Floral stamps from Fall 2019 Release

Hello crafty friends!  Hope your September is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of floral cards I made using two beautiful floral stamp sets from our Fall Release: Sweet Bouquet and Dahlia Close Up 2. I used two different coloring mediums to make my cards: colored pencils and alcohol ink.

The first card is featuring the beautiful Sweet Bouquet .

TT 1 1-2 WM

I stamped the Sweet Bouquet image on a toned gray paper panel in a white pigment ink. I left the stamp in my MISTI to use it later after coloring. I colored the image using Prismacolor colored pencils. I prefer Prismacolor pencils to Polychromos, when I use colored paper. I used lots of white and bright colors to cover the gray paper.

TT 1 CU2-2 WMx

After the coloring was completed, I stamped the bouquet again in an embossing ink and heat embossed the outline image in white. I cut the panel using a Double Stitched Rectangle die and mounted it flat on a white cardbase.

The sentiment from the same stamp set was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock and foam mounted onto the card. I finished off the card with a few clear Dew Drops.

TT 1 3-2 WM

For the second card for today I colored the gorgeous Dahlia Close Up 2 using alcohol inks.

TT 2 1-2 WM

To make this card I started off by stamping the image on an alcohol ink cardstock panel in a light ink. It helps me to choose the right color while I’m roughly adding alcohol inks to the panel. I dropped and blended Purple Twilight, Raspberry, Flamingo and Shell Pink where the large Dahlia flower is and added Slate to the area where the leaves are. I used rubbing alcohol to blend the inks.

TT 2 CU1-2 WM

After the panel was dry I silver heat embossed the image with the help of MISTI. I then started to add more colors onto the image. I used the same colors mentioned above and micro applicators to add darker shades on the petals and leaves.

TT 2 CU4-2 WM

After all the colors were dry I mounted the panel flat on a white cardbase. The sentiment was cut using Hugs word die from Glossy Fine Silver adhesive glitter paper and from some white cardstock. I stacked them together and adhered it on the card. The last finishing touch was some Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins.

TT 2 4-2 WM

I was quite happy with the results 🙂 ! Hope you enjoyed looking my cards today!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hugs,

TaeEun

 

Poinsettia Holiday Love

Hi peeps. Look at that. We are at the end of August. 4 months away from Christmas. So, I think it’s safe to say we can go ahead and work on our Christmas card stash. Especially when you have gorgeous set to work with.

For today, I am playing with The Ton beautiful Poinsettia Wreath set.

IMG2926.1

I started by stamping the wreath off center on a piece of watercolor paper and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I went to town and watercolor the wreath. This card is my first attempt in watercolor using Tombow marker and I have to say I love the result.

IMG2926.2

Once it dry, I stamped the sentiment from an oldie but goodie Holiday Love Poinsettia set. I think the classy  look of this sentiment is the perfect match for the elegant poinsettia. And, of course, I just had to add a little birdie from one of my all time favorite set Nesting Peony. Finished by adding some Pixie Pink Sparkling clear sequins.

Coloring this makes me fall in love with watercolor all over again. Cross fingers that on this long weekend I get time to play and do some watercoloring.

I hope you enjoy today’s card and inspire you to get started with your Christmas card. Thank you all for stopping by here and may your weekend be a great one. Cheers…

It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like…Christmas???

Hey there!! It’s a confusing time of year for me!! We are still having summer temperatures here in the Midwest, looking forward to the leaves turning beautiful fall colors, then Effie comes out with her stunning holiday designs…sigh. I can’t get into buying Christmas gifts or decorating early, but I can get behind getting an early start on my Christmas cards!!

My first card can be used for Christmas or any occasion…

buy-the-shoes-1

I stamped the Holiday Shoes image onto white cardstock with Caviar Ink, colored it with Copic markers and fussy cut it out. For the background, I stamped a couple of the stripes from Swatch It repeatedly onto white cardstock with Red Sangria and Caribbean Turquoise ink and cut it out with the largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle (Sm) Die. The shoe image was adhered with foam adhesive. The sentiment, also from Holiday Shoes, was white heat embossed onto a black cardstock strip and popped up with foam adhesive. Glass Slippers Round Confetti was sprinkled around I was finished!

buy-the-shoes-2

buy-the-shoes-3

My second card features the Loose Poinsettia stamp set…I LOVE these poinsettias!!

