Fall Hello

Hi all. How are you all doing? Vera here today and I am bringing you a fall card inspiration.

During the recent release, I didn’t get a chance to play with the Grouped Autumn Foliage, so I decided to do today’s card using this particular set. I love that you can stamp everything quickly.

For the yellow leaves I stamped them with Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Lemon Drop & Peach Blossom. The purple leaves were stamped with Soft Amethyst & Irish Blooms. The teal leaves were stamped with Caribbean Turquoise & Hot Tourmaline. Then I die cut all of them using thecoordinating Grouped Autumn Foliage dies.

Within few minutes I ended up with a bunch of leaves. Then I die cut some alphabets for my sentiment from colored cardstock using the Bold Alphas Upper & Bold Alphas Lower dies.

Then, I simply arrange all the leaves on the card base and then added the sentiment on top of all the leaves.

This card came together pretty quick. Probably the planning took me longer. Well, most of the time that’s the case with me. 🙂

I hope you enjoy today’s card and hope you start to have wonderful fall weather where you live. Thank you so much for stopping by here. Have a wonderful week peeps!

Fall Leaves

Hello everyone! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a Fall card! My card is featuring the Fall Leaves Layered Dies and A2 Grid coverplate die from our October 2020 Release. I also used some small bits from Cascade Bits grouped layering stamp! 

I started off by watercoloring a watercolor paper loosely in various Fall colors. After the panel was dry I cut the base layer of the Fall Leaves Layered die set from it. I love that the base layer has stitched details on the veins of the leaves!!! So pretty! I splattered gold ink on the leaves and set them aside to dry. 

The Cascade Bits was stamped in Hollywood Star/Grand Fuchsia and Red Sangria/Plum Wine. The stem was stamped in Warm Hazelnut and Found Topaz. I cut the image using the coordinating die

I cut two thick paper using the A2 Grid coverplate die and adhered them together to use it as a stencil. I applied white embossing paste through the stencil on a white cardbase. I did it only partially so that I have some white space on the cardbase. I sprinkled some gold and bronze embossing powder on the paste before it was dry and heat set it. The sentiment from the Cascade Bits set was stamped in Noir on the cardbase. 

I arranged a Fall leaf bouquet with the leaves and the Cascade Bits, tied a bow using a natural twine and added a golden pearl to it. 

That’s it from me for today! Hope you enjoyed looking my Fall card! 

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Poppy Smiles Thank You

Hello, fellow stampers and card makers!! I hope your Thursday is off to a great start!!

I have a card to share with you using the new Poppy Smiles stamp set!! I couldn’t wait to color this one!! I have a friend who LOVES poppies and I owe her a thank you card, so I already know where this one is going!!

I began by stamping the floral cluster from Poppy Smiles onto white cardstock with Vanilla Frosted Cupcake Ink for some no-line coloring. After coloring the image with Copics, I added some stamen with a yellow gel pen.

I die-cut the panel with the second largest die in the Scalloped Nested A2 Dies, then cut a panel of red cardstock with the largest die in the same set. I layered the scalloped panels onto an A2 size cardbase. For the sentiment, I stamped the Easy Expressions Thanks set onto white cardstock using Red Sangria and Noir inks, then die-cut them with the Coordinating Die. The die-cut sentiment was popped up with foam tape and I added some Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots for a little shine!

That’s it!! I really love how this turned out and hope my friend does too!!

Thanks for hanging out with me for a bit!! Have a wonderful day and I’ll see you soon!!

Fall Leaves

Hi peeps! Vera here. Yesterday The Ton released some really amazing sets and from the moment I got my package, I was creating like crazy. That’s what happened when the sets just inspire you to create.

For today, I want to showcase Fall Leaves Layered Dies in all its glory. I don’t think this ever really happened to me, but I ended up with 4 cards for today’s post.

It all started with this beauty bunch.

