Monochromatic floral cards

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of floral cards. Yes, let’s take a break from Christmas cards :)!

I used Fresh Cut Carnations and Large Florals: Carnation set from our Fall 2017 Release. I kept the cards in a monochromatic style in blue and purple respectively by making the background in the same tone like the flowers.

Let’s start with the blue version!

TheTon1213 1 1

I stamped the layered carnations from Fresh Cut Carnations in Cobalt breeze and Deep Sapphire. I skipped the first layer to brighten the image. I stamped the stem in gray using Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz and cut all the images out with coordinating dies. I then created the watercolor background panel by adding blue paint loosely on a wet watercolor paper. I added blue and white splatters on it and let it dry. The panel was cut with the largest Double Stitched Rectangle die and glued on a white cardbase. To white emboss the sentiment from Magnificent Magnolias I blended Cobalt breeze and Deep Sapphire on a strip of white cardstock. I matted the sentiment strip with some Silver glitter adhesive paper and foam mounted the sentiment and flowers onto the card along with some silver thread. To finish off the card I used some sequins from Milky Way and Midnight Frost Couture Mix.

TheTon1213 CU1

For my second card I used Large Florals: Carnation set.  To stamp the large carnation I used Iris Blooms and Grape Crush dye ink. Here also I skipped the first layer. I cut the flower with the coordinating die and set it aside.

TheTon1213 2 2

To create the background panel I die loose watercolor wash on some watercolor paper in purple and light blue. I then stamped the second layer of the leave image on it in Iris Blooms . And I added some leaves from Large Peony set 1 and 3 in Soft Amethyst. I then splattered purple and opaque white watercolor on it and let it dry. I foam mounted the flower on a nest made with some silver thread. The sentiment is from Large Florals: Carnation as well. I made a ombre purple strip by blending Iris Blooms and Grape Crush and white heat embossed the sentiment. For some sparkle I added a thin line of purple glitter tape and mounted the sentiment strip onto the card. My finishing touch was some clear Dew Drops.

That’s it from my side! I hope you liked looking my cards today!

CAS Christmas Cards

Hello everyone! It’s TaeEun here! Hope you are having a great week so far! I have seven Christmas cards to share with you today! Actually they are in a single design :). The main panel of today’s cards is featuring one of our new stamps from November Release, Folk Art Christmas Tree. But I didn’t use this stamp as a Christmas tree. I wanted to embellish my panel with the upper part of the tree which is beautifully decorated. I added three different focal elements onto the cards using Holiday Ornaments, Holly Branch, Holiday Bows and Christmas Wreath Builder.

These are the first set of three cards showing the circle Holiday Ornament as focal element.

TheTon1129 set1 2WM

TheTon1129 set1 3 3WM

To make this card I white heat embossed the Folk Art Christmas Tree on a light beige cardstock twice as shown in the picture. I narrowed down the panel and adhered it on a white cardbase on both sides of which I added Thin strips of transparent adhesive Glitter Paper. The circle ornament from Holiday Ornaments was gold heat embossed and fussy cut. I foam mounted the ornament and added gold thread as a string and a clear rhinestone to the bow.  The sentiment from Holiday Ornaments  was gold heat embossed  on a white banner and foam mounted onto the ornament.

TheTon1129 set1 2 1WM

On this card I stamped the Folk Art Christmas Tree in ombre red using Lipstick Red, Valentine Red and Pink Derby. The front panel was glued on a red cardbase. I added thin red glitter tape on both sides of the front panel to add some shine. The silver heat embossed ornament is hanging on a silver thread. The sentiment from Holiday Ornaments was white heat embossed on a red banner.

Theton1129 set1 1 2WM

For the last card of the first set I used a red panel to white heat emboss the Folk Art Christmas Tree . The front panel was adhered on a white cardbase on both sides of which I added a strip of Adhesive Foil paper Gold. The ornament and the sentiment were gold heat embossed on white cardstock.

TheTon1129 set2 WM

The second set has a bow from Holiday Bows and Holly Branch as focal element.

To stamp the leaves of the Holly Branch I used Soft Garden and Bright Fern to achieve an ombre look. The veins were stamped in Basil Mojito. The berries are stamped in Valentine Red and Spiced Chai and the branch in Found Topaz. I then cut the Holly Branch using Coordinating die.

