Hi and Welcome to the Gold and Cork Blog Hop with Tombow USA and DCWV! We have 2 days full with gorgeous projects using GOLD and CORK! You probably came here from Karen Jiles’s Blog but if you happened to stumble across my blog go to the DCWV Blog to start!
For my post I created these lettered paper canvases for a super quick home decor accent!
Gather your materials for the Lettered Canvas Panels: I used the DCWV Gilded Stack, the wood pages and the lettered panels. Tombow products include the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive, Blending Mister (filled with water), Dual Brush Colors 476, 346 and 373, and the new Xtreme Mounting Putty.
Cut the lettered panels from the DCWV Gilded Stack. I used the brush tip of the marker and applied color over the gilded lettering. To blend the edges, simply spray with the Blending Mister. Let it dry and then repeat for a nice saturation of color to make the lettering pop!
Create the paper canvases using the wood patterned paper from the DCWV Gilded Stack. The paper panels make a very strong and durable dimensional canvas. You can make them all the same depth, or create different depths like I did for added interest. The following sizes are based on a 4″ x 6″ lettered panel with a 1/2″ boarder. For a 3/4″ deep canvas, cut your paper 6.5″ x 8.5″ and score at 3/4″ along all the edges. For a 1″ deep canvas, cut your paper 9″ x 7″ and score at 1″ along all the edges. For a 2″ deep canvas, cut your paper 9″ x 11″ and score at 2″ along all the edges. For each canvas, you will need two paper panels, a top panel and a bottom panel. For the top panel, cut the corners as shown in the photo above. Fold along all scores and adhere the corners together as shown using the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive
For the bottom panel (which is cut to size and scored exactly like the top panel) cut your corners as shown in the above photo. Slip the bottom panel into the top panel. It holds together very well, if needed, add a little adhesive on the sides to hold together. Here is a photo of a finished paper canvas. The beautiful DCWV paper makes it look like a wooden canvas!!!
Adhere the lettered and colored panels to the the paper canvases. I added a gilded boarder panel as well. The finished pieces are attached to the wall using the Xtreme Mounting Putty. I also placed some objects on the tops for accent which were also attached using the mounting putty. Seriously, I can’t imagine living without this putty! So great for hanging items without marring your walls and to keep objects in place!
Here is a side view showing the different depths of the paper canvases.

Here’s the line up for today, Saturday, March 28th:
I started with this cute memo pad holder from Kaisercraft.
I covered it with a book page using Mono Aqua Liquid Glue, the perfect paper to wood glue! I cut the paper a little bit larger than the wood piece, and then used a emery board to sand the edges to make it perfectly flush.
The Oh Happy Day Matching Die Cuts makes it super easy and quick to cut out the blossoms!
The flowers were adhered to the back of the memo holder using both the Dots Adhesive Tape Runner and Foam Tabs from Tombow. The little bit of dimension from the Foam Tabs makes those bright blossoms pop! I also added a 727 Zoom Pen from Tombow for a lovely gift pairing.

Welcome to the Tombow and Stampendous Winter Wonderland Blog Hop! If you just came from Janelle’s blog, you are on the right track! If not, you may want to start here at the Stampendous Blog so you are entered to win a prize! This is a three day blog-hop that started on Friday.
For this project, I choose two stamps from Stampendous; ‘Snow Bird’ and ‘Tis the Season’. I’m also trying out Stampendous’ new ‘Spoonful of Snow’ which is a mixture of embossing powders and elements.
From Tombow I used Irojiten Colored Pencils, Color Pencil Eraser, Ippo Sharpener, Glue Pen and Dots Adhesive.
I stamped the Snow Bird onto blue pastel paper with a black ink pad. I then used the Irojiten Colored Pencils to color the bird. The colors blend and layer beautifully, and you get that added bonus of having them work so nicely on colored paper.
I then used the ‘Spoonful of Snow’ to add the snow. I am really excited about this product, pure genius! Watch this video on how to use it! The Glue Pen was used on the snow on the berries and branches to keep the snow to stay in place, and the rest was sprinkled over the panel. I used a dry, clean brush to remove any bits where I didn’t want it and then embossed from the bottom with my heat tool. The results were spectacular!
Here is the completed card. I also added a few plastic snowflakes on with the glue pen. The edging was done with a VersaMark stamp pad and dark blue chalk. I really liked how nicely the snow and Irojiten colors look on the blue colored panel!
Here’s my attempt to show you how sparkly the card is! It’s very sparkly!

