A bit of Christmas in April

Because why not, right? This is possibly my favourite Lili of the Valley image. I love James Bear and this particular one is adorable! I used some Maja Design papers, but kept the card reasonably simple.

I’ve signed up for a couple of Christmas card swaps and this is one of the cards I made. I used one of my favourite bear stamps, by Lili of the Valley, my favourite Maja Design papers along with my favourite lace. Can you spot a theme going here? I edged the outer papers with white acrylic paint to give the card even more of a wintery feel.

Copics used: E41, E42, E43, E44, N0, N1, N3 and the blues I don’t remember.. maybe it was the B30s..

There’s no secret I love this bear from Lili of the Valley. This time he’s made his way onto a clean and simple card, and in blue. I decided to just draw on a frame around everything by hand and then write over the stamped sentiment to create a shadow effect of it as it smudged a little when I stamped it.

Copics used: E41, E42, E43, E44, B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, BG90, BG93, BG96, BG99, N0, N1, N3, N5, V91, V95

Time for another card on my blog. I am so busy making cards and colouring at the moment that there is sometimes simply not enough time to blog as well! Yesterday, for example, I made three cards and eight bookmarks. I’ll calm down in the middle of November though, so I hope to post more regularly again then, and I do have a surprise at the start of November as well.

This card is made using my favourite bear, James. I figured it was time for a blue Christmas card, but kept it simple this time. I’ve combined it with one of the new sentiments also by Lili of the Vally.

Copics used: (blue) B32, B34, B37, B39, (bear) E41, E42, E43, E44, (grey) C0, C1, C3, (ground) N0, N1, N3, N5

Purple Christmas and teddy bears

Christmas is upon us, or well it’s Boxing Day already! I thought I would show you two more Christmas cards I’ve made this year. I’ve decided to add them both to the same post as they sort of match nicely as both are purple with James bear from Lili of the Valley and sentiments from Papirdesign

And here is the second one.

Copics used: (teddy) E41, E42, E43, E44, (purple) V12, V15, V17, (ground) W0, W1, W3, (grey) C1, C3, (green) YG01, YG13, YG63, YG67, (yellow) Y11, Y13, Y17, Y19
