The Ton 4th Anniversary Release Blog Hop



Hi peeps and welcome to day 1 of The Ton anniversary release blog hop. From January 5 to January 8, 2019 we are celebrating The Ton's 4th anniversary with some fantastic line up.

Effie has introduced 9 new designs for this release. There are some free gifts with purchase promotions ongoing. Head over to The Ton Stamps' blog for more details.

For today's hope, I am playing with my two favorites!!

First up, is this beauty using Smiling Cosmos. Peeps, this set is awesome! So fun to color and I sure love the way my card turned out.




Originally, I was going to use to do the sentiment in the flower color. You know, layer it up and then use the die cut word to create tone on tone sentiment. But, while doing the layer, I really like the way the white sentiment stands out against the colorful background. So, I decided to keep it white and use the die cut letters for a second card.

The sentiment Hope Your Day Is As and As You Are is from previous release Haute Stacks set. I actually got brave enough to cut the sentiment apart, so I can use them to customize my sentiment on this card. And, yay... I am still breathing! LOL, it was a bit nerve wrecking for me to actually cut stamp apart!!




Here's the second card using the colored die cut letters from making the first card. Leave the rest black and white and I think it lends certain elegance. Basically, this card is flip version of the first card. ;)




I simply lined up the letters to the flowers lines. Oh yes, using Misti definitely help in stamping the flowers in same exact position as the first card. So glad, I haven't moved the stamp from my Misti when I switched idea in the middle.




Long, long time ago I sent request to Effie to create bouquet with lantern and as always by the time she came up with the design and created Special Day Lantern set, it makes my jaw dropped. 




I stamped and heat embossed the lantern with Rose gold embossing powder. This set can be used for any occasion. From wedding to birthday to sympathy card, the option is plenty!!

Teri Smith said...

I really like your Cosmos cards. They are such cheerful blooms. You know, when I saw the small images of the stamp sets on the Ton Page at the beginning of the blog hop, I wasn't really sure what the one stamp set was about. But now that I've seen it used I think it is more than wonderful. Lanterns with candles & a bouquet of flowers - who can ask for more? Your card is lovely.

Teresa Doyle said...

These are all beautiful cards Vera but I have to admit the lantern card is my fave. This is the most beautiful lantern I have ever seen in a stamp.