Honestly this all happened by accident. I had no plan when I started working with these leaves. I was just doing various ink blending using Soft Garden, Lemon Drop, Coralline, Bright Emerald & Iris Blooms. Then I die cut the leaves and the outline. Still no plan. I thought I was going to do a couple card, maybe one with the outline and the other with the solid leaves.

Then as I was just playing around and by accident stacking them, I really love the randomness of the colors between the outline part and the solid part. When I saw them like above, I was just like, wow, this is so cool. And, before I know it, I ended up with 4 clean & simple cards that’s totally make my heart sings. I love super clean & simple cards.

I did some more ink blending and using Slimline Short Stripes Coverplate dies, I ended up with some pretty colorful strips to match the leaves. For this first card, I simply put everything together and finished with sentiment from Easy Expressions.

For the next two cards, I am using the same sets and just created variation of the 1st card.

Now, for the 4th card, I decided to change thing up a bit. I used Slimline Diagonal Stripes Coverplate and use only a few of of the stripes. and combine 3 of the leaves.

All I can say, I am so happy with the way these cards turned out. Soft colors, plenty of white space, clean & simple design just make me happy. And, in a way it also show what a great set this Fall Leaves Layered Dies is. You could use 1 leaf or combine them however many you like and you could end up with several cards just from running this set one time.

Well peeps, I hope you enjoy today’s cards and I really hope you like them as much as I do. Thank you so much for stopping by here. Cheers….

October 2020 Stamp/Die Release

Hello and welcome back to our October 2020 Release! We have 14 new dies and 2 stamps (with coordinating dies) to debut today. Most of the items are available to ship immediately (except our Poppy Smiles Coordinating Die – see below for more details).

We have the entire release available for purchase in one easy bundle with a savings of over $100. You can check out the bundle here.

Let’s get started!

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

I want to introduce our stamps first and then our standalone dies. First up is our Poppy Smiles stamp set!

Poppy Smiles, 4×6 Photopolymer Set (coordinating die available separately)

I haven’t added a coloring floral stamp set to our collection in a while so I thought it was finally time! What I came up with is our gorgeous and new Poppy Smiles stamp set. This set features a large cluster image that is a dream to watercolor!

The coordinating die for our Poppy Smiles will have delayed shipping! Any orders containing this item will begin shipping on October 15.

Here are some watercolor Poppy Smiles!

Created by Tae Eun using our Poppy Smiles, Easy Expressions Thanks and Glass Slippers Sequins.

Created by Anna using our Poppy Smiles, Diamond Plaid Layering Coverplate Dies, Script Word Dies Bundle and Dew Drop Enamel Dots.

Created by Olga using our Poppy Smiles Stamp Set, Grid Slimline Die, Scallop Nesting Slimline Dies, Easy Expressions Birthday, Dew Drop Enamel Dots.

Cascade Bits, 6×8 Patent Pending Grouped Layering Photopolymer Stamp (coordinating die available separately)

Next up is our Cascade Bits stamp set! This is the newest addition to our patent pending grouped layering stamp collection!

Created by Brenda using our Cascade Bits, Grid A2 Coverplate Die (below), Easy Expressions Birthday and Couture Color Inks.

Now we have a few standalone dies to show you. Some of the designs might look familiar – we’ve converted some of our holiday themed digital files into dies! I was asked by many of our customers to produce these designs as physical dies so here they are!

I’m going to introduce all the dies first and then post a gallery of all the projects by our team after the lineup. Let’s begin!

First up are three alpha dies. Each die will cut out several alphas at once. One die features all the vowels and Y. The second larger die features consonants and the third die features the least used consonants (QVWXZ). By breaking up the coverplate dies, we wanted to help maximize your crafty time to make it easy to die cut alphas. One of my biggest gripes about die cutting was always taping down and cutting individual dies one by one. Especially smaller images or dies.

First up is our Bold Alphas Upper coverplate dies. These dies will cut out alphas in a bold uppercase font. Most die cut alphas in this collection measures approximately 7/8in x 1 5/8in.

Next is our Bold Alphas Lower coverplate dies. These dies will cut out alphas in a bold lowercase font. Most die cut alphas in this collection measures approximately 1in x 2in.

