I`ve used Soft Amethyst, Grape Crush, Iris Blooms Dye for the first flower and Coral Cavern Dye, Amber Citrine, Lemon Drop and Beach Blondie Dyes for the other flowers.

Pretty Plumeria

Hello, everyone! It’s Jenny here taking over the blog today! Have you seen our gorgeous October 2017 products? Oh my! I am so in love with the most beautiful floral images and super excited to showcase one of them on my project today! I chose Pretty Plumeria stamp set, because plumeria is very special flower to me. My husband and I had a small but beautiful wedding on the sands of Maui, so my bouquet was nothing but all Plumeria and my hair was decorated with tons of Plumeria as well. It truly brought back the happy memories while I was creating this project. ūüôā

Let me show you the card!

 

Ton_PrettyPlumeria_FE2

I started off by stamping few images from the Pretty Plumeria stamp set on a watercolor cardstock in Versamark. I sprinkled Silver Pearl embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool. I stamped the main center Plumeria cluster first, heat set, and masked the image and added on the other smaller images. Masking was very minor, I just used small pieces of Post-it notes and didn’t even have to fussy cut. Then, I colored the image with Stabilo 68 pens. I blended out the pigments with Clear Sparkle pen instead of clear water for shimmer effect. When the coloring of the image was done, I added tiny bit of shadow on the flowers with Light Gray Zig marker. Also, I added blue background with Turquoise Green Zig maker. I let it dry completely.

Next, I die cut the panel down with the largest die from our Small Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and stamped the sentiment (borrowed from Summer Blooms stamp set) in Noir Dye ink. Then I added some natural color twine on the panel and popped it up on a mint color A2 sized top folding card base. I dressed up the card with some Dew Drops and my project was complete!

Fall Colors

Hello Everyone! Anna here and today I have two fall colors cards to share with you.

SONY DSC

For the first card I started with a piece of watercolor paper and stamped the Magnolia Fields Cling Background on that using Versamark Ink . Then I embossed it with the Gold embossing powder. I colored that background with Holbein Watercolors (Permanent Yellow Lemon, Jaune Brillant, Light Red, Burnt Amber and Compose Blue).

SONY DSC

Then I stamped sentiment from Tulip Bouquet and cut it out using Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Small). I cut out the same rectangle of vellum. Then I affixed these to the watercolor panel using 3D foam pads. Lastly, I covered the card front with the beautiful watercolor panel.

I created the second card using Autumn Wishes stamp set.

SONY DSC

At first I stamped images from Autumn Wishes, colored  using Copic markers and fussy cut them. To create background I blended Peach Blossom Dye and Soft Amethyst onto a card. Then I adhered all images onto the card with foam tape.

I stamped sentiment in Noir and birds in Dark Roast Dye. Lastly, I added Amethyst Quartz Couture Mix to finish off the card.

Coloring using Layering Stamps

Hello everyone! And happy Friday!!! ¬†ūüôā¬†It’s TaeEun here today with two carnation cards to share with you.

I love gorgeous layering stamps by The Ton. But I’m a coloring addict, as you may already know, and have to color even images from layering stamps ūüôā . For today’s cards I used the third layer of Large Florals: Carnation stamp set as my guide to color the carnations. The carnation on the first card was watercolored using Inktense pencils and the second carnation was colored using Prismacolor colored pencils.

Let’s take a look at my first card!

TheTon1006 2 1WM

To start off I stamped the third layer of the Large Florals: Carnation in Picked Raspberry DI on some Bristol smooth paper. To define the outline of the flower I made a mask of the solid image, masked the flower and blended Crystal Pewter very light around the carnation flower. I then colored the flower using Inktense pencils. They are water soluble colored pencils, which are famous for their vibrant colors. First I drew the outlines of the petals in dark pink and added the darkest shade in the same color. I then blended the color out towards the tip of the petals using a wet brush. I added a little bit of red on some area. For the leaves I stamped the detail layer in green after masking the flower and colored them in blue and green. After the panel was dry, I fussy cut the carnation. The background panel was created by smooshing some green and blue Distress inks on mixed media paper. I added thin strips of Adhesive glitter paper-glossy fine silver on both sides of the panel and glued it flat on the soft pink cardbase.

TheTon1006 2 CUWM

I then foam mounted a square frame, cut with Double Stitched Square dies from a silver glitter panel made using  Adhesive glitter paper-glossy fine silver and added the flower using foam adhesives. The sentiment is from Penned Sentiments set. I white heat embossed it on a strip of black cardstock and added it onto the card. I used clear and Seaglass blue Dew Drops to embellish my card.

On my next card I used Black magic coloring technique (here gray magic? ūüôā ).

TheTon1006 1 3WM

I chose a gray cardstock for my next carnation. To color on a gray panel I first stamped the solid image in Hampton white pigment ink. After the white pigment ink was dry I stamped the third layer in Soft Garnet on the solid image. With the third layer as my guide I sketched the outlines of the petals using dark pink Prismacolor pencil and then started to color the carnation. I colored the leaves in various cool gray pencils and added shades around the carnation in gray too. I then created a bokeh background using Hampton white pigment ink and circle stencils. I narrowed down the gray panel while leaving the leaves , adhered thin strips of Adhesive glitter paper-glossy fine silver on both sides and mounted the panel flat on the soft pink cardbase.

TheTon1006 1 CUWM

The sentiment from Penned Sentiments was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock. The other part of the sentiment was stamped in Hampton white pigment underneath the black sentiment strip. To finish off I scattered some sequins from New Year and Spotlight Couture Mix.

