TE & Tombow Halloween Hop


Taylored Expressions and Tombow USA have partnered together for a fun-filled Halloween Hop! Some of the designers from both design teams have created projects to share with you! The TE team was generously provided with a Dual Brush Pen Set (Groovy), Fastener Tabs, MONO Adhesive Permanent and MONO Glue Stick. Thank you for your generosity, Tombow!


I made a Halloween shaker card which I call the third time's a charm. I don't make shaker cards very often, so I was a bit out of practice. My first attempt resulted in orange micro beads pouring onto the carpet. My second attempt would have been successful except that I overfilled the shaker with black star sequins and orange glitter. A clump of the filling was stuck on the monster's body, so I inserted a tiny stick in between the adhesive and paper to get them to move to the bottom. Instead of helping, I ended up ripping my globe and had to start over. Alas, here is my third attempt:


I started by stamping Candy Monster with Jet Black Archival ink onto Choice Watercolor cardstock. After letting this dry, I added color with the Tombow Dual Brush pens and used my waterbrush to spread the color around. I used the coordinating dies to cut him out. I created my "snow" globe using Shake it Up. Aside from the foam tape that I used to pop up my monster and globe, I primarily used the Tombow MONO adhesive to adhere all of my layers. It's always a pleasure to work with adhesive that really sticks! Here's a detail shot:
