Using those Tombow Tabs…

Have you ever come across some vintage cards from days gone by?  Well I wanted to create a card today with a vintage feel.  Core’dinations Tim Holtz Shattered Kraft-Core is the perfect cardstock collection to achieve this look.  The Shattered look to the cardstock takes you back to days gone by.

Photographing the card with some vintage crochet doilies really does make this card vintage looking.

Here I have started out by using the Tombow mono glue on the back of the die cut tree allowing the glue to dry semi-transparent.  This re-positionable option is my favorite.

Next step, is sanding and inking the Shattered Cardstock which created the weathered vintage feel that I was trying to achieve for my card.

The next step was to ink and tear the Shattered cardstock.  The ink embeds into the cracked pattern of the cardstock giving the cardstock a weathered feel.

Add some twine, ribbon and rhinestones and you have found your vintage card to mail to someone who will truly hold the card in their hands and think back to a Christmas from the past.
Some days, we get side tracked and while making this card, looking for my supplies, I got side tracked.
 Look what I discovered….
A wonderful use for the Tombow adhesive tabs.
 Apply the soft side of the tab to the backside of the sponge pad.
Apply the coarse side of the tab to the back of your stamp pad.

Gently, press the sponge pad to hook the two sides of the tabs together to help organize your supplies.

Whenever you want to use your ink, your sponge is on the back of your stamp pad making it easy to attach to your blending tool.  Think of how convenient this will be whenever you need to ink a project.
