Coloring using Layering Stamps

Hello everyone! And happy Friday!!!  🙂 It’s TaeEun here today with two carnation cards to share with you.

I love gorgeous layering stamps by The Ton. But I’m a coloring addict, as you may already know, and have to color even images from layering stamps 🙂 . For today’s cards I used the third layer of Large Florals: Carnation stamp set as my guide to color the carnations. The carnation on the first card was watercolored using Inktense pencils and the second carnation was colored using Prismacolor colored pencils.

Let’s take a look at my first card!

TheTon1006 2 1WM

To start off I stamped the third layer of the Large Florals: Carnation in Picked Raspberry DI on some Bristol smooth paper. To define the outline of the flower I made a mask of the solid image, masked the flower and blended Crystal Pewter very light around the carnation flower. I then colored the flower using Inktense pencils. They are water soluble colored pencils, which are famous for their vibrant colors. First I drew the outlines of the petals in dark pink and added the darkest shade in the same color. I then blended the color out towards the tip of the petals using a wet brush. I added a little bit of red on some area. For the leaves I stamped the detail layer in green after masking the flower and colored them in blue and green. After the panel was dry, I fussy cut the carnation. The background panel was created by smooshing some green and blue Distress inks on mixed media paper. I added thin strips of Adhesive glitter paper-glossy fine silver on both sides of the panel and glued it flat on the soft pink cardbase.

I then foam mounted a square frame, cut with Double Stitched Square dies from a silver glitter panel made using  Adhesive glitter paper-glossy fine silver and added the flower using foam adhesives. The sentiment is from Penned Sentiments set. I white heat embossed it on a strip of black cardstock and added it onto the card. I used clear and Seaglass blue Dew Drops to embellish my card.

On my next card I used Black magic coloring technique (here gray magic? 🙂 ).

TheTon1006 1 3WM

I chose a gray cardstock for my next carnation. To color on a gray panel I first stamped the solid image in Hampton white pigment ink. After the white pigment ink was dry I stamped the third layer in Soft Garnet on the solid image. With the third layer as my guide I sketched the outlines of the petals using dark pink Prismacolor pencil and then started to color the carnation. I colored the leaves in various cool gray pencils and added shades around the carnation in gray too. I then created a bokeh background using Hampton white pigment ink and circle stencils. I narrowed down the gray panel while leaving the leaves , adhered thin strips of Adhesive glitter paper-glossy fine silver on both sides and mounted the panel flat on the soft pink cardbase.

TheTon1006 1 CUWM

The sentiment from Penned Sentiments was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock. The other part of the sentiment was stamped in Hampton white pigment underneath the black sentiment strip. To finish off I scattered some sequins from New Year and Spotlight Couture Mix.

Magnolias – Alcohol Ink Coloring – Video

Hello, everyone! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a floral card colored using alcohol ink with you. Did you enjoy our Fall Release last week ? Aren’t the new stamp sets awesome? I love them all, but the floral sets including one of my favorite flowers, magnolias have stolen my heart.

For today’s post I’ve created a CAS one layer card using Magnificent Magnolias. The large floral images of this set are great for alcohol ink coloring.

Theton0915 WM

I started off by silver heat embossing the magnolias on a glossy cardstock. I then colored the magnolias by dripping the alcohol inks on the image. I tilted the paper to move the inks to the direction I wanted. I used Flamingo and Shell Pink for the flowers, and Limeade and Hazelnut for the stems. To create the soft background I applied the rubbing alcohol first and then added Aqua and Pool alcohol ink drops on it and moved the inks to the area I wanted to color. After the panel was completely dry, I stamped the sentiment ‘Many Thanks’ from Large Florals: Carnation in black archival ink and silver heat embossed the small sentiment from Occasion Confetti. I mounted the panel on my light blue cardbase and scattered some Glass Slippers Round Confetti onto the card to finish it off.

TheTon0915 CU8WM

As some of you wanted to see how I color using alcohol inks, I’ve filmed the coloring process. The most important part in this method is to control the amount of alcohol inks to stay inside of the embossed image, which is actually very hard. But there is no reason for discouraging yourself, as the alcohol inks are very forgiving as well. Hope you’ll enjoy my video and give this coloring technique a try!

Eagles Fly Alone

Hello everyone!!! Hope your week is going well so far! It’s TaeEun here today with an encouragement card! The first day of the new school year is just around the corner (at least where I am 🙂 )! So I thought some of our younger friends need a good amount of encouragement to start off their new chapter !

