Chameleon Pens & Avery Elle Blog Hop Day 1

April 20, 2015






It's Chameleon Pens and Avery Elle week!  This week the Avery Elle design team is playing with some amazing pens from our friends over at Chameleon.  These pens work so well with our stamps and dies!  After visiting here, be sure to check out the Chameleon blog for even more inspiration!  Be sure to comment on our company and designer blogs throughout to week to be entered to win one of two prizes - a $50 Avery Elle Gift Certificate or a pen set from Chameleon!  The winner of the Avery Elle Gift Certificate will be announced on the Avery Elle blog on Monday, April 27th. 

Chameleon Pens are one pen blend alcohol based markers, are refillable, have two different type of tips and currently come in 20 colors.  You can check out this quick video to see how these differ from traditional alcohol markers. 

Caryn Davies created this first card using our Cupcakes stamp set, Finished Frames dies and a Kraft top folding note card from our Natural Collection.  She colored the cupcake image using Chameleon Pen's Pastel Pen Set.  By using pens in the same set to color the frosting, liner and grey shadow Caryn knew that the colors would work together and the results turned out great! 



Yainea used the same Chameleon Pastel Pen Set to create this next card. I love the way that images from our Ellie stamp set look colored in these pretty neutral colors.  They look great against the patterned paper from our Sorbet and Everyday paper pads and the sentiment from our We R Family Additions stamp set.



Thank you Caryn and Yainea for sharing with us today.  Thank YOU for stopping by to take a peek. Be sure to stop by tomorrow for more inspiration.  Have a great day!
