More Projects Using CTMH Lucy Paper Packet

I am really having fun with the products in the new CTMH Idea Book.  Today, I worked with one of the really cute new "My Creations" 3D items...a milk carton.  How cute is that...

The milk cartons come in packages of two (Z1739).  They are white, so first thing I did was paint it with a mixture of blush re-inker and Pearl Paint (Z1039.)  One of  the problems with having a nice camera is that it shows ALL the imperfections...you will just have to trust me...the paint is not streaky in natural light. hehehe Anyway, I cut the mats to fit each of the 4 side panels using a patterned paper from Lucy along with Sweet Leaf and Gray Wool card stock.  The images are stamped using "A Garden."  I love this cute new stamp set (A 1119).  The set contains branches, flower stems, a flower, a butterfly a bird and 3 different sentiments...all for $6.95!  You are able to assemble the images anyway you wish.  I stamped the leaves of the branch in Pear and Sweet Leaf.  I sponged over the stamped leaves with Sweet Leaf to fill in the grass and then sponged the top of the CS with Sky to make the sky.  The bird, flowers and butterfly were stamped and then colored with my water color pencils.  I used Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel to add just a touch of bling and finished up with Gray Bakers Twine around the Milk Carton.  I can't wait to put my malted milk balls in it!

Here is another card I did using the same stamp set and the Lucy paper packet.

I cut the card base using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge...I just can't get enough of the Cartridge.  I've said it before, but it truly is the best cartridge I have ever used.  The 2 mats were cut also using the same image but with a different function key.  I sanded the square mat and dug out my 2 inch scallop punch to make the sentiment mat. 

Don't be afraid to try the unexpected.  The Pearl Paint adds a nice spring like background and with "A Garden" you have the opportunity to create your own spring scene!  By the way, these are two more card for my March Workshop.  For Now, Happy Crafting!
