WELCOME! Welcome to the Ton Spring Release Blog hop! The Ton has just released 20 stamp sets that are WOW! Think florals, layering stamps, label stamps, sentiments and DONUTS, NOM NOM NOM. Head on over to the shop HERE to check it out! I made a bunch of cards and videos using this release and today I will be sharing two of them. More to come throughout the week! I also have videos to go along with each project! I hope you enjoy them! Now remember, this is a blog hop and with the blog hop comes prizes!!!!!! More on that at the end of this post!
For my first project, I thought I would do some soft watercoloring with this GORGEOUS stamp set called The Happies of Peonies. I love that cluster of peonies and leaves! Perfect for a lazy stamper like myself, lol!
I heat set them with my favorite white embossing powder and then watercolored them with the Gansai watercolors. I took advantage of the pearlescent white that comes in the set! Man does that leave a beautiful shine behind! I was thrilled when I found out they sell the individual colors so I can refill the ones I use most often. I added a strip of glitter tape from The Ton to add some sparkly color! I love their glitter tape comes with the adhesive already on it! SCORE! And I finished it off with some glass sequins.

My second card features the Floral Border Cling Background stamp set and the Hello Hummingbird set. The Floral Border stamp is gorgeous and again, I love it because its all one stamp!!! The Hummingbirde is a layering set and it is unlike anything I have ever seen before. I colored floral border image using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers after I heat embossed it with my favorite gold embossing powder (Brutus Monroe embossing powders rock my world) and used Julie’s Bristol paper. This Bristol paper and the Zig brush markers have the perfect marriage, lol!!!!!
If you look closely, I applied a wash of the Spectrum Noir Glitter pen over the bird! That baby really adds a TON of sparkle!
