The Ton’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop – Day 1

by | Jan 5, 2019 | Backgrounds, Birthday, Blog, Giveaway, Happy Thoughts, Heat Embossing, The Ton Stamps, Watercolor

Hiya friends! Today, it is my privilege to be joining The Ton Stamps for their 4th Anniversary Release Blog Hop. The Ton is celebrating 4 years this month and Effie has introduced 9 new designs for this release. There are some free gifts with purchase promotions ongoing. Head over to The Ton Stamps blog for more details or follow along the hop for inspiration. Today is day 1 of 4 amazing hop days!

 

To create this A2 sized project Rose Gold heat emboss the new Happy Place stamp onto Smooth Bristol paper. Color image with with a deep purple, pink and red Arteza watercolor brush marker for the flowers, and a parchment shade for the book. Add a touch of teal and lime for the leaves. Place the color direct from the marker in the areas you would like to appear the darkest and then blend out with clean clear water.

I am absolutely obsessed with my new Masterson Rinse Well brush station. When it’s small pool of fresh water has dirtied just press a button and the old flows out into a reservoir below and fresh water flows in, thus allowing my brush to always have clear water keeping my colors bright and crisp! My last container was so hard to clean. This is a breeze!

Rose Gold emboss Coming Up Peonies in the background and adhere die cut Happy Place image in place with dimensional adhesive. Trim  panel slightly narrower than A2. Stamp Happy Place sentiment in Stazon Black ink onto vellum. Adhere vellum by wrapping to back of panel. Adhere finished panel to black folded card base with white insert to write on, or onto black cardstock and then onto a white folded card base. You choose!

Blog Hop

We are huge book lovers in our house so as soon as I saw this set I knew it had to come live with me! You can always find what I am currently reading in the sidebar on the blog pages of my website if you are ever interested. I am always up for recommends too! I love just the book title and author with no description. Part of the excitement in reading is having no idea what to expect!

GiveawayThere are also giveaways everyday on these mini hops! Win a stamp of choice from The Ton’s new release. To enter, leave a comment on each blog each day. Effie will choose one winner per day (4 winners total) and announce the winners on The Ton’s blog by January 12. The comment period for these giveaways will close on January 11 at 7pm EST. 

Thank you so much for hopping along today. Carry on!

xo, Janette
