Wildflower Banner & Butterflies

Hello everyone! It’s Jenny here today taking over The Ton’s blog  today! For today’s project, I created a watercolor floral card using the Wildflower Banner, Beautiful Butterflies1, and Haute Stripes Background Cling stamp. I colored the images with the recently purchased Color Burst Watercolor pigment powders from our Boutique. So vibrant and fun to color with, I immediately fell in love with the Color Burst!

Let me show you the card!

Hello everyone! Thank you for stopping by! It’s Jenny here and I would like to share 2 cards I created for The Ton Monthly Challenge! This month’s theme is Tic-Tac-Toe challenge. It’t my first time playing the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge, but I had so much fun creating the projects. I chose SHAKER CARD – EMBOSSING – WATERCOLOR! For the first card, I achieved a very bold and vibrant look, whilst the second one is much more pastel and soft. I love both looks and am quite happy how these cards turned out!

Let me show you the first one!

 

Ton_MayChallenge_MG_FE1

 

The products I used on this project are:

I started the card by stamping Morning Glory Cling Background stamp on a watercolor cardstock in Versamark ink and heat embossed the entire image with gold embossing powder. I colored with Gansai Tambi watercolors and splattered some gold ink all over the panel. When the watercolor panel was completely dry, I cut the panel down  to 4″x5″5 and die cut out the inside area with the Morning Glory Border coordinating die. I turned it into a shaker frame by adding the acetate and 2 layers of 3M foam tape on the back of the panel. In the meantime, I stamped the Freestyle Stripes Cling Background Stamp on a white cardstock in Versamark and heat embossed in gold. I filled the shaker frame with the Triple Purple Mix Sequins, Medallion Gold Mix Sequins, and the  Glass Slippers Mix sequins. I removed the release paper and closed the frame with the Freestyle Stripes panel. I adhered some Gold Adhesive Glitter paper on top and bottom of a white A2 sized card base for added interest, then I adhered the shaker. I also die cut several layers of the Congratulations Word Die in white and one gold, and glued them on top of each other for more dimension. I adhered the word die and finished the card by adding some Medallion Gold Mix Sequins and Mixed Dew Drops

Here is the second card!

Ton_MayChallenge_WF_FE1

 

The products I used on this card are:

 

I started stamping images from Wishful Wildflowers stamp set on Bristol Smooth cardstock in Versamark ink. I heat embossed with silver pearl embossing powder, colored all images with Zig Clean color real brush markers, and die cut them out using the Wishful Wildflowers Coordinating Dies. I put the die cut images aside and went ahead working with the shaker elements. First, I die cut a rectangle using the largest layer of the (Small) double stitched Rectangle Dies. Then I die cut a window out in the middle of the panel using the (Small) double stitched circle dies. I also made a circle frame using the dies using the same sets. Then, I ink blended Ballet Slippers Dye ink and Soft Orchid Dye ink on the rectangle panel, the circle frame, and the A2 sized white card base. I also splattered some shimmer for added interest. When everything was good and dry, I assembled the shaker card. I filled up the shaker with  the Pink Diamond Couture MixGlass Slippers Mix Sequins, and the Crystal Flora sequins. I used a panel of Glossy Fine Transparent Adhesive Glitter paper to close up the shaker. Then I went ahead and adhered the die cut flowers and leaves on the card. I finished the card by adding sequins from the new Pink Diamond Couture Mix and some Glass Slippers Mix Sequins

Hello and welcome to The Ton’s Spring 2017 Release Blog Hop! It’s Jenny here and you are at the right place if you just arrived from fabulous Isha Gupta’s blog!

For this blog hop, I created 2 very different cards. I’m not sure if you have noticed, but I tried to create cards in all variety of style and coloring mediums for this release. Today’s post is not an exception. I created one card with a rustic look with no-line coloring. The other card is a shaker, packed with glam, shine, and sparkle! I can’t wait to share them with you, so let’s get started!

 

Here is the first card!

Ton_Spring2017_BH_Perfume_FE1

  • I started the card by stamping one of the Perfume bottle image from the Marvelous Perfumes stamp set on a smooth white cardstock in Versamark. The image was then heat embossed in gold. I smudged gold mousse on the image, let it dry and fussy cut. I didn’t have it at the time I was creating this card, but the Marvelous Perfumes Coordinating Dies are available at the shop now. I stamped the same image again but this time in our Noir Dye ink. I partially fussy cut the labels and paper pieced onto the gold perfume bottle image. While I had the gold embossing powder out, I also stamped the sentiment on a black cardstock, heat embossed, and then cut it down to a banner shape.
  • To create the background, I stamped our new Mini Heart Print Cling stamp on a white smooth cardstock in Versamark. I heat embossed the whole panel with Sparkle Gold embossing powder and trimmed it down to 4.25″x5.5″.
  • Then I moved on to the shaker frame. I adhered the Glossy Fine Gold Adhesive paper on a sturdy black cardstock and die cut using the largest die from the Large Double Stitched Dies and the 2nd largest die from the Small Double Stitched Dies. I adhered acetate and double layers of foam tape to create the shaker frame. Then I filled it with our new Hot Cocoa & Pretty Petals Couture Mix, Black Tie Affair Couture Mix, Black Flora sequins, Glass Slippers sequins, Medallion Gold, and Matte Gold sequins. I sealed the shaker frame with the background panel and adhered the shaker on a black A2 card base with the strong adhesive.
  • On the shaker, I laid some gold embroidery thread and adhered the perfume bottle image and the sentiment strip on top. I finished the card by adding a tiny shiny heart on the bottle and few Medallion GoldBlack Flora sequins.

