Clearsnap Tombow Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Tombow USA and Clearsnap Blog Hop! For this hop we swapped products that were made for each other: Tombow Adhesives and Clearsnap Foils! On this hop we will share easy, affordable and fun ways to use Clearsnap’s Designer Foils with Tombow adhesive as well as other fun ways Tombow and Clearsnap products work together. 

You probably got here from Clearsnap Blog but if you stumbled across my blog please go to Clearsnap Blog to start! Scroll down to get to the hop list to see projects likes these, sneak peeked by our team!


Now on to my project for this blog hop. I made a simple and fun summer home decor featuring Designer Foils, and Embossing Powder from Clearsnap and Tombow Xtreme AdhesiveNew Tombow Adhesive DotsMono Glue Pen, and the Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue from Tombow. 

This is a great project for summer at home that you can play with kids since it's quick and easy. First, attach the silk flowers or paper flowers with paper straws using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. The dual applicator of the Tombow Glue can be used on small or big area on your project. I use the pen tip to apply the glue on the straws. 

Write the sentiment with Mono Glue Pen on the wood veneer label. You don't need to squeeze the pen. The glue flows like a ballpoint pen and it drys very quickly. Sprinkle the Gold Embossing Powder over the sentiment and heat set it. 

To make the polka dots on the mason jar, attach Tombow Adhesive Dots on the jar randomly. Apply Designer Foils on these double-sided dots - simply press the foil onto adhesive dots and peel off the excess.

With the same method, roll Tombow Xtreme Adhesive on the wooden coaster and apply the Designer Foils to make the random stripes on it. It's quick and fun with no drying time!

I hope you enjoy my project and get a chance to create your next project with these great products.

Art Journal Creating Yourself

This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we want to see your project inspired by in the "middle of" something. Whether you craft something where your focal point is in the middle or you journal about what you’re in the middle of, let's create something "in the middle of". 

I am currently in the middle of my seasonal allergy treatment, and still have some symptoms that make me feel miserable, but I am creating some beautiful spring flowers on my art journal.  And I use a new Tim Holtz stamp in the middle of this art journal page.

The sentiment was made using Tim Holtz metal embellishment covered with Gesso and Distress Paints. 

I loved this Tim Holtz 2015 Fashion Stamp model and had to put her in the middle of the at journal page as her stage. Her wings were stamped with Prima Flowers Butterfly Wings.

There were many flowers stamped using Simon Says Stamp Artful Flowers clear stamps and Clearsnap ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink Pad.

Some beautiful flower sequins randomly added on the flowers and background.

Dare to Dream Art Journal Bird Cage

Hello, everyone, thank you for joining me for another challenge of Simon Says Stamp Monday ChallengeApples, amethyst, April flowers, and art come to mind right off the bat, but for this challenge anything A inspired would be fabulous! Will you create with Avery Elle stamps? Use some American Crafts products? Perhaps you have an art stamp that is in need of use… join us and share your "A" inspired project. 

I decided to use different "adhesives" to attache the embellishments on my art journal page.

Usually I use Gesso or Glue Runner Adhesive to adhere embellishments on my art journal page. On this page, I use Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue to attach the die cut bird cage. The stamped bird and die cut leaves were attached using 3D Foam Squares.

The cloud was cut using Simon Says Stamp Exclusive die and the sentiment was stamped using Tim Holtz Rubber stamp and Memento Black ink pad. 

The bird was colored with Distress Paints and a brush. I also embossed it with ColorBox embossing powder. Use 3D Foam Squares to attach these dimensional embellishments. 

Use Tim Holtz die to cut the bird cage, and apply Distress Paint for color and crackle paint to make the texture. Glue the bird cage with Tombow Glue.

The leaves were Distressed with Distress Paint and embossed with ColorBox Embossing Powder.
