Lavinia Stamps Red Pines and Reindeer Tag

A couple of days ago, I ordered the two new stamps from Lavinia Stamp, both of them are Red Pine Trees, in large and in small.  They arrived today, so I thought I'd better try them out.

I had an off cut of a cling wrap background, so decided that would be perfect for the base of my tag, although it can barely be seen with all the other ink I have added.

I started by masking off the moon area, using Distress Oxide Inks to create the sky and land areas.  I removed the mask and added some touches of yellow to the moon, then got down to stamping.  I stamped the new "Red Pine" Trees in two shades of Distress Oxide Ink and also some Versafine Clair inks.

I stamped the reindeer in Versafine Clair "Acorn" brown ink, and used three words from one of the sentiment stamps called "Spirit of Christmas".

I used a white and then a silver glitter Signo Pen for the ground detail.


  1. It looks so icy cold, you created a wonderful scene with these stamps

  2. A beautiful card Sam. Hope you are keeping well in this difficult time. Take care and stay safe.

    1. Hi, thank you. I'm fine, lost my crafting mojo for a couple of months, but I've been engrossed in reading. Hopefully, my mojo will return to normal soon x
