Altenew + Tombow Collaboration Blog Hop

by jenniferrzasa

Good morning!

Today we have something a little different for you – we are teaming up with Tombow USA to bring you an exciting and inspirational blog hop!  Of course there will also be some amazing prizes :)


“Is it possible to be cutting-edge and affordable at the same time? It is when you’ve been a leader in the industry since 1913.  At Tombow, they are passionate about offering the finest and most innovative executive pens, office, arts and crafts products on the market today. Whatever your project, from preparing documents to scrapbooking to fine art projects, you can count on Tombow for unmatched quality and design. You can now order directly from Tombow, simply click here to go to and have our products delivered right to your door. For more details about Tombow history, read About Tombow on their blog.” 


For my card, I used Tombow's Dual Brush Pens like watercolors.  I started with a piece of cold-pressed watercolor paper, then embossed the floral image from Majestic Bloom in white.  Then, I scribbled 885 Warm Red and 993 Chrome Orange Dual Brush Pens onto an acrylic block.  With a waterbrush, I picked up the color and applied it to my flower.  My sentiment is stamped from our Penned Rose set, and I finished off the card with a frame cut from Gold Mirror cardstock.


To accompany my card, I made a handmade envelope.  I first used the 885 Warm Red Dual Brush Pen to write out the name “Jennifer” onto my envelope…it was easy to get the thick and thin lines with the pen.  Then, I stamped “happy mail for” as well as a leafy accent from our From the Desk Of stamp set.  I just love how this set helps you to create fun personalized cards and gifts!



There are two $30 Tombow USA prize packs and two $30 Altenew gift certificates up for grabs. Winners will be picked randomly from the comments left on any of the blogs listed below.

Please leave your comments by Friday, June 3, 2016 at midnight EST to be eligible to win. Winners will be announced on the Altenew and Tombow USA blogs on Saturday, June 4th.

Now hop along for more inspiration! Your next stop is Jennie Garcia.
