Adding Silver Embossing Powder. + The Ton’s Spring 2018 Release Blog Hop

07:00


Cardmaking can always be stepped up in some way and today I'm going to show you how to do just that with adding silver! I'm celebrating with The Ton's Release with Beautiful Bettas and Dahlia Bouquet. The Ton has 14 new stamps, coordinating dies and 5 standalone dies for their new Spring 2018 Release which includes up to two free gifts with purchases (GWP). For more information on The Ton’s incentive gifts, head over to The Ton’s blog. New release products can be purchased now and all new release orders will begin to ship on Monday, April 9.


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 Friday, April 6 at 5pm. Winners will be announced thereafter on The Ton’s blog.


Layering stamps are a ton of fun and add a lot of detail and realness to a card. I tried embossing the third layer for some extra glam! Don't forget your first two layers must be completely dry before adding the third layer and powder!


This 6x6 bouquet is HUGE! It's a 6x6 stamp and can be used partially on an A2 card or you can use it on a square card.


Blog Hop List:
Justine Hovey - you are here!
Brenda Noelke - go here next!

I coloured this image with Prismacolor Pencils and I used a Google Search of Dahlias to choose my colours. This is a pretty simple technique.

Prismacolor Colours Used:
Process Red
Pomegrenate
Hot Pink
Scarlet Lake
Kelly Green
Apple Green
Dark Green
Canary Yellow
White

  1. I LOVE both of your cards, Justine.....but that Dahlia bouquet is GORGEOUS! I love how your coloring pops on the black cardstock and how you chose to color only a few of the flowers. Such a great idea to make a statement!!!

  12. My favorites of the 2018 Spring Release Hop are the golden fish and diamonds pattern…the line contouring the fish and the pattern of the diamonds make the fish and the diamond move into life

  29. Great cards; I love the Ton stamps so much!!! Using embossing to add a layer to the fish is genius and I also love how you didn't color all of the flowers on the black card. I am excruciatingly horrible at colored pencils but this looks like something I might actually try. TFS

  40. I’m not sure which is my favorite card of the two. I have a tendency to lean towards the flower but I think beta fish are so cool that it wins. I was a fish sitter for a co workers beta for a week. It was so neat at feeding time. I would swear I could hear him crunching his food. Love the cards, thanks for sharing.

  41. The red fish with their silver highlights really pop - and the "Keep Swimming" is such a great sentiment. I hadn't thought of doing white or yellow pencil coloring at the tips of the flower petals. Great idea.
