LotV Woodland Christmas

I do love winter scene Christmas cards and this is no exception. For this one I have used one of Lili of the Valley’s stamps called Wodland Christmas. I think it’s adorable and will definitely use it again next year! This year I made it for the only Christmas card swap I’ve taken part in.

I’ve made a simple card using one of the stitched rectangle dies from MFT Stamps together with a die cut sentiment by Mama Elephant and three enamel dots by Altenew. Don’t need any more than that, right?

Lotv James in the forest snow

This is my second attempt at colouring in my own background. I stuck with various purples for my little forest scene. The adorable bear is by Lili of the Valley and I’m sure you’ve seen me use this stamps a few times in the past! It gets a bit of a different look with a drawn in background, though. I also added some snow to the ground as well as some falling snow. The brighter blue scarf and hat stands out nicely against the background.

The card itself is quite simple. I didn’t feel like it needed a lot added to it, so I simply used a stitched border die for the panel, a Norwegian Christmas sentiment in a dark purple and some semi-transparent sequins around it.

Lotv Let it snow

James Bear in the snow, of Lili of the Valley, is one of my all time favourite stamps and I colour it up several times each Christmas. This time I have made a CAS card with him on the side with white on white covering the rest of the panel. The die cut is by Mama Elephant and I’ve added semi-transparent sequins and white glittery embossing powder randomly over the whole panel covering everything. Bright red card stock frames the panel and matches his outfit.

LotV a time for giving

Christmas is coming up fast. It feels particularly fast when you have so much to do you’ve barely even got time to think about Christmas… Less than a month left now and I have a fair few colourings I still want to make cards of before then.

Here I’ve coloured up one of the Lili of the Valley stamps that was released earlier this year. I think it is one of my favourites from this year!

The card itself is simple with a small cluster of die cut paper scraps, a doily, some enamel dots and a sentiment. The papers are mostly by Maja Design and the sentiment stamp is by Mama Elephant.

Lotv bears building snowman

Lili of the Valley is working on yet another new Christmas release and it’s a great one! I simply had to colour up one of the stamps right away, with these bears building a snowman! Even though there is loads of white, I opted for a no-lines version of the stamp. Blue is my favourite colour for Christmas cards, so I suppose it was a bit of an obvious choice, but hey! When it looks great, why pick something else, right? hehehe

The decorations are kept simple with just a cluster of die cut scrap paper, some die cut snowflakes, one of Lili of the Valley’s own sentiments as well as some enamel dots.

And this marks the end of August. I am pleased I managed to do a card a day. There’ll be quite a few cards the next few months too, I am sure. Tomorrow is September, and I don’t think I am quite ready for autumn yet.
