My blog has MOOVED to a new home!




Google hasn't responded to my requests for help in resolving the problems I have been having with Blogger after they made the recent changes to CAPTCHA.  So I have moved my blog posts to Wordpress.    Since I had to set up everything new, I gave my blog a fresh look and a new name.  It's now "Created By Deloris".

Here's a link to my new BLOG

Hope you will stop by for a visit!

Cool holidays

Another fun snowman digi from Bugaboo Stamps.  Colored with Copic markers.  Background layer was embossed with Snowflakes folder.  Image and background layers were cut out with Spellbinders dies.  Scalloped border cut out with my Silhouette Cameo using a file I designed with the Studio DE software.  Also used Studio G glitter glue, ribbon and Scrapbook adhesive dots to attach the snowman to the card base.

Catch The Bug - Holiday Chaos Color Challenge - I didn't have the exact colors as shown in the photo, so I picked the closest colors of Copics and cardstock that I could find in my stash.  (You can't see it in the photo, but I did use the dark cranberry color to shade the hat band on the edges, so I was able to use all the colors in the photo.)

Holiday Snowman Card




I caught the cold bug that's been going around so not much energy today.  Decided to work on a card and postpone painting the dining room until I feel a bit better. This sweet snowman is one of my favorites by Bugaboo stamps.  Colored him with lots of patterns in PSE.  Cut out with Nestabilities dies.  Also used Studio G glitter glue for the snow, snowflake buttons, a yellow button, white twine, yellow ric rak and paper by Doodlebug Designs.

Merry Christmas Ornament Card - 2nd post today




Woohoo, I have 8 more cards to go and I will be done for this year!  As you have probably noticed, I'm using my Cameo a lot this month.   (I am trying to use some of the many cut files I bought but haven't used.)  This cutting file is from the Silhouette store. (see picture above with details from the store)  Other supplies used:  Bazzill Basics designer paper, Neenah white cardstock, rhinestones, silver cord and my Silhouette Cameo.

Holly Time


I love all the cute images from Sylvia Zet at Wee Stamps, but my budget won't allow me to buy all the ones I would like. So I was thrilled to find these precolored images that have 6 on a sheet at Joann's on line store manufactured by The Hobby House.  Also used Spellbinders dies, Snap Color Vibe designer papers from Hobby Lobby, rhinestones, ribbon and snowflakes I cut out with my Cameo.
