The Ton’s 2017 Anniversary Release Blog Hop!




The Ton has 26 new stamps for their 2017 Anniversary Release which include three 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!  

You should have arrived here from The Ton blog!

I have a total of 8 cards to share with you today!  I was super inspired by The Ton's new release and couldn't stop creating!

First up is The New Pretty:



I LOVE this sentiment set.  The empowering sentiments are absolutely awesome!  I stamped them all on white cardstock and used a couple different dies to cut them out.  What better than to team them up with pretty gold glitter bases!

Next up is Brushed Hugs, I added the previously released Cherry Blossoms set too:


I stamped the Cherry Blossoms with Spun Sugar Distress ink and then layered the Hugs sentiment in a grey ink.

I did a freestyle watercoloring on the blooms and finished them off with Wink of Stella.  The photos don't do it justice, the combo is quite pretty.


My final card features the new Macarons set with the Hug in a Mug set, you had to know that there's was going to be a coffee card too!


The Macarons have been watercolored and they have glittery fillings!

Super excited about how the Macaron card turned out!  I added a rim to the coffee cup..  This card is going to a friend of mine.  We're taking a Macaron class this month!  How perfect is that?!

I'm loving this new release and can't wait to hop around and see how the other designers were inspired!
