Lavinia Stamps "Seeing is believing" cards

About a month ago, a lady commented on one of my Lavinia Stamps makes.  In her comment, she mentioned that she was new to stamping and had purchased a couple of Lavinia Stamps, a Versafine Clair ink pad and some Distress Inks, but hadn't been brave enough to try them out.

I sent the lady a private message and discussed the issue, suggesting that she tells me which stamps she has and which colours of Distress Inks.  I then made very brief videos, just a minute long for each technique, to make the cards shown above using one of the stamps (Seeing is Believing) that she had.

I have to say I felt rewarded when in a few days time, she shared with me her first make.  I hope I have inspired her to try out more techniques.  At the end of the day, it's only time, paper and ink lost if it all goes wrong.


  1. Your cards are inspirational Sam,

  2. What a kind gesture on your part Sam, and it obviously worked..your videos must have been well done and gave her the impetus she needed. x
