Honey Bear

Hello everyone! Eunji here.Today I have 2 autumn cards to share with you that I made using our new Thankful Cornucopia and Honey Bears stamp set.Let’s start~~


For my first card I used our Thankful Cornucopia and Honey Bears stamp set. I started by stamping the cornucopia image on watercolor 4*6 size cardstock. Then I stamped a pumpkin and apple image. Next I watercolored and colored with color pencil. Then I colored with Zig pen around the cornucopia image. Next I stamped the bear image on watercolor paper and drew the bee costume with a 4H pencil. I then colored with watercolor and fussy cut. Next I added the cornucopia image on a card panel with foam tape. I then drew some lines in grey near the bear. I stamped the banner image and the sentiment on cardstock in our Noir Ink then fussy cut. I adhered the banner on top using foam adhesive to pop it up. Lastly I added some sequins using our Waltz White Sequins-Mixed.


For my second card I used our Thankful CornucopiaHoney Bears  and Autumn Foliage stamp set. I started stamping the leaf image  on cardstock with Valentine Red, Dark Roast, Lemon Drop, Amber Citrine, Coral Cavern, Found Topaz, Everglade Moss. I creared a wreath:) Then I stamped the bear image  on watercolor paper and drew the bee costume with a 4H pencil. I colored with watercolor and then fussy cut. Then I adhered it on the center of the card using foam tape.Next I stamped  the pumpkin and grape image on watercolor paper and colored with watercolor and then fussy cut.Then I adhered it onto the bear’s paws with foam tape. For the sentiment, I stamped it on cardstock and then fussy cut. I adhered the sentiment on card panel using foam tape.Lastly I added some sequins from Waltz White Sequins-Mixed.


Thank you stopping by:)I hope you have a creative day. See you soon~~


Die-Cut Stenciling for a Background

Hello! It’s LauraJane. Welcome to a new week:))

I was interested in trying out a technique that Jennifer Mcguire shared, a while ago, for creating a background by using dies to make a stencil.  I’ll share with you the steps in photos using the Holiday Cones Coordinating Dies for the stencil.

Here are the steps to create the background panel:

  • First I repeatedly cut the two smaller branch dies from Holiday Cones Coordinating Dies on CS to makes a stencil.
  • Then Sponged a shade darker than the chosen colored CS..I chose Bright Emerald Dye
  • Next, stamp the coordinating images in an even darker shade…Basil Mojito 
  • For the shadows, I slightly misaligned the stencil and traced the images where the shadow would be with COPIC N1.
  • Trimmed the panel down with the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies
  • Adhered that onto an A2 sized CS in the same color as the original blue

For the embellishment:



Hope you enjoyed my card tutorial today.

Have a GREAT week!



Peace, Love and Joy

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! It’s Jenny here taking over the blog today with a holiday shaker card. This card looks nothing like I initially planned it to be, but I am quite happy with the result! For this card, I used Fresh Cut Poinsettias Outlines, Holiday Cones, Outline Holiday Cones, and Scripty Holiday Grettings stamp set. Poinsettias, pine cones, and sparkles! It screams the Holidays, and I wish it was December already!🙂


Here is the card!


  • I started the card by repeatedly stamping 2 poinsettia images and few other small images from our Fresh Cut Poinsettias Outlines stamp set on the Arches cold press watercolor paper in Versamark. I heat embossed the images with white embossing powder.
  • I colored the panel with Mijello Misssion Gold watercolors. I also splattered white watercolor and spritzed the entire panel with shimmer spray and let it dry completely.
  • I die cut the panel with the largest and the second largest dies from our Double Stitched Rectangle dies, and added acetate and foam tape on the outer piece to create the shaker frame.
  • On a A2 size black card base, I adhered our Medium Silver Glitter tape on all 4 edges and adhered the inside piece of the watercolored panel in the middle. I adhered some sequins (Glass Slippers and Wintergreen Frost Couture Mix) on the panel. I also used the same sequins to fill up the shaker and closed up the frame.
  • I stamped the sentiment from our Scripty Holiday Greetings on a black cardstock in Versamark and heat embossed in white. I cut it down to a strip, and added couple of lines and some dots with silver gel pen. I adhered the sentiment strip on the card adding strong adhesive only on the 2 side ends.
  • I layer stamped pine cones and pine bushes from our Holiday Cones.I used Found Toapz, Aspen Cocoa, and Dark Roast ink for the acorns and Soft GardenBright Fern, Deep Emerald, and Aspen Cocoa ink for the pine branches. I die cut all the images using the Holiday Cones Coordinating Dies and adhered them behind the sentiment strip.





