October Challenge 10/17


Hello and welcome back to our Challenge Blog post!  Let’s kick off today’s post by announcing our September Mood Board Challenge results!


The winner of our September Mood Board Challenge is… Ericka!


We chose Ericka’s beautiful Dahlia Close Up card for her skillful and creative use of color which transformed her dahlia into a seasonal sunflower.

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



Here are three additional projects that especially stood out to us:


Jennifer B.‘s beautifully colored our Happiest of Peonies using a fall color palette.


Michelle’s creative use of our Floral Border stamp combined with bright fall colors make this worthy of an honorable mention.


Sayaka created a wonderful box of fall themed macarons that caught our eye for this challenge!

All of the entries from our October Mood Board Challenge were so creative and we’d like to thank everyone who participated in last month’s Challenge!

For this month’s new challenge, we have a fun coffee themed Mood Board Challenge!


Create any type of paper crafting project inspired by our Mood Board. You may be inspired by images in the photos or by some of the colors you see in the images on the board. We leave it up to you in regards to what you choose to take away from this board. We cannot wait to see how you interpret our Mood Board for this month’s challenge! Scroll down to see some inspiration by our Guest Designer and design team members and how they have interpreted this month’s Challenge.

  3. Hello: I was wondering if there are any rules to participate in this challenge. I only have one The Ton stamp set and it’s the “Pyrotechnics” since I discovered this company not to long ago.
    I would love to participate but I don’t know if I can use images from other companies?
    Thank you for any information about this.
    Maria Rodriguez.


  4. Such a lovely selection of cards. Love that while everyone has used The Tons stamps every single designer has made them there on.
    So much inspiration.
