Today, I was fortunate to be passing reasonably closely to the Lavinia Stamps shop, so asked Hubby to make a detour via Ruthin, so that I could purchase the new "Winter Whispers" stamp release.
I've not been to the shop since it's opening day, four years ago, which I attended as part of the Lavinia Stamps Design Team, so it was nice to get back there and see all their lovely goodies. I was greeted by the super helpful Jack on the counter and then had a jangle with Sarah Anderson and Jo Rice, who were both on the Design Team at the same time as myself.
I knew I was purchasing the new "Winter Whispers" stamp bundle, but there were some other bits and bobs that I needed too. You can see my goodies in the photo above - it was quite a haul!
Obviously, as soon as I got home, I catalogued and repackaged the stamps how I like them and then got busy making a card!
I started by using Distress Oxide Inks: Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Shabby Shutters and Faded Jeans.
I used two Lavinia Stamps stencils: Filigree and Flower Mask".
I used two of the brand new Lavinia Stamps, using the new fairy called "Eve" stamped in Verafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink and the new "Forest Leaf" stamped in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane green ink.
I used Wow! Embossing pad and Rich Gold Embossing Powder with the Lavinia "Mystic Swirls" stamp and the "Star Cluster" stamp.
I coloured the card using Derwent Inktense pencils, Posca Pens and gel pens, also adding more sparkle and shimmer using "A Wink of Stella" too.
