Okay, let’s see what creations our talented designers have to inspire you all today.

Hi, crafty friends! It’s Yoonsun and I want to share my flower card using the Chameleon 5 Pen Primary Tones set with you today. To start, I stamped the roses and leaves from the Penned Rose set on the bottom half of watercolor paper panel using the Sand Dunes dye ink.

I then coloured them with 5 Pen Primary Tones set from Chameleon. For the sentiment, I stamped it from the Floral Sprig set on the bottom of the panel in Jet Black dye ink. I mounted the panel on an A2 sized white card base using a double-sided tape and then decorated the card front with a natural twine.

Hey! It's Aimes here sharing a card created with the fabulous Altenew Succulents stamp set and the Chameleon 5 Pen Cool Tones Set. The tones are perfect for coloring the various on-trend succulents in the stamp set and are great for creating both masculine and feminine designs.


I coloured the leaves of the succulent using just one pen and leaving it in the mixing chamber for the same amount time to colour each leaf. I then added a bit more depth to the shadows by using the same pen without blending it at all and a few highlights/shine using  a white gel pen. The plant pot uses a combination of the two blue tones from the pack using the darker blue to add more shadow below the leaves. :)

To finish the card off, I added a strip of cardstock with subtle triangles stamped across it from my beloved Sohcahtoa stamp set and a heat-embossed sentiment from the oh-so-versatile Painted Greetings stamp set. Easy peasy!
