“ALWAYS” MIXED MEDIA CARD BY DANIELLA HAYES

Hi!  I have a mixed media card to share with you today.

I used several of Tombow’s AWESOME products to make this.  I will post links to them as I show you how I used them.

First, I gathered my supplies.  In addition to the Tombow products, I used black paper from Graphic 45, A Diana Wakley stamp and a background paper I made myself.

After you stamp your image, tear around the edges and add ink to them.  I used a few different Tombow Dual Brush Pens from 2 different sets ~ Brights and Manga Shojo.  

Next I went over the marker areas with a paint brush and water, to blend the colors and give a watercolor effect.

I used theTombow Stamp Runner Dot Pattern Adhesive to adhere my papers to my card.  This Stamp runner is soooo cool!  You can use it as an adhesive runner or point it straight up and use it to “Stamp” adhesive squares exactly where you want them. 

To give my stamped paper dimension, I used Tombow Foam Tabs.  These foam pads instantly create a 3D effect to your project.

After I adhered all my papers and added some ink splatter I decided I wanted to give a watercolor effect to the flower on the front (it’s art, I’m allowed to change my mind! :) ).  I took a blue and a green Tombow Dual Brush Pen and scribbled some ink on my craft mat.  Then I picked up the ink with my Tombow Blender Pen and applied it to the flower.  You can buy a blender pen alone, but you get one free in every set of 10 Dual Brush Pens!

Finally I adhered some gems and a bow with my favorite, Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.  This glue dries clear and makes a permanent bond when used wet.  But if you use it and let it dry, it becomes repositionable adhesive!  Sweet!

Thank you for visiting today!  Please be sure to check out all the links to the Tombow products I used.

Happy New Year! By Jennie Garcia

I hope you had an amazing 2014! I can’t wait to see what the 2015 brings!

For my End of year project I made a confetti bag so you can celebrate the new year with sparkly awesome stuff!

First cut a rectangle and apply the Mono Permanent Adhesive in three sides.

 Roll it up!

 Make the bottom flat!

 Fill it with awesome sparkly goodness and make the top flat.

 I added a little stitching on the top and bottom.

 To decorate I used twine, a tag, star and a bow I made using the Xtreme Permanent Adhesive.

I hope the new year brings you many blessings!

See you next year!

 

Kisses and Wishes by Debbie Fisher

This last week of December the DT was challenged to create a project for you that was New Year’s Eve Party themed. Our family doesn’t reallyt do anything on New Year’s Eve unless it ends up being the time that we can all get together for Christmas, which actually happens to be New Year’s Day this year.

So I went to Pinterest to try to find some ideas. I wanted to make a non-alcohol project and after doing quite a bit of research, I put some ideas together to come up with a “Kisses and Wishes” gift one could give to those attending a New Year’s Eve Party, or to just give to a friend. The idea is to “kiss” the old year goodbye and to light a candle and make a “wish” for the new year.

I designed the tags that says “Kisses” and “Make a Wish” for the individual items then went “shopping” in my supplies.

When I think of celebrating the new year, silver and gold come to mind, so I looked through my stash and came up with mostly gold. I found designer papers and embellishments from My Mind’s Eye, gold glitter from the Art Institute, some gold twine I had picked up at an antique store and forget to use, a mini gold ornament, and a Christmas garland. I gathered all my goodies and got to work.

The “kisses” project was made by painting a peat pot white and then adding glitter dots using Mono Multi Liquid Glue and gold glitter. The nice thing about Mono Multi is that when it “dries” it stays tacky, so I just rubbed the glitter onto the glue and it worked perfectly. Adding more adhesive to the top of the peat pot held the garland. Add a chenille handle, mini Christmas ball, and tag and then fill with Hershey Almond Kisses (I chose the almond ones since they are covered in gold foil.

The “wishes” project is a candle in pear scent and had a gold color, so perfect for my color scheme. I added washi tape around the candle lid and then decorated with designer paper, brads, twine and a tag. The flower on top of the lid is from May Arts. I used Xtreme Adhesive to adhere the papers to the jar and Foam Tabs for the embellishment on the front of the jar. The stick pin is from Dreamweaver Stencils.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this project. This is my last post for 2014 and also my last post as a Tombow Designer.
