April Challenge 4/17

Hello and welcome back to our Challenge Blog post!  Let’s start with announcing our March Challenge results!


The winner of our March Challenge is…. Yukiko!


Yukiko colored our Floral Border stamp wonderfully and created a perfect shaker card with a bright and contrasting blue background that compliments her floral border beautifully.

Congratulations, Yukiko! Please email us at thetonstamps@gmail.com to claim your gift certificate and details on being our guest designer for our May Challenge!



We wanted to showcase three additional projects that especially stood out to us:


Ceal did an amazing job of coloring her Haute Wedding Dress and creating a beautiful Dahlia pattern within the dress!

Dana’s adorable bear card is perfect in composition and layout and the story behind her card is so culturally informative!


Ericka watercolored our Dahlia Close Up and created beautiful green contrast on each leaf.

All of the entries were so creative and gorgeous and we’d like to thank everyone who participated for our March Lucky Challenge!

For this month’s Challenge, there is no particular theme- Anything Goes!

Anything Goes so long as you use The Ton stamps and other Ton products as the focus of your project!


The prize for this challenge will be a $50 gift certificate to our shop!


To participate in our challenge, create a paper crafting project using a theme of your own choice since Anything Goes this month! You may use any of our team’s cards for inspiration but it’s not required!

  2. Display the cue word/inspiration photo on your blog post and include a link to this challenge in the body of your post.
  3. You must link up your card and post to the In Links link up tool contained in this post.
  4. There is no limit to the number of projects you wish to enter into the challenge.
  5. The winning project will be chosen based upon detail, composition and aesthetics.
