Silver Lining {Lavinia World #41}

 

Hey everyone, it's time for a new Lavinia World Challenges #41. The theme is anything goes using a stamped image (no digis please) and the winner will receive a $15 gift code to Lavinia World.

I decided to create a CAS card for today's project and used the following Lavinia stamps: Indra and Silver Lining.

Indra

Silver Lining

I stamped Indra using various colors of a variegated ink pad to get different shades. I did stamp the image multiple times, but each time I used a different section of the ink pad.  I kept stamping until I was happy with the color combination.


Next, i colored the image with colored pencils and added Fairy Hugs Glitter Powder (Arctic) to her wings and Raven glitter powder to her eyes.  Here is a close up so you can see the sparkle better,



I stamped the sentiment with Gold ink and then heat embossed it with Clear embossing powder.  I die cut the sentiment using a Tutti Designs die (Cross Stitch Nesting Banners)

I used a gold paint pen to outline the edges of the card and my sentiment and adhered both to a larger piece of dark purple cardstock.  As a finishing touch, Tonic Studios sequins were added here and there.

Luna's Pod {Fairy Stamper}

 


Hey everyone, it's Monday so that means it's time to share a new Fairy Stamper project with you. For today's under the sea project I used the following stamps:

Fairy Hugs: Luna
Fairy Hugs: Oscar
Fairy Hugs: Net
Lavinia: Mushroom Lantern set
Lavinia: Fairy Buttercups
Fairy Hugs Glitter Powder: Pearl

I used Distress Oxides to create the background and also added Specrum Noir Sparkle marker to give the water a shimmer effect. Then I began stamping the background stamps.  I stamped Luna multiple times in both black and a grey and fussy cut each one out for easy layering.

I added glitter to the mushroom lanterns and the buttercups and highlighted Oscar's tentacles with a white gel pen.

Fall Foliage {Fairy Stamper}


Hey everyone, happy Monday.  Today I'm sharing a new project created for Fairy Stamper.  I used a combination of Fairy Hugs stamps, Fairy Hugs glitter, and Lavinia stamps.


I started off as I usually do....with a piece of white cardstock.  I used several different ink pads and blending brushes to create the background scene. Once I was happy with this, I stamped the Fairy Door Large and the Mini Frog using black ink. The heron was stamped with a blue/grey ink pad.

I then added the leaves to the tree using the second stamp that comes in the Fairy Door Large set. I stamped the leaves cluster in reds, oranges, yellows, and greens for a nice fall looking tree.  I added color to the tree and door using colored pencils.  For more color and sparkle, Iris glitter powder was added above the door.

The heron was stamped so that he was standing at the edge of the pond.  I highlighted certain areas of the heron with gel pens.

To get that sparkle on the water, I added a brand new product called Fairy Hugs Confetti Glitter.  This is a mixture of different sized particles, giving everything a really unique texture and look.  This confetti glitter is the same color as the microfine Pixie Dust glitter powder that we all love.

Mooch's Butterflies {Lavinia World #40}

 


Hey everyone, I have a cute birthday card to share with you today.  It's also the start of a new Lavinia World Challenges #40! The theme for our challenges is always anything goes using a stamped image, but no digis please.  The winner of each challenge receives a $15 gift code to go shopping at Lavinia World.

I used the following products for today's card:

Lavinia stamps: Mooch
Lavinia stamps: Flutterbies
Lavinia stamps: Fairy Happy Birthday
Lavinia stencil: Pods
Tutti Designs dies: Cross Stitch Tags
Distress Oxides: Broken China, Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky

This is a pretty simple card to put together. Start out by die cutting the size tag you want. You can use anything to create the background, but I used Pan Pastels for this one. 

Next I stamped Mooch, one of my favorites๐Ÿ˜ป. Then came the Flutterbies.  Both were stamped using a black ink pad.  I added color to the Flutterbies and to Mooch's eye with gel pens.

For the card base, I used the Distress Oxides and the Lavinia stencil. I stamped my sentiment and, as a final touch, added sequins. 

As I said, pretty quick and easy. ๐Ÿ˜€ Now it's your turn and I hope you'll join us.  You can either upload your newly created project to the Challenge Blog or you can join our Anything Lavinia Facebook group and upload your project there.

Waterfall Purse {Fairy Stamper}

 


Hey everyone, it's Monday and time for a new Fairy Stamper project.  I used this super cute prototype template that was created by Bonnie, one of the design team members. Hopefully it will be available in her shop soon (We Are 3 Digital Shop). 

Once I had the pieces cut out of white cardstock, I used the Fairy Hugs stamp Waterfall and stamped the image on the front panel.


I knew I wanted to color the image with Copic markers, so I stamped the image with Memento ink (London Fog).  I also used Copics to color the tassel and the purse straps. The purse clasp and hardware were colored with a Nuvo Glitter marker.

Fairy Hugs Glitter Powder (Pixie Dust) was added onto the top portion of the tassel and in different parts of the water as a finishing touch.

Underwater Scene {Fairy Stamper}

 


it's Monday and that means it's time for a new Fairy Stamper project.  For today's project, I combined several Fairy Hugs stamps with Lavinia stamps.  These two brands coordinate beautifully together.

Products used:



This is a large piece, measuring approximately 8.75" x 6.5".  I started off with a white piece of cardstock and started stamping my scene using VersaFine Clair (Nocturne). At first, it looked like a whole lot of black on white and not very impressive. 

After everything was stamped, I heat embossed the entire piece with Clear embossing powder as I wasn't sure at this point how I would add color.

I decided to add color to Jalandhar and the Dancing Mushrooms using glitter gel pens. I was pleasantly surprised to see how well they blended together.  

Next, to tackle the white background. I used colored pencils in several shades of blues, pinks, and a bit of purples.  Then I blended it together using Gamsol and a paper blending stub.

The ocean floor was given a bit more texture by adding a light brown embossing powder.  And as a final touch, I added a bit of ribbon that reminded me of a fisherman's net.

With Sympathy {Lavinia World #39}



Happy Thursday everyone.  It's time for a new Lavinia World Challenges #39. The theme is anything goes using a stamped image (no digis) and the winner will receive a gift code to Lavinia World.

I used the following stamps for my card today:



I began by creating the background using Distress Oxides (Milled Lavender, Squeezed Lemonade, and Wilted Violet). Once I was happy with the blending, I stamped the Fern Leaf multiple times using VersaFine Clair Morning Mist.

I added the Lavender flowers using Wilted Violet. Fairy Hugs Glitter Powder (Pixie Dust) was adhered to some of the blossoms and a darker purple glitter to other blossoms.  I love how the Pixie Dust takes on the color of the background.  It's such a versatile glitter to have in your stash.

The die cut is an older one from Die-Versions.  I love the size of these Sweet Wordlets.  They are the perfect size for card fronts.

I also stamped the Lavender image beside my computer generated sentiment on the inside.  A touch of glitter was also added to these blossoms as well. ๐Ÿ˜€

Since this card was intended for a specific person, I created a coordinating envelope to complete the theme.
