Hi and welcome to all my very talented and craft loving friends.

I have recently be buying some new stamps and have been having a play with them.

This card is made with Lavina Stamps, and all the stamping was done by hand.

I have been watching Jo Rice on You Tube to help with my fear of stamping and inspiration.

I was quite pleased how this turned out for my first attempt.


This is a 7"x7" size card.

I inked my card with DOI in the colours of Faded Jeans/ Mermaid Lagoon/ and Broken China.

Then I spritzed it with my water fan shaped brush.

I also used a spray bottle with pearl mica mist and water in it, but it doesn't show up on camera.

Then I stamped the Lavina Snow Shrub stamp in first and second generation stamping with Versa Fine Ink.

I then stamped the Lavina Stamp Small Pixies in the sky and added some Sakura Glitter pen to their wings and some small dots as their Fairy Dust.

As these stamps are Nbus I am trotting off to  Darnells to enter Nbus challenge.

The type written sentiment was from a Hunkydory Book of type written sentiments.

I have also made a Christmas one similar to this one and added a moon as I thought that was missing on this one will show on the Rudolf Challenge next month for my DT.


Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment you make.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY. 

I would like toenter this into the following challenge.

Hi Jenny, This card is lovely, Lavinia Stamps are my favourite stamp company and I have oodles of their stamps, I watch Jo Rice too on Youtube, she is always so inspirational as is Tracey Dutton (Lavinia Stamps owner), whenever I visit Craft Shows and Tracey is there demonstrating her stamps, I spend most of my time mesmerised watching her create pieces of art.
Your foray into a new set of stamps is fabulous.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Jo Rice has wonderful videos and she seems so down to earth. You did a great job on this card. I love how you highlighted it and I think you've overcome your fear. There are so many great videos on YouTube and you can learn anything by watching them.
