Sweet Stamp Shop + Tombo goodness

Hello, friends:}

I'm back with a Sweet Stamp Shop creation. It's my day over on the SSS blog--so be sure to stop by there and leave some loveAND---this week, the SSS team has teamed up with Tombow for some extra fun!!! 
I love my Tombow permanent adhesive! It's so easy to use. I created these two cards {featured on my blog last Saturday HERE} using this tape runner. **I actually use this permanent adhesive for 99% of my projects! 
Tombow was kind enough to send me lots of products to test out--one of the newer items that I received were the Tombow fastener tabs. I've never heard of these before, and I'm so glad that I found them! They were the PERFECT touch to my USA matching game. I used the SSS Across the Miles stamp set for this game. I wanted to make a fun game to keep my little friends occupied with their mommy comes over to play in my studio!
This picture shows the laminated states, part of the board/game completed, and the fastener tabs (which I cut into smaller pieces to fit each state). 
Instructions: 
1. Stamp state images on several colored cardstocks. 
2. Stamp state images on gray cardstock with the sentiment. Laminate.
3. Cut out individual states (varying colors). Laminate.
4. Cut out laminated states, apply small piece of fastener tabs to back, and attach to larger laminated state piece. 

 

Also, the SSS has partnered up with Timeless Twine to offer a Sweet Sampler designed just for the shop. SO FUN! Be sure to stop by Timeless Twine to check it out!

One more thing!!!!!!! SSS has started a monthly challenge! Be sure to check out this month's challenge HERE! I hope you will play along:)

That's it for me today-- if you have some extra time, we would love for you to stop by our YouTube channel, our FB page, follow us on Twitter  and link up any creations you have made using SSS images on Flickr

And don't forget to stop by the Tombow blog for more creations and to check out their product--LOVE

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be blessed:)
