Incentive Products


 

Today we are revealing 5 stamp sets, the coordinating dies, 1 Couture Mix, and 3 incentive products!


 

Here’s the first card:

Ton_Day1_Magnolia_FE1

I’m showcasing our new Magnificent Magnolias stamp set. This is definitely one of my favorite from this release!

  • I started the card by stamping the beautiful magnolia cluster image on 2 corners in Versamark ink. I heat embossed the image with white embossing powder and colored with Color Burst powders. The colors I used are Peony, Lemon Yellow, Sap Green, and Lime Green. I borrowed brown from Mijello Mission Gold watercolors.
  • I trimmed the panel down to 4″x5.5″ and stamped the sentiment in our Noir Dye ink.
  • On a pink A2 cardbase, I layered a background panel (adhered Transparent Glitter Glossy Fine Adhesive paper  on the sides). Then, I popped up the watercolored panel using fun foam.
  • Finished the card by adding Mix Dew Drops and Glass Slippers sequins.

 

Ton_Day1_Magnolia_CE1


 

Here’s the second card!

Ton_Day1_MagCling_FE1

 

I am featuring our new gorgeous Magnolia Field Cling stamp for this card. I colored this card exactly as the first card, but I embossed the edges with lavender glitter and adhered it on a black 6×6 card base. I couldn’t bring myself to cut this beautiful image down any smaller than that! 🙂  The sentiment is borrowed from our previous release set, Large Peony 4, stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in white. I added some sequins from Pink Neptune Couture Mix and Clear Rhinestones to dress up the card.

Here you can see the close-up of the card. I love how the pigments bloomed as I watercolored the images via wet-on-wet technique.

Ton_Day1_MagCling_CE1

 


 

Here is the 3rd card!

Ton_Day1_Carnation_FE1

 

For this card, I created a simple card featuring our new Large Florals: Carnations stamp set. This set gives a major bang to a card without much effort.

  • I started off by stamping the layers of the large carnation image in Ballet Slipper Dye, Hollywood Star Dye, and Red Sangria Hybrid ink on a white smooth cardstock.
  • I trimmed the cardstock down to 3.75″x5.5″, stamped the sentiment in Noir Dye ink, and wiped the edges with Hollywood Star Dye ink pad.
  • I wrapped the panel with some natural color twine and popped it up on the pink A2 cardbase (decorated with Transparent Glitter Glossy Fine Adhesive paper) using fun foam.
  • I added some accents with pink glitter gel pen and finished the card by adhering our new Sugar Cookie Couture Mix and Glass Slippers sequins.

 

Ton_Day1_Carnation_CE1


 

For the 4th and final card for today, I watercolor-stamped our new Waterfall stamp set to create a magical scene.

Ton_Day1_Waterfall_FE1

  • I scribbled Zig markers on the Waterfall images from our new Waterfall stamp set (some spritzed with water) and stamped on a watercolor cardstock. The Zig marker colors I used are: Light Pink, Light Carmine, Lemon Yellow, Pale Green, Beige, Light Gray, and Gray Brown.
  • I waited for the panel to dry completely and die cut it down using the largest die from Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. I gently added on Cali Blue Dye ink with Clarity Brush around the edges of the panel. I also heat embossed the edges with glitter powder.
  • I stamped the sentiment in our Noir Dye ink and adhered the panel on to a white A2 card base.
  • I finished the card by adding some Glass Slipper Sequins and the Clear Rhinestones.

Floral Border stamps – 2 ways

Hello everyone! It’s Jenny here and I’m up on The Ton’s Blog with 4 cards I created using couple of beautiful floral border cling stamps. I absolutely love how these border cling stamps are designed. They are border images built with clusters of beautiful florals images, and they have a hollow space in the middle, perfect to stamp the sentiments or to create shaker cards using the coordinating dies. For today’s projects, I created a set of fun shaker cards, and another set of quick cards with more loose and artistic look. They look very different, but both were so fun to create! I can’t decide which set I like better!

Hope you’d stop by at The Ton’s Blog to check them out!


 

Quick & artistic look

Products used: Sunflower Border Cling stamp (blue card), Poppy Border Cling stamp (pink card), & The New Pretty stamp set (sentiments).

Dot B. Start on Etsy – New Adorable Digi Stamps!

20629142_1413481522083574_988423479_o

 

Hello, everyone! It’s Jenny here and I would like to introduce you to a new fabulous digital stamp shop on Etsy –DotBstamp (https://www.etsy.com/shop/DotBstamp?ref=pr_shop_more)!

There are 5 bundle of images in the shop at the moment, and these absolutely adorable images are illustrated by Eunji. I am a huge fan of her art!

20597739_1413506168747776_1812663987_o

You can check out more details on the shop and the inspirations here: https://eunjoa.blogspot.com/2017/08/dotb-start-on-etsy.html


 

I created  4 cards with some of the sets and I can’t wait to share them with you! Let’s get started! 🙂

Here’s the first card!

Digital Stamp used: Lalala Animal

DotBstamp_Sing_FE2

I started the card by printing the images from the Lalala Animal  digi stamp set. I colored the images with the Copic Markers and fussy cut them out. I traced all the lines with a Black Journaling Pen to make them more bold.

