It’s Friend Friday and Time To Party

mistiindigo promo

Yay it is Friend Friday and the summer has begun, so why not have a party with two of our friends; My Sweet Petunia and Indigo Blu!

Each Friday for the remainder of this month we will be joining our friends to celebrate great stamping so make sure you hop on over to their blogs at the end of this post to see what their team have created and to enter MISTI’s competition to win a MISTI or Mini MISTI.

Now before we share our projects lets tell you a little more about Chameleon and our friends, Misti is short for the Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented and having used many stamping aids this really is the bee’s knees when it comes to getting perfect results, you can learn a little more about it in this video.

Indigo Blu is a “quintessentially English stamp company” owned by Kay Halliwell-Sutton, Kay creates the most beautiful artwork for her range of stamps which are suitable for cardmakers, scrapbookers and mixed media artists.

Chameleon Pens are an innovative alcohol marker system where you can do more with less, each pen gives around ten shades of a tone, this allows you to get smooth seamless blends with individual pens, you can see how they work here

As we are having a party the first thing we need to organise is our party bags, so Cathy has repurposed a clothes shop bag for just for the occasion.

Now we need a card, Monica has created this cool Mandala design with that great sentiment and we are creating the perfect projects to party, do you agree?


Here you can see how easy it is for Monica to use the MISTI with Indigo Blu stamps.

    Thanks for the demonstration of the Misti, and I am anxious to find out more about the pens. Maybe I will be lucky enough to win them!!!

      Hi Martha, we have lots of videos on chameleon where you can learn more about what the pens can do.

  3. Karen F.

    Great projects and tutoria as well as the Misti video. I am excited for a chance to win the Chameleon Pen starter pack. I’d love to try both projects and winning the pens and Misti would let me do this. Thanks for the opportunity.

  4. Cindy Miller

    Don’t know which one I’m more excited about, The MISTI or the Chameleon pens, fantastic products!!

  5. Debbie Anemaet

    What a stunning card and bag! And these pens are VERY exciting! Thanks so much for sharing with us and being a part of this great hop.

  6. Sandra Bannert

    I love this party bag! The butterfly could be a flower *-*!!! Never tried your pens, so would be cool to win them 🙂 (btw I can’t comment on the post from Jeanne Streiff – do you know why?) Thanks for sharing this inspiration!

  8. Ana Katsanes

    What awesome projects! Love my Misti. Would love to win a set of pens!! Thank you for sharing such cool ideas.

  9. Mary Holshouser

    The mandala is beautiful but I especially love the bag
    with the butterfly. He is colored so wonderfully
    and is set of so well by the black and white.
    thanks for an amazing giveaway.
    I signed up for the newsletter.

  10. Trina P.

    Great projects. The coloring on both bag and card looks great. These markers are new to me and the different shades you can get with one marker is so interesting.

  11. Vicenta Ghylin

    Great projects. Thank you for being part of this giveaway. I have Chameleon pens and would love to win the new facial tones pen set and to win a Mini Misti.

  12. Cynthia Tuttle

    I really love the Butterfly Bag, but I would turn it into an art piece! It is way too pretty to just be used as a gift bag!

  13. Marsha S.

    Wonderful projects! Thanks for the tutorial! I sure could use both gifts as I don’t have a Misti or any Chameleon pens!

  14. Julie Pike

    I love the Mandela card! I’ve been wanting to try the Chameleon pens so here’s hoping I’m a lucky winner!

  15. Jane Whelan

    I have a 22 colour toning kit for my sons 21st Birthday next week. He loves drawing Manga and would love to be able to add some additional colours to his set.

  16. Denise Bryant

    Beautiful gift bag! I love the butterfly and that pop of bold color that matches the tissue paper!

  17. Ericka O

    What super colors. Such gorgeous use of the pens on the mandala, and using the Misti was a precise way of stamping. Your vids were very informative on how to use them. Thanks for introducing me to the Misti, Indigoblu, and your pens.

  18. Sandy Lee

    Don’t wait for the perfect moment, take the moment and make it perfect. What a grand quote on such a grand bag. The Mandala card is colored beautifully. The MISTI appears to be the perfect tool to use in card making and other crafts. Your pens, from all the videos I watched, are simple to use, and totally different from all else on market. Great job.

  19. Julie

    Great tutorial for the MISTI. Love the mandala card, such pretty colors. I am especially smitten with that re-purposed shopping bag; it is gorgeous!

  20. Lisa Lara

    I am a Copic user and am very intrigued by Chameleon markers. I always love the effect like in your Mandala card, I love that! Gorgeous bag. Love the striking coloring on the butterfly!

    1. Cathy Andronicou Post author

      Lisa I was a devout Copic fan before I discovered Chameleons, now I use these almost exclusively, although they do work with Copics too and can blend with them.

  21. Karen P

    Lydia thanks for sharing your card with the Cameleon Markers. They look awesome. And thanks for the SKINNY on viruses.

  22. Catherine

    Wow just wow!! Beautiful ideas to be able to make these with such amazing products. Would love to win some 🙂

  23. Parkers

    Watched the MISTI video and how the Chameleon pens work–all the vids. Love the card colors and how the MISTI helped in the process. Wonderful time to learn about both products. Thank you.

  24. JoAnne

    I just now first saw these awesome pens in action.. Thanks for the video Lydia. I am excited to try these pens. And of course would LOVE to win a MISTI as well.

  25. Mary

    Wow, I’m simply blown away at the projects! I just received my Chameleon pens and had no idea all the other things, Misti etc, existed. Very cool device and of course you all make it look really easy. The possibilities are endless.

  26. Bonnie

    I first saw an ad for the Chameleon pens a few weeks ago and fell in love immediately. I would love to win the 5 pen starter pack! I really enjoyed the MISTI video and tutorial and found the directions straight forward and easy to follow. Thank you so much for the chance to win the starter set!!!

  27. Bonnie Mustain

    Oh my goodness, that gift bag is gorgeous, I love it!! I am thinking these markers are a must have 😉

  28. barb macaskill

    These are gorgeous! Especially the Butterfly bag!! BRILLIANT!! LOVE your pens and would be over the moon if I won a MISTI! I lost the use of 2 fingers and my thumb on my dominant hand in 2013 and can’t stamp very good since! This would truly be a game changer for me and allow me to get back to something I love to do! Thanks for the inspiration and chance to win some goodies!

  29. Toni

    Love the ideas! Would love to try these pens. This is the first time I have seen these pens! Where have I been?

    My boyfriend love his Cameleon and now I love it too! I’m obsessed with them and win my own set, will be so nice and my boyfriend will be happy top

  31. Deborah Smart

    I love to repurpose bags to make pretty gifts – and this one is stunning! I’d love to win a set of Chameleon markers, and learn how to use them . Thanks for the chance to win! 🙂

  32. Cat

    Totally awesome! I recently bought a pack and need to get them out and try to use! Totally inspiring projects from all on the hop too!

    Very pretty card and live the butterfly on the shopping bag! I’ve had a set of Chameleon pens for about a year now and LOVE them! Thanks for the chance to win a prize!