That’s all for today! I hope you enjoyed the card and thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!🙂



October Guest Designer: Justine Hovey


Hi everyone,

It’s Justine and I’m back for my final card as a Guest Designer for The Ton Stamps. Today, I was inspired by vibrant colours and tie-dye. I think the dreariness of Autumn is getting to me and I’m clinging onto summer as much as I can.

I used several colours of ink to create this card. The main challenge with ink blending is finding colours that won’t turn brown when they mix together. You can choose rainbow colours when creating cards like this, or stick to similar colours like reds and pinks or greens and blues. The possibilities are truly endless.


I hoped you enjoyed my video tutorials and my posts here at The Ton. If you happened to have missed them, you can find my Christmas Card post as well as my How to use a Background Stamp for FIVE different cards post. I’ll also be using a lot more stamps from The Ton in the future on my blog! They are just so fabulous and pretty! A big thanks to Effie for having me on here!

Make the most of your coloring…

Good morning, friends! Emily here with you today to give you a few ideas on how to make the most of the gorgeous coloring that takes so much of our valuable time. The Ton has so many gorgeous background stamps, and this is one of my favorite ways to maximize the time I spend meticulously coloring those stunning and detailed backgrounds. (I’m coming to realize that I have a little bit of a control issue when it comes to my watercoloring…. haha!!) I have an example of a card that would be easy to mass produce and one that is a little more involved, so let’s get started!


To start, I began by heat embossing the Poinsettia Garden background on a 5.5×5.5 inch piece of Bristol watercolor paper using silver detail embossing powder. I then used Distress Inks that I tapped onto a clear block to watercolor the images.


This first card is the simpler card, one that could be easily mass-produced. I started by trimming a 2″ strip of the watercolored Poinsettia Garden background, then adhered it off-center on the card base. I then cut two strips of dark green card stock and added them over the top of the watercolored panel using dimensional adhesive. I die cut the “Merry Christmas” using our newly released Holiday Word Dies. (Isn’t that font just so pretty and retro?!) I used some of the Silver Glitter Adhesive paper that I first adhered to some scrap card stock, then die cut. (I did this for added stability over the popped-up opening. Plus the otherwise-useful adhesive would have attracted cat hair, and nobody wants a Christmas card covered in cat hair…) A few silver sequins added the final finishing touch. This card would be really easily mass-produced if you decreased the width of the watercolored strip! You could probably get at least 3-4 cards from one 6×6 watercolored panel!


This next card is a little more involved, but I am really loving it. The watercolored panel is a little wider, there’s a little more sparkle, and a little more shine. I cut a 3 inch strip of the Poinsettia Garden  watercolored panel and adhered it to the center of my card base. I then cut two 1×5.5″ panels for the sides, adding red foil strips to the sides. I adhered those to the edges of the card base, overlapping them with the watercolored panel.


The next step was to add the greeting. I used the same Holiday Word dies, this time focusing on the “Merry and Bright” portion. I die cut the words twice from regular card stock, then added the silver adhesive glitter paper again to some scrap card stock, then die cut that with the word dies again. I adhered all of them together, creating some nice, thick, dimensional die cuts. The final step was to add some more silver sequins. I really love the look of this one! This one could be mass produced fairly quickly, too, if you just used regular single die cuts. You could even forgo the watercoloring and simply heat emboss the background… it’s certainly detailed enough that you don’t have to spend the extra time watercoloring it!

Well, that’s all for me today, and I hope you enjoyed these projects! I’m all about making the most of my time in the craft room, so I hope my tips for easy holiday cards were useful for you. Have a fantastic weekend, friends!

Thankful Cornucopia 2 ways

Hello, everyone! It’s Jenny here taking over the blog today! I would like to share 2 Thanksgiving cards I created with our new Thankful Cornucopia stamp set and coordinating dies. I used  both larger centerpiece image as well as the little coordinating images from the set to create 2 different looks. Hope you would enjoy these cards as much as I did while creating them!🙂


Here is the first card!


