Sending Hugs

Hello crafty friends! Hope your week is off to a great start!

It’s TaeEun here today with a fiery floral card featuring Coming Up Peonies. I colored this beautiful peony cluster from Coming Up Peonies set using Copic markers. I tried a new color combination.

I started off by stamping the image in Copic friendly Caviar hybrid ink. The peonies were colored in R30, R32, R37 and R89 which create beautiful coral shade. The leaves and stems were colored using V91, V93, V95 and V99. These V colors are very similar to warm gray colors with a touch of violet.

After coloring was done I cut the image using the coordinating die and set it aside.

I wanted a dark background. At first I tried a black panel but changed my mind and blended a coral to black ombre on a white panel. I used Coral Cavern, Peach Blossom, Grape Crush , Smoky Quartz, Light Onyx and Noir. I let the panel completely dry and stamped the Modern Plaid background stamp in an embossing ink on it. I then applied Mandarin Perfect Pearls powder on it using a dry paint brush. The powder sticks on the embossing ink and creates a subtle shiny pattern. I added water to the same powder and splattered it onto the panel. I also splattered white opaque ink.

After the panel was dry I cut it using the largest Double Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it on a black cardbase. I then foam mounted the Coming Up Peonies image on it.

The die cut sentiment was cut using Love and Hugs word plate die from Glossy Fine Black Adhesive glitter paper and from some black fun foam. I raised the black glitter die cut on the fun foam and added it onto the card. I finished off the card by adding some Glass Slippers sequins.

Thank you so much for stopping by and looking my card today! Hope you enjoyed it :)!


Have a wonderful and crafty week!



Wildflowers Washi Tape

Hi peeps! Yay for Friday. Vera here to bring some more washi tape inspiration. What can I say, I just love playing with them. Who doesn’t love playing with pretty things, right?

Today I am showcasing Wildflowers washi tape.

For my 1st card, I adhere the washi tape to a piece of soft green cardstock. The beauty of washi tape, you can change its look by the base color you used. Then I die cut the wishes sentiment on the panel using Bold General Greeting Word Plate diesThen, die cut the sweet sentiment from Sweetheart World Plate dies set. Adhere panel to the crd base.

Die cut the wishes sentiment 3 more times from white cardstock to layer the sentiment to make it stand out from the rest of the panel. Die cut sweet sentiment again from gold foil cardstock and adhere to the card. Finish by stamping, heat embossed & die cut a butterfly using Beautiful Butterflies 1 set (adhere it with foam adhesive).

Now, on to the 2nd card. I was inspired by Effie’s card during the release (you can see the post  HERE)

I adhere the washi tape to a piece of  cardstockand then fussy cut it. Before adhering it to the card base, I blended some Rose Quartz ink to the card base. Then I partially ink up the Mini Hearts Cling Background stamp and stamped the corner of the card for a bit of accent. Adhere the cut out, stamp the sentiment from Dearest Peony set and finished by adding some Rose Champagne Sparkle sequins mix.

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. It’s been a pretty crazy hectic week for me, so I sure am looking forward to a quiet weekend to just chill with the doggies. Hope you enjoy today’s inspiration. Have a fabulous weekend everyone! Cheerrrssss……

Floral cards: diffrent ways

Hello, everyone! It’s Anna here today sharing two floral cards.

Here is my first card I made using Today’s Cosmos stamps and dies.


I started off by stamping beautiful flowers and leaves onto a watercolor paper with Versamark Ink and heat embossed them in white. Then, I colored all images using Holbein watercolors and cut them out with Today’s Cosmos Coordinating Dies.


To create the background, I ink blended Hot Tourmaline on a white A2 sized card panel. I stamped sentiment from Magnificent Magnolias in Noir onto it. Next, I adhered all images onto my card and added a few sequins from Blue Lagoon Couture Mix to finish it up.

My next card is showcasing the Wildflowers washi tape which was released yesterday.


