I coloured this one up in no-line earlier this year and also made a colouring video (which you can find on YouTube here). The card itself is simple with a thick bordered matching card base, some enamel dots and a “thinking of you” sentiment by Mathia Design. The stamp, Grace Love, is by Lili of the Valley.
LotV Cupcake Teddy
More bright pink for today’s card. I’ve used one of the newest Lili of the Valley stamps, the teddy bear with the cupcake. It’s available as a digital stamp in their online shop.
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.
Colouring video: LotV Grace Love
I have a new colouring video up on my YouTube channel today where I have coloured up one of the new Lili of the Valley stamps that is released today. It is a new line, Grace, and the stamp is called Love. You can find the stamp here. As these are digital stamps you can resize them (do make sure it’s proportional, though) to whichever size you fancy. For a limited time they are also available to pre-order as clear stamps. For the video I’ve used the the pencil sketch version of the stamp and printed it in faint lines to get a no-line effect.
There is no audio for this and as it’s pretty quick to colour it up, the video is only 10 minutes long, which is edited down and sped up a little from the 17 minutes it took me to colour her up.

I have not made the card with this image yet, but I plan to have it done and posted up on the blog next week.

Crafty Meraki – Sympathy rose
For today’s card, as my Crafty Meraki post of a the week, I’ve used Colorado Craft Company as my primary focus. The stamp is called Big & Bold Sympathy Rose. The stamp is quite large, so you need to cut it to make it fit on an A2 card. I opted for an angle a bit different to what is usual for this stamp and I picked some semi-random colours to colour it up. The flower is stamped with Ink On 3’s Fadeout ink.
As the stamp itself takes up so much space, I opted to leave the card reasonably simple. Just a bit of frantage over the coloured panel, a sentiment and some enamel dots in a match colour.
The sentiment is from MFT Stamps, the Smile Maker set, and is embossed in white on dark green card stock.
