Lavinia Stamps November 2019 Hochanda TV Preview - Set 1/2
Lavinia Stamps will be on Hochanda TV with some fabulous stamps and accessories on Friday 22nd November 2019 at 10am and 3pm.
I am very fortunate to be part of the Lavinia Stamps Design Team which means I get to play with the new stamps before they are released to the public. This is one of the cards I made to promote the show.
For this card I started by covering a plain white piece of card with "Antique Linen" Distress Oxide Inks, creating a mottled/aged style background.
I stamped the fairy called "Celeste" first, using Versafine Clair "Monarch" purple coloured ink. Using the same ink, I stamped the "Faerie Spells" sentiment.
I then created the foliage swag. First I stamped the "Fir Tree Branch" in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink. I added the "Pound Stamp - Holly", stamped in Versafine Clair "Rain Forest" dark green coloured ink. I stamped the "Pound Stamp - Berries" using a Memento Ink called "Rhubarb Stalk".
Finally, I stamped some pound stamp stars across the card using a Brilliance Ink called "Galaxy Gold". I added some white highlights to various areas of the card.
Once the card was fully dry, I positioned the letter dies across the image, securing with a low tack tape before running through the big shot machine.
I removed the letters from the image and turned the card upside down, so that the base of the card was showing. I adhered some red paper over the word area. I then mounted the card on a dark red coloured card and then onto a cream base.
Flipping the card with the right side upright, I cut foam pads and stuck them onto the base of the letters. I then positioned them over the red letter shape. This gives a raised look to the word "Peace" and you get a little glimpse of the red to add interest too.
