Fresh Finds

Hello, Happy Monday!  Mayline here with some simple and clean cards that I made.

Did you know The Ton has a planner stamp set called Scheduled for decorating your planners? Look at the adorable icons ❤ There is no rule that this stamp set must only be used for decorating your planner.  Why not to use it to create a card? Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 7.03.02 PM

For the first card, I used our Scheduled planner stamp set and Shoe Wardrobe 2d. Ed. outline which is one of my favourite stamp sets from our most recent release. For the inks, I used pigment ink in Plumberry, Tutti Frutti, Piggy Bank, and Blush from Mama Elephant.

Here is a second card with a similar design. I love the arrows’ dynamic movement toward the bottom which leads people’s eyes to focus on the small bag at the bottom.

I stamped the icons from our Scheduled planner stamp set and the sentiments are from our I Got You stamp set. I used Mama Elephant pigment ink in Plumberry, Stargazer and Buttercup.

Stretch Your Planner Stamp Sets and Our First Youtube Video!

heart cluster 1

Hey everyone!! Today’s post is all about stretching your planner stamp sets.  There are all these small adorable icons in all the planner sets out there (including our own – Scheduled Planner stamp set).

Our Scheduled Stamp set has more than 10 fabulous icons that you can create chic backgrounds with.  Use either the tiny heart, buggy, stunnah shades (this might be my favorite) or the little brown bag to create a repeating polka dot style background.

Here is the Clustered Heart card that I made using the tiny heart stamp in our Scheduled stamp set.  I used Avery Elle’s pigment inks in Raspberry and Orchid and Tsukineko’s Brilliance pigment ink in Pearlescent Orchid.  The sentiment is from our Vintage Frames stamp set.  I chose the “love” and “you” from this set because they were small and simple and went with the overall simplicity of the card design.

The basic heart background I created in a polka dot pattern took me less than 5 minutes to make!  These notecards are perfect for mass producing and fun and bright ink colors.  You don’t even have to include a sentiment on the front of these notecards!

heart cluster 6The first card in my video was a little more involved because I die cut the patterned card panel.  I also stamped the sentiment and die cut that portion into a small circle. I popped everything up on a card base at the end.  The hearts in this card was stamped in Tsukineko’s Brilliance pigment ink in Pearlescent Purple.  The sentiment (which was from the Vintage Frames set) was stamped in Victorian Velvet.
