the same candle stamp. I then stamped the candle again giving the image a bit of shading. Then I stamped the flame in Amber Citrine and the two step rope stamps in Warm Hazelnut and Found Topaz inks.

Couture Color Inks

I used the same inks for the two smaller lanterns in my card.

Once my lanterns were complete, I stamped my sentiment with our Aspen Cocoa Ink and finished my card by adding some Bermuda Blue sequins.

Photo taken against our White Marble Backdrop Board

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!

Now that you’ve seen the fabulous lineup, let’s move on to my projects for today!

Photo taken against our White Paint Backdrop Board

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.

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

**We’re also issuing DOUBLE REWARDS POINTS for all purchases made from January 4 to January 7, 2019 at 7pm EST. 

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!

Photo taken against our White Paint Backdrop Board

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).

#2: Power Pumps, 6×8 Photopolymer Set 

power pumps 6x8 clear wm
Power Pumps, 6×8 Photopolymer Set

We’re going back to our roots with our new Power Pumps set! One of the reasons why I started The Ton was because I couldn’t find any fashion themed stamps that I liked so I decided to design my own. Our past shoe designs featured solid or outline image shoe stamps. This is our first layered shoe stamp and I’m in love! 

This set features two types of shoe images: a pair of rear facing pumps and then one 3/4 view high heeled pump. Coordinating dies are available here

This set includes the following sentiments:

  • Life is short. Your heels shouldn’t have to be. – Brian Atwood
  • Good shoes. Good friends. Good life. 
  • Hey, gorgeous. 
  • Put on your power pumps and get it, girl. 
  • Thank you
  • Happy birthday
  • Hello, fabulous
  • Congratulations

For our next digital file, we have our Holiday Ornaments Printable files. You have the option of foiling the ornaments with Page 1 or die cutting and using the colored images as embellishments with Page 2. This is a great product to stretch those dies! This is essentially an add on to our Holiday Ornaments set and dies. These digital ornaments can be cut using the coordinating dies.

Anna created a colorful wonderland of ornaments backed with our 2-piece Foliage Coverplate!

Next up is my card! I foiled my ornament with red foil and then I cut the branches on my cricut machine. I also white heat embossed our new Glass Windows background stamp to offset the drama of the red foil. Then I created a small cluster of Pine Branches. I adhered the cluster to my ornament and then adhered the ornament to my background panel.

Christmas Tree Printables

Our next digital file is a similar add on product. Our new Christmas Tree Printables share the same template as our Christmas Tree stamp set. So these  images can be cut using the coordinating die when printed at 80% scale (instructions are included with the downloadable file). This printable product features three pages of images that you can foil and/or die cut.

tree printable gift tags

Our Christmas Tree printables features three different colors of each tree so I made three gifts tags for the gift specific trees.

Next, I started assembling my additional tree printables. I originally assembled most of these Snowflakes coverplates during our Fall 2018 release. I decided to use them for this release to back up my printable tree. Lastly, I added a bow or pom pom embellishment. This was a great way to mass produce the christmas cards!

Christmas Lights WM

Next up is our Christmas Lights Printable background image. This bundle features two PNG files. Print at 60% scale to print these out in 6×6 inch format.

Leaf SVG Bundle WM

Next up is our layered Leaf SVG Cut File bundle! This single file features 16 images. There are 8 solid leaves and coordinating outline cut file images.

Vintage Merry Christmas WM

Next, we have our Vintage Merry Christmas SVG cut file. This is a beautiful and classic style sentiment that can be use on your next holiday card!

vintage MC and trees

For the top card, I blended some Cobalt Breeze Dye Ink at the top of my panel. Then I layered on my Pine Tree silhouette cuts. For the layer in the background, I added some snow with a snowmaker. Lastly, I layered my red sentiment over a white one to give it more interest against the greenery.

Snow Globe Digital Bundle WM

Next we have our new Snow Globe SVG and PDF bundle which features cut files and coordinating printables for sentiments.  This bundle comes with three SVG files. The first file features the individual snow globe elements for both the dome and globe shaped snow globes. The second and third SVG files feature the globe cut directly into an A2 or 5×7 inch panel. Thus, these files cut the globe portion of the project as well as the panel. The third PDF file contains two pages of printables that coordinating with the round snow globe.

