Poinsettia Banner Shaker

Hello, fellow card makers!! Brenda, here today with a Christmas shaker card created with the Poinsettia Banner set and Coordinating Die.

Merry-Christmas-&-Happy-New-Year1

First, I stamped the Poinsettia Banner onto Bristol cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I colored in the image with a combination of Tombow & Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Next, I die-cut a panel of red cardstock with the Poinsettia Banner Coordinating Die. I splattered some watered down white paint onto the red panel. Lastly, I assembled the shaker as shown, using the Deck the Halls Couture Mix for the shaker elements. Such a simple card, with a ton of wow factor!!

Holiday Ornaments

Hello! It’s LauraJane. Hope you have had a Lovely Holiday Weekend:)  I have a cheery card featuring the new Holiday Ornaments stamp set.

#theton-holidayornaments-LauraJane

To make the card:

  • I inked each ornament with Distress inks and dauber to get a gradient shading on the left side.   The MISTI  tool was the key to getting this shading just right.. I could re-ink as many times as needed and got perfect placement each time!
  • When the ornaments were colored to my liking, I used the Scan ‘n Cut to cut them out and set them aside while I prepared a background panel.
  • Utilizing the paper from which the ornaments were cut as a stencil, I quickly created a shadow for each ornament onto a white piece of card stock. Inked with the darkest shade of red.
  • Then I stamped several branches from Holiday Cones (Coord. Outlines).in a light pink.
  • I embossed Holiday Confetti in GOLD EP, as well as, “dipping” 2 edges of the panel in Gold by scraping the versamark on the cardfront then adding the powder.
  • Using a circle punch and then cutting each in half, I made the ornament “toppers”
  • I placed the finished Holiday Ornaments slightly to the right of each shadow.
  • Stitched some GOLD embroidery thread as the string and glued a topper into place. Trimmed the panel down so I could add a strip of Foil tape to the left.
  • The sentiment is inked in Dark Roast couture ink.

Sparkle & Shine

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Lisa here!  I hope you all are having a wonderful day celebrating with your families and friends and giving thanks for all that is good.   Tomorrow we begin the hectic season of decorating, shopping, baking and those fun Christmas parties.  In the next couple of weeks, most of us in the card making community will be addressing, stamping and mailing the Christmas cards that we’ve been working so hard on.  Are you ready?

Today I’d like to share a couple Christmas cards  I made using two new Christmas stamp sets that hit The Ton shop earlier this month.  Both of these cards are loaded with a golden sparkle and shine that I think really gives an elegant, formal feeling to a card.

 I stamped and blended the base of my first  card with the pine boughs from the Holiday Cones Coordinating Outlines stamp set and Everglade Moss, Basil Mojito and Soft Garden ink. After coloring the stems with a Mid-Brown Kuretake watercolor marker, I flicked on some watered down Gesso splatters for a snowy affect.   Next, I used stamps from the new Holiday Ornaments stamp set and embossed them using a heat tool, Ranger Gold Tinsel and Blue Tinsel embossing glitter.  These ornaments have very delicate pattern that stamps beautifully.

Golden 001ADJ copy.jpgSMbest

For my blue ornaments you’ll notice that my Versamark pad was a little dry so the embossing glitter didn’t stick as well as I would have liked.    But the more I looked at them the more I liked the worn vintage look so I decided to use them anyway. Each ornament was adhered with dimensional tape for a little pop.

Golden 016ADJ copy.jpgSMbest

I used a banner from the Basic Banners stamps and coordinating dies.  The sentiments from the Holiday Ornaments stamp set fit perfectly into this banner.  I swiped over the banner with some Delicata Gold pigment ink to make it sparkle.   For the finishing touches on this card I added some Gold Glitter Tape along the bottom and glued some random gold sequins from the Kiwi Smoothie Couture mix.

Golden 014ADJ copy.jpgSMbest

For my second card I used the amazing Vintage Christmas Block stamp set created by Effie for November’s release.  This stamp set tops my favorites list for 2017.  It’s so different from any of the stamps I own.  It’s big and bold but the images are also very detailed and delicate.  Instead of stamping the sentiment and images, you are actually stamping the background.

Keeping with my gold theme, decided to go all out and do some embossing with Ranger Gold embossing powder on top of some of The Ton’s Gold Foil Paper.   I honestly didn’t know how this paper would hold up but it surprised me and turned out way better than I expected!

Golden 005ADJ copy.jpgSMbest

I cut this foil paper about an 1 1/2″ larger than the image.  It ended up being a good thing because the heat tool did make the edges curl and I had to trim them down.  I made sure my heat tool was running hot before I used it on the embossing powder.  It embosses really fast you really have to be careful not to scorch the paper.

