Lili Of The Valley - Christmas Launch 2 - Sneak Peak #3

 Hi There Everyone

Again I have another wonderful sneaky peaks of the new Lili Of The Valley Christmas digi goodies which launch tomorrow - 9th September. You will love all the new characters and scenes, as well as fabulous new digital papers. As mentioned in my last post the new LOTV images are different this time around as the digi stamps are in 3 different versions - PNG (cutout without a box), PNG (cutout inside a box - which is contained on a large rectangle) and as a JPG. Please read my previous post for an explanation of how the new images work and for more information.

As you can see my card today is using the same 'Bears & Snowman' cutout boxed version I used yesterday, but this time I have used a pretty pink digital paper behind it from the 'Coral & Teal' set. I wanted to show how different an images can look by using a different paper behind it. I coloured the scene in with Copic pens and added a sentiment from a previous launch.
______ XXX _____
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 stampsand the LOTV online store to check out the rest of their goodies.

Here's What I Did 
First I printed my sheet of coral pink digital paper onto good quality printer paper. The paper was then used it to cover the front of a 6" x 6" white card blank, leaving a slim border around the edge. 

Using my graphics software I imported the digi paper I used previously and then imported the snowman and bears digi stamp. I moved the image around until I was happy with the positioning of the dotty snowflake paper, then added my sentiment in the snowy area. When I was happy with everything I printed the scene directly onto my colouring card, then die cut it into a scalloped square. The image was coloured in using Copic pens, and when it was finished funky foam was glued to the back. Glitter was added to the hat trims and snow.

I die cut a large snowflake frame from white card and glued it flat to the centre of the card front. The finished topper was attached the centre of the snowflake frame. To finish the card I added white pearls around the card.

Here's What I Used     (links will be added after the launch)  
Digital Stamp: Bears & Snowman 
Digital Paper: Coral & Teal Set

Copic Pens: Snowman - 0, C0, C1, C2, Y15, Y38 / Bears - E31, E33, E53, C3, C5, 100 / Blue Clothing - B0000, B000, B00, B02, B04, B05, C0, C1, C2, YG00, YG01 / Snow - C0, C1

Lili Of the Valley - Christmas Launch 2 - Sneak Peak #2

 Hi Everyone

I'm continuing my sneaky peaks of the new Lili Of The Valley Christmas digi goodies. as mentioned in my previous post the 2nd collection of Christmas digi stamps launches on 9th September. The new images includes lot of bears, snowmen, characters, sentiment labels, alphas and digital papers. You will fall in love with the fabulous new images as well as the gorgeous papers. The new LOTV images are different this time around as the digi stamps are in 3 different versions - PNG (cutout without a box), PNG (cutout inside a box - which is contained on a large rectangle) and as a JPG. 

New Digi Designs
For my card today I have used the cutout boxed version of the 'Bears & Snowman', plus one of the new digi sentiment labels and a digi paper from the 'Frozen Snowflakes' set behind it. To explain the PNG cutout images - on both version the characters are solid but the area around the characters has been cut away. this means the area around the image is missing which allows you to add one of the digital papers behind it to create the background sky etc. The whole scene can then be printed off as one piece onto your colouring card. Alternatively, you can print the scene directly onto your own patterned paper and colour it up as normal (but please bear in mind that your paper will need to be suitable to colour onto). What this means that in both cases you to add a background sky to your image without colouring it in. Clever eh!

LOTV are in the process of creating a tutorial and video to make it easier for everyone to understand. 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 help. Please email me at: jsnine.quinn@gmail.com

Here's What I Did 
First I printed my sheet of digital paper onto good quality printer paper. The paper was then used it to cover the front of a 6" x 6" white card blank, leaving a slim boarder around the edge. 

Using my graphics software I imported the digi paper I used previously and then imported the snowman and bear digi stamp.  I moved the image around until I was happy with the positioning of the snowflake paper, then added my sentiment. When I was happy with everything I printed the scene directly onto my colouring card, then die cut it into a square. The image was coloured in using Copic pens, and when it was finished funky foam was glued to the back. Glitter was added to the hat trims, snow and snowflakes as well as the sentiment label.

I die cut a pretty holly frame from white card and glued it flat to the centre of the card front. The square topper was attached the centre of the holly frame. To finish the card I added pink pearls around the sides of the frame.

