good luck….by melissa cash 1


Happy Friday Everyone!

This week my Tombow teammates and I are sharing projects with the “Luck of the Irish” theme in honor of St. Paddy’s Day tomorrow.  

I created this card using stamps from the Our Craft Lounge Shamrock Blessings set.  One of my favorite ways to use Tombow Dual Brush Pens is to color directly on my stamps.  For this card I used the following colors:  098 Avocado, 177 Dark Jade, 665 Purple and 676 Royal Purple.  I started by coloring the lighter color of marker onto the stamp and then just tapping on a bit of the darker colors.  Give the stamp a little “huff” to re-moisten the ink and then stamp onto some cardstock.  I then stamped the sentiment right over the top of the image.  Now, some people call me an “adhesive hound” because I use many different adhesives on all of my projects from cards to 3D items.  

I like to use Tombow Mono Dots Roller when I am holding patterned papers/cardstocks together as it has a nice strong hold and I can always be sure that my cards arrive at their destination safely together in one piece. Did you know that the roller is refillable? On this card I also used Tombow Mono Multi to add a thin line of adhesive down to hold this pretty May Arts trim in place. The final adhesive I used on this card was some Tombow Foam Tabs to pop up the sentiment panel.  When you do this, it adds a little extra dimension to your cards therefore adding interest.
The products I used are:
