 Morning everyone

Well it’s a special week over at Lili Of The Valley towers – it’s Designer Week. This means that as I’m part of the Lili Of The Valley Design Team I get to give you a little surprise offer - you can save 20% off any item at www.liliofthevalley.co.uk by using the coupon code JANINEQUINN20 - so Happy Shopping! I would love it if you would leave me a message in the comments to let me know if you used the voucher to treat yourself. :)

The offer lasts from 10th October until 17th October. I hope you are inspired by all my LOTV makes on my blog! To get you in the mood I'm re-sharing a Christmas card I made a back in 2019 which I still love to bits, I hope you like it too. x

I made a lovely bauble card using the 'Snowy Chums' digi stamp, which is still available in the LOTV online store. I coloured up the cute two-some using Copic pens and created the pretty sky using distress inks. Aren't they just the sweetest things....EVER! 

If you want to see the full range of Lili Of The Valley products available simply go to the LOTV Etsy Store. Enjoy!

Here's What I Did
I trimmed down a piece of gorgeous blue paper from my stash, and added it to the front of a 6" x 6" white card blank, leaving a slim border around the edge.

I die cut the bauble frame 3 times from strong white card, then stacked and glued them together to create depth. The back section of the globe was die cut and then 4 different distress inks were blended onto it. When the inks were dry, watered down white and black chalk paint was flicked over the top to look like drops of snow. Dots were also added using a white pen.

I imported the cute digi stamp into my graphics program, then resized it so it would fit inside the bauble. The image was then printed directly onto colouring card stock, and die cut using the back panel of the bauble it ensure it was the correct size. The image was coloured in using Copic pens apart from the sky, then fussy cut out around the characters.  Glitter was added to the snow floor. The seal and penguin section was glued on top of the background sky and then the white bauble frame was added over the top. To complete the bauble, the top section (cap) was die cut from blue glitter card then glued into place along with a ribbon. Snowflakes were die cut from white card and glued around the characters. Funky foam was added to the back of the bauble and then added to the centre of the card front.

To finish my card I added blue gems to the top and bottom of the card.
