We’re thrilled to be playing along this week with the Chameleon Design Team and their amazing products. Our images are perfect for coloring, their pens are designed to color!!

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.

Debi Hammons created this curious kitten peeking out of a flower basket with the Pop Up Die for the card insert and this deep three-dimensional look will lay flat when closed! How purrfect is that! Here are the Stampendous products Debi used on this project.

Layered Paper Bezels with Debbie Cole

CHA Show Banner

We’re still at the Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show. The Wifi here is TERRIBLE, but we’re sending all the peeks we can when we get to the rare hotspots around the show area.  Thanks for your patience.

Our booth demonstrations have been going really well. We’re processing the videos from them as fast as we can. Hope you had a chance to see Debbie Cole’s brilliant new jewelry creations, but, in case you missed it, here’s a peek!

Layered Bezels and Pendants

 

We just love this idea! We have had lots of generous companies donate bezels for our jewelry creations featuring stamps and resin, but the ability to make our own bezels using our Pop-Up Die Set is just sooooo thrilling. And when you combine the gorgeous painting talent of Debbie Cole, well, you just get some stunning results. Here’s a closer look! (you can click on it to make it larger!)

The Craft and Hobby Association Trade show is in full swing, and boy are there some new goodies you’re going to need! If you’re lucky enough to be walking the show floor, be sure to visit Stampendous in Booth #723. Also check out our new acquisition, the fabulous Dreamweaver Stencils in Booth #2342. Such exciting events to start off 2015!

We’ve been peeking our new products to you this week. They’re only available to our wholesale stores right now, but you’ll be able to order them retail on our website beginning January 23. (we have to let them stock up so they can fill your orders from our website!) Start making your shopping list now!

One of our newest innovations is our Pop-Up Card Die Set! Unlike other Pop Up cards, ours features a system of overhanging tabs that add extra dimension to your creations. Fran Seiford shows you how this unique system works.

We’ve also created a special Build a Bouquet Stamp Set (with matching Die Set available) that will let you make gorgeous floral Pop-Up cards and gardens full of greetings. The matching dies make it soooooo easy to cut out your flowers. And when you stamp them on monoprinted paper from our Creative Palette, a bountiful bouquet can be yours in just minutes! Here Fran demonstrates how to use these gorgeous blooms!
