Day 1 Products


 

For the 1st card, I went with our new Buildable Woodgrain stamp set and the Daisy Duet (GWP) stamp set. It was so much fun to create my own woodgrain background. You can stamp in so many different ways and there are infinite possibilities! I stamped it on a kraft cardstock to create more rustic feel to it.

Here’s the card!

Ton_DaisyDuet_FE1

 

I started off by stamping the Buildable Woodgrain stamp set on a kraft cardstock in Found Topaz Dye, Aspen Cocoa Dye, and Dark Roast Dye ink. I flipped around some stamps here and there to create the natural look. I die cut the panel using the largest die from our Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to a black cardbase slightly wider than A2 size.

Then, I stamped our new Daisy Duet stamp set on a smooth white cardstock in our Copic-friendly Caviar Hybrid ink and colored the image with Copic Markers. The colors I used are Y06, Y13, Y17, Y15, Y38, Yr04, YR09, R08, YG68, YG17, YG03, and YG01. I also added more details with color pencils and traced the lines with black journaling pen. I fussy cut it out (I didn’t have the Coordinating die at the moment) and popped it up on the card. I stamped the sentiment on a black cardstock in Versamark ink and heat embossed in white. I cut it down to a banner and popped it up on the card. I added some white gel pen dots on the daisies and finished the card off by adding some Clear Dew Drops.

I am showcasing our new Coming Up Daisies for the 2nd card. Let’s take a look!

Ton_ComingUpDaisies_FE1

To start off, I stamped the Coming Up Daisies on a watercolor paper and heat embossed in Silver. I colored the background with Navy Gansai Tambi watercolors and colored the daisies with Gansai Tambi (Plum), Color Burst (Lime Green & Peony), and the Dark Gray Zig marker for the center. I let it dry completely, die cut it with the largest die from the Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies, and adhered it to a white A2 card base.

Ton_ComingUpDaisies_CE1

To add interest, I stamped our Minor Stripes Cling stamp on a strip of a pink cardstock and popped it up with foam tape on the left side of the card. I added a sentiement strip heat embossed in white on a black cardstock, and dressed up the card with some Clear Dew Drops and our new Pink Blossoms Couture Mix.

For the 3rd card, I combined our new Large Florals: Daisies stamp set and the Seriously Amazing stamp set. It was a breeze to layer stamp this large Daisy and I LOVE adding the humorous sentiments over the image!

Here’s the card!

Ton_DaisyAmazing_FE1

First, I stamped all the layers of the Large Florals: Daisies in Soft Orchid Dye, Orchid Crush Dye, Grand Fuchsia Dye, Vanilla Frosted Cupcake Dye, Amber Citrine Dye, and Dark Roast Dye ink on a smooth white cardstock to create this beautiful large daisy.

Ton_DaisyAmazing_CE1

Then I stamped the sentiments from the Seriously Amazing stamp sets in Noir Dye ink multiple times using MISTI, making them wet enough to pour Clear embossing powder over it and heat set. I tilted the sentiments in different angles to create interest. I rounded the corners with the Corner Chomper and adhered in on the pink A2 card base on an angle. I dressed up the card with our new Pink Blossom Couture Mix and Lilac Blooms Couture Mix and the card was complete!

For the final card for today, I created a masculine winter card showcasing our new Winter Cardinal stamp set.

Here’s the card!

Ton_Cardinal_FE1

I stamped the Winter Cardinal and heat embossed in white first on the black cardstock and then also on the kraft cardstock. Then I cut both images down to quarter inch strips and pieced them together on a black square cardstock. I popped up every other strip with foam tape to create more interest.

Ton_Cardinal_CE1

Next, I stamped the brach images in Crystal Pewter Dye, Smoky Quartz Dye, Noir Dye, and Hampton White Pigment ink on a gray A2 cardbase. I stamped the sentiment in Noir Dye ink and adhered the cardinal on the card. I finished the card off by adding some Glass Slippers Sequins and Clear Rhinestones.

Best Wishes – Fresh Cut Carnations

Hello, crafty friends! Hope your week is going well so far! I have 3 carnations card I would like to share today. I used The Ton‘s Fresh Cut Carnations and the Coordinating dies for all 3 cards and I am please how these cards turned out!

Here’s the 1st card!

Ton_Carnation1_FE1

Ton_Carnation1_CE1


 

Here’s the 2nd card!

Ton_Carnation2_FE1

I used all the same supplies as the 1st card but I changed it up a bit with smaller frame created with the 2 smallest dies from the Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and the vellum sentiment strip. Also, instead of using the Haute Stripe for the entire background, I cut it down to a strip and used it as an accent piece. To dress up the card, I added Glass Slippers Sequins and Clear Rhinestones from The Ton.

Ton_Carnation2_CE2


 

Last but not least, here’s the 3rd card!

