I am SO excited to be representing The Ton in the 2015 Crafty Friendship Blog Hop! This year’s hop celebrates Esther Rovira from Arcadia de Papel because of her support to so many blogs in Spain, the USA, and the rest of the blogging community! We chose March 20th because it is her blog’s anniversary!
In the spirit of the blog hop theme, my card is dedicated to my family and friends who put up with all of my crafting talk, my faithful and kind readers who leave such sweet comments, and my fellow design team members at The Ton, A Blog Named Hero, Jessica Lynn Original, Craft Storage Ideas, and Christmas Card Challenges for your friendship and support!
And many thanks to our amazing sponsors who have lined up some fantastic prizes and discounts (plus I have a special giveaway of my own)!! You can find more information on all of that below!
The 2015 Crafty Friendship Blog Hop came at a wonderful time for The Ton because we’re gearing up for our second release with lots of sneak peeks at the new stamp sets…and I convinced Effie to let me show a whole card using some of our new stamps and sentiments!! You’ll have to keep visiting The Ton’s blog to see the rest of the sets! 😉
Here’s my card:
If you’re a regular reader I bet you’re not the least bit surprised that it’s a shaker card!
I started off by stamping that adorable panda onto an A2 piece of white cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink and heat-embossing it with clear powder. I die-cut the Lawn Fawn Grassy Borders die twice on green cardstock, offset them, and adhered them to the bottom of the panel with my Tombow MONO Multi liquid glue. Next, I die-cut the speech bubble from the top of the panel to create the shaker. I used purple glitter paper to create a frame and adhered it to the panel with my Tombow stamp runner. Then I turned the panel upside down and adhered a piece of acetate to the top of the panel.
Huzzah…SEQUIN time!! The Ton carries a gorgeous line of sequins, confetti, and couture mixes! I decided to mix the Purple Ballgown Couture Mix with Silver Star Confetti for my shaker card and I might have gotten a little carried away and overfilled it just a bit! But it’s so bright and cheerful! *Sigh*…I just love sparkly sequins!
To finish my card I stamped that fun sentiment from one of our new sets with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and adhered the panel to my shaker. Finally I adhered the completed shaker to a top-folding A2 card and gave it a good shake to mix up those sequins and confetti!!