  • I started the card by stamping the cornucopia image on the Bristol paper in our Noir Ink. I colored the image with Mijello Mission Gold watercolors and let it dry completely. I also used Polychromos color pencils to create deeper definition. I die cut the image with the coordinating die and put it aside.
  • I used a stripe stencil and Coralline Hybrid ink to create orange striped background. I adhered strips from our orange Adhesive Foil Paper on the sides of a A2 size white card base and adhered the orange stipe background panel on top.
  • I die cut a black circle using the second largest die from our Double Stitched Circle Dies. I also die cut a circle out of a burlap cardstock using the third largest die from the set. I adhered both circle die cuts on the card and adhered the cornucopia on top using foam adhesive to pop it up.
  • I stamped the banner image and the sentiment on the burlap cardstock in ourNoir Ink and die cut it using thecoordinating die. I also die cut 2 more banners (one out oforange Adhesive Foil Paper and the other out of black cardstock), layered them and and adhered it on the card using foam adhesive.
  • I wrapped the bottom of the card with jute twine and adhered some fall foliage on top. I finished the card by adding some Matte Gold and Creamy Toffee sequins.






Here is the second card!

I used the 2 small pumpkin images, but using mixture of other small images from the set such as corn, apple, etc. would be super fun too!🙂


  • I started the card by randomly and repeatedly stamping 2 pumpkin images from our new Thankful Cornucopia stamp set inNoir Ink on the Canson XL watercolor paper. I loosely colored the pumpkins with Mijello Mission Gold watercolors. I also splattered watercolors on the panel. When it was completely dry, I trimmed the sides and adhered it on a A2 size kraft cardbase.
  • I stamped the sentiment from our Scripty Holiday Greetings stamp set and the pumpkin images on the kraft cardstock inNoir Ink. I colored the pumpkins with the Polychromos color pencils, added some shimmer with Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen and die cut using second smallest die from our Double Stitched Rectangle dies. I adhered it on the card using foam tape to pop it up.
  • I finished the card by adding some Key Lime sequins and tying twine on top of the card.






Hope you enjoyed today’s cards! Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!



Treat Yourself

Hello everyone! It’s TaeEun here today with two cards saying “Treat Yo Self”.

I used two chic and classy stamp sets from our new Release: City Girls (Retail Therapy) and Born Classy and their coordinating dies. I know many of you fell in love with this unique sets like me :)!


On the first card I’ve created a night city scene with three ladies enjoying their free time shopping and sightseeing. I started off by making the night sky with city light. I blended Lemon Drop, Coralline hybrid, Parisian Blue, Iris Blooms and Noir Couture colors, after I masked one third of the A2 watercolor panel. Some splatters using silver watercolor were added and some dots using gel pens. I then stamped the skyline of the city from the Vogue Skies stamp set in Noir dye ink and then once more in embossing ink to clear heat emboss it. For the walkway I stamped the bottom part of the Scenes: Dept. Store cling background stamp in Crystal Pewter. I watercolored the walkway in silver to give it some shimmer and added thin silver glitter tape underneath the buildings. I mounted the front panel on the card base using some foam adhesive.


The ladies, the little dog and the bags from the City Girls (Retail Therapy) stamp set were stamped using our copic-friendly Caviar hybrid ink, colored with Copic markers and cut using Coordinating dies. I glued two ladies and the little dog flat on the card. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, which I silver heat embossed on some purple cardstock and cut into a banner. The sentiment was foam mounted on the card with a lady.


To make my second card I started out by stamping the flowers and greenery from Mini Wild Florals stamp set along the diagonal of the front panel. I used Soft Garnet, Orchid Crush and Rose Quartz for the flowers, Soft Garden, Bright Ememrald and Crystal Pewter for the greenery. I then added tiny flowers from Floral World stamp set in Iris Blooms as filler. I die cut the lady from the Born Classy stamp set using coordinating die out of the front panel and then stamped the lady in Orchid Crush on the die cut. I colored her skin and hair using Copic markers. To assemble the card I adhered thin strip of purple cardstock on both sides of my card base, the front panel flat on it and then foam mounted the lady in place. After I added shimmer on her hair and dress using Wink of Stella,I glued the silver heat embossed vellum part on the dress. The sentiments are from City Girls (Retail Therapy). To finish off I scattered some sequins from the Glass Slippers sequins mix.


