Lili of the Valley Blog Hop …

 
Lili of the Valley Blog Hop – win the all new stamps!

Good morning crafters, thanks for stopping by! Today we’re holding a Lili of the Valley sneaky peek blog hop to celebrate the launch of their new Christmas Animals and Sentiment stamps!

There are 10 of the cutest animals and 4 sets of Christmas sentiments; they will be available to buy on the Lili of the Valley website from midnight tonight and don’t forget you can also get the gorgeous new patterned paper pads on there too

The fabulous Design Team are all taking part, you just need to ‘hop’ from one blog to another following the links and leave a comment on each card.
We’ve used all the stamps between us so hopefully we can give you lots of ideas and inspiration for using the new images

We don’t know where the prizes are so make sure you visit every blog. We will let you know  tonight before the stamps go on sale which were the ‘lucky’ blogs and 2 winners will be drawn at random from the comments that were left on those cards and announced before midnight.

Prize 1; A set of the brand new Christmas sentiment clear stamp sheets, 1 each of the new designs, worth £50.00

Prize 2; The full set of the new Christmas animal rubber stamps, worth £45.00


Here's a list of all the blogs taking part and remember you will need to visit them all to be in with a chance of winning;

 
Anne (that’s me)

Bev



Here’s my sneak peek card, I’ve used Snow Cute!  …and isn’t he just the cutest ‘lil penguin you ever saw


blog hop 2



I’ve used some of our new patterned papers from the Frosty Christmas pad and one of the Christmas sentiment tags which are launched tonight along with the stamps

The border is done with a Martha Stewart doily lace punch, I don’t use punches often (I love my dies) but I do really like this one and use it a lot
The circle behind the images is a Nellies die and the charm is from the Ribbon Girl.
I’ve done the snow with some liquid pearls. I’ve had a few bottles of this in different colours for years and never used them, I’ve just re-discovered them and they’re fab.
All the edges have been inked with a stormy sky distress ink and I’ve coloured him in with Copics and a touch of pencil
The ribbons are from Lili of the Valley but are only available in the shop at the moment


Hope you’re enjoying the hop – thanks for all your lovely comments and good luck with the prize draw!
