You’re Amazing

Hello everyone!! Brenda, here with you on this Friday morning!! I sure wish the weather here would decide what it wants to do!! It’s been crazy!! 70 degrees one day, then 30 the next. Enough already!!

It was a rainy, dreary day & I decided I needed some bright florals to brighten it up. Usually when I use layering stamps, I use the same color family of inks. I decided to try something different and I love the outcome.

You're-Amazing-1

What do you think? So vibrant!! First, I used the largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle Die (Large) to cut a white cardstock panel. I layered up the Large Florals: Daisy with Lemon Drop, Coralline and Red Sangria for the petals. For the center of the flowers, I used Lemon Drop & Bright FernSoft Garden & Bright Fern were used to stamp the leaves. The sentiment is from the Bold Amazing Greeting Word Plate Dies. These dies are amazing!! There’s no lining up the letters…they’re already lined up for you!! I popped the entire front panel onto dimensional adhesive and used a combination of Belle’s Dress, Frosted Spearmint, Deck the Halls, Glass Slippers Sequins and Glass Slippers Round Confetti Mix to create the shaker.

For my second card, I wanted to work with the Peony Bouquet set again. I used the bouquet once on a card, but I didn’t get to use the beautiful vase or the coordinating dies.

HB-Peony-Bouquet-1

I started off by heat embossing the flowers from the Peony Bouquet set with The Ton’s exclusive Rose Gold Embossing Powder. I embossed the vase with white embossing powder. I think this is the first time I have used two different embossing powders on the same project, but I really like it!! I colored both images with Zig Clean Color Markers, then cut with the Peony Bouquet Coordinating Dies. The background panel was watercolored with some glitter liquid watercolors. I used the Buildable Woodgrain set, stamped with Crystal Pewter & Smoky Quartz Inks, to create a table top for my floral arrangement. Tha vase is adhered flat to the panel, while the floral bouquet is popped up with dimensional adhesive. The sentiment is from the Most Interesting Card Maker 2.0, and was also embossed in rose gold and cut into a narrow banner. A combination of sequins from the Guava Sparkle & Pink Bokeh Couture Mixes finished off the card.

Tons of XOXOs

Hello everyone! It’s LauraJane, with many, ahem…TONS, of XOXO cards today:)) I wanted to share how versatile the XOXO mini stamp set and coordinating die is. They aren’t just for Valentine’s day after all!  Hugs and kisses can be sent throughout the year

Warning: photo heavy post. 

Here is the stash of items I’ll be using for all the cards in this post:TT-WIP-Feb22-LauraJane

To begin making these cards I stamped the XOXO mini stamp set  with Valentine Red couture color ink. And cut each one out with the coordinating die.Then continued to cut a few xoxos out of almost white CS, for stacking up purposes.

Going with a similar color palette, I searched/found several cardfronts that I liked in my drawer of,”could be used for later” ..there are TONS of them:)) as I don’t like to toss anything in the trash bin!

 I’ll share each card individually and supplies used for each one.

For the first card, I DID stamp the Happy Valentine’s Day sentiment on the banner, however, Thinking of you, or any other tagline could be stamped in its place.TT-Feb22-xoxo1-LauraJane

Think Happy Thoughts

Hello, crafty friends! It’s Jenny here today to share a couple of happy cards using our new dies! I’m featuring our new beautiful Best Day Ever Floral Coverplate Die for the first card, and the Layered Wave Standalone Dies for the 2nd card. I’ve been hearing gloomy news lately, and wanted to create some happy cards to cheer me up! Hope these cards would cheer you up too! 🙂

Here’s the first card! I just LOVE this Best Day Ever Floral Coverplate Die! So easy to make a beautiful card with awesome cheerful message!

Ton_BestCoverplate_FE1

 

I started off by die cutting a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock using the largest layer of the Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies first and our new Best Day Ever Floral Coverplate die. Then, I ink blended the panel with Iris Bloom Dye, Coralline Hybrid, Bright Fern Dye, Soft Garden Dye, Valentine Red Dye, Caribbean Turquoise Dye, and Amber Citrine Dye ink to create happy rainbow colors.

Ton_BestCoverplate_CE2

Next, I adhered a panel of vellum on a black A2 card base to create a subtle background and adhered the die cut on top. I stamped and a sentiment from Coming Up Daisies stamp set on a black cardstock in Versamark ink and heat embossed in white. I cut it down to a thin banner and popped it up on the card. I added some highlights with white gel pen and finished the card by adding some Silver Holographic sequins.

Here’s the 2nd card! How cool is this Layered Wave Standalone Die?!!

Ton_CoverplateWaves_FE1

To start off, I created the background by ink blending Bright Emerald Dye ink for the ocean and Amber Citrine Dye ink for the sun. I added a bit of interest with the largest die from the Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. Then, I die cut the waves layers with Bristol Smooth Cardstock, Silver Adhesive Glitter Paper, vellum, and and blue cardstock and adhered them on the card. I ink blended one of the layer with Bright Emerald Dye and Azurite Dye ink.

