Winter Wonderland Blog Hop with Tombow & Stampendous! November 23, 2014

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!


In order to be entered to win this amazing prize, Tombow Dual Brush Pens, 10 set Bright and Stampendous!
