I have actually used Tombow markers and Tombow Multi Liquid Glue for many years. The first class I took using Tombow Markers was at the stamping store in Victoria, BC with Marie Browning, Tombow's signature designer. She showed us how to blend three graduating shades of a Tombow Marker to make a beautiful stamped card.
For our design team submission we are to post a minimum of 3 projects on our blogs, one of which should be a D.I.Y. project. My first entry is a simple holiday card using Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive, Tombow WideTrac Correction Tape, a Tombow Marker and glitter.
Next, I swiped the correction tape onto a strip of card stock and used that as a base to write Merry Christmas with a green Tombow Marker. The white correction tape makes a nice contrast to the green cardstock so that the sentiment shows clearly.
Finally, I layered up my green and gold cardstock and Graphic 45 Christmas paper using more of the Xtreme adhesive. I added little punched snowflakes with gems and a twine bow to tie it all together.
The card is now ready for a personal greeting from me.
I am including this box card post because it speaks to my interest in dimensional projects and learning new techniques. The characters on the card are from Digital Delights, a design team that I was part of for over 3 years.
I can't help but include a scrapbook project because I love, love, love making them and they show my interest in working with wonderful designer papers and fancy construction methods. They also take lots of adhesive!
|I fussy cut part of the signature sheet and layered it on top with Tombow 3D Foam Tabs.|
I used Graphic 45 Raining Cats and Dogs 8x8 pad and lots of black cardstock. I am teaching a class on how to construct this book at my local scrapbook store in January. Here are a few more pictures......
I am including this next project because it shows that I do write tutorials that people read - over 1600 of them (that is 1600 page hits for the flower tutorial post). This project has had universal appeal because we all love to put flowers on our cards and projects.

Makes these beautiful flowers .......
My blog is about my passions and my latest passion is Zentangle. I loved drawing the Zentangle method so much that I took the training and became a Certified Zentangle Teacher last November. I like to include Zentangle on all kinds of craft projects.
I used Zentangle to decorate a scrapbook......
And a tag with a Prima Doll .....

My D.I.Y. offering is a simple home decor project using a tea light, velum, Tombow Markers and Xtreme Adhesive.
First, I cut a piece of velum to 5 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches and stamped my Inkadinkado image onto velum using Tombow N25 black. Then I turn the velum over to the other side and colored the dragonflies, bees and butterflies with various Tombow Marker colors.
Next, I applied a strip of Tombow Xtreme adhesive along one short edge, Curling the velum over itself I adhered the two sides together. The Tombow Xtreme adhesive is perfect for this application because it is a very strong clear tape.
You can leave the finished tea light sleeve plain or decorate with flowers of the season.
I hope you enjoyed this post seeing a few new projects and some slightly older special projects for my Tombow Design Team entry.
Wish me luck!
