Hi Folks,

Another beautiful day!!!

Doesn’t everything just look and feel so different when the sun is out. And it’s the weekend, so everything is wonderful 🙂

Anyhow, down to the business at hand.

Hi Folks.

Well, it has finally stopped blowing a gale and we have been having a couple of days glorious sunshine. During those wet, blustery days, I had my New Stampin’ Up! Catalogue to cheer me. I can’t put it down!!! If you would like your very own copy (U.K only I’m afraid – so sorry) just email me to cardcraftsbylilli@gmail.com and I will get one in the post to you. I would ask however that you only request a copy if you plan to purchase from me as obviously there is a cost to myself to purchase these catalogues in the first place. 🙂 Thank you. x

In celebration of all above I’m sharing a bright, colourful little card that was inspired by the very talented Michelle Zindorf. I just love the depth of colour in this. I hope you like my interpretation of it. Do check out my video tutorial and feel free to leave me some feedback. I would love to hear from you.

Details of project and materials are below along with a handy link to my online shop to help you easily purchase your goodies to make this. If you’ve any queries, just drop me a comment and I will get back to you as soon as I can. 🙂

Summer Silhouettes: That Chocolate Box look.

Hi Folks.

Another quick card (well, for me, it’s quicker than the cards that I would normally do) 😉

I’ve only just purchased this stamp set and this is my first play with it. And of course, I’ve fallen in love with it and this colour combination is probably my favourite. It’s soooooo easy to create a beautiful stamped image so you’ve got to get this if you don’t have it already. What do you think of it?

Painted Petals: Friends become our chosen Family

Hi Folks,

I hope you’ve all had a lovely Easter Break. Well I thought I would give you a break from Easter Bunnies and do something totally different. This is a quick card I’ve made as a gift for a lifetime friend. It’s a relatively simple card however it’s great fun to do and I love the distressed effect of the spritzing. Design credit for this card goes to Julie Davison. I had noticed her card on Pinterest and just loved it. What do you think of my take on it? (and don’t forget to check out the quick video tutorial below)

I used my inkpad to distress the little plaque and sprayed with a silicone sealant.

 I love the perfect coordination of Stampin’ Up! products. I think my little teddy agrees 😉

To make the video shorter, I tried a new format (in other words I did very little talking lol). I would love your feedback on it as I’m not at all sure. 🙂

I would love to be your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator so click here to view shop 🙂

Happy Bunny: – Screen card – the joys of spring

Hi Folks,

Welcome to another video blog.

Whilst this video uses a brayer technique, if you are completely new to ‘brayering’, I would advise you check out my Sheltering Tree video, which explains the technique in more depth. I will, when I get an opportunity, create a ‘How to ….’ page to cover techniques and tools. 🙂

In the meantime, I just can’t stop playing with this little stamp. I love it so much!

Whilst the stamp is sold specifically as an Easter stamp it is easily adapted for many other occasions and I’ve enjoyed having a little play around with it. I hope you enjoy it too.

Drop me a quick comment and let me know what you think. I would love to hear from you.

Don’t forget to check out the video tutorial too! 🙂

This little bunny is more versatile that you would think :)
