The Ton’s Summer 2017 Release - Day 3

Well Hello! It's DAY3 of the SUMMER 2017 Release at The Ton. Have you liked what has been revealed so far? In my opinion, this is the BEST release yet..I seem to always say that and then the the next one comes along, I know:)) Effie's designs are simply ROCKING this girl's world!


If you like BIG, BOLD blooms this one's for YOU!

For the sentiment banner: I inked a small piece of white CS with Deep Sapphire by dragging it across the ink pad..dried it with the heat tool.White EP worked very well with the tiny script.
A simple thread nest of  DMC Metallic Thread - Light Silver under the sentiment banner completed the card:) The new PENNED SENTIMENT set has so many choices for a background like this.

The star of my next card is the SUMMER BLOOMS stamp set, a beautiful mix of peonies and anemones, along with a lovely mix of open and solid leaf images. 
This is just a STUNNING arrangement of florals..all in one stamp. Got to LOVE that!

To make this card: 
  • I heat embossed the SUMMER BLOOMS in white EP onto white CS..I should have used some form of watercolor paper, but I didn't think ahead.
  • I cut a mask for the whole beautiful cluster...a coordinating die will be available in the store tomorrow. 
  • Then brushed Oxides: Broken China, Cracked Pistachio and Wilted Violet, over the entire background using the Clarity brushes.
  • Splattered clean water over the top and dabbed the color off with dry paper towel and Removed the mask
  • Smooshed each Oxide onto a craft mat and spritzed with water. Adding Peeled Paint and Faded Jeans with Broken China, Cracked Pistachio and Wilted Violet
  • Quickly gave each bloom and leaf a wash of color by picking up ink from the mat with a finetip waterbrush, letting layers dry before adding more color until I was satisfied with the look.. Allowed the panel to dry
  • Trimmed and fussy cut the edges of the cluster layered it onto light blue CS
  • Silver Glitter Tape added a hint of sparkle as well as the Incentive Couture mix SUMMER SOIREE 
  • I found a thin strip of frame left over from a Double stitched rectangle die and colored it with the Wilted Violet Oxide ink. Glued it into place
  • Heat embossed the sentiment in White EP onto another piece of CS colored with Wilted Violet Oxide
  • Trimmed the sentiment down and tucked it under a draping leaf and called it done:)

That's all for me today! Hope you have enjoyed seeing my cards. Be sure to stop by all the other DT blogs for more incredible peeks of the new stamps.

Beautifully designed cards, Laura Jane. The 2nd card ... my absolute favorite of this release so far. I just love everything about it. And I can't believe you used white cs rather than w/c paper. It's just stunning and that set just went to the top of my wish list! ;-)
