Happy Father's Day

Today we give thanks to our amazing dads, for always being there for us and for all they do, I thought I would share the card I made this year for my Dad, who I love so very much.


I created this card using Penny Black's Especially Micey 30-410 and Sentiment from A Bear of All Trades 30-108, coloured with my Chameleon Pen;s Caramel, Bisque, Dusty Rose, Cool Grey 9 and Warm Sunset.

I added my own little extra bit to the sentiment using my Chameleon Detail pen and tinted my acetate for the glasses lens with my Caramel Chameleon pen.

Thanks for joining me today and Happy Father's Day to all dads out there, hugs

Beautiful Birthday's

You may have seen my recent feature in Making Cards using the new Chameleon Colour Tops, today I would like to share a variation on the designs in the magazine with this pop-up card using the same Penny Black stamps.





Materials used:
Chameleon Color Tone Pen Mellow Yellow, Chameleon Color Top Fuchsia, Penny Black Dies Awesome 51-333, Just For You 51-292, Butterfly Trio stamp set 40-473 and Flower Cascade stamp  40-466, Spellbinders grand ovals dies, White and Raspberry card, watercolour card, Versamark ink, White embossing powder,  Kuretake Zig real brush pens, adhesive and thread.

The die cuts on this version were coloured with Chameleon Color Tone pen Mellow Yellow which was fused for 3 seconds with the Fuchsia Color Top also from Chameleon.  To get the inside words to say 'to you'. I used the just for you die and cut the individual words apart I then turned the for upside down and cut off the R to make the word to. 
The images were stamped with Versamark and embossed in white to give a soft finish and coloured with watercolour pens.

Thanks for joining me today hugs Cathy x

In Love With Chameleon Pencils

Well it is official -  my go to colouring medium of an evening when watching TV is my Chameleon Color Tone Pencils!


No more nagging husband complaining as I pop the lids on and off my pen whilst he is engrossed in his latest TV soap!  The pencils are so neat in their little box, there are 25 pencils in the set but that gives me 50 colours and it is the perfect size to be by my side!

Last night I created these two little cuties....



Both cards were created using my Chameleon Colour Tone Pencils , #'s 2, 4, 6, 9, 11, 13, 15, and 19 and Penny Black stamps Birthday, baby!, Fairy Flutters and Special Wishes.

Other materials used were  recycled cover page reverse side of Strathmore pencil paper pad, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Tim Holtz Distress Oxides, Worn Lipstick, Faded Jeans and Wilted Violet, Ranger Stardust Stickles and double sided tape.

How cool is it that I only needed one pencil  (#13) to create the blended moon effect....
Thanks for joining me today, be back soon .....
