Stampendous Stamps and Chameleon Pens

So as a designer and teacher, this is the time of year where we are all chomping at the bit, waiting for new product to arrive!  I have been so inspired by all the wonderful products coming out this year.

As a Sales Representative, I've been able to try products that I necessarily wouldn't try and I'm so happy I have!  I've always admired Stampendous Stamps but haven't had a lot of chances to play with them.  I am so excited to be working with this fantastic company.  The people are so helpful and supportive on both the Sales side and the education side.
Chameleon Pens is one I would have walked right by as I have always been a "Copic" girl.  Now don't worry I still LOVE my copics, but after trying the Chameleon Pens at CHA I was intrigued.  As a Sales Rep for them, I needed to believe in the product I was selling so I spent a few hours playing with them at home with the Stampendous Stamps.  What a match made in heaven.
I was given the brand new Fran Seiford Flower Stamps and the Die Set to go along with it.  I then used the Chameleon Pens to color the flowers and wow did they turn out beautiful.  Now, I was never a Copic master of blending etc, so blending with the Chameleons was so easy and worked so well that I was not intimidated or worried about the outcome.  The pens are like butter and blending is so easy, it really makes the flowers look like watercolor.  I was able to get all these tones out of a set of 22 markers.  They are amazing.  Here are two samples of the cards I'll be offering as a class very soon!  I hope I can show you in person how fun these pens can be right along side your copic markers.  I think they both can have a place in your stash!
Look for these stamps and pens at your local scrapbook store, contact me to have them carry these!

  1. I love these projects. Great job. I heard of these Chameleons poems earlier today for the first time. I have Copics but now I want these as well.
