Lavinia Stamps "Large Key" new home card


So back to a quieter looking card with a clean and simple design which was quick to make too!

I used an anti-static bag (filled with French Chalk) across the surface of the card before stamping, in an attempt to keep any stray embossing granules from sticking where they shouldn't be.

Using the Wow! Embossing Clear ink pad I stamped the new Lavinia Stamps "Large Key" in the middle of the card.  I then coated the stamped image with Wow! Rich Gold embossing powder and heat set.

Using Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze" ink, I stamped the Lavinia "Pixy Houses" along the top of the key.  I also stamped the "Welcome Home" sentiment, which is part of the Simon Says Stamps "Tiny Words" stamp set.

Next I used "Shadow Grey" Ranger Archival Ink, applied very lightly with a blending brush through the Lavinia Stamps "Waffle" stencil.

Finally, I added touches of metallic gold pen to the windows of the central house and added some smoke coming out of the chimney using a pencil.


  1. A fabulous ornate key stamp opening the door to a magical place,a beautiful new home card

  2. What a wonderful idea for a new home card Sam, and the gold embossed key looks great with the sweet little houses placed upon it, and the Waffle stencil works brilliantly for a soft background. x
