Dream {Lavinia World #18}

Hey everyone, so happy that you're here.  Today is the beginning of a new Lavinia World Challenges #18.  The theme is always Anything Goes using a stamped image (no digis please).  You can enter our challenge either through our Challenge Blog, or through our Anything Lavinia Facebook Group.  We'd love to have you join us in both places!  The winner of the challenge wins a $15 gift code to go shopping at Lavinia World.

This project was created using the following stamps:

This is a fairly simple card to create.  I started out by die cutting the center from a piece of light kraft cardstock using a My Favorite Things die (Tall Snow Globe).  Save the die cut for a future project and use the negative piece.  Using the same die, I cut out the shape again, only using a darker shade of kraft cardstock.

Using a stamp positioner, I stamped the Fairy Bridge first using VersaFine Clair ink (Pinecone) onto the darker shaded die cut.  I then cleaned the stamp, inked it up with VersaMark and heat set it with Clear embossing powder.  I stamped the bridge a second time on scrap paper to create a mask.

Temporarily adhere the mask on top of the stamped bridge and then stamp the Fir Tree in the background.  I stamped it a couple of times with VersaFine Clair (Green Oasis) to make sure everything stamped ok. 

Next I brought out my colored pencils and shaded the water and the rocks.  I added green glitter to the Fir Tree for a bit of sparkle (and it also gives it a little more shading).

Taking the negative piece of lighter kraft cardstock, I ran it through my die cutting machine using a Law Fawn die (Just Stitching Double rectangles).  This die adds stitching, but doesn't actually cut anything out.  I used all the dies in the set.

I added pop dots to the negative piece and adhered it to my card base.  Next I added adhesive to the stamped focal point and dropped it down in the opening.  It's easier to do it this way as I don't have to worry about centering the focal point exactly in the right spot.  This way automatically does it for me 😀.

Lastly, I die cut my sentiment using a Simon Says Stamp die (dream) from black cardstock and adhered it under my focal point.

I think this would make a great card for a guy and you can add any sentiment you wish.

I absolutely need that fairy bridge! How lovely your scene is, especially when looking through the snow globe. Die cut. All the detailed rectangular frames surrounding the glass snow globe give it that elegant CAS look while bringing pretty textures to make your creation even more beautiful! Hugs, de

This is so very pretty, Anne. I love how you masked the tree so it's behind the bridge -- so effective!

Gorgeous job of cutting and stamping, Anne! Love your coloring on the stone bridge and water, and that tree is perfect with the sparkle on it.
