The Ton's Summer 2016 Release Blog Hop!



Hello!  I'm thrilled to be a part of The Ton's Summer 2016 Release Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the awesome Vera Yates' blog!  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is on The Ton's blog!

There are giveaways to celebrate the hop: Four $25 gift certificates will be given away to random commenters.  You must comment on each hop participant blog to qualify for the giveaway. The comment period will close on Saturday, June 18 at 11:59pm. Winners will be announced thereafter.

My first card features the fabulous Darling Flamingos.


My card was inspired by my Kate Spade cosmetic bag.  I used the following Hero Arts pinks for the flamingo:

Soft Pink  ●  Bubble Gum  ●  Ultra Pink

Similar to the Kate Spade tag, I heat embossed the sentiment in gold onto a strip of black cardstock.

Next is the new, Stand Tall:


I adore the new pineapple set, love the sentiment!  I stamped the single pineapple in Soft Pink and the sentiment with Versafine black.  I used the previously released, Pineapple Print Cling Background on the white panel and it has also been clear heat embossed on the pink panel.  For a bit of interest, I swiped the white panel on my Versamark pad and dusted gold embossing powder on it.

My final card uses the gorgeous Always Cherry Blossoms set.  Grinning since I used purple...the color is growing on me.  I decided to step away from the traditional pale pink or white cherry blossoms and purple always packs a punch.  



Next up is the super Emily Midgett!

Hi Amy ~ Your cards are beautiful and creative....love the gold "swipe" element on your pineapple card. I had to take a second look to see the clear embossed pineapples on the pink cardstock....that adds a nice touch. But....out of your box and into the purple...I love it! The gold strip adds a nice touch and I love how you brought in the multi-colored striped paper along the side. Nice touch. Thanks for sharing!

Sue D said...

Great cards. I like the sentiments.

Shona Chambers said...

These are all fantastic Amy!! Love the flamingo, the layering of the stamps makes for a gorgeous final image. And that pineapple background in black on white CS is genius. And why not purple blossoms, they look beautiful and I'm sure there are some in the world somewhere.....

These are beautiful, Amy! You are a great ambassador for any brand you can lay your hands on. Since I love the unexpected, the intentional imperfection, I love the pineapple card with the gold down left corner.
