All week long Whimsy Stamps and Tombow will be joining forces to bring you some amazing inspiration combining products from these great companies!  Be sure to visit both companies’ blogs each day this week to see all of the incredible projects the designers have created AND to enter the giveaways!

It's Andrea with you for day 5 of this fun collaboration between Whimsy Stamps and Tombow.  I hope you've enjoyed this week as much as the designers have!  I, for one, have been blown away by all of the awesome projects this week!  Hopefully, I'll inspire you today as I have two cards to share with you.

My first card features the new Slimline Windows Die and the Penguin Farts and Penguin Poop stamp sets.  I first stamped those fun penguins with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with the new ABT PRO Markers from Tombow.  These markers are alcohol-based like Copics, and I was really impressed with how well they blend and how vivid the colors are.  After coloring the penguins, I cut them out (There are coordinating dies for Penguin Farts).

ABT PRO Markers: PN65, PN75, PN95, PN55, P905, P925, P933, P985, P991,
P491, P451, P452, P476, P555 

I created a slimline cardbase (3.5" x 8.5") from white cardstock and die-cut the Slimline Windows Die from black cardstock.  I also die-cut some Chilly Designer Papers with the Slimline Windows Die.  Onto the solid papers, I white heat-embossed sentiments from both stamp sets.  After adhering the black frame to my card, I inlaid the smaller die-cuts.


I adhered my colored images to my card with foam tape.  I added highlights with a white gel pen and brushed clear sparkle over the ice and ice cream.  I coated the penguins' eyes with Glossy Accents and adhered a few snowflake sequins from the Snow Crystals Sparkletz sequin mix.


For my second card, I created a snowy scene with the Glitter Globe set and the Slimline Waves Die.
I first stamped those cute images from Glitter Globe with Versafine Onyx Black ink and then watercolored them with Tombow Dual Brush Pens.  Once my images were dry, I die-cut them with the coordinating dies and added details with a white gel pen.

Tombow Dual Brush Pens: 
Trees - 173, 177, 969
Snowman - 291, 933, 565, N25, N95, 743
Penguin - N25, 933, 025, 845, 847, N95, 245, 249
Deer - 977, N95, 969, 803


I die-cut the Slimline Waves Die from white cardstock and trimmed a background panel the same dimensions of the frame.  I retained the negative pieces from the die-cut to create my snowy hills.  I placed each hill behind where I wanted it in my frame and used a pencil to mark the portion that extended below the window, trimming off the excess with scissors.  To create dimension between the die-cut hills and my background panel, I added Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  I inked up the top of the background with Mermaid Lagoon for the sky.


I attached the trimmed-down hills to the back of my frame with liquid adhesive.  To account for the extra dimension of the cardstock hills, I die-cut a second frame, removed the inside slopes with scissors, and adhered it to the back of my original frame.  After adhering my background to a card with foam tape, I affixed my colored images.  I stamped a sentiment from Glitter Globe with Versafine Onyx Black ink, die-cut it with the Quick Strips Dies, and popped it onto my card with foam tape.  For some sparkle I brushed clear sparkle over the hills and added snowflakes die-cut from glitter cardstock with the Shaker Maker Glitter Globe Dies.

I decided to change things up a bit and make an all seasons type of card.  I used the Tombow Tropical Dual Brush Pen Art Markers to color these beautiful flowers from the Beaucoup Bouquet Clear Stamps Set.  I love the bold and vibrant coverage that these markers provide. I heat embossed my images with Fine Detail Black Embossing Powder onto a sheet of Ranger White Watercolor Paper.  I used a watercolor brush to move around my ink to add some subtle shading.


I then cut my images and set them aside to work on my background.  For my background, I blended some aqua watercolor with a large paintbrush.  I splattered this blend with some diluted Opaque White Paint as well as some diluted green watercolor paint for added interest.


Next, I heat embossed my sentiment from the Bunny Balloons 2 Clear Stamps Set onto a sheet of Black Card Stock.  Once set, I then used a paper trimmer to trim this piece down to size.  I added my flowers to the front of my card with some liquid adhesive to those that were in the background, and used 3D Foam Adhesive Squares for the ones that I wanted to pop up slightly in the foreground.

Whimsy Stamps and Tombow Collaboration – Day 3

Tombow's Dual Brush Water-based markers were one of my very first craft purchases many years ago and I really enjoy using them when I water-color my images.  The colors are so very vivid!  They have a new product: ABT Pro Alchohol based pens.  They also have dual brushes and are available in color-way sets of 5 markers that are meant to blend together!

In this project, I have use the water-based Tombow Markers as well as the Purple Toned ABT Pro markers to color in this Stained Glass Ornaments image.  I first embossed the rubber stamp used some gold embossing powder onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock.  Then, I spent a lovely pocket of time water-coloring each of the ornaments.  Once completed and dry, I added some details with a gold gel pen.  I trimmed down my paper, added it to an A2-sized card-base with a gold card-stock mat.

To create the sentiment I used more of the gold card-stock and die-cut it using the Christmas Large Word Die. It was the perfect way to finish off this card!

Whimsy Stamps and Tombow Collaboration - Day 3, Post 1

All week long Whimsy Stamps and Tombow will be joining forces to bring you some amazing inspiration combining products from these great companies! Be sure to visit both companies’ blogs each day this week to see all of the incredible projects the designers have created AND to enter the giveaways! 

Hello Everyone, Iris here today with my creations for the Whimsy Stamps and Tombow collaboration. For my first card I used the adorable Winter Wonderland clear stamp set illustrated by Krista Heij-Barber and the Slimline Marquee die.

I inked the background using Distress Oxide Inks in different blue tones and sprinkled on water and some white acrylic paint for a snow effect. The snowflakes and sentiment in the middle window were stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  



 I used several different media to color my images therefore I stamped the images with a hybrid ink onto white mixed media paper. To color the snowmen I used Tombow Dual Brush Pens, Tombow ABT Pro Alcohol Markers - Orange Tones and Tombow Colored Pencils 1500 Series
I love to use different media when I color images and these markers and pencils from Tombow worked all very well together and it was a joy to color these adorable images from Whimsy Stamps.



Here is a closer look on the images. I used the markers to lay down the base colors and went over it with the pencils to add some more depth and details.


 For my second card I used the Rounded Rectangles dies, Forest Majesty dies and the Winter Wonderland clear stamp set again.

The background on this card is blue glitter paper and the window was cut out using the Rounded Rectangles dies


 I used the Tombow ABT Pro Alcohol Markers - Orange Tones to color the Snowmans nose, scarf and gloves. For everythign else (including the birch trees in the background) I used the Tombow Colored Pencils 1500 Series.
