Morning morning morning! hope you all had a lovely weekend
I’m nearly at 300 followers so make sure as you stop by that you are a follower and I’ll have a candy draw when I get to 300. Thanks so much to all of you who visit me regularly, I know I’m a bit sporadic with my posts and I do appreciate your support
Today we are holding a Lili of the Valley design team blog hop to celebrate the launch of their gorgeous Pretty Vintage stamps
There are 26 new clear stamp sets and it’s a fabulous mix of backgrounds, sentiments, quotes, tags and more...
They keep up perfectly with the current trend for all things vintage and grungy whilst still retaining a bit of the feminine charm that you’ve come to expect from Lili of the Valley!
The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midnight (12am) on Wednesday 12th June (UK time)
The LOTV design team are all joining in and you may have noticed a new name on the list
We’re all thrilled to welcome our new teamie ...it’s the very fabulous Mary J
You just need to ‘hop’ from one blog to another following the links and leave a comment on each card, these stamps are a little bit different so hopefully we can give you lots of ideas and inspiration along the way for using the new images
There is an amazing prize up for grabs on this hop, we don’t know where it is hidden so do make sure you that you visit and comment on every blog
We will let you know tomorrow evening which was the ‘lucky’ blog and a winner will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left on that blog
The prize is a full set of the Pretty Vintage stamps...
…that’s 26 A5 sheets, one each of all the new designs, and it’s worth a massive £325
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 as we don’t know where the prize is hidden;
Anne (that’s me!)
Here’s my card and I’ve used one of the new Statement stamps…
This one is from the set called ‘Fabulous’ I stamped it in Wild Honey distress ink
I used the same ink along with Weathered Wood to make the background paper using some swirls and dots from the new Grunge Swirls set
The lovely little butterflies are from a set that you do not want to miss, it’s called Grunge Elements
I stamped them onto watercolour paper, coloured them in and then embossed with clear powder and they turn out like stained glass
There are 3 sizes of them on the sheet along with a fab clock, leaves, a key and loads of other useful bits
Hope you like it!
Don’t forget to stop by the Ideas to Inspire blog tomorrow evening when you can find out who the lucky winner is of this fantastic prize
Enjoy the hop… and good luck!
