Lili Of The Valley - Panda #2

Good Morning

I'm spreading the 'panda love' again today, using another of the new 'Panda' stamps from Lili Of The Valley. As I mentioned yesterday the panda's are available as both polymer stamps and digital stamps, and can be purchased as single stamps or in bundles (see below for info). They have now launched in their store....so grab yours To colour my cute panda I again used pastel pencils as they're a really quick medium to use. I hope you like it.

For your information, here is the link to the LOTV Online  Shop and the LOTV Etsy Store to check out all the stampsFYI you can use both sites to purchase the stamps. 



Here's What I Did & Used
I trimmed down a piece of purple patterned paper to fit the front of a 6" x 6" card blank, leaving a slim border around the edge. Then glued a fancy white doily die cut into the centre. 

The panda, butterfly and sentiment was stamped onto mixed media card. Everything was coloured with pastel pencils. The finished scene was sprayed with a fixative to ensure the pastel wouldn't smudge. The scene was die cut into a circle and mounted onto a lilac scalloped frame. Funky foam was added to the back. The topper was glued to the card front. To finish the card, I added white pen to the panda's eyes and nose, and a few pearls.

Lili Of The Valley - Panda #1

Good Morning

Hi everyone, I'm back again highlighting Lili Of The Valley's brand new stamps sets. Today I'm sharing a card I've made using one of the gorgeous 'Panda' stamps. The panda's are available as both polymer stamps and digital stamps, and can be purchased as single stamps or in bundles (see below for info). They have now launched in their store. To colour my little panda I used pastel pencils, and kept the card design fresh and clean. I hope you like it.

For your information, here is the link to the LOTV Online  Shop and the LOTV Etsy Store to check out all the stampsFYI you can use both sites to purchase the stamps. 



Here's What I Did & Used
I trimmed down a piece of bright green patterned paper to fit the front of a 6" x 6" card blank, leaving a slim border around the edge.

The panda and sentiment was stamped onto mixed media card, then onto masking paper. The panda was fussy cut out and placed over the top of the first bear. The bamboo was then stamped over the top (to give the illusion that it sits behind the bear). The mask was then removed, and everything was coloured with pastel pencils. The finished scene was sprayed with a fixative to ensure the pastel wouldn't smudge. 

The scene was die cut into a square postage stamp frame and mounted onto pale green card. The topper was added to a slightly larger postage stamp frame, cut from white card. Funky foam was added to the back and glued to the card front. To finish the card, I added white pen to the panda's eyes and nose, and a few pearls.

Amanda Jane Designs - Cherry Blossom

Afternoon Everyone

Today it's my turn to share one of Amanda Jane Designs (AJD) fabulous digi stamps. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, Amanda runs a wonderful themed monthly challenge on her Facebook group (see link at the bottom of the page) and this monthly it's 'May Flowers'. You can enter your card, tag or whatever you fancy into the competition, as long as you use one of her lovely images or papers and it meets the theme. You can win lovely digi stamps as a prize. 

For this month's challenge I have made couple of floral cards. I'm sharing one today and one tomorrow. For today's card I made a mini card using 'Cherry Blossom' coloured with distress re-inkers. I hope you like it. x

Amanda has lots of  lovely digi stamp, papers and sentiments in her Etsy shop, along with some pre-coloured images and papers. Here is the link to the Amanda Jayne Designs Etsy Store to check out all the digi stamps and papers.


Here's What I Did
First I created a 11cm x 9cm rectangle frame in my software. The cherry blossom images were imported into the software twice and arranged around the bottom of the frame by rotating and flipping them. Once I was happy with the look I deleted the rectangle and printed the scene onto watercolour cardstock in grey to create a no-line look. This was then trimmed to the correct size. 

The top section was die cut diagonally with a 'Friend' edger die. The flower images were coloured with distress re-inkers. With the flowers covered I added a few splashes of pink paint. 

I cut another rectangle to the same size as the previous one, and inked it up with pink and red ink. Water splashes were added to give it texture. When the ink was dry the floral panel was added to the front. The word 'friend was die cut from watercolour card twice; one sentiment was painted with the same pink/red ink used previously, then glued together. The die cut was then glued in place alongside a stamped sentiment. The completed topper was added to the mini card front - 12.5cm x 10.5cm. 

To finish off the card, I added punched out pink mini butterflies along with a few gems. 

Here's What I Used 
Digi Stamp: Cherry Blossom

Distress Re-inkers: Flowers, Friend & Butterflies Spun Sugar, Saltwater Taffy, Festive Berry, Carved Pumpkin / Stems - Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn / Splashes Spun Sugar

Other: 12.5cm x 10.5cm White Card Blank, Ecoline Watercolour Card (11cm x 9cm), 'Friend' Edger Die & Stamp Set (Penny Black), Mini Butterfly Punch, Gems, White Pen, Water, Yellow Gouache Paint, Black Ink, Glue, Double Sided Tape

The completed scene was printed onto directly onto white hammered card and die cut into a rectangle, then mounted onto a postage stamp frame cut from pink card. To complete the card I glued the completed topper onto the card front and added a little glitter.

