Paper Craftin with Erica

Valentine… Simply Put

Valentine’s Day is coming up and I wanted to make Merceydeis something quick, special, and cute.  I also wanted to participate in a couple of challenges, which is perfect for the Valentine’s spirit.  Here’s what I came up with. I started with this cute little alien from an old Valentine stamp set (The Angel Company) and colored her with my Copic markers.


I then covered her entirely in glossy accents, which actually turned out pretty cool despite the fact that I dropped her and smudged her head (which you can, in fact, see).   I then cut her out and adhered her with a pop dot to a tag.  I added little heart candies to a baggie and stapled the baggie to the back of the tag.  I then glued another tag over the staple and stamped “Valentine” on the front using the same stamp set.

How cute is that?  I hope she likes it.  Anyway….  Challenges I’m entering include: Party Time Tuesdays – Valentine; Papertake Weekly – Anything Goes; Cute Card Thursday – Crazy in Love; The ABC Challenge; C is for Cupid; Crafty Creations – Owls, Hearts & Love; MarkerPop – Valentine’s.  Take care, all!  Happy Valentine’s day!  **HUGS**

    Too adorable! I love the Glossy Accents all over him; and I can’t see any places where it got smudged. Very sweet Valentine! Thanks so much for paricipating in our Valentiene’s Day Challenge over at Markerpop 🙂
