Just Saying Hello....

Hello everyone!! I am so happy and excited to be guest designing for The Ton Stamps. Did you check their 2017 Anniversary release yet? It's a great mix of various style of products. 

Here is a peek of my card, which you can see on The Ton Blog HERE. I used the new "Thoughtful Poppies" stamp set for this card.

Reverse Confetti Fetti-Friend December

Hello everyone!! Sorry, I have been not so frequent in posting. December was busy and I was going through some hormonal changes as well....lol never realized lack of sleep and hormones play around after 40...lol
Jen and Amy were kind enough to give me time off and now slowly, I am getting back to my routine. I made these 2 cards using the December release products. Love the various style I can achieve using these awesome products.

For my first card, I played with the "Figure of Speech" stamp set. First I sponged the background using light pink ink, then stamped and embossed the image using clear powder. I then added some gorgeous Pixie Paint powders by Cosmo Cricket. These give such a pretty subtle sheen to the card. I then die-cut one of the bubble using the co-ordinating dies and adhered it back using 3D foam. 

For my 2nd card, I die-cut a heart mask and using the reverse mask, sponged the heart background. Then I used the "FABULOUS" word die to create part of the sentiment. Love the effect and the sentiment from "You're So" stamp set as it just enhanced the word Fabulous :)

Hope you like these awesome stamps and dies as much as I do :) Happy crafting!!

The Ton’s 2017 Anniversary Release Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to "The Ton’s 2017 Anniversary Release Blog Hop". I am super excited to be a part of this special occasion and want to congratulate Effie on her success. Thank you Effie for inviting me. You must have come here from the super sweet Amy Kolling's Blog.

I love their various style of products. For today, I decided to create with "Beautiful Butterflies 1" stamp set as my main focal point. 

For the first card, I simply masked and created a ink sponged stripe. I then stamped the pretty butterflies. The sentiment is from "Thoughtful Poppies​" stamp set. I really like the mix of fonts.

For my 2nd. card, I used the same butterflies but embossed them onto vellum and colored using my copic markers. I then sponged some inks onto the background panel and created a subtle texture using the beautiful "Dahlia Close Up Cling Background". For the sentiment, I used another of the new release stamp set "Brushed Hugs". This is just amazing and has tons of possibilities :)

The Ton has 29 new stamps for their 2017 Anniversary Release which include four 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!
