Thus, The Ton has a total of 26 new designs releasing on Thursday, April 12. We hope you understand!

I have been wishing for a layered macarons set, The Ton style, for a very long time, so I was thrilled when I saw the two macarons sets we are debuting today! My first project focuses on the gorgeous new Sweet Macarons and Party Fans sets. This tower of macarons is so very festive, so very elegant, so very Parisian. Gorgeous. I started by stamping the beautiful tower outline using The Ton's hybrid black ink, then stamping the pink layer with Rose Quartz and the green layer with Lofty Mint inks. I colored the flower, frosting centers, and platter base with my Prismacolor colored pencils. 



For the background, I started by blending Rose Quartz and Lofty Mint inks lightly on my card base, taking care not to mix the two colors so I didn't have a muddy brown mess. :) Next, I stamped the adorable fans from Party Fans using the Ruby Collection and the Minted Collection inks. I fussy cut the pretty tower of macarons, die cut the Happy Birthday from silver foil, then stamped the "my sweet friend" from Macarons onto a vellum Stitched Rectangle using white embossing powder. 



I popped everything up with dimensional adhesive and added a few sequins from the Cotton Candy Puff incentive gift with purchase. Love how elegant and still festive these macarons are! I can't stop playing with them!



Last for today: a simple and pretty card using the brand new Morning Glory Border. I received the full set of Prismacolor pencils for Christmas, and this set was just begging to be played with using my new colored pencils! I stamped the lovely Morning Glory Border stamp on some Toner Grey paper from Strathmore, then used white detail embossing powder to pick up all of the pretty details. To color the flowers, I first laid down a layer of white colored pencil, then added the color on top, using my blender pencil to make everything nice and smooth. The flowers are so pretty that I just added a simple dimensional die cut Thank You sentiment, covered it in a little Spectrum Noir sparkle pen, and added some Glass Slipper sequins. 

Well, that's all for my projects today. Now, for some more fun announcements!
