The Ton’s 3rd Anniversary Release Blog Hop – Final Day – And A Giveaway!!

By Taheerah | 26th January 2018 | 68 Comments

Hey everyone! Happy Friday!

It’s always fun when I get to play with supplies from my favourite companies. It’s even more awesome when it’s for a fun release celebration! Well, today is one of those days as I’m joining a bunch of other talented ladies in celebrating The Ton’s third Anniversary!

I think if you’ve visited here before then you’ll already know just what I think of this amazing company. From Day 1 I fell in love with their stylish, unique designs – and I’ve been in love ever since! And though The Ton has hit three years old, I can say with certainty that they’re definitely not going through a ‘toddler phase’, lol! In fact, from humble beginnings, they are bigger and better than ever, boasting a collection of 254 stamps (in three years!! Effie is the most prolific designer I have ever known!!), an amazing and vast collection of inks, a fantastic selection of embellishments, and even some superb glittery papers! Outstanding for such  young company, it truly is!

So I’m delighted to have been invited to participate in their Anniversary celebrations today. Happy Birthday, The Ton! Here’s to many more!!

I have a number of cards for you today, and a fun giveaway to boot! Let’s get the party started!

I Kind Of Like You A Lot Lips Card by Taheerah Atchia

I’m starting with a really loved up card, featuring the awesome new Smooched stamp set!

I love lips stamps and really enjoyed creating my background using a variety of pigment inks for an authentic lipstick look!

The set comes with a number of sentiments! Methinks the sender is slightly underplaying their feelings with this one! *wink*

My second card uses the same set, but with very different results:

I Hate You The Least Rocky Horror Lips Card by Taheerah Atchia

Anyone recognise the inspiration for these lips?! I took my cues from The Rocky Horror Picture Show – and I love the results!

You might be looking at the Smooched set and wondering where this lips image is! Well, I created it using the largest lips stamp, and some creative inking! I stamped part of the top lip first, then turned the stamp upside down and stamped part of the bottom lip! I then kept inking alternate corners from top and bottom of the lips, rotating my stamp until I’d produced the lip effect I wanted! A little dotting of ink in the white space created the teeth, and a bit of black colouring did the rest! I am *so* pleased with how it turned out!!

I wanted the rest of the card to resemble a movie poster, so I coloured the bottom half of the card black, leaving the top half white. I used the same red ink from the lips for the sentiment. This one is going on display in my house!!

Next up, I inked up the *awesome* Fresh Cut Daisies set:

Love You A Lot Gerbera Daisies Card by Taheerah Atchia

I just *love* Gerbera Daisies and had been one of a few people who requested a set of them from Effie, and she certainly didn’t disappoint! Just look at the detail on these babies!

I stamped one of each type of daisy, using shades of pink, orange, and yellow for my bouquet. I also quite liked the look of the centres as types of flowers in their own right, so I stamped a couple of those in shades of green too!

I stamped just the base stalk from the sets, then when trimming out my flowers I extended the stalks and inked them in the same shade. This really gives more options with bouquet creation and flower placement! A couple of leaves, and some Pinflair Glue Gel for custom dimension, and my bouquet was all assembled!

Let’s talk about that background, shall we? It feature the Buildable Woodgrain stamp set, which is set to become a staple in my stamping arsenal! I just love how I can create a number of different looks with it!

Some Nuvo Crystal Drops finished off my card nicely, along with a little mist splatter, both of which helped frame my bouquet nicely!

Finally, I used the Buildable Woodgrain set again, for a completely different look:

U + Me 4 Eva Carved Tree Card by Taheerah Atchia

Kinda swooning over this one! That black and glittery gold combo is divine!

I used several stamps in the set to build up my woodgrain pattern, then sprinkled on some sparkling gold embossing powder. Before I heat set it though, I used a tool to scrape away some of the powder to ‘carve’ a love heart and sentiment, just like you would on a tree!

Still swooning over this one!!

  1. Hi Taheerah,

    Wow, what a great set of Valentine’s card designs. They are so unique and you have used The Tons resources so well on each and everyone of them. If I was to choose a favourite it would be a tight choice between the first with the lipstick marks and the Daisies. Great job Taheerah. :O)

  2. All the cards are fantastic but my favorite is the final with the
    wood grain. Love the initials carved into the wood.
    thanks for sharing

  3. I love how creative you are with all of these cards! Such impressive playing with supplies, especially the Rocky Horror tribute. Also, the composition of the photos is great. You have the perfect lip glosses to go with all those lip print stamps, and they’re just really fun photos. Thanks for sharing with us.

  4. OMG, I LOVE you, you are so cute, I loved the first card and thought aww this is my favorite, then I saw the 2nd one and awww, no this is my favorite , then I saw those Gerber daisys and WOW, Gerber Daisys are my FAVORITE ALL Time Flower !!! And you colored them Gorgeous they are just STUNNING, those colors are like OMG, then that last card wow that is so Me and my hubby, we are going on 18 yrs of marriage and that is something we would do, we are such soulmates, lovey dovey in Love. ALL your cards blew me away, the only bad thing is now it’s going to cost me some money because I want the stamps I want the inks, Thanks Taheerah for an AWESOME post today.

  5. Aren’t you prolific! I like them all, but have to say the last one took more than a glance. Once I figured out what you did, I got a fit of giggles and an idea for my grand-boy’s valentine. (He carved his initials in a huge tree in my Mom’s yard, and every time I go down there, I have to take a picture to prove that they still show up! He is 80 years younger than her, but they have a very special bond. ) Great job on them all. Thank you.
