Stampendous and Chameleon Final Hop!

Today is the final day of the Stampendous - Chameleon Blog Hop! The Stampendous Design Team has been sharing the designs from the July 2015 Stampendous Catalog with you this week! Over the next several weeks, our weekly themes will spotlight different parts of the catalog. This week our theme has been  "Christmas in July". There are so many beautiful designs to choose from, it was hard to choose just five for this week!

Our designs were colored with the fabulous Chameleon markers, so we've been having a Blog Hop this week too! You won't want to miss a day of the fun, so be sure to go back and check out the days you missed! And, of course, there are PRIZES! A huge thank you to Chameleon for providing each design team member a complete set of their great markers!




Chameleon™ Art Products is a company determined to change the way you think about marker pens. They pride themselves on having developed real innovation that enhances your ability to maximize your creativity. Their markers bring color control and simplicity to your art, and you can create stunning 3D effects, smooth transitions, highlights, and shading gradations all with one pen.



When you combine this simple coloring versatility with Stampendous® and House-Mouse Designs® images, you can create fantastic projects quickly. Stampendous stamps are beautifully enhanced by the simple blending made possible with this range of innovative markers. The colorless blending tool acts as a “foolproof” finish for your project. You won’t believe the stunning range of colors that can be achieved with these markers, and the array of original projects you can create with the combination of Stampendous and Chameleon.

The new Cozy Kitten stamp is so adorable and is easy to color. Create a fun matching background with the detail pen from the Chameleon set and color it to match the Kitty's pillow!

What a brilliant idea to draw the lines and color them to match the pillow! I can't wait to try something similar. The shading on the background really shows what the Chameleon pens can do. The whole card is so original. Thank you for a great week.
