Add Flowers For Lavinia.

It's time for a new challenge theme at Lavinia and the theme for December is
"Add Flowers"



I used one of the gorgeous new dies for my first card, adding a little sponging and stamping to my background and a few punched flowers to the silhouette.




I thought I'd show you a real side on view so that you can see how I treated the wings. I cut the image three times, trimming around the wings on two and sandwiching a trimming of sheer lilac ribbon between them. I then shaped the wings and glued the rest of the silhouettes together. If I was going to be sending this card through the post, I might add a squeeze of silicone glue up close to the body just to help them stay fluttery. 




The next card is just a masked and inked background  and the poppy stamp inked in two colours.



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

DDC11, Girlie/diecut,
AGOAC 133, Kraft and a colour,
Allsorts287, Milestone birthday,
Little Claires, Shaped card.

Dielicious!

A few weeks ago I reached half a century, what a silly age to be, it made me laugh so much, I thought that only old people became 50! 
Anyway, a lovely friend of mine treated me to a gorgeous new die and finally, today, I got chance to have a play with it.




For my second cards, I cut the diecut in half and hid the cut under the scalloped edge created with a "Lawn Fawn" edging die. These cards are only small but perfect for a little thank you.



I'm using these cards for the following challenges:-
CMC59, Use dies,
CHA19, Thank you,

Die Cut And Monochrome

I thought I'd share a couple of cards made a couple of weeks ago using the lovely
The first one I cut in two colours, alternating them as I layered them up. I also shaped the blooms adding tiny seed beads as stamens.



 I made the background for my second card by gluing together 3 cuts of the Lavinia butterfly die and using it to emboss my card using the tan mat through the 
grand calibur


I'm using my cards for the following challenges:-
Little Claires 51, Shaped card,
We Dodoobadoo 18, Enhance your diecuts.

Snow And Sparkle With Lavinia



The new theme starts today at 
Lavinia Stamps Challenge.
It's a great one for all of you Lavinia lovers that want to get some Christmas cards made!
I flicked masking fluid over my card before inking up my night sky and stamping Santa and his Reindeer
 onto the freshly fallen snow lol!
 I did have a bit of a laugh when I'd rubbed of the dried masking fluid and it revealed a few rather large snowballs instead of delicate flakes. Oh well!
There's a great randomly picked prize as always, a £40 voucher to spend in the Lavinia shop where you can now treat yourself to some of the gorgeous new 
A blog isn't essential as email entries are also accepted.