For today’s card I used Eagle, Mountains and Thoughtful Poppies.

TheTon0824 4WM

To create the silver eagle I die cut the eagle from some white cardstock using coordinating die. I then silver heat embossed the third layer of the body, detail layer of the tail and head and solid layer of the feet. The eye, mouth and the claws were stamped in Noir. The mountain was die cut using coordinating die from some black cardstock. I stamped the third layer on it in Hampton white pigment ink. I stamped it twice with the help of Misti tool to make it brighter. The second layer was stamped in Hampton white pigment ink as well, but this time only once, so that the layers could be seen.

TheTon0824 CU3WM

The Thoughtful Poppies was silver heat embossed on some watercolor paper, colored using Brusho powders and die cut with coordinating die.  I then prepared the dark red cardbase. I wanted an ombre look of it, so I blended Dark Roast, Spiced Chai and Pink Derby on the upper third of the cardbase. The sentiment is from Eagle set. I heat embossed it in silver on the cardbase. To assemble my card I glued the mountain flat on the cardbase and foam mounted the eagle and the poppy cluster onto the card. I cut out the poppies along the edge of the card. Some sequins from Spotlight Couture mix and Glossy Black sequins mix were my finishing touch!

Purple and Blue

Hello and happy Thursday, everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful week so far!  It’s TaeEun here today! I’m sharing a mermaid card decorated with some of our mini floral stamp sets. And I chose purple and blue as my main colors for today’s card.

I used Floral Banner Mini, Anemone Cluster Mini and Pragmatic Wreaths  for my card along with our newest stamp set Mermaid Vibes.

Let’s take a look at my card 🙂 !

TheTon0817 8WM

To start off I heat embossed the Anemone Cluster Mini two times on the bottom part of my watercolor panel in Rose Gold. I masked them and heat embossed the mermaid on the center of the panel in Rose Gold as well. I then masked the mermaid to stamp the wreath from Pragmatic Wreaths in embossing ink. I heat embossed the wreath using Verdigris embossing powder and stamped the flowers in blue and purple using some Aquamarkers. I covered the upper area of the panel with a print paper while I was stamping the wreath. I like that the wreath looks like a swing :).

TheTon0817 CU1WM

I heat embossed one more Anemone Cluster Mini and Floral Banner Mini on some extra watercolor paper in Rose Gold. After all the stamping and heat embossing were done, I started coloring the images using Zig Brush markers. I didn’t go into the details while I was coloring and colored the images in a loose style. To blend the colors I used clear glitter pen, so it is very shimmery in real life. I stamped the sentiment on the Floral Banner Mini in Noir and die cut the banner using coordinating die. I die cut the extra Anemone Cluster Mini as well with its coordinating die.

I then started assembling my card. I narrowed down the front panel slightly and added thin strips of purple glitter tape on both sides, before I foam mounted it on a purple cardbase. I foam mounted the die cut Anemone Cluster Mini and the Floral Banner Mini onto the places. To finish off I added some mini clear sequins from Violet Sprinkle Couture Mix to the wreath.

I hope you enjoyed today’s floral mermaid card!

Soft Floral Cards

Hello crafty friends! Hope you’re having a wonderful week so far!  It’s TaeEun here today with two soft floral cards.

For the first card I combined Watercolor Wreaths and Peony Terrace Cling background stamp as they have the same watercolor look. For my second card I created a clean and dreamy composition of florals and greenery using City Girls Book Life, Wild Peonies and Mini Wild Florals stamp sets.

Let’s take a look at my cards :)!

TheTon0727 1 2WM

To create my first card I started by die cutting the floral wreath from Watercolor Wreath from a Bristol Smooth paper panel using coordinating die. I then taped the negative panel together to heat emboss the Peony Terrace on it in some white pearl embossing powder. I then stamped the floral wreath from Watercolor Wreath using Aquamarkers on the positive die cut. I colored the flowers on the stamp in pink or yellow and the leaves in green and stamped it. I then added details using Prismacolor pencils. The sentiment in Noir is from Penned Sentiments set which was stamped on a silver heat embossed banner from Basic Banners. I die cut the banner using coordinating die. To assemble my card I foam mounted the negative panel on a gray cardbase and placed the wreath, first a fun foam die cut and then the colored die cut. The fun foam is thicker than my foam adhesive, so that the wreath is popped up slightly over the front panel. I then adhered the banner. To finish off I went over the flowers with a Spectrum Noir clear sparkle marker and added a few Glass Slippers Round Confetti around the wreath.

