Watercolor Thank You


Hi all, and Happy Wednesday.
Sorry I disappeared for couple days. I have been fighting stupid allergies and my 8 month old one has ear infection and sinus infection...so I have been busy with her and never got around posting. This week is a week to show appreciation to SU! Demonstrator support, so I decided on a Thank You card. Demo support is wonderful! ( #weloveDS ), they are always there to help up and work tirelessly.

Happy Easter!


Hi all and Happy Easter! 
As I promised yesterday I have couple Easter cards for you today. (I will post the supplies and instructions tomorrow). For the first one I used all SU! current items, the Eggstra Spectacular (I think that was the name) set from the Occasions mini and the Calypso Coral celebrations add on kit.
The cards on the bottom I made 2 years ago to send to my family with picture of our 5 month old at that time (now 2.5 yr old), and never got around sending them (the card is a CASE from Nicole Heady from PTI), so this year I finally sent ONE of those cards! It's improvement. :D 
Hope you are having a wonderful day!

Pleasant Poppies aquabord


Happy Saturday! 
Today I have something little different to share. It's a little panel that I stamped on the background stamp Pleasant Poppies with Jet Black Staz-on and used Derwent Inktense Pencils to color the images. These are permanent watercolor pencils, so once it dries you can apply another color and the first layer won't bleed into the 2nd. Perfect for layering (as well fabric coloring). The panel I stamped on is Aquabord  and comes in different sizes, mine was 4" x 4" and came in pack of 4. These are meant for watercoloring, so that's what I did.

This is a quick post, but I will be back tomorrow with some Easter cards :) 



Display Stamper Sumbissions

Hi all,

I don't have a new project today, but I am sharing some picks from my projects from before for the Display Stamper "contest" for Convention. So here's are my picks of my work (3 cards. 2 3-D items and one scrapbook page). I have been lately into watercoloring, so tried hard to select varieties of cards and not all of them to be watercolored. As well the 3-d frame is a hybrid project :) I used MDS to print all the accents.

It's really hard to chose only 3 cards, there are so many that I like that I have made in the past (and there are as well so many that I didn't really like) as well as 3-D items. Oh well...I'll do my best to represent my style.

Peaceful Petals Thanks


Hi all! 
Maybe you have noticed by I changed the name of my blog to Creativity Within. There are many blogs named My Creations popping up, so decided to revamp mine. I am still working with the banner, so please be patient with me until I make one I really like :)

Today I have another colored card. I used Peaceful Petals set for this card. Stamped the image with staz-on and colored using LYRA Rembrandt Polycolor Pencils

Petite thank you


Hi all and happy Wednesday.
For today I have a card and a gift bag that doesn't feature water coloring or coloring with pencils or any other type of coloring....
I used the Bermuda Bay celebration add on kit for part of the card and bag. I used the dsp (card) and both labels. I love using those labels for cards and 3-D items. For the little gift bag I used Gift Bag Punch Board and made the Small bag. It's made by the same makers as the Stampin' Up! Envelope punch board and it works on the same principle. Below are the supplies and instructions.

At the bottom of this post is again my photopolymer stamp storage solution, I got a lot of questions about the bins I use so here's a list of items I used for my storage (the bin, pockets and label marker along with label maker tape)
InterDesign Fridge Binz Deep Split Bin
Brother P-touch Labeler
1/4" Brother Laminated Tape
1/2" Brother LaminatedTape 2Pack
Unmounted Stamp Refill Sheets ( I use those for larger stamp sets, but converting those, too, to the Office Depot Binder pages listed below)
Office Depot(R) Brand Cd/Dvd Binder Pages
Libbey Small Bowls ( I use these for my glitter and embossing powders that I use more often and combine few containers at a time, like clear embossing powder, dazzling diamonds etc)

Magnolia Card

Hi all,

I am back with another coloring creation. This flower took me few hours to color. But I LOVE LOVE the end result.  This is an ancient stamp I have had for many many years. Even before I was SU! demonstrator and I have never used it before. So I decided after many years to ink it up and color it. It's so perfect for coloring. I stamped the image with Staz-on  on Crumb Cake card stock and colored using LYRA Rembrandt Polycolor Pencils and Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils  
Again, great reference books for coloring flowers with pencils are:
