The Ton’s Fall 2016 Release Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to The Ton's Fall 2016 Release Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the start of all the fun, The Ton blog!

The Ton has 23 new stamps for their Fall 2016 Release (18 clear stamps, 5 rubber cling) which include the Christmas Poinsettia set - a mini 2x3 stamp set which will be included in all orders over $100 (before shipping and taxes).  All new release products (stamps, gilding and coordinating dies) are available now!  


Four $25 gift certificates will be given away to random commenters on all the hop participant blogs. The comment period will close on Thursday, September 29th at 11:59pm. Winners will be announced thereafter. 

I have 3 cards to share with you so let's get started!  First up is a holiday design that includes the Holiday Border Cling Background teamed up with Mistletoe Kisses.

Sigh, the Holiday Border Cling Background is gorgeous, isn't it?!  I can't get over the amount of detail work.  I couldn't wait to heat emboss it with Zing Glitter Gold.  I did some random coloring using Ken Oliver's Color Burst in Pthalo Green.  The sentiment is from Mistletoe Kisses and makes it perfect to slip in a Starbucks Giftcard!

Have you seen the new Dog Life set?!

Pet sympathy cards are a challenge but isn't that sentiment so sweet?  Check out that sweet pup...I wanted to do some messy watercoloring and added some pink details.

Next up is something I'm guessing you were waiting for...

Since it's the week of the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop AND The Ton is a returning Super Sponsor...I knew that I wanted to create something that would be perfect!  I combined Dog Life with Tea Party.

My design was inspired by the current Retrosketches:

Next up for the Ton's Fall 2016 Release blog Hop is Mayline Jung!

Here's the entire hop listing in case you get lost along the way:

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® + Lawn Fawn

Hello and Welcome to the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®  + Lawn Fawn collaboration!  Make sure you check both blogs for tons of inspiration this week!  I have a fun little project to share today, check out some of my supplies:

I decided to make an ABC project (Anything But a Card) using the new Lawn Fawn Scallop Treat Box.  I die cut it twice using the same kraft cardstock.  I teamed it up with the Extreme Double-sided Tape - 1/8".  

I need to decorate the front of the box before assembling the box together so I used the Lovable Legends stamp set along with the Stitched Tree Borders and the Pint Sized Patterns:  Beachside paper  pad.  The E-Z Runner® Grand Dispenser is the perfect adhesive to assemble the scenery!  The Big foot is on Thin 3D Foam Squares – Mix White.  I’m a big fan of having my designs spill off of the base. 

Putting together the treat box is super quick and easy.  Here are the pieces laid out and ready to peel aways the Extreme Double-sided Tape - 1/8".

With the one side complete, this pic shows what it looks like:

Here's the finished project!

This Treat box is perfect to drop in wrapped candies or even a gift card!  I love how it instantly becomes the card and wrap ---> perfect!

Remember to pop over to the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®  + Lawn Fawn blogs to check out all the projects today and be eligible for prizes!  There will be inspiration galore all week long!
