Hello crafty friends! Here is Mayline’s blog! Thanks for joining me for The Ton Summer 2016 Release Blog Hop! We’ve had an amazing week sharing all of our new stamps with you. All products are now available for purchase in the shop.

For my hop project I created a pair of fun Ice cream cards using The Ton’s Summer 2016 Release stamp sets Sundae Bar stamp set and Minor Stripes BG stamp.

To start off, I created a melting effect background using a masking technique on a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 A2 some white cardstock. For the yellow part,  I used a blending technique with Beach Blondie Dye ink.

Then I stamped ice cream images from Sundae Bar stamp set which debuted on Day 3 using Noir Dye InkCosmopolitan Pink Hybrid ink, Coralline Hybrid ink, and Hot Tourmaline Dye ink  on separate cardstock.

After that I fussy cut them and adhered ice creams to the background with foam mounting tape. Lastly I stamped a sentiment from Sundae Bar stamp set using Noir Dye Ink.
