Yes, I have some fab news - I've been invited to join the Lili of the Valley design team - woo hoo! I love their sweet, sweet stamps but haven't really used them much as I have so much else to play with. But when I was asked to make some samples with my CAS style I enjoyed playing with them so much that I was happy to then be invited to join the very talented team!
Today is my debut and we are also holding a Lili of the Valley design team blog hop to celebrate the launch of their gorgeous Pretty Vintage stamps. Vintage, you say - but I thought I had joined for my CAS style! Well actually I think I managed to keep to my style and still loved playing with them! There are 26 new sets and they will be available to buy on the website from midnight (12am) on Wednesday 12th June (UK time)
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
Pretty impressive, huh?! So, for a chance to win this fabulous prize you need to visit everyone on the hop and leave a comment along the way.
I really did enjoy playing with the stamps, so much so that I not only made one card, but three! And I have more half made that I'll be able to share with you over the coming weeks! So you may want to get a cuppa while I show you my makes! So without further waffle, here is my first make....
I am really pleased with how this one turned out. I used the butterfly and leaf stamp from Grunge Elements, a sentiment from the Pretty Grungy Good Times set and the papers are the LOTV Petal Fresh collection. I used a selection of Versamagic inks to give a softer look and added a bit of texture for interest.
For my second card I used a stamp from the Vintage Background Script set (using Versafine Smokey Grey ink), the leaf and corner stamp from the Grunge Swirls set, the butterflies and postage stamp from the Grunge Elements and a sentiment from the Quotables Go For It set.
I hope you like my first makes for LOTV! You should have come from sweet Lou and you now need to hop off to the lovely Mindy. If you need to start from the beginning or get lost along the way, go to the LOTV blog Ideas to Inspire. 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