Next is our updated Modern Alphas Dies. The die cuts are the same as our original Modern Alphas coverplate die but this is an updated design with the three separated coverplate dies to ensure more productive die cutting sessions. You have one plate with a double layer of vowels, another main plate with commonly used consonants and the last plate consists of least used consonants.

We also added the Numbers/Symbols dies to our collection. These are available SEPARATELY from the alphas.

Next up is our standalone dies is our Fall Leaves Layered Dies!

With this bundle, you receive two large coverplate dies that will cut out 8 leaf images each. One coverplate die will cut out the solid leaves with stitching detail. The second die will cut out the coordinating outline dies. Die cuts from both coverplate dies can be used alone or together.

Created by Tae Eun using our Fall Leaves Layered Dies, Bold Alphas Upper Dies and Many Sentiments Dies.

Here’s a trio of cards that I made using our new Fall Leaves Layered Dies and Bold Alphas Upper coverplate dies and glossy fine gold glitter adhesive paper.

Next up is our simple A2 Grid Coverplate Die! This is a great basic item for your stash. Our grid design is a great neutral background for your A2 cards.

Created by Brenda using our A2 Grid coverplate die, Fall Leaves Layered Dies, Bold Alphas Lower dies and Many Sentiments dies.

Next up is our Holiday Border dies! There are 7 dies in total in this die bundle. These dies are approximately 8.5 inches long so you can use them on slimline dies as well as smaller formatted cards and projects.

This is a completely new design and not available in digital format. This bundle is one of my favorite from this release!

I taped my dies together to create a faux coverplate die to cut this beautiful panel out.

Created by Vera using our Holiday Border Dies and Modern Alpha dies.

Next up is our Scalloped A2 Nested Dies! This collection will cut out 8 scalloped panels. These dies also add a stitching detail to your die cut panel. There are 8 separate nested dies in this collection.

Holiday card with Berry Branches

Hello, everyone! Anna here with a holiday card I made using Berry Branches Grouped Layering stamp set.

I started by stamping berries in Red Sangria, but the second layer was heat embossed in white. Branches was stamped with Aspen Cocoa and Dark Roast. I cut out them all with Berry Branches Coordinating Die.

Blue panel was die cut from blue cardstock using Double Stitched Rectangle A2 Nested Dies. I foam mounted that card panel on a white card base. Then I affixed all branches to the card using 3D foam pads.

Next, I made a sentiment. I stamped “Happy Holidays” on a piece of red cardstock and heat embossed it in white. I cut out two words of that sentiment with Shadow background die from Many Sentiments (Holiday) Coverplate Dies. Did you know this die coordinates with sentiments from Berry Branches?

Lastly, I added a few Glass Slippers Round Confetti.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

A lot of Rose Card

Hello! I want to share with you amazing card today. It size is 3 5/8 in x 8 5/8 in. OMG, it`s great! I used a couple of grouped layering stamps sets.

At first, I stamped Rose Patch using Peach Blossom, Coral Cavern, Valentine Red. I used Bright Fern, Everglade Moss and Deep Emerald for leaves.

Then I applied Coordinating Die for it.

Next step was stamping Rose Labels. I used Beach Blondie for first layer. I stamped the next layers with the same dyes. I cut it using Coordinating Die.

Then I made the background. I embossed the cardstock using Candy Cane Stripes Coverplate Die. I cut it I cut it on two halves using Border Dies. I glued one halve to the top of the base and the other to the bottom.

I added watercolor splashes and pattern for decorating. I stamped the title from Rose Labels using Noir.

Here’s how it looks in use!

I added a sequins and glossy accents to finish.

Do you like this size too?

Let It Snow Berry Branches

Hello, crafty friends and happy Wednesday!! I hope you’re having a great week!! I can’t believe it’s the last day of September!!

You’ll have to excuse me…while I’m enjoying the fall season and colors, I’m also trying to get a jump on my holiday cards! So, I may jump around from fall to winter and Christmas quite often…ha! That being said, I have a winter card to share with you today!!

