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
Another simple card using Lili of the Valley James bear. I’ve coloured up the stamp using Copic, used matching red cardstock and kept the sentiment and embellishments simple. Just the way I like it 🙂
The sentiment, cardstock and rectangle die are all by MFT Stamps, and the enamel dots are from Altenew.
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.
I have finally been able to sit down and make a few cards again. First one out is this adorable stamp by Rachelle Anne Miller. It is called Letters to Santa and I’ve coloured it up with my Copic markers.
The card itself is reasonable simple with a die cut main panel and some paper scraps die cut into various scraps for the cluster in the corner. The sentiment is from Papirdesign and most of the paper scraps are Maja Design papers.
Copics used: E00, E02, E13, E15, E41, E42, E43, E44, E71, E74, E77, E79, B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9, C0, C1, C3, G28, G43, G46, YG63, BG99, B0000, BV20, BV23