At first, I adhered the Wildflowers washi tape on a piece of white cardstock and fussy cut the floral images. Then, I mounted the clusters on the top and on the bottom of the White Natural card base (Neenah). Next, I trimmed the excess.


The sentiment from Hustle and Grind Sentiments was stamped in Caviar. Lastly, I embellished the card using Pink Diamond Couture Mix.

Win one of The Ton’s new washi tapes! Head over to -> HERE<_ for more details.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!

Both of my projects for today are very similar in technique! I applied my washi tape onto cardstock and fussy cut the different floral clusters to make my own custom arrangements.

I even used the edge pieces for my project. For these cutoff images, I tucked them behind my clusters to create an even fuller floral arrangement. Waste not, want not!

For my first card, I used our Pink Peonies washi tape. I started by blending some of our Rose Quartz dye ink onto white cardstock. Then I used the largest die in our Double Stitched Rectangles (Large) die collection to add stitching to the edges of my A2 panel. Next, I splattered white and metallic gold acrylic paint onto my blended panel. Lastly, I arranged my floral clusters and foliage and added some Clear Rhinestones.

For my second card, I stamped our Bare Tones background stamp onto white cardstock to create a subtle background patterned panel. Then I popped up my Wildflowers clusters. For my sentiment, I used our Love and Hugs word die cuts cut from white cardstock. Lastly, I embellished my card with some Glass Slippers sequins.

Announcement + Promotion

Going forward, we will no longer release coordinating dies with our designs. We will also be discontinuing all of our existing coordinating dies and some of our standalone dies (Petal Cut Peonies, Modern Labels, Best Day Coverplate, Lattice Coverplate). So once these products are out of stock, we have no plans of bringing them back in the future. There may be an instance where we find one or two extra sets after we’ve fullfilled all of our orders. In this situation we will temporarily restock that die to clear the rest of our inventory.

This was a very difficult decision to make but once it was done, I felt more positive about The Ton’s future. For us, this is the best solution to adapt to this evolving craft industry.

So since I would like to clear out our coordinating die inventory as quickly as possible, I’m extending our 30% promo once again until this Friday, March 8 at 11:30pm EST. *Restrictions apply* Please note that once these coordinating dies are gone, they are gone.

SHIPPING UPDATE: We have received a large influx of orders due to this promotion. It is a team of two (my mother and I) that is packing and shipping everything. It is taking a little longer for us to fulfill these orders but we are hoping to ship everything out by the end of this week.

Free Gift with Purchase Promotion

  • Receive a Party Fans 4×6 Stamp and Coordinating Die bundle ($26 value) with a qualifying order over $50 (threshold amount). PROMO HAS ENDED.
  • To qualify for this GWP (Gift with Purchase) promo, there MUST be a new washi tape roll in your order and you MUST include “PARTY FANS” in the notes of your order;
  • The threshold amount is calculated before shipping/taxes and AFTER any gift codes or gift certificates are applied.
  • This promo does not apply to prior orders. Can only be combined with our BYEFEB30 promo. This promo only applies to in stock items. Limit one promo package per customer. Promo ends on 3-13-19.


Win one of our newly release new washi tapes! To enter, leave a comment on each blog of the hop. We’ll choose three winners and announce the winners on The Ton’s blog by March 9. The comment period for this giveaway will close on March 8 at 7pm EST.

You’re Beautiful

Hello friends!! Brenda, here with you today!! I think everyone is craving spring and warmer temperatures. We are expecting snow in the Midwest again and highs in the 20 degree range at the beginning of next week. Ugh!! I am so over it!! In the meantime, it is definitely spring in my craft room!! Hopefully these projects brighten your day!!

I have two cards to share with you today!! The first features the Gardenia Wishes stamp set paired with the Sweetheart Word Plate Dies.


