Blog Hopping with Tombow and Stampendous



It’s always so much fun when I get to play with a Stampendous Blog Hop. I’m really excited about this one, because Tombow markers have been huge favorites of mine since my days working at Stampa Barbara in Costa Mesa! (I used to cringe every time someone called them Tomboy! aaaagh!)

Tombow had the good red! And I recommended them to everyone. The Brush Markers are just loaded with gorgeous ink and so much fun to use with blender pens, waterbrushes, and just about any marker techniques you’ve tried.


This week Stampendous is blogging along with the folks at Tombow and the prize package includes the Stampendous Top Hat Snowman Cling Rubber Stamp Set. I decided to color him with the Brights Tombow Dual Brush Marker set.

Stamped him with VersaFine Onyx Black for a crisp, dark black outline perfect for waterbased coloring media.

Used the blender pen and the brush tip of the markers to color and blend his various areas.


I stamped the background with a light blue pad using the turquoise marker on the one set of words so it would stand out as a greeting. Mounted it on Parakeet cardstock (Bazzill) and used May Arts baker’s twine to wrap around the top. I added some Stampendous Multi UltraFine Glitter with a Zig 2-way Glue Pen.


I’m pretty happy with my finished card. You can’t see all the sparkle here, but the snow at his feet and the highlights all have the shiny glitter… oooh!!!

Be sure to check out all the other designers posting samples today.

    The coloring on this adorable snow man is awesome! Love your card. Your right about Tombow. I have some markers that are at least 10 years old and they still work well. They were my first markers. I won’t say what my old blender looks like. LOL I think I could need to replace it.
