Lili Of The Valley Sneak Peek/Challenges


If you loved the last release from Lili Of The Valley I am sure you will be eager to get your little hands on the new stamp release in November! They are absolutely gorgeous! There are 16 designs in the range, including 7 Boys, 4 Fairies, Bears and Bunnies all suitable for many occassions. The stamps will be launched at the NEC, Birmingham 5th-6th November and available to buy online from 11th November.

Meantime, the Lili Of The Valley Challenge DT have been lucky enough to play with these lovely designs and will be giving you some sneak peeks to whet your appetite. Have a look at some of the designs by visiting the challenge blog and the DT's blogs and see for yourself how gorgeous these stamps are.

As soon as I saw this design I knew he was going to be my favourite. Having brought up three boys this image just took me straight back to when they were little, playing their rough and tumble games and coming in covered head to toe in mud...


Sketch Saturday (72) - Sketch
Cupcake Crafts (61) - Buttons/Stitching
Creative Card Crew (32) - Scallops
C.R.A.F.T. (21) - 1 Ribbon/2 Buttons/3 Papers
Charisma Cardz (41) - It's So Distressing

This gorgeous stamp is called 'Rope Swing' and I have coloured him with pencils (and chalks to 'dirty' him up as he was too clean). I then added some faux stitching with a pen and distressed the edges with chalks. The sentiment has been computer generated and distressed also. I didn't think ribbon looked quite right so I used raffia instead. I hope you like him as much as I do.

Stamp - LOTV
Papers - Summertime Designs
