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.
