The Ton Stamps New Release

Hello hello!
s
Today is an exciting day for my friend Effie (owner/designer of The Ton Stamps) to reveal the new release with special guests. I am honored to be part of the blog hop! Let's get right to it, shall we?

First I want to say "hello" with the most amazing stamp set that I have come across. This hummingbird stamp has 7 parts...yeah, 7 stamps to complete the entire birdie. If you love to "build a bird", this is the ultimate one to have!

hello

What could be more Spring than...tulips!? These tulip images are by far the most detailed and realistic that I have ever seen. It looks like I did something special with the tulip images....but really, I just stamp, stamp stamp...and that's it!
just saying
The tulips are so easy to line up and there was no guess work involved. I did some masking and used 2-3 shades of The Ton Inks in each tulip.
fabulous (close-up)

My next card combines Embossing and Distress Inks on kraft card stock (from Michael's). The Emboss Resist technique works magic every. single. time.
sending happy thoughts
I used Antique Gold Ultrafine Embossing Powder (from Simon Says Stamp). This EP is awesome with the ornate details of the cling stamp. With some dotted gold Stickles, the card is extra elegant and glittery....
sening happy thoughts

I can go on and on about the new floral stamps...they are all FABULOUS!
 To change up the theme a bit, my final card for the hop has a fun and trendy vibe.
This card is 100 % stamped and water-colored.
you're a STAR
 I stamped the Bokeh Burst Star in various ink and then I clear-embossed the entire image with the help of MISTI. I applied the brush strokes in one direction to simulate the movement. I hope you like it as much as I do. It truly is fun to create with the Bokeh Burst Star.

Here's a review of my 4 cards for this blog hop. Do you have a favorite?