Loose-poinsettias-1

I stamped all of the images from the Loose Poinsettias stamp set onto white cardstock with Caviar Ink, colored them with Copics and added details with colored pencils. I fussy cut the images and ran a black Tombow marker around the outside. I added some Silver Glitter Tape down each side of a white cardbase, then adhered a black cardstock panel. The greeting, from the Poinsettia Wreath set, was white heat embossed onto the black panel. The berries and leaves were adhered flat to the black panel, while the poinsettias were popped up with foam adhesive. I splattered diluted white gouache onto the card and added silver stickles to the center of the blooms. To finish, a few Silver Metallic Sequins were added around the sentiment.

That’s it for me today!! Thanks for stopping by!!

How about you…do you get an early start on Christmas?

Flight Booking Tip – I use the Hopper App to track flights when I plan on traveling! It’s a great tool to feel out flight prices and it also lets you know if the price is a good deal or not. At the time that you search, the app will let you know if it’s a good flight price or not. It will tell you to wait for a better price or book now (this is very handy). You can also set up alerts for the app to notify you when flight prices go down. Hopper does charge a fee when you book flights through the app so I use the app as a price guide and will just book directly with the airline when I find a good price!

Sponsors

In addition to The Ton Stamps products, you’ll also receive additional swag or product from some of our generous and amazing sponsors. We already have three fabulous sponsors lined up for our retreat!!

It’s so wonderful to have such great friends in this community!! This list will be updated as we get closer to our event.

This is truly exciting for me! I’ve been wanting to organize a retreat/event for a few years now and now it’s happening. I finally have the confidence to actually do this!

If you’re unsure about taking my classes, check out these reviews from some of my prior class participants from Junkiefest this year:

I hope you are as excited as I am. Let me know in the comments, are you in? Are you interested in coming? I’d love to see you in March!!

Hello, everyone! It’s Anna here with a couple of fun summer cards. Hope you are enjoying last days of August!

The first card features Palm Close Up and City Girls Summer Sunshine stamp sets.

SONY DSC

I started by stamping images from these stamp sets onto a watercolor paper in Caviar and colored them with Holbein watercolors. Then I fussy cut them all.

For the background I ink blended Warm Hazelnut and Cali Blue. I added some white and glitter gold embossing powder (and heat embossed it) to make the “sand”.

SONY DSC

Next, I stamped the sentiment  from City Girls Summer Sunshine in Noir and adhered all images on the card.

My next card is showcasing the City Girls Sunkissed Mermaids stamps.

SONY DSC

At first, I stamped mermaids onto a watercolor paper in Caviar, color with watercolors and fussy cut them all.

The background was made the same way like for the first card. To create a beach atmosphere, I adhered a palm tree on the card. The palm and the cloud were stamped from Ocean Free stamp set, colored and fussy cut as well.

SONY DSC

Next, I stamped the sentiment from City Girls Sunkissed Mermaids on a stripe of kraft cardstock and heat embossed it in white.

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

Sending Positive Vibes

Hi peeps! Happy Monday. Vera here. Can you believe it’s already the last week of August? Feel like the older I got,  the faster times slipping by. Yikes…

Anyway, I am here to bring you a colorful inspiration on behalf of The Ton. Today, I am showcasing the new Sunny Folk Garden set.

IMG2923.1
To make this card, I started by stamping the butterfly outline on a piece of cardstock and then cut it out using Brother Scan-N-Cut. I used the cut out opening as my stencil. Now, on a hindsight, I should have cut it out of a piece of acetate so I can keep re-using it.

Using the cut out opening on the cardstock, I trace the opening so I can figure out the placement for each butterfly. Then using it as a stencil, I inked up the opening with various ink color. I used The Ton Cali Blue, Caribbean Turquoise, Soft Garden, Lemon Drop, Coralline, Cosmopolitan Pink.

D84A44A7-8197-4EBC-BE56-891B2289E359
Once I am done with the coloring, I stamped the butterflies wings and heat embossed it with fine white embossing powder. Now, as you can see the color on the butterflies above looks different than on my card. That’s because after I took this picture and was working on the heat embossing part, I messed up a couple of the butterflies.

Yep, I was so irritated at myself for messing it up after I almost finished, but hey, that’s part of the process. I took a breath and told myself, just take the time to do it all over again.

