My neighbor’s daughter who has been my boy’s sitter for over 4 years,  has been accepted into Vanier College here in Montreal. We’ve known her since she was 3 and we are all so proud of her!! I made her this congratulatory card in these color challenge colors from SCS.  I know she’ll love them; they are so “her”!! 🙂 Our theme this week at Crafty Creations is ‘congratulation/achievements’.  I’d love for you to come join in the challenge!  This week’s  sponsor is Wink Wink Ink!! I’ve also used the Simon Says Stamp sketch for their challenge this week. I love it!

Color Me Beautiful

I had fun with the color challenge on SCS! The colors were lilac, coral and green, yes, challenging, but I kind of like it! I used my Cricut to cut the flower layers and the sentiment from the Home Decor cartridge. The papers are from Crate; the Samantha and Blue Hill collection. I had not used them in some time and I was happy to find them and pull them out.  I used a  Martha Stewart lattice punch for the border. Lots of flowers for this challenge: Creative Card Crew – April showers bring May flowers Have a great day and have fun crafting! Deena

Gerbera Daisies

Soooooo….what do you think of the new look?  Did you notice?  Of course you did. I had a bit of a blog  identity crisis yesterday and spent  waaaaaay too long trying to find a new “look”. It was like I was at Payless trying on every shoe in the shop!  (I would say Nine West but they don’t even have that many shoes in their shop) . It was like getting ready for a night out, and tossing every piece of clothing I own onto the floor in frustration!! It was like standing in line at Starbucks and drawing a blank because I couldn’t for the life of me decide  if I wanted a non fat vanilla latte or a 3 pump no whip mocha!!! I finally decided.  Not confidently.  Soooooo…if you like it, great! If you don’t like it, you might as well not tell me.  Because I’m not going to change it for a while.  Nope, can’t do it. Would you like to see some pretty daisies? I thought you might!  🙂 Stamps: …

Mother’s Bouquet

I’ve combined the colors from this week’s COLOR THROWDOWN with FLOURISHES twinchies challenge.  Ever hear of a twinchie?  It’s a 2″ x 2″ piece of mini art that should be the focus of your card.  This mini version of Flourishes gorgeous Gerbera Daisies is the stamp I chose to use simply as my focus for this Mother’s Day card.  I colored them with copics in four shades of pink and two shades of green. These are the lovely colors for this week’s color throwdown.  I didn’t have to go far to find them. My 6″ x6″ pad of Sultry Basic Grey papers were calling me! Papers:  pink and basic gray cardstock (SU!) Stamps: Flourishes Gerbera Daisies, Stampin’ Up! All Holidays sentiment Ink: memento tuxedo black Accessories: copics: R01, R11, R20, V01,YG93,G94, Stampin’ Up! basic gray ribbon, dimensional foam I’m so glad you stopped by, enjoy a creative day!

A Flourishes Celebration- Silke’s Pink Challenge

It is Celebration Time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenges!    The week of February 2-8, 2010 marks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday’s ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY! I was absolutely thrilled to be invited to join in their celebrations by making sample cards for the Design Team challenges!!! I hope you enjoy them and they help inspire you to join in the fun too!!  There are six different challenges being posted and I have samples for three, so hold on to your crafting chair, you’re in for a treat!! There will be lots of amazing prizes at the Flourishes blog! Here’s my second sample card, this one is  for Silke’s “think pink” challenge (FTTC52D)! Please check out the Flourishes Anniversary Celebration post to find out how to play along! I thought right away of the “Think Pink” set for this challenge, and as I need more breast cancer awareness cards it was perfect! I stamped the dress in Versamark on glossy paper and embossed it with Super Fine detail embossing powder (Ranger).   I sponged over it with Pretty in Pink …

Sweet Happy Birthday!

I have a couple of cards for a couple of challenges to show you all today.  I was feeling uninspired on my own last night, and needed a push in the right direction!  So, of course I turned to the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge and found myself using  a lovely sketch by Silke.  Second, I used the colors of the color challenge on SCS to use pretty in pink, rich Razzleberry and Chocolate chip.   Such a yummy color combo don’t you think? I used the Flourishes Birthday Celebrations stamp and the Strawberries stamp for the sentiment.  I stamped the cupcake 3 times to build my little tower of cakes.  They’re colored in with Copics.  Instead of a panel in the background I used a piece of crocheted ribbon in a pretty pink. The Crafty Creations challenge this week is to use at least 3 different TEXTURES!  I made my DT card below using embossing,  textured paper and cotton ribbon as my three different textures.   The card above also has textured card stock, crochet ribbon and …

Santa’s Watching!

It’s a COLOR THROWDOWN challenge  AND a Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge!   Flourishes is also sponsoring the Color Throwdown challenge this week so I just had to play along.  It is my first time playing the color challenge but I’m sure it won’t be the last! These are the colors we had to work with and they are very similar to the SCS color challenge this week too.   I love these rich colors together! I just received my new Flourishes Santa image and Drummer Boy images in the mail on Monday, so I’m so excited to use them!   I just love this Santa face! !  He’s the jolly Santa I always pictured in my mind as a child and  he makes me smile!
