Stampendous and Chameleon...a Colorful Christmas Combination


All of this week, the Stampendous/Dreamweaver team are showing off a fabulous new marker system...Chameleon Pens. These are so unique, and have a bit of a learning curve, especially when you're used to working with the various alcohol marker systems on the market. Once mastered, these are a great option, as you'll see when visiting the team's posts this week. Just an aside...Chameleon people...thank you so much for providing our team with complete sets of these markers, as well as the fabulous video tutorials found HERE. Be sure to check the Stampendous blog for info regarding the prizes to be won this week, and all the rules, etc. (Hint: leaving comments is a BIG rule!Lol.)

My card today features the new House Mouse Designs® Christmas Characters, stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento, and colored and shaded with my Chameleon markers. The mice are a perfect way to begin using these markers, as they are smaller images to work with, and easier to blend using their toner marker. These work well on the Stampendous Mixed Media cardstock as well. I embellished the panel by adding drops of glue and Stampendous Micro Red Glitter to the berries, and brushing glue over the leaves, and sprinkling them with Micro Crystal Glitter.

I created a border/accent strip using the Dreamweaver Spiral Dots stencil in the double glitter technique, with both the red and glitters used above, on the Dreamweaver Double-sided Mounting Paper. For a video tutorial on this technique, please visit our Dreamweaver by Stampendous YouTube channel, at THIS LINK.

The final touch, was a panel of that same sticky paper, covered in Stampendous Micro Green Glitter, and run through my Big Shot Pro with the Dreamweaver Holly Swirls die. More glue and glitter for the berries, and the die cut was popped up off of the card with bits of foam tape. (By the way, the negative portion of that die cut panel is being saved for another occasion.)
