LotV bunny on rocking horse

I had a request for a couple of baby cards recently so of course I had to use Lili of the Valley images for them! They have such a wide range of brilliant baby stamps and they’ve been my favourite long before I got on the DT! I was asked to avoid the traditional girly pinks so I actually decided to give orange a go for a baby card. I think it worked really well and despite my dislike for orange I quite like this. I guess orange is growing on me!

I’ve used various Maja Design papers, my favourite lace and a Make it Crafty chipboard.

Copics used: W0, W1, W3, W5, YG13, YG67, YR07, YR20, YR21, YR23, E41, E42, E43, N0, N1, N3

Sympathy Angel

There hasn’t been a whole lot of non-DT cards here lately, so I figure it’s time to post up a few more of those. Today I’m showing you a sympathy card I made on order. It is not often I make this kind of card as a layered card. I gave myself the challenge of colouring up in very pale shades which is rather unusual for me, but I felt this kind of card needed a soft feeling to it.

The stamp is Young Angel by Aurora Wings and the papers are various ones by Maja Design. I’ve used dies from Memory Box and La-La Land Crafts, and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Here is another photo of the card.

It’s a boy

I’ve made a baby card using my favourite colours and some of my favourite supplies. Once again it is a tall card without any real colouring. The papers are Bazzil and Maja Design, the chipboard is SnipArt (frame) and Make it Crafty (boy) which I coloured up with some turquoise Copic Marker pens. The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts. The lace is also from there and I really wish I knew where I can find more of it!

No colouring today. I’ve made a card for someone at work. I used a couple of different Maja Design papers along with some chipboard for decorations. A bit of lace and a ribbon together with some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts.

LotV Sunny Thoughts

Guess what?! I’ve gotten a spot on the Lili of the Valley design team! In December they had a DT call and even though it was a terrible time for me to sign up for a new DT I simply had to apply. LotV is one of the first stamp companies I bought and I have loads of their rubber stamps from a few years back. My card making sort of started with these and I’ve continued to use their stamps since, so yeah, it was a big deal for me! And they were super kind and let me start a bit later due to everything that was going to happen at the start of the year.

The first card I’m going to show you as a DT is a card I made for a card swap they were hosting. I used one of the stamps from their newest release. You can find it both on a A5 rubber stamp sheet as well as a digital stamp. The sentiment is also LotV.

I’ve used a La-La Land Crafts heart die, heart and frame chipboard I’ve had forever, some Maja Design paper and various ribbon, lace and cheese cloth.