I began by stamping the Berry Branches Layering Stamps with the following ink colors: Soft Garnet, Red Sangria, Lipstick Red, Found Topaz & Aspen Cocoa. I die-cut them out with the Berry Branches Coordinating Dies, then went to work on my background.

I pictured these branches on a background of falling snow, so I die-cut a panel of pale blue cardstock with the Slimline Dot Coverplate Die. I ink- blended Parisian Blue and Azurite inks onto my die-cut panel, leaving a lighter space in the middle and adding the darker ink out toward the edges. I adhered the panel to a white slimline card base and adhered the branches to it with liquid adhesive.

For the sentiment, I stamped “let it snow” onto white cardstock with Parisian Blue ink using a stamp in the Poinsettia Wishes stamp set. I die-cut it out with the Many Sentiments Holiday Coverplate Dies. I also die-cut it two more times from white cardstock, stacked and adhered them together, then added it to the center of my card. I added some shine to the berries with a shimmer pen and called it done!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! What about you…do you concentrate on one holiday or season at a time, or do you hop around like I do?

Have a wonderful day and I’ll see you soon!!

Flower Bouquets

Hi all. Vera here bringing you a couple inspiration using The Ton newest sets that were released just a few days ago.

I was so pleased that I was able to use all 3 new floral sets for my cards today.

For both of my cards today, the sets I used are:
– Stamp: Grouped Fresh Peonies, Grouped Fresh Dahlias and Grouped Fresh Sunflowers
– Coordinating dies: Grouped Fresh Peonies, Grouped Fresh Dahlias and Grouped Fresh Sunflowers

I started by die-cutting the background using Slimline Grid Coverplate and trim it to fit inside my standard size card of 4.25 x 5.5″. Once that done, I stamped and die cut all the flowers. The dahlias were stamped using Peony collection, the peonies were stamped using Amethyst collection and finally the sunflowers were stamped using Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Lemon Drop & Amber Citrine. Whoops, almost forgot, the leaves were stamped using Soft Garden & Deep Emerald.

Arrange all the flowers and adhere to the card base. Sentiment is from Easy Expression Birthday. At the end I decided to add a bit more sparkle, so I added some metallic watercolor to the the deepest shadow of the flowers and leaves.

The great things of playing with these sets, you’ll end up with enough flowers to make 2-3 cards, depends on your flower arrangement.

For this card, I used one of the rectangle frame from Rectangle A2 Frames Slim Borders Coverplate. I adhere the frame to the card and then arrange the leftover flowers from the 1st card to make this card. For the sentiment I stamped and heat embossed sentiment from Wildflower Bits.

There you go, 2 cards that hopefully showcase the beauty and versatility of the recently release floral sets. That’s all from me today. Hope you enjoy today’s cards and may your week starts off wonderfully.

Cheers…

Poinsettia Wishes

Hello, friends! Anna here and today I’m sharing a Christmas card. It’s the first holiday card I made this season. ))

I started off by stamping images from Poinsettia Wishes with Soft Garnet, Red Sangria, Lipstick Red (poinsettias and berries); Deep Emerald and Everglade Moss (foliage). I cut out them all using Poinsettia Wishes Coordinating Die. Leaves from Winter Foliage were stamped in Bright Fern and Everglade Moss and cut out with Winter Foliage Coordinating Die. Then I stamped Pine Cones in Found Topaz, Aspen Cocoa, Dark Roast and die cut them using matching die.

For the background, I stamped Mini Dots on a A2 sized white cardstock with Cali Blue. After that, I created three poinsettia clusters (I really enjoyed making those clusters) and adhered them on the card. I stamped the sentiment from Easy Expressions Holiday stamp set with Noir and Cali Blue and cut out with Easy Expressions Holiday Coordinating Die.

Next, I added a few sequins from Rose Champagne Sparkle Couture Mix to embellish my card.

Thank you for stopping by today!
