The Ton’s 2017 Anniversary Release Blog Hop


Welcome to my stop on the Blog Hop for The Ton's 2017 Anniversary Release:) If you're hopping along from the beginning, you should be arriving from the blog of Lisa Harrolle.

The Ton has 26 new stamps for their 2017 Anniversary Release which include three free gift with purchases. For more information on The Ton’s inventive products, head over to The Ton’s blog
All new release products are available now!


I could not choose my favorite set from this Anniversary release..After creating with each one I said, "Oh, this is my FAVORITE", until I moved on to the next one. Ha! I wonder how I got along without the big Brushed Love, Hugs, and You...Swooned over the Dahlia Close Up, giddy for the Party Fans...Drooling over the Macarons, and Thrilled with all the Poppies, Poppies and Poppies!
I could go on:)) but let's get to the hop!

Here is my first Card for today: Looks like a party!
New Stamps used: Brushed You, Party Fans, Sweet Macarons, and Oscar Superlatives
Couture Mixes: Disco Spring Mix and Cotton Candy Puff Mix
Inks: Vanilla Frosted CupcakeBeach BlondieAmber CitrineBallet Slippers,

Soft Orchid, and Orchid Crush Dye 

Double Stitched Rectangle Dies

  • I started out by stamping several of the Party Fans onto white CS in pinks and yellows
  • Heat embossed Brushed You over the top of the fans
  • On a separate piece of CS I embossed the outline image of the pretty stand of macarons from Sweet Macarons in Gold EP 
  • Fussy cut that out and stamped the solid images with Soft Orchid, and Orchid Crush 
  • Stamped the Sweetest from Scripty Alpha Lower in Noir 
  • Popped the Macaron stand and sentiments up with foam tape
  • Embellished with Disco Spring Mix and Cotton Candy Puff Mix

For my next card: Oh this was FUN to COLOR:))
New Stamps used: Brushed LoveDahlia Close Up, and The New Pretty
Embellished with Mixed Dew Drops
  • I first stamped the Brushed Love in Noir onto white CS
  • On Distress Watercolor paper I stamped the Dahlia Close Up in in three shades of blue ink
  • Then water colored with Distress markers:Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Peacock Feathers, Blueprint Sketch, and Chipped Sapphire
  • Trimmed teh panel down to a wonky angle and embossed with silver EP on the very edges.
  • Popped that up with foam tape and stuck it to the LOVE stamped panel
  • Stamped  and embossed the sentiment from The New Pretty onto velum, 
  • Fussy cut around it and wrapped one end around the edge of the panel to hold it into place...added a  few dots of glue behind each letter to adhere to the front.
  • Finished with a couple of Clear Mixed Dew Drops
