Lili of the Valley Designers Mini Hop!

Welcome to the Lili of the Valley Designers Mini Hop!!  Our previous hop was so successful that we thought we would bring you a Mini Hop each month.  

This month we are thrilled to be joined by Wild Orchid Crafts who have kindly sponsored some prizes along with prizes from Lili of the Valley.   We are showcasing  stamps from the latest release so we hope you will join us on the hop and check out what the DT have done with their chosen stamp for the hop and even pick up one of the mystery prizes from Wild Orchid Crafts and Lili of the Valley along the way.

We will be giving away 4 amazing prizes and all you have to do is leave a comment on each of the participating designer’s blogs.  We will then choose 4 winners from our mystery prize blogs on Wednesday.  Good luck! 


The stamp I am featuring today is called LOVE BOAT.  This stamp is so fun to color! The sweet sentiment is also LOTV and called VERSES.


I used distress inks and the papers are Bo Bunny.  The night time sky was colored with Weathered Wood and the water is Broken China, the boat is Walnut Stain and the bears are Brushed Corduroy with shading in Walnut Stain.   I always color my bears in these colors because the Brushed Corduroy can be three different shades and the Walnut just really helps with the shadowing.  I did add lots of stickles for a shimmery night sky.



Now, for our fabulous sponsor of the hop, Wild Orchid Crafts, I used an Aqua Trellis Rose,  Lt. Mocha 25mm Open Rose, natural cotton lace, and Vintage Seam Binding. I tell ya, I couldn't live without their products on my cards haha!


So be sure to check out the blogs below, because you never know who the Mystery Prize blog is and I'm sure you will be inspired!
