Holiday Floral – Dot.B Stamp

Hello everyone! For today’s project, I would like to share a birthday card I made for a dear friend of mine using the Holiday Floral Digital stamp from DotBstamp Etsy shop. Although it’s a “holiday” image, you could use this image for any occasion depending on how you color and design on the card.

Here’s the card!

I started off by downloading and printing the Holiday Floral image on a 80lb. Neenah Solar White cardstock. I chose the big cluster floral image out of the different images from the set. I colored the image with various Copic Markers and added a bit of details here and there with the Prismacolor color pencils. Copic colors I used are: R29, R24, YR07, YR16, Y17, YR23, G14, G19, and G29. I fussy cut the image and covered the edges with black marker for the finished look.

I stenciled the background panel using the Winnie & Walter’s Pattern of the Rings Stencil and Distress ink pads (Crushed Olive, Pine Needle, and Bundled Sage). For the sentiment, I used Altenew’s Floral Frame stamp set. I adhered the background panel on a white A2 card base and added a white die cut frame (Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Rectangle Frame). I popped up the flower on the card using foam tape and added some Clear Sparkle pen and white gel pen dots to add interest. I dressed up the card with some Clear Dew Drops from The Ton, and the card was complete!

Hello everyone! Hope your week is going well so far! I have another Eunji’s DotBstamp Etsy shop guest post to share with you! For today’s project, I used an adorable set called “Ice Winter.”

Enjoa_IceWinter_WM

 

Here is the card I made!

EunJoa_IceWinter_FE1.jpg

I started off by printing the Ice Winter images on a Bristol Smooth cardstock. I colored the images (I used 3 images from the set) with Peerless Watercolors and added some details with white gel pen. The colors I used are: Bismark Brown, Warm Sepia, Ecru, Turquoise Blue, Forget Me Not Blue, Marigold Yellow, Chrome Orange, Blood Red, Scarlet Red, Alizarine Red, Lip Smackin’ Pink, Bubble Gum, and Amethyst.  I fussy cut the images put it aside.

I die cut a Bristol Smooth cardstock first with the largest die from The Ton’s Small Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and the SSS’s Birch Tree Window Die next. I ink blended Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire Distress ink around the top edges. I created a snowy scene with the water droplets and white dots. I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment (from Hero Arts’ Winter Time Fun), cut it down to a banner, and adhered it on the panel.  I added double layer of foam tape on the back of the panel to create the shaker window.

On a top folding A2 black card base, I adhered silver glitter cardstock. Then, I added some Iridescent sequins from Darice and Diamond Dust and sealed it with the shaker window. I adhered the colored images on the card and added iridescent sequins to complete the card!

Here’s the card!

Ton_Nov2017Challenge_FE1

To start off, I stamped the ballerina image from the Holiday Ballet stamp set on a Bristol Smooth cardstock in our Noir Dye ink and I colored with the Zig markers. The colors I used are: Light Gray, Flesh Colour, Pale Pink, Light Pink, Mid Brown, and Oatmeal. Then, I cut it out with the Coordinating die and added some highlights with a gold gel pen.

Ton_Nov2017Challenge_CE2

Next, I stamped the Cozy Poinsettia image on a Bristol Smooth cardstock in Versamark ink and heat embossed in gold. I colored the image with various green and red Stabilo68 pens and added bit of details with the Polychromos pencils. I die cut the image out with the Coordinating dies.

Ton_Nov2017Challenge_CE1

Then I moved on to the background. I masked off the top half of the Scenes: Fire Place Rubber Cling stamp and stamped the image on a smooth white cardstock in Copic-safe Caviar Hybrid ink. I colored in using the Copic Markers (E57, E55, and E53). I also splattered some gold ink on top portion of the panel.

On a white A2 top folding card base, I adhered strips of the Glossy Fine Gold Glitter Adhesive paper around the edges and adhered the background panel. I also popped up  the poinsettia image with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment from the Banner-Holiday Add On mini stamp set on a red cardstock in Versamark and heat embossed in gold. I cut it down to a thin banner and adhered it on the card. I dressed up with some Medallion Gold Sequins and Deck the Halls Couture Mix and the card was complete!

