Lili of The Valley - Cupcakes, Stamps & Papers #2

I'm Back Again 

Afternoon everyone, I'm back with another Lili of The Valley card. Again I'm using one of the new digi stamps and papers which launch today in the LOV Etsy shop. As mentioned in my previous post the launch includes a selection of animal cupcake stamps and sentiments, digital gold foil circles & splashes, plus some stunning papers as well as the long awaited polymer stamps. As mentioned this morning, the A5 'Cupcake Animals' and 'Vintage Boy' stamp sets include 5 different stamps and some sentiment. The polymer stamp sheets will be available to pre-order. The images are also available as Simply Prints. 

For this afternoon's card I have used 'Cupcake Monkey', one of the papers from the 'Rainbow Kaleidoscope' collection, plus one of the gold foil circles and splashes. This time my card is a lot more vibrant, I just love these papers they're simply gorgeous. I used Copic pens to colour with. I hope you like it. x

First I printed off the beautiful patterned paper onto some good quality printer paper and trimmed it down to fit my card front, leaving a slim border around the edge. 

Next using my graphics software I add the paper again, and digitally cut out a circle and placed it behind the beautiful gold circle. The cupcake monkey, sentiment and gold splashes were placed over the top of the circle. I resized all the elements to fit my project and printed it directly onto colouring card. The monkey image was coloured in using Copic pens then die cut it into a circle. The completed image was glued onto a die cut circle cut from gold glitter card. 

Funky foam was added to the back of the finished topper, and glued to the centre of the card front. To finish the card I added glitter to all the stars and splashes, plus a few white dots to the party hat.

Lili Of The Valley - Vintage Boys #3

Hi there

I'm back today with more Lili Of The Valley cuteness. The card I've made was part of the 'Vintage Boy' launch but didn't get time to share. For this fabulous male card I used Copic pens to colour with and I layered it up to give it dimension. I used the digi stamp 'Racing Green', 3 of the digital paper from the 'Dusty Pastels' collection and another of the sentiments from the 'Grunge Stamp' set. The image is available as a digi stamp and a pre-coloured, pre-sized versions as a Simply Prints PDF's. All the links are below the photo section. 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  
A piece of grey patterned paper was trimmed down and added to the front of a DL white card blank leaving a slim border around the edge. 

Using my graphics program I created a rectangle slightly larger than the die I was planning to use and layered up 3 of the pastel papers to create a background scene (minus the clouds). I added the racing car and the sentiment on top of the background and resized it accordingly. FYI - the 'Husband' sentiment was recoloured white. The scene was printed directly onto colouring card and die cut into a rectangle, the driver was then coloured in using Copic pens. The panel was then mounted onto a deep red scalloped mat and added to the card front.

The racing car image was printed out again and coloured with Copic pens apart from the driver, then fussy cut out. Foam pads were added to the back of the car, and placed over directly over the car printed on the card front. To finish the card I added a few die cut clouds to the sky and glossy pen to the headlight and goggles. 

Here's What I Used
Digi Stamp: Racing Green
Digital  Paper: Dusty Pastels Set
Digital Sentiment: Grunge Stamps 
The Grunge Stamps & Typewriter Set can be found here
Simply Print: Racing Green

Other: DL White Card Blank, Make It Colour, White & Red Card, Nested Scalloped Slims (Lisa Horton), Cloud Dies (Joy!), Grey Patterned Paper Pad (Hobbycraft), Clear Gloss Pen, Foam Pads, Glue, Double Sided Tape

Lili Of The Valley - Flower Wreath 70th

  Hello everyone

Today I'm sharing a card I recently made for a friend who was turning 70. I loved the LOTV release 'Circle Floral Frames with Beautiful  Messages' and the blue floral card I made. 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 'Happy Birthday' and I added a pink '70' to it. I used Copic pens to colour the wreath and flowers. I hope you like it.

Using my graphics software I imported the gorgeous flower frame, plus one of the pre-designed sentiments then added the '70' in a bold pink font. Everything was resized to fit my project. The image was printed onto colouring cardstock and die cut with a decorative circle die. Everything was coloured in using Copic pens apart from the flowers. Funky foam was added to the back of the completed topper to give it some height, and then attached to the centre of the card. 

The image was printed again onto colouring cardstock but this time only the flowers were coloured in. The flowers were fussy cut out and added to the card front using foam pads, directly over their counterpart on the main image. To finish the card I added a little glitter to the flowers along with a few pearls around the frame.

Lili Of the Valley - Vintage Boys #1

Hi everyone

How is everyone doing? Well I celebrated my 60th birthday since I last posted, and thanks to my daughter and husband I had an absolutely fabulous day - full of surprises, love and laughter. The day wasn't totally perfect as my daughter, who is still protecting herself at home couldn't share the day with us in person. FYI I haven't seen her in person for almost a year and a half due to the pandemic. Anyhow, but hopefully that will change very soon....fingers crossed. :)

Right that's the 'catch up' stuff done. Lol 

So today I'm sharing a sneaky peak of one of the new Lili Of The Valley vintage boys, they are all just so adorable. For my card I have used one of the Vintage Boy Simply Prints called 'Wallpaper Paste', one of the 'Dusky Watercolour' papers and a sentiment from the 'Grunge Stamp' set. All the new digi stamps are also available as pre-coloured versions in Simply prints PDF's. The whole collection - Simply Prints, digi stamps, papers and sentiments all launch in the LOTV Etsy shop on Monday (17th March).

I hope you like it. (This card is for sale - please email me).

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 printed the Simply Print vintage boy image onto 300gsm white card and trimmed it down to fit my 5" x 7" black card blank whilst leaving a slim border around the edge. I used a fancy edge die on the bottom section, then glued funky foam onto the back. The digital paper was taken into my graphics program where I placed the sentiment over the top. The paper was printed straight onto smooth printer paper and trimmed it down to match the width of the card topper. The paper was glued to the card front first, and the topper piece was glued over the top of that. To finish the card I added a few glossy dots on both the top and bottom. 

Here's What I Used
Simply Print: Vintage Boy - Wallpaper Paste (also available as part of a set here)
The digi stamps of this image can be found here
Digital  Paper: Dusky Watercolour
Digital Sentiment: Grunge Stamps 
The Grunge Stamps & Typewriter Set can be found here
