Poppies & Gold!

Hello, everyone! It’s Jenny here and I’m over at The Ton’s blog today! For today’s project, I created a card with Thoughtful Poppies stamp set, which is one of my favorite stamp set from the newest release. I watercolored this beautiful image with the Zig markers and added tons of gold to it. I LOVE gold and watercoloring floral images, so it was lots fun creating this card! Hope you’d stop by at The Ton’s blog and check out the details!

For this project, I created a beautiful floral card using the Dahlia Close Up Cling stamp and the Brushed You stamp set, with green and gold in my mind. While coming up with the color scheme, I thought of the shamrocks and the pot of gold.
Let’s take a look! 🙂
ton_marchluckyfe2
  • I started the card by stamping the Dahlia Close Up Cling stamp on the Bristol Smooth cardstock in Versamark. I heat embossed the image in white. Then I colored the entire image with green and yellow Zig markers. I blended out the colors with clear sparkled pen instead of clear water. It’s one of my favorite ways to watercolor. When it was completely dry, I trimmed the panel down to 5.5″x4″ and set it aside.
  • I stamped the sentiment “so lucky to have you as my friend” from the Brushed You stamp set on the 5.5″x 5″ vellum in versamark and heat embossed in gold. I hid some strong double sided tape on the back of big “you” and wrapped in around the entire watercolor panel. I taped it on the back so it doesn’t move around.
  • I adhered strips of the Glossy Fine Gold Adhesive Glitter paper on the sides of a A2 sized card base. I adhered the main panel on the card base using fun foam and finished the card by adding some Medallion Gold sequins.

The Ton February Challenge – Love

ton_febchallenge_badge

 

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a fabulous week! I would like to share a card I created for The Ton’s February Challenge. The theme is LOVE and how perfect is that theme for the month of February?!

I chose the Brushed Love and Beautiful Day Bicycle stamp set from the most recent new release to create this card. I think this card would be a perfect for a friend or a special someone. 🙂

Without further ado, here’s the card!

ton_challenge_feb_fe1

 

  • I started the card by stamping “love” image from the Brushed Love stamp set repeatedly on a A2 sized smooth white cardstock in Ballet Slippers Dye, Hollywood Star Dye, Cosmopolitan Pink Hybrid, and Valentine Red Dye ink.
  • Then I stamped the beautiful bicycle image from the Beautiful Day Bicycle stamp set in Noir Dye ink and colored it with some Prismacolor coloring pencils. I cut the image using cutting machine. I added some shimmer with Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen and some white dots with gel pen to add more interest.
  • On a A2 sized card base, I adhered the background panel. I covered the entire panel with vellum and added strips of Fine Transparent Adhesive Glitter paper on the sides. Then I adhered the bicycle image with foam tape to pop it up.
  • I stamped the sentiment on the black cardstock in Versamark and heat embossed in white. I cut it down to a thin banner and adhered it with foam tape.
  • I finished the card by adding some sequins from the Valentine Frost Couture Mix.

Hello and welcome to The Ton’s 2017 Anniversary 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 our anniversary celebration blog hop I created couple of floral cards for our Anniversary celebration blog hop and I had so much fun coloring them both! I hope you enjoy these cards as much as I did creating them!

 

Here is the 1st card! I used one of my favorite Anniversary Release product, the Poppy Garden Cling stamp!

Ton_PoppyG_FE1.jpg

  • I stamped the Poppy Garden Cling stamp on a watercolor paper in Versamark and heat embossed with glitter gold embossing powder. I colored the entire panel with Gansai Tambi watercolors and let it dry completely.
  • I trimmed the panel down to 5.5″ square, swiped the edges with Versamark and heat embossed with the same embossing powder.
  • I trimmed a black cardstock down to 5.75″ square panel, adhered strips of our Glossy Fine Gold Adhesive paper on all 4 edges, and adhered it on the black card base (6″ square).
  • I stamped the sentiment from the Basic Labels Stamp set in Noir Dye ink on a white smooth cardstock, fussy cut, and adhered it on the watercolor panel.
  • Then I adhered the watercolor panel on the card using foam tape and finished the card by adding some Medallion Gold sequins.

Here is the 2nd card! For this card, I used our new beautiful Morning Glory Border cling stamp and the Brushed Hugs stamp set (revealed on Day 2).

ton_morningg_fe2

  • I stamped the Morning Glory border image on a kraft cardstock and colored with Copic markers. I added some highlights on the flowers and around the entire image with white coloring pencil.
  • Then I stamped “hugs” image from the new Brushed Hugs stamp set in Noir Dye ink multiple times and quickly heat embossed it with with clear embossing powder. I also stamped the rest of the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed in white.
  • I die cut the panel using the largest layer of our Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it on a A2 black cardbase. I tied natural twine around the card and finished the card off by adding some clear Dew Drops and some sequins from our new Disco Spring Couture Mix (Revealed on Day 3).
