Lili of the Valley - Kitten Cuddles

So many beautiful stamps, so little time. That's how I feel about Lili of the Valley stamps. This image is one from their latest release and she's named "Kitten Cuddles".

I colored this image with Copics and used an assortment of dies including Magnolia, Stampin' Up and Spellbinders. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The beautiful button in the middle of the bow is from my dearest friend, Lillian, who sent me a sheet of these. All different words--all different colors, but all have the clear acrylic surface over the words. This one worked out perfect due to the colors of this card. Thank you, Lillian! You can always click on a picture on my blog and have it expand so you can see more detail.

Here's a closer view of her:

This was my first attempt at a card that was not square. Most of my cards are 5.5x5.5 or 6x6 and making a scallop edge on this was something different for me.

  3. Oh my how sweet. I love the image and you have put it all together so beautifully. I love your colors and DP. The shaped cards are so great. I am thinking I need to get something bigger than my big shot to make these.

  6. Gail this is gorgeous, love all the detail an the image is so sweet.
    PS thanks for the comments on my blog, and just to answer your question on how I did the background on Tilda, I stamped an extra image of Tilda (an kept for next time), then I stamped the image I wanted and coloured her, then I placed the extra uncoloured Tilda over the top, lining it up to cover the coloured one with repositionable tape to hold in place and then I stamped my castle image over her, then removed the extra Tilda and there's my nice coloured one un touched with the background....easy peasy :)

  7. Wow Gail, I love the shape of this one, very impressed with it! I understand exactly how you feel about lotv stamps. Have a wonderful day hon, hugs xx
