A New Stamp Release At Lavinia



It's an exciting day at Lavinia, the talented Tracey is definitely spoiling us all with a whole new range of amazing stamps!


I used distress inks to add colour and added some doodling.




For my second card I used the House stamp set again, Eden , Flutterby and the Sacred Tree from the new stamp range. My favourite ever Background Script stamp.




I teamed up my new stamps with Midnight Meandering  for my final card as I think that Eden needed a furry friend to stroke.

I'm using these cards for the following challenges:-
CGC89, Freestyle,
FBD September, Animals,
Stampavie 269, Fairy,
Ikesworld 72, Things that fly,

Autumn Colours At Lavinia



It's time for a new Lavinia challenge and this month the theme is 
Autumn Colours



For my first card I used Hill border thin lines for my fence, and stamped a selection of Trees onto my inked background.I then balanced the cats Mimsy and Mooch onto my wall to watch the ducks flying overhead.

For my second card I masked the oval and used my favourite and oh so useful Background Script, I used trees and Mooch as with my first card and hung Willow to frame the scene.
We hope that you will join us for the challenge this time,it's really worth inking up your Lavinia stamps to be in with a chance of winning a £40 voucher to spend in the shop. No blog is necessary! 



I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CBD, Anything goes,
LRW357, Get inky,
MM&M, Natures beauty.

Anything Goes!

It's time again for a new theme at Southern Girls and this time the challenge is simply

I fancied a change this time and decided on making a layout so although I didn't use an image, we still have some great sponsors this time so don't forget to check out the challenge blog for full details.

This isn't quite what I had planned but whilst checking through my supplies for suitable papers I found some corrugated card that I had saved from ages ago, I have seen some great work on Pinterest using it and had great fun distressing it, peeling back the paper layer to reveal the wavy lines beneath. I added some texture paste and distress inks to my card base too, quite liberating for a CAS girlie, I even sprinkled on some Brushos for good measure.





I'm using this layout for the following challenges:-

Sisterhood of Crafters, No DP,
Use Your Stuff 222, texture or modelling paste,
Unstampabelles57, Creative Upcycling,
We love to Create, Mixed Media.

Patterned Paper

I'm a tad behind with posting my Team Lou card for Southern Girls this time the theme is 
I'm more of a CAS kind of girl and seem to have got in the habit of avoiding papers completely, I have pies of them stockpiled, some real beauties, I get them out, stroke them, shuffle them for ages trying to decide on combinations for my cards the abandon them, which was pretty much how I started with this DT project. 


I bought some lovely lined paper pads from Paperchase a while back, and decided to print my image directly onto it, opting for a heavier outline to the Ppinky Dolls image, they are one of the sponsors this time, please check out the challenge page for full details of other sponsors this time.
Still couldn't decide on pattered paper and found myself punching flowers from my scraps, that's when I decided to just cover one of my note books, it doesn't look so good here but in reality it's rather lovely!
I'm using this notebook for the following challenges:-
CGC67, Die cuts or punches,
FBD, Flowers,
TCA13, Anything goes Girly.
