You make me happy!


Good afternoon crafty people,

I would like to share a card that I made for Freshly Made Sketches challenge blog: #429 – A Sketch by Judy


I followed their sketch:


I used the Stampin’ Up set called “This Little Piggy.” I personally adore this stamp set, and totally have not used it much.  Stamped it onto Kraft card stock and colored it with Prismacolor colored pencils. Dies by Sizzix. Embossing folder by Cuttlebug.

Thanks for poppin’ in! Stay safe, stay home and do art!

Thank you for your comments.



Valentine’s Day cards 2020


Good afternoon crafty friends,

I would like to share with you all some Valentine’s Day card I made using the “Sizzix Framelits Dies by Stephanie Barnard – 118048” and RG Avenue stamps.


For this card I used the RG Avenue stamp set called “Sweet Love.”

I used Copic Sketch markers to color my image. Then with a piece of old towel I sprayed some 91% alcohol onto it and mushed it to onto my bear. Going for the molted, fluffy look.

My cardstock and printed paper is from a friend’s stash. She has passed away, and her husband is selling off her craft supplies to donate to Hospice in NC.

Added some Nuvo dots. The top left corner cut-out if from Crafter’s Companion. The card has been cut using the “Sizzix Framelits Dies” it comes with extra heart dies, and that Love you cut out, and that swirl under the bear’s foot. It does not come with a separate cut out for the panels of patterned paper I added to the side. I used the die as a template and traced onto the paper where I would cut it to create that shape and size for the extra panels of printed paper. I used Spelbinders heart dies behind the bear.


Using the same die and same RG Ave stamp set Sweet Love, and paper from my friend Pat Jayne. I also colored this bear w/ Copics and used terry cloth to create a fluffy texture on the bear. I added gold wire to the bouquet of flowers. Rhinestone stickers from Bo Bunny on the center heart, on the left. Nuvo drops. I used Spelbinders heart dies behind the bear.


Using that same side step card die. The robot is stamped using Memento black ink, colored w/ Copic Sketch markers. RG Ave stamp called “Beep Bots.” Nuvo dots.

The circle star cut out if from Close to my Heart,” called “Shaker Window & Confetti.” #Z4309. I cut it out using white card stock, then I Silver embossed it. I also silver embossed the 3 hearts on the right side. My idea for the circle there was to represent the moon.

For the background I Clear embossed the RG AVE stamp “CyberSpace” stamp. Then I used the RG AVE ink Sour Crush to sponge all over it.


I did the same thing here, Silver embossing powder on white for the moon. Clear embossing powder with the “CyberSpace” stamp, then I sponged on pinks, yellows, and oranges. Colored the Robot from RG Ave stamp “Beep Bots,” with Copics. I used Stickles.


Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my Valentine’s Day cards. I love comments.

Stay crafty my friends,


Harvest Greetings

Here is the sketch:

My card:



For my center image;  I used a Free Digital Download offered in this month’s newsletter by RG Avenue.

It was printed out w/ my laser printer onto X-Press It blending card stock, and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.

For the foliage I used a Martha Stewart punch with different pieces of CS from by scrap bin. Also from the scrap bin I used some green with my Stampin’ Up Thinlits die set called “Swirly Scribbles.”

For the background I used Tim Holtz Oxide Inks using watercolor paper by “Strathmore.” I splattered the top of my card with Gold and Sparkle Silk, from FSJ.

Monochromatic Yo from the Leia Collection at Ike’s Art!


Good morning Friends,

I have a card to share with you all, using an Ike’s Art image, from the “Leia Collection.”

Monochromatic-challengeThe Ike’s Art image I used for this Monochromatic card is called “YO.” This is just one of the adorable images from the “Leia Collection”

The 'LEIA' CollectionAll of these images can be found in Ike’s shop click here!


I colored my image with Copics. Then with “Brushable Glue” that I painted on with a paint brush, I added “Neon Flamingo” glitter and “Pretty Princess” glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

Neon FlamingoPretty Princess

The back ground DSP is retired Stampin’ Up papers. I used retired “Pleated ribbon” from SU. The card stock is also Stampin’ Up called “” and I used a Spellbinders’ die cut on it.

I created this card as a DT card for Ike’s World Challenges. However the challenge is over in a couple of hours. I honestly thought we were taking a summer break so I never posted this card.

I have spent a month in Texas with a good friend, and I was not on the computer much. I could have posted this from Texas, by having my mom email me the photo, but I did not pay attention; and for that I do apologize to Ike, and everyone else for not posting this sooner. But I do hope you all will pay a visit to Ike’s Art shop and look around she does have some awesome digis.

Here is the link to Ike’s World Challenges.

You not be able to get a card made in time for the challenge #19 “Monochromatic” but go to the challenge blog and check out what the other DTs have created, they really do, do some amazing art work, it’s totally worth your time to just hop on over there for some inspiration, or to just be wow’ed!

I am back home, for now… leaving again July 16th for a week. I have some exciting information coming up very soon. (No I am not pregnant!) So tuned!