So, I re-did a couple of the butterflies and by the time I finished blending the ink, they come out a bit different than my original one. I also made slight change of plan. Instead of a flat layer butterfly card, I cut out all the butterfly and adhere them to the card base with foam adhesive. And, I actually like it way better compare to if it’s been a flat one.

Finished by stamping the sentiment on strip of cardstock and again adhere to card bae with foam adhesive. Add some shimmer to the butterfly with shimmer marker.

IMG2923.2
I am pretty happy with the way this card turned out. You know, sometime you have an idea in your head and sometime it work out and sometime it doesn’t. This time, it works. Yes, I messed up along the way, but at the end it was a good messed up, because the correction ended up better than the original idea. 🙂

How about you? Do you usually continue or re-do stuff after you make a mistake or you just chuck the whole idea? I am in between. There’s time where I get so frustrated and just chuck it & completely abandon the plan. Depends on my mood & patience on that time. Hah!

Well peeps, I hope you enjoy today’s inspiration. May your week starts off wonderfully. Sending positive vibes your way! Hugs.

Autumn Sweater, 5.75 x 5.75 Photopolymer Stamp

White heat embossed on colored cardstock.

Project by Effie. For this card, I white heat embossed the Autumn Sweater Background onto light coral cardstock and trimmed it about an eighth of an inch on each side. I set that aside and stamped the squirrel and leaf stamps (from our Oak Leaf Print set – below). For these smaller stamps, I used our Spiced Chai, Lipstick red and Found Topaz inks. Next I cut these images out and arranged them onto a circle die cut. I popped it up along with the sentiment onto my white embossed background and finalized my card with Gold Medallion Sequins.

Oak Leaf Print, 4×6 Photopolymer Set

Next up in our seasonal lineup is our Oak Leaf Print! This is the fall version of our Folk Art Christmas Tree stamp. I wanted to create a whimsical fall themed stamp based on this folk art theme.

Stamped using a combination of our inks: Amber Citrine, Peach Blossom, Coral Cavern, Spiced Chai

Project by Effie created using our Oak Leaf Print stamp, Geometric Circles Cover Plate Die, Ribbed Soft Gold Adhesive Paper and Gold Medallion Sequins.

Thanksgiving Block, 4×6 Photopolymer Set

This is the Thanksgiving version of our Vintage Christmas Block! It will be easy to mass produce your Thanksgiving card this year with our new block print design stamp.

I stamped this new fall themed block design using our Cocoa Collection inks and Peach Blossom, Coralline Hybrid and Coral Cavern inks. I also used the butterflies from our Sunny Folk Garden to embellish the cards.

I created an ombre effect using our Peach Blossom, Coralline and Coral Cavern inks. I used my Misti to stamp each color layer and obtain this perfect ombre result.

Holding Onto Summer

Hello, crafty friends!! I refuse to believe that summer is coming to an end!! As long as the temperatures are warm, it is still summer to me…ha!

I have three cards to share with you today!! Two are definitely summer-themed!!

Let’s get started!!

girls-just-wanna-1

I began by stamping the palm tree and clouds from Ocean Free stamp set onto a white cardstock panel with Caviar and Arctic Sky inks. I also stamped the girl on the beach towel and the umbrella from City Girls: Summer Sunshine onto another piece of white cardstock with Caviar ink. I colored all of the images with Copics and die-cut the panel with the largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle Die (Lg), then fussy cut the girl and umbrella. The sentiment, from City Girls: Sunkissed Mermaids, was white heat embossed onto a black cardstock strip. The sentiment strip, girl and umbrella were all popped up with foam adhesive.

girls-just-wanna-2

girls-just-wanna-3

My second card was created pretty much to same way…

be-a-mermaid-1

This time, I stamped the background with the Ocean Free stamp set again and the mermaid using City Girls: Sunkissed Mermaids. The sentiment is also from the Sunkissed Mermaids set. I added some white Amplify to the waves, which “puffs up” when you add heat to it.

be-a-mermaid-2

be-a-mermaid-3

On to my third card…

Palm-leaf-1

For this one, I stamped the Palm Close Up onto white cardstock with Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, then colored it with Copics. The second largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Lg) was used to die-cut the image and it was matted with black cardstock. The sentiment, from Coming Up Daisies, was white heat embossed onto a black cardstock strip. A few Glass Slippers Sequins add a bit of sparkle.

Palm-leaf-2

Palm-leaf-3

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Have a wonderful weekend!!
