Rainbow Christmas Wish

Hi all. Vera here today bringing you some more last minute Christmas card ideas. I have to say this year, I really get into making Christmas cards more than ever. Maybe because of the time I have on my hand or maybe because of the facts that there are many fun products on my stash that really help me get in the mood.

For this card, I used an older set, called Christmas Sweater. I taped several felt square to the side of a thick cardboard and put some alcohol ink drops and then swipe them on a piece of Yupo paper. This is probably one of my favorite way to create rainbow background with alcohol ink.

Next, I stamped and heat embossed the Christmas Sweater on the panel. Trim the panel and adhere to card base. Next, I die cut the word Christmas using Many Sentiments (Holiday) Coverplate dies on a piece of metallic cardstock. Adhere to card base. To finish, I stamped & heat embossed the word Merry from Winter Foliage set.

There, a rainbow colored Christmas card. I know, not your typical Christmas color, but I figure everyone loves rainbow, so why not. Well peeps, that’s all from me today. Hope you enjoy today’s card. And, from our house to yours, I wish you all a very merry Christmas. Thank you for all your support for The Ton and here’s to a brighter 2021. Cheers….

Let It Snow – First Day of Winter

Hello, fellow crafters!! Happy First Day of Winter!! How was your last weekend before Christmas?

I have a card to share with you today that celebrates the first day of winter!! (Even though I’m not a winter girl…lol!!)

I began by working on the background…I swiped purple and blue alcohol inks across a panel of Yupo paper. After it was completely dry, I white heat embossed snowflakes from the Blizzard Hugs Stamp Set onto the panel. (Just be careful, if you don’t keep the heat gun moving you can melt the Yupo.) I trimmed down the panel slightly and adhered it to a top-folding white cardbase.

Next, I die-cut the sentiment using the Many Sentiments (Holiday) Coverplate Dies, Tall & Skinny Alphas Coverplate Dies and the snowflake using one of the Blizzard Hugs Dies. I cut the top layer from silver glitter paper and each of the same dies four times from white cardstock. I stacked and adhered them all together for lots of dimension, then added them to my card front. That’s it!!

I love these soft colors for the first day of winter and the glitter cardstock adds just the right amount of sparkle!!

Thank you so much for spending a bit of time with me today!! Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and all the best in 2021!!

Christmas Tree Card

Hello everyone! Olga with you today. I created one Christmas card using Pine Tree Cover Die.

I toned the cardstock using Parisian Blue and Deep Sapphire Dyes. I did`t use special tools for it. I just slid ink on paper. Then I applied Dot Coverplate Die to my background.

I made the trees using Everglade Moss , Deep Emerald Dyes and Pine Tree Cover Die. I decorated it with glitter.

I made the title using Coral Cavern Dye and Bold Alphas Upper Coverplate Dies. I added the sentiment from Winter Foliage.

I placed all details on the background and decorated my cad with Milky Way Couture Mix.

Have a nice day!

Tis The Season

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all doing well and having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with a holiday shaker card to inspire you for some last minute cards for the season 🙂 .

I paired the Holiday Border cling stamp with a poinsettia arrangement I made using Poinsesttia Wishes , Berry Bits and Winter Foliage grouped layering stamp sets. 

I white heat embossed the Holiday Border cling stamp on a watercolor paper panel. I ink blended it in Soft Amethyst, Iris Blooms, Plum Wine, Caribbean Turquoise, Azurite and Deep Sapphire. I kept the center of the panel white making the border of the panel darker.  I cut the panel with the holiday border die and set it aside. 

The ink colors I used for the poinsettias and other holiday elements are below.

I stamped them and cut them using the coordinating dies. I arranged the poinsettia cluster and secured it with a sheet of Press’N Seal.

I made the shaker part with the front panel by adhering a clear acetate sheet on the back of it and adding foam tapes. As the shaker elements I used Midnight Frost Couture Mix. After the shaker was finished I added the poinsettia arrangement to the card. The sentiment is from Easy Expressions Holiday set. I gold heat embossed the scripty part and stamped the rest in Noir.

That’s it from me for today! Hope you like my holiday shaker card 🙂 and got some inspiration for your own holiday card stash!

Have a crafty day!

Hugs,

TaeEun

Christmas shaker card

Hello, everyone! It’s Anna here today with a shaker card.

First, I created a Christmas tree with decorations and gift boxes. I started by stamping Mini Pine Tree with Bright Fern, Everglade Moss. For cut out it you can use Mini Pine Tree Coordinating Die. Christmas decorations from Christmas Tree were stamped in Valentine Red, Grand Fuchsia and Beach Blondie (stars) and cut out with coordinating dies. Then I stamped gift boxes from City Girls: Snow Day, heat embossed them in white and colored with Copic markers.

Next, I made a blue panel. I ink blended Cali Blue, Azurite and True Navy on a piece of white cardstock and cut out using SLIMLINE – Star Coverplate Die and added some white embossing enamel on it. I foam mounted this panel on a white A2 sized card base.

Shaker window was cut out using Dome Snow Globe Dies. I adhered a clear acetate sheet on the back of the card panel and added white border to the front of panel. I cut the base for the snow globe from the red cardstock.

