Howdy from tropical Dorset,
The weather today has been wonderful, we did so much walking, but maybe I didn't top up the sun cream enough times, as I am a little lobsterish, lol !!!!
Today a new Challenge starts on the Lavinia Stamps Challenge blog,
It is called 'Use a punch or a die',
so come on, get your Lavinia stamps out, and have fun and enter, of course you could win a fantastic prize of a £40 voucher to spend on more Lavinia goodies.
Check out the great DT samples and the rules on the blog
My first card is a 6"x 6" square, I used a Spellbinders window frame die, put acetate in the windows and in the ornate top, stamped a scene, which I cut out to fit the frame, added 2 fairies, stamped onto acetate and attached so that they are flying, added some stickles, and a sentiment.
The Lavinia stamps I used were,
Tree scene, Bluebells, Creeping vine, and 3 Small dancing fairies.
You can see and purchase these stamps
My second card, is again 6"x 6", (I do love this size),
I used Pan Pastels for the background, a Marianne Bird on a branch die, coloured with distress inks, stamped the birds and Cherry blossom in 'Sepia' ink, again coloured with Distress inks, used a tiny punch for the flowers, stamped a sentiment and finished off with some stickles.
The Lavinia Stamps I used were,
Cherry blossom and Birds and The World of Beauty sentiment.
They can be seen and purchased
I hope they give you a little inspiration,
Thanks for visiting,
See you soon.
