The Ton Winter Die Flash Release


 Hi all and welcome to The Ton Winter Flash Die release. Today The Ton is releasing 4 new standalone dies that I think are just perfect to celebrate the cooler weather.

For my card, I am showcasing the Holiday Coffee Dies.



To start, I die cut the background using Grid A2 Coverplate die. Then I die cut all the coffee cup elements. My favorite is the snowflake die & embossed sleeve. It added such fun details. Before putting them together, I ink blended the cup with Soft Garden, Cali Blue, Hollywood Star & Coral Cavern. Adhere the cups to the card base with foam adhesive.

Next, for the sentiment I used Easy Expressions Holiday set and finished the card by adding some Blue Ice Couture sequins mix.

This card actually come together pretty quick and I know my coffee loving friend would love this card. My teammates has created some more fun inspiration for this release. Please check out their blogs for more ideas. Thank you all for stopping by here and my your weekend starts off wonderfully. Cheers...

The Ton October Release

 Hi all and welcome  to The Ton holiday release. The Ton is releasing 14 New Standalone Dies and 2 New Stamps and Coordinating Dies. And, I am honestly super excited for this release as so many of the sets allowed me to create clean & simple cards that I just loved.

Let's get on with it right away. For my 1st card, I am showcasing the pretty & fun Holiday Border dies




The cool thing about this die sets, you can re-arrange the borders to your heart desire. You want the snowflakes border on top? Then place that border on top. No likey? Switch it around. In my opinion, tis is just brilliant. It's the simple thing for me. I love having that option.

I started by watercoloring a panel of watercolor cardstock, let dry and then run it through my Gemini. Tips, to keep the border dies from moving, I taped my Gemini plastic, magnet & spacer together to keep them flat and also taped the dies together with washi tape. You could also use blue tape.




Once that done, trim and adhere the panela nd the pieces to card base. Finished by adding some sequins mixes and die cut the word joy using Modern Alphas Updated.

For my next card, I blended Soft GardenBright Fern & Bright Emerald ink on a piece of cardstock and then die cut it with Pine Tree Dies. Instead of just making 1 card, I decided to use each tree separately to make several cards. Hey, any excuse to get the Christmas card stash growing quickly, I'll use it. Hah! :) I sprayed the tree with white ink and also added some dew drops.

To ground my scene, I die cut the scallop frame using Scalloped Nested A2 Dies. Then I simply arrange the tree and the deer. Oh yes, the deer is from Deer Coverplate Die (another favorite from this release!).




Sentiment from an older Holiday Ornaments set. I used the other trees die cut for the card below.




And, last but not least, this card I made using the Holiday Border dies, Deer Coverplate dies & Bold Alphas Lower Dies




Well peeps, I think this is quite a record for me to share this many cards in one day. There are a lot more inspiration from my teammates. Please check out their blogs for more fun inspiration and thank you all so much for stopping by here. Have a blessed week everyone.
