Merry

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 – Gold 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.

For my first card, I white heat embossed our new Thankful Chrysanthemum set. Then I added vibrant watercolors to color the image (Fuchsia, Lime Green and Gamboge Color Bursts). After I finished painting, I die cut my panel using the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangle dies (small) set. Then I made my own glitter cardstock using our Red Glitter Adhesive paperRed Glitter Adhesive paper.  Next I mounted my painted panel onto my glitter base. Lastly, I added Clear Dew Drops to embellish my card. chrys red glitter 2

For my next card, I used our Celebration Rose Cluster and Daffodil Greetings sets.

I started off by rose gold heat embossing our Celebration Rose Cluster in the corner of my A2 sized watercolor panel (Canson XL 140lb watercolor paper). Then I masked the rose cluster and partially heat embossed our Daffodil Greetings next to my rose cluster. This is a great way to stretch your floral cluster stamps – add additional florals to create a different/larger floral cluster!

After I heat embossed my customized cluster, I painted them with color bursts. Instead of blending out my first layer of color, I applied a very concentrated amount of paint and added shading to the petals using a second hue. For my roses, I used Alizarin Crimson and Merlot color bursts. For my daffodils, I used Gamboge and Tangerine. For my leaves, I used Lime Green and Terre Vert. For my background, I used Turquoise bursts. After I finished painting, I added stitching to the edges of the panel using our Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (large) set. Next I popped up my white embossed sentiment banner and embellished my card with clear rhinestones.

rose close up color pencils

For my last project, I merely stamped Rose Close Up and did some no line coloring.

To color, I started off with a first layer of a light copic marker. Then I added more color and depth using 4 color pencils (Faber Castell Polychromos). After I finished coloring this piece, I didn’t have the heart to cut it up to turn it into a finished card (it took me more than an hour to just color this piece). I will likely frame this later on.  However, I still wanted to showcase this piece for today.

I apologize for the lack of cards today! I am hoping that quality of my work compensates for the quantity (or lack thereof) for today.

Photo taken against our Natural Wood 12×12 inch Backdrop Board

For my first card, I was channeling my inner Kay Miller! With so many stamps to showcase, I had to draw inspiration from this amazing community. For this card, I stamped the cluster branches on a watercolor panel in our Noir Dye Ink (which can be used to watercolored over). Then I dropped in different shades of reds, oranges, yellows and browns onto my branches using the wet on wet watercolor technique. Once I was satisfied with the amount of color, I set the panel aside to dry. Then I splattered brown watercolor paint all over my panel.  Lastly I stamped the sentiment in our Dark Roast Dye Ink and mounted the panel onto a side folding A2 base.

autumn wishes birds

Photo taken against our Smooth White Wood 12×12 inch Backdrop Board

For my next card, I created a scene using our new Autumn Wishes.  I started off by blending cards onto an white A2 cardstock panel using our Arctic Sky Dye Ink and a homemade cloud stencil. Since my ink was light, I stamped my branch clusters directly onto my clouds and colored the images in with a combination of yellow, orange and brown zig markers. After I stamped the sentiment, I stamped additional birds on a separate card panel, colored them in, cut them out and popped them up on my branches. Lastly, I adhered my colored panel onto a dusty blue side folding A2 base.

How adorable are these birds!!

My last Autumn Wishes card is more simple than my first two projects. I gold heat embossed my branch clusters onto the top and bottom edges of an A2 watercolor panel. Then I added watercolor paint and stamped the sentiment in our Dark Roast Dye Ink. Next I trimmed the left and right edges and mounted the panel onto an A2 side folding kraft card base.

Lastly, I mounted the panel onto an A2 base and added our Clear Dew Drops (7mm and 5mm).

For my first card, I started off by gold heat embossing the floral section of our Tulip Bouquet onto an A2 sized card panel. I partially heat embossed the bouquet to obtain a mirror image effect. Then I watercolored the florals using Color Bursts (Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Red and Sap Green). Next I heat embossed the sentiment panel strip and popped it up onto my card in the center of my bouquets. I adhered my watercolored panel onto a side folding A2 black card base and lastly embellished my card with some clear rhinestones.