You can see the shimmer on the Peony Terrace background and the glitter on the wreath better in close up picture below.

TheTon0727 1 CU2WM

My second card was made, inspired by the sentiment from Sunnies set. “You wake up fabulous.” Hope you can see what I wanted to represent 🙂 .

TheTon0727 2 2WM

To start off I stamped small greenery stamps from Wild Peonies and Mini Wild Florals stamp sets on a A2 sized white cardstock. The colors I used are Caribbean Turquoise, Bright Emerald, Cobalt Breeze and Ocean Teal.. I then stamped the lady from Born Classy in Caviar Hybrid ink on that panel and die cut it using coordinating die. I colored her with Copic markers. I added Ocean Teal on the bottom edge of the front panel by blending. I stamped the flower bouquet from City Girls Book Life set on a separate white cardstock, colored it with Copic markers as well and die cut it with coordinating die.  I then cut the part with two hands out and glued the bouquet on the hair of the lady. The sentiment from Sunnies was gold heat embossed on a strip of vellum. I adhered both ends of the vellum strip on the back of the front panel and mounted the panel flat on a white cardbase. The lady was foam mounted onto her place on the front panel. A coat of glitter was added on the flower bouquet and on the dress using Spectrum Noir clear sparkle marker. To finish off I added some sequins from Smoked Emerald Sparkling Clear Sequins mix.

Red, Black and Gold

And a little bit of green :)!

Hello and happy Thursday everyone! Hope you are having a nice week so far! It’s TaeEun here today sharing two poppy cards in color scheme red, black and gold with you! I used the Thoughtful Poppies from our 2017 anniversary release and the Poppy Border stamp from the Summer release.

For my first card I watercolored Thoughtful Poppies, which is heat embossed in gold.

TheTon0713 1 5WM

To start off I heat embossed Thoughtful Poppies on a Canson watercolor paper in gold and colored it with Gansai Tambi watercolor. After I die cut the image with the coordinating die I colored the white edge in black using a black Copic marker. The black card base was prepared by splattering gold watercolor and adding three thin strips of Adhesive foil paper gold on the bottom part of it. To add the nest of the gold thread I cut the upper edge of the big poppy flower with a craft knife and put the thread behind the poppy. The poppy cluster was foam mounted onto the card. The sentiment and the banner are from Basic Banners stamp set. I gold heat embossed them on some vellum , die cut with the coordinating die and glued it on the card.

TheTon0713 1 CU3WM

The second card is a shaker card. Our border stamps have the coordinating dies which cut the inside of the border. It’s very easy to create unique shaker cards using them.

TheTon0713 2 1WM

I started off by gold heat embossing the Poppy Border on some black cardstock and die cutting the inside using coordinating die. I wanted to have some red on my front panel. So I stamped a big poppy on the corner on some white cardstock in Vanilla Frosted Cupcake and colored it using Copic markers. I then gold heat embossed it with the help of MISTI tool. I fussy cut the poppy and glued it flat on my front panel where the same poppy was. I added glitter on the image using Spica glitter pen and clear Wink of Stella. I cut a red fun foam smaller than A2 size and die cut the Poppy border again from it to make the well for the shaker elements. I then assembled my shaker card by adding sequins from Medallion Gold, Glossy Black sequins mix and Santa’s Sneezes Couture Mix on the dark red card base.

TheTon0713 2 CU3WM

The hugs word die was cut three times from some black cardstock and once from a white cardstock which I colored in ombre red with Copic markers. On the red die cut I added double coat of clear embossing.  I gold heat embossed one black die cut to add it underneath the red one. I stack them all up, the red die cut slightly off set, and glued it onto my card.

Happy Father’s Day

Hello and happy Father’s Day to daddies!!! I think there must be some who stop by The Ton blog, right :)? It’s TaeEun here today. I have two cards made using some of our new products from Summer 2017 Release to share with you.

We have released some gorgeous layering stamp sets like Eagle , Beer, Mountains and Wave, which work great for masculine designs. For today I’ve made a Father’s day card using Mountains stamp set and the sentiment from Beer.

TheTon0618 1 1WM

To start off I drew the blue sky on some watercolor paper with blue Distress inks and added the clouds with opaque white watercolor. Set it aside, I then stamped the mountain layers in Soft Garden, Deep Emerald and Everglade Moss and fussy cut it. The airplane and the hanging banner are from City Girls Park Life stamp set. I silver heat embossed them on a shimmer cardstock and die cut them using Coordinating dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on the banner in Noir. I then started assembling my card. The sky panel was glued flat on the card base, the mountain, airplane and the banner were added using foam adhesives. The bold sentiment is from Beer stamp set. I stamped it in Noir on a strip of shimmer cardstock and added it to the card. To finish off I adhered three Silver Dew Drops on the right upper corner.

