Day 7 of The Avery Elle ~ Chameleon Pens Blog Hop



Hello and welcome back for another day of inspiration on the Avery Elle Blog Hop. Our team just love all the cute designs available and today Cathy shares some sweetness using What’s Up? clear stamp set.

IMG_1565Materials used:

Chameleon Color Tones Deluxe pen set, Warm Sunset (Yo3) and Bark (BR5), What’s Up? clear stamp set, Twinery Twine, Brown Button, Madison Patterned Paper, Brown and white card stock, Memento Rich Cocoa Ink and Versafine Onyx Black Ink, Perfect Layers mini.

1) Mask off the top portion of a piece of white card and then stamp the body and neck of the giraffe using Memento ink (the head will be stamped on the masked off area).

2) Remove the mask and re-position over the body and most of the neck, then ink up the stamp again and line up the neck to the existing stamped image and stamp the neck and head again (this will give the giraffe an elongated neck).

3) Stamp the sentiments along the side of the giraffe’s neck with Versafine ink.

4) Colour the Neck using Warm Sunset; infuse the brush nib of pen for around 10 seconds and work from the centre of the neck towards the outside edge.  The infuse the Bark pen for around 3 seconds and colour the spots,then change to the bullet nib and infuse for 3 seconds again and add dots to the spots.

5) Matt and layer the image onto Brown card and Madison Patterned paper using the Perfect Layers Mini.

6) Add button and twine to finish.

We love how versatile these stamps are, Cathy has used the same stamp to create this baby card too.



Materials Used:

Chameleon Color Tones Deluxe Pen Set; Purple Grape(PR4), Bubble Gum (PK3), Royal Blue (BL6), Avery Elle What’s Up? stamp set, Dotted Elle-ments die, Pink, blue, white and patterned card stock, Memento Rose Bud and Blue Lagoon ink and Versafine Onyx Black ink, pink buttons, pearls, Perfect Layers Mini and twine.

1) Die cut tag from white card and then two thinner tags from pink and blue card (by placing the die slightly off the cutting mat it is possible to only partially cut through the paper allowing you to reposition the die to extend it in length).

2) Stamp the giraffes using Memento ink and then colour using the same technique as in the first card. Stamp sentiment using Versafine ink.

3) Attach elements to layered card base and add buttons, pearls and twine to finish.

Cathy also created this cute little sky scene using the Fly By Stamp Set and Die.


The images were stamped and die cut and then colored using Chameleon Color Tone Pens Crimson Red, Royal Blue, Warm Sunset and Sky Blue.

    Thanks for sharing those cute cards!! I think the pink and blue one is my favorite. The little airplane is very cute and I love the acetate that you used. It makes the card extra special! And of course the pens. I love the colors they have and how you can make them into shades of the same color!! 🙂

    Cute, cute, cute! I just love giraffes, so these cards brought a huge smile to my heart and face! These stamps are just adorable, and being able to use just one or two pens to color them is amazing! Great cards!

    The cards are wonderful! I love the adorable giraffe and the clear front on the airplane card is a fantastic idea.

    the coloring on these cards is just awesome! When I invest in a pen set I would love it to be a set of chameleons! 😀 TFS

    Hi Cathy, I absolutely LOVE these cards you’ve made! These Avery Elle stamps are amazing ( I am a huge fan of giraffes!) and you’re colouring is amazing.
    I am probably the only crafter alive who does not have alcohol markers yet. LOL I have to say after watching the video here & Stacy’s (from Scrapbooking Made Simple), on how to use them, I am beginning to think these markers might just be the right ones for me. (As a newbie, I don’t need to figure out what three shades to work with! I like that!) Anyway, I enjoyed the hop and projects from both Chameleon AND Avery Elle! Bravo!
