Hi peeps! Welcome to The Ton Summer Kickoff Blog Hop. I am so excited to have you joining us as we have some pretty & fun projects to share with you. This hop basically just a fun hop to highlight products that been released recently. And, we have quite a few!!
So, let's get on with it, shall we as I have quite a few cards to share with you. 1st up is this happy, colorful card using Butterfly Wings - Swallowtail set.
I first stamped the butterfly wings to yupo paper and then add the alcohol inks to the paper, blowing the ink around with a straw to help spread the color. Then before the ink complete dry, I added some loose gold gilding flakes. Once that done, I die cut the word hello from Peony Laurel dies set.
Next is a card that is just a slight variation from the 1st card.
This card was actually my almost fail card. When I did this card, I did the alcohol ink first and then when I tried to stamp the wings, the ink just wouldn't stick. So, after almost ditching it, I found that I can save it by using the Pop-Up Butterfly Dies - Swallowtail (I simply trim the part that I don't need, you'll see it on my last card).
Now, my last card definitely complete opposite of the first two cards. This one all soft!! I stamped Magnolia Fields for the background and added some shadows to the flower buds with Copic markers. Then I stamped the Butterfly Wings Monarch, color it with Copic and die cut the wing with the Pop-Up Butterfly Dies Monarch. The sentiment is from Peony Laurel set.
Now there's 5 pieces on the Pop-Up Butterfly Dies Monarch, 2 of them are for the pop-up inside the card (although you can use it for the outside just like I did with my 2nd card, by trimming the rectangle strip that allow you to adhere the wings inside). Once I die cut the pieces, I inked them and then slide the pieces together and adhere to the card. And, tadddaaaa... you have this beautiful surprise when you open the card. Gorgeous right?
Of course, we have giveaway!! We are giving away a stamp set from the Ton of your own choice (not including the bundle) for each stop on the hop. To qualify you need to leave a comment on each blog by midnight Sunday, June 10, 2018. Winners will be announced on The Ton blog shortly after that.
