Lili Of the Valley - Special Friend Wreath

 Hello everyone

Wow, I can't believe we are in April...where on earth did the past 3 months go! I also cannot believe that I will hit the 'big 6-0' later this month. When I was a little girl, people who were 60 and beyond were simply OLD, but now I have a totally different view on on that....surprisingly enough. Lol  

Moving swiftly on, today I'm sharing another newly released collection called 'Circle Floral Frames with Beautiful  Messages'. These flower frames are gorgeous and includes lots of different messages inside plus one that is blank along with lots of separate sentiments. The one I used is called 'Special Friend'. I used Copic pens to colour with. I hope you like it.  

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 with I covered the front of a 6 x 6" card blank with some turquoise grungy paper leaving a slim border around the edge. Using my graphics software I imported the beautiful flower frame and resized it to fit my project. The image was printed twice onto colouring cardstock, one of the images was die cut with a decorative square die. The image was coloured in using Copic pens apart from the flowers, then mounted onto a piece of white card to give it some support. Funky foam was added to the back of the topper to give it some height and attached to the centre of the card. 

On the 2nd images that was printed out, only the flowers were coloured in and fussy cut out. Glitter was added to each of the flowers, and then added to the card front using foam pads directly over their counterpart on the main image. To finish the card I added several pearls around the frame.

Here's What I Used

Copic Pens: Leaves - YG01, YG03, YG17, YG23, YG63, YG67 / Flowers & Berries - V000, V12, V15, V17, RV10, RV14, RV21, Y17, BG10, BG11, BG13

Other: 6" x 6" White Card Blank, Make It Colour Blending Card, Decorative Nested Square Dies (Craft Buddy), White Card, Pearls, Light Tones - Grunge Paper Pad (Craft Consortium), Glitter, Glue, Double Sided Tape, Funky Foam, Foam Pads

Lili Of The Valley - Mother's Day #2

Afternoon everyone

I'm back again with another peek of one of the new digi stamps, papers and sentiments from Lili Of The Valley. As I mentioned in my previous post the new Mother's Day/Spring/Easter collections will be launched in the LOTV Etsy shop tomorrow (4th March). 

For my card I have again used the 'Shoes, Shoes, Shoes' digi stamp, but this time I teamed it up with a paper from the 'Whimsical Damask' collection and a sentiment from the 'Embossed Labels 2' set. I used Copic pens to colour in part of the stamp and paper pieced the rest. I hope you like her.

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
In my graphics program I inserted the digital paper and printed it off onto smooth printer paper twice. I trimmed down one of the sheets and added it to the front of a 6" x 6" scalloped card blank, leaving a slim border around the edge. 

I went back to my graphics program and using the same digital paper I added the girl image over the top of it. I resized the girl image to fit my project and then moved her to the desired position on the paper; once I was happy I removed the paper from the screen (so as not to print it out again), then sent it to print again. The outline of the girl image was now printed onto the digital paper; I fussy cut out the ribbon and bow, the bottom most gift box plus her little dress. NB - Lili Of the Valley have produced a written tutorial to help you with this technique - here. Using my graphics software, I printed out the girl image again directly onto colouring cardstock and die cut into a square. Using Copic pens I coloured in parts of the hat, her skin, shoes and one of the boxes. The patterned paper pieces I cut out earlier were then glued into place. 

The completed image was mounted onto a teal fancy die cut square, and funky foam was glued to the back and attached to the centre of the card front. Glitter was added to the gift box. 

To finish the card, the embossed digi sentiments was recoloured from black to teal to tie in with the card using my graphics program. The printed out sentiments were trimmed down and attached to the card front using foam pads. The tutorial for this is on my 'Tutorial, Tips & Hints' page on this blog or in the 'We Love Lili Of The Valley' facebook group.

Here's What I Used
Digital Stamp: Shoes, Shoes, Shoes
Digital  Paper: Whimsical Damask
Digital Sentiment: Embossed Labels 2

Copic Pens: Skin - E000, E00, E01, E11 / Hair - YR000, E13, E99 / Hat, Shoes - BG10, BG11, BG13, BG34, BG49 / Socks - B0000, B000 / Presents - BG10, BG34, BG49 / Ground - E21, E53, E57

Other: 6" x 6" White Scalloped Card Blank, Make It Colour Blending Card, Decorative Nested Squares (Craft Buddy), Teal Card (Tonic), Glitter, Glue, Double Sided Tape, Funky Foam, Foam Pads

How are you all doing? Are you all still coping with the pandemic and the all lockdowns/restrictions? I do hope so. Fingers crossed with all the vaccinations going on around the world, especially here in the UK we will get back to a new 'normal' very soon. I miss my daughter and her partner who I haven't seen in person for over a year, and I miss going out with my hubbie and friends for a coffee and a slice of cake. I hit the big '60' next month and it looks like it's going to be a quiet celebration...just me and hubbie.

Lili Of the Valley - Grace Collection #1

 Hi everyone

I hope you are all keeping well and are coping with the Covid restrictions wherever you are. Here in the UK we are staying in a complete lockdown apart from essential workers and shops. I'm keeping myself busy with crafty projects and colouring...and oh yes, tidying my craft room. The tidying of my craft room is definitely going to be a looooong process, but it needs to be done. Sob!! I have already binned, recycled and donated a lot of my old card blanks, card and patterned paper, however I still have a long way to go before it's completely sorted. 

Anyhow, I have taken a break from the 'craftroom room tidy up' to concentrate on some lovely new Lili Of The Valley digi stamps. The 'Grace' collection launches on February 14th and depict the sweetest little girls called Hope, Faith, Kindness, Beauty, Charity, Wonder and Love. The images are in both normal black line art and in a pencil sketch format. The pencil sketch images are fainter and would suit no-line colouring, they could be coloured using colour pencils, alcohol pens or watercolours, and to give a softer look. In the collection there are also a set of extra elements, sentiments and Simply Prints. For my card today I have used  the pencil sketch of Grace - Kindness and a few HB pencils together with a paper stump to blend the graphite. I hope you like it. I will add the links once the launch has taken place. 

Remember to stay safe and healthy people. If you are struggling and need a chat please email me as I'm happy to help (my address is on the right). x

I used a paper stump to blend the graphite. The finished image was die cut into a square and I added to a scalloped square mat cut from dark grey card. The topper was glued flat to the front of the card.

To complete the card I added die cut flowers, leaves and a heart in the same colour way, along with a few pearls.

Here's What I Used
Individual Digi Stamp: Grace - Kindness (Pencil Sketch)
Sentiment: Kindness (Black)

Pencils: HB, 2B, 4B

The images were coloured with pencils, then die cut into a rectangle and added to a white scalloped mat. Funky foam was glued to the back of the topper and then added to the card front. To complete the card glitter was added to the stars.
