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.

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.

Fountain Terrace

Hello and happy Tuesday everyone! Hope your week has started well! It’s TaeEun here today. I’m sharing two cards with you which I made with the focus on the Scenes: Fountain Terrace cling stamp.

I made two almost-one-layer cards with the Scenes: Fountain Terrace. On my first card I created a poppy field in a park using Fresh Cut Poppies outline. And on the second card I water colored the scene as my main image. I chose the sentiment from Beautiful Day Bicycle, just the right sentiment for the scene of a peaceful park.

TheTon0324 1 WM

To start off my first card I stamped and colored the poppy field first. I stamped the poppies in Coralline hybrid and the leaves in Soft Garden along with masking when needed. I then colored the image with Copic markers and added some shine on the poppies using a clear glitter pen. The Scenes: Fountain Terrace was stamped in Crystal Pewter after masking the poppy field. I added the sentiment from  Beautiful Day Bicycle in Noir. I glued the panel on a black card base, a thin part of it showing on the left edge. I finished off by adding some sequins from Valentine Frosting, Elf Stockings Couture Mix and Glass Slippers sequins mix.

TheTon0324 1 CU2WM

TheTon0324 2 WM

For the second card I stamped the Scenes: Fountain Terrace on a mixed media paper using Aqua markers in brown and in green on the trees. I colored the scene using Zig brush markers. I drew some clouds in the sky. I then die cut the panel with Double Stitched Rectangle dies. I used the biggest die, but as I wanted to make the panel slightly smaller than A2, I cut it once again after shifting the die slightly to one corner. You can use our Double Stitched Rectangle small die set which contains in-between sizes. The sentiment was stamped in ombre using True Navy and Ocean Teal. I foam mounted the panel on a navy card base. I liked this as is, so left it without any embellishment.

2017 Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Coffeebloghop

Hi everyone!   It’s TaeEun here with a very special post. We are so excited to join the super fun 2017 Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  The Ton is proud to be a super sponsor and flash sponsor for this hop. You can link up your newly created coffee, tea, and/or cocoa projects with Spring theme for a chance to win many prizes, including three (3) $10 gift certificates to The Ton!

This hop runs from Friday, March 24 – Friday, March 31. Winners will be announced on Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog on Sunday, April 2nd. See all the details HERE.

I made a card using our Tea Party stamp set as main element and added a bouquet of roses using small rose image included in the Scripty Alpha Lower stamp set to give the card a fresh and warm feeling of the Spring 🙂 .

Coffee 1WM

As I wanted water color the images, I used Bristol smooth paper. I stamped the tea cup set on the right with polka dot first in embossing ink and heat embossed them using Rose Gold embossing powder. After masking the first set, I stemped the mirror image of the cup on the left using the Mirror stamp. I used for this a black pigment ink so that I could heat emboss the cup in Rose Gold as well. I heat embossed the rose pattern on the second cup in rose gold. I masked the cup, then stamped and heat embossed the saucer.

To create the rose bouquet in the vase I used several stamp sets. The vase is from Lone Poppy, stamped in Crystal Pewter. The roses are from the Scripty Alpha Lower stamp set. I stamped three roses, two in Coralline Hybrid and one in Vanilla Frosted Cupcake (I stamped it without cleaning the stamp after using it with Coralline, so that it looks yellow-orange.). To stamp the stems and leaves I masked the roses. I borrowed the stem from Fresh Cut Garden Roses, stamped using Soft Garden and Bright Fern. The leaves are from the Wild Peonies stamp set.

After done with stamping, I colored the image using Zig brush markers and blended Coralline Hybrid and Vanilla Frosted Cupcake on the bottom part of the card. The sentiment is from the Caffeine Crush set. I stamped it in Noir on some white cardstock and again in embossing ink to clear heat emboss it. I cut it in a fishtail banner and matted it with a orange strip I made by blending Coralline Hybrid.

Coffee CU1WM

To assemble the card I cut the front panel using the biggest Double Stitched Rectangle die. To trim the left edge I positioned the die slightly to the right and cut the panel again. I added a strip of rose gold glitter tape on the left edge of the card base and glued the panel flat on it. The sentiment was foam mounted. I finished off the card by adding a few sequins from Flamenco Sunset, I Dream in Peach, Cinderella’s Ride Couture Mix and Glass Slippers sequins mix.

I hope you enjoyed my card today. Don’t forget to hop over to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog with a cup of coffee, tea or cocoa ready in your hand 🙂 , as there are so many other participants playing along in this hop.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Hopping!

Dahlia Close Up

Hello and happy Friday, everyone! It’s TaeEun here today with two cards made using Dahlia Close Up cling stamp. I’ve been seeing many fabulous creations using this stamp on social media and I love this stamp set too like you all 🙂 !

On the first card I used the Dahlia Close Up as the background for my main actress from Born Classy stamp set and on the second card I took the big dahlia as my main image.

This is my first card!

TheTon0310 1 3WM

To start off I stamped the Dahlia Close Up in embossing ink on a glossy cardstock and heat embossed it in silver. I dripped pink alcohol inks on it (I used Raspberry, Flamingo, Shell pink and blending solution), to move the ink I tilted the paper or blew through a straw. After done with coloring I went with a silver gel pen over the image lines to cover the ink on the heat embossing. The lady from Born Classy was stamped in Cavier hybrid ink on some white cardstock and colored with Copics. I then fussy cut the lady. I cut the image along the waist line as I wanted the background to peek through the vellum gown. I stamped the lady and the over layer of the gown on a vellum. I then fussy cut the gown part only to glue them on the lady after I silver heat embossed the sparkle.

I added a strip of thin Black Glitter Tape on the right edge of my card base, glued the colored panel with dahlia flat on it and added the lady. I gave her a glass of champagne with lots of glitter and shine of clear glitter pen and clear Pico Embellisher.

TheTon0310 1 CUWM

The sentiment is from Born Classy stamp set as well. I stamped it in Noir on some white cardstock and heat embossed it clear. I cut it in a banner, layered with a cardstock covered with black Glitter Tape and foam mounted it on the card. To finish off I scattered a few tiny flowers from Candy cane Garden and Cotton Candy Puff Couture Mixes.

TheTon0310 2 4WM

My second card was started with a trial to color silver heat embossed Dahlia Close Up on a black cardstock using Pearl colors. I used red violet and blue pearl. After coloring I cut the panel with my cutting machine using a cutting file I made for the shape as shown in the picture and foam mounted it on my card base. On the card base I splattered the same pearl colors and black ink. I made one more cutting file with similar wavy line for the sentiment, cut it from a clear acetate sheet and silver heat embossed the sentiment from The New Pretty on it. I added silver line on the edge using Sharpie pen and glued it on the card.

TheTon0310 2 CU1WM

The sequins I used are from Garden at Dusk, Midnight Frost Couture Mixes and Glass Slippers sequins. I added three Silver Dew Drops and finished off the card.

Coral and Gray

Hello everyone! I hope your week is off to a good start! It’s TaeEun here. Today I have three floral cards in coral and gray color combination to share with you.

I think coral and gray is a beautiful and elegant color combination. It was on my to-do list for a while and finally I decided to give it a try on my cards for this post. I used Coral Collection and Pewter Collection of Couture Colors for this color combination.

For my first card I used Fresh Cut Garden Roses as my floral element and Geometric Lattice Cling stamp for the background.

theton0227-2wm

I started off by stamping the roses from Fresh Cut Garden Roses in layer using Coral Collection inks and the foliage in gray using Pewter Collection inks. I die cut them all out using coordinating dies  and set them aside. For my background I used emboss resist technique. I stamped  Geometric Lattice cling background stamp in embossing ink on some watercolor paper and clear heat embossed it. I tapped a bit of Peach Blossom and Crystal Pewter  dye ink on some clear acetate sheet, added a spritz of water and applied the colors on my background panel (ink “Smooshing” technique). I then added some ink splatters in Peach Blossom. But the “smooshed”colors were too light for me so I decided to go with ink blending over it. After I blended Peach BlossomCrystal Pewter  and Smoky Quartz on the clear heat embossed background panel, I cut a rectangle frame using Double Stitched Rectangle dies from it and blended more gray inks on the frame, keeping the right bottom corner darker. To place the roses I created a small circle window and a circle frame blended in Crystal Pewter using Double Stitched Circle dies. I blended Peach Blossom ink on the card base where the circle window would lie on. To assemble all the elements, first I foam mounted the rectangle frame and then adhered the front panel flat on the card base after I arranged the roses peeking out from the circle window. The sentiment is from the Fresh Cut Poppies Outline stamp set. I stamped it in Light Onyx on a piece of card stock on which I blended Peach Blossom and Crystal Pewter  inks as well. To finish off I scattered some sequins from I Dream in Peach Couture Mix.

theton0227-cuwm

Next two cards are featuring some lovely die cut flowers cut using Petal Cut Peonies Standalone dies. I made two different backgrounds in coral and gray color combination and added white die cut peonies on them.

theton0227-2-7wm

To create the background for this card I blended Peach BlossomCrystal Pewter  and a little bit of Smoky Quartz inks on my front panel first, before heat embossing the solid peonies and leaves from Wild Peonies stamp set on it. I added more inks again after heat embossing to show off the images. I cut a rectangle frame using Double Stitched Rectangle dies, foam mounted the frame on my card base and added the rectangle panel flat.

