The Ton's Spring 2017 Release Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my stop on the The Ton's Spring release blog hop! I am super excited to be taking part and sharing some of the great new stamps in this release! ;) 

You should have arrived here from Vera's blog.

The Ton has 18 new stamps for their new Spring 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 here. All new release products are available now! 

For my first card I used the new Peony Crush background stamp to create a bright watercolour panel that takes center stage on the card.


I used my Sakura Koi watercolors and painted all of the peonies (except for one reddish one) with the same pink colour. Once the flowers were dry I painted the sky, leaves and stems and then let the entire panel dry.

I trimmed the panel down to 4" x 5 1/4" and adhered it to a grey top-folding card base. I stamped a sentiment from the new Dearest Peony stamp set onto white cardstock with black ink, cut it into a strip and adhered it to the top right of the card. I finished the card with some clear sequins.


For my second card I used the Dearest Peony stamp set and stamped the large peony image onto a piece of watercolour paper with black ink. I love the look of these peony stamps coloured with watercolour! ;)


For this one I used my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours and picked an orangy red colour to paint the large peony. Once the flower petals were completely dry I painted the leaves green and then let the panel air dry.

I stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock with black ink, cut it into a strip and adhered it on the bottom area of the flower. I trimmed the panel down on one side and adhered it to a card base with a black and white striped patterned paper on one side with a silver glitter strip in between.


And for my last card I used the new Wildflower Banner stamp set to create a card with dark rich colours. This card would be perfect for fall (I know a lot of us are heading into spring) and I really wanted to showcase it on my favourite Toned Gray paper with yellows and browns as the main colours.


Once I had it stamped and coloured, I stamped a sentiment into the banner (love that they are already all shaped to fit) and then I trimmed down the panel and added it to a brown card base.
