Your Next Stamp

wc wreath blue duo

For my post, I made two cards and videos using our Watercolor Bouquet and Watercolor Wreath Stamps! I stamped and colored one panel and sliced it diagonally to create two cards.

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

I started off by stamping a background pattern using our Watercolor Bouquet stamp set in our Miami Cool Dye Ink. Then I colored in the background using color pencils. I added blue, dark pink and green accents for a bright and beautiful background panel. I sliced it in half and used the larger panel for my first card.

I stamped a rustic wood background using our Buildable Woodgrain layering stamp using our Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz Dye Inks. I only stamped about 2/3 of my panel since the bottom half would be covered by my bouquet panel.

Next I created a silver glitter and navy strip to adhere behind my bouquet panel. Next I mounted that onto my woodgrain panel. Then I heat embossed the beautiful wreath from our Watercolor Wreath onto navy cardstock using silver glitter embossing powder. I embossed my sentiment at the same time and then die cut the wreath using the coordinating die. Then I mounted the wreath and sentiment using foam tape.

For my second card, I used my remaining stamped bouquet piece.

I started off by white heat embossing our Peony Terrace stamp onto a top folding A2 horizontal cardbase. Then I adhered the bouquet sliced panel onto the left side of my base. I added a silver accent strip for some bling. Then I stamped a gorgeous frame from our Modern Labels set in our Ocean Teal Dye Ink. Next I stamped the sentiment from our Large Peony 4 set in our Miami Cool Dye Ink. Lastly, I die cut the label/frame using the coordinating die and then mounted it onto my base to complete my card.

The Ton Summer Kick Off Blog Hop + Video and Giveaway

Hello and welcome to our Summer Kick Off Blog Hop!! While this hop is not specific to any theme, we wanted to host a special blog hop with our design team to show off some projects made with our products released in the last few months. We’ve had so many flash releases in the last few months that I wanted to finally organize a property blog hop with our team to show off some of our stamps and dies.

We have some giveaways for this hop! Be sure to scroll through this post for more details.

Let’s move on to my project!

For my card, I used our Nesting Peonies stamp set. This is the sweetest set ever! It features a beautiful peony tree cluster with a trio of adorable chickadees.

Nesting Peonies water

Nesting Peonies, 4×6 Photopolymer Set

I started off by stamping this beautiful cluster onto a piece of watercolor paper (Canson XL 140lb Paper) using our archival Noir Dye Ink. I stamped this image around the outer edges of my panel to create a border.

Next, I prepared my panel to do some wet in wet watercoloring. For this technique, you are merely adding wet watercolor paint to a wet portion of your watercolor paper. To prepare my panel, I used a #16 Filbert Brush (Blick Scholastic Wonder White) to apply a wash of clean water to my panel. Then I started dropping in my watercolor paint (Dr. Ph Martin’s Radiant Liquid Watercolor) using a Pentel Aqua Brush. I started off by dropping in bits/dots of Alpine Rose to one half of the panel. Then I took a second, clean waterbrush to loosely blend the color out.

Once I was satisfied with the amount of blending, I continued to add a wash of clean water to the unpainted portion of my panel. Then I repeated the process to add color to the other half of the panel. Once I finished adding my Alpine Rose hue, I added additional dots of Persimmon color to create two tone peonies. I blended this color out in the same manner as the Rose.  I made sure to confine most of the warm colors to the peony areas of my stamped panel however, this project consisted of loose watercoloring so I did not take much care to stay within the lines!

Next, I applied Sap Green and Juniper Green in the same manner to the leaves of my panel. *All watercolors are from Set A of the Radiant Collection.

Once I finished painting, I used my heat gun to dry the panel. Then I die cut the panel using the largest dies from our Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (large) collection to add stitching to the edges of my panel. Next, I white heat embossed our sentiment onto black cardstock. After I cut the sentiment into a strip, I created a corresponding Ribbed Soft Gold Glitter Adhesive Paper strip that I used behind my original sentiment strip. Then I stamped my chickadees onto some more watercolor paper, painted them and then die cut them using coordinating dies. I adhered everything onto a top folding A2 base. Lastly, I used our Medallion Gold sequins to brighten up the card even more.

