The Ton’s Spring 2018 Release Blog Hop




Hello and welcome to The Ton's Spring 2018 Release Blog hop! I have two cards to share with you today featuring two of their brand new stamp sets! 

The Ton has 14 new stamps, coordinating dies and 5 standalone dies for their new Spring 2018 Release which includes up to two free gifts with purchases (GWP). For more information on The Ton’s incentive gifts, head over to The Ton’s blog. New release products can be purchased now and all new release orders will begin to ship on Monday, April 9.



My first card uses a really beautiful new stamp set called Beautiful Betas! This se,t you stamp four different layers and then you are just blown away! My husband even made a big deal about how cool this card was. That's a lot folks! :) Anyway, I used some of the beautiful inks from the ton to stamp these. The colors I used on the top fish are Plum Wine, Grand Fuchsia, Orchid Crush, Iris Blooms, and Violet Fringe. 

On the second fish I used: Cali Blue, Azurite, Deep Sapphire, and Grape Crush.

The seaweed was stamped with Lofty Mint, Bright Emerald, and Soft Garden.


After I was done with the stamping, I blended a little of the same inks onto the background and splattered with a tiny bit of white ink. The sentient was heat embossed with white embossing powder on black card stock, cut out, and adhered with foam tape.

***



My next card is using the Large Dahila stamp set. I stamped it with waterproof black ink onto watercolor paper. I then used Peerless watercolors, wet my paper completely, then dropped color and let them blend. After they dried, I splattered with the same colors and then some white ink.



The sentiment is from the Beautiful Betas stamp set. I heat embossed it with white embossing powder onto black card stock, cut it out, and adhered it with foam tape. 

Stamps featured on my cards:

Beautiful Betas
Large Dahila
