LotV boy and his dinosaur

I made a really fun and colourful card for the latest Lili of the Valley stamp release. The new boy stamps are adorable, and I love this little one riding on a dinosaur with loads of presents and a little cupcake at the tip of the dinosaur’s tail!

The card is kept simple. I used distress inks to create a matching panel to have on the side of the coloured image and put the sentiment stamp on bright orange card stock. Because birthday cards are supposed to be fun, right?

Whimsy Frog Prince

Leap year day today. 29th February, so of course I had to post something as it’ll be a while until I have that opportunity again! I’ve used the Frog Prince from the Wee Stamps collection over at Whimsy Stamps for this card. I’ve stuck with my CAS card size and made it a semi-layered card.

Copics used: YG01, G21, G24, G28, BG99, B21, B23, B26, B39, Y32, Y35, Y38, N5, N7, N9

LotV James bear with presents

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.

Copics used: E41, E42, E43, E44, B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, BG90, BG93, BG96, BG99, N0, N1, N3, N5, V91, V95

Colouring video: LotV Stargazing

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.

LotV Tomte with teddies

There was a new Lili of the Valley release last week, and although I’ve coloured a few of the stamps which you might have seen on Instagram, this is the first card I’ve made. It would appear that I am mostly going for red and white for Christmas cards this year and that they are layered. At least so far…

I’ve used Maja Design papers, my favourite lace, a bit of ribbon and twine. As usual I’ve used white acrylic paint on the edges. The sentiement is also a new ones from Lili of the Valley.

Copics used: (skin) E0000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (red) R22, R24, R29, R59, R89, (brown) E41, E42, E43, E44, (ground) W0, W1, W3, W5, (white) N0, N1, N3, (green) G40, G82, G99
