Lili of the Valley Challenge and a DT Sneak Peek


I have 2 cards to post on here today firstly as its Thursday my usual Lili of the Valley Challenge Dt card, and then a card from a fabulous new release by one of my crafting heros, you will have to scroll down to read more of that!!!

Before I get down to my card I have some great news for you Lili of the Valley are now stocking fabulous Super Smooth card for stamping and colouring with Copics and Promarkers,  I have been using this card for all my Copic colouring and cannot recommend it highly enough, you know how hard it is to get a really good quality card that enables you to blend  perfectly this card really does and it is such a reasonable price too, 50 A5 sheets for £5 if you would like to purchase some of this card just click HERE to go direct to the page.


So here is my Lili of the Valley DT Card




Wow have we got a great sketch for you on Lili of the valley Challenge this week, its another from our very own Bev and we also have a £10 Voucher to spend on the Lili of the Valley website for one lucky winner.  I have used the gorgeous Christmas Candle stamp for this card, I love how she looks in pastel shades.    The papers are all from a Nitwits Collection  Download  “Joyful Hearts” loads of pastel Christmas papers on this one. The Snowflake border and large Snowflake are punched with my new Martha Stewart Punches and the sentiment is a magnolia Stamp from last years Christmas collection.


015 Copics Used:

Boo, B000, B0000, R81, RV000, RV0000, E71, E70, C1, C00


Now here is my other news:

New Stamp range and other goodies, launch

One of my Crafting heros  for a long time has been Sheena Douglas  I so admire her style and wish I had half of her talent so you can imagine how excited I was when she asked me to create some cards for the packaging of her new stamp collection, GULP!!!!!!!  I really wasn’t sure if I could do it our styles are so different, but that is what Sheena  wanted as it helped to show how versatile her new stamps are, so with great trepidation I said yes and I am so pleased I did the stamps were a pleasure to work with and made me work outside my comfort zone.    Thank you so much for asking me Sheena and for having faith in me.

I am so happy to be able to let you all know that she is launching her new range of stamps (and more exciting stuff ) on Create and Craft on Saturday Morning at 8am and 10am.   This is not to me missed……. Sheena has recorded a fantastic you tube demo showcasing one of the stamps, and when you see it you’re gonna love it, pop over and have a look here.



This is a small image from one of the stamp plates, I am not going to give you any more clues as to what is on the stamp plates, you will have to watch the show.  I have coloured the Violets with Copics, the Doily behind the image is a Marianne Designs Die, as are the swirls.  The paper is a sheet from a Websters Pages 6”x6” pad, and I thought it a perfect match for the stamp.  the lace is from Wild Orchid Crafts. I will show you another sneak peek from this fantastic collection tomorrorw.



If you are still here thanks for looking, sorry it was such a long one.

Hi Jacqui, Stunning cards! The LOTV card is adorable - such a sweet image and gorgeous colours.

Sheena's images are lovely and your card is beautiful. The Webster's Pages paper work so well with this image.

Like you I was very worried about using Sheena's beautiful images because they are so different to my normal 'cute' style but I really enjoyed working with them.
