New Digital Stamps and a Giveaway!

March is always a sweet month for me, with my birthday celebration on the 2nd, and the promise of Spring in the air! Now I want to share the celebrations with you!  I think the new ACN release brings some sweet treats for everyone.  As in keeping with my blog and shop name, A Creative Need, I am always trying to think of ways to satisfy everyone’s needs!  I love drawing and designing and I work hard to create new images that card makers, crafters, mixed media artists and scrappers will enjoy using in their own unique way!   I hope these will please you.  I am always open to suggestions and ideas from my creative and crafty friends! 🙂 So, I have thought to sell some of my digital images as sets! An economical way to purchase digital images, as with anything, buying in bulk is often the way to go!  I’ve made available a complete set of digital stamps for less than you would  pay if you were to purchase each image individually. …

Post Card Printables

I altered a few vintage postcards that I picked up at Graphics Fairy by adding my own art images,  some new text, and picking elements from a few different vintage cards to recreate my own versions here. I just love the look of vintage and it was great fun to mix and match different vintage images! Printable Postcards Have a creative day! Deena

CAS New Home

I made a CAS card for the CASology challenge this week… the key word was CONTRAST…which inspired me to use contrasting colors (coral and turquoise) to make my image pop. I used only four layered digital elements to create my card starting with airbrushed graffiti in coral. The next layer is watercolor paint spatters in turquoise.  Then I placed my Country Heart Chair image and finished with the sentiment.  Super simple and I love the painted background, as it makes me think of painting the walls of a new home! I created all the digital background elements I used here with Corel Painter Essentials 4.  An old version but fabulous nevertheless.  I love digital painting! I can get as creative as I like and use different medias (acrylics, watercolors) and brushes all without the mess! Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day! Deena

Just before Christmas I cased a card from my friend Peggy’s SCS gallery; I loved all the layers!  She had suggested that we case a card from each other’s gallery when we got together last, which was a lot of fun!  So here is what I did… I used ACN’s Christmas Wreath for my image. and Peggy made this card casing a card from my SCS gallery…. I love the papers she chose! She also used an ACN Image called BELLS and HOLLY. Thanks for stopping by; I hope you are keeping well as I know there are alot of colds and flus around this time of year!  Try to stay healthy and have fun crafting!  Deena
