The Ton Spring 2021 Release


 Hi all and welcome to The Ton Spring release. We have loads of new fun stamp, dies & stencil sets and also we're releasing 19 new ink pads. I am super excited for this release and playing with the new sets like kids in candy store. Let's dive in to the projects right away, shall we?

First up, I am showcasing Baroque Frame Oval et and pair it with one of the flower from Grouped Fresh Carnations set.



I stamped the frame with Caribbean Turquoise and then die cut it with the matching Baroque Frame Oval Dies. Put it aside and next I stamped, heat embossed, watercolored and die cut the carnation. I decided to stick with clean & simple design to really showcase the beautiful design of the frame.
Adhere the frame and the flower both with foam adhesive. Finish by adding sentiment from previously released Easy Expressions set.

On to the next card.





For this card, I stamped and heat embossed the Mum Close Up cling set on a panel of cardstock. Colored it with Copic markers and once done, I adhere the panel to my card base. For added interest, I adhere a rectangle frame using. I used Rectangle A2 Frames Slim Borders Coverplate Die and  have a  bunch of this rectangle frame ready to go for future projects. For the sentiment I used the word Hugs from Grouped Fresh Daisies. Finished by adding some enamel drops. 

Since, I watercolored this set with  metallic watercolor, it actually has pretty nice shimmer. Here on this pic you can see the shimmer more.




Last but not least, I am showcasing the Many Mums cling stamp.

 


For this card, I am using the smooshing technique. Basically I laid some watercolor on my glass work space, spritz it with water to get it wetter and then laid my watercolor cardstock on top of it. Let dry and then stamped the image. Next, I die cut it with the Scalloped A2 Nested dies and adhere the panel to the card base. Finished by adding the sentiment from Grouped Fresh Daisies.

There, 3 projects showcasing the new sets. I have more projects to share using the new sets and will share it during our Instagram hop. If you haven't follow me on Instagram, I'd love for you to do so. I do share more projects on Instagram. You can find me HERE.

My talented team mates has work hard for this release. Please visit their blogs to see more inspiring projects using the new sets. Thank you all for stopping by here.

The Ton Sunflower Pop Up Dies Release

Hi peeps. Welcome to The Ton release day. Today we're only releasing one set of dies, but it is such a cool set. Introducing Sunflower Pop Up dies.

I always love pop up cards. I think they're fun and when I saw the sneak peek of this dies, I got so excited. 




For the front of my card I start with the background panel, which I create using the Quilted A2 Coverplate die. Adhere the panel to cad base. Next I stamp, die cut the sunflower pieces from an older set from The Ton collection called Fresh Cut Sunflowers.  Arrange and adhere to the card base.

Next, the fun part. The pop up mechanism. Now, it looks a bit complicated, but it really isn't. I simply watch and follow the direction on the instruction video HERE. I got it done with the first try. Just a simple learning curve.



 
The pic above shown how it looks like when the card open 90 degree. Now, in my opinion, it doesn works better when you use less thicker cardstock. Otherwise it gets too bulky. And, instead of using colored cardstock, for y card, I chose to use white cardstock and inked the flowers and the leaves using The Ton Lemon Drop, Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Soft Garden and Bright Fern ink. I feel like I get more depth of colors this way.




So, what do you think? Fun right? Now, my teammates have created more inspiration using this die set. Please check out their wonderful creations. Thank you all so much for stopping by here and I hope you love this die set as much as I do. Happy Thursday!

SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek Day 2

 Hi everyone. Welcome to day 2 of SugarPea Designs sweet peek week. I am excited to share my project for today's sneak peek as it brings me down memory lane.




As a child of the 80s, this Vintage Telephone dies totally reminds me of hours of time spent chatting with my friends. Kind of funny to think that back in those days I can talk for hours on the phone and now, I prefer face to face meeting than talking on the phone.

To make this card more fun, I add rainbow color chevron using the new Chevron Cover Plate. You know what my favorite thing about this phone? It's the number from the Call Me stamp set. The number fit perfectly inside the rotary part of the die cut phone. It's all about the little details for me. Here's a peek of the Call Me set since I only use the number from this set.

We have quite plenty of fun & cute sets for this release that I am excited to share with you. All of the products that we will be introducing this week will be available for purchase starting this Friday, January 22nd at 2PM EST in the SPD Store.




For today, I am showcasing Sweet Swans & Swan Love. This set capture what I love of SugarPea collection. They always have something sweet & simply adorable. This set is proof. I used  the squares from Card Front Element Builder III to ground the swans and fill it with some ink blending before adding the swans & the duckling. I think this card would be perfect for my niece. What do you think of this set? Sweet & cute, right?

The Ton 6th Anniversary Release Hop


Hi all. Happy new year. I can't  believe that I haven't been blogging since October 2020. Gosh, my blog really got quite neglected. So sorry about that. I do still make cards regularly, but I just been posting them more on my Instagram account.

