Holiday Bows The Ton 4 Holiday Bows Two Step Stamping: The Ton Fall 2015 Release Blog Hop

Welcome to The Ton Fall 2105 Release Blog Hop!  I about fell out when I saw what Effie had up her sleeve…I mean SEVENTEEN new stamp sets along with dies, couture sequin mixes and building???!!  WOW!

The Ton already has a fabulous collection of stamps and now this release really rounds out this line.  So many amazing things, it was hard for me to choose what to share with you!

Well…actually, it wasn’t that hard.  I have an interesting relationship with the Holiday Bows stamp set.  View the video to see what I mean….

So what were YOUR thoughts when you saw the Holiday Bows Stamp Set?

The first card is a simple 4-1/4 x 3″ layer with a skinny little accent strip (just run your ink pad across it to perfectly coordinate it with your stamped image!) and a 5-1/4 x 4-1/4″ black embossed layer on a card front.

Like I said in the video, the greeting got a bit lost on this card, but the bows are super fun and cheerful!

Ahhhh, this is my favorite card.  I’m actually rather obsessed with it.  The blow right under the “gh” in Bright is stamped a bit off, but the one to the left of the greeting, JUST LOOK AT IT!  It makes me go AAAHHHHHH!  I love it!

Once I stamped the greeting and embossed it in gold, I decided a gold layer behind it would be perfect.  I used Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing Powder by WOW! which is a really nice gold with some “chunks” in it.  Looks all 1800’s Gold Rush to me!

    I love these stamps. I’ve never seen these kind of bows as a stamp. My favorite of the cards you made is the Christmas one.

    Nailed it! First thought- that stamp ain’t gonna work. How wrong could I be?? Should known because I have the diamonds layering sets…duh.

    I LOVE the Christmas bows card! It is lovely! I went to the website to order it, but it was sold out and there was not an option to be notified when available. Do you know when this set will be available to order again? Thanks so much ;-)
