The Ton's Spring Release 2017: Day 4

Welcome back to Day 4 of The Ton's Spring 2017 Release
For The Ton's Spring 2017, Effie has released 18 new stamp designs, Coordinating Dies and 14 new couture mixes!  ALL NEW RELEASE ITEMS ARE AVAILABLE IN THE SHOP.

I have Five new Stamp sets to share with you today!
The first one is, Pragmatic Wreaths and I think, my Favorite stamp set in the whole release. The idea of half a circle is a brilliant idea! One could make a garland, hearts, or circles with this image..and then add the tiny floral images to adorn the swags and BOOOOM! Loveliness Happens:)) 
Here's my card:
To make the wreath I stamped the lined arch image with Rose Gold Pigment ink several times to create a circle. Then I stamped the 'viney' image in Soft Garden and layered the 'bloom/leaves' mage in Soft Orchid. The tiny 'berries' cluster image in Soft Amethyst, and the big Flowers with Rose Quartz. The three bloom clusters are inked with Rose Gold Pigment ink.  I then took the Ziggys and added details to each element of the wreath...tiny lines or dots is all it takes to add dimension:))
Then I fussy cut the whole thing out and mounted it onto a cardfront Stamped with Haute Stripes inked with Light Onyx...I added a small line of color with a marker for added interest. The Gift Incentive Guava Sparkle Mix was the perfect finishing touch. The sentiment is inked with Light Onyx too.

The next card features the lovely Sunflower Garden background revealed yesterday and the new Modern Labels stamp set.
 Modern Labels

Sunflower Garden

Utilizing the ink, stamp and re-ink abilities of the MISI for the Sunflower Garden Background, I inked the entire stamp with Orchid Crush. Then selectively colored, with watercolor markers, the solid images to add depth and dimension. The Rectangle image from Modern Labels is Heat embossed with Rose Gold EP. And the sentiment inked with Noir. Both, label and background panel, are trimmed with various sizes from the Double Stitched Rectangle dies LG. Embellished with Spring Fawn Mix.

For the next card, I created a Background by repeat stamping an image from the new Sentiment Jewelry stamp set.

I inked the Jewelry images with Cobalt Breeze, Cali Blue and Bright Emerald Couture Inks. Created a shaker frame with the two largest dies from Double Stitched Rectangle die LG. Inked the frame in Cali Blue. The shaker elements are Summer Skies Mix. After the shaker was all together I added HAPPY BIRTHDAY dies, which were cut from  Adhesive Foil Paper - Bright Blue.
I colored the Gift Incentive Peony Cluster Mini stamp with ziggys. Restamped the outlines of the blooms with Deep Sapphire. Fussy cut, because the die had not arrived yet, the cluster to adorn the shaker:))

For the last card I played with the Chandelier stamp set and Coordinating Die.

Chandelier Die

I created a background with Peony Crush Cling stamp by inking second generation with Soft Garden and then Beach Blondie...using the MISTI. Then I cut the Coordinating Chandelier Die from the middle of the panel. On a separate piece of CS I heat embossed with GOLD EP, the Chandelier Stamp, then placed the Peony Crush panel over the top and pieced the tiny cuts back into place. I made my own sentiment using Scripty Alphas, Lower and Upper. Embellished with Bell's Dress Couture Mix. Trimmed with  Double Stitched Rectangle dies LG

Oh my goodness, that first card is stunning, LauraJane. I can see why this set is your favorite. It makes a beautiful wreath! I also really like the detail in the stripes in the background. The other three cards are great, too. I like all the florals on the second one and the great sentiment. The chandelier ones are so pretty with their flowy lines and pretty colors. Awesome work! :)
