Happy Friday! In today’s blog post I am sharing two cards and one video using the Love and a Dog, Tribal Chic Borders and Fresh Cut Roses stamp sets from The Ton. I am joining The Ton today for their Anniversary Release blog hop filled with lots of inspiration, giveaways and talented designers.
For my first card, I got creative with some masking and layered stamping using the Love and a Dog stamp set along with the Fresh Cut Roses set. I added a bold touch by stamping a border using the brand new Tribal Chic Borders set.
That little pup makes me so happy. It probably makes me that happy because it reminds me of my own dog, Jinny. She’s white, fluffy and cute (and she’s sitting on my lap while I’m typing this!). First I went ahead and masked off the image on some white card stock since I wanted a big and bold flower background behind that puppy. While that mask was on, I stamped 6 flowers using the gorgeous inks from The Ton. I used two of the bundles (Peony + Orchid) but you can also get those colors individually. For the soft purple roses, I created my own combination using the Ballet Slippers, Soft Orchid and Orchid Crush inks.
After stamping those roses, I peeled off the mask and colored the dog. Since I used the Caviar ink from The Ton, I was able to use Copic markers without any problems! Next, I stamped and colored a flower headband since that matched the backdrop perfectly. For some extra sparkle and shine, I added both Stardust Stickles and Glossy Accents. These two together are a match made in heaven. I also stamped a sentiment from the Fresh Cut Roses stamp set and some pretty hearts from the Love and a Dog set. Finally, I wanted to add a bold touch so I stamped a border from the Tribal Chic Borders set and I embellished the card with some of my beloved sequins.
For my second card, I used the same products and technique. However, I switched up the design a bit by using different colors of ink. I started out by stamping the dog on some masking paper and by cutting a curved line under the dog. After cutting that out, I adhered the mask on top of the stamped dog. Next, I stamped the flowers from the new Fresh Cut Roses set using various ink pads. Instead of using the pink and purples I used for the first card, I added a bit of yellow from the Citrine bundle and a bit or coral using the Coral bundle.
After stamping all of the flowers, I peeled off the mask and adhered a cute little pup I colored with Copic markers. For the rest of the card, I did the same like I did for the first card! Easy! 🙂
As I mentioned in my video and in the beginning of my blog post, these cards and video are part of the Anniversary Release blog hop hosted by The Ton. In total, there are 15 blog posts waiting for you packed with inspiration using some of the brand new products. I am in love with the goodies I got to use and I can’t wait to see what the other designers have come up with.
