Lili of the Valley DT mini hop

 

Good morning bloggers, hope everyone is ok this morning and thanks very much for visiting. 

Today is the 15th so that means it’s time for another of our mini blog hops. We’ve all used the same stamp to show how they can be used in many different ways. This one is from the new summer bears which are due to be released on June 25th and is called ‘posy trio’. The DT will be showing some sneaky peeks of the full set on the Ideas to Inspire blog and on their own blogs from the 18th so don’t miss those.

 

As always there are some mystery prizes along the hop so make sure you leave a comment on all the blogs you visit to be in with a chance of winning as they are drawn at random. This month we are sponsored by Lili of the Valley and Wild Orchid Crafts

 My card is a concertina fold, it’s a bit different for me but I saw one at a show and thought I’d have a go. This little stamp is perfect for this as there are 3 separate images.

 

posy trio folded

 

This is the front, it folds up and ties with some lovely white seam binding from our sponsors Wild Orchid Crafts.

Seam binding is fabulous stuff, I left this white but I always buy white because you can colour it with your copics or promarkers so it matches your work exactly.

 

 

posy trio full

posy trio right

 

I used some of my favourite Eline papers, I love this bright pink and green colour combination.

The circles were cut with spellbinders dies (standard and lacey) and the edging on the white card is a doohickey stitched border. The brads and pearls are also from Wild Orchid crafts and the flowers are done with an EK success retro flower punch. I inked all the edges with bright green and pink dauber duo inks

The sentiments are also from the new bears range which you’ll see shortly.

Apologies for the terrible pictures, the weather has been so dismal there was no light at all, even in my conservatory :o(

 

The girls taking part today are

Bev

Pops

Fleur

June

Anne – that’s me!

 

Make sure visit all the blogs, and remember if you want to be in the draw for one of our fab prizes you will need to leave a comment on each  ….also don’t forget to check back next week to see if you were a winner!

 

Have a lovely weekend and thanks again for stopping by x
