Milly Flower Power …and some news!

 

 

Good morning bloggers, before today’s card I have a couple of important newsy bits for you;

***

Firstly, our office and shop will be CLOSED on Thursday (21st)

You will still be able to order on the website but there won’t be anyone to take orders or queries over the telephone until we open again on Friday 22nd at 9.30am

Lucy will be still be answering all your emails during the day so if you do have a problem that will be the quickest way to reach us. You can use the ‘contact us’  form on the website or email directly admin@liliofthevalley.co.uk

The shop will be open as usual today, tomorrow and Friday 10 am –3 pm

***

Next we need to just have a little bit of a moan!

Since we have joined Pinterest we have become aware that there are an awful lot of pins of our stamped images that do not include watermarks

We’re sure that most people just do it for reference and probably don't even realise that there is a problem  …but as you know we don't produce digi images and pinning them without the watermark is against our copyright

Can we ask anyone on Pinterest to please check your boards and delete any pins that are LOTV images without watermarks. You are very welcome to pin images directly from our website that are protected by a watermark

Our Pinterest boards, the blog and the card galleries on the website contain over 1000 card samples for your inspiration and we are more than happy for you to put these onto your own boards

We will be starting to monitor this situation in order to protect our artists and the integrity of our products, if any of you that do go on Pinterest (or indeed anywhere else) notice that our images are being copied or shared we would be very grateful if you bring it to our attention. Any information that we receive will of course be treated confidentially

Many thanks for your cooperation x

Onto todays card now and this is something a bit different  …we can always rely on our Lou to think outside the box!

 

Milly Flower Power - Lou

 

 

 

Lou has used Milly Flower Power and cleverly paper pieced the flower to match the background

The sentiments are from our Everyday Grungy Messages and I love how she’s used one in the centre of the flower

The little fence is a Memory Box die that we have in our shop. It’s been heat embossed with silver powder to look like metal, a simple technique but isn’t it effective?

That’s it from me, have a lovely day everyone and make sure you stop by later to see if you were a lucky winner in our fantastic 3000 followers candy draw

Tomorrow I’ll have news for you about our next stamp release!!

  2. What a sweet card and the idea to make the fence look metal is brilliant..I will try that myself. Thanks for all the tips. I am a bit confused about the watermarks Anne as lots of the photos on the LOTV Pinboards have no watermarks? Mine is watermarked but I only did this recently and I know a lot of crafters are not sure how to do it. I am looking forward to seeing the new release...how exciting. Have a great Tuesday x
