The Ton Spring 2016 Release: Day 4 (+ Giveaway!)

Good morning! Thanks for joining me for The Ton Spring 2016 Release! For Day 4 Release festivities, we are introducing the following new products: Pineapple Print Background, Donut Print Background, Flamingo Print Background, Donut Bar, and Let’s Mingle Labels. All products are now available for order!

I created two watercolor cards for you today 🙂 They were fairly simple to create!

For the first one, I used my MISTI to stamp Donut Print Background with VersaMark ink on watercolor paper and heat set with white embossing powder. I added some light shades of watercolor for all the donuts using my Mission Gold watercolors.

I die-cut the sentiments ‘but first’ four times and stacked them using Glossy Accents. I even added Glossy accents on top of the sentiment for a nice sheen. I stamped the word ‘doughnuts’ from Donut Bar on pink cardstock with VersaMark and heat set with white embossing powder. I trimmed it down and added it below the die-cute words.

For the second card, I used my MISTI again to stamp Pineapple Print Background with VersaMark ink on watercolor paper and heat set with white embossing powder. This time, I colored in green and yellow for pineapple colors and added some dark splatters. I die-cut the word ‘fabulous’ two times and set them aside. I’ve never created a shape card so I used the Double-Stitched Large Circle Dies to try partial die-cutting technique to create a circle card.

The sentiment from Basic Labels was stamped with Bright Fern Couture Color. I trimmed it down with my scissors and attached it on the front panel with foam tape. I added the word ‘fabulous’ below it.
