LotV – penguin kisses

There is a new release coming at Lili of the Valley later this month and it’s awesome! There are loads of totally awesome penguins and various watercolour elements you can use on your cards. How cool is that? I’ve used used one of the splashes together with the adorable penguin couple.

I printed them together and then coloured the penguins up with my Prismacolor pencils. A little bit of glitter on some chipboard, one of the embossed labels from Lili of the Valley, a few snowflakes and a red card base and I’ve officially started on this year’s Christmas cards!

Let’s have another photo, just because!

Pencil colouring is fun! My next pencil colouring will actually be my 10th and yesterday it was a month since I first tried coloured pencils. Not many of them have made it onto cards though, only 3 of them, of which one of them have made it onto the blog so far. I find it quite different to make cards with craft as the base colour instead of white, but I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it soon!

This time I’ve made a Christmas card using a penguin with candy cane by Whimsy Stamps, it’s in the Crissy Armstrong collection. Isn’t he adorable? As I wrote in the first paragraph, I haven’t made many cards using my pencil colourings, so for this one I took a page out of Elin‘s book. She’s the only one I know who makes clusters of paper scraps like this and I like it, so I thought I’d try it myself. I think it works well for my card!

I use prisma color premier pencils.

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.

Today I’m here to show my first make of the year for the Lili of the Valley DT. It’s a Christmas card I made last minute and I used the image I coloured up for a video you can find here. I simply framed it with a few layers of plain card stock and used a chipboard sentiment from the now closed Make It Crafty along with a sentiment I printed to match.

Merry Christmas to you all

Today, the 24th, is the day we celebrate Christmas here. It was my turn on the Copic Marker Norge calendar today, for the final day, and I felt it had to be something quite special. I’m really good at putting pressure on myself, haha. Soooo, I took 3 of Mo’s Digital Stamps images and merged them together for a really simple card. I coloured it all up in traditional colours and kept the card as simple as can be.

And with this card I’d like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Santa’s even been by this morning, and I got my white Christmas after all. Yey!
