The Ton Spring 2016 Release: Day 3 (+ Giveaway!)

Good morning! Thanks for joining me for The Ton Spring 2016 Release! For Day 3 Release festivities, we are introducing the following new products: Bokeh Burst Round, Bokeh Burst Heart, Bokeh Burst Star, Brushed Hello, Brushed Happy, Brushed Thanks, and Floral Border Cling.


For today’s cards, I am focusing on Brushed Hello. 🙂 The brushed sets are perfect for making quick cards or card sets. I used my MISTI to stamp ‘hello’ on watercolor cardstock twice and heat embossed with clear embossing for one and white embossing powder for the second. White embossing powder definitely pops out more since I was going to use lighter colors around it.

I used one color but I created an ombre look and some splatters. Once it was dry, I split the panel so I could have some black glitter tape peeking from behind 🙂

The sentiment ‘friend’ was stamped with VersaMark on black cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

For the second one, I used black and hot pink from my Mission Gold Watercolors. I added some splatters and set it aside to dry. I trimmed down the base to 4″ x 5.25″ so I could add a strip of glitter and pink near the bottom. The sentiment ‘just saying’ was stamped with VersaMark on black cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I set it over the ‘hello’ with foam tape.