Hello friends:)Eunji here. Today I am making a Christmas card for you using our new¬†Fireplace Holiday Accessories stamp set and¬†City Girls: Retail Therapy stamp set. Let’s take a look at my card.

IMG_5236

To start off, I stamped my Retail Therapy image stamp onto watercolor paper with our Noir ink. Then I colored the image with watercolor and then cut out (dies are available). Next I stamped the connected pine image from the holiday accessories set onto an A6 size watercolor panel with Basil Mojito ink. Then I stamped the poinsettia stamp onto the same card panel with Valentine Red ink. I also stamped additional ornaments in our Cali Blue, Lemon Drop ink. After I completed my background, I added additional color with watercolor paint. Next I drew line above my ornaments so that they appear to be hanging from the pine. Then I adhered my retail therapy lady to the card panel with foam tape. I also added some Adhesive Glitter Paper РGold as a base for my girl.  Lastly I stamped my sentiment from our Holiday Accessories set with Noir ink and added some shading with grey color watercolor paint.

Dimension & Sparkle

Hello everyone!! Brenda here with you today!! Thanks for joining me!! I can’t believe that tomorrow is the last day of September!!

I have two cards to share with you today. Two things I love to create on my cards are dimension & sparkle. You can’t have too much of either, in my opinion!!

Majestic-Birthday-1

When I first saw the Waterfall stamp set, I immediately thought “that would pair so well with the Mountain set.” so, that’s exactly what I did!! I started¬†by stamping¬†the Mountains with Crystal Pewter, Smoky Quartz & Light Onyx Inks; then I used the Mountain Coordinating Die to cut right up against the stamped image (eliminating the white edge). Next, the water & waterfall were stamped with Cali Blue &¬†Parisian Blue¬†Inks, using white heat embossing in some areas. The rocks were stamped with Crystal Pewter & Smoky Quartz¬†Inks. ¬†I stamped the rocks next to the waterfall & a couple of other times onto a separate piece of cardstock. I fussy cut the waterfall & the other rocks, then inked the edges with Smoky Quartz, to accent the edges and make them stand out more. I used Cali Blue Ink to lightly stencil some clouds onto the card base. The sentiment is also from the Waterfall set and was stamped using Parisian Blue¬†Ink. I layered all the images onto the card base, using up to three layers of dimensional adhesive. I LOVE all the dimension this added!! The mountains and rocks extending beyond the sides were then¬†trimmed off¬†evenly with the card base. Lastly, the birds from the Palm Tree set were stamped with Light Onyx Ink. These landscape background sets¬†are the perfect solution to the problem I have with making masculine cards!!

Majestic-Birthday-2

Majestic-Birthday-3

My next card has so much sparkle that it was really difficult to photograph. It is really cool in person, but the sparkly background, metallic sequins, and the reflection off acetate had me pulling my hair out!!

Never-stop-Reaching-1

I began by heat embossing several of the images from Star Trails onto a dark blue panel with Stardust embossing powder. I used the Double Stitched Rectangle Die (Large) to cut a frame for the shaker. The cute, little Mini Pine Tree was stamped onto white cardstock with Bright Fern & Deep Emerald Inks, using white embossing powder for the final layer, before fussy cutting. I tore some white cardstock and coated with Ice Stickles to create a couple of snow drifts. The sentiment is from Star Trails and was white heat embossed onto a sheet of heat resistant acetate. Milky Way & New Year Couture Mixes were used to create the shaker bits. Tiny white stars from the Frosted Spearmint Couture Mix topped off the trees for the finishing touch!!

Never-Stop-Reaching-2

Never-Stop-Reaching-3

That’s it for me today!! I hope I have inspired you to add some dimension and sparkle to your next project!!

Oh, wait…I almost forgot!! You still have¬†one more day¬†to play along with the beautiful mood board for the September Challenge!! A $50 Gift Code to The Ton’s Shop is up for grabs!!!

Holly Branch

Hello, everyone! Jenny here! Today, I would like to share couple of Christmas card I created using our new Holly Branch stamp set. This set is so versatile and it’s so fun to layer stamp like I did on today’s project, or you could just stamp the outline image and color with any coloring medium you’d like!

Let me show you the cards!

Ton_SeptHolly_T_FE3.jpg

First, I created the main panels by stamping all the layers on kraft cardstocks. The Couture ink colors I used are: Soft Garden Dye, Bright Fern Dye, Basil Mojito Dye, Valentine Red Dye, Lipstick Red Dye, Found Topaz Dye, and Dark Roast Dye. When all the layer stamping was done, I stamped the outline image slightly off-set in Versamark and heat embossed with Gold Sparkle embossing powder. Then, I stamped the sentiment in Noir Dye ink and trimmed both panels down to 4″x5.5″.

For the first card, I embellished the vertical edges of the stamped panel with Glossy Fine Gold Glitter adhesive paper. I popped it up on a red A2 card base with fun foam. I embellished the card with gold thread and some Deck the Halls Couture Mix and the card was done!

For the 2nd card, I added light coat of Warm Hazelnut Dye ink (only on 2 corners) and splattered some gold paint over the stamped panel. I let it dry completely and heat embossed the vertical edges with gold sparkle embossing powder. I popped up the panel on a black A2 card base with fun foam. I finished the card by adding some Christmas twine and sequins from Deck the Halls Couture Mix.
