Hopping with Tombow!

Who's with me? Oh, well obviously you are  if you are here :)  
I have a layout for you today that I created using loads of Tombow and Core and some scraps of my Simple Stories patterned paper.  I was playing with my Silhouette and didn't have my blade right when I cut this sentiment. Me, being the hoarder that I am, was like, "how can I save this?"  

The sentiment on the Kraft Core didn't really stand outs so you couldn't even read it. I grabbed some of my ink and sponge and just started dabbing it into the grooves. And, voila! You can read it. 

Here it is light...I kept adding more ink...then of course adding some Tombow Stamp runner to adhere it makes it even easier!

One of the reasons (one of the many many many many many reasons) I love Core is because everything core'dinates! See the pic on the right?  That is the Chocolate Box that I used to scor and create the hatch marks in the bottom right hand corner of the layout. The pic on the left is the back of it...see how it matches my layout base perfectly? All of the lines match fuss!

I used the 6x6 Chocolate Box and then some Core Essentials.

And last but not least the TOMBOW!  I love the raised power tabs...make sticking things that need a bit more adhesive (like wood embellies) perfect!

 Okay so ready for the hop???

Imaginisce and Core

HI Everyone! If you are here today then you are hopping with Core  and Imaginisce!

I loooooove my i-Rock! I have had it for a few years now and use it a ton. My favorite is the tear drop/rain drops so that is what I used today. 
For the first card, I cut out a sun. Just traced it using a lid and then sanded it. Then I turned my card around and made the "sun lines" with a pencil and then scored. I always scor from the back so the raised images are on the front so you can sand them. So it was easy. I used Vintage Cardstock for this card.

Remember to click on the images to make them larger :)

Then I thought...why not use the negative image from my Silhouette cut? That is what I did for this card and then just did some embossing and more i rock LOVE! I used Brights Collection pack for these fun, bright colors. 

Here's the list for today:
