Today’s card features a Lili of the Valley stamp and I’ve made it yellow and cheerful. The sweet bear is coloured up with Copic markers and I didn’t go as heavy on the contrasts today as I usually do. You can find the stamp in their Etsy shop here.
The background paper is by Waffle Flower and the sentiment by Mathia Design. For fun I decided to draw in a border around the coloured panel.
The card is simple where the card base (from MFT Stamps) is matching the frosting and the background paper (also MFT Stamps) is matching the coloured image as well. A simple embossed Norwegian sentiment (Mathia Design) and a few matching enamel dots finished off the card this time.
It’s been a slow month on the blog. Life has taken over and I’ve hardly even looked at my cardmaking things and only coloured up one image the whole month. I do however have a new colouring video for you today, to hopefully mark my return into crafting again. It’s a long overdue video, really, as it features one of my absolute favourite stamps: James in the Snow by Lili of the Valley. I make more than one Christmas card with this image every single year and this year will be no exception.
I’ve coloured in a bit of snow and a purple hued background. The stamp itself has been coloured in a quick and simple way to show that it doesn’t have to be at all fancy to look pretty good. There is no audio for this video either, sorry.

The colours used for this video are: (brown) E41, E42, E43, E44 (green) YG63, YG67, G94, G99 (purple) V000, V20, V22, V25 (white) W0, W1, W3 (pink) RV63 (snow) B000, V000, V20 + sakura gelly roll 10
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.
