Tombow and Stampendous Collaboration


Hello! It's time for an exciting hop with Stampendous and Tombow! I am super excited about this because I use Tombow products all the time. I have been featuring their products on my blog all week, so please be sure to scroll back and see what I've made. Tombow was kind enough to send the entire Stampendous team their Recycled Pencils...it's a set of 24 beautiful color. Take a look!

Colored pencils are my favorite medium, so I was thrilled to get this set. And I was not disappointed. I have been using these pencils a lot since I've gotten them, and I will be sure to keep coloring with them! Since you are joining us this weekend.....

There will be 2 prize packages that include:
Tombow Recycled Color Pencils 24 pack tin
A roll of Tombow Foam Tape
A Jumbo Perfectly Clear Handle
Your choice from Stampendous Create Fall, Create Christmas, Create Winter or Create a Poinsettia Cling Stamp set and Matching Dies
To win:
Have a US Mailing Address
“Like” TombowUSA on Facebook and Stampendous on Facebook
Follow @tombowusa and @stampendous on Instagram
Follow @tombowusa and @Stampendous
Follow Tombow USA and Stampendous on Pinterest
And comment on all the blog posts from both teams all week. Including our pre-game posts Mon-Thurs and our Weekend hop Fri-Sun.
We’ll give you until Tuesday, September 22 to get all those great comments in, then we’ll choose 2 winners on Sept 23rd.
Be sure to comment and tell us where you’re from, because our Australian Distributor The Stencil Specialists are sponsoring a prize for one friend “down under” to win a Stampendous Stamp, a Dreamweaver Stencil and a surprise goodie from their terrific stock of Stampendous merchandise!


I used the adorable (and apparently hungry!) Mint Nibbler House Mouse today. My new Tombow Recycled pencils were just perfect for coloring this guy up. The tones blend so nicely. And before you ask, I do not use any mineral spirits or other blending medium.Only the colored pencils themselves. Here's a closeup.


I used a simple sentiment from the Holiday Expressions set. The rest of the card is pretty simple, because I really wanted the mouse to be the focus and not have a lot of stuff to detract from him.



There are so many great people that are sharing projects today, so I don't want to keep you here too long. ;) But don't forget to check out my other projects this week, or even do a "Tombow" tag search for my blog. You'll see a ton of projects then! Thank you so much, Tombow, for doing this wonderful hop with us, and for the fantastical pencils. I love 'em! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

April Sparkle Blends Release Hop

Hello! Welcome back! And if you're new here, my name is Alison, and I appreciate you visiting me. Today is a big day, because Doodles Paper Playground is having their April Sparkle Blends Release Hop. This month, 6 brand new Sparkle Blends have come out to join the party, and the Doodles Paper Playground Divas are joined by several very special Guest Designers. So sit back and enjoy all of the wonderful projects we have to share with you. There are prizes to be won along the way too!
My card today features the beautiful new "Diamond" Sparkle Blend which is filled with lovely clear, opalescent clear, and moonshine sequins. There are different sizes, shapes, and styles in the Blend, so even thought it is all technically "clear," it is full of interest. This mix is perfect for the style of shaker I did today, which has a colored focal image in the background. The clear sequins sparkles, but doesn't hide the background. It just adds some magic. I used, what ver…

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha.
My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "thank…
