October Release Blog Hop at The Ton


Hello and welcome to my stop of the The Ton's October Release BlogHop. If hopping from the beginning, you should be arriving from Jenny's blog.. 
My Teammate Eunji has designed many of the new stamps. She is So very talented:)))  It has been a pleasure coloring the florals...I'm THRILLED that Effie has collaborated  with Eunji to make the designs into Clear Stamp form.  There are SO many gorgeous new bloom sets to work with...deciding on one was difficult. I decided to create with LOOSE ROSES for today's hop.

Here's my card:
I started out by stamping a panel with Wishful Rose
in Vanilla Frosted Cupcake Dyetrimmed it with the largest Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and set it aside for layering later.
 Then I did some No-Line coloring with the leaves and blooms of LOOSE ROSES on Bristol Smooth watercolour paper using the Zig Clean Color Markers. You can see a quick video I shared on Instagram of the leaves being colored. click HERE to view.

 I wanted the arrangement to be fuller and more airy, so I added several bits of Pragmatic Wreaths, which I stamped using the Mini MISTI and more watercolor markers.


 I cut the Blooms, Leaves and Bits of Wreath out with Coordinating Dies. And assembled them onto a clean White panel trimmed down to 3.25"x4.75" using. I cut 3 layers to lift it up off the main stamped panel. Sentiment is stamped with Aspen Cocoa Dye.

Hope you liked my card.   Enjoy the rest of the HOP:)) 
Your next stop is to see VERA:))

Inspired By challenge #69

Inspired by the ORANGE pumpkins and wildflowers, I reached for the Fresh Cut Carnations and Large Florals: Carnation from The Ton.
I tried out a "new to me" masking technique shared by Lydia Evans.. Using CLEAR Heat embossing over a stamped image for the mask. It worked very well, and no fussy cutting necessary:))
Trimmed the panel with Crazy Double stitched rectangle die.  Added the HUGS word die and a few Nuvo Drops.

Inspired By All The Little Things #68

Inspired by the swag of blooms and soft texture in the blue gown:))
The Swag on my card is created with two new sets from The Ton Stamps called Celebration Rose Cluster
and  Country Rose Cluster.  Just a hint of masking is all it took to make them appear as if they are one bouquet. The BG is Freestyle Stripes inked with Stormy Sky Distress InkColored with Ziggys:))
After coloring and adding the sentiment dies I got out a Sparkler pen...bad idea! It dripped blops that I did not want:(( never fear!! NUVO drops to the rescue:)))

Essentials By Ellen October Release Blog Hop Day 1-Cozy Lady


Hello! And Welcome to my blog:) How Exciting to be highlighting the COZY LADY stamp and Coordinating Die set being released TODAY at Ellen Hutson! Take a look ⇩⇩. Doesn't she seem like a kindred spirit; bosom buddy? and oh, so COZY?!? Love her scrunchy, comfy socks:)
Leading Ladies – Cozy Lady
by Brandi Kincaid
Leading Ladies – Cozy Lady Dies
 by Brandi Kincaid


I found coloring with Zig Clean Color Markers on the Cozy Lady set to be relaxing:) 

Other Essentials By Ellen used:  For the sentiment bloom. Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Mondo Magnolia by Julie Ebersole
I DO LOVE embellishing with Nuvo Dots.... Directly onto my finished cardfront:)


I took the Cozy Lady outdoors for my next card.

Colored again with Ziggys and surrounded with several die cut leaves, and other fall themed goodies found in the set. Each have their own coordinating dies for quick cutting. A soft flurry of falling leaves are stamped in the background with Sand Dunes Crisp Ink.

Stamped a vibrant background for my last card. and colored with Ziggys and Copic markers
Then I stamped the Cozy Lady in VERSAFINE INK PAD, VINTAGE SEPIA and trimmed her out with the coordinating die.  Popped her in front of the colored background and placed a Handmade tag from Altenew in her hands inked with a sentiment from the Cozy Lady set. And finished with the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Brushstroke Love by Julie Ebersole inked with the same Vintage Sepia pad above.

That's all from me today! I hope you have found this Cozy Lady set as sweet as I have:)) 
If hopping from the beginning you should have arrived from the blog of Jan Tinklenberg.  Your next stop is Svitlana Shayevich, at Craftwalks.

Inspired By All The Little Things #67

I've created a soft and subtle Thank You card inspired by the muted pinks in the photo.

Glueing the negative cuts from Layered Floral cover die onto a softly inked panel of distress oxides, took a bit of time. Press n Seal keeps the pieces in place after lifting them from the metal die.  Thank you die from Altenew.
