The Ton’s Summer 2017 Release Blog Hop

Hi everybody! I’m thrilled to be back with another video and two cards in honor of The Ton’s Summer 2017 Release Blog Hop. The Ton has 24 new stamps for their new Summer 2017 Release which includes up to four 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 decided to showcase the Beer stamp set and the Sunnies stamp set. First, I’ll be showing you the Father’s Day card I made with the Beer stamp set. I’m pretty sure my dad will love this set since he’s a Belgian beer lover.

This card is super clean and simple, but I did add some pops of sparkle with sparkly embossing powder and a variety of The Ton’s sequins (Spotlight Couture Mix and Glass Slippers). Even though this is a Father’s Day card, I couldn’t resist! My dad knows that I’m sequin and glitter obsessed so I’m sure he won’t mind! 😉

Stamping the beer was a lot of fun! I like to use my MISTI tool whenever I’m using a layering stamp set since it makes it just so much easier. Especially if you’re going to be mass producing designs! For the body of the beer I used The Ton’s Citrine Ink Collection. For the handle I used Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz. Finally, I used Noir for the sentiment.

For my second card, I wanted to feature the adorable new Sunnies stamp set. I created a collage style card by mixing different stamp sets. I used the Darling Flamingos, Macarons and Fresh Cut Peonies sets from The Ton. I just love these different images together! It looks pretty cute! I used some clear and sparkly embossing powder for a glossy finish on the sunglasses. I finished off the design with a variety of sparkly sequins. By the way, if you’re looking for a detailled supply list, just scroll all the way down.

  53. I was wondering I got the beer set and I have a lot of Micro Mini beeds and was thinking how do you think those would look rather than the larger sequens? Would like everyone’s opinion!! Have a lot of them and not to many sequins. maybe they will not stand out so much and blend in better in the beer foam. Thank you!!

      Hi Dawn. Just give it a go! 🙂 It’s probably a bit harder to adhere them onto your stamped image, though. Try it out on a piece of scratch paper. Trial and error is usually the best way! Have a great day.
