Monochromatic floral cards

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of floral cards. Yes, let’s take a break from Christmas cards :)!

I used Fresh Cut Carnations and Large Florals: Carnation set from our Fall 2017 Release. I kept the cards in a monochromatic style in blue and purple respectively by making the background in the same tone like the flowers.

Let’s start with the blue version!

I stamped the layered carnations from Fresh Cut Carnations in Cobalt breeze and Deep Sapphire. I skipped the first layer to brighten the image. I stamped the stem in gray using Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz and cut all the images out with coordinating dies. I then created the watercolor background panel by adding blue paint loosely on a wet watercolor paper. I added blue and white splatters on it and let it dry. The panel was cut with the largest Double Stitched Rectangle die and glued on a white cardbase. To white emboss the sentiment from Magnificent Magnolias I blended Cobalt breeze and Deep Sapphire on a strip of white cardstock. I matted the sentiment strip with some Silver glitter adhesive paper and foam mounted the sentiment and flowers onto the card along with some silver thread. To finish off the card I used some sequins from Milky Way and Midnight Frost Couture Mix.

For my second card I used Large Florals: Carnation set.  To stamp the large carnation I used Iris Blooms and Grape Crush dye ink. Here also I skipped the first layer. I cut the flower with the coordinating die and set it aside.

To create the background panel I die loose watercolor wash on some watercolor paper in purple and light blue. I then stamped the second layer of the leave image on it in Iris Blooms . And I added some leaves from Large Peony set 1 and 3 in Soft Amethyst. I then splattered purple and opaque white watercolor on it and let it dry. I foam mounted the flower on a nest made with some silver thread. The sentiment is from Large Florals: Carnation as well. I made a ombre purple strip by blending Iris Blooms and Grape Crush and white heat embossed the sentiment. For some sparkle I added a thin line of purple glitter tape and mounted the sentiment strip onto the card. My finishing touch was some clear Dew Drops.

Hi! Olga today with you! And I decided to get distracted from Holidays cards and to remember about summer!


I used Wave Stamps for my card. I stamped the wave on the cardstock using Cali Blue Dye for first layer, Parisian Blue for next layer and Deep Sapphire for last layer.

I stamped the wave again on another sheet of cardstock and applied Coordinating Die. I embossed the edge of a paper with  White Embossing Powder repeatedly.


I blending the sky with True Navy and Miami Cool Dyes.


I stamped the inscription from the Country Rose Cluster stamps set and embossed with  White Embossing Powder.

I decorated the card with Blue Ice Couture Mix . It turned out a remix of my card made earlier, but I’m ready to apply these waves again and again)))

One Shiny Ornament

Hello friends, Lisa here.  I hope you’re all doing well at this most wonderful time of the year.  Do you have your holiday cards finished yet?  As you can see, I’m still working on mine so I’m a little late getting them in the mail this year.   I thought I’d pop in to The Ton blog today with this card I made for  a dear friend of mine.  I was trying to achieve a simple retro feel by using traditional colors and the largest ornament from The Ton’s gorgeous Holiday Ornaments stamps.

Christmas 2017 006ADJ copy.jpgSMALL

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

Christmas 2017 009ADJ copy.jpgSMALL

After stamping and coloring the background using Holiday Cones Coordinating Outline stamps, I watered down some Gesso medium and flicked it across the panel.  This created some wonderful textured snow.  I stamped and clear embossed this large round ornament from the Holiday Ornaments stamp set.  There is so much fabulous detail in this ornament and the shiny clear coat of embossing powder really makes it pop!   The Holiday Word dies lend a lot to the retro feel of this card and the holly and berries from the Christmas Wreath Builder set is the perfect sized embellishment for the ornament.

2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop



Hi everyone!!! It’s Brenda here again (two days in a row!) with a very special post. We are so excited to join the super fun 2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  The Ton is proud to be a super sponsor for this hop. You can link up your newly created coffee, tea, and/or cocoa projects with Fall theme for a chance to win many prizes, including a $25 gift certificate to The Ton!