Golden 021ADJ copy.jpgSMbest

The tiny, detailed images in this stamp embossed beautifully! I layered this card up first with a 3/4 strip of paper at the bottom stamped with Minor Stripes Cling Background and Deep Emerald ink.  Then I took a Valentine Red ink pad directly to the edges of a 4 x 5 1/4″ piece of white cardstock and adhered it at an angle to the card base.  I adhered the embossed foiled image to a piece of 3 3/4 x 5″ piece of cardstock and glued a piece of fun foam onto the back before attaching it to the card front.  Using the Holiday Flourishes stamp set, Valentine Red and Deep Emerald inks, I created a holiday embellishment for the bottom right hand corner.  A little Wink of Stella clear glitter pen and some gold sequins from the Kiwi Smoothie Couture Mix added just a little more sparkle to this card.

Hello Everyone! Anna here with two holiday cards I made using The Ton Fall 2017 Release stamp sets.

SONY DSC

For the first one, I stamped four images from Holly Branch stamps with Everglade Moss Dye, Couture Color – Valentine Red Dye and Couture Color – Hampton White Pigment. The branches were stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed in Rose Gold. All images were cut out with Holly Branch Coordinating Die. Then I stamped sentiment on a A2 sized kraft cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I added some Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel at the top and at the bottom of my kraft card panel and adhered all holly branches onto that panel. Lastly, I attached the kraft panel to the card base.

SONY DSC

To create my second card I started by stamping beautiful poinsettias from Christmas Mini Cluster onto a white cardstock with Caviar. I colored them with Copic markers. Then I stamped the same images on Masking Paper and cut out them. I covered flowes I stamped on the white cardstock with the pieces of masking paper. I ink blended the edges of the panel using Hot Tourmaline Dye and removed masking paper. Next, I added some white and gold gel pen dots. I stamped sentiment from Holiday Love Poinsettia with Noir. I embellished the card using Nuvo Drops – Pale Gold.

That’s all from me today!

Christmas Pop-up Box Card

Hello! Olga is here.

Today I want to show you my pop up box. I love interactive cards but sometimes I am too lazy to do it!

The designing of the box card  are pretty simple so I’ll give your attention on the filling of the box.

SAM_8410

For the back wall of the box, I applied Scenes Fireplace with Crystal Pewter Dye and colored it. For the other parts I used Haut Stripes Cling Background with water-soluble ink.

SAM_8414

For internal filling of the box, I used some of the elements of stamps Fireplace Accessories and Coordinating Dies, Fireplace Holiday Accessories and Dies, Holiday Ballet and Dies. I colored them with water-soluble ink.

SAM_8424

I used overlay to attach flag line and some other elements. To decorate the front of the box I used Christmas Mini Cluster Stamp . I just stamped and colored it and then I cutted it using Coordinating Die. I also applied  Cozy Poinsettia Stamps Set  and Basic Banners Stamp and Dies for the title.

SAM_8408

I used Noir Dye for stamping all elements and sentiment of my Christmas box.

Thank you for your attention!

Holiday Ornaments

Hi everyone! How’s it going? Vera here today. This past week been quite a whirlwind as this is the last week of Caring Hearts Card Drive (The Ton is one of the generous sponsor for the card drive). Let just say, every night after work, I sleep, eat, breath cards.

As of last night I have unpacked about 15,912 cards. Yep, my dining room been taken over by cards.

Anyway, since I am surrounded by Christmas cards, of course for today I also have to go with Christmas theme. Using the beautiful Holiday Ornaments set I made 2 cards that I hope you enjoy as much as I enjoy making them.

IMG_0185
For this first card, I simply stamped the ornaments in various colors and then covered them with Sparkle Noir sparkle marker. Finished by stamped the sentiment & adding some sequins from Blue Ice Couture mix.

Next I went with watercolor.

IMG_0186
I just love this color combo! I first watercolor the card panel and then let it dry. Once it dry, I stamped and heat embossed the ornaments and hand drawn the lines with glitter pen. For the embellishment, just like t he first card, I used Blue Ice Couture mix.

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. May your Friday be a fabulous one. Cheers….

Christmas Cards – Silver&Blue

Hello, everyone! It’s Jenny here today and I’d like to share couple of holiday cards I created using Vintage Christmas Block stamp set and Christmas Sweater stamp from our November Release! These stamps are gorgeously designed and you could create beautiful cards without a lot of work! I kept my cards silver&blue, which is one of my favorite color combination for holiday cards.