DotBstamp_Sing_CE1

For the background, ink blended Distress inks over the Concerto Layering Stencil . Distress Inks I used are: Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass, Seedless Preserves, and Wilted Violet (Oxide). I also added water splotches for more interest.

When the panel was completely dry, I added die cut framed details and adhered it on a white A2 sized card base. Then I stamped on the sentiment that I thought it goes well with the images.  I popped up the critters with foam tape and adhered the musical note image as well. I added more details with the white gel pen and finished the card by adding some Crystal Iridescent sequins.


 

Here is the 2nd card!

Digi stamp used: Lalala Animal

DotBstamp_Wall_FE1

I had some left over colored images from the first card, so I decided to make a slightly more simple card with one of the image. To create the background, I ink blended the Fire Brick and Barn Door Distress ink over the Bricked Layer Stencil on Bristol Smooth cardstock. When panel was dry, I stamped the sentiment in black ink and adhered the panel on a black A2 card base. Then, I popped up a rectangular frame I made using the largest and the second largest layer from The Ton’s Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. After I adhered the colored image on the card, I felt like I needed something else on the card. So, I borrowed a flower image from the School Animal digi stamp set. I colored it with Copic Markers and adhered it next to the critter.

DotBstamp_Wall_CE1

I added Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops on the eyes, shimmer with Clear Sparkle Pen, and some white gel pen details. I added some Glass Slippers Confetti, Lemon Chiffon, and Key Lime sequins and the card was complete!


 

Here’s the 3rd card!

Digi stamp used: Hawaii Animal

DotBstamp_Hawaii_FE1

I started the card by printing the images from the Hawaii Animal digi stamp set. I colored the images with Copic Markers and added more details with the color pencils and white gel pen. I cut all the images with the ScanNCut2 machine and put it aside.

DotBStamp_Hawaii_CE2

I die cut a circle on a Bristol Smooth cardstock using the 4th largest die from The Ton’s Large Double Stitched Circle Dies. I also used the 4th and 3rd largest die from the same set to created a frame out of Gold Adhesive Glitter paper. To create the beach scene peeking through the window, I used Honey Bee’s Ocean Scene stencils, Ocean Waves dies from Mama Elephant, and the Hillside Border Dies from Lawn Fawn.

DotBstamp_Hawaii_CE1

I adhered the Gold Adhesive Glitter paper on the white A2 card base and adhered all the elements, some popped up with foam tape. I added some Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops on the eyes, added some shimmer with clear Sparkle pen, and finished the card by adding some Medallion Gold sequins and Dew drops.


 

Last but not least, here’s the final card!

Digi stamp used: School Animal

DotBstamp_Schoolbus_FE1

I printed the images from the School Animal digi stamp set and colored them with Copic Markers. I traced all the images with black Journaling Pen and fussy cut them out.

DotBstamp_Schoolbus_CE1

Then I moved on to making the school bus from scratch. I die cut 3 windows on a Bristol Smooth cardstock using Peek-a-Boo Window dies. Then, I cut out the bottom with Circle Dies, and rounded the corners with the Corner Chomper. I added lines with a black pen, stamped the sentiment in black ink, and added twine around the school bus.

DotBstamp_Schoolbus_CE2

On a black A2 card base, I popped up all the images with foam tape, and added some dotted details with Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops. I adhered Glass Slippers sequins and the card was done!


 

I had so much fun creating the cards and I hope you enjoyed the cards! I also hope you’d check out these fun and adorable images by Eunji from DotBstamp on Etsy!

Thank you for stopping by! Have a fabulous day and happy crating!

This month’s theme is Summer, and I thought it’d be perfect opportunity to create a clear acetate card combining few of our fun summer stamp sets! It reminds me of the clear vinyl beach bag that I carry in the summer. 🙂  I’m featuring our Wave stamp set +Die, Palm Tree stamp set + Dies, and the Mountains stamp set. I had so much fun creating this card and can’t wait to share the process!

Here’s the card!

Ton_AugustChallenge_FE1

 

I started the card by stamping all the layers of the images with my MINI MISTI stamping tool.

Here is the list of The Ton’s Couture Color Dye Inks I used:

When I was done with stamping, I die cut using Waves Coordinating Die, and the Palm Tress Coordinating Dies. I stamped the Mountains twice to stack them for the height, and I fussy cut them out.

Ton_AugustChallenge_CE2

I created a top folding A2 sized card base out of sturdy clear acetate. I adhered the wave image on the from of the card. Then, I die cut a blank white wave using the coordinating die and adhered on the top inside to cover up the adhesives as well as create a blank space to write.

Ton_AugustChallenge_CE3

Next, I adhered the mountain and Palm Tress images on the card. I stamped the sentiment and the little seagulls in our Noir Dye ink. I also added strip of Glossy fine Silver Adhesive paper on the bottom for added interest. I finished the card by adding few Silver Metallic and the Glass Slippers sequins.

Ton_AugustChallenge_CE1

 

I think acetate cards are fun and different, and hope I was inspired you to give it a try!

That’s all from me today! Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful day!

Happy crafting!
