The Ton’s Spring 2018 Release Blog Hop

8:00:00 PM


Hello and welcome to the The Ton Spring 2018 Release Blog Hop! It's Dana here and I'm so thrilled to be part of this blog hop. I hope you came from Vera Yates's blog, but if not, please check out full blog hop list in the bottom of this post.

To celebrate The Ton's spring release, I'm sharing two sample cards with you. Let's get started!


I began by stamping beautiful flower image from The Ton Heritage Rose Stamp Set. I used

Please note : I shared full color swatch of The Ton 52 Ink Collection in the bottom of this post.


After stamping the images, I fussy cut them out with scissors. I gold heat embossed sentiments from The Ton Dahlia Bouquet Stamp Set and splattered Picked Raspberry Distress ink with water using paint brush.

I stacked up paper layers as shown and foam mounted all elements on the A2 sized white card base. I embellished rose gold sequins here and there and finished off this card.


My next card is the biggest card I've ever made. I just wanted to showcase this beautiful stamp set in full size and created 5 7/8" square card base using dark brown paper. I then stamped The Ton Dahlia Bouquet Stamp Set onto cold pressed watercolor paper and trimmed it down to 5 5/8" square.


I then watercolored image with Mijello Mission Gold Watercolor Paint and added some details using Copic markers. I splattered black watercolor paint with water over the watercolor panel after making off the stamped image.

To finish, I stamped sentiment from same stamp set 3 times and foam mounted watercolor panel onto card base using craft foam.
