Step 1. Cut your cardstock to fit on your card.
Step 2. Start with your largest stamp design and stamp it randomly around your cardstock using permanent black ink.
I stamped the pineapple and the shark around on my cardstock.
Step 3. Next take your smaller stamps and fill in the areas between the larger stamped design.
You can make it a little more full like my shark card or leave a little more white space like my pineapple card.
For my pineapple card I actually used some of the bubbles from the Duh-nuh stamp set!
Step 4. Next color in your stamped design using Dual Brush Pens! For tips on coloring in stamped designs with these markers, check out this post.

Hey y’all, I have a mew tutorial up on the Tombow blog today!
This week those of us on the Tombow design team are creating projects showing ways to use the Tombow Blending Palette, so I’m showing you how to use the blending palette 2 different ways to easily blend Dual Brush Pens.

So, that’s how I prep my cards, how do you do it?
This time around I didn’t use any patterned papers and created some fun stamped cards instead.
Also, I have found the easiest way to make glitter dots ever!
Tombow makes a product called Adhesive Dots, which are double sided permanent adhesive dots. I’ve found that you can use them as embellishments as well as adhesive. Just stick them on your page, remove the liner and sprinkle glitter over top!
The dots already come in bright colors, so I actually just sprinkled clear/white glitter over them.
Do you make your cards ahead of time and have a stash like me? Or do you make them on an as-needed basis?

Since designing them this past weekend, I’ve been incorporating some of the elements into my daily Christmas cards.
That last card above, I didn’t bother cutting out the designs. I just cut the whole page down to 4″x5.25″ to fit on my card.
So, will you be using these on any Christmas cards? If you do, I’d love to see pictures! Share links below, or use the hashtag #30daysofchristmascards or #punkprojects
I’d love to see your handmade Christmas cards if you want to join in!
For this technique you’ll need water based markers. What I used, and recommend, are Tombow’s Dual Brush Pens. I used the set of secondary colors and they blended really nicely.
I used this technique to color in the stamped house below. If you want to see how then just keep reading. 🙂
Supplies: Water Based Markers, Craft Mat or Palette, Paint Brush, Water
1. Stamp your image onto watercolor paper. This is optional, but if you’re coloring a stamped image like me, go ahead and stamp it. 🙂
If you’re wondering, this house stamp is by Paper Wings Productions.
2. Color with one of your markers onto a craft mat. It doesn’t have to be a craft mat, but you need a non stick surface that the ink won’t stick to. Try a craft mat, freezer paper, a palette, or an acrylic block.
3. Dip your paintbrush in a small dish of water to moisten it, then rub it over the ink to pick it up.
4. Use your paint brush and color in your image, as you would with normal watercolors.
5. Repeat steps 2-4 with multiple colors!
What do you think? Is this something you’ve done?
I always make my own Christmas cards. I love the personal touch and, also, I just like to make cards and play with paper and ink.
I’ll be making one Christmas card a day in November. Since it’s card making, I’m not going to limit myself to any prompts besides just the Christmas theme.
If you want a fun challenge, I’d love for you to join me!
You don’t have to do Christmas cards if you don’t want to. You can just do hello or birthday cards, or if you don’t celebrate Christmas, just do holiday cards in general.
Do you hand make your Christmas cards?
Will you be joining in?
For this next page, I made a list of “things I love”. The background is made from embossed washi tape (you’ll see a post on that soon!!), with a bit of gelatos and stitching.
I make and send a lot of cards so I’m always making extra hello and thank you cards. Here’s one I made recently using some new supplies I got.
Here is my card for the challenge:
I used the home tweet home stamp set, holiday tags stamp set, build a scene stamp set, and the hanging stars stamp set on this card, then colored my scene with copic and spectrum noir markers.
It’s sort of become a personal goal/challenge to see how many different scenes I can create with this adorable house stamp. So far I’ve done Halloween, Fall, Christmas and this winter scene. I seriously love this house stamp.