GIVEAWAYS:

We’re giving away a stamp set for each stop on the hop! Participants must leave a comment on each blog to qualify. *Does not include bundles.* Comment period will close on Sunday, June 10 at 11:59 pm and the winners will be announced here on The Ton blog sometime after.

Video: Watercolored Daisy Close Up Hugs

orange 34 daisy.jpg

Hi, everyone! I’m back with another video using our gorgeous Daisy (3/4 View) Close Up stamp! For this project, I did some watercoloring with Color Burst watercolor powders.

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

I started off by heat embossing our daisy image using our Rose Gold embossing powder. Then I watercolored the petals using Marigold and Lemon Yellow Color Bursts. I used Burnt Orange and Sepia for the center of the daisy. For the leaves, I used Sap Green and Terre Vert. For all of my painting today, I used a wet in wet technique to get some great blending of my oranges and yellows.

I used two Pentel Aqua Brushes (a medium and large tip brush). These watercolor pens have empty chambers where you can just unscrew the brush top to add clean water. I prefer water brushes over traditional paintbrushes when I watercolor because the pens themselves act as a readily available water source. If I need clean water, I can easily squeeze out some water using the brush I have on hand.

orange 34 daisy3

After I embossed my daisy onto my watercolor panel, I painted a thin layer of clean water onto my daisy leaves.  Then I added a little bit of Marigold Color Burst to the inner portions (near the center) of my daisy leaves. With my second water brush, I blended the marigold color out towards the edges of my leaves. I made sure to leave a little bit of the edges unpainted to leave some white space to my floral painting.

After I put down my base layer of Marigold, I added a little bit of lemon yellow to the lighter areas of my daisy leaves. I blended some of the lemon yellow out to the edges of the leaves. Next, I added more Marigold powder towards the center of my daisy for shading. I blended the color out just a tiny bit.

orange 34 daisy4

Once I painted the leaves, I painted the center of my daisy using Burnt Orange and Sepia. For the leaves, I used Sap Green and Terre Vert. I did not take too much care in painting these two areas (center and leaves) since they’re smaller areas in comparison to the petals.

Next I added gold foil strips to my side folding A2 cardbase and then adhered my painted panel onto the base. Then I die cut my Scripty Hugs sentiment using the same gold foil adhesive paper. After I adhered my hugs sentiment onto my card, I added our Clear Rhinestones. They look like gorgeous little rain drops!

orange 34 daisy2

That’s all for today. I was extremely satisfied with this bright and fiery, watercolored daisy.

I created a similar card a few months ago using the same colors, however, I used a different technique. Instead of painting the pigment onto my panel, I spritzed the pigment onto my panel straight from the color burst bottle. You can check out the video here.

Blooming Peony Garden Faux Watercoloring

blooming peony scribble

Photo taken against our Blue Ombre Wood Backdrop Board

Hello, everyone! I’m back with another video using our Blooming Peony Garden background stamp and Zig Markers.

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

I started off by gold heat embossing this gorgeous image onto watercolor paper (Canson 140lb). I used a Speedball Baren tool to get a nice and crisp impression from my stamp. Then I scribbled several zig markers onto my embossed image (Light Violet, Light Carmine, Dark Pink, Green and Light Green). Next, I spritzed a little bit of clean water onto my panel which activated all the beautiful ink. Then I sped up the drying process by using my heat tool so that I could start die cutting my sentiment.

*I learned this technique from Catherine Pooler which she applied to our original Peony Garden stamp a while back. The Scribble Technique term was later coined by Regina Cooper Bailey from the Stamp Junkies Facebook Group.*

I used our Hello word die from our Bold General Greetings Wordplate die collection. I die cut the hello right into the watercolor panel and additional die cut the hello on black cardstock. Next, I used the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangle Small Die collection to create a stitched panel that was slightly smaller than A2 size.

Photo taken against our White Marble Backdrop Board

Next, I used our scripty Fabulous word die to cut out four die cuts which I layered over each other to create a dimensional word embellishment.

Once all of my die cutting was complete, I adhered my watercolor panel onto a top folding, horizontal A2 cardbase using our strong double sided adhesive sheets. Then I popped in all of my black hello die cut letters into the negative space in my watercolored panel. Finally, I mounted my fabulous word die cut embellishment and added our clear dew drops.

That’s all from me today! Thanks for stopping by!

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.

you're-amazing-2You're-Amazing-3

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.

Thanks for hanging out with me today!!! Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Quick and Easy Holiday Cards

Hello everyone! I’m back with several card videos today featuring quick and easy holiday cards using some of our new stamps from this season. A few of the cards were featured in our recent releases. However, they’re accompanied by videos today(YAY!!)! Be sure to follow us on YouTube for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

Poinsettia Banner on Kraft

poin banner kraft

For my first card, I used our Poinsettia Banner stamp set.

I started off by stamping the Poinsettia Banner image and sentiment onto white cardstock using our Noir Dye Ink. Then I colored in the poinsettias, foliage and banner with Tombow Dual Tip markers (#885, 296, 133 and 95). Once I finished coloring, I die cut the image using the coordinating die.

Next I took an A2 kraft card panel and swiped some Warm Hazelnut Dye Ink across the entire card front. Then I added stitching to the panel using the two larges dies from our Double Stitched Rectangles (Large) Die set. I adhered the panel onto a side folding cardbase and then popped up my main image onto the panel. Lastly, I embellished the card using our Clear Dew Drops.

Holly Branch Border Card

For my next card I created a festive border using our Holly Branch set.

I stamped the outline holly branch in a border pattern onto an A2 card panel using our Noir Dye Ink. Then I stamped the solid images within the outline image using the outline image as a guide to easily add stamped color onto the holly clusters. The inks that I used to stamp the clusters are Soft Garden Dye, Valentine Red Dye and Warm Hazelnut Dye Inks. Next I stamped the sentiment from the same set in our Noir Dye Ink.

I created a top folding card base and added Yellow Gold Burnished Foil Tape to the top and bottom edges. Next I trimmed my stamped panel at the top and bottom edges and mounted it onto my base. Lastly I embellished my card using our Clear Dew Drops.

Two Folk Art Christmas Tree Cards

tree

For my blue Folk Art Christmas Tree card, I started off by stamping the large tree image onto white cardstock (A2 size) with our True Navy Dye Ink. Then I embossed the image with clear embossing powder. Next I sponged on different shades of ink (Cali Blue Dye, Miami Cool Dye, Italian Denim Dye and Grape Crush Dye) onto the white areas surrounding my tree. Then I added stitching to the edges of the panel using the largest die from our Double Stitched (Large) Rectangles die set. Lastly, I mounted the panel onto a side folding base.

For my red Folk Art Christmas Tree card, I white heat embossed the tree onto a red card panel. Then I clear heat embossed some of the small elements in the areas surrounding the tree. Once my embossing was complete, I added stitching to the edges of my card and mounted the panel onto a side folding A2 cardbase.

So that completes my holiday card post featuring four quick and easy cards that you can make last minute if needed. Thanks for stopping by and happy holidays, everyone!!

Video: Holiday Love Poinsettia Background

double holly love cb.jpg

Hello and welcome back! I am back with a one layered Christmas card. For today’s project, I created my own floral background using our Holiday Love Poinsettia.

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

I started off by stamping the Holiday Love Poinsettia image twice onto a piece of watercolor paper (Canson XL 140 LB watercolor paper). I positioned the stamp onto my panel while it was nestled into my Mini Misti. I stamped the image once, rotated my panel and then stamped the image again in embossing ink. Then I rose gold heat embossed the two images.

