Oooh Arrrr, It's A Hoppity Hop :)

 

Picture-006web

Good morning sweet peeps - hope you are all OK today and thanks for stopping by :)

Today we are holding a Lili of the Valley design team blog hop to celebrate the launch of their gorgeous new Vintage Boy stamps. We've been sneakie peeking them for the last few days or so - have you chosen your favourite yet?

There are 8 of the cutest images and they will be perfect for those hard to make cards for boys and men and they will be available to buy on the website from midday on Monday 6th May (UK time). You will also be able to get them at the Lili of the Valley shop in Leeds on Saturday (4th) if you are near enough to visit. And if you are near, do come and say howdy cos I will be over there doing my recipe box thing :)

So all the  fabulous LOTV design team are all joining in and you just need to ‘hop’ from one blog to another, following the links, and leave a comment on each card. And you will hopefully pick up some inspiration and ideas along the way for using the new images

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

There will be 2 prize winners, each winning the full set of 8 new stamps

So, what did I do then?

 Picture-001web

Well I think I saved my favourite image of this release until today.
I love them all but being a country girl meself I especially love this little farmer Giles here and he is called

In The Country

and I gave him the Copics treatment with these colours -

Skin - E000, E00, E11, E13, R00, R02
Hair - E35, E39
Clothes - E41, E43, E50, YG00, YG95, YG99
Gate - E31, E33, E35, E39, E47, E50
Wall - W00, W1, W3, W5, W7
Dog - C00, C1, C3,C5, C7, Black
Ground - E41, E42, E43, W3, W5, W7

I used quite a few (you probably noticed!!) so I hope that by breaking it all down into smaller areas it's easier to follow, otherwise it all gets in a bit of a jumble!!

 

 Picture-004web

The papers are from a Bazzill LICORICE 6 x 6 Paper Multi-Pack and a bit of left over My Minds Eye Stella & Rose

I used 4 different dies and they are -

Cheery Lynn Buttons D101
Memory Box Grasslands Border
Memory Box Lavish Branch
Spellbinders Decorative Labels 22

 

Picture-005web

Where would I be without me Safmat!!
I'm wayyy too chicken to stamp directly onto a finished image!!

Hi Dawny,
Wonderful card - I'm buying the whole set of these new boy images!
I love all of the dies you have used. Can't get over how real the button looks!
Beautiful colouring of course :o)
I have wanted to ask you this question for a very long time. This may be the wrong time as you have so many comments - but you are always talking about safmat.
Is it possible to buy these sentiments somewhere? I have no idea where to look.
Big Hugs, Candy
