Video: Adhesive Resist + Tombow Blog Hop Giveaway

Happy Monday!

Today I am part of the Tombow Blog Hop with a fun giveaway (see below) and a video showing a fun adhesive resist technique. I also show a closer look at my favorite adhesive – the Stamp Runner – and how to refill it easily.

Sometimes techniques are just fun to do… especially if they allow you to use an old stand-by (adhesive) in a new way (as a resist)…

You can do adhesive resist with many types of adhesive – just give it a try. And you can use markers or inks on top. Here is a closer look…

I also show how I used the Tombow Markers to create a super fast watercolor-like background. So easy…

So here is the adhesive I love – the Stamp Runner. It is permanent, but rubs away easily if you change your mind. Oh, and it goes on like butter and never has jammed for me. Love. You can use it two ways – with a stamping action to apply squares of adhesive for more precise placement or use as a tape runner for a strip of adhesive and full coverage. All in one…


Time for a giveaway! A lucky winner will receive a prize pack with a MONO Adhesive Permanent, 52 Ft. and a Refill, a MONO Adhesive Removable and a Refill and a Dual Brush Pen Set (10 Jellybean).

For your chance to win, continue on the blog hop over at the Tombow Blog and comment along the way. The more you comment at the blogs on the hop, the more chances you have to win.

The winner will be announced 7/19/13 at 3:30pmEST on the Tombow Blog.

  1. Love the baby wipe and tombo cards, going to have to try this–plus the adhesive as resist is an amazing technique. I love the tombo adhesive too–I use it all the time.

  2. So pretty and fun! Does anyone know if you can buy the refills at a regular store instead of an online one? I try to keep my online ordering to when I can get free shipping, but if I REALLY need adhesive, then I’ll just buy a bunch of other stuff that I don’t need to make it free shipping.

  3. Love love love your card. I enjoy creating ombre backgrounds and these markers look easy to work with superb results. TFS

  4. What a neat technique, Jennifer! Thanks for the video and showcasing some products I know very little about–thanks for participating in the blog hop, too!

  5. Great tutorial – what a cool technique in using the adhesive to create a pattern. The tombow markers look really neat to use.

  6. What a great giveaway. But the best part of this post is these 2 awesome techniques. What fun for very little effort. Thanks for sharing.

  7. There are moments where you leave me with my mouth open–and today was one of those moments! I LOVED how you inked the watercolor paper with the marker and baby wipes! So easy and quick!! Totally using my distress inks for that technique…And then to see the adhesive resist–very cool!

  8. I love Tombow. i have lots of refills waiting to go in my main runner! Just saw in the stores that they have differnet kinds now too dots and removeable.. heaven! would love to win the Tombow prize pack!!!

  9. Had not thought to use adhesive for a resist technique. I love the results. I use TomBow mono adhesive all the time from your recommendation ages ago. I want to try the runner now. Thanks

  10. Gorgeous! I am a Tombow Mono Multi junkie. It is my only adhesive. I would love to try the new runner and markers. Thanks.

  11. Oh my gosh–how cool!
    A few weeks ago, I took a class at Archiver’s using the Tombow markers and loved them so much I ordered my first set and now I’m trying to figure out what to order for my second set. I love how you used the wipe to get the water colored background–I can’t wait to try that. I have also used the adhesive runner but I had no idea I could use it to get a resist look. By the way, I didn’t even realize Tombow had a blog until I saw today’s post your blog.
    Thank you–you are fabulous!

  12. Oh my gosh I love that adhesive resist technique!! And using the baby wipes gave such a smooth, soft look…pretty card!!

  13. Want to try this adhesive now, can never have too many! Great technique, thanks for sharing your talent with us!

  14. Love your card. I am always on the lookout for a great adhesive so will have to try this one. Thanks for your inspiration.

  15. thanks for demonstrating the resist technique, i am going to try this for sure. Many thanks for demonstrating how to change the refill for this runner. I have had difficulties and now look forward to a clean replacement next time.


  16. Thanks for demo on how to change cartridge-I tend to get loose ends and it makes it hard to catch the feed up once closed. Maybe I’ll have to switch to brand/design. Great resist idea too.

  17. What a fabulous technique! Thank you so much for the video…it was a real “Eureka” moment! LOVE your card too, Jennifer!

  18. Great technique. Also thanks for the tip on refilling the Stamp Runner; I was having trouble with that.

  19. I so want to add to my collection of markers!
    I really like the adhesive resist – i didn’t know that you could rub off the Stamp Runner adhesive. That is such a bonus! I’m glad I bought it!

  20. You always amaze and inspire me! Love how you softened the color with a baby wipe and the adhesive resist too! Totally selling me on that tape runner! 🙂
