The Ton 2016 Fall Release Blog Hop

Welcome to The Ton 2016 Fall Release Blog Hop !!!




You should have arrived here from the Justine Hovey's blog! If you want to start from the first stop, please click here

We revealed during our Release week new 18 clear stamps and 5 rubber cling stamps which include the Christmas Poinsettia set - a mini 2x3 stamp set which will be included in all orders over $100 (before shipping and taxes) along with 14 dies and 5 Couture Mixes.

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments and support during our Release days! Hope you enjoyed it and got many inspirations for your next projects! 

Today we are celebrating our new Release with our amazing Guest designers on this Blog Hop! 

For today's event I've created two cards with our new goodies :)!


The first one is a CAS creation. I tried to make a present wrapped with green and red ribbons. The striped ribbons were stamped using Minor Stripes Cling background stamp. I inked up only a part of the stamp, covering up the area which I didn't want to stamp and stamped directly on the card base once in Lipstick Red and again perpendicularly to it in Deep Emerald dye ink. I added a golden line to each of the ribbon using a gel pen.


For my pine bough decoration I stamped the pine cones, needles and holly from Holiday Cones stamp set. I used Found Topaz dye ink for the first layer of the cones and gold heat embossed them in second layer. The pine needles and holly leaves were stamped in Soft GardenBright FernDeep Emerald and Hot Tourmaline dye ink and the red berries in Lipstick Red, on which I added some shade using colored pencils. All the elements were then fussy cut (coordinating dies are now available!) and arranged on the card along with some golden thread and two jingle bells hanging down. The sentiment is from the Brushed Merry stamp set which I gold heat embossed on the green ribbon. To finish off I added Glossy Accents on the red berries.


My second card is featuring the Scenes: Grand Stairway Cling background, Born Classy, Fresh Cut Garden Roses, Christmas Poinsettia Mini and Thankful Cornucopia stamp sets. To make a scene of a warm and cozy livingroom in holiday season I started off by stamping and gold heat embossing the Grand Stairway stamp on a watercolor cardstock. After I colored the scene using Starry colors (shimmery watercolor), I trimmed the panel down to 4 by 5.5 inch. I adhered some red gold glitter tape from our thin Glitter Tape Sampler pack on one side of the card base and mounted the watercolor panel flat on that.


The Christmas tree was made with the peacock feather decoration of the dress from Born Classy stamp set. I stamped the upper part in Caribbean Turquoise and Ocean Teal dye ink and the bottom of the tree in Hot Tourmaline and Ocean Teal dye ink. I then clear heat embossed them to watercolor it in gold. The pot is actually a vase from the Fresh Cut Garden Roses stamp.
I fussy cut the christmas tree and foam mounted it on the front panel. The Ornaments are circles I punched out from our Adhesive Glitter Paper Mix. I adhered them onto the tree and added Glossy Accents for glassy look.  The sentiment from the Christmas Poinsettia Mini stamp set was stamped in Ocean Teal and Noir dye ink on the gold heat embossed banner from the Thankful Cornucopia stamp set.

That's it from me today. Make sure to hop along with us for amazing inspirations and of course to get a chance to win one of our giveaways!

The Ton 2016 Fall Release Day 4

Hello and Welcome to The Ton's 2016 Fall Release Day 4 !



All our new stamps, dies and Couture Mixes are now available in our Shop !!! 


Today to complete our reveal of 2016 Fall Release The Ton is showcasing 2 rubber cling background stamps and 3 clear stamps:  Poinsettia Garden Background, Holiday Border, Brushed Merry, Brushed Cheers, Holiday Confetti and I will show you today the incentive stamp Christmas Poinsettia Mini in my card.
Today's Couture Mix is Wintergreen Frost



     


My first card was made with the beautiful Holiday Border Cling background stamp. This is 4.5 by 5.75 inch in size. So it fits perfectly on a A2 sized card. 


I decided to use alcohol inks as my coloring medium for this card. As the entire image is filled with so many details, I didn't color it after heat embossing as I usually do. This time I stamped the Holiday Border on a glossy cardstock in Lemon Drop dye ink and then applied the alcohol inks (Watermelon, Poppyfield, Butterscotch and Citrus) on the image and tilted the cardstock to move the ink. Interestingly the stamped lines could keep the alcohol ink inside, not as good as heat embossed lines but it worked pretty well! Only a few areas show some alcohol ink outside the lines as you can see. After the alcohol ink was completely dry I inked up the Holiday Border stamp with an embossing ink and stamped it again with the help of Misti to heat emboss it in gold.
The Sentiment is from the Mistletoe Kisses stamp set and was stamped in our Noir dye ink. For some more dimension I added white Pico Embellisher on the berries of Mistletoes.


Now to my second card which showcases the Brushed Merry, Christmas Poinsettia Mini and the Coord. Outlines: Holiday Cones stamp sets.


