The Ton Stamps Blog Hop, Skip and Jump

Welcome to the third and final stop for our first Blog Hop, Skip and Jump and Bauble Giveaway sponsored by The Ton. The first stop was at the The Season and the second stop was at Effie's blog.

I am introducing two sets today: Round Diamonds and Vintage Frames.



Round Diamonds was such a fun set to play with! We have a few tips on the site on how to layer the gems so you can get the desired results. In this card, I tried to keep it a little clean and simple. I love using color with black. You can't really see it in the picture but I added clear embossing powder for one of the layers so that it can add some texture to the gems. It looks so cool!




For my second card using the same set, I decided to use the large outline stamp to create this colorful background. I heat embossed different sizes in white and added color using the Gansai Tambi watercolors. These colors are so rich - love how they turned out. I heat embossed the sentiment on vellum.



This next card, I used Vintage Frames and created a background with one of the frames in a soft gray color. I used the heart from the set and heat embossed it in red on the top layer. The shaker card features some beautiful heart confetti. The sentiment is from Shoe Wardrobe Lined.




Here's another simple card I made using Vintage Frames. I heat embossed a frame and sentiment in gold on black cardstock and added some fun layers in the back, including a touch of cotton, gold thread, and sequins! These frames are one of a kind and make for great focal points. With some masking, one can even frame anything inside. :)



I decided to add in one more card, featuring a set I introduced last week: Shoe Wardrobe Filled. This one is quite simple, too.



Check out my design team posts from last week, featuring Shoes WardrobeSketchy Menagerie, and planner set Scheduled! I also have a personal giveaway in celebration of six months of crafting.

All the sequins featured are from The Ton!
