1. Stamp the images onto Neenah white card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad.
2. Color the images using the following color pen and times for infusion:
– branch – Use the Green Meadow – YG3 marker and infuse it for about 7 seconds for each leaf. For the stem use the Bark BR5 marker and infuse it for about 3 seconds and then color the branch.
– parrot- Use the following pens to color the parrot: Aqua Marine BG4, Summer Sun YL2, Seville Orange OG4, and Green Meadow YG3. Infuse the pens for about 3-5 seconds with the toning medium and color the parrot.
3. After you have colored your elements fussy cut them using paper snips, or if you have the coordinating dies, you can use them.
4. Using the Blue Print die cut the 2 layers from white card stock. Adhere the parrot and the branch and then stamp the sentiment. Adhere the seqins
5. Adhere the image panel onto the faux stitched layer and then adhere the whole new panel onto Whisper white thick card stock card base ( 4 1/4″x11 folded in half).


Supplies:- Chameleon Pens Deluxe Set, Neenah White card stock, Stampin’ Up! Whisper White thick card stock, Stampin’ Up! Neutrals dsp stack, Stampin’ Up! sequins. Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad.


1. Stamp images on Neenah white card stock.
2. Color the images using the following pens and infusing times:
-Large hibiscus flower: Use Seville Orange OG4 and infuse the pen for about 10-12 seconds for each leaf. Use the Summer Sun YL2 for the center of the flower infusing it with the toning medium for only 2-3 seconds.
-Small hibiscus flower: Use the Summer Sun YL2 pen for the flower leaves, infusing for 3-5 seconds each time. For the middle use the Seville Orange OG4 without infusing it.
– Leaves: Use the Spring Meadow YG3 pen for the leaves. For the large leaves infuse the pen with toning medium for 10-13 seconds and for the smaller ones for about 7 seconds.
3. Fussy cut the images using paper snips, or you can use the coordinating dies if you have them (I don’t, so I used my paper snips).
4. Cut your card base from Whisper White thick card stock and fold it in half. Using your paper trimmer “Chop” the bottom right corner.
5. Adhere a piece of patterned paper on the back of the chopped corner, so it makes the card “whole” again.

    I am so excited to see all of the wonderful projects. I have not yet mastered the blending but am still trying. My set of pens is small basic one and I have promised myself a shopping spree to enlarge my supply. The tutorials are priceless and the pictures of the cards wake up my creative (such as it is!) to keeping stamping, coloring and be proud of the result.

    Love all the fabby creations. Ilina’s wonky layout is one of my current favorite trends, Annette’s cutie-patootie awesome colored monkeys make me smile, Cathy’s pink layered posy adds some great dimension against the dragonfly background, Isha’s simple yet perfectly colored monkey card is well, um…perfect with the AE Neutrals stripe, Monica’s addition of the Red “stripe” mat around the shark circle is a perfectly painful touch for the “chomp” effect, Ekaterina’s softly colored posies are tucked so sweetly under the sentiment strap, and Kasia perfectly positions those leafy stamp posies around her peek-a-boo sentiment window. Love each and every project!

  21. Jenna

    I love all of these cards. The blending is gorgeous. I don’t think I could ever achieve this kind of blending with my Copics. I need to get me some of these pens. Thanks for all of your inspiration. Good luck to all the blog hoppers.

  22. c

    Fabulous set of cards, and the colouring is sooooo inspiring! Thank you, again, for sharing fusing times! I would more than welcome the opportunity to invite new pens into my collection, as I’m quite loving them!

  23. TracyM #6773

  24. Lisaerica

    I love these, how neat. I think the chart takes the guessing game out, which actually gives us more time to craft and create. It really helps us newbies like me. Thanks for inspiring and the chance to win.
