This fabulous card from Gretha shows how versatile these stamps are. Everyone struggles for cards for the men in their life and this is a fabulous set, but this card design shows how you can make them girlie too! Because the images themselves are so fun and cheery you can use them for all kinds of occasions and card styles from clean and simple, to monochrome and bright to really masculine to ever so pretty!

New Stamps for Men!

We have 6 new rubber stamps coming out in early May which will be perfect for Men's Cards and especially Father's Day. We know how everyone struggles to find decent images for male cards so we wanted to bring you something that wasn't too 'cute' but you will still enjoy making and giving cards with these images. We hope you like them! We have some great inspiration from Vicky and Jacqui here and there will be more sneak peeks of the coming days.

There are 3 cars in the range, as well as a pub, a caravan and a shed, so we hope we've covered a few options for the men in your life! They will be great for many occasions as well as Birthdays and Father's Day, including retirement, bon voyage/happy holidays, good luck, take it easy, get well soon and more. (Of course they're not just for men, women like many of these activities too!) Do let us know what you think and you could win a set of stamps from this new launch. Leave a comment below to be in the chance to win.

Jasmine and Oliver Teenage Stamps and our new Sentiment Stamps are Out Now!

Finally our new teenage stamps are here! They are ready to be shipped to all those who have placed advanced orders so they will be winging their way to you from tomorrow. Anyone who hasn't yet had the chance, do get your order in quickly as they may not last! We've had loads of brilliant feedback about these new designs as teenagers are so hard to make cards for. These seem to hit the mark for both cardmakers and their teenagers, which is great news as it's what Laila wanted to achieve with our lovely artist!  
 
The new sentiment stamps are also great too for all kinds of occasions, as well as complementing these new designs so well. If you want to see some fantastic cards do look on our Pinterest Board or we hope to see some of you at our LOTV Pop Up Shop at The Loft Coffee Shop on St George's Day, 23rd April! I will also be putting some more fab cards from our Design Collective on here later today.
 
You can buy any 4 of these new stamps for just £16 and 3 sentiment sheets for £35. Don't forget shipping is free on all orders of £10 or more.
