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:

TOM-14034-Sticky U_R2

Our latest project comes from one of most unique and fun bloggers we have enrolled in
Sticky U!
We would like to introduce Ellen from the Chilly Dog!

ellen

Ellen lives in Tucson, Arizona and she is very passionate about crafting!  Ellen said, “I find it deeply satisfying to start with an idea for something I want to make or a material I want to use and little by little, piece by piece, stitch by stitch create a tangible, beautiful, functional design.”
She practices a variety of different art forms including beading, painting, knitting, sewing, crocheting and paper crafts.
People frequently ask her which craft is her favorite, and her response is, “I think it’s like asking a mother which child is her favorite because each one is special to me in a different way.”
We cannot help but say that Ellen can DO IT ALL :)

Check out this VERY cool Tube Art she created for Sticky U:

you’re special….by melissa cash

Hi there and happy Friday to you all.  Today I am going to share a fun technique using Tombow Dual Brush markers and stencils to create a fun watercolor background.

For this card, I started by taping a stencil onto a large piece of watercolor paper and then going over the entire stencil with embossing ink and then I removed the stencil and embossed it with black powder.   Next, I spritzed the paper with a fine mist of water and scribbled some pink, yellow and orange Tombow Dual Brush pens onto the paper and then rubbed the colors around with my finger.  If your paper has dried a bit, just give it another spritz and continue moving the color around.  

Next, I trimmed down the piece to the size that I wanted for my card and added a black and white mat.  I used Tombow Xtreme to hold the watercolor piece to the black cardstock and then some Tombow Foam Tabs to adhere the white panel to the orange embossed card.  

I stamped the sentiment with black ink onto a white scrap and popped it up with some foam tabs.  I added some die cut butterflies and sequins as a finishing touch.
