If you arrived here from the talented Keeway blog then you are on the right track.  If you arrived here on your own, you will want to start at the beginning, The Ton blog, as to not miss any of the amazing projects!

Lets jump in:

For my first card: I used the The Ton Graceful Rose stamp set and I have to tell you this stamp is so pretty!!  The rose is so life like!!  When I first saw that stamp set and was deciding what I wanted to do, it came to me to leave the rose as is and color my background.  That’s what I did.

Beautiful (The Ton)

I simple stamped the image and then added some Masking Fluid to keep my flower nice and white. I was so excited to use this fluid because I’ve had it and never used it.

Adding masking fluid

Here is happens when you don’t wait for the masking fluid dry.  I thought I waited long enough but apparently not.  So I had to start all over.

Mistake

I fuss cut out the rose and created my own mask as to not make a mistake again.

Once the mask was down on my cardstock, I used Distress Ink Abandon Coral, Festive Berries and Picked Raspberry to color the background around the flower.

I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Black Ink.

Totally beautiful!!

For card number 2: I used The Ton Sparklers Alpha stamp set!!

Hi (The Ton)

I love when alpha stamps are so nicely place on their storage sheet.  They are super easy to stamp right on your cardstock.

This stamp set has sprinkles and a heart in the right places. I moved the x,y, z over a bit but that’s it.

I inked up the letters with Versamark ink and turned my card panel upside down onto the stamp.

I added white embossing powder then I heat set the letters.

Then I started with the lightest color in the center blending out to the darker color on the outsides.

I used a glitter sun frame from Crate Paper to highlight the word HI!

I adhered this card panel to a black card base to finish this card off!

Finished!!  What do you think?  I love both cards using both of these stamp sets.  Such a great way to bring in the Summer!! Full of color!!!

Let me know what you think below!!  I would love to hear from you.
