Lili Of the Valley - Christmas Digi Stamps Sneaky Peak #2

Hi everyone

Here's another sneaky peak of one of the new digis being launched by LOTV today (18th Aug). The new release has cute snow people and Tomtes (gnomes). So for today's card, I've used one of the new hand written sentiments and one of the sweet gnomes which I coloured using pencils. Isn't he the CUTEST! 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
I trimmed down a piece of Christmassy paper and added it to the front of my card blank leaving a slim border around the edge. I imported the little gnome digi stamp  and sentiment into my graphics program, then resized it to fit my project. The image was then printed directly onto colouring card stock and die cut into a scalloped rectangle, and then coloured in using pencils. Next I cut down a piece of red mirror card and cut out the centre portion using the scalloped rectangle die to create a frame. I glued the frame to a piece of scrap card and glued the coloured in image into the aperture. The topper was then added to the card front using foam pads. 

I die cut 3 banners, one from the patterned paper and 2 from card and glued them together in varying lengths. So I could line the banners up with the scalloped edge of the topper I die cut the top edge of the banners using the same scalloped rectangle die. I glued the banners to the top of the topper.  To finish my card I added the pearls to the banner and the bottom of the card.

Here's What I Used

Prismacolor & Caran D'ache Pencils (CD)
Skin - Terracotta, Burnt Ochre, Light Peach, Peach, White / Gown & Shoes - Light Aqua, Aquamarine, 50% Warm Grey, White / Beard & Hat Trim - White, 50% Warm Grey, 70% Warm Grey, White (CD) / Sack - Poppy Red, Crimson Red, Tuscan Red, Lemon Yellow, Canary Yellow, Sunburst Yellow, White, 50% Warm Grey, 70% Warm Grey / Hat - Light Aqua, Aquamarine, 50% Warm Grey, White, Poppy Red, Crimson Red, Tuscan Red, Lemon Yellow, Canary Yellow, Sunburst Yellow / Socks - Poppy Red, Crimson Red, Tuscan Red, White, 50% Warm Grey / Presents & Holly - Poppy Red, Crimson Red, Tuscan Red, Lemon Yellow, Canary Yellow, White, 50% Warm Grey, 70% Warm Grey, Light Aqua, Aquamarine, Chartreuse, Apple Green / Ground - White, 20% Cool Grey, Silver, White (CD)

The new snow people and Tomtes (gnomes) digi stamps will be available to buy in the LOTV etsy store from Sunday 18th....so not long to wait now I will add links to the stamps once they are launched.

So for my card today, I've used one of the new hand written sentiments and one of the cute snow people, which I coloured with Copic pens. I kept the card nice and simple to allow the snowman to pop. 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.

I trimmed down a piece of pretty patterned paper from an old LOTV Christmas paper pad, and added it to the front of my card blank leaving a border around the edge. From strong white card I die cut a fancy square and added glitter to the ornate corners. The die cut was rotated 90% to create diamond and attached to the card front using foam pads.

I imported the cute snow person digi stamp  and sentiment into my graphics program, then resized it to fit my project. The image was then printed directly onto colouring card stock and die cut into a square, and then coloured in using Copic Pens. The coloured image was then added to the centre of the die cut diamond using foam pads. To finish my card I added the printed out sentiment and 4 purple gems to the ornate diamond.

Craft Consortium - It's Snome Time Launch #3

Hi everyone 💜

I hope you're having a fabulous summer....with lots of warm sunshine! If you live in the UK especially the North East you will know that I'm being sarcastic, because at the moment it's cold and cloudy and just plain blah! It's more like autumn than summer. Esh! Or because I'm making Christmas cards atm it's more like winter, but because there are gnomes involved it's all ok. Lol

Anyhow today I'm sharing another card using the brand new collection from Craft Consortium 'It's Snome Time' collection (in partnership with Helz Cuppleditch). The collection has now been launch in craft shops and here and in the USA, it will be launched on Create & Craft TV in a week's time. The beautiful collection contains adorable stamps, papers and embellishments of Snomes (snowy gnomes) and their friends. For my card today I've made a shaker using the very cute Mrs Snome from the 'Mr & Mrs Snome' stamp set, which I coloured with Copics. 

The links to the new products can be found below, or you can also go to the Craft Consortium's website using this link here. Why not sign up for update to product launches while you're there.




Here's What I Did
First I created a white scalloped card blank using folded white card and a scalloped circle die. I die cut another scalloped circle this time from red card and then die cut a circle into the centre. A frame die cut from white card was glued over the front of the aperture to create a pretty edge around it. On the back of the aperture acetate was glued into place to create a window, when this was dry foam tape was added around the aperture to create a well, ensuring there were no gaps.

A circle large enough to cover the back of the foam well and aperture was die cut from blue card and snowflakes were stamped onto it in blue ink. Silver and red star sequins were poured into the foam tape well and the blue circle was placed over the top to create the shaker. The red shaker portion was lined up and attached to the white card front.

