Core'dinations + Tombow Blog Hop!

Good Morning!

I hope you are ready from some Fun Ideas and Great Prizes this week from Tombow and Core’dinations.  If you're here from Melissa's Blog, then you’re in the right place, if not then you may want to start at the beginning. 
I love my Tombow adhesives and my favorite by far is the Mono Multi Liquid Glue.  I use that glue for gluing all of my embellishments, especially wood veneers and sequins.  I haven't had one fall off, ever!

My project for today:
I wanted to create an ombre look with my Core card stock, so I chose three different yellow colors.  The darkest is from the Darks Collection pad, the middle one is from Brights Collection pad, and the lightest is from the Pastels paper pad.  I embossed each of the 1 inch circles with the Darice Circles embossing folder and sanded them with the Sand It Gadget.

I used some of the patterned paper and embellishments from the Authentique Be(You)tiful Collection.  To adhere all of the circles, I used the Tombow Stamp Runner.  For the sequins and the wood veneers, I adhered them with the Mono Multi Liquid Glue.  Lastly, I used the 3D Foam Tabs to adhere the arrow card stock shape.

And a look at what is up for grabs from Core (win this by commenting on the Core blogs.) 
Subject to availability. Winner will be notified if we are out of stock of anything. 

And from Tombow you can win (win this by commenting on Tombow blog and designer blogs) Tombow prize will include: 
· New Power Tabs 
 · New Foam Tabs 
· New Fastener Tabs 
 · Mono Glue Pen

Your next stop on the hop is the super-talented Suzanna!

Have a great day!
~Tracy

  17. What a delightful layout Tracy!!!

    I love circles and LOVE what you have done with your embossed and punched ombre circles!!!

    I haven't tried the Mono Multi Liquid Glue {{{yet}}} but prefer using liquid adhesives as they allow you to move things around a bit before they are stuck in place :)