TheTon1129 set2 2 1WM

For the red version I stamped the biggest Holiday Bow in Valentine Red and Spiced Chai and fussy cut it. The front panel was created like the one on the second card of the first set. I foam mounted the Holly Branch and the red Holiday Bow and added the sentiment banner onto the bow using some foam adhesive. The white heat embossed sentiment is from Holiday Ornaments. To finish off I added clear Pico embellisher on the berries.

TheTon1129 set2 1 1WM

To stamp the green Folk Art Christmas Tree in ombre green I used Soft Garden, Bright Fern and Basil Mojito. The Holiday Bow was heat embossed in gold pearl and gold embossing powder on some light beige cardstock. I added Adhesive Foil paper Gold onto top and bottom of a white cardbase and adhered the front panel on it. The Holly Branch and Holiday Bow  were foam mounted. The sentiment from Holiday Ornaments was white heat embossed on a green banner created by blending Basil Mojito on some white cardstock. I popped the banner on the bow using some foam adhesive.

TheTon1129 set3 4WM

On these two cards the wreath from Christmas Wreath Builder set is the focal element. The wreaths were stamped in Bright Fern and Basil Mojito. The stem layer was stamped in Smoky Quartz. The wreaths were cut using Coordinating die.

TheTon1129 set3 2 2WM

For this card I gold heat embossed the Folk Art Christmas Tree on a red panel and glued it on a white cardbase on both sides of which I added transparent adhesive Glitter Paper . I gold heat embossed the stems of the pine branch on a wreath and foam mounted it onto the card. To finish off I added small sequins from Medallion Gold sequins mix on the wreath. The sentiment banner was created like the one of the previous card.

TheTon1129 set3 1 2WM

For my last card I stamped the Folk Art Christmas Tree in green ombre like the fifth card. The sentiment was stamped in Basil Mojito. I embellished the cardbase using green glitter tape and finished off the card by adding some sequins from Glass Slippers round confetti on the wreath.

Christmas cards in sets

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today sharing 4 Christmas cards in two different designs.

I usually make a single card with a design. But this time I played around with different colors and placements and made two cards for eace design. So I have 4 more Christmas cards ready for this season :)!

The first set was created using Cozy Poinsettias.

TheTon1115 set1 2WM

TheTon1115 1 1 WM

To create this card I white heat embossed Cozy Poinsettias image two times on a beige cardstock. I splattered opaque white paint on the panel and cut it using Double Stitched rectangle die slightly smaller than A2. I gold heat embossed Cozy Poinsettias  again on a Bristol smooth panel, watercolored it and cut it with the coordinating die. I foam mounted the beige panel on a white cardbase and popped up the poinsettia cluster on it. The sentiment is from Cozy Poinsettias as well. I stamped it in Noir and added some sequins from Glass Slippers round confetti.

TheTon1115 1 CUWM

The second card in the same design like the first one is in blue and purple.

TheTon1115 2 1WM

This time I heat embossed Cozy Poinsettias in gold pearl embossing powder and colored the poinsettia cluster with Prismacolor colored pencils. I used a blue cardbase to match it to the image. The sentiment was white heat embossed. Some sequins from Gold Medallion were my finishing touch.

TheTon1115 2 CUWM

Next two cards are in traditional colors, red and green :)! I created watercolor wash as backdrop for Brushed Merry in green and red and embellished the cards with Good Tidings Cluster and Christmas Mini Cluster sets.

TheTon1115 set2WM

TheTon1115 3 1WM

The watercolored background panel was cut with Double Stitched rectangle die and glued on a white cardbase. I stamped Brushed Merry in Noir on a separate white cardstock and cut it with my cutting machine. I heat embossed it in silver glitter embossing powder and clear heat embossed it again. The images from Good Tidings Cluster and Christmas Mini Cluster were white heat embossed on some watercolor paper , watercolored and cut using coordinating dies . The Brushed Merry was glued on the background panel and the poinsettia clusters were foam mounted onto the card. I scattered some mini clear sequins from Deck the Halls Couture Mix and added white Pico Embellisher on the berries to finish off the card.

TheTon1115 3 CU2WM

On my last card I white heat embossed Brushed Merry on the watercolor background panel. I drew a shadow line around the letters in red Spica glitter pen.

TheTon1115 4 1WM

I repeated the same process like the previous card. To finish of this version I added some sequins from Elf Stockings and Deck the Halls Couture Mix.

TheTon1115 4 CU2WM

That’s all from me today :)! Hope you enjoyed looking my Christmas cards.

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.

TheTon1006 2 CUWM

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!
