Valentine's From Space

Hey there! Today I am sharing a late Valentine's Day Card. Well, the card was delivered right on time, just waaaaaaaaaayyyyyy behind on my blog posting! 

This was the card I made for my oldest. I was trying to avoid too much pink girly lovey dovey crap (LOL) on his card. So I went with a not so traditional Valentine image, Alien 2 by Scrapper's Delights. 

My original plan was to have little hearts shooting out of his gun, but as you can see I forgot about it while I was putting the card together. I think it turned out just fine anyway. My son liked it, that's all that really matters. Of course, he like the giftcard that was inside even more! 

Have a great week! Hopefully I'll be blogging more often once we all get over these colds, AGAIN!

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

A Bit More Time to Craft | Anything Goes
Classic Design Team Open Challenge
Crafts Glaore Encore | Anything Goes

Love

Today I am sharing the card I made for the new challenge with Spectrum Noir. The theme this month is love, of course. You can use a lovey image or just a Valentine's Day color palette for your Spectrum Noir projects this month.

I used the image Kiss A Prince Tia from Some Odd Girl.

I colored her with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers (colors below).


I added a lot of pink and red embellishments to my card. 



I also used the Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens on Tia's crown (Sterling Silver) and on the frog's crown too (Spun Gold).

Stupid Cupid


Today I have a card I made for Valentine's Day. It's more of an anti-Valentine, Stupid Cupid. 

I just love this funny image from Make It Crafty and couldn't wait to make a Valentine's Day card for my sister with him. The image is called Runaway Cupid and I colored it with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers (colors below).


I cut all the elements on the card in the silhouette from plain white paper. I used Mini Distress Inks (Abandoned Coral, Spun Sugar & Picked Raspberry) and the Spectrum Noir Ctystal Clear Sparkle pen to add color to them. The patterned paper is by Doodlebug Studio from a few years ago- still trying to use up that stash! I finished it off with a few dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops.
