The Ton Fall 2016 Release Blog Hop


All new release products (Stamps, Dies and Gilding) are available now!  
If you are starting at the beginning of the hop you should have arrived from Lisa Harrolle 's blog..
Now, if you are joining us late for the party don't miss the previews from this week: DAY 1DAY 2DAY 3,and DAY 4

It has been a pleasure creating with all the new Stamp sets from THE TON!  There were only 2 sets that I was not able to work into cards for release week... I have two cards to share with you today:)

Thanksgiving is coming very soon..which makes the THANKFUL CORNUCOPIA a timely set to have on hand. There are coordinating dies that go with this set.
  •  I stamped the large image with Noir ink and colored it in with Ziggys. 
  • Used the Double Stitched Circle dies to trim around the colored image 
  • stamped the sentiment from SCRIPTY HOLIDAY GREETINGS first in Beach Blondie and then a second time in Soft Garden to match the color in the green apples:)



This type of background stamp set makes coloring after Embossing VERY EASY!! I LOVE how the shapes come alive with color:)) Effie has masterfully combined outlined images along with solid shapes to create a perfect balanced.  
  • For this card, I heat embossed the HOLIDAY BORDER CLING STAMP in clear EP on white #90 watercolor paper. 
  • Colored around with the Ziggys and then added clean water with a brush. 
  • I went back in with the ziggys to add definition and shadows. 
  • The sentiment is from HOLIDAY CONFETTI, which I embossed in gold EP
  • I cut the panel with Double Stitched Rectangle Dies..saved the tiny edge frame and colored it with the darkest pink Ziggy  and replaced it around the card.

    You nailed it - your description of the background identifying that there are outlines and solid shapes. I couldn't quite figure out what the "it" that made it so fabulous was, and then there you were, telling me. Thank you.
