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.

RAM Letters to Santa

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

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.

Copics used: C0, C1, C2, N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, E41, E42, E43, E44, E70, E71, E74, E77, B91, B93, B95, B97, YR23, YR31, E34, R81, R83

Whimsy Sugar cupcakes

A fun girly card today using Sugar from the Pollycraft collection at Whimsy Stamps. The cluster is made by using various die cuts on bits of scrap paper. The Quick Strips die setΒ is great for this! The sentiment is from Enjoy the Little Things which is one of their clear stamp sets. I really quite like that stamp set as it has loads of lovely little sentiments.

Party turtle

I bought this Neat & Tangled stamp set quite a while ago, but I never really got around to using it. For one of the colouring challenges earlier this year, I finally got around to colouring up one of the stamps; this awesome party snail. I opted for no-lines for a change and love how it turned out. As he’s quite small, I made a bigger cluster of scrap papers in the corner to go with. It’s mostly scraps from Maja Design and then some random card stock. The sentiment stamp means “congratulations” and is by Mathia Design.