 

Ton_Spring2017_BH_Perfume_CE1

 



 

Now let’s move on to the other card!

This card is much more toned down and rustic even, but I am very pleased how the no-line coloring on dark kraft paper turned out!

Ton_Spring2017_BH_KraftSunF_FE1

 

  • I stamped the Sunflower Bouquet on a dark kraft cardstock in our Warm Hazelnut Dye ink. I thought this light brown ink goes tone-on-tone on the kraft, which makes it perfect for the no-line coloring technique.
  • I colored the image with the coloring pencils and when the coloring was all done, I added some dots on the center of the flowers with black gel pen. I also stamped the sentiment (from the Fresh Cute Sunflowers stamp set) in Noir Dye ink. I die cut the panel down to A2 size, with the largest die from the Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and ink blended on the edges only in our Apen Cocoa and Dark Roast Dye ink.
  • I adhered the panel on a black A2 sized card base, added jute twine, and finished the card by adding some sequins from the new Belle’s Dress Couture Mix.

Day 4 Products


Hello and welcome to the Day 4 of The Ton’s Spring 2017 Release Week! I have couple of “glam” cards and a watercolor stamped card I’d like to share today! I used our new Sentiment Jewelry, Chandelier, and the Pragmatic Wreaths stamp set to create them. Let’s get started!
Here is the first card!
Ton_Spring2017_Day2_SilverCh_FE1
For this card, I created a beautiful wedding card with lots of sparkle and shine using our new Sentiment Jewelry stamp set. I collaborated this new stamp set with the older sets, Haute Wedding and Grand Stairway Cling, to build the scene.
  • I started the card by stamping one of the Jewelry image from our new Sentiment Jewelry stamp set on the vellum in Versamark and heat embossed with Silver Glitter embossing powder. I cut the panel down to slightly smaller than A2 size.
  • Then I stamped the bride image from the Haute Wedding stamp set on a smooth cardstock in our Copic friendly Caviar Hybrid ink and colored it with the Copic markers. I stamped the lace image from the same set on top of the colored image in Versamark and heat embossed in silver. I die cut the image using the Coordinating die.
  • I used the die cut image to decide the placement of the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed in silver.
  • I stamped the Grand Stairway Cling stamp on a smooth white cardstock in our Smoky Quarts Dye ink.
  • I created the frame by adhering our Silver Glossy Fine Adhesive paper on a sturdy white cardstock and die cut using the largest and 2nd largest die from the Double Stitched Large Rectangle Dies.
  • I assembled the card on a white A2 sized card base. I popped up the bride image using the foam tape. I finished the card by adding the Silver Holographic Sequins.

Ton_Spring2017_Day2_SilverCh_CE2



Here is the second card!
Ton_Spring2017_Day2_GoldCh_FE1
If the first card was a silver bling, this one is a gold bling! I created this card by collaborating our new Chandelier stamp set and the older sets, Born Classy and the Grand Stairway Cling. I think this card would be perfect for someone who loves glamorous things!
  • I started the card by stamping the Chandelier on a vellum in Versamark. I heat embossed the image with Gold Glitter embossing powder.
  • Then I moved on to the lady image from the Born Classy stamp set. I stamped her and her purse on a smooth white cardstock in our Caviar Hybrid ink. I stamped the left side of the dress layer with the Noir Dye ink. Then I stamped the sparkle image on top of the right side of the dress in Versamark and heat embossed in gold. To create the left side layer of the dress, I stamped the image on vellum in Versamark and heat embossed in gold. Since I had the gold powder out, I also went ahead and heat embossed the sentiment on a strip of a black cardstock. I colored the lady, her dress layer, and the purse with the Copic markers and die cut using the Coordinating dies.
  • I stamped the Grand Stairway Cling stamp on a smooth white cardstock in our Noir Dye ink.
  • I created the frame by adhering our Gold Glossy Fine Adhesive paper on a sturdy black cardstock and die cut using the largest and 2nd largest die from the Double Stitched  Large Rectangle Dies.
  • Then I assembled all the elements onto a A2 sized black card base and finished the card off by adding Matte Gold, Medallion Gold, Glossy Black sequins, and our new Rosy Petals Couture Mix.

 

Ton_Spring2017_Day2_GoldCh_CE2

 

 



 

For the 3rd and final card for today, I went with a totally different mood than the 2 cards above! I tried watercolor stamping with our new Pragmatic Wreaths stamp set. This stamp set is so delicate, dainty, and also very versatile.

Ton_Spring2017_Day2_Wreath_FE1

 

  • Using the Misti tool, I scribbled 2 different shades of green Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers on the wreath image, sprayed tiny bit of water and stamped on the upper right side of a watercolor cardstock. I repeated this twice for all the images to achieve bolder colors. Then I stamped the leaves and the branch image  in same way. I repeatedly stamped branch image on the cardstock the same way but I used pink Zig markers for the flowers. I also added pink flowers here and there to fill in the empty spaces. I let it dry completely and die cut using the largest die from the Double Stitched Small Rectangle Dies.
  • I stamped the sentiment “hope you have a” in Noir Dye ink, and “Fabulous Day” in Grand Fuchsia Dye ink. Then I die cut a panel out of a aqua colored cardstock using the largest die from the Double Stitched Large Rectangle Dies and adhered it on a white A2 sized card base.
  • I tied a natural color twine and adhered the watercolor panel on the card using fun foam on the back. I finished the card by adding some sequins from our new Rosy Petals Couture Mix and the Glass Slippers Round Confetti.

Day 3 Products



 

Hello and welcome to the Day 3 of The Ton’s Spring 2017 Release Week! Hope you are enjoying the new release products and getting inspired by the projects our design team has been sharing! We just revealed final products for this new new release, and the products are finally available at the shop! Yay!

For today, I created 3 cards and an envelope with our new Day 3 products. Without a further adieu, let’s check them out!

 

Here is the first card!

Ton_Spring2017_Day4_RPeony_FE1

 

I created a bold card using our new Dearest Peony stamp set and here is how I created this card:

  • I started the card by stamping the Peony image from our new Dearest Peony Stamp set on a smooth cardstock in our Copic Friendly Caviar Hybrid ink. Then I colored the image with Copic markers and I also added some depth to the image using the color pencils. When the coloring was done I cut the image out.
  • I stamped the sentiment on a strip of black cardstsock in Versamark and heat embossed in white. I cut the strip down to a banner shape and put it aside for later assembly.
  • To create the background, I first stamped the Haute Stripes Cling Background stamp on a white smooth cardstock in Noir Dye ink. I used MISTI tool to stamp multiple times to achieve solid bold black color on the panel. Before the ink was completely dry, I sprinkled the Gold Glitter embossing powder and heat set. Then I die cut the panel with the largest die from the Double Stitched Small Dies. I adhered the background panel on a black A2 sized black cardstock.
  • I adhred the Peony image and the sentiment banner on the card with foam tape and finished the card by adding some Medallion Gold sequins and the new Kiwi Smoothie Couture Mix.

 

Ton_Spring2017_Day4_RPeony_CE1

 



 

For the second card, I created a bright and colorful floral card with our new Peony Crush Cling stamp and the Modern Labels stamp set (will be debuting on Day 4). I love our cling background stamps because the arrangement of the images are all done for you so you just need to stamp and color on! And that’s what I did with this card!

Ton_Spring2017_Day4_PeonyC_FE1

 

  • I started the card by stamping the Peony Crush image on a Bristol Smooth cardstock in Versamark. I heat embossed in our Rose Gold embossing powder and colored the image with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, blending out the pigment with clear water. When the panel was completely dry, I cut the panel down to 4″x5.5″.
  • While the watercolor panel was drying, I went ahead and stamped the sentiment and the label image from our new Modern Labels stamp set on vellum in Versamark. I heat embossed with the Rose Gold embossing powder as well. I cut the vellum down to a strip, wrapped it around the watercolor panel and secured it with tape on the back of the panel.
  • I adhered our Pink Burnished tape on the sides of a white A2 sized card base and then I adhered the watercolor panel on the card popped up with the fun foam on the back.
  • I finished the card by adding some Tripple Purple sequins, new Guava Sparkle Couture Mix, and new Raspberry Sparkle Couture Mix.

Here is the 3rd and final card for today! I made a matching envelope too! For this project, I used our new Pretty Mail and the Mini Mail Stamp set.

Ton_Spring2017_Day4_PrettyM_FE1

 

  • I first stamped the Pretty Mail image on a Bristol Smooth cardstock in Versamark and heat embossed in Gold. I colored the image with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens and blended the pigment out with Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen for lots of shimmer! When the panel was completely dry, I stamped the sentiment from our new Mini Mail stamp set in Noir Dye ink. Then I die cut the panel with the largest die from the Double Stitched Small Rectangle Dies. I adhered fun foam on the back of the panel and adhered it on to a black card base trimmed down to slightly smaller than A2. I adhered Burnished Yellow Gold Foil tape all around the card base before adhering the watercolor panel. I finished the card by adding some Medallion Gold sequins and our new Blue Lagoon Couture Mix I put the finished card aside to work on the matching envelope.
  • I cut down a aqua color cardstock down to 8.5″ square and turned it into an envelope using the envelope punch board. Before the assembly, I stamped the Pretty Mail image in Versamark and heat embossed in gold. I also stamped and heat embossed “Kindly Deliver to:” in Gold. On the aqua cardstock scrap, I stamped the heart image that says “You’ve Got Pretty Mail” and heat embossed in Gold. I cut the heart and added double side adhesive on the back to turn it into a seal for the envelope.
