Lavinia Stamps "Pods Stencil" Card

Having had about a week away from paper crafts, I decided to ease myself gently back in to it by making this card. 

I masked off an area of the card, then blended two shades of Archival Inks (Chrome Yellow and Sunflower) using the lighter shade at the top, the darker at the bottom.

I then used the "Sunflower" Archival ink through the Lavinia Stamps "Pods" stencil to create the patterned background.

Next I stamped the sentiment, called "Time to reflect" which I think is now a retired Lavinia stamp, stamping in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.

I decided I needed to lift the background a little, so I outflines and filled in areas of the pods using a "Clear Star" Gelly Roll Pen, which adds just the right amount of shimmer.


  1. Sam this is a lovely stencil and love the simplicity of your card.. the sentiment is beautiful x

  2. A beautiful CAS card,the stencil and colours are gorgeous

  3. This elegant simplicity using the Lavinia Pods stencil in that bright yellow is really striking Sam, and love the added clear gelly roll pen on the background of the pods which gives some wonderful sparkle. x
