Lotv Snow james

Did you see the video I added the other day? Where I coloured up this adorable little bear? If you didn’t, you can find it here.

Today I’m going to show you the card I made with said colouring, James in the Snow by Lili of the Valley. I used Maja Design background paper for a nice rich green panel and then cut the coloured panel into a smaller rectangle which was added off-centre with foam tape. A few snowflake chipboards and two die cut sentiments glued on top of each other was all I needed to finish off the look on this card. The die cut is from Papirdesign.

You will also find several other cards featuring the very same image on previous blog posts through the years. I have used it loads!

Colouring video: Lotv James in the Snow

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

RAM deer and bunny

Did you see the video I posted the other day? If not you can find it here. This is my second project for the Rachelle Anne Miller design team this month and I’ve kept the card pretty simple. I’ve used the clear stamp version from MFT Stamps here, but the image is also available as a digital stamp here.

The sentiment is by Pretty Pink Posh and I’ve added the coloured panel on foam tape to raise it slightly from the white card base.

Birthday party

Time for another birthday card today! I’ve used a stamp from Mama Elephant and a die from Papirdesign to create this card. For once I’ve even made a mini slimline card as that size fit the stamp perfectly. These are a bit unusual colours for me, but it’s fun to try other combinations and this is such a fun one! A few matching enamel dots from Altenew and a matching cardstock background finished off the look.

LotV Elbow Grease

There is a new release available at Lili of the Valley today and it consists of vintage boy images. I’ve coloured up this super cute one with the boy polishing a car. It is called Elbow Grease. I’ve barely coloured this month so it was fun to get the markers out again and I’m quite happy with how the car, in particular, turned out. This time I’ve opted for a Norwegian sentiment and it basically says “happy birthday”.
