Die-Namites Blog Hopping With Tombow

Hello and Welcome to the Tombow USA and Die-Namites Blog Hop!

You probably got here from Jennie Garciabut if you stumbled across my blog go the Tombow USA Blog to start!

For my card I used many products from Tombow adhesives.  I used the Extreme Permanent Adhesive, Adhesive dots, 3D Foam Tabs and the Aqua Mono Liquid Glue.  If you have a tough time deciding with adhesives to use on your project Tombow is top of the line.  Some adhesives give some wear and tear but even after a long time it holds up.  Here is a photo of the products I used.

For the rest of my card I used the Small Ivy die and Butterfly Cascade from Die-Namites.  I actually used the negative cut of the Butterfly Cascade for my card.  Die-Namites have a wide vareity of dies that will meet your every demand so be sure to check them out. 


The papers are from Doodlebug Design 6x6 paper pad - Flower Box.  The mesh, twigs and butterfly are from my local dollar store.  I used a Promarker from Letraset to color the mesh green.  The flower is a mixture.  The large one is from Prima and the small one is from I Am Roses.

To win, visit and comment on the participating blog posts. You have until April 28 at 11:59 EST to comment. A winner will be picked randomly and announced on April 29 2015.

April Sketch Challenge At The Die-Namites Challenge Blog

Hi Everyone,
It's Tina today showing you another creation using the Die~Namites April Sketch Challenge.

I am so happy with the results. With Spring finally here I wanted to make an earthy card and once that was done I knew it was for my mother for Mother's Day. Can you believe it will be next month?

I used the "Small Ivy" die.

Love the effect it created around my flowers. I cut it into two parts using it around the flowers. The burlap sack I had was from a package from Coffee Beans. I am so happy I kept that. I used sand paper and a crumper to create a woodsy paper background. The flowers are a mixture of the Prima and I Am Roses. The stems are from the local dollar store. They come in handy sometimes. I used Adirondack Color Wash spray because I needed a big orange flower.

Here are the results. TFL and have a wonderful weekend.

Spring Watercan for Die-Namites

Hi Everyone,
It's Tina again. First I want to wish everyone Happy Holidays! It's Easter and Passover at the same time this year.

Today I am super excited to show you my card using "Spring Watercan".  Be sure to check out the Die-Namites Blog.  There is always lots of inspiration and wonderful examples on how to use the dies.  If you haven't used a Die-Namites die then you should definately get them.  It's precise cutting the first time and the paper doesn't get stuck in the die.

It is a die that can used for any type of card or project. I curled the flowers a bit so it looks like they are popping out a bit. For my card I went all Prima. From the papers to the flower and bling. The paper is Optimist 6x6. The flower is Symphony Blend Amoroso Pink. The bling is Say It In Crystals. Lastly my favorite butterlies are from the local dollar store. TFL!
