The Ton’s 2017 Anniversary Release Blog Hop




Hi lovely peeps! Welcome to The Ton's 2017 Anniversary release blog hop. You should have arrived here from Chris Dayton's blog. The hop starts at The Ton's Blog.

By now, all the goodies we have shown you are available for purchase at the store. I am curious, what's on your must have list? For me, it's the flowers. I fall in love with The Ton through their flower sets and to this day I consider their flower sets among my favorite.

So, no surprise here, one of my card for today's hop is featuring one of the bloom beauty, the Morning Glory Border. Such fun set to color.





I colored them with ZIG Kuretake Real Clean Brush. Love their bright colors. Blue & green are very soothing & refreshing for me. For some extra texture & embellishment I added the Winter Thaw Couture Mix. It matched this card color scheme so perfectly. The word "My Favorite" was created using Scripty Alpha Upper & Scripty Alpha Lower. Gotta love the freedom to create your own sentiment, right?

For my 2nd card, I turned to the Brushed You sentiment. It's kind of hard to see, but I also used the Freestyle Stripe to add pattern to the left side of the card in tone on tone hue. When you click on the pic below, you can see the card in larger version & it probably showed the stripes better.





I stamped the largest butterfly first, then kind of going back & forth placing the you without stamping it, yet just to make sure I like the butterflies placement. Once all the butterflies are in place, I stamped the word "you" using Misti stamping tool, so I can stamped the gold ink a couple times to get good solid impression. Next,  the fun part!
