Today I’m participating in an Instagram Hop for the Pawsome Stamps Anniversary Release. Pawsome Stamps is generously giving away three $15 gift cards to lucky winners on the hop! I hope you’ll pop over to my Instagram page and hop along with us! You can get to my Instagram page here: https://instagram.com/jean.studiojd
My card for the hop features just one of the cute little chameleons in the Chameleon stamp set. This set is so fun and has lots of different chameleons to play with!
To make this card:
1. Stamp the chameleon using Copic-friendly ink. 2. Color the chameleon with Copic markers. I colored mine in a rainbow by picking out my favorite Copic colors and using the tip-to-tip method to get a blend. This method can take a bit of practice and I think these little chameleons are the perfect way to learn. 3.Die cut your chameleon using the coordinating dies in the set – or fussy cut it if you don’t have the dies. 4.Die cut the Tropical Leaf Bunch out of white cardstock and ink blend with shades of green. 5.Emboss a panel of white cardstock with the Monstera Leaves 3D embossing folder and trim it down to 3 ¾” x 5”. 6.Use foam adhesive to add the embossed panel to your card front. 7.Cut a strip of paper ¾” tall by 3 ¾” wide. Use the Fine Trimmings die to die cut the dotted line across the bottom of your sentiment strip. 8.Stamp your sentiment on the strip – I was careful to make sure the bottom loop of the “g” did not fall over the top of one of the dotted holes. 9.Arrange your Tropical Leaf Bunch and our sentiment strip on your embossed panel. 10.Adhere the Tropical Leaf Bunch to your panel with liquid glue – being careful to avoid putting glue on the large leaf that you want to go over your sentiment strip. 11.Adhere your sentiment strip, making sure to tuck it under the larger leaf. 12.Adhere the large leaf to the sentiment strip using liquid glue - add a small foam adhesive dot behind your large leaf if needed. 13.Adhere your chameleon to the leaf using foam adhesive. 14.Add a few Drip Drops to frame the sentiment and add some shine - and add one over the eye of the chameleon to give it a shiny look.