This card was actually a complete mistake! My panel was originally 4.5x6inches when I started this project. After I stamped the poinsettia image twice, they overlapped just a little bit. This is why I decided to create a background pattern.  I originally wanted to stamp the two images separately and then die cut them to utilize them differently. Once I saw they overlapped (after I spooned on the embossing powder), I couldn’t die cut one without compromising the other image. So to save my panel, I just went forward and embossed the rest of the panel using the different edges of the Holiday Love Poinsettia stamp to create a background panel. It was a happy accident!

double holly love cb3

Once the panel was completely embossed, I watercolored the images using my Color Bursts (Rouge, Lime Green, Terre Vert, Cadmium Red, Turquoise) and two fine tip aqua brushes. Once I finished painting, I set the panel aside to dry. Then I die cut the panel using the two largest dies from our Double Stitched Rectangles (Large) to create some texture with the stitching.  I taped the border panel and inner negative piece together on the back and then mounted the panel onto a side folding A2 cardbase using our strong double sided adhesive sheets (which I trimmed into several strips).

double holly love cb 2

Next I die cut my sentiment using our Holiday Word dies onto our new Ribbed Glitter Adhesive Paper. Lastly, I embellished my project using our Clear Rhinestones.

Our new Ribbed Glitter Adhesive Paper packs come in two different variety packs (Mixed Pack 1 and Mixed Pack 2). Each pack contains 5 sheets featuring five different hues. These new glitter packs differ from our original Glitter Adhesive Papers in that they have a textured effect to them.

nutcracker holly

For my project today, I combined several of our stamps to create a bright and fun Christmas card!

Follow us on YouTube for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by heat embossing our Folk Art Florals in a festive silver glitter embossing powder onto some regular white cardstock.  After I heat embossed the panel, I colored in the florals and foliage using zig markers (Carmine Red, Emerald Green and Beige).

Next I stamped the adorable Nutcracker image from our Holiday Ballet set in our Noir Dye Ink on a separate piece of cardstock and then colored him in (Carmine Red, Persian Blue, Flesh, Sugar Almond Pink and Wink of Stella Gold and Clear Glitter). After coloring him in, I used the coordinating die to cut him out. I set him aside to stamp two Holly Branch clusters. For these clusters, I used the following inks: Soft Garden Dye, Bright Fern Dye, Valentine Red Dye, Spiced Chai Dye and Warm Hazelnut Dye. Once I finished stamping, I used the coordinating die to cut out both branches.

Next I stamped our classic Holiday Bows. I used the second smallest bow and used a combination of Valentine Red and Spiced Chai Dye Inks. After I finished stamping the bow, I die cut the image. Then I white heat embossed my sentiment onto black cardstock and cut out the sentiment panel.

Once everything was stamped and die cut, I started assembling my card. I trimmed my floral panel and adhered it onto a red panel which was mounted onto a side folding A2 card base.  Next I popped up my holly branches using foam dots. Then I adhered the nutcracker within the holly clusters. Next I popped up the bow and adhered the sentiment.

Once I assembled the card, I added my finishing touches by embellishing my project using our Glass Slippers Sequins in various sizes.

autumn wishes windows

For my card today, I used our adorable Autumn Wishes set.

Don’t forget to subscribe to our Youtube Channel because I update it regularly with videos every week!

I started off creating a windows panel from cardstock using our Double Stitched Rectangle (large) and Square (small) dies. I traced the windows onto a separate card panel and blended some bright inks (Beach Blondie Dye, Bright Emerald Dye, Rose Quartz Dye) into the negative portions.

Next I stamped the smaller leaf clusters and birds using our Noir Dye Ink and colored them in using Tombow Dual Tip brush markers. Once everything was colored, I die cut the images using the coordinating dies.  Then I stamped the sentiment onto the windowed panel using our Noir Dye Ink.

Next, I used dimensional foam tape to pop up my windowed panel onto my blended panel. Then I adhered all the branches and sweet birds onto the windowed panel using additional foam tape. Lastly, I embellished my project using our Clear Rhinestones.
