October 2018 Challenge card for ching chou kuik


Good morning crafty friends,

I have created a Halloween card using a digital stamp from “ching chou kuik.” The theme this month on their Challenge Blog is “Halloween.” I do hope you click on the challenge blog link and check out the Design Team’s projects. They are truly Beautiful and well done. Lots of inspiration if you need it.

Here is mine:


I used Black card stock for the card base, then added a panel of Lime Green card stock. Added another panel of Gold Glitter card stock, heavy weight. My beautiful image drawn by Ching Chou Kuik, has been printed onto Xpress paper and colored with Copic Sketch markers.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you liked my card. Happy Halloween!!

I would like to enter my card into the challenge:


Stay crafty my friends,


Nov GDT challenge at Smeared and Smudged!


Good afternoon friends,

I have been in my craft-room playing today and I made a Fat Book page for the GDT challenge at Smeared and Smudged. This month the Spotlight is on PiHi, and her GDT challenge was to come up with something from the song “The Funeral Of Hearts” by “HIM.” Here is a link to the song!

There is a part in the song that says: “When angels cry blood,” So that is why I used an angel, however, I just left the blood out. I was thinking of adding a pool of blood at the bottom of the pillar. However, I really wanted to keep this piece “Pretty.” This is what I came up with:

This is a digital image from Sweet Pea Stamps, they are now getting into digis, they sell rubber as well.  But since I have a lot of there rubber stamps and storage is getting tight I’m going with digis. I colored her with Copics and the hair is Prismacolor pencils and a baby oil blender. I added white Tulip puffy paint for snow, and clear Stickles for glitter on her wings. The two black heart/symbols I retrieved off of the web they are “HIM’s” symbols. I honestly do not know too much about this band, I have heard the name but that’s it, however, I did have a fun time making my piece! I used “Daubours” for my background in Pool Party by SU and Grey by Memento.

I would like to link this up to Show us your Blog by Sweet Pea Stamps.

Thank you for taking the time to visit with me and thank you for your comments.
