Hello Love | The Ton 6th Anniversary Release

Hello there, I hope your week is going well!

The Ton Stamps is celebrating their sixth anniversary with a new release and an Instagram hop. To join in the hop and enter for a chance for a giveaway, visit me over on Instagram!

For my card today I used the new Fancy Foliage and Ribbons General stamp sets. I love how easy these stamps are to layer together! Each set comes with large stamps that bundle multiple images or sentiments together. Layer just a few large stamps, then use a single coordinating die and you end up with many separate images in sentiments with just a single pass through your die cut machine!

I began by stamping six sets of leaves in rainbow colors onto Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock. Using the coordinating die, I cut out the leaves and set them aside. Because of the unique layering and die cutting system, I only had to ink up the two layering stamps a total of 12 times (a light and dark version of 6 colors) and die cut 6 times in order to end up with 30 separate pieces!

Next, I positioned the Ribbons General stamp into a Misti and masked off all but the Hello sentiment. I stamped the first layer in a light pink and then aligned the second layer. I again masked off all but the Hello sentiment and stamped again.

Using a circle die, I cut out the Hello and then stamped Love in black pigment ink. Then I cut a slightly larger circle of vellum and adhered the sentiment circle to the vellum circle.

To help hold things together while I assemble the card, I placed a 4″ x 5.25″ inch piece of Neenah Solar White onto a Ranger Make Art Stay-tion which is a metal square. Using one of the magnets that comes with the Stay-tion, I anchored the sentiment in the center of the panel while I positioned and adhered the leaves. Then I backed the sentiment with foam tape and adhered it to the card front. To finish, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thanks so much for coming by!
