The Ton Stamps

Welcome Spring

Hello everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards and this fortnight we have a very straightforward challenge!!

We’d like you to use just one image only (if you want to add a sentiment, that is fine too). The optional twist is ‘spring’ and our sponsor is Craftyscrappers.

I was placing an order with The Ton recently and I was aghast to realise that I had never used the gorgeous cherry blossom stamp set that I bought from them a couple of years ago. So, as soon as I saw the optional twist, I knew I had to use it!

I stamped and coloured the image using my Twinkling H2O paints and added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp to finish off my card.

My teammates have created some beautiful designs over at AAA Cards and this fortnight our guest designer is Aleksa who has a beautiful Instagram feed.

Looking forward to seeing all the entries!

Thanks for stopping by!


Rainbow birthday star

Hi everyone!

The theme for this week’s Less is More challenge is ‘stars’ PLUS it’s one layer card week! I seriously think I could have made at least a dozen cards for this challenge – there are so many possibilities!

I used stamps from The Ton for this card. I was inspired by a colourful card that Virginia Lu had created for The Ton and decided to put my own CAS take on it, using distress oxide inks.

I was a bit disappointed that the sentiment didn’t stand out as much as I had planned, but I think it still works.

Thanks for stopping by!


Geometric encouragement card

Hi there!

The theme for this week’s Less is More challenge is ‘geometric’ – and this card is nothing like I had originally planned. In fact I was getting some hexagon dies out when I spotted this lovely image on a Paperartsy stamp set and I knew I had to use it. It kind of reminds me of an odd chemical compound!

I decided to turn this into a male encouragement card and so added a sentiment from The Ton Stamps – loving their stamps!

Thanks for looking!