This hop runs from Friday, December 8 – Friday, December 15. Winners will be announced on Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog on Sunday, December 17. See all the details HERE.

When I think of winter in the Midwest, my mind immediately goes to sparkly silver and icy blue tones.


Beginning with the background, I pulled out the beautiful Holiday Love Poinsettia set and got to work. I stamped the poinsettia image four times onto Bristol paper with Versamark, then heat embossed with silver embossing powder. I colored this with Zigs and a water brush, then added silver stickles to the center of each poinsettia. The Double Stitched Rectangle Die (Large) was used to cut the background panel down a bit. For the focal image, I used the Tea Party set and stamped the tea cup with Caviar Ink. I created a mask by stamping onto a full adhesive post-it note and used the outer portion to mask off the outside of the cup. This allowed me to stamp the poinsettia image from the Good Tidings Cluster onto the cup, also using Caviar Ink. The cup was then colored with Copic markers to match the background panel. The saucer was stamped with Blue Diamond dye ink. Both the cup and the saucer were die-cut with the Tea Party Coordinating Die, as was the heart of steam from silver glitter paper. I heat embossed the sentiment from Cozy Poinsettias with silver embossing powder onto a strip of vellum. The card was assembled as shown, popping up the cup and steam with foam adhesive. I also added silver stickles to the center on the poinsettia on the cup. Glass Slipper Round Confetti Couture Mix (one of my go-to mixes), was the perfect touch to frame the sentiment.



Thanks for stopping by today!! Grab a cup of your favorite warm beverage and hop on over to the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!! So much inspiration and lots of prizes up for grabs!!!

December’s Challenge on The Ton’s Challenge Blog is happening now!! We have a beautiful mood board this month!! Come play along for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to The Ton’s Shop!!!


Happy hopping!!!


Pink Florals

Happy Thursday everyone!! Brenda here with you today. I am in the middle of trying to get all of my Christmas cards ready to mail, but I needed to take a break from the holiday hustle!! I was missing my beloved pink flowers!! So, I pulled out a couple of sets that haven’t gotten enough love from me yet!! Let’s take a look!!


I started off by creating my background using alcohol inks and Yupo paper. I love the unpredictability of alcohol inks, but it is also difficult to “let go” and try not to control them too much!! I stamped the Magnificent Magnolia (it really IS magnificent, isn’t it?), onto white cardstock with distress ink, as I intended to use the no-line coloring technique. I used Copic markers and added details with colored pencils, before using the Magnificent Magnolia Coordinating Die to cut out the image. The alcohol inked background was cut in two pieces to create some interest in the background. I added Silver Glitter Tape to the top, bottom & cut portions of the card, adhering the alcohol panel over it. The Thank You Word Die was cut from Silver Glitter Paper and pink cardstock. I adhered the dies together, slightly offsetting the words to create a drop shadow, then adhered them to the bottom of the card. The magnolia die was adhered with foam dimensional adhesive. A few sequins from the Pink Diamond Couture Mix finished off the card perfectly!!



Here is the second card…


For this card, I used the same technique on the background panel with Yupo paper and alcohol inks. Once it was dry, I used the largest die from the Double Stitched Rectangle Die (Large) to cut the background. Next, I pulled out my Fresh Cut Carnation Coordinating Dies and cut the flowers from pink cardstock, and the stems from green cardstock. Then I stamped the top two layers of flowers from the Fresh Cut Carnation set with Rose Quartz and Hollywood Star dye inks. I omitted the solid layer of the stamp, eliminating the edge around the outside of the die cut. The leaves were cut with the Fresh Cut Anemone Coordinating Die and stamped with the leaf images from the Fresh Cut Anemone stamp set with Soft Garden Dye Ink. The vase from Tulip Bouquet was heat embossed onto polka-dot vellum, then fussy cut. The sentiment is from Penned Sentiments and was stamped with Noir Ink and clear heat embossed. All the die cuts were adhered as shown, popping the largest flower and leaves up with foam adhesive. The vellum sentiment was wrapped around the background panel, before adhering to the card base. A scattering of sequins from the Waltz White Couture Mix was the finishing touch!! I am always amazed how well the elements from all the sets mix-and-match so well together!!!



