There’s no secret I love this bear from Lili of the Valley. This time he’s made his way onto a clean and simple card, and in blue. I decided to just draw on a frame around everything by hand and then write over the stamped sentiment to create a shadow effect of it as it smudged a little when I stamped it.
Time for another card on my blog. I am so busy making cards and colouring at the moment that there is sometimes simply not enough time to blog as well! Yesterday, for example, I made three cards and eight bookmarks. I’ll calm down in the middle of November though, so I hope to post more regularly again then, and I do have a surprise at the start of November as well.
This card is made using my favourite bear, James. I figured it was time for a blue Christmas card, but kept it simple this time. I’ve combined it with one of the new sentiments also by Lili of the Vally.
I have another colouring video for you today. This time I’ve done a pretty quick one. I wanted to show that it’s not that important to stay within the lines or colour up carefully to get a good result. Scribbling can be a great way to do a sky, for example, and how you can quickly get a snowy effect on your image. By colouring up the image and giving it a background, you have a pretty quick and easy clean and simple card if you do it in a bigger size, and a great image for the centre of the card if you do it a bit smaller. Digital stamps are great that way. I will post the card up in a couple of days.
There is no audio for this video.

Here is another Christmas card I’ve made to match the others I’ve done the past two months. I’ve used one of the recent Lili of the Valley stamps along with one of the new sentiments. The papers are all Maja Design and I’ve used my usual acrylic paint, favorite lace, some twine, a charm and the wonder shape die by GoKreate.
