Good morning everyone and thanks for stopping by!
Today we are holding another of our design team blog hops to celebrate the launch of the new Christmas stamps
This is the first set in the 2013 Christmas collection and is an adorable mix of 16 cute characters which we think you are going to LOVE!
The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midday on Thursday July 25th (UK time) along with some fabulous new art pads and patterned papers
The LOTV design team are all joining in and you may have noticed that there is another new name on the list, we’re all thrilled to welcome to the team the lovely Kathy…
We’ve been looking for someone to work predominantly with our sentiments and background images
These stamps tend to get overlooked and are rarely the focal point of a card, it’s quite a skill to do this and yet still keep your work pretty and girlie (and you all know that here at Lili of the Valley we like to keep things as pretty as possible!)
Kathy makes the most beautiful cards and doesn’t generally use characters so she was the perfect choice to join and complement our already amazing design team
Kathy didn’t come on board in time to join in with the sneak peeks so before we start with them here’s one of the first cards she's made for us...
She’s used one of our new Quotable stamps (this one is in the Friendship set) and papers from our popular Country Lady pad
Lucy has another one of Kathy’s cards on Facebook this morning and she’ll also be joining in the hop with us so I hope you’ll all give her a big warm welcome
I’m sure you know what to do by now lol ...just ‘hop’ from one blog to another following the links and leave a comment on each card, hopefully we can give you lots of ideas and inspiration along the way for using the stamps. Because the team is a bit larger now we’ve been able to show you all of the new images
There is a fabulous prize up for grabs on this hop, we don’t know where it is hidden so do make sure you that you visit and comment on every blog
We will let you know tomorrow evening which was the ‘lucky’ blog and a winner will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left on that blog
The prize is a full set of the new Christmas stamps...
…that’s 16 rubber stamps, one each of all the new designs!
Here's a list of all the blogs taking part, and remember that you will need to visit them all and leave a comment on each one to have the best chance of winning;
