Hello and Welcome to the Tombow USA and Clearsnap Blog Hop! For this hop we swapped products that were made for each other: Tombow Adhesives and Clearsnap Foils! On this hop we will share easy, affordable and fun ways to use Clearsnap's Designer Foils with Tombow adhesive as well as other fun ways Tombow and Clearsnap products work together. “Stick” with us for the next two days to be inspired!
Foils might seem girly because of the bling factor but they can be used to add a pop of color to any project, like this boy themed card that I created:
I foiled along the spikes on the dinosaur's back as well as on top of the “dinomite” sentiment that I hand-lettered. The shimmer is an awesome effect without the mess and girliness for glitter:
I don't have alot of patience for coloring in stamped images but I love the look. On this card, I used an easy blending technique to add shading to the dinosaur without alot of fuss. See how I colored in the dinosaur image as well as how to add foil to lettering and stamping with the Tombow Glue Pen:
I can't wait to try this technique on more masculine cards – I bet the foil would look great on car and tool themed cards as well. Think Father's Day!
