Office Card by Marie Browning July 15, 2013

Today is our Blog Hop with the amazing Jennifer McGuire! If you have come from Jennie’ Blog, then you are on the right track! If not start over at the Tombow Blog!

IMG_1474Here’s an office themed card with multiple pages perfect for when you have a crowd signing!Β  Created using a scalloped edge card blank from Bazzill, office themed stamps from Crafty Secrets and embellishments from Fancy pants . Tombow’s Dot Adhesive Stamp Runner and Irojiten Colored Pencils are also used to make the card.



IMG_1476These photos show how the card opens into three pages and how the stamped images were highlighted using the 5-Pencil Sepia Irojiten Colored Pencils. I first stamped the images onto the paper panels using black ink and then colored around the image using cross-hatching. The panels are adhered using the Dot Adhesive Stamp Runner which gives you a line of adhesive or with the stamping action, a small square of adhesive. Washi tape and embellishments are added to finish the design.

Now hop on over to Jennifer’s Blog to see what she has in store!

    I love the multiple page card idea. Very cool card design. I love that Stamp Runner too. It’s especially great for kids to use because of the single stamp action. The line action is great too.

    Wow! Awesome card. I loved the design of your project and loved the way you colored around the stamped images. I have not seen these colored pencils before–but now i will be on the lookout for them! I used the adhesive runner during a class at Archiver’s and was impressed. I liked the way it could be used as a tape runner or glue dot–pretty cool!

    gorgeous, absolutely beautiful use of colors. i was disappointed to find that our local Michael’s store no longer carries Tombow. i won’t re-create what i already have in Tombow to Reflections, now i guess i will just order online. silly store, i am a great advocate of shopping locally first.

  48. Mmir Says:

    Beautiful card! Love the effects from the sepia colored pencils.

  49. Janis in ID Says:

    It’s like a mini-journal card!! What a great idea!! Colors work great for a guy card, too. Why is it sooooo hard to make guy cards??? Great job.
