Today we are Revealing more beautiful floral clear stamp sets! Let me introduce you our new 3 Clear Stamp sets, 2 Border Cling stamps, 5 Coordinating Dies, and a Background Cling stamp.
*The Coordinating Dies for Poppy & Sunflower Border stamps will not be available until on or about 6/16*
I can’t wait to show you what I created with these gorgeous stamps, so let’s get right to it!
Here’s the first card!
I really loved the poppies images from the last release, so I was thrilled to see the Poppy Border Cling Stamp in our Summer 2017 collection! Without any hesitation, I knew exactly what to do with it – heat emboss in gold and color with the Color Burst watercolor powder! So I did!!
I stamped the image on a watercolor cardstock in Versamark and colored with the Color Burst powders. The colors I used are: Alizarin Crimson, Marigold, Lemon Yellow, Sap Green, and Lime Green. I adore how bright and vibrant these powders are! When it was good and dry, I swiped the Versamark on the edges of the panel and heat embossed with the gold glitter embossing powder. I adhered the panel on a black cardstock with the strong double sided tape.
I stamped the sentiment (borrowed from our new Large Peony 4 stamp set) on a black cardstock in Versamark ink and heat embossed in white. I trimmed it down to a strip using the trimmer, added some gold dots with the gel pen, and popped it up on the card with foam tape. I added some gold thread around the sentiment strip and finished the card by adding some Medallion Gold, Glass Slippers, and Deep Sage sequins.
Moving on the the second card! Those of you who loved our sunflower stamps from the last release (including myself), will love this Sunflower Border Stamp set! No need to mask or contemplate on how to arrange the florals. Just stamp and color! 🙂
Here’s what I made!
I heat embossed this image in gold on a watercolor cardstock and colored with the Color Burst Powders. The colors I used are: Lemon Yellow, Marigold, Sap Green, Lime Green, and mix of Lemon Yellow & Violet to make brown color. I don’t own the earth toned powders so I had to be a little creative. 🙂 I also splattered some gold pigments all over the panel. When it was all good and dry, I die cut the panel using the largest and the second largest dies from out (Large) Double Stitched Rectangle Dies to create more interest and adhered it on a A2 white cardbase with the strong double sided tape.
Then I die cut our Hugs Word Die several times (one with a Gold Adhesive Glitter Paper) and glued them on top of each other to create dimension. I stamped the sentiment (borrowed from Penned Sentiments from Day1) and glued the “hugs” right below it. I added some Lemon Chiffon Sequins and the Belle’s Dress Couture Mix and the card was complete!
Oh my, you have no idea how excited I was when I found out Effie designed more Large Peony stamp sets! In my opinion, the large Peony sets are one of The Ton’s signature products, and they are actually the reason how I initially fell in love with The Ton.
Here’s the card I created with our new Large Peony 4 stamp set! (… and one of my favorite cards I created for this release week! ^.~*)
Are you familiar with watercolor stamping with Zig Markers? Basically, you mount the stamp on a clear block (or MISTI in my case), flip it over, scribble with the Zig Markers, spritz some water from a distance, then stamp it on to a watercolor cardstock. I used 026 Light Pink to stamp the peony and 041 Light Green Zig markers to stamp the leaves. Then I went in with 025 Pink & 044 Deep Green to darken up here and there to create more depth. I blended the pigments with the water brushes. If you don’t own water based markers, you could simply stamp the image in light-toned inks such as Ballet Slippers Dye of Warm Hazelnut Dye for no-line watercoloring.
When it was completely dry, I die cut the panel using the largest die from our (small) Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and mounted on a black A2 sized card base using the black fun foam. Then I stamped the sentiment (borrowed from our new Anemone Bouquet) in Versamark, heat embossed in white. I cut it down to a small strip and adhered in on the card. I finished the card by adding a Glass Slipper Confetti and couple of Dew Drops mix. I wanted the coloring to shine, so I kept the design fairly simple.
Last but not least, here’s the final card for today I created using our new Large Peony 5 clear stamp set!
I started the card by stamping the beautiful peony & leaves image from our new Large Peony 5 clear stamp set on a smooth white cardstock in our Copic-friendly Caviar Hybrid ink and colored them with Copic markers. The colors I used are: RV66, RV19, RV11, YG01, YG03, YG17, and YG67. Then I added more depth with color pencils. I also stamped the solid leaves images with our Crystal Garden Couture Color Collection dye inks. I fussy cut out all the images and put it aside. I didn’t have the coordinating dies, but it will be available to you tomorrow!
Then, I worked on the background panel. I stamped the Haute Stripes Background Cling stamp on a white cardstock in our Noir Dye ink several times using the MISTI (Original) stamping tool to ensure I get the dark and crisp black stripes. Then I die cut using the largest die from the (Large) Double Stitched Square Dies and also a circle in the middle using the 3rd largest layer from the (Large) Double Stitched Circle Dies. I first adhered a white cardstock sized 5.25″ square then popped up the striped background panel on top with the foam tape.
When the background was complete, I adhered all the peony and the leaves on the card (some with foam tape) and added some shimmer with the Clear Sparkle Marker. I stamped the sentiment on a strip of vellum, heat embossed in gold, and adhered it around the bottom of the card. I added some Matte Gold sequins and Pink Neptune Couture Mix and the card was done!
