James-Daisy - Lili of the Valley DT

Good Morning Everyone, 
I thought I'd have a little break from Christmas cards and I automatically turned to one of my all time favourite Lili of the Valley stamps.  This is James-Daisy.
I've coloured him with promarkers and the background papers are from my drawer of bits and pieces! I've used a Die namics flower die and Lili of the Valley sentiment tags.

It's Emma's birthday today..10 already...where has the time gone! I need to go and finish her birthday cake so I'll be round to catch up with you all later.

Christmas sentiment stamps - Lili of the Valley DT

Good Morning Everyone, 
Today's cards are made using the soon to be released stamps from Lili of the Valley. There is a range of sentiment stamps and accessory stamps coming out on Monday 21st August. 
I've used various stamp from an A5 stamp set. These are all small 4" cards.

The papers are from Papermania and the tree and sentiment are both from the new set. I coloured the tree with promarkers and added a papermania star gem at the top of the tree.



The snowflake stamp and sentiment are from the new set. I don't have any coloured inks so I have used promarkers to colour the rubber before stamping. You have to work quite quickly as the promarker ink dries before you get the chance to stamp!

For this card I stamped a couple of the trees from the new set, again using my promarkers for stamping. I also added a little bit of glitter to the star.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my little blog and for all your comments and encouragement.
Have a lovely weekend.

Chalkboard Christmas Greeting - Lili of the Valley DT

Good Morning Everyone, 
Today's card is made using one of the soon to be released stamps from Lili of the Valley. There is a range of sentiment stamps and accessory stamps coming out on Monday 21st August. 
I've used 'Chalkboard Christmas Greeting' for today's card.

I've embossed the stamp with gold embossing powder and used gold frantage on the background card. This is way out of my comfort zone (not a promarker in sight!) but I did enjoy doing something different and managed to get glittery bits over everything!
I've used a spellbinders poinsettia die and a Marianne Creatable ivy die.

These new stamps are so useful, you're going to love them!
