Brand New LOTV 'Pretty Vintage' range!


Sorry for not posting for a while, I don't know where these weeks go! Not much to report I'm afraid, just been fiddling about with random crafty things and not actually achieving very much! =)

Just a quick post today to show one of the stamps from the fantastic new 'Pretty Vintage' range from Lili of the Valley which will be available on the website from 12am this Wednesday 12th. There are 26 brand new clear sets in the launch and they are all so gorgeous! I don't really do 'girly' but I don't think there's one that I don't like! There's everything from vintage girly and grungy backgrounds to tags, quotes and grungy elements so there's something for everyone and any card you need to make!
You can see lots of gorgeous Sneak Peeks on the LOTV Ideas to Inspire blog.

This stamp is from the 'Quotables - Go For It' set which includes six fantastic inspirational quotes. I've stamped and embossed it in gold on to paper from the LOTV Country Lady paper pad (I keep telling myself I'll use other papers but I never do because they're so gorgeous!) The base card has been cut with the Memory Box Debutante Frame die, the border is cut from the Country Lady pad as well and cut out with the Memory Box Twirling Vine Frame to fit the base card perfectly. I've added a bit of 'gilding' on the frame by dabbing kitchen roll in Versamark and splodging it randomly on the frame then embossing with gold powder again. I usually mange to go completely over the top with things like that but this has worked really well!

Our monthly challenge over at LOTV is actually to use a sentiment so this card fits quite well with that!

Anywho, hope you like the card!