I added a few confetti and sequins from Glass Slippers Sequins into the shaker and assembled the shaker elements together. For the sentiment, I heat embossed “Let it snow” from Poinsettia Wishes in Glitter Platinum and cut it with Many Sentiments Holiday dies.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,

Happy Holidays – Poinsettia Wreath

Hello and happy Monday!! I hope you had a great weekend!!

I love using non-traditional colors on my holiday cards!! I think this is the first time that I’ve ever used this color combo on a Christmas card!

I began by stamping the Poinsettia Wreath Stamp Set onto white cardstock with Caviar Ink, then colored it with Copic markers. I trimmed one side and added a strip of pink cardstock and silver glitter tape.

For the sentiment, I die-cut “happy holidays” from pink and silver glitter cardstock using the Many Sentiments (Holiday) Coverplate Dies. Lastly, I added some silver Stickles to the centers of the poinsettias.

I really love the way this turned out!! How about you…do you use more traditional colors or do you enjoy throwing in some non-traditional ones?

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Have a great week and I’ll see you soon!!

Love and Joy Card.

Hello everyone! Olga with you today. I made Christmas card using Fill It Holiday sentiment and others stamps set.

I used Berry Bits and Dies, Berry Branches and Dies for my Christmas bouquet. I toned the cardstock using Everglade Moss and Deep Emerald Dyes and applied Pine Spring Cover Die to it.

Then I made the background. I toned the cardstock with Coral Cavern and Valentine Red Dyes. I didn’t use a special tool for it. I just took ink and put it on paper. I applied Holiday Border and Scalloped A2 Nested Dies to it.

I used Pierced Nested Dies for the base of card. I placed all details and stamped the title using Noir. I decorated my card with watercolor splashes and Deck the Halls Couture Mix.

Love and Joy for you!

Hi peeps! Vera here today. I really been on a roll of making Christmas cards lately. Nothing like last minute efforts to create a pile of them, right?

For today’s card, I am showcasing the pretty Poinsettia Wishes set. To start with, I stamped the poinsettia using Rose Quartz, Soft Garnet and Hollywood Star. For the leaves I used Soft Garden & Deep Emerald. Die cut with the coordinating Poinsettia Wishes die.

Next, I used Pine Sprig Cover die on a green cardstock. I love using this set as filler. At first, I was going to adhere the flowers directly to the card base, but I feel like it’s not quite right. So, I decided to add a scallop panel using one of the frame from the Scalloped A2 Nested die. Adhere this to the card base, then arrange the flowers, leaves & sprig on top.

Oh yes, almost forgot. Lately when I am working with flower image, I love adding some shimmer using metallic watercolor. I think they just add some fun effect to the card. To finish the card, I added sentiment from Easy Expression Holiday set & add some enamel drops. Below, you could really see the pretty shimmer on this card.

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. I hope you enjoy today’s card. I still need to get my Christmas cards mail out. Really hoping I get to do it soon and not so last minute. Hah! May your day be a good one. Cheers…

Layered Peonies Birthday Card

Hello, crafty friends!! I hope you had a great weekend!!

Even though I have been busy making Christmas cards, I have A LOT of birthdays coming up in the month of December!! I thought I would share one with you today!!

I began by stamping the peonies and leaves from the Grouped Fresh Peonies Stamp Set onto white cardstock using the following collections: Peony, Blues, Amethyst ( I substituted Grape Crush for the darkest color), and Crystal Garden (only the two lightest colors). Then I cut them out with the Coordinating Die.

For the background, I just swiped the lightest color of ink pad from each collection directly onto a panel of white cardstock. I added some splatters with diluted black paint and a paintbrush. The panel was trimmed down slightly and adhered to an A2 size card base.

For the greeting, I die-cut “hello” from black and white cardstock using dies from the Script Word Dies Bundle. “Happy Birthday”, from Grouped Fresh Sunflowers, was stamped onto a strip of white cardstock with Noir Ink. It was matted with black cardstock and adhered across the bottom of “hello.” A few Clear Rhinestones add some sparkle and shine.

Well, that’ll do it for me today!! Have a great week and I’ll see you soon!!

Be Merry

Hello everyone! It’s TaeEun here today with a holiday card in traditional red with lots of sparkle!  I mainly used The Ton’s new die sets for this card! Without further ado, let’s take a look at my card :)!

I started by die cutting the anemone flowers using the Trio Anemone Cluster Layering dies. I cut the base layer and the second layer from heavyweight white cardstock and the outline layer from bright silver glitter cardstock. I layered them all and set them aside. I also cut the Pine Sprigs from the same white and bright silver glitter cardstock. 

To create the background I stamped Haute Stripes cling background stamp tilted on a piece of white cardstock in Lipstick Red and adhered it on a white cardbase. To add some festive border to the card I cut the two snowflake patterned borders from white cardstock using Holiday Border die set. I matted them with some white glitter paper and foam mounted them on both sides of the card. I then arranged the anemone flowers and Pine Sprigs as shown in the picture. 

The sentiment was cut using the Many Sentiments Holiday die set. I cut one red and three white sentiments for some dimension.  I finished off the card with three Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins.

I love how this card turned out. I think the anemone flowers work perfectly as holiday florals with the help of holiday themed dies 🙂 !

Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed looking my card!
