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!

Abi - Digi Stamp Boutique

Hello Everyone, 
Thank you for all your get well wishes and your support (last post!) I'm starting to feel a bit better, and have attempted a little colouring. I won't say this was a quick one as it actually took me ages, as I kept breaking off for a rest!!
So here it is, using the very sweet Abi from DigiStamp Boutique. This is just one of the images from the set........

Feeling Fed Up!

Hello Everyone, 
A few people have noticed that my blog has been a bit quiet over the last couple of weeks. Unfortunately it's because I've been quite poorly, I had a few days in hospital and I'm now home and getting stronger everyday. 
Today, I've been having a good day and being a crafter I'm itching to get colouring again. I thought I'd start by having a look at what you've all been up to......

Now I don't normally like to moan on here but I'm afraid I'm a bit miffed. I found a blogger who is copying my designs, colour, layout etc like for like. I know as crafters and bloggers we are here to inspire others and share our ideas, particularly when we are on Design Teams for companies/challenges, and let's face it, there are only so many ways you can stick paper to a card blank! I am always amazed that people want to look at my cards and I really appreciate all the feedback I get. If I inspire you to get crafty and make a card or colour an image that's brilliant BUT please don't copy my cards and enter them into blog challenges as though they are your designs.
