Good morning lovely crafters, how are you today?
We’ve got the first hectic week back at work nearly out of the way, the trimmings are packed up until next year and everything is back to some sort of normality. Now I need to get back into healthier eating habits and lose the few pounds that crept on over Christmas!
We have the first Lili of the Valley stamp launch of 2014 this weekend. Our fabulous design team have all made cards to show them off and we’re having a hop with 2 chances for you to win the full set
There are 10 of the cutest new designs featuring everyone’s favourite James the Bear and some more of the adorable Jack, Patch and Puss
The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midday (UK time) on Monday 13th January and also in the shop this Saturday if you’re near enough (we’re open 10 – 4)
Just ‘hop’ from one blog to another following the links and leave a comment on each card, hopefully we can give you lots of ideas and inspiration for using these cute new images
As always we have some hidden prizes along the way, we don’t know where they are so do be sure to visit and comment on every blog
We will let you know on Monday morning which were the ‘lucky’ blogs and the winners will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left on those blogs
We have 2 full sets of the new stamps to give away, 2 lucky winners will each get all 10 new designs
Here's a list of all the blogs taking part, and remember that you will need to visit them all and leave a comment on each one to have the best chance of winning;
Anne (that’s me!)
Here’s my card and I used one of the Jack, Patch and Puss stamps
This one is called Let’s Celebrate and I wanted to use some bright cheerful colours …they look like they’re having such a fun time at their party!
Here’s everything I used;
K & Co papers
Kort & Godt rolled roses
My Minds Eye gems
Doohickey border die
Penny Black heart string die
Tulle (lots of it, you can’t really see on the picture)
I’m still practising with the distress inks, I actually cannot believe how long I spent colouring this one image, I daren’t tell you, but I think I’m getting a feel for them now. I was trying to blend them like the markers which I’ve used for so long but it’s a completely different technique and it’s taken a while to get used to…
Right, enough chit chat I know you’re itching to see what else we have on the hop …next stop is the fabulous Becky
If you get lost along the way just go back to the Ideas to Inspire blog and pick it up from where you were
Finally, don’t forget to stop by the Ideas to Inspire blog on Monday morning when you can find out who the lucky winners were of the prizes before the stamps go on sale
Enjoy the hop everyone, good luck!
