Today was ccccold here in Montreal!!! So it is very fitting that we are turning up the heat at Crafty Creations this week, with a challenge to HEAT EMBOSS your creations. Our sponsor is PATTIE G and we were so happy to play with her images! I’ve used Butterfly 1 from Patties Creations shop. I used FLORAL BACKGROUNDER from Cornish Heritage Farms inked with Versamark and then sprinkled with polysparkle embossing powder (ranger). My heat tool barely made it. I realized that something was broken inside and rattling! There was a melting plastic smell too, so I think I had better buy a new one before I heat emboss again! I love the look of the background and tried my best to capture the sparkle and shine of it in the photo, but truly it is prettier in real life! The butterfly is colored with copics and I’ve added dazzling diamonds glitter to the wings. I hope you will join us at Crafty Creations for the HEAT EMBOSSING CHALLENGE! Don’t be left out in …
Get out your umbrellas, jump in some puddles and dance in the rain! It’s April and that means Spring showers are on their way and at Crafty creations challenge this week Melissa is our star weather girl and she’s calling for rain! This is rainy Mae from Some Odd Girl stamps! Isn’t she a sweetie? I used an MFT sentiment stamp that I’ve had for years that just seemed to work perfectly here. I tried an SCS color combo (poppy, baja breeze blue, and pear green) to make my card today. The background is stamped using a canvas background from Stampin’ Up! in baja breeze ink. I thought it looked like a sheet of rain and I like how it worked. For the finishing touch I added some pearls to imitate raindrops. Some Odd Girl is having a challenge too for CAS cards! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a creative day everyone!! Join us at Crafty Creations with your rainy day creations! Deena
Lets escape our realities for a short while by making cards that are fairy tale themed! Fables and Fairy Tales is the theme I set this week for our Crafty Creations challenge. I chose this adorable cuddle dragon from Meljen’s Designs. Meljen’s Designs are just gorgeous, and they are sponsoring our challenge this week! The DT made some really cute creations, so stop by and have a look! My wee Puff the magic dragon is colored with copics and the scalloped square is cut with the cricut. I love the center point button on my cricut to get the shape cut around the printed image! It works so well with digital images. The papers are Basic Grey dps and C’ordinations embossed cardstock in light green. The card base is suede cardstock from SU! I had a very busy couple of days and it was so fun to escape reality for a while. I hummed “Puff the Magic Dragon” to myself the whole time I was making this card! Thanks so much for stopping by!! You …
I’ve chosen the theme at Crafty Creations this week as Winged Things. Come share your winged creations with us…fairies, butterflies, birds. angels, these are just a few of the possibilities! The bonus challenge is to make it a Z Fold card! If you need some help with this fold, Beate shares her Z Fold tutorial HERE.

The sentiment was cut with the Cricut, but I can’t remember now which cartridge I used. The papers are from October Afternoon Ducks in a Row. Thanks for stopping by! Deena
It’s Wednesday and time for another Crafty Creations Challenge! This week is super easy!! Just pick your favorite stamp and have fun!! Our sponsor is BUGABOO STAMPS and the winner will receive 7 images!!! As part of the DT I picked this cute digi stamp from Bugaboo to use for my card today. I used Stampin’ Up!

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!

The papers are from Creative Memories. The flowers are handmade, and the lattice borders are done with a Martha Stewart punch.

I love this sweet image from Philomena O’Neil. I recently came across her digital images at Phindy’s Place and I am in awe of how cute, creative and detailed they are! I decided to make a birthday card with this adorable image called “It’s All Yours!”, and inspired by the challenges listed below. I colored the image with Copics and used Basic Grey Nook and Pantry dp for the background. The card stock is Prism paper. I love the texture and weight of this card stock and have been using it more lately. The sentiment is a Stampin’ Up stamp, stamped and punched out twice with a circle punch and a scallop circle punch to layer the two colors. Challenges: Stamp Something: “Something Cute” C.R.A.F.T challenge: “Digi colouring” Thanks for stopping by, and for your encouraging words while I’ve been complaining about being sick! Have a creative day!!
This is the first card I’ve made for 2010! I had a great Holiday spending a lot of quality time with our families and enjoying the festivities over Christmas and New Year’s, but I’m happy to get back to stamping now! I’m hoping I’ll have lots time to get creative this year! Today’s Featured Stamper on SCS is Ardodd and I wanted to case a birthday type card since I will be needing a few very soon. Anne’s gallery is filled with wonderful inspiration and it wasn’t hard to find a card to case. Here’s what i came up with after a few changes. I basically kept the sketch and the embossed layer the same and changed the rest for my card. Paper: white card stock, rose card stock Ink: Memento tuxedo black Stamps: Stampin’ Up! For a Friend, House Mouse Make a Wish Accessories: Copics R29, R 24, R20, E00, E11, E33, Y00, heart brad, Happy Birthday cuttlebug embossing folder After having had a houseful of guests for the last 6 days, and all …
