LotV Kitty hugs

Tomorrow there’ll be a new Lili of the Valley release and this cute image is a part of it! I’ve coloured it up with Copic markers as usual and kept the card simple. Red was my go-to colour this time. The text strip will also be available with this release.

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.

Copics used: (skin) E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E21, E23, E25, E27, (dress) YR00, R12, YR02, R22, (heart) R32, R35, R37, R39 and a cool grey coloured Copic multiliner in size 0.1

LotV James bear flowers for you

Another simple card using Lili of the Valley James bear. I’ve coloured up the stamp using Copic, used matching red cardstock and kept the sentiment and embellishments simple. Just the way I like it 🙂

The sentiment, cardstock and rectangle die are all by MFT Stamps, and the enamel dots are from Altenew.

LotV Woodland Christmas

I do love winter scene Christmas cards and this is no exception. For this one I have used one of Lili of the Valley’s stamps called Wodland Christmas. I think it’s adorable and will definitely use it again next year! This year I made it for the only Christmas card swap I’ve taken part in.

I’ve made a simple card using one of the stitched rectangle dies from MFT Stamps together with a die cut sentiment by Mama Elephant and three enamel dots by Altenew. Don’t need any more than that, right?

Copics used: BG90, BG93, BG96, BG99, G40, G21, G43, G46, YG67, R32, R35, R37, R39, B000, B0000, BG000, BV20, BV23, E41, E42, E43, E44, Y35, W0, W1, W3, W5

Lotv James in the forest snow

This is my second attempt at colouring in my own background. I stuck with various purples for my little forest scene. The adorable bear is by Lili of the Valley and I’m sure you’ve seen me use this stamps a few times in the past! It gets a bit of a different look with a drawn in background, though. I also added some snow to the ground as well as some falling snow. The brighter blue scarf and hat stands out nicely against the background.

The card itself is quite simple. I didn’t feel like it needed a lot added to it, so I simply used a stitched border die for the panel, a Norwegian Christmas sentiment in a dark purple and some semi-transparent sequins around it.
