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.
James Bear in the snow, of Lili of the Valley, is one of my all time favourite stamps and I colour it up several times each Christmas. This time I have made a CAS card with him on the side with white on white covering the rest of the panel. The die cut is by Mama Elephant and I’ve added semi-transparent sequins and white glittery embossing powder randomly over the whole panel covering everything. Bright red card stock frames the panel and matches his outfit.
There is a new digital release at Whimsy Stamps again and this time I’ve used Autumn Swing. I coloured up a little scene for her rather quickly, but it gave the effect I wanted. Proper autumn colours were needed for this card and what is better than a big tree to swing from?
Copics used: BV23, BV25, BV29, E00, E02, E13, E15, E31, E35, E37, E39, E29, YG63, YG67, G21, G43, G46, R32, R35, R37, R59, YR04, YR09, YR15, Y13, Y17, N0, N3
I looked at my phone this morning and it said “October”. I’m not sure I’m ready for that. Don’t get me wrong, I love the beautifully coloured trees, the fresh wind and the non-guilty hot-chocolate moments with a blanket because it’s not too warm for it anymore, but still. Winter is just a tad bit too close. That also means Christmas is coming closer. Are you ready? Have you started on your cards? Mine are actually mostly done! And I have another one to show you today.
A new month also means a new Whimsy Stamps release! I’ve played with one of the new digital stamps. It has a penguin AND a polar bear. Doesn’t get much better than that, right? You can find it here. I didn’t use any dies this time as I cut the coloured panel and then I just tore across the top so I could have some background paper peeking through, but if you prefer dies then the Slimline card builder die so work well for this.

Another Polkadoodles project on the menu today! The stamp is called Just for You and I’ve opted for traditional reds and greens in the colouring. For the card itself, however, I wanted a blue and white wintery feel, so I used patterned paper in those colours which I painted with white acrylic paint around the edge. The peace and joy background paper is from the Gnome Season paper pack. The circle die is from the stitched and pierced nested circles set.