Next picture shows my card on this stage. I thought it could make a pretty card as it is, of course with a sentiment :), so wanted to show you this.

theton0227-2-wipwm

I die cut lots of Peonies and foliage from white card stock using Petal Cut Peonies Standalone dies. I then played with these gorgeous flowers to find out an arrangement I liked. The sentiment is from Scripty Greetings stamp set, white heat embossed on some black card stock, fussy cut and mounted with foam adhesive. I finished off the card by adding some sequins from Cinderella’s Ride and I Dream in Peach Couture Mixes.

theton0227-2-cu2wm

Let’s take a look at the last card ! This was made in similar way like the second card.

theton0227-3-7wm

The background here was created using same technique like the second card. But this time I clear heat embossed the Minor Stripes background stamp. I added two circle frames I cut with my cutting machine to give the die cut flowers something to sit on. I blended it in coral and gray as well. The sentiment is from Scripty Greetings stamp set.  For this card I adhered two small Clear Dew Drops in addition to some sequins from Cinderella’s Ride and I Dream in Peach Couture Mixes. Love the effect of those Dew Drops!

theton0227-all-6wm

That’s it from me today! I hope I was able to inspire you to give coral and gray combination a try!

Mirror Image Event with So Suzy Stamps

mie_details

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far! It’s TaeEun here today to share a card with you I made as a part of our February event: Mirror Image Event with So Suzy Stamps and My Sweet Petunia.

You can get more information about this event and about the prizes on the So Suzy Stamps blog as well. We will also be sharing the cards on Facebook and Instagram, just in case you miss a blog post.

This is the fourth post on The Ton blog about mirror stamping, so I guess you know already how the Mirror Image Stamp works. But If it is the first time for you, you can watch a video tutorial here.

Let’s take a look at my card!

theton0212-1wm

I chose the lady from our Born Classy stamp set for my mirror image. I stamped the original image on the right side of a gray panel in Peach Blossom and stamped the mirror image on the left side slightly higher. I then colored both with Prismacolor colored pencils and added gray shade around the ladies using Copic markers. For a dreamy look I made bokeh background by stamping solid circles from Bokeh Burst Round using Hampton white pigment ink. I set the panel aside to dry, then stamped poppies and leaves from Fresh Cut Poppies Outlines on some vellum in embossing ink and heat embossed them in white. I colored the poppies and leaves using Tombow markers on the back of the vellum and fussy cut them all. After the white pigment ink on the gray panel was dry I mounted it on the black card base with foam adhesive and arranged the vellum poppies on it as shown in picture. I added black glitter tape to the top and bottom of the colored panel.

theton0212-cu2wm

I borrowed the wavy sentiment from City Girls Special day stamp set. I gold heat embossed the sentiment and added the tiny JUST FOR YOU from the same set in Grand Fuchsia. To finish off the card I added sequins from Glass Slippers and Purple Ballgown Couture Mix.

This could be a birthday card or congratulations card for a girl. That’s it from me today! I hope you enjoyed my card and give the mirror image a try!

Poppy Garden Cling Background

Hello everyone! Hope your week is starting off well!  It’s TaeEun here today with two cards made using Poppy Garden Cling Background stamp from our new Anniversary Release.

Like all other stamps of the Garden Cling Background series you can use the whole stamp to make an elegant background or expose only some area of the stamp to create a focal point as I showed you on Day 3 of our Anniversary Release week. Today’s cards are showing the former case.

theton0130-1-2wm

For my first card I decided to go with black, red and gold. I stamped Poppy Garden Cling Background in embossing ink on a black cardstock and heat embossed it in gold.  I cut out the biggest poppy and a solid leave from the black panel before heat embossing. Here I used my cutting machine to cut them out. But you can fussy cut it, maybe only the poppy, after heat embossing, as its outline is relatively simple to cut. I stamped the Poppy Garden Cling Background again in yellow on a white cardstock, colored the big poppy with Copic markers and then gold heat embossed the image. I aligned the colored panel and the black front panel and mounted it on my black card base, the colored panel flat and the black panel using some foam adhesive. The sentiment is from The Basic Labels. I gold heat embossed it on a piece of black cardstock and adhered it on the card. To finish off I added clear Wink of Stella on the butterflies.

theton0130-1-cuwm

On my second card I colored the silver heat embossed image of the Poppy Garden Cling Background using alcohol inks.

theton0130-2-1wm

This time I went with silver and red. For a clearly heat embossed image I stamped Poppy Garden Cling Background in yellow first and applied alcohol ink on it. Used alcohol inks are Cranberry, Poppyfield, Watermelon, Flamingo for poppies, Sunshine Yellow and Valencia for butterflies and Limeade and Botanical for leaves. For the background I used Aqua. After the panel was dry, I stamped Poppy Garden Cling Background again in embossing ink with the help of Misti tool and heat embossed it in silver. In order to make some space for my sentiment I cut the bottom part of the colored panel, added a thin strip of silver Adhesive Glitter Paper on the edge and mounted it on the red card base using foam adhesive. The silver heat embossed sentiment is from Thoughtful Poppies stamp set.

theton0130-2-cuwm

That’s it from me for today. Hope you enjoyed my cards!

Don’t forget to stop by our The Ton Challenge Blog on Feb. 1st. to check out our new challenge!

Have a wonderful and crafty week!