Well, I am glad to be back on blog land as we celebrating The Ton 6th anniversary. For this celebration. The Ton is releasing 7 new stamp/dies and 4 new standalone dies. I am excited for this release & really looking forward for more creativity in 2021.

Without further delay, let's get on with the card, shall we?



For my card, I am showcasing the fun Ditsy Bits set. And, I have to say, the Quilted Coverplate A2 die is a set that surprise me. At first, I thought it just standard quilted design, till I actually use it. It cuts little hearts instead of just dots or stitch impression. I don't know about you, but these little hearts gets me.  I was like, oooh, look at that, pretty!




To make the hearts stand out a bit more, I back the light blue cardstock with dark teal cardstock, as you can see on the pic above. For the flowers, I stamped them with Hollywood Star, Soft Garnet, Cosmopolitan Pink and Soft Garden. Once stamped, I die cut them using the coordinating Ditsy Bits die. Arrange on the card and finish by adding sentiment.

For my next card, I am using the gorgeous Radiant Roses Standalone Layering Dies.



I just love the layers on  this rose set. It's beautiful and I just love playing with this. I can see more roses cards coming. I always enjoy playing with what I consider classic, timeless set. This set definitely fall  under this category & I love, love this set. maybe because I associated it with my mom's favorite flower. 

I die cut all the pieces from watercolor cardstock and color each layers deeper. To ground the flowers, i add a scallop frame, that I die cut using the 2nd largest frame from Scalloped A2 Nested dies. Arrange flower & leaves, then add sentiment using the new Ribbon General set stamped with Peach Blossom & Coralline and die cut it with coordinating dies.

There you go, 2 fun cards too start my 2021 blog post. ;) 

GIVEAWAY

Fun stuff! We have a little giveaway for this anniversary release. One winner will be randomly chosen from the comments on the blog hop and will be announced on The Ton's Blog on Friday, January 22. The winner will be able to choose a stamp from our 6th Anniversary Release. This giveaway is open to everyone.

The Ton Winter Die Flash Release


 Hi all and welcome to The Ton Winter Flash Die release. Today The Ton is releasing 4 new standalone dies that I think are just perfect to celebrate the cooler weather.

For my card, I am showcasing the Holiday Coffee Dies.



To start, I die cut the background using Grid A2 Coverplate die. Then I die cut all the coffee cup elements. My favorite is the snowflake die & embossed sleeve. It added such fun details. Before putting them together, I ink blended the cup with Soft Garden, Cali Blue, Hollywood Star & Coral Cavern. Adhere the cups to the card base with foam adhesive.

Next, for the sentiment I used Easy Expressions Holiday set and finished the card by adding some Blue Ice Couture sequins mix.

This card actually come together pretty quick and I know my coffee loving friend would love this card. My teammates has created some more fun inspiration for this release. Please check out their blogs for more ideas. Thank you all for stopping by here and my your weekend starts off wonderfully. Cheers...

The Ton October Release

 Hi all and welcome  to The Ton holiday release. The Ton is releasing 14 New Standalone Dies and 2 New Stamps and Coordinating Dies. And, I am honestly super excited for this release as so many of the sets allowed me to create clean & simple cards that I just loved.

Let's get on with it right away. For my 1st card, I am showcasing the pretty & fun Holiday Border dies




The cool thing about this die sets, you can re-arrange the borders to your heart desire. You want the snowflakes border on top? Then place that border on top. No likey? Switch it around. In my opinion, tis is just brilliant. It's the simple thing for me. I love having that option.

I started by watercoloring a panel of watercolor cardstock, let dry and then run it through my Gemini. Tips, to keep the border dies from moving, I taped my Gemini plastic, magnet & spacer together to keep them flat and also taped the dies together with washi tape. You could also use blue tape.




Once that done, trim and adhere the panela nd the pieces to card base. Finished by adding some sequins mixes and die cut the word joy using Modern Alphas Updated.

For my next card, I blended Soft GardenBright Fern & Bright Emerald ink on a piece of cardstock and then die cut it with Pine Tree Dies. Instead of just making 1 card, I decided to use each tree separately to make several cards. Hey, any excuse to get the Christmas card stash growing quickly, I'll use it. Hah! :) I sprayed the tree with white ink and also added some dew drops.

To ground my scene, I die cut the scallop frame using Scalloped Nested A2 Dies. Then I simply arrange the tree and the deer. Oh yes, the deer is from Deer Coverplate Die (another favorite from this release!).




Sentiment from an older Holiday Ornaments set. I used the other trees die cut for the card below.




And, last but not least, this card I made using the Holiday Border dies, Deer Coverplate dies & Bold Alphas Lower Dies




Well peeps, I think this is quite a record for me to share this many cards in one day. There are a lot more inspiration from my teammates. Please check out their blogs for more fun inspiration and thank you all so much for stopping by here. Have a blessed week everyone.
