The Ton's First Anniversary Blog Hop

Hello friends! Are you ready to see some new and awesome products?
I am honored to be part of The Ton Stamps Blog Hop today. This new stamp company is turning one! I must say that knew little about The Ton just a year ago. But the designs and the creator of this company have wowed me time and time again. I am delighted to share some new projects with you for their new release. I am not affiliated with The Ton. All products I used here today were offered to me because of the blog hop. Now... let's get to business!

For my first card, I am using Morning Glory Garden Cling Background.
DSC_0686
I am quite impressed with The Ton Inks. They offer many shades of colors and quality is superb.

 I love the large size of this cling stamp because it is so much easier to trim off the imperfection and it offers you more options to use certain section for the focal point. I love the sentiment from from "Timeless Icon"

All that glitter and shine is from Perfect Pearl.

 I inked up the entire image with various colors and then clear-embossed the image. After that, it was all about Emboss Resist. Even though it looks like it has layers, but it really is flat. I did, however, use a piece of large foam for the extra dimension for the entire image.

If you love color layering, you are gonna love this stamp set "Fresh Cut Roses".
 As for the yellow stripes, I used Stripe Addict Cling Background .
love you-002
 The color layering was made easy since The Ton has at least 3 shades of each and every color. I want to point out the special ink in this--Rose Gold. See the shiny subtle roses ( at top and right)? Yeah, they were stamped in Rose Gold. This ink gives a pinkish gold...it is sooooo pretty!! 
 love you (close-up)-001
My 3rd card is a wedding card. The bride in this stamp set is gorgeous! I love that there are two additional smaller stamps for the dress!
Best Wishes
I stamped the image in Versafine Onyx Black and then added the Platinum-embossed dress on vellum over. I did stamped Rose Gold for the dress over the white card stock. I did some white-embossing to simulate the lace details. I stamped the Tribal Chic Borders for the additional colors and interest.
2016-01

Last but not the least, it is this fun card! I love the fun and cheeky sentiment from "Like a Boss". Again, the Stripey Addict Background proves to be versatile and awesome.
Craft like a Boss
I can pretty much send this to ANY of my crafting friends or frame it in my craft room :)
Well, what do you think? I hope this gives you some ideas about this amazing release. Effie (the owner of The Ton is so very talented and she truly is an innovative stamp designer

All my cards today were created with 100% The Ton Stamps and Inks.