TheTon0618 1 CU1WM

For my next card I wanted to watercolor our beautiful Summer Blooms 🙂 ! I enjoyed a quite relaxing coloring time and this is the result!

TheTon0618 2 1WM

I stamped the floral cluster from Summer Blooms on some Bristol Smooth paper. I used Distress inks for stamping as I wanted to do no-line watercoloring. I colored the image using Zig Brush markers. After done with coloring I cut it with Coordinating die. As the colors I used for my flowers are rather light, I decided to put them on a dark background. I chose a textured purple cardstock and splattered some blue and silver pearl watercolor on it. I die cut four half circle lines, which is a part of the Pragmatic Wreaths , from some silver cardstock. On the card base I stamped Minor Stripes in Grape Crush. I then foam mounted the purple panel, added the wreath die cuts to embellish the panel and foam mounted the Summer Blooms. I die cut the sentiment using hugs word die from silver cardstock, on which I adhered Glossy fine Transparent adhesive glitter paper. This transparent adhesive glitter paper is awesome, as you can create a glitter paper in any color! To finish off I scattered some sequins from Valentine Icing, Pink Diamond and Royal Garden Party.

By the way the backdrop on my pictures is the backdrop board Bokeh Glow from our Boutique!

Daisies

Hello and happy Thursday everyone! It’s TaeEun here today!

I’ve made two floral cards to share with you using Fresh Cut Sunflowers coordinating Outlines stamp set. But I turned the sunflowers into pink and purple daisies! I so wanted to color the sunflower images in other colors than yellow. I decided to pretend they are daisies, so I could color them in rainbow colors 🙂 !

First I colored the flowers from Fresh Cut Sunflowers coordinating Outlines stamp set with Copic markers and added details using Polychromos colored pencils. Btw we have Polychromos pencils in Boutique section in The Ton shop, if you need some! I stamped the flowers in Ballet Slippers and the leaves in Soft Garden. For the first card I drew the long stem. I then die cut the flowers using Coordinating dies and fussy cut the greenery.

Set the colored images aside, I prepared two different backgrounds.

TheTon0525 1 6WM

To make the background for my first card, I started off by white heat embossing the rectangle frame from Modern labels stamp set several times on a watercolor card stock. I then colored the panel in yellow and blue using smooshing technique and splattered some purple ink. After the panel was dry, I foam mounted the background panel on the card base, attached the stem on that, and adhered the flowers using some foam adhesives.

TheTon0525 1 CUWM

The butterfly is from Beautiful Butterflies 3. I white heat embossed it on some watercolor paper, colored it with Zig brush markers and die cut with Coordinating die. I borrowed the sentiment from Dearest Peony stamp set, which I white heat embossed on a strip of purple card stock. The butterfly and the sentiment strip were foam mounted. To finish off I scattered some sequins from Kiwi Smoothie and Summer Skies Couture Mix.

TheTon0525 2 1WM

For my second card I used the Chandelier as an embellishment to place my flowers on it. I stamped the Chandelier in embossing ink, heat embossed it in Rose Gold and cut it with Coordinating die. I die cut one more chandelier from a purple fun foam and glued it underneath the rose gold chandelier. I adhered a A2 sized panel of a silver card stock on my card base and placed the chandelier on the center of the panel.

TheTon0525 2 3WM

I then arranged the flowers and leaves as shown in the picture. I foam mounted the big flower for some more dimension. The sentiment was cut from a black card stock on which I adhered Adhesive transparent Glitter paper. I foam mounted the hello die cut using tiny foam adhesives. I finished off the card by adding tiny clear sequins from Amethyst Quartz Couture Mix on the chandelier.

Floral Shaker Cards

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great week so far 🙂 ! It’s TaeEun here today with two floral shaker cards. Using beautiful floral stamps and coordinating dies you can assemble a shaker card easier than you might think!!!

I’ve picked Wildflower Banner and Large Peony3 for my cards.

Let’s take a look at my first card.

