Here are the steps for the DoodleDab Candles and the Dual Brush Pen colors. You can, of course, choose to make any color candle with the 96 different colors in the Dual Brush Pen palette! You will also need the Blending Kit  to make the two toned DoodleDab teardrop strokes. Here are the card samples I made with the DoodleDabs! I did them on shiny photo paper for bright cards. Then the panels were attached to the colored card blanks using Dot Stamp Runner Adhesive and the small sentiment panels are attached using Foam Tabs for a dimensional look. Don’t forget to add candles to the envelope! So there you have it, very simple and quick cards using Tombow products! Get busy and create your own card for the challenge! Voting will start MONDAY, AUGUST 25 and will end WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27!

Happy, happy Monday everyone!
This month it is my turn to host the challenge here on the Tombow blog and since it is my birthday month (yes, I am celebrating ALL month) I am challenging each and every one of you to create a “BIRTHDAY” themed card/project.
Each day this week one of the AMAZING Tombow designers will be sharing a “BIRTHDAY” themed card/project with you.  Be sure to check back each day and check out their creations.
I stamped the RI Gumball Machine #9702 in black ink and colored it in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens Jellybean Set.  Next I added the RI Gumballs #9710-I and colored them in.  I added some Glossy Accents and Microfine Warm Diamond Glitter to a few of the gumballs.  They look yummy! I added the gumball machine to the card using Tombow Foam Tabs.  Tombow Xtreme Adhesive was used to adhere each of the layers together.

I stamped the RI Have A Ball #9703-F onto a scrap of white cardstock and added it to the side of the gumball machine.  Next, I tied a twine bow around the machine and added some Stardust pen to the silver parts of the gumball machine.

Now, I challenge you to play along, you could win this awesome prize pack if you do!


Use the InLInkz below to link up your “BIRTHDAY” themed card/project.  We can’t wait to see your amazing creations!

Blog Hop with Walnut Hollow DAY 1

We are THRILLED to announce that we are blog hopping with
WALNUT HOLLOW this week!

Facebook-Post (2)

For over forty years, Walnut Hollow  has been dedicated to bringing their customers the absolute best in fine wood surfaces, tools and accessories for the craft and hobby industry.
Walnut Hollow® began as a small family-owned business in Dodgeville, WI. One day, Walnut Hollow founder, Dave Ladd, had an idea after watching his wife, Nancy, create unique decoupage projects from crosscut pieces of wood taken from the family tree farm. This idea led Mr. Ladd to develop our very first product line, Walnut Country Rounds (which he debuted at the 1972 Hobby Industry of America show in Chicago, IL).
Tombow LOVES Walnut Hollow. From the TOP-Notch products to the TOP-Notch people, their quality is one in a million.

For this week’s hop we will have sneak peeks on the Tombow USA Blog and we will also have links to the Walnut Hollow Projects.

Today’s Sneak Peeks come from Debbie Fisher and Melissa Cash:
