Lili of the Valley Challenge and another Sneak Peek

 

003a

Did you know that Lili of the Valley are releasing over 40 Christmas designs in the next couple of months including some gorgeous Kids Nativity stamps which you won’t be able to resist, loads of traditional Christmas characters and scenes which are just so cute, plus Polar Bears, Pups and Penguins and more of their fantastic Bear, now called James! 

The first set of 15-20 designs are released next Wednesday 14th July so look out for sneak peaks and beautiful cards on all the LOTV Design Team’s Blogs!

LOTV are offering two brand new Christmas stamps of your choice to the winner of this Challenge.

We have a fab sketch designed by Dawny P for Lili of the Valley Challenge this week, loved working with it.

I have used another of the cute Nativity Stamps for my card, it has been coloured with Copics and Gold Glamour Dust has been added to the stars.  The Ribbon and Flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, the lush paper is from the New Magnolia Wedding Paper collection available from Crafts U Love.

I thought you might like another sneak peek

Its the turn of Little Girls today, as usual with Lili of the Valley these girls are just adorable, I thought I would go for my favourite colour combination for this one, but I am sure she will look fantastic in Red and Green.

022

The papers are last year Magnolia Christmas, cannot wait to see what they come up with this year, the border is a Spellbinder Borderablity, I distressed the cut out flowers with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink then using glue gel I added them back into place on the border,the poinsettias were originally white, I sprayed them with Snow Angel Glimmer Mist, the larger flower is a Prima one from last years Prima Collection, brads from The Hobby House.

024 Hope you have enjoyed your sneak peeks, not long to go before you can have these little dears to play with yourselves, Don’t forget to scroll down to my last  post to join in my little LOTV Blog Candy, and Bev also has 2 LOTV stamps as candy on her blog.