Mrs Snome was stamped and coloured in using Copic pens, then fussy cut out. Glitter was added to her hat, and she was attached to the front of the shaker card using foam pads.

To complete the card I added white pen to some of the dots on her outfit, and a sentiment cut from red card was glued to the front of the shaker window.

I Used

Craft Consortium - It's Snow Time Launch #2

Hi everyone 💜

Today I'm sharing another card using the brand new collection from Craft Consortium 'It's Snome Time' collection (in partnership with Helz Cuppleditch). The collection has now been launch in craft shops and here and in the USA, it will be launched on Create & Craft TV in a week's time. The beautiful collection contains adorable stamps, papers and embellishments of snomes (snowy gnomes) and their friends.

Here's What I Did
I covered the front of a 6" x 6" card blank with a piece of teal card which I embossed with a snowflake embossing folder. Next I stamped the snome (snowy gnome) image onto the bottom of a square die cut piece of colouring card. The snome images was stamped again onto some masking paper and fussy cut out;, the mask was then placed over the top of the image on the colouring card.. The toadstools were stamped on the card slightly overlapping the masked snome image - this ensures that when the mask is removed the toadstools will appear behind the snome. To complete the scene I stamped the sentiment in the top left corner.

The images were coloured in using Copic pens and glitter was added to the 'snome' wording. To complete the topper, I die cut a slim border frame from the same teal card and glued it in place around the scene. The topper was then added to the card front using foam pads.

To complete the card I added white pen to some of the toadstool dots, and red gems to the bottom of the card.

Craft Consortium - 'It's Snome Time' Sneaky Peak (#1)

Hi everyone 💜

Oooo, have I got a treat for you today. I'm sharing a sneaky peak of the new collection from Craft Consortium (in partnership with Helz Cuppleditch), today and the rest of the week. The 'It's Snome Time' collection (release date and links tbc) has the most adorable stamps, papers and embellishments of snomes (snowy gnomes) and their friends. They're absolutely adorable and I love every single images....and so will you. Right, the first card I'm sharing made using the 'Robin Mischief' stamp set and I used pencils on desert storm neenah card. 

The collection will be available to buy in selected craft stores and the Craft Consortium's website very soon....so watch this space. You can also go to the Craft Consortium's website using this link here and sign up for update to product launches.



Here's What I Did
I covered the front of a 5" x 7" card blank with a piece of dark red card. Next I stamped the small toadstool image onto the bottom left of a die cut piece of desert storm colouring card. The toadstool images were stamped again onto some masking paper and fussy cut it out; the mask was then placed over the top of the image on the colouring card. The large snome image was stamped at the bottom of the card slightly overlapping the masked toadstool image - this ensures that when the mask is removed the toadstool will appear in front of the snome stamp. I stamped several snowflakes around the panel using a versamark ink to give a watermark effect to them.

The images were coloured using Prismacolor pencils and the white pencil from my Caran D'ache set. To add extra highlights I used my white pencil first, and then added colour over the top.  When the image was finished. The completed panel was attached to a piece of gold mirror card and a die cut red scalloped rectangular mat. The topper was then added to the card front using foam pads.

To complete the card I added white pen to some of the dots, and red gems in the centre of  all the snowflakes.

Lili Of The Valley - New Christmas Stamps #4

Hi there

Today I'm sharing another of the gorgeous new Lili Of The Valley Christmas digi stamps. The stamps are all so cute and have been a pleasure to colour up

For this card I used the cute digi stamp called 'Christmas Sled'. All the new Christmas stamps can be found in the LOTV Etsy store, the link is shown below the photos. To coloured this sweet stamp I used Copic pens on Neenah card, and then mounted it onto my card front. I hope you like it. x

Craft Consortium - Little Fawn & Friends #1

Hi everyone 💜

Hope you're having a fabulous Sunday, and the weather is nice enough for you to sit out and enjoy it. It's glorious here, it's nice and warm but not too hot that I can't sit in my craft room and play. So for  today's card I'm using a previously released collection from Craft Consortium - this one is called 'Little Fawn & Friends'. I've used the paper pad, a stamp sets and the beautiful coordinating enamel dots from the collection.

I stamp the bunnie image onto some colouring card and coloured it using Copic pens; the image was then die cut it into a square. The edges of the square were inked with green distressing ink and then stamped leaves using green inks. When dry the panel was attached to a green die cut square and mounted onto the front of the card using foam pads. I added a stamped sentiment (from my personal stash) to the front.  

To complete the card I added coordinating enamel dots and a little pine cone charm from the collection which I tied on with string.

I imported the bunny image into my graphics program, then resized to suit my needs. The  image was then printed directly onto colouring card stock and die cut into a square. The image was then coloured using Copic pens, and a little bit of pencil work was added over the top.  The coloured image was then mounted onto a die cut red frame and added to the front of a 5" x 5" Kraft card blank.

To finish the card I added a wooden sentiment, some twine and a few bells, plus some glitter to the snow and snowflakes.
