Floral & Perfume-Inspired Cards (The Ton Spring 2017 Release Blog Hop)

By Taheerah | 7th April 2017 | 73 Comments

Hey everyone! Happy Friday!

There’s something rather evocative about perfume.

Whether it conjures memories of a lover’s tryst, or a grandmother’s cuddle, or a high-powered business executive, scent has the ability to pervade our senses. Perfume carries an air of sophistication and luxury – and that’ before you even look at the price tag of those pretty bottles.

Imagine if you could have the papercrafting equivalent then – perfume bottle stamps! Well, that’s just one of several amazing sets being released by The Ton for their Spring release! As usual there are all manner of drool-worthy goodies being released by this awesome company – but it’s safe to say that the perfume set that drew me the most.

We’re celebrating The Ton’s release with a Blog Hop, and I’m delighted to be a part of it!

I have a couple of cards for you today, and a fun giveaway to boot! Let’s get straight to it!

Chanel Bottle Card by Taheerah Atchia

I’m starting with probably one of my most favourite ‘create it yourself’ cards in recent times! I was so inspired by the perfume set that I decided to emulate one of the designs into a near-A2-sized version!

I drew that perfume bottle myself! So happy with how it turned out! I left some of the pencil marks to show that ‘drafted drawing’ look. Love little details like that.

I used one of the stamps from the new Modern Labels set, using a little selective inking to create a slightly short rectangle to use as the bottle label! The sentiment is from the previously released Timeless Icons set, it just worked so well.

And as for the gold finish? I mixed a little Distress Ink and gold mist to create a sort of paint and used that to add my golden perfume to the bottle! So very happy with how this turned out!

My second card uses the actual Marvelous Perfumes set and takes its inspiration from some of the art prints out there:

All Kinds Of Happy Wildflower Miss Dior Perfume Card by Taheerah Atchia

I stamped the flowers from Wishful Wildflowers with a light Distress Ink then watercoloured with Zig Brush Markers for a no-line watercolour look! I had to mask a few of the flowers for my composition, but it was so worth it.

I heat embossed the perfume bottle and then watercoloured over it, before stamping the sentiment from Modern Labels to finish.

Crazy about this card – might frame this one!

  1. Love the flowers coming out of the perfume bottle.
    the colors are so soft and pretty.
    thanks for sharing.

  2. Wow what an inspirational card you have made, thanks for showing that you can draw your own things and use stamps to finish it off.

  3. Your Chanel bottle brought back fond memories of the one that sat on my mother’s bureau long after the perfume was actually gone! Love your work!

  4. Love the larger bottle that you drew. It’s so gorgeous. I also really like the flowers behind the smaller bottle. It ties in the beautiful smell of flowers with the aroma of the perfume. Thank you for sharing your work!

  5. Beautiful and elegant cards! Awesome perfume bottle drawing and love the bottle as a flower vase, both are stunning!

  6. I love this pretty card idea! The little bottle is so classy and elegant! Love the color combo too!
