Lili Of The Valley - Snow Globes

Hi everyone

Today I'm sharing the last of my sneaky peaks of the new Lili Of The Valley Christmas polymer stamps launching this Saturday (10th) at the Crafterama event in Harrogate. The stamps will then be available in the  LOTV Etsy shop on the 12th September.

For my 2 cards today I've used the fabulous 'Snowglobes' stamps. The set includes an empty snowglobe and 6 images to going inside plus a load of sentiments, obviously the images and the sentiments can be used independently of the snow globe if you wish. I have included the details for each individual card for your information. All the links will be added after I return from my holiday, but don't forget you can simply go to the LOTV Etsy Store to and search under the polymer stamps listing from the 12th Sept onwards. I hope you like them.

CARD #1 - Here's What I Did & Used
I trimmed down a piece of red card and attached it to the front of a DL white card blank leaving a slim border around the edge. A white scalloped rectangle was glued flat onto the card front.

I die cut a rectangle of the same red card and stamped snowflakes all over it using white ink, and going off the edge in certain places. When it was dry this was glued into the centre of the white rectangle. 

The snow globe and house was stamped onto Copic friendly card, coloured with Copic pens and fussy cut out. Two empty snow globes were stamped onto card and then fussy cut out slightly smaller than the image, these were glued to the back of the coloured version to add a little extra dimension. The finished snow globe was added to the bottom section of the card. Glitter was added to the snow in the scene.

To finish the card a festive sentiment was die cut twice and stacked up, then added to the top of the card along with a few sequins.

Hi everyone

Well today I'm doing a little Guest Designing for Craft Consortium. Yay! I offered to colour up some of the stamps from the 'Candy Christmas' collection that's just launched. The collection was created in partnership with the super talented Helz Cupperditch. Helz is the wonderful talent behind the 'Snomes', 'Sandy Paws', 'Polar Playtime' collections. The collection is full of cute gingerbread people and their houses plus a few snow peeps thrown in. There are also complementary paper pads, 3D decoupage sets, chipboard ephemera and much more....see the link below.  

I've made 2 cards using the 'Candy' stamp set and coloured them up using Distress Re-inkers and pads. I've written up how I did each one and all the products I used. I have another stamp set to share with but I'm off on my hollibobs soon so I will share my creations when I return. :)

I masked the polar bear/gingerbread man and stamped the middle tree.  I stamped the tree again on masking paper and cut it out them masked the tree, then stamped the other 2 trees either side. With a pencil I drew a couple of snow lines to complete the scene and removed the masks. 

The scene was coloured using distress re-inkers and pads, then die cut into a circle and matted onto a green scalloped circle. Glitter was added to the trees and snow line, then the finished topper was glued flat on top of the snowflake.

I stamped the house again on masking paper, and then cut this out and again placed it over the house on the card. I stamped the tree over the top of the house on the left hand side. With a pencil I drew a snow lines to complete the scene. I left the masks in place and painted around everything to create a sky, when it was dry I removed the masks. 

The scene was coloured using distress re-inkers and pads, then die cut into a square. To add a little extra detail I added part of a snowflake, bunting and a pearl in the top right corner, and a mini sentiment in the bottom right.

I'm sharing my latest card which I've made for the 'As You Like It Challenge' blog. was asked by my lovely friend and fellow DT member Annette if I would be a Guest DT member and create a card using one of Amanda Jayne Designs images, and use my favourite shaped card.

Amanda Jayne Designs - Christmas Bear

 Hi everyone

I'm sharing a new card and image for Amanda Jayne Designs. Amanda has launched a few new collections and the image I've used is from the new Christmas collection called 'Christmas Bear' which I combined with a digi paper and sentiment from my stash. I used Copic pens colour with. I hope you like it. (For sale - £4.50 + P&P - requests by email please)  

Amanda has a lovely array of digi stamp, papers and sentiments in her Etsy shop, along with some pre-coloured images and papers. For your information, here is the link to the Amanda Jayne Designs Etsy Store or go to Etsy and search for Amanda Jane Designs 80 to check out all her lovely digi stamps and papers.



