The Ton May 2019 Release

Hi all and welcome to The Ton May's release. Effie has released 11 new stamps today along with coordinating cut files! In addition to new designs, we have some giveaways and a free gift with purchase. Read on for giveaway details and don' forget to head over to The Ton's blog for more free gift with purchase details.

For my first card, I am showcasing the beautiful Abstract Peonies and mix it up with Happy Florals.

There's just something about soft coloring flowers that often call my names. I mean, sometimes I started a card with the intention of using brighter, bolder color & still ended up up with soft coloring. Hah!! 

For this card I simply stamped all the flowers on a panel of cardstock and once I am happy with it simply layer it with a soft blue cardstock and finished by stamping sentiment and adhered some sequins.

Now, for my next card, I did successfully used bright colors. Yay! ;)

I stamped the Scenes Parisian Cafe and pair with it with an oldie but goodie City Girls: Retail Therapy set. I don't want the background to overwhelm the scene, so I just keep it black and white and only colored the girl & the shopping bags/boxes.

For the sentiment I used the birthday sentiment from Macarons set, another oldie set. I love it when I get to show older stamps some love. Make me feel better when they're actually being used.

No release is complete without giveaway, right? We're giving away 3 stamps from our new release! Leave a comment on The Ton's blog and each participating design team member's blog to qualify to win one of three stamps. Comment period will close on the 28th and winners will be announced on The Ton's blog after.

Please note that all NEW RELEASE ORDERS WILL BEGIN SHIPPING ON MAY 31. So,  you have plenty of time to do your shopping list. :)

SugarPea Sweet 2 Repeat Blog Hop

Hi everyone. By now, hopefully you have the new SugarPea goodies on your stash to play with. And, as always, the SugarPea team is ready with a line of inspiration.

For today, I can't help but chose to play with the sweet Strike Up The Band set. A parade of cute critters? Yes, please. :)

Since I want to fit quite a few of the critters on my card, I decided to make a long card. Colored a panel with various distress oxide ink and sprinkle with some water for added intereest. Adhere to the card base. Next, stamped, die cut and colored all the critters and then arrange them on the card. I used foam adhesive for all my critters as I love dimension on my cards.

How cute is that baby elephant? I find him irresistible!! Oh, and the floating hedgehog? Love...

Below is the list of the hop participants. I hope you will join us hopping along and SPD also giving away $20 gc to the shop. Simply leave a comment along the way. Thank you all for stopping by here & wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
