LotV 3 little reindeer

The new Lili of the Valley release is due on Wednesday and it’s full of adorable little Christmas stamps as well as other fun things such as background papers. This time the stamps will be available as both .png and in lighter colours so you can colour them in no-lines without it being too fiddly. Great, right?

I wanted to make a slimline card using the three little reindeer. I coloured them up in no-lines and once it was pretty much all done, I decided that I wanted to use a printed sentiment to go with. I had already made the card front double thickness and painted white around the edge as well as finished colouring up the image so I was prepared for the printing to go bad. In fact I just did a quick eye measurement for the positioning of the sentiment as I thought it would just ruin what I’d made. (It’s only paper, right, so have to give it a go anyway, haha.) It worked out perfectly and the placement looks like it was done a lot more carefully than it was! I definitely don’t recommend doing it this way, though, haha!

The sentiment is from the Christmas Circular and more sentiments. I removed the word Christmas to make room for my chipboard and then moved the two snowflakes a little bit further down. I also drew in a few extra stars to make them cover more of the card panel. Finally I glued on three enamel stars. Let’s have a close-up of it.

And a close-up of the reindeer. You can see what colours I used below.

RAM space rocket

Do you ever pick something out of your comfort zone to colour up just for a bit of a challenge and fun? This is a bit off what I normally colour, but I thought this was cool so I wanted to give it a go! The Rachelle Anne Miller stamp is called Space Rocket.

I kept the card simple by framing it in a colour similar to the turquoise I used on the space rocket. A few chipboard stars coloured yellow and a simple sentiment is all I added to it.

Happy Christmas penguin

Another simple Christmas card with a little penguin. This time the penguin is from MFT Stamps and I’ve coloured it up with Copic. I did a funky cut of a paper by Panduro and glued some big snowflakes on top of it. A chipboard sentiment with a printed sentiment (because I have somehow managed to misplace my heating gun…) as well as some sequins finished off the card.

For mum

I have a Mother’s Day card to share with you today. I’ve used one of Neat and Tangled‘s awesome stamp sets, some chipboard and enamel dots. I embossed a sentiment onto a piece of black cardstock and opted for a kraft cardstock base for the card.

Lotv James in the snow

My favourite bear is definitely James of Lili of the Valley. He is super cute and I love to colour him up. This time I’ve opted to give him a green hat and scarf and I made a simple card from it. I used various dies to cut out smaller elements to make a little cluster on the opposite site and used a Norwegian sentiment by Kort og Godt as well as snowflakes from dies and chipboard.

Here is another photo of the card.