Here's What I Did
To printed off a sheet of digital paper and trimmed it down to fit the front of a 6" x 6" card blank, leaving a slim border around the edge. A large white die cut snowflake was glue flat onto the centre of the card.

I imported the same digital paper as before and added a sentiment over the top, resized it and changed it to white text instead of black. The pattern paper was printed out onto card and die cut into a circle. Using the same die a circle was cut out from white card; the bottom section was cut out with a slight curve to create a snowy mound. Copic pen was added to the card to create a snowy shadow.

The cute little bear was imported into my software and resized. I created a pile of snowballs in my software by layering up circles, and bringing some forward and sending others backwards. I printed out both the bear and the snowballs onto colouring cardstock, then coloured them both up using Copic pens. Both images were fussy cut out, and glued onto the white section of the circle to create a scene.

Funky foam was added to the back of the circle topper and attached the centre of the snowflake.. To complete the card I added a touch of glitter here and there.

Card #1

Card #2 - Santa & Friends
Card #3 - Santa & Friends

CARD #1 - Here's What I Did & Used
I trimmed down a piece of Christmas patterned paper and attached it to the front of a scalloped card blank leaving a slim border around the edge. I stamped the cute characters and star onto Copic friendly blending card and coloured them with Copic pens, then fussy cut them out. I printed out one of the digital papers and die cut it into a rounded square. Using the same die I cut out a piece of white card then trimmed it down with a slight curve at the top to give the impression of a snowy mound, this was glued to the bottom of the other square. The characters were then glued in place on the snowy mound. The completed topper was mounted onto a fancy die cut frame and glued onto the centre of the card front. To complete the card I added shading to the snow, and along with a touch of glitter here and there.

CARD #2 - Here's What I Did & Used
I die cut a piece of Copic friendly blending card with a large rectangle die. The sleigh image was stamped towards the bottom and the 2 sentiments were added at the top. The image was coloured with Copic pens, and when it was finished it was mounted onto a red card. Mini snowflakes cut from the same blending card were added around the image. When the topper was finished it was adhered to the front of an A5 card, which I cut down slightly. To finish the card I added gold glitter pen to the sleigh framework, and white glitter to the snow and Santa's hat.

Using the same rectangle die I cut out a piece of white card then trimmed it down with a slight curve at the top to give the impression of a snowy mound. The white piece of card was glued to the bottom of the digital paper, and then mounted onto a scalloped rectangle cut from red card. 

On Copic friendly blending card I stamped and masked several of the cute penguins to create a fun tower. The penguins were coloured with Copic pens, fussy cut out and glued on top of the snowy mound.

Lili Of The Valley - Christmas Gnomes

Morning everyone

I'm sharing the first of my Lili Of The Valley cards using some of the brand new Christmas stamps. The stamps are all clear polymer stamps and include gnomes, polar bears, penguin and much more (some of them are quite big). Please note, there are no digi stamps this time around, so this launch is perfect for the physical stampers out there. The collection launches on Create and Craft at 12 Noon on Tuesday 2nd August. You can watch in the UK on Sky 683, Freeview 85 or watch online anywhere at https://createandcraft.com (or you can watch it later online if you miss it). The gorgeous new polymer stamps will also be launched on the LOTV Etsy shop a week later as stamps.

For my trio of cards today I used the cute 'Christmas Gnome' stamps and sentiments and made them into tag cards; I used Copic pens and mostly stuck to the same colours to colour with. I will be sharing more cards over the weekend, I hope you like them. 
 
For your information, here is the link to the LOTV Etsy Store to check out all the stampsand the LOTV online store to check out the rest of their goodies.
Gnome With Wreath

Gnome With Lantern

Gnome With List

Here's What I Did
The process and colours were mostly same for all 3 tag cards - 

I trimmed down a DL white card blank to accommodate the die cut tag ensuring I left a slim border around the edge. I drew around the card blank onto patterned paper and cut it out, this was then glue to the card front.

I stamped the cute gnome and sentiment onto Copic blending card and die cut it with a tag die. The image was coloured with Copic pens, and glitter was added. The finished tag was glued flat onto the front of the card. To complete the card I added die cut snowflakes, a bow and a blue gem.
