Coloring Magic with Stampendous

This week the design team at Stampendous gets to show off two fabulous products! Stampendous and Chameleon Pens are knocking socks off with great stamps and vibrant color tone gradient markers. Be prepared for wow!

I'm so glad you have stopped by my blog. Today I'm sharing Quilted Santa, a new image from Stampendous, that is part of the Christmas in July theme week AND our hop with Chameleon Art Products.

Here is today blog hop participants

Chameleon Blog Hop
Janelle Stollfus - you are here!
Chameleon Pens Blog

and if you have some time to see more great new stamps from Stampendous you can see them on these blogs too!

You can see some awesome videos on how to use these new pens to get you up to speed and having a great time coloring in no time. These pens are super to use when you are on the go and for crafters who want the look of blending different pens with only a set of 20 colors! They are great quality color solution and the pens themselves are lush. It took me a short time to adjust to using only one pen to get gradations in of a color tones and then I was coloring as they instruct with some old habits kicking back in from time to time.

If you haven't used them try them out, or you can hop on over to the Chameleon Pen Blog and find out how to win a pen set of your very own! Stampendous has 4 prize packages up for grabs, so check out the details on their blog!
