Prima and Chameleon Pens - Day 1!

You know what goes hand in hand? Chameleon Pens + Prima's Stamps! It's always fun to share another friendly company with fabulous products with you. Prima has paired up today to bring you a wonderful feature with Julie Nutting stamps brilliantly colored with Chameleon Pens! This is a two-part series, so make sure you check back for part two coming tomorrow!

Here are the two sets I used for my project....

Cool Tones Set

Pastel Tones Set

These pens were fun and easy to use and the combination of colors  were a perfect match for the Garden Fable paper collection. I used the Julie Nutting “Gina” doll as the focal image of my colorful tag.

I colored her using Chameleon pens PK3 – Bubble Gum and NU3 – Fawn.  I used Garden Fable patterned paper for her pants and the mid-section of her top. I lightly colored my Art Basics alterable flowers using BL3 - Sky Blue to create a custom flower color which coordinates perfectly with the colors in my tag

Stay Inspired with Graphic 45

My favorite Graphic 45 staple has to be the wonderful collection of ivory tags.  I use them in layouts, altered projects and tag albums.  Today I am sharing a tag duo which features detailed cut images and my favorite medium of liquid pearls.

There are Better Things Ahead Card

I love using the Creating in Faith line to create cards.  I used the "Better" cling stamp to create the sentiment for my card.  I used colored pencils to coordinate the stamp to my patterned papers and flowers.  I added a brad and crystals with the floral cluster to add dimension to the design.

May's Prima Product Pick

The gorgeous product pick for this month served as my inspiration for this sweet Springtime birdcage.  I created a custom topper for the birdcage using an IOD Vintage Art Decor Mould - Baroque 3 and paper clay.  I filled the inside of the cage with painted eggs and added layers of flowers in the beautiful springtime color palette.
