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.
Time for another Lili of the Valley design team project. This time it comes bearing great news as well. Lili of the Valley will offer a few stamps as clear stamps and this cupcake monkey stamp is part of one of the two sheets of stamps! They will also be available in digital format as usual. For more information on the clear stamps visit the Lili of the Valley website. All the new digital stamps will be available here once they’ve been released on Monday.
The fun background on the card is also from Lili of the Valley and is a part of the Watercolour collection. The sentiments are from Papirdesign (the die cut) and Mathia Design (the stamped text).
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!
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
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”.
