Coloring our World with Tombow

Blog Hop_Stampendous

We’re having so much fun this week coloring with Tombow. And we have a very special treat for you today! Tombow’s amazing designer Marie Browning made a terrific tutorial of techniques for our Design Team to learn to use these terrific products. We’ve got permission from the folks at Tombow to share it with YOU! We think you’ll find these techniques as easy and dynamic as we did. If you click on this you can download the pdf to your computer to follow along with Marie.

Stampendous andTombow

If you find yourself making something cool with your Tombow markers and Stampendous stamps, we’d love to link to your creation on the web! You can tag us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Pinterest by putting #Stampendous in your post. You can upload to our Flickr Group, or email us your projects with the link in the left sidebar of our blog!

Our Design Team has some cool things to share and we’ll be giving away prizes at the end of this week, so you’ll want to comment on all the projects! We also hope you’ll like us on Facebook and any other Social Media where you find yourself! Thanks!!

TombowUSA Collaboration Week

Blog Hop_Stampendous

This week we are absolutely delighted to be working with the team at TombowUSA, creators of amazing markers and adhesives. Over the last 40 years Tombow has been expanding their flagship line of pencils to include pens, adhesives, and premium markers for all types of artists and art projects.

These markers are waterbased and blended with a blending pen, slightly different than the alcohol based brands our Design Team is used to using these days. This collaboration gave many of them the opportunity to learn something new. We always leap at that!! Marie Browning, one of Tombow’s top designers, graciously created a learning guide combining our stamps and these terrific products. We hope to share some of that guide with you later this week! Meanwhile, she also created for us our Tombow coloring guide for coloring the House-Mouse Designs® mice. You can find that HERE.

Because of the way Tombow structures their blog posts, it will be just our team for the beginning of the week, then their team will join us on Friday for the big hop! There will, of course, be prizes! And you will want to be sure to like our pages on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and Pinterest, and subscribe to and comment on our blogs. Lots of opportunities to win. Plus, of course, you need to have a US address (sorry!). We’re excited to share.

Here’s who is sharing today:

HappyHoppers® are on the Loose!

We are so blessed and grateful to be carrying the House-Mouse Designs® characters here at Stampendous. We opened our collection last Fall with the delightful mice for Halloween, Fall and Christmas. Then in our October Catalog we added the darling HappyHoppers® bunnies to the team, and these sweet rabbits have stolen our hearts! We added more of them to our line in the January Catalog, and this week our team is showing you their favorite creations with these wonderful creatures from the pen of Ellen Jareckie! So many of them are perfect for Mother’s Day, or Baby, or Father’s Day. We’re just so excited to have these options. In this stamp Hop-It reads a story to Bumble and Itty Bit! So sweet.

Let’s see what our designers have posted for the beginning of this week:

The Color Fun Continues with Faber-Castell

faber castell gelatos

Our week of playing with Faber-Castell continues today, and we are LOVING all your comments! We’d be so super grateful if you could all run over to the Stampendous Facebook Page and like us there, too! Pretty please!

Several of you have said you’d like more information on how to use the gelatos. They can be used in so many different ways! Well, we found this fantastic video on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft website! Tiffany Johnson from Iheartart made this great video for one of our favorite customers Simon Says Stamp. We love how she gets right in there with her fingers. We need to do that more.

Bunches of you were excited about the castle like we were!! Ok, we’re not headed to Germany this week, but you CAN take a virtual tour of the castle and see some super awesome magnificence. Check that out HERE.

But for those of you who just want more INSPIRATION, we’ve got that for you today as well. In the office here I took a paper mache box and painted it with Faber-Castell Chalkboard paint. This paint went on really smoothly and dried very quickly. I put two coats on to cover it all and keep it smooth. The matte finish is just gorgeous and perfect for chalk/markers/pencils….

But, of course, I had to emboss on it. Our Q170 Zinnia embossed with White Embossing Powder and VersaMark ink looked amazing. I added the H303 Have I Told You the same way. Then I used the Neutral Art Grip Pencils to color in the flower. I did the petals in white and gray and the center in the goldish color. I highlighted everything with the Metallic PITT Pens set. Then the Stamper’s BIG White Pen provided the little dots, followed up by the gold metallic PITT Pen.  Super happy with the result, may be my Mother’s Day gift… hee hee.
