Motorcycle Boss

Hello crafty friends! Hope you’re having a great week so far!  It’s TaeEun here today with a card featuring Motorcycle Boss from our March flash release. It is a great stamp set for masculine projects or for Father’s day!

Motorcycle Boss 4x6 Clear

I combined the cool motorcycle with the beautiful Always Cherry Blossoms image to create a scene of a motorcycle ride in a Spring day :). It’s already Mid-April but I’m still waiting for Spring to come here where I live.

I started off by watercoloring the cherry blossom tree cluster and a single flower falling down from Always Cherry Blossoms set. For no line watercoloring I stamped the image in Ballet Slippers (flowers) and Vanilla Frosted Cupcake (branch and leaves). I colored the dark background first in payne’s gray and gold and then watercolored the flowers and leaves.  I colored the bottom part of the panel in payne’s gray to represent the ground.

I splattered black and gold onto the panel. After the panel was dry I cut it using a Double Stitched Rectangle dieMotorcycle Boss set contains some unique sentiments. I picked one of them and stamped it on the bottom of the panel in Noir.

In the picture below you can see the shine of the golden elements!

I then mounted the background panel on a dark gray cardbase. At that time I took a picture of the panel as I thought it could be a beautiful floral card as it is :)! What do you think?

I gold heat embossed the motorcycle, colored it in opera pink, cut it using coordinating die and foam mounted it onto the card. For more contrast I added on the flower center and stamen dots using black and white glaze pens. To finish off I added some Glass Slippers sequins.

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

Wishing you all a beautiful Spring/Autumn day!



Hello Gorgeous

Welcome to The Tons Stamps blog, The Season! We are so glad you have popped in for a visit today. For this post I’d, Janette, like to share with you Hello Gorgeous. It is a combination of Always Cherry Blossoms and Marvelous Perfumes.


I began by stamping Always Cherry Blossoms in Cosmopolitan Hybrid Ink and Marvelous Perfumes in Versamark to heat set in Gold Tinsel embossing powder. I broke out the oldies, but goodies, Twinkling H2O’s. They are super shimmery watercolors each in their own little pot. I used them to color both stamped images.


I carried the sparkle to the background by continuing with the Twinkling H2O’s. I used a white shimmer and added gentle color with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers in Persian Blue and Deep Violet by coloring into the wet shimmer. Never enough sparkle, right?!?


While the background was drying I die cut the blossoming branch and perfume bottle. For the final touches I stamped “Hello Gorgeous” in Noir, added Dew Drops and Glass Slipper Sequins after tucking the bottle into the branches and adhering.

Photography just doesn’t capture the shimmer going on here. It is impressive. I’ll be writing a sweet sentiment on the inside, reminding someone special how beautiful they are, and wishing them a snail mail Happy Mother’s Day.

And that I wish for you too!

Love and hugs to all those moms out there. To the ones who are biologically and those who chose to be otherwise, may it be for pets, siblings, or neighborhood kids. Kudos, amazing mamas – you deserve the whole week!

xo, Janette


After Dinner Mints.

So, I love pastels. My house is entirely made up of cool pastels. Some would (and have) called it the Easter Egg house, probably to tease me. I prefer the after-dinner mint house, but to each his own. After my foray into mint and pink with my baby card for my last post, I wanted to continue with the pastel trend this week. I’ve been playing along with #thedailymarker30day challenge, and these panels both were created during my (extremely therapeutic) daily coloring sessions. (If you haven’t been playing along, you totally should, because it’s amazing.)

The Ton mint and pink cherry blossom WM

This first project uses the stunning Always Cherry Blossoms set. One of my favorite elements of The Ton’s stamp sets is that they usually come with outline stamps in addition to the solid stamps, so you can do as much or as little work as you like. Coloring is one of the things I do to relax, so I obviously opt for the line drawn option as often as possible. I started by heat embossing that lovely cherry blossom branch using The Ton’s Rose Gold Embossing Powder. (I seriously want to rose gold all the things, specifically rose gold all the flowers! That EP is fabulous.) I added a few cherry blossoms gently floating down the card front. After all of the floral heat embossing was finished, it was time to do some watercoloring. I used Distress Inks in Spun Sugar and Cracked Pistachio for the watercoloring. The background was done a littler differently, with my Twinkling H2o pearlescent watercolor pots. It has such a pretty pinky, minty sheen in real life. (Insert heart eyes here!) Once I had finished that, I heat embossed the sentiment from Bokeh Burst Round onto some vellum, again using the Rose Gold EP, then fussy cutting and popping it up. A few sequins (Glass Slippers, Pastel Pink, and Wedding Dress) finished it off.

The Ton mint and pink peony border WM

For my next project, I stamped one of my absolute favorite stamps from The Ton: Floral Border, again using the Rose Gold Embossing Powder. In order to combat the somewhat splotchy finished product when heat embossing on watercolor paper, I went over the solid flowers with my Versamark pen and filled in the splotchy sections. Easy peasy. I colored the flowers in three different shades of pink using my Zig markers and a wet painbrush, then coloring in the leaves with shades of dark teal. I then shaded the entire panel with my Cool Green Shadow Zig marker. I love the kind of shabby chic feel the pink and mint and rose gold have. Plus, this gorgeous Floral Border stamp does all of the hard work of masking and layering to create that marvelous border for you.

The Ton mint and pink peony border detail WM

Now, for the greeting. I didn’t want to cover up any of that pretty minty center, nor did I want to cover any of the pretty pink peonies… so my solution was to die cut the “fabulous” right from the watercolored panel. I ended up die cutting the word four times, once with the watercolored panel, and three more times from mint green card stock, in order to glue them together to create a dimensional die cut. The “get well soon” and “friend” were from the Basic Labels set and stamped with Cosmopolitan Pink ink. I laid down my dimensional die cut within the die cut of the watercolored panel, then popped up the labels with dimensional adhesive. The last step was to add some Rose Gold, Dusty Pink Matte, and My Tutu sequins.

Here they are together. Nothing quite so pretty and feminine as pink and mint together, eh? And the combo with Rose Gold…. well, it’s just so lovely. Happy August! (BTW- holy moly it’s AUGUST. Where did the summer go!?) I hope you enjoyed these pretty, summery projects! Have a fantastic week! 🙂