Lili Of The Valley - Birthday Penguins

 Afternoon Everyone

Today I'm sharing a cute penguin from Lili Of The Valley. This little sweetheart is available in both a digi stamp set and a polymer stamp set, both called 'Birthday Penguins' (see the links below the photos). For my card today I used the digi version, and combined her with a digital watercolour background and splashes, and a 'Happy birthday' sentiment. To coloured her up I used my distress re-inkers. She was a dream to colour...so easy. I just love how this one turned out - it's so pretty.

For your information, here is the link to the LOTV Online  Shop and the LOTV Etsy Store to check out all the stampsFYI you can use both sites to purchase the stamps. 




Here's What I Did & Used
I trimmed down a piece of pink patterned paper to fit the front of a 6" x 6" scalloped card blank, leaving a slim border around the edge. Using my software I imported the background and splatter detail and added the cute penguin over the top along with the sentiment, everything was resized to fit my project. The complete scene was printed directly onto watercolouring paper and die cut into a square. 

The scene was coloured with distress re-inkers, and white pen was added to the party hat. When everything was dry I added it to a scalloped square mat cut from pink card. To complete the card I added funky foam to the back of the completed topper, and glued to the centre of the card front. Glitter was added along with a few pearls.

Lili Of The Valley - James Fishing

Morning Everyone

Yep it's me again...:) I'm back again to share with you another sneak peek of the wonderful  James Bear  from Lili Of The Valley, this time he's fishing. As I mentioned yesterday there are 2 brand new James stamps - 'James Fishing' and 'James Gardening' which will be available as both digi stamps and in a polymer stamp set. The polymer stamps sets will contain the new stamps plus a few oldies - the sets are called - 'James Take It Easy' and 'James Thinking Of You'. The sets are on advance order and will be shipped from the 7th April. Definitely check them out, they're all simply adorable!

For my card today I'm using the sweet 'James Fishing' polymer stamp, and I've coloured him up using my distress re-inkers. I've used a similar layout as yesterday as I'm in love with my new edger dies. 

For your information, here is the link to the LOTV Online  Shop and the LOTV Etsy Store to check out all the stampsFYI you can use both sites to purchase the stamps. 




Here's What I Did & Used
I trimmed a piece of watercolour card down to 4½" x 6½" and die cut the top section with the 'Hello' edger die. The lovely James Bear was stamped on the bottom left of the card, and coloured up with distress re-inkers. A sentiment was stamped with black ink just below the cut out section at the top of the card. A postage stamp rectangle frame cut from green card was glued flat to the front of the card. 

I die cut another rectangle and inked up the top section using blue, green and brown ink and added some green splatters to give it texture. When the ink was dry it was added to the green frame on the card front. The painted scene was mounted flat onto the card front and a little gold paint was added to the fishing rod.

To finish the card, the word 'hello' was die cut twice from green card then glued together, this was placed in the corresponding space on the top section of the card.

Lili Of The Valley - James Gardening

Afternoon Everyone

Well as I promised I'm back with more James Bear stamps from Lili Of The Valley. In fact there are 2 brand new stamps - 'James Fishing' and 'James Gardening' which will be available as both digi stamps and in a polymer stamp set. The polymer stamps sets will contain both the new stamps and a few oldies and are called - 'James Take It Easy' and 'James Thinking Of You' - the sets are on advance order and will be shipped from the 7th April. They are all adorable!

Anyhow, for today's card I've used the 'James Gardening' polymer stamp and coloured him up using my distress re-inkers. I created a CAS card by teaming up the cute James stamp with a large edge die. 

For your information, here is the link to the LOTV Online  Shop and the LOTV Etsy Store to check out all the stampsFYI you can use both sites to purchase the stamps. 



Here's What I Did & Used
I trimmed a piece of watercolour card down to 4½" x 6½" and die cut the top section with the 'Happy' edger die. The lovely James Bear was stamped on the bottom of the card and coloured up with distress re-inkers and pencils; blue and brown distress ink was applied around the edges to create a vignette. A sentiment was stamped just below the cut out section at the top of the card. 

A piece of the same red card was trimmed down to approx 4¾ x 6½" and using a heart stencil I applied brown distress ink right across the card to add a kittle extra interest. When the ink was dry it was added to the card front. The painted scene was mounted flat onto the card front.

To finish the card, the word 'happy' was die cut twice from red card then glued together, this was then placed in the corresponding space along with a some tiny flowers.
