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.

Mojo Monday 433

Hi Everyone!
I haven't done a post in a while and I haven't done a challenge in a long time so I decided to participate in Mojo Monday 433.  For this challenge you make a card based on this sketch.
I decided to make a Valentine's Day card since it is February 1st.  This is what I came up with.
I used paper from Authentique Crush 6x6 paper pad and We R Memory Keepers Crush Die Cuts.  It was a quick and easy card, but I like how it turned out.
Thanks for stopping by.
