  Our niece is graduating high school this year so I had to make a card for her.  We will be traveling to see the graduation and my kids will miss the last couple days of their school year.  It will be worth it.  Hope you enjoy my project.  I used some chipboard numbers and covered them in platinum embossing powder.  I also used some cranberry CTMH cardstock, black cardstock and white cardstock.  I found a scrap of paper with tiny writing on it and used baker's twine to tie it up.  The Congrats stamp is a CTMH stamp also.

Valentine's Milk Carton

Hi Everyone,
 
Today I have a little Valentine's Gift idea for you.
 
I had these little milk cartons in my stash of supplies from Close to My Heart.  I decided I wanted to decorate one.  I first added distress ink all over the carton.  Then I sprayed with a little water.  I then cut our some paper and added ink to the edges.  I then punched two scalloped boarders and glued it to some cardstock.  I inked the edges then glued it to the carton.  I added some die cuts and a gold binder clip.
 
 
 
 
 
Thanks for stopping by.

Paper Smooches Fun & Cute

Hi Everyone,
I have another card and challenge for you.  I have done several Paper Smooches challenges in the past.  I love Paper Smooches stamps and dies.  So I decided to make another Valentine's Day Card.
 
You can find the challenge here.
 
So here is the card I created.
 
I started with watercolor paper and used distress inks in Festive Berries, Fired Brick and Picked Raspberry.  I added a little water to add a water color look after I blended the 3 colors on the paper.  After it dried I stamped a little white heart from the We Totally Click stamp set.  I then stamped the two space ships on white cardstock.  I used versa fine ink in onyx black and the Space Cadet Stamp.  I masked the left space ship and added the alien to the space ship.  I then colored with Copic markers.  I was glad the colors didn't bleed.  I then fussy cut the images.  I lined the images with a Copic multiliner.  I glued them down wrote the greeting and added the gold heart. 
 
I love how it turned out!
 
Thanks for stopping by.