October 2017 Release Products


 

How beautiful are our new October Release products?!! Oh, I am in love!!! Hope you are enjoying our new products and inspirations from our team. Stamp sets for this release are designed by Effie and our very own, fabulously talented Eunji Jung! Let me tell ya, it was extremely difficult to choose the sets I want to make today’s projects with. After contemplating many days, I decided to go with Tulip Bouquet, Daffodil Greetings, Celebration Rose Cluster, and Country Rose Cluster stamp set. I had so much fun creating these 4 cards and I cannot wait to share them with you! So let’s get started!

Here’s the first card I made with our new Tulip Bouquet stamp set!

Ton_Oct2017Release_tulip_FE1.jpg

I started off by stamping the Tulip Bouquet image on a watercolor cardstock in our Noir ink and heat embossed with clear powder. I stamped the image multiple times so the ink could stay moist long enough for the embossing powder to stick. Then I started coloring with various Stabilo 68 pens, blending the color with Clear Sparkle Pen instead of clear water. However, I used Turquoise Green Zig marker and clean clear water for the background. I also added some white gel pen dots for added interest.

Ton_Oct2017Release_tulip_CE1

When the coloring was done, I waited for the panel to dry completely and die cut using the largest die from our Small Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. Next, I stamped the sentiment on vellum strip, heat embossed in white, and wrapped it around the panel. I popped up the panel on a mint A2 sized top folding card base using fun foam and finished the card off by adding some Glass Slippers Sequins.


 

Here’s the 2nd card I created with our new Daffodil Greetings stamp set. This set will be available for purchase next month.

Ton_Oct2017Release_Daffodil_FE1

 

For the color scheme, I was totally inspired by this image I found on Google!

Purple Daffodil

To start off, I stamped the Daffodil Greetings image on a kraft cardstock in our Copic friendly Caviar Hybrid ink. I first colored the image with Copic Markers. The colors I used are V17, V15, V09, V01, YR07, YR09, Y17, YG67, YG17, YG03, and YG01. Then, I added more details with matching Polychromos color pencils. I also added some gel pen highlights.

Ton_Oct2017Release_Daffodil_CE1

Next, I dry embossed the frame around the panel using 3 largest dies from our Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and the rubber embossing pad. I stamped the sentiment (from the Country Rose stamp set) on the panel and finished the card off by adding some Dew Drops and Glass Slippers Confetti.


 

Here’s 3rd card I made using our new Celebration Rose Cluster Stamp set!

Ton_Oct2017Release_CelebrationRose_FE1

I started off by stamping the Celebration Rose Cluster image on a smooth white cardstock in our Caviar Hybrid ink. I colored the image with Copic markers and retraced all the lines with a black felt tip pen to achieve bold dark lines. The Copic colors I used are R89, R29, R24, Y17, Y06, YG67, YG17, YG03, and YG01. I also splattered black opaque watercolor on the panel for added interest. I die cut the panel down using the largest layer from the Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies.

Ton_Oct2017Release_CelebrationRose_CE1

Then, I die cut using our Brushed Happy Coordinating die over the image. I die cut 2 more out of white cardstock and glued all of them together for added dimension. I pieced it together and adhered it on a white A2 card base. I stamped the sentiment (from Country Rose Cluster Stamp set) and blended Light Onyx Dye and Noir Dye ink on the edges. I dressed up with some Clear Rhinestones and sequins from Black Tie Affair Mix and the card was complete!


 

Last but not least, here’s the 4th card using our new Country Rose Cluster stamp set.

Ton_Oct2017Release_CountryRose_FE1

I started the card by stamping the Country Rose Cluster image on a kraft cardstock in our Found Topaz Dye ink. Then I colored the image with couple of Inktense pencils (Willow & Bark) and Polychromos pencils (Raw Umber & Walnut Brown) keeping the monochromatic no-line coloring look. I drew and colored the frame on the panel using the same pencils. This card was inspired by Marika Rahtu’s stunning monochromatic card I saw on YouTube. 🙂

Ton_Oct2017Release_CountryRose_CE1

I stamped the sentiment “sending” in Dark Roast Dye ink and “Hugs” in Noir Dye ink and adhered the panel on a A2 kraft card base. I dressed up the card with some Clear Rhinestones and it was done!

Thankful Chrysanthemum

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a fabulous day! 🙂

For today, I would like to share a project I created using one of The Ton’s October Release products, Thankful Chrysanthemum (designed by my design teammate Eunji). If you follow my Instagram account, you may have seen the pink Chrysanthemum card I created with Eunji’s digital stamp. For this time, I went with a non-traditional palette for a different look!

Here’s the card!

Ton_OctoberChrysanthemum_FE1

To start off, I stamped the Chrysanthemum image on a watercolor cardstock in Versamark ink. I sprinkled Copper embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool. Then I watercolored the flower with a mixture of Turquoise Color Burst Powder and Gansai Tambi Watercolors in Red Gold from Starry Colors palette. I dropped Turquoise toward the center of the petals and Red Gold from the tip and had them meet on the middle to create this look. For the stem and the leaves, I used brown watercolors from Gansai Tambi. When the panel was completely dry, I die cut it down with the largest layer from the Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and trimmed the edges tiny bit using the Tim Holtz Trimmer.

Ton_OctoberChrysanthemum_CE1

Next, I ink blended and darkened up the edges of the panel using Warm Hazelnut, Found Topaz, Aspen Cocoa, and Dark Roast Dye ink. I stamped the sentiment (borrowed from The Ton’s Book Life stamp set) in Noir Dye ink. I loosely masked up the sentiment and the flower with scratch papers and splattered gold and black watercolors and let it dry. I adhered the panel on a black A2 top folding card base and dressed up the card with Matte Gold and Night Sequins from The Ton to complete the card!

That’s all from me today and I hope you enjoyed the card. Hope you’d visit The Ton Stamps to check out the gorgeous new October Release floral stamp sets.

Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful day! Happy crafting!

Dot.B October Release Day 3 – Thanks Giving

Hello everyone! It’s Jenny here and I’m back with another project for Eunji’s  DotBstamp on Etsy. For today, I’m show casing adorable animal digital stamp called Thanks Giving. This digital stamp set consists of 2 animals dressed up as pilgrims and there are also many small images which makes it perfect to create fall/Thanksgiving themed scene cards. Let me show you the stamp images!

Eunjoa_ThanksGiving_WM

 

Let me show you what I made with those adorable images!

Eunjoa_Thanksgiving_FE1

To start off, I printed 2 sets of the Thanks Giving digital stamp set on Bristol Smooth cardstocks. I cut the cardstocks down to A4 size to fit my printer. I colored 2 sets of pumpkins and 1 set of rest of the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Colors I used are: Scarlet Red, Bright Yellow, Deep Green Olive Green, Light Green, Geranium Red, Red, Flesh Color, Light Pink, Oatmeal, Light Gray, Dark Brown, Mid Brown, Brown, and Beige. I blended the pigments with fine tip water brushes. I let all the images dry completely and I cut them all out with my ScanNcut2 machine.

Eunjoa_Thanksgiving_CE1

Next, I moved on to the background. Using the MFT’s Cloud Stencil, I ink blended Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry, and Carved Pumpkin Distress Inks to create the fall color cloud background. I also stamped the sentiment (borrowed from Neat&Tangled Maple Thanks stamp set) in The Ton’s Noir Dye Ink. Then I die cut few grass borders using Lawn Fawn’s Meadow Border and Grassy Border dies. I kept the grass borders white, because the card was already getting bit busy. Then, I adhered the background panel on a top folding white A2 card base and popped up the grass borders with foam tape. I adhered the colored images onto the card and added some white gel pen here and there. I dressed up the card with some Darice Iridescent sequins of mixed sizes and this card was done!

That’s all from me today and I hope you enjoyed the card. Don’t forget to visit Eunji’s DotBstamp Etsy shop. There are lots of adorable animal images and beautiful floral sets too!

Thank you for stopping by! Happy crafting!
