100 Days of Tombow

Recently I got a package from Tombow as their centennial celebration - “100 Days of Tombow”. The  program involves working with 100 different bloggers across America to spotlight their creativity using Tombow’s products, and showcasing how “Tombow Time” is enjoyed across the nation. For each blogger that participates, Tombow will give a $100 product donation to the Council for Art Education.

I stamped the stem from Fresh Squeezed Stamp Everyday Expression set in angle and colored them with four soft colors from the color pencil set I got.  The stamp sets is available at I {heart} Papers

Here are the four colors I used.

This is the package I got. It includes Tombow's Stamp Runner Dot Pattern Adhesive, Tombow's Dual Brush Pen Set, Tombow's New Irojiten Color Dictionary Pencils.  The colors in the color pencil set is so pretty.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Just thinking of you today

Hello,  I am so excited to share my first Poppy Stamps project today.  I used this delicate and model bubble daisy border die.  The SH-peony and SH-lagoon card stock were aligned and die cut.  Then the daisy border was die cut out of white card stock, aligned and adhered. The sentiment from Memory Box was heat embossed.

Modern Leaves

Hey, everybody. Today's cards are featuring JJ'modern leaves clear photopolymer stamp set and the matching modern leaves Ellement die sets.

The first card is a stamped one layer card which is always my favorite :)  Inspiration is from this bag I saw on Pinterest.  The inks are Tsukineko Love letters, grey flannel, tuxedo black and Fresh ink honey.


The second card was a bold colored card created with the die.  I love purple color but find I don't use the color in paper crafts much.  The purple card stock is Avery Elle sugar plum card stock.  What do you think?