Ton_Carnation3_FE1

I also used the same products on this card, but I changed it up a bit with heat embossing the sentiment with Rose Gold embossing powder. I also added panel of pink cardstock after darkening up the edges with Hollywood Star Dye ink. I dress up the card with sequins from the Pink Neptune Couture Mix.

Bright Peonia – DotBstamp on Etsy

Hello, crafty friends! Hope you had a Happy New Years Day! Hope 2017 treated you well. This is year flew by so quickly for me. I was caught up with so many things in life, I wasn’t able to craft as much as I’d like to. However, I’m hoping things will be different this coming new year and spend more time at my craft table. On that note, I’d like to share a floral card I made using the digital image “Bright Peonia” from DotBstamp on Etsy by Eunji!

Eunjoa_BrightPaeonia_WM

Here’s the card!

BrightPaeonia_FE1

I started off by printing the Bright Peonia on a Bristol Smooth cardstock. I colored the image with Stabilo68 pens, blending out the pigments with water brush. Colors I used are #29, 56, 58, 44, 75, and 65. I added very faint of blue background with Light Blue Zig marker. I let it dry completely and stamped the sentiment from The Ton’s Magnificent Magnolia in Noir Dye ink. Then cut the panel down and adhered it on to a pink A2 card base. I felt like it needed a frame so I die cut a black frame using Mama Elephant’s Framed Tags Madison Avenue and adhered it on the card. I dressed it up with some Crystal Iridescent sequins and the card was complete!

I hope you enjoyed the card. 🙂 Thank you so much for your love and support in 2017 and I wish you all the best in 2018!

For today’s project, I created a card that I’ve been procrastinating for quite some time. When I first got my hand on our Beer stamp set and Coordinating Dies, I instantly thought of a double action card design idea that would be a both action wobble and shaker. Since it fits perfectly to the cue word “Cheers,” I went ahead and created a fun packed, masculin card for this month’s Challenge project.

Here’s the card!

Ton_Beer_Jan2017Challenge_FE1

 

I started off by layer stamping the Beer Stamp set in Beach Blondie Dye, Amber Citrine Dye, Spiced Chai Dye, Crystal Pewter Dye, Smoky Quartz Dye, and Vanilla Frosted Cupcake Dye ink. I die cut the image using the Beer Coordinating Dies and set it aside.

Then I die cut a black cardstock with the largest die from our Small Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and heat embossed the edges with Gold Tinsel embossing powder. I also stamped the sentiment (borrowed from Born Classy stamp set) on the corner and heat embossed in gold. I adhered the panel on a black A2 card base.

Ton_Beer_Jan2018Challenge_CE2

I created a shaker frame by die cutting Glossy Fine Gold Adhesive paper with 3rd and 4th largest dies from the Large Double Stitched Circle Dies and adhered acetate and double layer of 3M foam tape. I placed some Gold Medallion Sequins on the middle of the card and closed it up with the shaker frame.

Finally, I adhered the Beer image on the card with a action wobble on the back. I dressed up the card with some Gold Medallion sequins and the card was complete!

For this month’s challenge, I created couple of Christmas cards using Poinsettia Banner stamp set, Poinsettia Banner Die, Holly Branch stamp set, Holly Branch Die, and Holiday Confetti stamp set. Inspired by one of the image from this month’s mood board, I stayed with the color scheme of red, green, black, and white.

Here’s the 1st card!

Ton_Dec2017Challenge_Branch_FE1

I started off by layer-stamping Holly Branch on a smooth white cardstock. Inks I used are Aspen Cocoa, Soft Garden Dye, Bright Fern Dye, Basil Mojito Dye, and Valentine Red Dye ink. I die cut the branch using the Coordinating die. Next, I stamped the Holiday Confetti on 2 corners of a black cardstock in Hampton White Pigment Ink. I also stamped the sentiment 4 times in same ink. I die cut the panel using the largest layer of our Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies, and adhered it onto a black A2 sized top folding card base. I popped up the branch with foam tape as well as the red sentiment strip. Sentiment is from Banner – Holiday Add-On mini stamp set and i used Noir Dye ink. I finished the card by adding some Clear Rhinestones.

Here’s the 2nd card!

Ton_Dec2017Challenge_Banner_FE1

 

I started off by stamping the Poinsettia Banner on a black cardstock in Hampton White Pigment ink. I colored the image with Luminance color pencils and heat embossed over the image with white embossing powder to help the image pop. MISTI came in handy for this technique. Then, I die cut the image using the Coordinating Die. I created the background by stamping the Holiday Confetti on a red cardstock in Hampton White Pigment ink and die cutting with the largest layer from the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. I also stamped an additional sentiment on the bottom in Noir Dye ink. I adhered the background panel on a top folding A2 black cardbase and popped up the die cut image. I added tiny dots of gold Stickles here and there and finished the card off by adding some Clear Rhinestones and Glass Slippers Sequins.