Do you have an ornament exchange party this season? Here’s a great project that I created and made 15 in 1 evening with the help of Tombow Adhesives!
Here is the finished shadow box ornament.
Here are the Tombow Products you will need:
Here’s the supplies you need to make ONE ornament:
Step 1: Using the Xtreme Adhesive , (Xtreme is a perfect choice for quick, strong adhesion!) glue the decorative paper panel into the folded corrugated piece. Fringe cut the decorative paper every 1/4″
Step 2: Before going to the next step, stamp and color one of the circle pieces using the Dual Brush Pens.This will be the back of the ornament.
Step 3: Form the shadow box into a circle and glue ends together using the Mono Multi. Use a clothespin to hold while drying. Fold in the fringes and using the Mono Multi, glue the circles to the inside and back to form the circular shadow box. With the shadow box made, I then glued in rhinestones on both sides using the Mono Multi (the fine tip is easy to control to make tiny drops of glue).
Step 4: Create the beaded hanger by punching a tiny hole at the top of the shadow box. Add some beads to the headpin, then place through the hole. Continue to add a few more beads. Add a tiny drop of Mono Multi Glue in-between each bead. Fold the top of the headpin to form the hanger.
Step 5: I added glitter to the trees by rolling them in a puddle of Aqua Glue and then sprinkling on the glitter. (Aqua is my main go-to glue for adding glitter!) The glittery forest was so pretty!
Step 6: Build your scene! Tear apart the cotton ball and drizzle some Aqua Glue on. Mix it gently by pulling the cotton apart and place into the shadow box (yes, I know, a little messy but Aqua washes away easily with a wet wipe).Glue in the trees and the deer with the Multi Glue. Sprinkle on some glitter and set aside to dry.
Step 7: Add a bow to the top with a Power Tab and you’re finished! The Tombow Adhesives allowed me to speed through this project with great results! Make sure you ask Santa for your favorite Adhesives this holiday!
In order to be qualified to win this amazing PRIZE,Tombow’s Dual Brush Pen Bright Set, PLEASE comment on each of the designers projects. We will announce a winner Monday, November 17. Now go to our guest designer Jen Goode’s Blog to see what she has created for you!
What a great challenge Debbie! I’m going to show you how to make Mini Cupcake Cloches using Tombow’s Power Tabs! This idea is great for a presentation of mini cupcakes or handmade goodies for a tasty gift – with the best part you are really giving them a set of stemless wine glasses! I picked up some clear glasses, plastic beads and beaded trim at the dollar store. You will also need some cabinet knob bases or flat-topped cabinet knobs.
With a Power Tab, attach the knob base to the middle of the upturned glass.
With another Power Tab, add the plastic bead. There will be exposed adhesive around the base of the bead, just enough to add a small piece of beaded trim for extra decoration.
That’s it! How easy is that! Your Mini Cloches are finished! Yes, they are strong enough to pick up by the knob if you are using the cheap dollar store glasses – you may want to use two Power Tabs for heavier cut crystal! After the presentation, simply pull off the knobs (tug hard) and fill with wine! Cheers!
This week we are blog hopping with guest designer Lindsay Weirich, also known as the Frugal Crafter! I have a new DoodleDab for you, “Willow in the Wind” done in Autumn hues to accent a card. If you just came from Jennie Garcia’s blog you are on the right track. If not, you may want to start at the beginning here at the Tombow Blog so you are eligible to win the prize!
Here are the step outs for the DoodleDab. Remember to turn the paper so it’s easy to place the teardrop strokes. For the accent on the card I used the colors from the Dual Brush Pen Set, Muted Colors.
I added color to the photograph using a few matching colors of Irojiten Colored Pencils.
The panels were attached using the Xtreme Adhesive and the photo panel popped up with Foam Tabs. I used my Envelope Punch Board to create a matching envelope. The Xtreme Adhesive is perfect for constructing the envelope instantly and securely! Don’t forget to add more DoodleDabs to decorate the panel on the envelope!
In order to be qualified to win this amazing prize, a Dual Brush Pen Set, Muted Colors, please comment on each of the designer’s projects. We will announce a winner Monday Oct. 27.
Your next stop is Lindsay’s blog, our guest this week to see what wonderful creation she has for you!
Welcome to Hydrangea Hippo’s Parks and Recreation Blog Hop! I created a personalized clip board; what every recreational programmer needs (especially if you have political aspirations!) using Fancy Pants’ Timbergrove Collection and Tombow Adhesives.
I decorated both the front and the back of the clipboard with the papers and embellishments. I love when paper collections have everything you need to make it fun and simple to coordinate your project!
To start, I covered both the front and back with paper using MONO Aqua Liquid Glue. It’s a perfect paper to wood glue that goes on smooth with no wrinkles. The photo, frame, tickets and smile panel were attached using the MONO Adhesive Dots Runner.
Any heavier embellishments, like this button on the metal clip, are attached using Xtreme Adhesive. This high performance adhesive is 5x stronger than standard tape runners!
For that finishing touch, I attached a pen to the board using a Fastener Tab. These hook and loop tags are ultra thin with a long-lasting grip that can be pulled apart and stuck together as often as you like. A very handy way to have your pen always at the ready! I used one of favorite Tombow pens, the Zoom 727 Ballpoint.
Another quick and fun project using Tombow Adhesives!
This Roster tag features a technique I developed called Subtractive Stamping. It uses book pages that have been scanned and printed (actual book pages are too delicate to use). The images are stamped on very lightly, then erased with the Colored Pencil Eraser to remove the print. You then stamp again with black ink and color with the Irojiten Colored Pencils.
It’s all explained in my new book, Pencil Magic, hot off the press from Design Originals, Fox Chapel Publishing! It’s just one of the many different graphite and colored pencil techniques I share. This book is excellent for beginners, as well as experienced artists, with many new techniques for you to try.
The subtractive stamping technique works with other ephemera such as vintage journal pages, documents and music sheets! This bird card is done with a scanned and printed Italian document from 1836.
What can you create using book pages? If you haven’t guessed, the challenge for this month is BOOKS! Anything related with books; altered books, quotes from your favorite books, library cards, book paper, mini books! The sky is the limit! Create a book inspired project for your chance to win Jennie’s Book Challenge! Check out the great prize! It will include Xtreme Adhesive, Mono Multi Liquid Glue and Foam Tabs! Winner will be announced Sept 24.

