Quilted Santa: Chameleon Pens Collaboration with Stampendous!

Welcome! I have 2 blog posts to share with you today. This post is for Stampendous!. If you are looking for my Left of Center/A Day for Daisies post, please click HERE. The Stampendous! Design Team has been so fortunate to have been able to play and use the entire set of Chameleon Pens for our July catalog. These fun markers work differently from other types of markers, so although there is a bit of a learning curve, once you get the hang of it, you can make some really incredible pieces. And there are lots of videos and tutorials that you can find on YouTube. I saved my favorite card for last this week. I used the fantastic Quilted Santa stamp. This image really lends itself beautifully to the Chameleon Color Tones Markers. 


  1. I colored the stamped image of the Quilted Santa with the Chameleon Pens listed in the supplies, and then she fussy cut the image out.
  2. I cut out my card base using Kraft colored cardstock to a 5 1/2" x 8." Then, using the Crystal Dreamweaver Stencil, I applied it randomly all over the card base with a sponge dauber and Vintage Sepia Versa Fine ink from Imagine Crafts.
  3. Red and green mats were then cut using the Spellbinders Card Creator A-2 Mating Basics A.
  4. The "Christmas Greetings" sentiment from the Holiday Expressions set was stamped in Vintage Sepia on cream cardstock and cut out.
  5. Chestnut Roan ink was used to ink around all of the edges. This pad was used because of it's smooth pad, and soft, chalky finish.
  6. All pieces were glued and attached to the card base.
