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

Been playing with my Lavinia stamps again.

My youngest Son and his wife had an Anniversary last Friday and on Saturday held a barbecue for all the family and it was lovely to all get together again.

The weather wasn't too bad and ended up staying till very late as everyone was enjoying chatting to each other.

My Daughter in Law made a yummy plum bakewell for afters as they have a plum tree in their garden.

Well as usual I digress so this is the card I made for them.



This is a 7"x7" size card.

I cut my card to 6.25 in size and  put black permanent pen around the edges instead of mounting it on black card stock.

I inked the background with Distress Oxide Inks.

Then stamped Rory and Darcy with Versa Fine Onyx Black Ink.

I made a mask for my Sun and inked around it and then stencilled some hearts in it.

Then I stamped flowers and foilage stamps in different colour Versa Claire Inks to give it depth.

I also added a Blue Print Sketch DOI to the sedges to darken them and draw your eye into the centre.

Finally I added some posca white pen dots and some glitter pen to Rory and Darcy's wings and stems of foilage.

Last of all I Stamped Rory and Darcy on the envelope.

All the stamping was done by hand and no stamp platform was used.


Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comments you make.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

A lovely anniversary card for them. How wonderful you were all able to be together to celebrate their happy occasion. You got great images without using a stamp platform. I use the Misti every time I stamp just in case.
