Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a layout I created from the BoBunny collection called Petal Lane.  The colours are mostly soft pinks and yellows with some striking black and the patterns dominated by flowers and bicycles.  It’s gorgeous!  Although it’s a feminine colour palette, it works for a lot of other photos too.  Here, I used it for my son’s kindergarten class picture. Here’s an image of the Petal Lane Collection pack. I was inspired by some small hearts on one of the sheets of patterned paper to add some more hearts with the BoBunny Lots of Love stickable stencil and some BoBunny glitter paste.  These stencils are fabulous to use because they don’t move around while you are applying paste.  Unfortunately, I didn’t have any yellow glitter paste in my stash, but I used the colour called ‘Sugar’, which is basically clear.  After it dried, I coloured it with…

Hello everyone – Kerry Engel here with a fun card for you to colour and design at home. This card is a bit of a mash-up. I first drew out the words and cut out half the butterfly on my electronic cutting machine. You could easily just print it out on cardstock and fussy cut half the butterfly if you do not have a cutting machine. – CLICK HERE for the project.I stamped around the words with a Falling Flowers stamp from Stampin’ Up! I made a mask of the stamp (and words) so I could layer the flowers down the side of the card.I used a Ranger  embossing pen and traced around the main title and used clear embossing powder to create a raised border on the letters. I  coloured in the letters, butterfly and flowers using my Chameleon pens. Shading and layering with various yellows and oranges. To finish it…

Today on our blog, we welcome colouring artist Betty Hung who is sharing her thoughts on Chameleon Pens. I received a set of 22 Chameleon pens, plus a box of 16 Chameleon Color Cards last week, and I am off this week. Lucky me! What better way to spend your vacation days than trying out new coloring products? After playing with them for two days, I have to say I am in love with these Chameleon pens. Simply put, Chameleon pens are alcohol markers. They are designed so that you can achieve multiple tones from light to dark using one pen. These are alcohol based, so I wouldn’t use them on my coloring books unless they are single-sided. It soaked through 70 lb card stock paper that I used to print my coloring cards, so make sure you put extra protection underneath to protect your desk while coloring. Each pen has 3 parts: a brush nib, a…

Kim here today to share my take on the March Sketchy Challenge. This fun sketch was designed by the talented Kerry Engel; who shared several takes of this sketch in our Sketchy Gallery. I choose to work with this sketch while on retreat a few weeks back. I am not a productive scrapbooker at retreats because I socialize and enjoy the company around me, I find it hard to create with so much going on but wouldn’t miss them for the world…retreats are just plain good for the soul! I used paper and die-cuts from Kaisercraft’s “Me Collection”. It was the perfect retreat paper…I grabbed 3 Chameleons pens and randomly coloured some of the doodles on the page…all while keeping up with the stories going on around me! I grabbed my Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L tape runner to put everything in place! My title is made from older Tim Holtz…

Hello everyone! It’s Kelly Klapstein here today sharing a cute “Good Luck” card with you. I designed this card using only a few supplies: Chameleon Pens, Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock, Tombow Adhesive, Westcott Trimmer, and a pencil. You might know that I’m slightly obsessed with brush lettering and calligraphy, so I wanted to show you a way you can ‘fake’ out lettering in an easy way. Start by writing a word with a pencil. Then add a second line to the downstrokes of the letters. When you finish sketching the rest of the card, you trace over it with a permanent pen.  I love the black detail pen that comes in with the Chameleon Pen set.  It has 2 nibs of different sizes on either end. I used the larger .6mm nib for my card. For the lettering, you can either fill in the strokes with the black pen or leave…

This paper is a free item in the Sale-A-Bration campaign that ends March 31, 2017, so hurry if you want some!!!  If you’re not familiar with Sale-A-Bration, you get free items from a special catalogue with every $60 you spend ($50 for my American friends), so it’s a great time of year to stock up on Stampin’ Up!  products. The pack of free paper comes with 12 sheets, 3 each of 4 designs that you can colour with whatever you want!  Pencil crayons, markers, watercolours….. colour a little, or colour a lot!
