Tombow and Stampendous Blog Hop March 21, 2014

Welcome to the Tombow and Stampendous Blog Hop! If you just came from Jamie Martin’s blog you are on the right track! If not, you may want to start at the beginning at the Tombow Blog!

House mouse chart IrojitenFor this hop, I started by making a new House-Mouse Color Chart using Tombow’s Irojiten Colored Pencils! All the super-cute mice from this very popular Stampendous collection are here! The Irojiten Colored Pencils are so easy to use and blend to add the colors, you will love them for the mice! Here are some cards I made using the House-Mouse Stamps and the Irojiten Colored Pencils. The paper stamped with the images is Mix Media paper from Canson, the decorative paper is ‘My Sunshine Stack’ from DCWV  and the solid colored cardstock from Bazzill.

IMG_3461This card used the ‘Knit Gift’ Stamp and features Amanda and Muzzy. I also used the ‘Friendship Assortment’ Stamp Set for the sentiments. The wool wrapped around the card was a nice extra touch. I love coloring Muzzy with the Irojiten Pencils, it’s fun to add long strike strokes to his fur to make him extra fuzzy! I used the new Xtreme Adhesive to attach the yarn wrapped panel to the card. Tombow’s Foam Tabs and Dots Adhesive was also used.

IMG_3462Isn’t this card cute? I loved coloring it! The stamp is ‘Balloon Trio’ from Stampendous and features Mudpie, Maxwell and Amanda. To make the shiny balloon embellishments, I glued flat clear marbles onto scraps of paper with Multi Liquid Glue. Let dry, cut them out and attach to the card with the Xtreme Adhesive. I also used the Dots Adhesive for the paper panels and added a bit of washi tape for added accent.

IMG_3463My final card was created using the ‘Warm Cup’ Stamp. Here little sweetie Mudpie relaxes in a nice warm mug. I followed the coloring theme and picked nice paper and embellishment colors to match. Again the Dots Adhesive holds the paper panels and a little drop of Multi Glue for the rhinestone.
