Hi everyone. We are celebrating The Ton's April 2020 Release with 13 new sets (with delayed shipping - see The Ton's post for more details).
I am trying to balance my time between watching news and self care by not watching news and doing something fun, which this past weekend means lots of watercoloring. This release has some of my favorite sets that I can guarantee go to my always keep stash.
Let's get on with it, right away, shall we? For my first card, I am showcasing this gorgeous Lily Fields set. I am so in love with this set.
I started by stamping and heat embossed the image on Master Touch watercolor cardstock. I was curious to see how this set would look on the line patterned watercolor cardstock. All I can say, I totally lost myself in coloring this. When I looked at the clock it was literally almost midnight. I just didn't want to stop.
Once I am done with the panel, I adhere it to the card base. For the sentiment, I stamped & heat embossed "Sending" from Peony Laurel set on a piece of vellum and die cut the letter for the word "LOVE" using the Modern Alphas Coverplate Dies. Finished by adding some jewel enamel drop.
If my first card, all feminine and flowery, my second card is more on the festive side, using Confetti Balloons, Mega Confetti Numbers & Confetti Alphas.
I started by stamping the first balloons with Amber Citrine ink pad. Then, I created a couple mask for the balloon and stamped the other balloons repeatedly in Soft Garnet, Soft Garden, Caribbean Turquoise, Azurite & Soft Amethyst. Then I stamped the sentiment, number and the corner confetti. Since I am into jewel enamel drop, I used it here for a little extra oomph.
So, there you go, a couple cards that I hope help brighten your day and hopefully inspire you to get crafty. Now, for more fun stuff, how about a giveaway?