Lili Of The Valley - Christmas Launch 2 - Sneak Peak #1

Morning Everyone

I hope you're all well and keeping safe, and doing your best to ride out the pandemic. Myself and my family are doing our upmost to safe safe and healthy, while trying to get to grips with the new 'normal'.  Well after a few days of pretty rubbish weather here in the UK, I think we all need something to brighten our day, so I have some new Lili Of The Valley Christmas goodies to share with you.Yes, LOTV are launching the 2nd collection of Christmas digi stamps very soon.

The Collection
It includes lot of bears, snowmen, characters, sentiments and digital papers all in different designs. The difference with this launch is that for the first time LOTV have created 2 x PNG character images as well as JPG images. The 2 PNG images have a cut out section so that a digital paper can be placed behind it and to create a background. Alternatively you can print directly onto your own patterned paper. The main body of the characters are white you can simply print the whole image with the background paper onto your colouring cardstock and colour it the images as normal. The lovely ladies LOTV are in the process of creating a written tutorial and video to make it easier for everyone to understand. 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 help. Please email me at: jsnine.quinn@gmail.com

Right onto my card, so today I'm sharing one of the digi stamps, some digital letters and one of the papers from the new collection. I used the 'Beary Merry Christmas' stamp, the 'Festive Message' letters and a paper from the 'Modern Christmas' set. I used Copic pens to colour with.

The image was coloured in using Copic pens and when it was finished it was attached to a green scalloped mat. I added musical notes around the image using a black fineliner pen along with a few yellow glitter stars.

I added snow to the background by adding white pencil dots and larger dots using a white pen.

I hope you're all keeping safe and well. Well I'm doing my best to stay safe while still going shopping and meeting up with friends. It's so hard to keep the balance between being cautious and being in a state of paranoia isn't it. But it's the new 'normal' so I guess we all just have to do what we need to do, I just everyone else would do it too. 

Anyhow onto something more uplifting, I'm sharing one of my cards using a new digi stamp from the new Lili Of The Valley Christmas 2020 collection which launches tomorrow (14th August). For my card today I used 'Penguin Trio 2' and 'Christmas Circular Sentiment' (plain version).  To colour the image I used my Copic pens with some new Super Smooth colouring card that LOTV are also launching.

Hi everyone

Happy Monday, today I have another of the sweet 'Teatime Party Initials' digi stamps from Lili Of The Valley, as you can tell I love this collection. I think the collection is so cute and so versatile, they look perfect with or without a sentiment and can be combined together.  There is also a set which includes lots of extra sweet rabbits and mice and more.  For my card today I chose the letter 'V' and Prismacolour pencils to colour with. 

FYI, if you struggle using digi stamps or haven't got a suitable software package on your computer then why not 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). I have 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 stampsand the LOTV online store to check out the rest of their goodies.


Here's What I Did
First I added a piece of pretty pink heart paper to the front of a 6" x 6" white card blank, leaving a slim border around the edge. In the centre of the card front a thin die cut square border frame was added.

Using my graphics software I imported the sweet 'V' image with the little mice along with a sentiment from a previous collection, I resized then both to fit my project. The image was printed directly onto colouring paper, and die cut it into a circle. The image was coloured in using Prismacolor pencils and mounted onto a fancy die cut circle mat. Funky foam was glued to the back of the topper and attached to the centre of the card front, in the middle of the square frame.

To finish the card I added plus a few pearls in different sizes.

Lili of the Valley - Tea Time Party #3

Afternoon everyone

Today I have another of the gorgeous Lili Of The Valley digi stamp from the recent 'Teatime Party Initials' collection.  I absolutely adore this collection, I just think it's so sweet. The collection includes lots of sweet rabbits and mice with letters of the alphabet plus lots of little extras. The stamps are perfect for all occasions, especially birthdays and thank you's. For my card today I chose the letter 'P' and Prismacolour pencils to colour with.

Here's What I Did
First I added a piece of blue checked paper to the front of a 6" x 6" white card blank, leaving a slim border around the edge.

Using my graphics software I imported the cute little 'P' image along with a sentiment from a previous collection, I resized then both to fit my project. The image was printed directly onto colouring paper (a new one for me), and die cut it into a indented square. The image was coloured in using Prismacolor pencils and mounted onto a fancy die cut square mat. Funky foam was glued to the back of the topper and attached to the centre of the card front.

To finish the card I added plus a few pearls in different sizes.