I began by stamping the Gardenia Wishes stamp set onto white cardstock with Caviar Ink and colored it with Copic markers. These colors just pop off of the page!! I trimmed the panel with the largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Sm) and adhered it to an A2 sized panel of black cardstock. I cut the sentiment from pink and black cardstock using the Sweetheart Word Plate Dies. A few sequins from the Pink Bokeh and Pink Diamond Couture Mixes add some sparkle!



My second card uses the Special Day Lantern stamp set & Coordinating Dies


I stamped the Special Day Lanterns using the following Couture Inks: Rose Quartz, Red Sangria, Soft Amethyst, Iris Blooms, Soft Garden, Bright Fern and Beach Blondie. I heat embossed the actual lanterns themselves with gold embossing powder, then cut them out with the Special Day Lanterns Coordinating Dies. I used a scoreboard to create an embossed striped pattern onto a panel of white cardstock and adhered it with foam adhesive. The lanterns were also adhered with foam tape. The sentiment, also from Special Day Lanterns, was stamped with Iris Blooms Ink. Lastly, a few Medallion Gold Sequins finish off the card.



That’ll do it for me today!! I hope I’ve brightened your day a bit!!

Have a great weekend!!!

Spring vibes

Hello, everyone! It’s Anna here with two floral cards.

To create my fist card, I used Gardenia Border Cling Background.


I started by stamping the beautiful border with Versamark Ink onto a white cardstock and heat embossed it in Rose Gold. I colored it using Holbein watercolors.

Next, I stamped Bare Tones onto a piece of white cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it in Rose Gold as well. I cut out “BEAUTIFUL” from it with Sweetheart Word Plate Dies. “You’re” was cut out from grey cardstock using die from the same die collection.


I adhered sentiment onto my card and added a few sequins from Raspberry Sparkle Couture Mix.


For my second card, I stamped images from the Happy Place stamp set in Caviar and colored them using my Holbein watercolors. Then, I cut out them with Happy Place Coordinating Dies. To make the background, I stamped Modern Plaid in Crystal Pewter (I used a masking technique).


Next, I added book images to my card and embellished the card with a few sequins from Pink Diamond Couture Mix.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great day!


Best Wishes Cards

Hello! Olga with you today. I made a couple of cards with the same Bold Greeting Word Plate Dies.


I stamped Smiling Cosmos  on the cardstock with Noir Dye for the first card. Then I colored it with Distress Oxide and I cut “best wishes” using Bold Greeting Word Plate Dies. I used it in the second card.


I cut the words repeatedly on the cardstock and glued all layers together. I decorated my card with Glass Slippers Round Confetti.


My next card is very simple. I used the negative of the cut words and letters on the first card. I put all elements together and decorated it with Dew Drops.


Thank you for your attention and best wishes!

Power Pumps & Hustle and Grind

Hello and happy Friday, everyone!

It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of encouragement cards made using Power Pumps and Hustle and Grind Sentiments stamp sets. These two stamp sets go so well together with their vigorous and bold characteristic.

On my first card I used the GORGEOUS Peony Close Up stamp as a backdrop for the pretty red high heel from Power Pumps  stamp set.

TT0222 1 2 WM new

First I stamped the high heel in Lipstick Red and Pink Derby. I stamped the insole and the heel using Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz. I clear heat embossed the base layer of the shoe for some shine and added clear glitter on the insole using a clear glitter pen. I then cut the high heel using the coordinating die.

TT0222 1 CU2 WM

To create the background I watercolored the white heat embossed peony of Peony Close Up on some watercolor paper. I used Peony and Wisteria Color Burst powders. I applied lots of water on the panel and colored petal by petal. I added the vibrant color on the inner end of the petals while leaving the outer end of petals quite bright.

TT0222 1 CU5 WM new

The background panel was cut using Double Stitched Rectangle die and foam mounted on a white cardbase. The sentiment from Hustle and Grind Sentiments set was heat embossed in black on a torn strip of vellum and added to the panel before I adhered it on the cardbase. I then added the high heel using some foam adhesives and embellished the card with some Glass Slippers sequins and Santa’s Sneezes Couture Mix to finish it off.