Anna created a sweet woodland scene using our new dome Snow Globe cut file, Pine Silhouette and Deer SVG cut files. She also created a beautiful, subtle background using our Crystal Flurries stamps.

For my next trio of card, I used a combination of the Snow Globe, Pine Tree Silhouette and Deer SVG cut files. For my deer head card, I also used our new Modern Plaid stamp.

Pine Branches SVG WM

For our next digital product, we have our new Pine Branch SVG cut file which features two images that create perfect clusters to give off those holiday vibes in your projects this year.

Olga created a beautiful and full wreath using our Pine Branch SVG!pine branch

For my next card, I clustered up some of our Pine Branch cuts making sure to include one white and one kraft branch into the cluster. This added subtle fullness to my cluster which I greatly appreciated once I finished my card. pine branch2

Mittens Buidlable Bundle

Next we have our Buildable Mittens SVG cut file! This file features a three step layering mitten pair. Experiment with different colored cardstock for festive creations!

Olga created a funky and cool pattern on our buildable Mittens! She also used our versatile Christmas Sweater stamp in the background to match these bright mittens!

For my next pair of cards, I paired our new bundle cut file with some of our new background stamps (Bare Tones and Confetti Party). Additionally, I used our Haute Stripes, Basic Banners and Cozy Poinsettias to create the rest of the cards. Screen Shot 2018-11-19 at 6.40.29 AM

Mitten Cardbase wm

Lastly, we have our Mitten Cardbase! Create adorable cards using this new cardbase cut file.

mitten base

For my last few cards, I created a set of cute Mitten cards using the base cut file. After cutting them in different colored cardstock, I stamped the front of my cards using a variety of background stamps (Christmas Sweater, Delicate Dots, Haute Stripes and Confetti Party). Then I adhered the cuff. Next I stamped multiple bows from our Holiday and Grand Bows. Lastly, I stamped or embossed my sentiments on the inside or outside of my card.

mitten base3mitten base tags

Since these are SVGs, you can manipulate the size of the image. So I created some gift tags with smaller Mitten Bases that I cut out. For these smaller tags, I used our Modern Plaid, Bare Tones and Diagonal Stripes.

That’s all for today!! I hope you enjoyed our new release. I certainly did! I had a lot of fun with these new designs. Head over to Anna and Olga’s blog to check out more details on how they made each gorgeous project.

Thanks for stopping by! Do let us know in the comments if you use digital files or not. We’re curious!

Have a wonderful day!

Sending Gardenia Love & Hugs

Hi everyone. Vera here today bringing you a floral inspiration on behalf of The Ton.

I am so in love with the beautiful Gardenia Wishes set and for today card I want to share how I used this set to fill a whole card front.

IMG2755
To start I stamped the image on top left corner and bottom right corner of the panel. Colored with Copic markers. Once that done, I die cut the word love and hugs from Peony Laurel dies set directly on the panel.

 

IMG2754

I want to make the word popped up a bit, so I die cut the words three more times to create a thick layers.

Now, if you see my panel above, you see I didn’t color the area in between the flowers. Well, after I adhere the panel to the card base, I was adding some shading around the flower and ended up coloring the whole area with super soft green (G0000 in case you’re wondering and G00).

To finish, I stamped the word “SENDING” & “AND” and also added some mixed size dew drops.

Well, I hope you enjoy today’s inspiration. I am scheduling this post in advance as on this date I am scheduled to be in Singapore and seeing my niece for the first time since she was diagnosed with leukemia. Thank God that she’s been responding well to the chemo, but I personally been struggling with the feeling of helplessness of not being able to  be with my family during this time.

So, this short trip means a lot to me. Just to be able to hug her, hug my mom and my brothers. I’ll be back on the States in a few days and sure appreciate any prayers you could send to my niece & for safe trip back for me & hubby. 🙂

That’s all from me today. May your mid week be a wonderful one. Cheers….
