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

I’m finally back again with a card today. As we’re starting our challenges at Copic Marker Norge a bit later this autumn, I’ve decided to make a couple of inspirational posts this week. The summer has been pretty hectic so I’ve prioritised colouring over card making, but I guess it’s time to even it out a bit again as my pile of coloured up stamps is getting quite big! Here is a card I’ve made using one of Mo’s Digital Pencil stamps.

Here is a close up of the image:

Mo’s Sunshine and Laughter

Last month I signed up as a patreon of Mo’s Digital Pencil. Basically I love her stamps, would hate if she stopped drawing things I can colouring aaaaand there’s a free image each month. Sounds great to me! Anyway, this card here is made with this month’s stamp which will be in the shop next month. I absolutely love it and will colour it up again soon!

I’ve coupled it with a background stamp by MFT Stamps, a little bit of distress oxide ink for a colourful dash on the side and obvioutely my Copic Markers.

Copics used: (skin) E0000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair and overalls) N3, N5, N7, N9, (hair 2) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, (orange) Y11, Y17, YR04, YR07, (green) G21, G40, G82, G94, G99, (red) R22, R59

Tiddly Honeymooners

First Tuesday of the month means time for a new Tiddly Inks challenge! It’s been a while since I’ve made inspirational cards for the challenges now, but this one should mean that I’m back properly. Yey! The theme this month is anything goes, so I’ve made a wedding card using The Honeymooners.

Copics used: N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, N9, R35, R39, R89, G00, G21, G94, G99, E41, E42, E43, B000

Colouring video: LotV Bunnies Decorating Tree

Today there is a new release full of Christmas stamps over at Lili of the Valley so for that occasion I’ve made a new colouring video. I have coloured up the stamp Bunnies Decorating Tree. As these are digital stamps you can resize them (do make sure it’s proportional, though) to whichever size you fancy. I have mine here approximately 8 cm by 7 cm for the print and if you include the white area around what I’m colouring up then that is 10.5 cm by 10 cm. Just to give you an idea. For this colouring I’m mostly focused on traditional Christmas colours using some of my favourite colour combinations.

There is no audio for this video either. I simply didn’t have time to get that done as well for this release, and I’m sure the baby would try to get her opinions in, too…

If you’d rather view the video directly on You Tube, please click here.

I have not made the card with this image yet, but I plan to have it done and posted up on the blog next week.

Oh, and yes, I know my markers are in desperate need of a clean, but I really wanted to get the video done for today. So, yeah, priorities!