I started off by stamping the bold Brushed Merry sentiment on a white cardstock in Noir dye ink and cut it out from the panel using a cutting machine. I then stamped the layered small poinsettias from the Christmas Poinsettia Mini stamp set in Lipstick Red and Valentine Red dye ink, the leaves in Soft Garden and Bright Fern dye ink after masking the poinsettia. The pine needles from the Coord. Outlines: Holiday Cones stamp set was randomly stamped in ombre look using  Soft GardenBright Fern and Deep Emerald dye inks on the panel.
The sparkle on the sentiment and on the borders were achieved by our Holo Silver Adhesive Foil paper which I adhered on the card base. I think it gives the card quite festive look! After I foam mounted the front panel, I finished off the card by adding a bit of Stickles on the center of the mini poinsettias.
"Christmas" will find its place inside of the card :)!


I have two more cards to share with you today, for which I used our new Poinsettia Garden rubber cling background stamp.

This is my third card!


To start off I made a yellow-pink panel blended with our Lemon DropPeach BlossomHollywood Star and Grand Fuchsia dye inks. I then stamped the Poinsettia Garden Background using an embossing ink and clear heat embossed it. To show up the image I blended again the same inks and Lipstick Red dye ink on the clear heat embossed panel.  I stamped the Poinsettia Garden Background stamp on my kraft card base as well using our Hampton White pigment ink.
I trimmed the front panel, gold heat embossed the side edges and the sentiment from the Scripty Holiday Greetings stamp set. I then adhered the panel on the card base using some foam adhesive. I added thin strips of our Gold Adhesive glitter paper on the card base along the side borders of the front panel.

The gold heat embossed vellum poinsettias and candle are from the Coord. Outlines: Fresh Cut Garden Poinsettias stamp set. I added some yellow dots of Pico Embellisher and some crystal Stickles on them.
To finish off I scattered a few sequins from our new Santa's Sneezes Couture Mix.


Now to my last card for the Day 4!


For this card I played with alcohol inks again :)! To start off, I stamped the Poinsettia Garden rubber cling background stamp on my glossy cardstock in our Vanilla Frosted Cupcake dye ink. I wanted a very light color to use the image as my guide while coloring using alcohol inks, so I could know where I should go with which color. I then started with coloring. I used quite a few colors of alcohol inks: Purple Twillight, Wild Plum, Raspberry, Shell Pink, Butterscotch, Lemonade, Citrus, Pesto, Pool and Aqua. I colored the poinsettias in pink ~ purple, pine cones and needles in brown~ green and filled the rest with light pink and blue tone. After the alcohol inks were all dried, I stamped the Poinsettia Garden background stamp again using an embossing ink and heat embossed it in opaque white. I then prepared my card base with some purple Adhesive Glitter paper. The front panel was cut in an angle, matted by some purple cardstock and foam mounted on the card base. The sentiment from the Scripty Holiday Greetings stamp set was stamped in our Grape Crush dye ink on a piece of white cardstock, layered with the same purple cardstock and adhered on the front panel. To finish off I added sprinkles of sequins from our Royal Garden Party Couture Mix.



All new stamps, dies and couture mixes are now available in The Ton shop. 

For all purchases of $75 (before taxes and shipping), Effie will include our new Hazelnut Kisses Couture Mix with your order. For all purchases over $100 (before taxes and shipping), Effie will include the Hazelnut Kisses mix and a mini 2x3 Christmas Poinsettia set as free gifts in your order!

The Ton 2016 Fall Release Day 3

Hello and Welcome to The Ton's 2016 Fall Release Day 3 !



Are you enjoying our Release week? Today The Ton has five new clear stamps to reveal! 
Fresh Cut Poinsettias, Coord. Outlines: Fresh Cut Poinsettias, Holiday Cones, Coord. Outlines: Holiday Cones and Mistletoe Kisses. There are poinsettias, cones and candles; must-have items to get ready for upcoming holiday season in layered look and in outlines for you who love to color in!!!

Today's Couture Mix is called Elf Stockings!   

     


All our new stamps, dies and Couture Mixes will be available TOMORROW!!! 



For today I've created two cards with poinsettias.


My first card is a shaker card featuring the Fresh Cut Poinsettias stamp set. I started off by stamping a layered poinsettia image four times in our Lipstick Red, Valentine Red and Pink Derby dye inks. For more depth I stamped the third layer once more in Pink Derby. The center of the poinsettias was gold heat embossed. I then drew a circle in the middle of the panel and cut the shaker window along the circle and outlines of stamped poinsettias. I added gold glitter border to the shaker window using our Gold Adhesive Glitter paper.


For the background of the shaker window I gold heat embossed the biggest firework image from the Pyrotechnics stamp set. For the shaker element I used the gold sequins from Cinderella's Ride Couture Mix and red sequins from our new Santa's Sneezes Couture Mix.
The sentiment is from the  Mistletoe Kisses stamp set. I gold heat embossed it on a piece of clear acetate sheet and cut it to make a double fishtail banner. I then adhered the both ends of the banner using two golden rhinestones and glue dots onto the card. 


