So, I found a new stamp company on Instagram – you can follow them @pawsomestamps – they are based out of Florida ☀️ and they have some darling cute stamps!! I couldn’t resist the cactus set & the sea set, plus a bag of sequins in mixed colors! Very pretty sequins!
I got the order the other day (fast shipping! Even included a little note!) I am super busy with my digital art, but I had to try the stamps, naturally. So I used my Karin Markers to color a couple cactus stamps, added some white gel pen, and then stamped on the little faces! (Yes they come with mix & match cute faces!!) Super adorable!

It never seems like a lot of materials until I write it all down! And I’m probably forgetting something! But the point is the new stamps by Pawsome Stamps 🐾 they are super cute and they stamp very well. High quality stamps. The sequins are also very nice colors and though I did not use them on this card I did use them on another!
I cut the scallop circle 3 times and on the third time I had the Brother Scan & Cut draw the faux stitching for me – you could do this part yourself with a black liner pen of course. I then stacked the circles and adhered them all together.
I have a thing for doing half a card in a decorative card stock and the other side with a background stamp… I know I tend to go this direction often and use washi tape or faux stitching to blend the two sides together. I just like the look of it! I tried to give this one a “southwestern” style but I’m not sure if that worked!
Anyway – the card is below, I think these stamps are indeed “pawsome” and I will definitely be watching their new releases!
Thanks for looking ya’ll and have a great rest of your week! ❤️
Sometimes a design deserves to be repeated! Such is the case with these adorable little chameleons from Pink Ink! One of the cards is for a friend of mine, the other I just decided to make for fun!

Ombré inked tiny chameleons on A2 card base with hearts! They are super cute & fun to make in a variety of colors – be sure to pick colors that will blend well where they “meet.” You don’t want to make “mud!”
And how about some inspiration? I have my very own beautiful chameleons!
I recently got a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp “Be Kind” it features 3 leaf outlines & some sentiments. I love outline stamps because it saves me the drawing process and I can get right to the coloring process – plus if I mess it up…I can start again easily! Though I do love drawing I don’t always have the time. (I’ve included a picture of the stamp set at the end of this post for anyone who is interested!)
I stamped it using Frayed Burlap Distressed ink. I then painted it using the Lukas Watercolor pan set + extras (like the Lukas gold which I love!)
I cut the painted stamp out with the Brother Scan & Cut, and I also cut a second one in dark green only slightly larger (.08) to adhere behind the original.
I fiddled. A lot. I chose an A2 kraft brown card base. I kept changing the background and adding more ink, finally deciding to emboss with gold in random areas for a “distressed” look. I almost tossed it and started over, but I hate wasting paper!
The end result looks a bit like gold wooden planks. It wasn’t my intention but that’s what I think it looks like!
The inside has a white insert, left blank.
Love the stamp set, will definitely be using it again! It can be colored so many different ways. See below for the exact set!
That’s it for now! I have a few other cards to post soon!