TheTon0511 1 1WM

To start off I’ve made the alcohol ink background panel on Yupo paper. I sprayed rubbing alcohol on Yupo and added alcohol inks on it by dripping and spread them by blowing. I used pink, yellow and green shades, as I planed to color the florals in the same color scheme. Set the alcohol ink panel aside, I stamped Wildflower Banner on a Bristol smooth paper in embossing ink and heat embossed it in gold. I colored it using Zig brush markers and clear glitter pen. Did you know that we have a Boutique section in our shop where you can buy the Zig brush markers and glitter pens as well? The sentiment is from Wildflower Banner stamp set as well. I stamped it in Noir and clear heat embossed it for some shine.  I die cut the image with Coordinating die and once again from a white fun foam. The frame was cut using two of the Double Stitched Rectangle dies (Large) from Adhesive foil paper gold and from a white fun foam as well.

TheTon0511 1 CU1WM

Now it’s time to assemble the shaker card! I adhered a piece of clear acetate under the frame and the Wildflower Banner image using Liquid glue and then the die cut fun foam underneath. I put Belle’s Dress and Guava Sparkle Couture Mix into the wells and mounted the background panel. To finish off I added some dots on the flower centers using Pico embellisher.

TheTon0511 1 5WM

On the second card I used coordinating dies to make a shaker window.

TheTon0511 2 4WM

First I die cut a A2 sized watercolor cardstock with the Coordinating dies for the large peony and a leave from Large Peony3 as shown in the picture. I left the right edge uncut so that I can build the well for the shaker elements. I stamped and gold heat embossed the image on the positive die cuts and colored them with Zig brush markers. I mounted the peony and the leave on my card base.  I then colored the negative die cut panel with some Distress inks and splattered gold watercolor.

TheTon0511 2 CU1WM

To assemble the shaker card I added the clear acetate sheet and foam adhesives under the front panel, put Medallion Gold sequins mix, Princess Glam, Violet Sprinkle and I Dream in Peach Couture Mix in the shaker window and mounted the card base with the colored images on the front part of the shaker card. I die cut the sentiment from Adhesive foil paper gold using hugs word die and added some branch cut with Petal Cut Peonies Standalone dies which I colored with gold watercolor. To finish off I added a strip of pink glitter tape on the right edge.

Sunflowers

Hello and happy Friday everyone! It’s TaeEun here today to share three sunflower cards with you.

For The Ton’s Spring 2017 Release Effie designed another gorgeous layering floral stamp set and Garden cling background stamp featuring Sunflowers: Fresh Cut Sunflowers and Sunflower Garden cling stamp. As it gets warm here in northern hemisphere, these stamp sets provide perfect images for cards sending sunshine to recipients :).

On my first card I’ve created DIY background using layered sunflowers.

TheTon0421 1 6WM

To start off I stamped the sentiment from Fresh Cut Sunflowers in Noir. I then started stamping the first solid layer to fill the A2 panel along with masking. I used Lemon Drop, Amber Citrine and Lofty mint. I stamped the second layer with the same ink. It is hard to see in the picture but IRL you can see the subtle layering. I then stamped the flower centers using the inks from Cocoa Collection. The third layer of sunflowers was heat embossed in gold for some shine :)! I filled in the empty area with some sequins from Belle’s Dress and Hot Cocoa Couture Mix.

Theton0421 1 CU3WM

The main image of my next two cards is Sunflower Garden cling stamp.

TheTon0421 2 2WM

On my second card for today I heat embossed the Sunflower Garden in multicolor using yellow, green and gold embossing powder on a yellow cardstock. I then colored the image with Prismacolor pencils. (Btw in The Ton’s shop we have now Boutique section, where you can find crafting supplies like colored pencils.) I made a panel with a piece of Adhesive foil paper Gold from which I cut out the outline of the big sunflower of the Sunflower Garden with a cutting machine and foam mounted it on the colored panel. The sentiment is from Macarons set. I gold heat embossed it on a dark brown cardstock and added it on the card on a nest of golden thread. To finish off I scattered some sequins from Medallion Gold Sequins.

TheTon0421 2 CU1WM

My last card was made using spotlight coloring technique.

TheTon0421 3 3WM

First I stamped the Sunflower Garden in embossing ink on a white cardstock and heat embossed it in silver. I then die cut the panel with three dies of the Double Stitched Square dies so that I got four parts of my panel cut. I then colored the central square and a frame using acrylic paints as shown in the picture. I glued the uncolored parts flat on the card base and added the colored parts using some foam adhesives. The sentiment is from Chandelier stamp set. I silver heat embossed it on a strip of black cardstock, added a mat of Glossy fine silver adhesive Glitter paper and mounted it on the card. Finishing touch for this card was some beautiful Dew Drops.
