Hi EveryoneI hope you're all keeping safe and virus free. The virus cases in my area are starting to rise and are high in the local authority 1/2 mile up the road, so I'm keeping safe and staying inside as much as possible and crafting. Thankfully I have lots of spooky new Lili Of The Valley Halloween digi goodies to keep me occupied. The new launch includes digi stamps, sentiments and papers all in 3 different formats and is available in the store today. You can buy the images, sentiments and paper packs separately or in a big bundle...the choice is yours. Check out the names and links to the images and paper I used for today's card. I used the white PNG image with the fully transparent background, and Copic pens to colour with. I hope you like. x (This has now been added to my Etsy store)
It includes lot of cute witches and wizards along with spooky accessories, there are also sentiments and digital papers all in different designs. The images are in 3 different format --- a transparent sky in a solid white square (PNG) - perfect to overlaying over paper, a white PNG image with a fully transparent background - perfect for overlaying over digi papers with no edges or borders, and a JPG image with a solid white background. The lovely ladies at LOTV have included a written tutorial with your purchase and are in the process of creating a video to help you. If you do buy any of the digi stamps and papers, and you need any help please do not hesitate to ask, and I will do my best to assist you. Please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org

FYI, if you struggle using digi stamps or haven't got a suitable software package on your computer check out my 'Tutorials' page on this blog or in the 'Files' section on the 'We Love Lili Of The Valley' facebook group (if you are a member) as I've written 4 pictorial tutorials on how to download a free software program called WPS Office and then how to use it with digi stamps.
For your information, here is the link to the LOTV Etsy Store to check out all the digi stamps, and the LOTV online store to check out the rest of their goodies.
First I printed my sheet of digital paper onto good printer paper, and covered the front of a 6" x 7" black card blank leaving a slim edge all the way around. Using my graphics software I imported the sweet witch, pumpkin, bats, cobweb, spider and spooky sentiment into the program and added a dotty border around them. The scene was resized to fit my project and printed directly onto colouring cardstock. The scene was die cut into a rounded square. Grey distress ink was carefully added around the inside of the frame, the image was then coloured in using Copic pens. The finished scene was added to a black scalloped mat and funky foam was glued to the back and attached to the centre of the card front. To finish the card I added 3 black pearls to the bottom section.
