Friend Friday Continues with DCWV


We are so excited to be back again this Friday to play with our paper supplies from our friends at DCWV. If you haven’t come across them before they offer a vast range of paper stacks in plain and patterned designs as well as 3D project pads, cards to embellish and enhance specialist materials and stationary….and more!  What could be better than that, oh yes of course if you combine their wonderful designs with Chameleon pens amazing things happen, you can see what both teams have created with todays posts or check out last weeks designs here.

Monica, Olesya and Ilina join us today, so feast your eyes on all they have to offer.

Monica said “Summer is finished; what a better way to extend it with a colored floral card?”, she used Chameleon pens Warm Sunset, Spring Meadow, and Purple Grape together with the DCWV Color & Create 6×8 Florals Color Me pad.

If you would like to recreate this with-love-card-project you can download the full instructions here.


Olesya has created her magic using DCWV’s Happy Day  paper collection and  Color & Create Floral pad.

Olesya said “I was dreaming for a long time to create something pretty about our Wedding day because I still don’t have even a wedding album ( we have been married for 4 years already).The cobbler always wears the worst shoes 🙂  There’s a beautiful DCVW paper collection called Happy Day. It’s just what I wanted it to be, very pretty and very inspiring.”

We love the use of the natural wood with the papers, it really sets off the beautiful wedding photo, you can download the instructions to create your own wood-slice-panel picture here.


But wait we have more Olesya couldn’t resist creating another project.

Olesya  said was inspired to create this card because “On the 5th of October we celebrate the Teacher’s Day all over our country. So I decided to make a card for my college teacher. Chalk cardstock by DCVW fitted here perfectly as well as the Chameleon pens.”

You can download the instructions to Olesya’s Life you love card here.


Ilina has a kinetic card to share with this super cute bear using the DCWV Happy Day stack.

    Thanks for all the inspiration. Lovely depth of colours with your pens Chameleon. I’m very impressed. Would love to win some to try as I’ve never seen a live demonstration where I could play with them so I’ve never used any. xxx

    These projects are amazing! I really, really love those pens. They make shading totally easy and not at all intimidating (unlike traditional markers). Of course, pairing them with DCWV products really makes it the best of all worlds!
