I regularly post cards that I make for friends and family. As this is my 35 Wedding Anniversary – who would believe it I wanted to make a quick card for my husband who loves all cards I make for him.
This one was made using another Lili of the Valley stamps, James the Bear, which this time I bought the digital download to use. Coloured him in using grey Promarkers and layered onto Nitwits backing paper.
Guilty as charged. I have not written for a while, but have been busy making cards. On this dull dreich day, I thought I would share this thank you card made for a friend. I thought that I would also enter it in to the Lili of the Valley March Challenge on Facebook.
Using the Cupcake stamp, I coloured in with Promarker pens, Nitwits paper background paper, spellbinders were used to cut the layers and paper flowers added to finish it off.
Hope you are having a sunnier warmer day than us. I promise that I will share more designs with you soon.
LOTV November Facebook Challenge
Having entered the LOTV Facebook Monthly Challenge regularly, this was one that stretched my abilities. Having never made a card with specific colours, the LOTV Facebook November Challenge wanted to bring together colours to commemorate Remembrance Sunday. This time I did not have a card ready and waiting to fit the challenge so had to look through my paper stash to see what was available. I picked three different LOTV stamps as I was still not sure what the theme was going to be. I found Nitwits Polar paper which I though had all the colours I needed, background plain paper, Promarker pens and WOW Glitter. These would be perfect to make a Christmas Card using James the Bear with tinsel.
Hope you like the result.
LOTV James the Christmas Bear
Still cannot quite get in to the groove to make Christmas cards. Made one before, but saw the competition on Lili of the Valley Facebook Challenge which this time is Christmas. So I decided to enter (again)
I just love James the Bear – whether it is for a Birthday, Christmas or just a Get Well card. He is so cute. This one was made using Chilli Red ProMarker a tough of glitter and layered on to NitWit Polar Pals paper.
Stamping Bella – Uptown Girl – Bentley
As with many of my cards they are made for a specific person in mind. This one was made as I had just received my new Sue Wilson Shadow Box Lattice Die set and was dying to try different way with it. To go with it I stamped and cut out the Stampin Up Bella Uptown Girl Bentley, coloured in with Promarkers and used Nitwits paper to make the skirt.
To make the lattice, I cut it out twice and layered it to create a shadow effect.
For the shadow lattice frame, cut out and layered I cut out white linen card.
Lili of the Valley Challenge
I love the fact that Lili of the Valley have a monthly challenge on their Facebook page. I was lucky enough to win in the June challenge, but want to enter this one for their August challenge.
Sending love was a card made using Promarkers to colour the bear and Nitwits papers used for the background.
