Lotv bears building snowman

Lili of the Valley is working on yet another new Christmas release and it’s a great one! I simply had to colour up one of the stamps right away, with these bears building a snowman! Even though there is loads of white, I opted for a no-lines version of the stamp. Blue is my favourite colour for Christmas cards, so I suppose it was a bit of an obvious choice, but hey! When it looks great, why pick something else, right? hehehe

The decorations are kept simple with just a cluster of die cut scrap paper, some die cut snowflakes, one of Lili of the Valley’s own sentiments as well as some enamel dots.

And this marks the end of August. I am pleased I managed to do a card a day. There’ll be quite a few cards the next few months too, I am sure. Tomorrow is September, and I don’t think I am quite ready for autumn yet.

Copics used: C0, C1, C2, N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, E41, E42, E43, E44, E70, E71, E74, E77, B91, B93, B95, B97, YR23, YR31, E34, R81, R83

Massive birthday cake

Another one of the stamps I’ve coloured up for the 30 day colouring challenge, this time one of the spring ones, was this adorable teddy bear with his massive birthday cake. The stamp is by Dreamland Crafts and I’ve used Ink On 3’s fade-out ink for the no-lines effect.

I used a green card base along with green ink on the sentiment from Mathia Design

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.

LotV James bear watching the snow

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..

LotV James bear with presents

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.
