      Lili of the Valley change their images on a regular basis - did you buy toppers rather than the stamps? If so you may find someone has them on ebay...but they may well be bootleg copies, its a chance you take.

      For LOTV images that you love and know you will use over and over their stamps are the way to go...they are excellent quality and keep a resale value if you should tire of them.

      Love the brick effect backing...embossing folder?

        yes the brick wall is an embossing folder, we bought it at the NEC last year - hubby said we wouldnt' use it but we use it over and over again
        I'm not brilliant at stamping - its something I need to practise
        the toppers are just so quick and easy

            I bought some metal embossing plates in the USA a couple of years back that had industrial effects - brick walls, concrete & paving (with and without cracks) , wooden fence and cracked earth effects and its surprising how much use they get

            Do you know what the images are called or do you have a product ref number? If you haven't already, you could try emailing them - thery are really helpful. I will see the LOTV people in a couple of weeks and would happily ask them if you have the details.

              ah thanks thats really kind of you
              I have emailed them but cant' find out what the images were called
              they are just a sheet of teenage boys and another sheet of teenage girls doing 'teenage ' things, shopping , texting , playing the guitar etc
              I should have bought some more when I saw them - isn't that always the way x

                    I use my big shot for embossing Wid
                    I had a result with the teenage characters , I emailed Lily of the valley and she only had 9 sheets of the boys left ( 8 characters per sheet ) but lots of the girls and also fairies and winter princesses
                    they are stopping doing them which is a shame
                    so I order all the 9 sheets of boys , 9 of girls , 9 of fairies and 9 of winter princesses well at 50p a sheet it would have been rude not to wouldn't it lol

                          There was A LOT of cardmaking lol.
                          You can see a list of all the exhibitors here here.
                          There was also a lot of craft demonstrations and I'm now a fan of embossing!!

                            Do you have a scanner? Or maybe a 3in1 printer? If so, why don't you scan one sheet of each when you get them. Then you can just print off a set once you start running out. It will mean that you need to do a bit of cutting out (I'm assuming that the original sheets are die-cut?), but I guess the trade-off is maybe worth it?