For my second card I used the Coord. Outlines: Fresh Cut Poinsettias.


I stamped the poinsettias and single leaves from the Coord. Outlines: Fresh Cut Poinsettias in embossing ink on some watercolor cardstock along with some masking and heat embossed them in white. These blue poinsettias were colored with Zig brush markers. On the center of the poinsettias I added dots using yellow Pico embellisher. I then cut a circle out from the middle of the panel with cutting machine. I set aside the circle for the sentiment and colored the outside of the circle in light blue. The sentiment is from the Mistletoe Kisses stamp set. I heat embossed it in silver on the circle. I cut one more circle slightly larger than that from a vellum, matted it under the circle with the sentiment and adhered it onto the front panel. To finish off the card I added a few Sequins from the Glass Slippers sequins Mix. 



All new goodies will be available at The Ton shop starting 7am (EST) tomorrow, September 26th!!! 
For all purchases of $75 (before taxes and shipping), Effie will include our new Hazelnut Kisses Couture Mix with your order.

The Ton 2016 Fall Release Day 2

Hello and Welcome to The Ton's 2016 Fall Release Day 2 !



Hello everyone! Today is the second day of The Ton's 2016 Fall Release week. If you've missed the Day 1, you can catch up here

Today The Ton is showcasing 3 clear stamps : Plus OneBorn ClassyCity Girls (Retail Therapy) and 3 rubber cling background stamps : Folk Art Florals Background, Scenes: Grand Stairway and Scenes: Dept. Store. Coordinating dies and 5 basic word dies in our gorgeous scripty font will be available on Monday Sep. 26, too! (Stop by The Ton blog for more details about our dies ! :))
Today's Couture Mix is called Santa's Sneezes :)! 
They are such unique stamp sets, with which you have endless possibilities to build a classy or fun scene for your projects! Take a look at these gorgeousnesses! 



All our new stamps, dies and Couture Mixes will be available on Monday, Sep. 26th.


I have created three cards for today's debut stamp sets. 


The first card is featuring the City Girls (Retail Therapy) stamp as main image and the Scenes: Dept. Store for the background. I started off by stamping the Scenes: Dept. Store on my card base once in our Crystal Pewter dye ink and then using embossing ink to heat emboss it with some clear embossing powder. I blended our Soft Orchid dye ink on the bottom part of the card base and stamped the sentiment in Noir dye ink.


The girl with shopping bags and boxes from  City Girls (Retail Therapy) stamp set was silver heat embossed on another piece of white cardstock. I colored the bags and boxes with stardust glitter pens and some glaze pens in bright colors and her legs with Copic markers. I fussy cut the girl (coordinating dies will be available on Sep. 26.) and foam mounted her on the card base. I then added two soft green gems on her shoes for some sparkle.


For my second card I stamped Folk Art Florals Background Cling stamp using embossing ink on some water color paper and heat embossed it in white. I then sprinkled some Brusho pigment powders (White, Violet and Brilliant red) on it and sprayed pearlized water. After the watercolor panel was dried, I trimmed it to A2 size and narrowed it down by about a quarter inch. I added on the right side of my top folding card base some iridescent sparkle embossing powder and a thin strip of a structured dark violet cardstock, which I used for the white heat embossed sentiment from the Scripty Greetings stamp set as well.  The watercolor panel was adhered flat on the card base and the sentiment panel was foam mounted on it.


To adorn this card I used the big rose and leaves from the Coordinating Outlines: Fresh Cut Garden Roses stamp set which debuted yesterday. I white heat embossed them on a vellum and fussy cut them to add onto the card. (Coordinating dies will be available! :))  I rounded two left corners and finished off my card by adding two clear rhinestones. 


The Born Classy stamp set is the main actor in my last card! I stamped the outline of this singer on a piece of white card stock using our copic friendly Caviar Hybrid ink. I then stamped the solid part of her dress using the same ink. I colored her with Copic markers and then stamped the solid part of the dress once again using embossing ink to heat emboss it with diamond sparkle embossing powder. The microphone stand was sketched by hand, cut and heat embossed in silver two times. I then prepared my black card base. First of all I adhered a piece of our Silver adhesive Glitter Paper showing a spotlight. The sentiment from the Born Classy stamp set was stamped and silver heat embossed twice. I then stamped the Folk Art Florals Background cling stamp on the card base using an watermark ink to give the background a subtle pattern.

The singer was adhered using some foam adhesive and the microphone stand flat on the stage. To finish off this card I added the tiny flowers from our Candy Cane Garden Couture Mix on her dress.



All new stamps, dies and couture mixes will be available in the shop on Monday, September 26 at 7am (EST).
For all purchases of $75 (before taxes and shipping), Effie will include our new Hazelnut Kisses Couture Mix with your order.