I have one more picture to share with you. This is the second card before I added the vellum part. I was having a hard time deciding with or without…, till my  4 year old girl insisted on the version with the vellum layer🙂. I can’t say which one is more appealing to me. I actually like both of them. What do you think?


Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed my cards today!

Have a beautiful day!


Red Rose Card

Hello friends^^Eunji here.Today I am sharing two red rose cards using our new Fresh Cut Garden Roses (Coord. Outlines) stamp set. For my first card, I’m using black and red colors.Let’s start~


For my first card, I used our Fresh Cut Garden Roses (Coord. Outlines) stamp set. It is succcch an awesome stamp set. I started by stamping a rose and leaf image on a 4*6 size watercolor cardstock with light color ink. Then I colored with watercolor using black and red, ultra marine color. Then I drew the leaf lines with watercolor. Next I splashed some white pigment  ink and black watercolor on the card panel. Next I stamped the leaves around the roses with Smoky Quartz  ink. Next I stamped the sentiment on another cardstock with Noir ink then fussy cut it. I added it to the card panel with foam tape.


For my second card, I used our Fresh Cut Garden Roses (Coord. Outlines) stamp set and Haute Books stamp set. First I stamped a book image from our Haute Books with Noir ink on a 4*6 size watercolor cardstcok. Then I stamped the rose image on a card panel. This time I used a masking technique. Next I colored with watercolor and splashed some white pigment  ink and black watercolor onto the card panel. Next I stamped the leaves around the rose image around with Smoky Quartz  ink. Lastly I added the sentiment with foam tape.


That’s all for today’s card.Thank you for stopping by and have a nice day~~See you soon:)


From Our Family To Yours

Good morning, lovely peeps. Vera here today to start off the week here.

So, I’ve been playing quit a bit with Fresh Cut Poinsettias and usually I go with the non-traditional color, but today I chose a color that much closer to the traditional poinsettia color. It’s not quite red, but more in pinky tone.🙂


I am mixing it with Outlines Holiday Cones with sentiment from Mistletoe Kisses set.

I first stamped the poinsettia and then masked it before stamping the leaves and the pine cones, which I color with Copic. For the poinsettia I used Rose Quartz, Hollywood Stars and Cosmopolitan Pink. I cut an opening for the candle, by cutting around the top part of the poinsettia. Then I stamped the candle, fussy cut it and insert it on the slit opening.

Come to think of it, I could just leave the masking on the poinsettia and stamped the candle, but I like adding depth and texture to my card. Also, since I love shimmer, I brushed the poinsettia with shimmer marker. Here’s a closer look to show the pretty shimmer.

Oh, the pretty strip of glitter is the pink glitter tape from the Sampler Pack. I sure do love this glitter tape, since it allowed me to add glitter without the mess.

That’s all from me today peeps. May your week starts off wonderfully. Cheers….

October Guest Designer: Justine Hovey

Hi Crafters,

It’s Justine again, guest designing today for The Ton. I’m super excited to be back with my first Christmas cards of the season (I’m seriously not over Fall leaves and all those great stamps yet though)! Today I will be using three sets from The Ton to create three clean and simple Christmas cards: Holiday Cones, Scripty Holiday Greetings, and Fresh Cut Poinsettias.



This amazing layering stamp Fresh Cut Poinsettias, provides this gorgeous candle. There is so much you can do with it – stamp it in your favourite colours or stamp it in purple and pink for Advent. I stamped some sprigs from the Holiday Cones over top of the candle to make it look like a wreath and topped it off with a sentiment from the Scripty Holiday Greetings set and some embellishments.


Also from Fresh Cut Poinsettias, I used the poinsettia stamp and stamped it in three different colours – the last being a red-brown colour to really make it pop. I mounted my panel onto some silver matte adhesive back paper I topped it off with a sentiment from the Scripty Holiday Greetings set and some embellishments.


This last card is quite similar to the previous card, except I decided to do an elegant white on white look for it and top it off with gold embellishments. See how a lack of paper and a classic gold colour makes it stand out while the silver one looks more blingy?

I hope you enjoyed these three Christmas cards and I will be back for my last post next Saturday.
