The Ton's 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 4

Hello and Welcome everyone! Happy New Year, I hope you had a wonderful time with your friends and family.



Today, I'm super excited to be celebrating THE TON'S 4th Anniversary by joining the mini hop Day 4! The Ton is celebrating 4 years this month and Effie has introduced 9 new designs for this release. There are some free gifts with purchase promotions ongoing. Head over to The Ton Stamps' blog for more details.

Here are my cards featuring the new Smiling Cosmos stamp set. This is such a pretty bouquet stamp!!

For my first card, I went for the abstract, loose watercolor look. I am really happy with how it turned out. Sure this gave me a smile on my face, hope it gives you one too :)





Now, for my 2nd. card, I loved the delicate lines of this stamp, so it was perfect to use it on vellum. I created a base blue alcohol ink background on vellum. I then stamped and embossed the image on another piece of vellum, colored it using prismacolor pencils. Fussy cut the image and adhered it onto the background.





GIVEAWAYS:
There are also giveaways everyday on these mini hops! Win a stamp of choice from The Ton's new release. To enter, leave a comment on each blog each day. Effie will choose one winner per day (4 winners total) and announce the winners on The Ton's blog by January 12. The comment period for these giveaways will close on January 11 at 7pm EST.

Enjoy the hop and have a nice day!

For my first card I used the Delicate Primrose stamp set along with the Delicate Primrose dies, Verdant Walk Paper pad, sentiment from the Ruffled Flowers, frame die from the New Day Card Kit and the Snowing stamp.



For my 2nd. card, I used the same Delicate Primrose stamp set but only used the last layer to create this abstract look and watercolors. I also used the Label Love stamp set for the sentiment. I just love love the effect on this one.



or my 3rd. card I went for a mixed media look. I used another new stamp Ruffled Flowers and the Ruffled Flowers dies along with the Celestial Paper Pack and the sentiment is from Wispy Begonia stamp set.



Hope you still are enjoying the release...I couldn't stop creating. For the next card, I used the same Ruffled Flowers stamp set embossed using the Rose Gold embossing powder onto a black cardstock and this time, I colored the images using Caran D'Ache gouache paints.

Altenew November 2018 Stamp/Die/Ink/Sticker Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome everyone! I am super delighted to be a part of the November 2018 Stamp/Die/Ink/Sticker Release Blog Hop over at Altenew.
You are going to love the various products with variety of styles. You can see all the November Release products HERE.


You should have come here from the talented Nicole Picadura's blog. If not start at the Altenew Blog. This is going to be a long post so grab your favourite drink, relax and enjoy :)


https://shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=888816&u=1051809&m=66850&urllink=altenew%2Ecom%2Fcollections%2Fnovember%2D2018%2Drelease&afftrack=

For my first card, I decided to go for a mixed media look using mix of products. I used the Handpicked Bouquet stamp, embossed the floral sprig using Rose Gold embossing powder onto vellum and colored using Alcohol markers.  and Handpicked Bouquet die to create the focal point for my card, I used Wild Ferns stamp set to stamp on the background.  The sentiment is from the Engraved Flowers stamp set. Other than this I also used the Creative Edges: Lace die, Sketched Lines Stencil, pattern paper and enamel dots from the New Day Card Kit. I used  Silver Stone ink and the Rose Gold embossing powder


My next card is using the GORGEOUS Leaf Medallion Die. This die has 2 pieces. For my card, I used both the dies. I started by creating a background using Tim Holtz alcohol inks, I then die-cut the Leaf Medallion Die and applied some Rose Gold and Gina K Hop Pink foil to parts of it. I really love the effect and have been using this technique for many cards :) The sweet sentiment is from another new stamp "Kind Confetti"

 

Next, I decided to show you two cards using the same stamp but different techniques and looks. Since the Tim Holtz alcohol inks were out, I decided to use them with the WONDERFUL layering stamp "Wild Ferns".
I created the background using alcohol ink and applied some Rose Gold foil to it. I then stamped the 1st. layer of the fern image using Alcohol lift ink and transfer this to a neenah white card stock, so I will be getting 2 cards actually. 
Once, I removed ink from the first panel, I was left with a ghost image of the fern onto the alcohol inked panel. I stamped the last layer from the same fern over the first layer to give some definition to the image. I then die-cut the word HUGS from Script Words Die, stacked it 3 times and adhered it to the panel. The words "sending lots of" is from the Heart Flowers Stamp set.



Now the white panel, which I used to transfer the image to while using the Alcohol lift ink is the start of the 2nd. card. I stamped the 3rd. layer of the same fern using Aqualicious ink. I then stamped some other fern images to this card using Altenew Razzelberry ink and some Delicata gold ink. I then die-cut the word "LOVE" from the Script Words Die, stacked and adhered it to the card.



Fun isn't it!!!
Now to my last card...there are so many ideas going on in my head but I decided to go for a no-line watercolor card. This is one of my favourite techniques. I used the Engraved Flowers stamp set along with the Kind Confetti stamp set. See its so easy to mix and match various stamps :)

Heffy Doodle: Sending Positive Vibes

Hello everyone! I am on the Heffy Doodle blog today, sharing a fun card using few of the new release products. I used Whatcha Saying Now , Dino Time clear stamp sets. Whatcha Saying Now, Dino Time and the Metric Stitched Rectangle Dies. Metric??? YES!!! It's the size for UK/EU card sizes. Perfect for A4 cardstock. AWESOME!! We also have the Imperial size, which is the standard US size, check out HERE. Finally, I also used the new Cross Walk stencil to create my background.





To start with I die cut the rectangle white panel using the Metric Rectangle die. I then masked the edges and sponged some distress ink to it. I then took the stencil and sponged some more ink through it. Remove the stencil and spray some shimmeringz spray. Let this panel dry and remove the mask.

I then stamped the images. I colored the dinos using copic markers. I added some shadows to the palm trees using pencil colors and die cut the images using coordinating dies. I then stamped the sentiment and die cut that too.



Now, adhere the panel to the cardbase. Finally adhere all the images to the card.

Hope you enjoyed this fun and playful card. Have a happy crafty day!
