Lavinia Stamps "Forest Flower" on a stencilled background

A late evening play session, I should really have waited till the morning to take the photograph as the lightling this evening really doesn't do the card any justice.

I started by stamping and heat embossing the Lavinia ""Forest Flowers" using Wow! Embossing "Rich Gold Super Fine" embossing powder. Once heat set, I moved on to the background.

I used the Lavinia Stamps "Tall Leaf Mask" with several shades of Ranger Archival Inks (Sky Blue, Garden Patina, Manganese Blue, Library Green and Majestic Violet).

I then used the Lavinia Stamps "Honeycomb Stencil" with  "Sky Blue" Archival Ink around the edge of the leaf.  

Next I used one of the Lavinia Stamps "Hill Masks" to create lines of colour around the leaf using a couple of shade of Ranger Archival Ink:  Garden Patina and Manganese Blue".

In the top left of the card, I stamped teh "Just for you" sentiment, which is part of the Lavinia Stamps "Heartfelt Verse" stamp set, stamped in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.

I added touches of colour to the flowers using a selection of coloured gel pens.


  1. This is a very pretty leaf stencil Sam and I love the different colours you have used in the background and a great idea to use a hill mask to get the lines, and the gold embossed flowers coloured using different pens look wonderful. x

  2. Beautiful colours and design,the layered effect is gorgeous

  3. Love how you used the leaf stencil Sam and gorgeous masking and stamps x

  4. Stunning card as always Sam…..
