Lavinia World Challenge Blog Premier!

Hello, dear blogging friends!
Like many of you, we are experiencing a heat wave with temperatures ranging from 93 - 96 (34C-36C). Be safe in this heat, and keep hydrated!


This is my premier Challenge Post for Lavinia World! While Lavinia World is located in the US and ships worldwide, these delightfully sweet images from the UK are extremely detailed and reasonably priced. Even better, buy $25 and get free shipping! Lavinia World carries other brand coordinating products for your convenience.

Details of our Challenge:
Every second Thursday a new Anything-Goes challenge will be posted. Use a clear or rubber stamp - no digitals. If your project features Lavinia World stamps, your chances to win a $15 gift certificate to the store are doubled. 




I stamped with Paradise Blue VersaFine Clair, and heat set with clear detail EP. A heart was die cut from 2" wide Post-it Note "tape". After being inked with a masking technique, clear glitter was adhered to the heart shape, wings, and parts of the flower stem:


The sentiment was stamped using the same color ink as the masked background after being stamped off one time:


It's definitely not a conventional creation using silhouette images, but was lots of fun using tropical, oceanic colors:



Products Used:
Dies: Spellbinders Borderabilities, QuicKutz Nesting Hearts, Sue Wilson Double Stitch Octagons, Tonic Autumnal Oak
Other: Flowers, Blue EP and Blue Glitter, Clear Detail EP, Citrus, Sail Boat Blue and Spun Sugar inks


I'd like to play in the following challenges please!

Donna this so stunning in every way. I am not a fairy person myself but I must admit that image is adorable and I love the glitter and shine you added to it. And, all the fabulous colors are perfect. What a great background with that pattern and the multi-colors. You have not lost your touch at all as this is super fantastic!

Julie Odil said...

This is a magical project! It is the perfect way to start our first challenge!

Conniecrafter said...

Terrific creation, I just love all the special touches you gave to this, the background idea you came up with it so cool, great details to it, lovely shimmer. Love your mix of patterned leaves with the glitter eaves too! Beautiful!

Granmargaret said...

Lovely work. Thank you for joining the challenge at A Bit More Time to Craft. Hope to see you again next time.

Leslie Miller said...

You know... opening a US shop and having a challenge team is going to be great for business. I've already been over there looking and it's a first time for me. I see a few things I wouldn't mind having when I'm ready for my next shopping binge. Beautiful cards like yours make it very tempting. I love that you used a pretty shade of blue for your silhouette and highlighted with the yellow. Really makes it stand out and adds extra magic to it. Fairies just have to have fairy dust (glitter), too, so that must make you very happy!

A gorgeous card Donna, I love your silhouette fairy and fabulous colour choices - so pretty.

Starting off with a BANG! Well done! I love your background and that sweet fairy image! You have showcased her beautifully! The sparkly leaves and greenery are so pretty! I agree, these colors are FAB! This is one magical creation! Congratulations!

crafty-stamper said...

Gorgeous card and great masking-love the beautiful silhouette stamps and it looks so different and a more softer effect in blue rather than the standard black-beautiful and love the sparkle.

Gee, thanks for enabling me, Donna! heeheehee No, seriously, I have become more and more interested in Lavinia stamps. I know a few artist friends who use them frequently and create the most gorgeous scenes, they rival Stampscapes, really. So, I'll check out this store. Your card is really lovely, that is high-maintenance masking, my brains explodes at the thought, lol. Bravo to you! xoxo p.s. What heat wave? We have lucked out...for now. xoxo
