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!

Welcome to the final day of the  TombowUSA  and Precious Remembrance Shop  Blog Hop! If you’re here from the Tombow Blog, then you’re in the right place!

IMG_1071

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.

I used the Oh So Fun Stamp Set from the Precious Remembrance Shop and some cardstock from DCWV Sunshine Stack. I loved the cute jar stamps that were stamped out and colored with the #312 Dual Brush Pen – the perfect jar color! I used the Dot Adhesive runner for all the paper panels and Foam Tabs to lift up the flowers and ‘celebrate’ panel. The flowers were made by gluing a flat clear marble onto a punched out flower with Mono Multi Liquid Glue. I also added a little silver bullion wire into the jar for extra bling! A black Dual Brush Pen added the flower stems for the finishing touch.

Blog Hop with Michele Kovack May 5, 2014

Welcome to this week’s Blog Hop with the Tombow Design team! Our guest is Michele Kovack, paper crafter extraordinaire! If you have just come from Jennie’s Blog you are on the right track! If not, you may want to start here.  Make sure to go to the bottom of the post where you will find information on how to win this week’s prize!

IMG_3582

I am featuring a Zentangle Inspired Artwork I created using the Dual Brush Pens and some wonderful new permanent markers from Tombow; a Fudenosuke Pen and a Mono Twin Marker. I started by sketching out my design with a 4H Mono Drawing Pencil, the hard lead left light pencil marks that were easy to erase away when finished. The bird was inked using a Fudenosuke Pen, that gave me beautiful varied lines. Imagine a tiny brush tip that, with pressure, changes from from very fine to broad strokes. I then colored the bird using muted colors of Dual Brush Pens, blending the colors with a brush and water.

IMG_3624

The black and white design was then added using the MONO Twin Permanent Black Marker, using both the fine and broad tips. I then shaded using B, F and 2B grades of the MONO Drawing Pencils.

Blog Hop_MKThis week’s prize is Xtreme Adhesive, MONO Adhesive Removable and  Aqua Glue.

In order to be entered to win, please comment on all the designer’s projects this week! Your next blog to visit is our honored guest, Michele Kovack!

 

Blog Hop with Elizabeth Craft Design April 20, 2014

Thanks for joining us with the Tombow and Elizabeth Craft Design Blog Hop! If you just came from Kelly’s blog, you are on the right track! If not, you may want to start here to be able to win a great prize!

IMG_3509

I created several pieces for the hop. This card is a cute little owl that used the silver Owl Circles peel-off colored with the Dual Brush Pens on Watercolor Paper. The background panel is blue pearl paper embossed with the Flower Mosaic Embossing folder. The panels are attached using the Dots Adhesive and Foam Tabs give a fun dimension to the finished piece. I also used Mono Multi Liquid Glue to attach the Happy Birthday die cut and googly eyes.

IMG_3511

This card looks great in person! The subtle coloring with Dual Brush Pens on the silver Dragon ladies peel-off contrasts nicely with the dark background. After coloring, I cut the dragonfly lady out and attached it to the front panel using Foam Tabs and Mono Multi Liquid Glue for dimension. The peel-off sheets come with smaller details to make your finished creations ‘pop’ with these layered pieces. I used the Happy Birthday die and lots of rhinestones in the peel-off boarder and smaller embellishments. The Mono Multi liquid glue was used to attach this extra bling.

IMG_3513For my final project I used a gold Owl Circle peel-off colored with the Dual Brush Pens. Again, both  the Dragonfly Lady and Owl were done on Elizabeth Craft Design Watercolor Paper. I glued it on a dollar-store memo pad with the New Xtreme Adhesive. A little bit of washi tape around the edge and it’s done! It would make a great gift for the upcoming Administrative Professionals Day along with a Fine Pen from Tombow!

Blog Hop_ECD_2Look at this wonderful Prize you can win! From Elizabeth Craft Design, a selection of Peel-Off stickers, Watercolor Paper, Double-Sided Adhesive Sheets, Congratulations Die, Stand Up Helpers Die Set and Warm Diamond Silk Glitter. From Tombow the new Xtreme Adhesive and the 10 pack Retro Dual Brush Pen Set. 

In order to win the prize, please comment on all the Design team’s projects this week as well as “LIKE” tombowUSA and Elizabeth Craft Design on facebook.
