January Challenge 1/18


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


The winner of our Mood Board Challenge is…  Lisa!


We love how Lisa incorporated different elements of the mood board into her project in a creative fashion to bring this holiday/New Year card to life. Her usage of the clean and simple but chic patterned background combined with the stark black and white color palette was winner in our book!

Congratulations, Lisa! Please email us at HELLO@THETONSTAMPS.COM to claim your $50 gift certificate.

For this month’s new challenge, we have a cue word: CHEERS


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


To participate in our challenge, create a paper crafting project based on the theme “CHEERS”. You may use our team’s cards for inspiration but it’s not required!

  1. You must use a Ton product as the main focal point of your card or tag.
  2. Display the cue word on your post and include a link to the challenge in the body of your post.
  3. Link your card to the new link up tool each month. 
  4. There is no limit on the number of cards/tags you wish to enter into the challenge.
  5. The winning project will be chosen based upon detail, composition and aesthetics.
  6. Challenge winners and Honorable Mentions will be announced during the introduction of the subsequent challenge.
  7. Winners will be invited to be a guest designer for the next challenge.
  8. This challenge will close on November 30 at 11:55pm EST.
