LOTV Spring bunny

I was having fun colouring up a few of the stamps from the early spring release at Lili of the Valley while I was on maternity leave. Recently I’ve got all of my crafting space set up after our move earlier this year and that means I’ve been able to make them into cards! Here is one of them.

The sentiment is also by Lili of the Valley and the dies are by La-La Land Crafts.

Copics used: (bunny) W0, W1, W3, W5, C0, C1, C3, (pink) R30, R32, (sky) B91, (green) G21, G82, G94, Y13, YG01, YG13, YG63

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.

Copics used: (watering can) N0, N1, N3, N5, (flowers) RV52, RV55, RV09, Y19, V15, V17, (bear) E41, E42, E43, (grass and leaves) G03, G28, YG61, YG63, YG97, G21, G82, G40

Hello, my friend

It’s white out. Everywhere. And we are due even more snow tonight. Quite a lot, actually, unless they’ve changed their minds.

So this card is proper spring!

I’ve used a Mo’s Digital Penchil stamp, Make it Crafty Chipboard and Maja Design paper.

I’m really liking the chipboard sentiments!

Flowerbed Teddy

I am still playing catch up with last year’s cards. My mojo is still missing and I haven’t felt like colouring or creating at all this year. I really hope that it will return soon!

As I haven’t coloured anything this year, I thought it was highly appropriate that I posted up one of the cards I made last year using a pre-coloured image. The image is by Lili of the Valley. I’ve used Papermania papers, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, some bits from Craftwork cards. A button and some liquid pearls.