It’s harvest time! My bushes and trees are just loaded with fruit this year, grapes, apples and scarlet runner beans will be processed into grape jelly, applesauce and mustard beans this weekend! In honor of the harvest I made a quick DIY home project with pear shaped crystals from Connie Crystals and Tombow Adhesives!
These are so simple to make! Add a little bit of the Mono Multi Liquid Glue onto the back of a crystal and place onto your image. Let dry crystal clear and trim away the excess paper.
I hung some of the crystals on chain with a clip at the top to hang from lamps, use as fan pulls or just to display in a window. I think I may even put one in my car! I used 1/2 of a Power Tab to attach the velvet leaf onto the back.
Some I made into magnets to use in my office on the filing cabinet. One Power Tab is plenty strong enough to attach the magnet to the back.
Aren’t they great? I think they would make great gifts for friends at your office as well!
In order to qualify to win this amazing prize, Mono Aqua Liquid Glue and an Irojiten Color Pencil Sepia 5 set, please comment on each of the designer’s projects! The lucky winner will be announced on Monday Sept 15.

I used the Coffee Love Stamp Set from the Precious Remembrance Shop and some cardstock from DCWV Sunshine Stack. This is a very simple holder designed for those yummy instant iced coffee packages. I see me using the coffee cup stamp a lot! I used Xtreme Adhesive to fold the paper and create the pouch. The Dot Adhesive runner for the paper panels and Foam Tabs to lift up the lid and center of the coffee cup. To apply the trim, add a line of Mono Multi Liquid Glue, and let it dry clear. It will be super sticky and will hold the trim firmly in place. A green Dual Brush Pen colored the small motif accents.
The Prize will include amazing products from BOTH Companies!
