The Ton's 2017 Anniversary Release Blog Hop!

Brushed Hugs

Welcome to The Ton's 2017 Anniversary Release Blog Hop!  
I am so excited to hop along with The Ton's Design Team and special guests for this celebration!  If you haven't already, you need to get busy looking......

Brushed Hugs is a large bold script sentiment with tons of suppporting sentiments in the set.  I decided to white heat emboss the "Hugs" on vellum and hand trim out.  I love how elegant this script is!  I layered it over some neutral polka dot paper and added, with foam adhesive, one of the supporting sentiments white heat embossed onto black cardstock.  To embellish, I added some clear sequins.

Fresh Cut Poppies2

My next card uses my favorite set of this release.......Fresh Cut Poppies.  If you love multi-step stamping and florals............this set is for you!  For all three of my poppies, I started with my lightest color of ink and my Misti, working my way to the darkest layer.  I did the same process with the leaves and stems.  Did I mention how EASY it is to line up the layers to stamp?  They ARE so easy and makes stamping a card like this a breeze!  I added my sentiment (pieced from Brushed Hugs) by white heat embossing it onto a thick strip of black cardstock and adhering with foam adhesive.  More clear sequins in several sizes were added as finishing touches.
