Hi there! I'm excited to join The Ton Stamps for their Spring Release Blog Hop!
The Ton has 14 new stamps, coordinating dies and 5 stand alone 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.
My first project features the Large Florals: Heritage Rose. This is a beautiful large layering rose with leaves. The layers line up so easily. I've used the Peony Pinks Couture Color Inks for the three layers of my rose and the Pewter Couture Color Inks for my leaves. I wanted to have the rose be the center of attention so I used gray for the leaves. I love how it turned out. For the background, I've stenciled some polka dots using Crystal Pewter Dye Ink and stamped a sentiment from Peony Notes B (previously released).
This next project has a bit of nostalgia for me. Growing up, we always had a fish tank and bettas. I remember watching them when I was younger.....how their tails flowed in the water with their rich colors. Beautiful Bettas is a gorgeous layering set with three bettas, greenery, and some sentiments.
I started by stamping my greenery with the Garden Couture Color Inks. Using the lightest ink (Soft Garden), dabbing ink off, and stamping. I then added some shading by selectively inking with the Bright Fern Ink. For my blue betta, I used the Blue Couture Color Inks and for my orange betta, I used the Coral Couture Color Inks. I layered my trimmed panel onto a coordinating panel of blue cardstock and added a thin sentiment with foam adhesive.
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.