I stamped the sentiment from Get It Girl Stamp set in Noir Dye ink and finished the card by adding the Summer Skies Couture Mix and Clear Rhinestones.

Spring Daisies

Hello there!! Brenda, here with you today sharing some spring daisies to brighten your Friday!!!

Thinking-of-You-CP-1

I began by placing the Coming Up Daisies stamp (one of my faves!!!) into my MISTI stamping tool. I colored directly onto the stamp with several colors of Tombow markers, then spritzed with a mini mister, before stamping it onto Bristol cardstock. Using the MISTI, I was able to go back in to add more marker in areas that needed more color with perfect alignment every time. A damp paintbrush was used to “pull” some of the color into the daisies & leaves, for a “messy” watercolor look. I colored the markers onto my craft mat, diluted with some water, then splattered onto my stamped images. I set the panel aside to dry and started to work on the background. The largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large) was used to cut a panel from Bristol paper, as I wanted my white papers to match. Next, I used the Geometric Lattice Cover Plate Die to cut the intricate design from the background panel and adhered it to a panel of light gray cardstock. This die creates so much interest in the background…I know I will be using it a ton!!! Once my watercolored panel was completely dry, I used the Coming Up Daisies Coordinating Die to cut the daisies, before adhering it to the background panel with dimensional adhesive. The sentiment is also from Coming Up Daisies; it was white heat embossed onto a strip of black cardstock and popped up with foam adhesive. Some Clear Wink of Stella and a sprinkling of Glass Slippers Round Confetti Mix (another of my faves!!!) added a little bling!!!

Thinking-of-You-CP-2Thinking-of-You-CP-3

My second card today used the same technique…

Conngratulations-CP-1

This time I used the stunning Daisy Duet and Daisy Duet Coordinating Dies. Everything else was the same.

Conngratulations-CP-2

Conngratulations-CP-3

I really enjoyed this technique and can’t wait to try it with other outline stamps. It is definitely a different look for me, as I usually color in outline images.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!!

For the Love

Hello Everyone! Anna here with three cards I made using The Ton 3rd Anniversary Release stamp sets.

I made my first card especially for Valentine’s Day.

SONY DSC

At first I made a card panel using XOXO Die. To create background I stamped images from XOXO Mini Set using Couture Color – Noir Dye and Couture Color – Smoky Quartz Dye. Then I stamped seven images from Smooched stamp set with Couture Color – Hollywood Star Dye, Couture Color – Red Sangria Hybrid, Couture Color – Lipstick Red Dye and cut them out with Smooched Coordinating Dies.

SONY DSC

The card panel was adhered to the card base and added the lips to the card. The sentiment from Smooched was stamped on a strip of a grey cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed using Metallic Platinum Embossing Glitter.

The second card is shaker card.

SONY DSC

To create this card I made the card panel using grey cardstock at first. I cut out a shaker window using Geometric Circles Coverplate Die (Partial Die-Cutting Technique), then I used an oval frame die from Modern Labels Coordinating Dies (Dry Embossing with Die Cuts). Then I white heat embossed Delicate Polka Dots on it. I added sequins from Coral Necklace Couture Mix into the shaker and assembled the shaker elements together.

SONY DSC

Next I stamped beautiful daisies from Fresh Cut Daisies using Couture Color – Vanilla Frosted Cupcake Dye, Couture Color – Peach Blossom Dye, Couture Color – Spiced Chai Dye. The leaves were stamped with Couture Color – Soft Garden Dye and Couture Color – Bright Fern Dye. I cut out all images using Fresh Cut Daisies Coordinating Dies and adhered them to my card. The sentiment from Smooched was stamped on a strip of a black cardstock with Versamark Ink and white heat embossed.

And this is my third card for today.

SONY DSC

I stamped background image from Timeless Peonies Print on Masking Paper and fussy cut flowers images. I covered my A2 size card base with all pieces of masking paper and removed the “background” pieces of masking paper. Then I stamped the elements of the Buildable Woodgrain stamp set with Couture Color – Warm Hazelnut Dye, Couture Color – Found Topaz Dye and Couture Color – Dark Roast Dye. Then I removed the “flowers” pieces of masking paper and stamped awesome Peonies from Timeless Peonies Print using these inks: Couture Color – Red Sangria Hybrid, Couture Color – Valentine Red Dye, Couture Color – Spiced Chai Dye, Couture Color – Deep Emerald Dye and Couture Color – Everglade Moss Dye.

SONY DSC

Next, I stamped sentiment from Large Florals: Daisy on a stripe of kraft cardstock in Noir and added some Dew Drops to finish off the card.

Timeless Peonies Print

Hi peeps! How’s thing going? Vera here. Today I want to share a couple cards that I made using Timeless Peonies Print set. I was actually going to share a different card, but I came down with pretty bad migraine that totally incapacitate me and I couldn’t finish the card on time.

So, I am sharing this pretty duo.