For my next project, I rose gold heat embossed the tulip bouquet and then watercolored the image with color bursts (peony and sap green). Then I embossed the vase onto kraft cardstock and trimmed it near the base so that it would taper off to look like my bouquet was newly wrapped/packaged. I added some character to my “vase” by adding shading with zig markers. Next I added the bow and clear rhinestones to complete my card.

For my last bouquet card, I stamped  my tulips onto cardstock with our Copic friendly Caviar Hybrid Ink. Then I colored in the image using a combination of Copics, a red Copic Spica glitter pen and a micron black pigment ink pen.

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 BlueParisian 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 FernDeep 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!

Ton_SeptHolly_red_FE1

Ton_SeptHolly_red_CE1

 

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.

Video: Blended Peony Crush Background

blended peony crush.jpg

Hi everyone! Effie here again with another project and video. For today’s card, I used our Peony Crush Cling Background stamp.

I started off by heat embossing this large stamp onto an A2 cardstock panel with our Rose Gold Embossing Powder.  Then I chose a jewel tone palette for my inks to blend onto this background. For my colors, I used Hollywood Star Dye (but I went over it with Cosmo Pink Hybrid later on), Beach Blondie Dye, Peach Blossom Dye, Coralline Hybrid, Soft Amethyst Dye and Cali Blue Dye inks. I had so much fun choosing this color palette. It was also a nice break from watercoloring (but not for too long- I’ll be back with a painting video soon)!

blended peony crush3

After I finished blending my panel, I added stitching to the edges with the largest die in our Double Stitched Rectangles (large) die set.

blended peony crush4

Next I stamped my sentiment (which came from our Sunnies set) onto navy cardstock using our Hampton White Pigment Ink. I trimmed by sentiment panel into a strip and created an additional sentiment accent strip using our Burnished Rose Gold Foil Tape.

blended peony crush 2

I adhered my sentiment strip onto my blended panel and then embellished my card with our Clear Rhinestones in our 3, 4 and 5mm sizes.

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my video and project.  Make sure to subscribe to our Youtube Channel because as I update it regularly each week. I will see you next time!

Hello! Olga is back! And today I will show you two cards. I was impressed by The Ton Fall 2017 Release so I’ve used the stamps from it to create my cards.

For the first card, I took Fireplace Accessories Stamps Set. I`ve stamped the sofa using Noir Dye. Then I cover masking paper on and stamped Scenes: Fireplace for the background using Crystal Pewter Dye.

I`ve stamped the fireplace once again using Smoky Quartz Dye to highlight it. Then I`ve stamped the chandelier using True Navy Dye and Miami Cool Dye. Also I`ve stamped holiday branches using Bright Fern Dye and Everglade Moss Dye. And I’ve colored with water-soluble inks all the elements over the card. I’ve used flag line stamp from Fireplace Holiday Accessories Stamps Set. As an end card was decorated with the sequins from Blue Ice Couture Mix .

For the second card I`ve used Holiday Ballet Stamps Set and Occasion Confetti Stamps for sentiment. I`ve stamped the ballerians and sentiment. After that I’ve continued with heat embossing using White Embossing Powder.

non-Holiday card from the Christmas Mini Cluster stamp

Hello, LauraJane here! Hope your weekend was a refreshing one:)  My card today  features the Christmas Mini Cluster stamp which is a GWP, gift with purchase, that will be available for purchase in October.

I chose to color the Christmas Mini Cluster stamped images in Autumn colors to celebrate the new season. First the stamp is repeatedly stamped across an A2 sized card with Crystal Pewter. Then colored with Copics and Zig markers.

After completing the no-line coloring, I re-stamped the Christmas Mini Cluster again with Crystal Pewter because I wanted MORE detail in the blue sprigs:) The MINI MISTI was a life saver here:))  Then I created a mask and stamped the Modern Labels with Aspen Cocoa and colored in the frame adding the sentiment from New Pretty inked with Italian Denim. Trimmed the panel with Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large). Embellished with Chocolate Fondue Nuvo Glitter Drops.

After looking at the card I decided to add one last bit of stamping:))  Mini Heart Print Cling Background was just what it needed to balance the whole thing…inked in Amber Citrine.
