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.

Here is the full list for the Mini Hop Day 4
Enjoy the hop and have a nice day!

I agree with you Isha that the Cosmos are a "happy" looking flower. They are so bright & striking. I think the process you did to make the second card is brilliant! It has a softness that really appeals to me.

Isha, your first card is DEFINITELY SMILING! HOW GORGEOUS! I LOVE this image! Your close-up of them is WONDERFUL!!! LOVE the way you water colored them! AND your second card is LOVELY AS WELL! SO DELICATE on the vellum! I would have NEVER THOUGHT you used Colored Pencils! You faded them out PERFECTLY on the tips of the petals! A SUPER JOB on BOTH of your cards! ;)
