The Ton’s Spring 2017 Release Blog Hop

Hi! Welcome to The Ton’s Spring 2017 Release Blog Hop filled with new products and inspirational projects made by talented ladies. I’m honored and excited to be joining The Ton for this fun event. The Ton has 18 new stamps for their new Spring 2017 Release which includes up to three free gifts with purchases. For more information on The Ton’s incentive gifts, head over to The Ton’s blog. All new release products are available now! I have a lot of information to cover in this blog post so please scroll all the way down for details on giveaways and the hop order.

In this video, I’m showing you how to make a clean and simple sunflower card with The Ton’s brand new Fresh Cut Sunflowers stamp set.

I stamped the biggest sunflower seven times to create a stunning background. I used my MISTI to line up the stamps but remember you could also use a regular acrylic block!

Layered stamping is easy with The Ton’s ink bundles! I used the Citrine Collection for the petals and the Cocoa Collection for the center of the sunflowers. Effie shared a good tip on The Ton’s blog! It’s easier to stamp the center of the sunflower first. This will make it easier to stamp and line up the petals.

I stamped and embossed a bold sentiment using The Ton’s Friggin Fabulous stamp set. I used the brand new Belle’s Dress Couture Mix to add finishing touches to the card.


Five $25 gift certificates to The Ton’s shop 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 Monday, April 10th at 11:59pm. Winners will be announced thereafter on The Ton’s blog. Good luck! 🙂
