The Ton’s Fall 2017 Release Blog Hop




Today is The Ton's Fall 2017 Release Blog Hop and I'm so thrilled to be part of the festivities!  You should have arrived here from Eunji Jung's blog.  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning which is The Ton blog so that you don't miss any of the fun!

The Ton has 24 new stamps, coordinating dies and 6 Couture Mixes for their new Fall 2017 Release which includes up to three free gifts with purchases. For more information on The Ton’s incentive gifts, head over to The Ton’s blog. All new release products are available now!  

Three new release stamps will be given away to random commenters from the hop participant blogs. To qualify, you must leave a comment on The Ton Blog Hop post. The comment period will close on Monday, September 11th at 11:59pm. Winners will be announced thereafter on The Ton’s blog.

Let's get started, I have three projects to share with you today!  I'm playing with the following three sets:



Let's start with a card that features the Poinsettia Banner.  


How pretty are those blooms + foliage?!  I stamped the image on watercolor paper and quickly colored them with Zig Clean Color Markers.  You can't tell by the photo but I went around generously with my Wink of Stella.

Next I have a project that uses the Occasion Confetti set with the Holiday Love Poinsettia.


I did some tone-on-tone stamping with the Poinsettia image.  I made sure that the ink was completely dry before hitting it with my embossing buddy and then some copper embossing powder with the Occasion Confetti set.  

My final card uses the Holiday Love Poinsettia set:


My cleanest card design for today and I think it's my favorite of the trio!  I did the tone-on-tone stamping and just finished up with the sentiment heat embossed in white.  Super easy smeasy but I love the look.

(edited to add:  I used coordinating dye ink with the Holiday Love Poinsettia stamp set, not versamark)

That's it for me today...I can't wait to hop around and see how everyone else was inspired.  Next up is Laura Jane Head!  Here's the complete listing in case you get lost along the way!