IMG_1974
I just love the versatility of this set. In my opinion this is such a modern set. I always love the look of solid color background against pretty flowers. I first stamped the solid background part and then do the layered stamping. For the bouquet in the middle, I stamped and die cut it using the matching Timeless Peonies Print dies and adhere with pop dots so it stands out. Then finished by stamping one of my favorite sentiment design from Occasion Confetti.

I couldn’t stop at just one card as I want to try different color combination and this time I turn the design around to make vertical card.

IMG_2047
Repeating the same steps but using different color ink. And for the sentiment I used the sentiment from Basic Label set and finished with some sequins from Lilac Blossoms Couture Mix.

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. I hope you enjoy these 2 beauties. I’ll be sharing my finished card using a couple dies from the latest release soon. Thank you for stopping by here and have a beautiful Tuesday. Cheers….

New Coverplate Dies

Hello everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with three cards featuring our new Coverplate dies form February Flash Release.  In the first two cards I used Geometric Circles coverplate die cut as my backdrop for a tulip bouquet arranged using Loose Tulips and a Large Florals Daisy. The last card is showcasing Best Day Ever Floral Coverplate die.

Here is my first card.

TT0212 1 5 WM

To start off I did some no line watercoloring on the Loose Tulips using Color Burst and cut them all out with Coordinating dies. Set them aside, I started making the background panel.  It was made using a kind of “smooshing” technique. I applied silver and peony pink Nuvo embellishment mousse on a acetate sheet, sprayed water on it and “smooshed”the colors on some mixed media paper. I then covered the paper with a scrunched cling wrap and let it dry. After it was dry I blended some pink inks on the left part of the panel. The Geometric Circles coverplate was cut from a silver glitter cardstock I made using Glossy Fine Silver Adhesive Glitter Paper. I cut the Geometric Circles two more times from some white cardstock and stack them all together. I glued the background panel on a top folding white cardbase, mounted  Geometric Circles on it and arranged the tulips as I wanted, some glued flat, some raised using foam adhesives. I borrowed the sentiment from Coming Up Daisies.  I silver heat embossed it in a curved line on a white banner and added pink ink blending on the edges.

TT0212 1 CU2 WM

I used the silver glitter cut out pieces left from the first card for my second card.

TT0212 3 3 WM

First I cut a Geometric Circles from a white cardstock and inlaid the silver glitter cut out pieces into it. I heat embossed another Geometric Circles in Rose Gold and mounted it slightly off set on the silver panel. The second and the third layer of  Large Florals Daisy were stamped in Peach Blossom and Coralline Hybrid ink respectively and colored with Zig brush markers. The flower center was stamped in Beach blondie, Amber Citrine and Lemon Drop. The leaves were stamped in Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz. I then cut the images using coordinating dies and arranged them onto the card as shown in the picture. I heat embossed the sentiment from Large Florals Daisy in Rose Gold on a vellum banner and glued it onto the card. To embellish my card I added a few rose gold  flower sequins from Spring Fawn Couture Mix. I added a layer of clear glitter on the leaves but it’s hard to see here :).

TT0212 3 CU1 WM

With Best Day Ever Floral Coverplate die you can create a beautiful card so easily and quick.

TT0212 2 2 new WM

I cut Best Day Ever Floral Coverplate once from some watercolor paper and two more times from white cardstock and stack them together. I watercolored the front die cut panel and covered the sentiment with a layer of clear glitter. The background panel was created in the same way like the first card. I glued it on a top folding cardbase and mounted the colored die cut piece. To finish off I added some pretty sequins from Raspberry Sparkle and Pink Bokeh Couture Mix.

Daisies & Magnolias

Hi there lovely peeps. How’s it going? Vera here today to bring you some fun projects.

I am loving the sets from the recent release that I have made several projects for today. First up is a card using the fun & beautiful Fresh Cut Daisies, Fresh Cut Daisies Outline along with its matching dies.

IMG_2140

To make this card, I start by stamping the mason jar and colored it with Copic. Then mask it and using Buildable Woodgrain set, stamp the woodgrain border  to ground the centerpiece. I have to say this is such a neat set & give real looking woodgrain look.

Next, I work on the flowers, the leaves and the burlap cover for the jar. After I stamped and die cut all the elements and before I adhere them to the card, I stamped a couple daisies from Fresh Cut Daisies Outline directly on the card panel in soft ink color as I just want to have a little background without being overwhelming or too busy.

IMG_2142
Then I adhere & layer all the other element with pop dots to create depth. Finish by adding some Mint Sugar Couture Mix.

These daisies get me in the mood to play with flowers, so for my next card I combine old & new. For the background of the card, I used the new Polka Dot Cling Background and for the flower I reached for this gorgeous Magnificent Magnolias set from previous release.

IMG_2144
I stamp & heat emboss the the polka dot background and then stamp the magnolia on a piece of watercolor cardstock and die cut it using the coordinating Magnificent Magnolias Dies and color them with Zig Kuretake Clean Color (available under The Ton Boutique).
IMG_2146

These cards make me think of spring. Sigh… I love spring season and eagerly waiting for it. I hope you enjoy today’s cards. That’s all from me for now. May your Friday be a fun one. Cheers….
