Lili Of The Valley - Festive Reindeer

 Hello everyone

On my blog today I'm sharing my latest card using a new Lili Of The Valley Christmas digi stamp and sentiments, they're are from a selection of images being released in the next week or so. The stamp I have used today is called 'Festive Reindeer', and I teamed it up with the sentiment 'Happy Christmas'. The reindeers are so cute, I really enjoyed colouring up these little guy. I used masking to add a inky background behind them, then teamed them up with a striped background created by me. The links will be added after the launch has taken place. I hope you like it. x (For Sale - £4.50 + P&P - email me for more info).

For your information, here is the link to the LOTV Etsy Store to check out all the digi stampsand the LOTV online store to check out the rest of their goodies.


Here's What I Did
First I added I created the striped background paper for the card. Using a stripe die set I cut lots of pieces of coloured card - white, deep blue, pale blue, pale green, green and silver glitter card. I glued the strips horizontally onto a piece of thin card to create my design, then die cut the rectangle out on a jaunty angle. The striped paper was glued flat onto the card front. 

Using my graphics software I imported the sweet little reindeer image along with the sentiment, then resized them both to fit my project. The image and sentiment were printed directly onto colouring cardstock and die cut into an oval. The image was printed out again onto masking paper, and fussy cut out leaving a large section beneath the reindeers for the snowy area. I covered over the reindeers and tree etc and added distressing inks to the sky (see the list and order below). When the ink was dry I added stars to the sky with a stencil and white ink to add a little more interest. 

When everything was dry I coloured the image using Copic pens and added snowflakes to the sky with a white pen. The finished picture was mounted onto a silver glittery oval, and funky foam was glued to the back. The complete topper was added to the front of the card. To finish the card I added a little glitter to the baubles, snow and star along with a few pearls.

Lili Of The Valley - Winter Together Simply Print

Hi, I'm back again 

As I mentioned yesterday I'm sharing my cards using the brand new Lili Of The Valley Christmas 'Simply Print' images, this is my 2nd card. For today's card I've used 'Winter Together' and one of the new 'Elegant Christmas' sentiments. If you are new to the Simply Prints, they are pre-coloured prints that come as a PDF and include 3 page of pre-sized images in A5, A6 and A7. Simply Prints are wonderful for a quick and easy card; just brilliant for batch making or if you don't like to colour. The image is perfect for a couple's card at Christmas time. I hope you like it. x

For your information, here is the link to the LOTV Etsy Store to check out all the digi stampsand the LOTV online store to check out the rest of their goodies.

Here's What I Did
To start I covered the front of a 5" x 7" blank card with a piece of green patterned paper which I trimmed down to allow for a slim border around the edge.  

Next I opened the PDF file of the Simply Print images, then clicked onto one of the images to activate the copy option, and copied it. I opened my graphics program and selected paste, this added the image into the program, then resized it to fit my project.  Next I add one of the new sentiments, but I removed the white background (making it transparent) in Word, and resaved it as a png file. I placed the sentiment next to the image and printed the whole image onto digital printer paper, then die cut it into a rectangle. The image was added to a scalloped rectangle die cut from red card; funky foam was glued to the back of it to give dimension. The full topper was attached to the card front. 

To finish the card I glued 2 die cut holly flourishes in opposite corners along with some gems. A little glitter was sprinkled around the image.

Here's What I Used
Simply Print: Winter Together

Other: 5" x 7" White Card Blank, Pro Print Paper, 'Back To Nature' Paper Pad (The Works), Red Card, Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Dies (Creative Expressions), Decorative Tag Die (Sweet Dixie), Funky Foam, Glue, Double Sided Tape, Glitter, Gems

Lili Of The Valley - Christmas Angel

 Hi everyone

Well Christmas is most definitely in the air....well here in Lili of The Valley world it is. Lol Today Lili Of The Valley are launching the first of a huge selection of Christmas goodies ie digi stamps, Simply Prints and sentiments etc over the next few week. I will be sharing my cards during that time highlighting the new collection and I can't wait.  

So onto today's card, for this I have used one of the new digi stamps called 'Christmas Angel-Kindness' which I coloured with Copic pens. Isn't she beautiful! I team her up with one of the new 'Elegant Christmas Sentiments' and digi paper from a previous launch. Once the stamp and sentiment is available in store I will add the links to this post. I hope you like it. x (For Sale - £4.50 + P&P)

For your information, here is the link to the LOTV Etsy Store to check out all the digi stampsand the LOTV online store to check out the rest of their goodies.

Here's What I Did
First I imported the pretty digital paper in my graphics program, then printed it out onto some good quality printer paper. The paper was trimmed down to fit my card front, leaving a slim border around the edge. 

For the next part I used MS Word, and changed the white background on both the image and sentiment (as they're both JPGs) to a transparent background, then saved them both as a PNG images. I imported the digital paper into my graphics software and add the image and sentiment over the top, and resized them to fit my project. I printed out the paper with the images onto colouring card and die cut it into a circle. I coloured in the branch and some of the head wreath with Copic pens.

As the image on the circle was made into a transparent image it meant that you could see the patterned paper through it. To remedy this I printed out the same image again onto colouring card, coloured the angel and robin in using Copic pens, and fussy cut them out. Both images were then glued into place on the circle. The completed circle was glued onto a white doily die cut mat and funky foam was added to the back. The finished topper was glued to the centre of the card front. To finish the card I added a few pearls around the card and a little glitter to the angels wings. 

You can email me at jsnine.quinn@gmail.com if you require more information about how I created this card. 

Here's What I Used
Digital  Stamp: Christmas Angel
Digital  Sentiment: Elegant Christmas

Please Note - I am part of the Lili Of The Valley's Design Team and I receive their lovely digi images to play with and share with you; I do not receive any monetary reimbursement for my samples, advertisements or my participation. I do, what I do for fun and relaxation. Thank you. x

Thank you so much for dropping by, and please don't forget to say hi :)  I'll be back soon with more sneaky peeks of the fabulous new LOTV Spring stamps. TTFN
