It’s Hoppity Hop Time :)

  Picture 006 copy  

 

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 the gorgeous new Spring stamps!
The first 6 were released last week and the remaining 11 will be available on the 30th January. There are 9 more super cute rubber stamps and also 2 new clear sets (an alphabet and some stitching borders).

You will be able to buy all the stamps on the Lili of the Valley website from midday on Wednesday 30th (UK time) and you will also be able to get them at their showroom in Leeds if you are near enough to visit

The fantastic 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 hope that you will pick up lots of ideas and inspiration along the way.

We don’t know where the prizes are so make sure that you visit them all. We will let you know tomorrow evening which were the ‘lucky’ blogs and 2 winners will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left on those 2 blogs.

Each winner will get the 2 sets of clear stamps and also 6 rubber stamps of their choice from the new designs :) 

So, what did I do then?

Picture 002 copy

…. it’s this card here. I used

Watering The Flowers

and I coloured it with Distress Inks in these colours -

Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Worn Lipstick, Fired Brick, Barn Door, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters,

- and then I outlined the image with Glamour Dust.

Picture 005 copy

An arrangement made up of  Ribbon Girl and Wild Orchid Crafts blooms with a punched heart and a little pearly star.

The papers are all from Nitwits – the FQB Perfect Pear Collection – and these are soon going to be available at Lili of The Valley as 8x8 paper packs.

Picture 003 copy

The bows are also from  The Ribbon Girl  - 15mm Shocking Pink No 72 Small Check Gingham – and I topped them with a pale lime green small spotty button and some natural button twine.
