Welcome to the Tombow + Waffle Flower Crafts blog hop. The teams from each of these companies have come together today to share some inspiration using Waffle Flower and Tombow products. I am super excited to share a couple of projects that I made.
First up- the sticky stuff- and I am talking about these Adhesive Dots from Tombow!
So my original thought was to add glitter or even gold embossing powder to these Adhesive Dots, but I really liked the way they looked in their natural form. My challenge was to deactivate the sticky without messing with the color too much.
Clear embossing powder to the rescue! Since things were about to get seriously sticky, I stamped my sentiment first. The sentiment is from the Congrats Stamp Set. After placing the Adhesive Dots on the card in my desired pattern, I carefully peeled off the remaining plastic sheet and sprinkled the card with clear embossing powder. I zapped it with the heat gun and voila- fun confetti using Adhesive Dots!
Next up, something a little more dreamy...
For this card, I used Tombow Dual Brush Markers to create the dreamy background on watercolor card stock. To create the blended background, I first scribbled color onto an acrylic stamp block, picked up the pigment with a baby wipe and rubbed the wipe onto the card stock. I learned the hard way, to only do one color at a time and allow the card stock to completely dry before moving onto next steps.
I die cut the Doily Circle Die and glued it to the background using Tombow's Multi Liquid Glue. Liquid glue is perfect for detailed die cuts and the fine tip applicator allowed me to put just the right amount of adhesive onto the die cut.
I stamped and heat embossed the feathers from the Feather More stamp set and the sentiment is from the Doily Circle Stamp Set.
Now, you can't have a hop without prizes, so Waffle Flower is giving away a Doily Square Die and Doily Square Stamp Set. Tombow is giving away a set of Bright Dual Brush Pens, the Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue, Tombow Adhesive Dots and Tombow Foam Tape.
