Meet James

Lili of the Valley are helping to satisfy your Christmas stamping desires early with some fantastic festive images!! There will be over 40 designs released in the next couple of months including some gorgeous Kids Nativity stamps which you won’t be able to resist, loads of traditional Christmas characters and scenes which are just so cute, plus Polar Bears, Pups and Penguins and more of their fantastic Bear, now called James! The first set of 15-20 designs are released next Wednesday 14th July so look out for sneak peaks and beautiful cards on all the LOTV Design Team’s Blogs!




I have inked up James the Bear - Pile of Presents and coloured him with my poor neglected Prismas, isn´t he just adorable! He was released on 2nd of July and is available on the new A5 stamps sheets which are currently for sale at only £12!! It's crazy really when you think that there is over £18 worth of stamps on there - but they´re part of Lili of the Valley's Midsummer Madness 10 days which is running from 2nd - 12th July, so not long left before you can grab this bargain.

I cut him out with my nesties then added the necessary sparkle with glamour dust. Papers are DCWV, sentiment by See D, ribbons from stash and roses ofcourse from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Challenges:

Christmas Stampin´All Year Long - Free Challenge

Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club - A Very Beary Merry Christmas

Friday Sketchers - Sketch

Winter Wonderland - Twas the Night Before Christmas