Don’t forget…there is a new challenge over at The Ton’s Challenge Blog!! Here is the beautiful mood board for December!! Play along for your chance to win a $50 gift code to The Ton’s Store!!!


Thanks so much for spending a part of your day with me!! Do you find a need to take a break from holiday cards as well?


From Our Family To Yours

Hi peeps! Vera here. How are you doing? How’s your December going so far?

I finally have our Christmas tree up and I finish decorating our office Christmas tree as well. Yay… So, since I am all in Christmas spirit, of course I have to go with Christmas card for today’s post.


For this card, I used the lovely Poinsettia Banner set. The beauty of this set is you can just stamp it and color it and that’s it you’re done. But, the way you color it can totally change the feeling of the card. As quite often happened, I end up with soft coloring.

Non traditional Christmas color, but I just couldn’t resist to go with this soft color combo. I love the way this card turned out. I color this with Copic and for the center of the poinsettia I used Nuvo Drop in Sugared Almond. Finished by adding sequins from Frosted Spearmint Couture Mix.

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. Hope you enjoy the card. And, psst… since we’re talking about Christmas card, have you seen The Ton current mood board challenge? Here’s a look at the mood board. You can play along and join the challenge HERE.

That’s all from me today peeps. May our day be a fantastic one. Cheers…

Happy Holidays – Fireplace

Hello, everyone! Hope you are all doing well! Jenny here today, and I would like to share couple of holiday cards fairly easy to make. I used the Scenes: Fireplace Cling Stamp for the background and added various images from our City Girls: Snow Day stamp set, Fireplace Holiday Accessories Stamp set, and Fireplace Accessories to create warm holiday scenes.

Here’s the first card!


I started off by stamping images from the City Girls: Snow Day stamp set and the Fireplace Holiday Accessories stamp set on smooth white cardstock in our Copic-friendly Caviar Hybrid ink. I colored the images with various Copic markers and die cut them out using the Snow Day Coordinating Dies and the Fireplace Holiday Accessories Dies. I also stamped the Garland image in our Bright Fern Dye ink and die cut it out.

Next, I stamped the Scenes: Fireplace Cling stamp on a smooth white cardstock in our Smoky Quartz Dye ink, added Ballet Slippers Dye and Hollywood Star Dye ink toward the edges, and die cut using the largest layer from the Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. I also stamped the sentiment in Noir Dye ink. I glued the background panel on a white A2 cardbase and adhered the rest of the elements on the card. I finished the card by adding some Glass Slippers sequins and Deck the Halls Couture mix.




Here’s the 2nd card!


I really love this scene where the family pets soundly sleeping together by the fireplace. It totally warms up my heart! I created this card the same way as I did the first one, but I used images from Fireplace Accessories stamp set with its Coordinating Dies and the Fireplace Holiday Accessories stamp set (and the Coordinating Dies) for this card. For the background, I ink blended Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Beach Blondie, and Caribbean Turquoise Dye inks. The sentiment is from Good Tidings Cluster Stamp set, stamped in Noir Dye ink. I dressed up the card with Glass Slippers sequins and Deck The Halls Couture Mix.




Don’t forget to stop by The Ton challenge blog. We have a new monthly challenge and this month’s theme is Holiday.


One winner will get $50 gift certificate to The Ton’s Shop! *Gift certificates only apply to The Ton stamps, dies, ink, gilding and embossing powder.


That’s all from me today! Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting!



