The Ton Anniversary Blog Hop & Release!

07:00


Hi Crafters,
welcome to The Ton Anniversary 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. All new release products are available now! We have lots of inspiration for you today featuring all the new stamps. I used The New Pretty for the sentiments and Poppy Garden for the backgrounds and I created two cards and two video tutorials to show you how.



Comment on the Blog Hop posts for a chance to win one $75, two $50 and two $25 gift certificates! To qualify, you must also leave a comment on The Ton Blog Hop post. The comment period will close on Monday, January 16th at 11:59pm. Winners will be announced thereafter.



Quick and easy with very few supplies!

I love this coordinating envelope! Such an extra special touch to the card!

Great sentiment!


For this card, I used the Joesph's Coat technique which I demonstrate in the video below. Pretty much you stamp over a coloured background and clear heat emboss it, then cover it in black ink.
