Hello readers and happy Sunday! I hope you are all enjoying a nice weekend. Happy 1st day of March! Today I am joining the rest of the Design Team celebrating a new monthly release of products from Whimsy Stamps. There is just no possible way I can introduce today's fun new Chameleon Party stamp set without actually thinking of the Culture Club's "Karma Chameleon" hit song. So now, you too will have it in YOUR head.
All. Day. Long. You're welcome! : )
A list of supplies (with shopping links) is located at the end of this post.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Jelly Bean Green cardstock. Using the Scalloped Stitched Nesting Rectangle dies from Gina Marie Designs, I cut the frame from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I cut the stitched half circle from the Whimsy Stamps Rainbow paper pack and adhered it directly to the center of the card. I cut a thin strip of Jelly Bean green cardstock to adhere to the bottom of the card (for the chameleon to be grounded on). I heat embossed the sentiment in white embossing powder in the center of the semi-circle. On a separate sheet of white cardstock, I stamped the chameleon image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the chameleon with Copic markers. I adhered the image to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly, I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to the chameleon for added sparkle.

The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using the Gina Marie Designs Scalloped Stitched Nesting Rectangles, I cut the first layer from Jelly Bean Green cardstock. I created a rainbow colored alcohol ink background. I cut a 5 " x 3 3/4" piece of Kirkland Signature Glossy Photo paper to create the alcohol ink background on. *Note - to say yourself some money, purchase a ream of this glossy paper (found on Amazon!) in lieu of the uber expensive Yupo polysynthetic paper. I promise you will see the same results! Using the Tim Holtz ink blower and isopropyl rubbing alcohol, I created the background using red, orange, green, yellow and blue ink. Once the alcohol ink dried, I stamped the chameleon and the balloons on a separate sheet of white cardstock in Memento Tuxedo black ink. I colored in the images with Copic markers. Then I added the images to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly, I put a coat of clear Wink of Stella on the chameleon and balloons for added sparkle.
I hope you have enjoyed these fun rainbow reptilian cards today. Please check out Whimsy Stamps to see more of their new March release!
Thanks for visiting and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