TT0222 1 4 WM new

For my second high heel I made an alcohol inked panel.

TT0222 2 5 WMx

Here I heat embossed the high heel from Power Pumps in gold and copper. The heel and the insole were stamped in Lipstick Red and I added the shadow layer in Smoky Quartz. The high heel was then cut using the coordinating die.

TT0222 2 CU1 WM

To make the background I used several alcohol inks in red shade. I applied Blending solution first on a glossy cardstock panel and dripped the alcohol ink colors. I blew the ink to blend them, splattered gold mixative on it and let it a bit dry. Before the panel was completely dry I pressed a gold foil on it with the help of a brayer. The foil sticks on the area where the ink is still wet leaving beautiful golden accents.

Tt0222 2 CU3 WM

I white heat embossed the sentiments from Power Pumps and Hustle and Grind Sentiments stamp set on some black cardstock. DREAMS DEMAND HUSTLE is actually one stamp from Hustle and Grind Sentiments set. I cut off each line and added them separately onto the card as shown in the picture. The sentiment in smaller font is from Power Pumps. Some Medallion Gold sequins were my finishing touch.

That’s it from me today. I hope I was able to inspire you with my cards.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I am truly grateful for your lovely comments ❤ !

Wishing you all a restful and crafty weekend!



Power Pumps & Gifted

Good morning everyone!! I have two cards to share with you today that couldn’t be more different! They both use layering stamps, so I guess they have that in common…lol!!

My first project is a graphic black and white card with a pop of red.


I started by stamping the image from Power Pumps with Caviar Ink and embossing with clear embossing powder. I used Smoky Quartz for the highlight and Valentine Red for the sole, then cut the image with the Coordinating Die. For my background panel, I created my own patterned paper by stamping the jewel in the set with Smoky Quartz and Crystal Pewter Couture Inks. The largest and middle dies from the Double Stitch Rectangle Dies (Lg) were used to cut a panel of black and white cardstock. The sentiment, also from Power Pumps, was stamped with Caviar Ink onto the white panel. The pumps were popped up with foam adhesive and some sequins from the Silver Metallic Sequin Couture Mix add some sparkle.



My second card is a birthday card with a rainbow of colors.


For this one, I used Hollywood Star, Beach Blondie and Cali Blue Inks to stamp the single gifts from the Gifted stamp set and cut them out using the Coordinating Dies. I blended the same inks onto a panel of Bristol paper and cut “birthday” from it using the Bold General Greeting Word Plate Dies. “Wishes”, from Special Day Lanterns, was white heat embossed onto a scrap of white paper that I blended Hollywood Star ink onto. For the background, I used the Bare Tones Cling Background stamp with the same three inks, making sure to overlap them a bit. I cut the panel using the largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Sm) and adhered it to the front of a white cardbase. Both the gifts and sentiment were adhered using foam adhesive. A few Glass Slippers Round Confetti pieces add a little bling. A clear Wink of Stella pen add a little shimmer to the ribbon and “birthday” letters.



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


Love card with Cosmos

Hello everyone! Olga with you today!


I created one beautiful card with new Today`s Cosmos stamps set. I stamped the flower on the white cardstock using embossing pad for the beginning. Than I hot embossing it with Gold Powder.


I colored the flowers with watercolor and applied the Coordinating Dies to it. Next step was blending the cardstock with Lipstick Red Dye and applying Geometric Circles Coverplate Die for the background.


I cut “love” of Love and Hugs Plate Dies on the glitter cardstock. I stamped the title of Smooched stamps set with Noir Dye.


I collected all the elements of my card together. I decorated it with watercolor splashes and Pink Bokeh Couture Mix.

Thank you for your attention and have a nice day!!!
