Spooky Lavinia card

Two weeks ago I attended a workshop @ In ‘t woefke. The purpose was to create fairylike cards using Lavinia stamps, but I felt like creating a spooky card too:


All stamps are by Lavinia, except for the sentiment, which is Stampendous.

I only had used this card size (100 x210 mm) a handful of times before, but I actually really like it, so I’m pretty sure I will use it more often in the future.

This is my entry for the following challenges:




Fairy wonderland

Wicked Wednesday ATC challenge wants us to create a fairy wonderland. Here’s my atc:



Every fairy wonderland needs a bit of bling, so I added some Diamond Stickles:


Stamps used

  • Mushrooms, fairies, fairy dust: Lavinia
  • Fairy Frolics: Scrollswork
  • Greenery: Katzelkraft


I’ve made a number of ATCs for a swap currently hosted on the ATCsForAll-forum. The theme of that swap is ‘Dictionary words’ and one of the dictionary words I chose to illustrate is the French word ‘Lune’.

Since ‘moon’ is also the current challenge theme @ Take a word, I’d like to enter the following atc into their challenge.

Fairies, stars: Lavinia


Shiny fairies

‘Do you believe in fairies?’ is this fortnight’s theme over at ‘Fun with ATCs‘ and Hels over at  ‘Sunday Stampers‘ wants to see something shiny. It was an excellent excuse for me to try out the new Brilliance inks I’ve recently bought:

Unfortunately, the subtle sparkle of the Brilliance inks is hard to capture on scan.

Stamps used

  • Fairies, flowers: Lavinia
  • Sentiment: Quietfire
  • Script background: Darkroom Door


3 flowers and fairy silhouettes

The Less is more challenge focuses on 1 layer cards featuring ‘3 of something’ and the Cheerful Stamp Pad wants to see silhouettes. Here’s a fairy silhouette card featuring 3 flowers and 3 colours of Distress ink (Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Broken China):


I decided to create a matching envelope:

Thanks for looking!

Stamps used

  • Flowers, fairies: Lavinia

Glorious green garden atc

The weather has been dreary the last couple of days, so I’m sure you don’t mind me sharing this glorious green garden ATC. As I live in the city, I don’t actually have a garden, but I’m sure if I had one it would not only be populated with insects, snails, butterflies or hedgehogs…

The resist background was made with wax paper.

This is my entry for the following challenges:

Couldn’t resist the fairies…

I couldn’t stop playing with my Lavinia fairies… This time, I stamped them on an alcohol ink resist background (or I put them behind an AI resist foreground on acetate).

For this technique, I applied several colours alcohol ink on acetate (you can also use glossy paper) using an applicator. I inked my bubbly background stamp with black Archival ink and stamped it onto the alcohol ink background. Then, I immediately wiped off the black archival ink using a cloth. This removes the alcohol ink that was underneath the stamped image and exposes the acetate or white glossy paper again.

This is my entry for Hels’ Simply irresistable challenge.

Stamps used

  • Bubbly background: Stampcamp