CAS Christmas Cards

Hello everyone! It’s TaeEun here! Hope you are having a great week so far! I have seven Christmas cards to share with you today! Actually they are in a single design :). The main panel of today’s cards is featuring one of our new stamps from November Release, Folk Art Christmas Tree. But I didn’t use this stamp as a Christmas tree. I wanted to embellish my panel with the upper part of the tree which is beautifully decorated. I added three different focal elements onto the cards using Holiday Ornaments, Holly Branch, Holiday Bows and Christmas Wreath Builder.

These are the first set of three cards showing the circle Holiday Ornament as focal element.

TheTon1129 set1 2WM

TheTon1129 set1 3 3WM

To make this card I white heat embossed the Folk Art Christmas Tree on a light beige cardstock twice as shown in the picture. I narrowed down the panel and adhered it on a white cardbase on both sides of which I added Thin strips of transparent adhesive Glitter Paper. The circle ornament from Holiday Ornaments was gold heat embossed and fussy cut. I foam mounted the ornament and added gold thread as a string and a clear rhinestone to the bow.  The sentiment from Holiday Ornaments  was gold heat embossed  on a white banner and foam mounted onto the ornament.

TheTon1129 set1 2 1WM

On this card I stamped the Folk Art Christmas Tree in ombre red using Lipstick Red, Valentine Red and Pink Derby. The front panel was glued on a red cardbase. I added thin red glitter tape on both sides of the front panel to add some shine. The silver heat embossed ornament is hanging on a silver thread. The sentiment from Holiday Ornaments was white heat embossed on a red banner.

Theton1129 set1 1 2WM

For the last card of the first set I used a red panel to white heat emboss the Folk Art Christmas Tree . The front panel was adhered on a white cardbase on both sides of which I added a strip of Adhesive Foil paper Gold. The ornament and the sentiment were gold heat embossed on white cardstock.

TheTon1129 set2 WM

The second set has a bow from Holiday Bows and Holly Branch as focal element.

To stamp the leaves of the Holly Branch I used Soft Garden and Bright Fern to achieve an ombre look. The veins were stamped in Basil Mojito. The berries are stamped in Valentine Red and Spiced Chai and the branch in Found Topaz. I then cut the Holly Branch using Coordinating die.

TheTon1129 set2 2 1WM

For the red version I stamped the biggest Holiday Bow in Valentine Red and Spiced Chai and fussy cut it. The front panel was created like the one on the second card of the first set. I foam mounted the Holly Branch and the red Holiday Bow and added the sentiment banner onto the bow using some foam adhesive. The white heat embossed sentiment is from Holiday Ornaments. To finish off I added clear Pico embellisher on the berries.

TheTon1129 set2 1 1WM

To stamp the green Folk Art Christmas Tree in ombre green I used Soft Garden, Bright Fern and Basil Mojito. The Holiday Bow was heat embossed in gold pearl and gold embossing powder on some light beige cardstock. I added Adhesive Foil paper Gold onto top and bottom of a white cardbase and adhered the front panel on it. The Holly Branch and Holiday Bow  were foam mounted. The sentiment from Holiday Ornaments was white heat embossed on a green banner created by blending Basil Mojito on some white cardstock. I popped the banner on the bow using some foam adhesive.

TheTon1129 set3 4WM

On these two cards the wreath from Christmas Wreath Builder set is the focal element. The wreaths were stamped in Bright Fern and Basil Mojito. The stem layer was stamped in Smoky Quartz. The wreaths were cut using Coordinating die.

TheTon1129 set3 2 2WM

For this card I gold heat embossed the Folk Art Christmas Tree on a red panel and glued it on a white cardbase on both sides of which I added transparent adhesive Glitter Paper . I gold heat embossed the stems of the pine branch on a wreath and foam mounted it onto the card. To finish off I added small sequins from Medallion Gold sequins mix on the wreath. The sentiment banner was created like the one of the previous card.

TheTon1129 set3 1 2WM

For my last card I stamped the Folk Art Christmas Tree in green ombre like the fifth card. The sentiment was stamped in Basil Mojito. I embellished the cardbase using green glitter tape and finished off the card by adding some sequins from Glass Slippers round confetti on the wreath.