Let me show you the first card!

Ton_Nov2017Release_sweater_FE1

I stamped the Christmas Sweater image and heat embossed in silver on a watercolor cardstock. Then, I sprinkled some Ultramarine Blue and Prussian Blue Color Burst powder and spritzed water to help the pigments to bloom out over the entire image. I repeated the process until I was happy with the result and dried the panel using the heat tool. I die cut the panel using the largest layer from our Large Double Stitched Square Dies.

Ton_Nov2017Release_Sweater_CE1

On a white 5.25″ square card base, I adhered Glossy Fine Silver Adhesive paper to create the background and popped up the main panel on top using fun foam. I created the sentiment banner using our Basic Banner stamp set and the Basic Banner dies. I stamped the sentiment from our Holiday Add-On Mini stamp set in True Navy Dye ink. I placed silver thread on the card and popped up the sentiment banner over it using foam tape. I finished the card by adding some Silver Metallic sequins.

Ton_Nov2017Release_Sweater_CE2


 

Here’s the 2nd card!

Ton_Nov2017Release_Block_FE1

I started off by stamping the Vintage Christmas Block image on a smooth white cardstock in Cali Blue Dye, Deep Sapphire Dye, and True Navy Dye ink. I created a gradation look by applying ink colors on stamp using the sponge daubers. With the help of the MISTI tool, I repeated the process few times to achieve the look I was happy with. Then, I trimmed down the panel and heat embossed the edges with Silver Glitter embossing powder. I wrapped the silver thread around the panel and adhered fun foam on the back, ready to go on the card base.

Ton_Nov2017Release_Block_CE1

Next, I smudged the edges of a white A2 card base with True Navy Dye ink pad to match the main panel. I adhered the Glossy Fine Silver Glitter Adhesive paper on a white carstock, trimmed it down, and adhered it on the card base. Then I adhered the main panel and completed the card by adding some Clear Rhinestones and Glass Slippers sequins.

Christmas cards in sets

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today sharing 4 Christmas cards in two different designs.

I usually make a single card with a design. But this time I played around with different colors and placements and made two cards for eace design. So I have 4 more Christmas cards ready for this season :)!

The first set was created using Cozy Poinsettias.

TheTon1115 set1 2WM

TheTon1115 1 1 WM

To create this card I white heat embossed Cozy Poinsettias image two times on a beige cardstock. I splattered opaque white paint on the panel and cut it using Double Stitched rectangle die slightly smaller than A2. I gold heat embossed Cozy Poinsettias  again on a Bristol smooth panel, watercolored it and cut it with the coordinating die. I foam mounted the beige panel on a white cardbase and popped up the poinsettia cluster on it. The sentiment is from Cozy Poinsettias as well. I stamped it in Noir and added some sequins from Glass Slippers round confetti.

TheTon1115 1 CUWM

The second card in the same design like the first one is in blue and purple.

TheTon1115 2 1WM

This time I heat embossed Cozy Poinsettias in gold pearl embossing powder and colored the poinsettia cluster with Prismacolor colored pencils. I used a blue cardbase to match it to the image. The sentiment was white heat embossed. Some sequins from Gold Medallion were my finishing touch.

TheTon1115 2 CUWM

Next two cards are in traditional colors, red and green :)! I created watercolor wash as backdrop for Brushed Merry in green and red and embellished the cards with Good Tidings Cluster and Christmas Mini Cluster sets.

TheTon1115 set2WM

TheTon1115 3 1WM

The watercolored background panel was cut with Double Stitched rectangle die and glued on a white cardbase. I stamped Brushed Merry in Noir on a separate white cardstock and cut it with my cutting machine. I heat embossed it in silver glitter embossing powder and clear heat embossed it again. The images from Good Tidings Cluster and Christmas Mini Cluster were white heat embossed on some watercolor paper , watercolored and cut using coordinating dies . The Brushed Merry was glued on the background panel and the poinsettia clusters were foam mounted onto the card. I scattered some mini clear sequins from Deck the Halls Couture Mix and added white Pico Embellisher on the berries to finish off the card.

TheTon1115 3 CU2WM

On my last card I white heat embossed Brushed Merry on the watercolor background panel. I drew a shadow line around the letters in red Spica glitter pen.

TheTon1115 4 1WM

I repeated the same process like the previous card. To finish of this version I added some sequins from Elf Stockings and Deck the Halls Couture Mix.

TheTon1115 4 CU2WM

That’s all from me today :)! Hope you enjoyed looking my Christmas cards.
