Purple Lavinia Elements Slimline Scenes



Hello friends!  It's Autumn Clark from SewPaperPaint with you today to share a couple of simple slimline cards featuring gorgeous stamps and inks by Lavinia.  These cards were inspired by Fliss Owens and were recreated by many members of the Lavinia FB group.  I did mine a little different, of course.  I lightly bent my card panel to ink the center with watered Della Blue Lavinia Elements Dye Ink.  Then I dipped the top in watered Violet Chalk and the bottom in Graphite.  Then came the stamping fun.  I stamped Dandelions in Graphite and Della Blue, then the Mini Seed Head in Violet Chalk.  I embossed the Fairy Buttercups in white, then added a shadow with a purple Posca paint pen.  I added more white details with a white pen and then some Stickles over the dandelion heads.   

For my second card, I used the same colorway.  I dipped the bottom half of my panel in watered Della Blue ink and let the color blend to the "sky", blotting with a baby wipe when necessary.  Then I stamped the Foxgloves in Violet Chalk and Della Blue, doing some second generation stamp here and there.  I embossed the Whimsical Whisps in white for contrast.  Finally, I added a sentiment from the Heartfelt Verses stamp set and splashed some extra ink onto the panel.  I hope these cards make you want to get inky today!  xx, Autumn

Lavinia Alcohol Lift Ink Journal Page


Happy Friday crafty friends. Ericka from Strangely Creative here and today I'm playing with some Lavinia stamps and creating a journal page using alcohol inks along with some lift ink. I've been watching videos from Tracey over at Lavinia and wanted to try her technique using alcohol lift ink.


I started with Yupo paper and applied alcohol inks until I was happy with the colors. I then took some alcohol lift ink and applied it to the top of my Yupo and brayered it to spread it over the paper. Acting quickly, I pressed my white card stock onto the Yupo to lift the ink. I love the result and the colors are bright but on a paper that is easier to stamp on.

I stamped the Lavinia Mae stamp in the middle of my background with Versafine Clair Nocture ink. I then used Versafine Clair ink in Twilight, Rain Forest, and Warm Breeze to stamps additional elements onto my background with the Lavinia Floral Wreath and Lilium sets.

I stamped the Magic Surrounds Us sentiment in white around my background to lighten up the image. I then used mica powder and dusted it onto the words to add some shimmer.

I added some ink blending in Twilight around the edge of my page as well as some gel pen accents to highlight my main image.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a chance to try this fun technique with alcohol inks.

Lavinia Stamps - Introducing Noof

  Hi Everyone,

Cornelia here today. This week we are showcasing Lavinia stamps on the Topflight blog. When I saw this cat I had to have it! His name is Noof and I can't get en-Noof of him, LOL!

I stamped the cat and sponged it with distress oxide ink (wild honey). I made a mask for the bottom of the cat and sponged with distress ink (forest moss). Added the mouse and a bit of "blood" with a marker.  Added the sentiment. 

I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting. 
See you next week with more Topflight Stamps inspiration.

And here are the stamp supplies I used:

A Birthday Card

It's Tuesday so you've got Kathi here to share a project with you! This week my teammates and I are showcasing Lavinia Stamps' fantastic products. I decided to create a slimline birthday card with the Bayleaf Cottage Clear Polymer StampFir Tree Clear Polymer Stamp, foliage from the Floral Wreath Clear Polymer Stamp Set, and a sentiment from the Heartfelt Verses Clear Polymer Stamp Set. I also used the Divine Stencil and one of the masks from the Acetate Hills Masks set. 

Here it is!

The Bayleaf Cottage was stamped with Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink onto repositionable label paper and onto Bristol paper. The label paper version was fussy-cut and placed atop its counterpart on the image panel. 

Violet ChalkDella Blue, and Blue Lagoon Elements Inks were brushed over the masked image panel. When I was happy with the blending and the coverage, Blue Lagoon Elements Ink was brushed over the Divine Stencil.

The least curvy hill mask was placed under the stones and Graphite Elements Ink was brushed over it. 

Rainforest VersaFine Clair Ink was used to stamp the Fir Tree around the masked image, using first and second generation stamping. 

The mask was lifted and retained for another use. Watercolor markers were used to color the Bayleaf Cottage

Green Oasis and Verdant VersaFine Clair Ink were used to randomly stamp the foliage from the Floral Wreath Clear Polymer Stamp Set along the bottom of the image panel.

The image panel was trimmed to 3.75" x 8.75" and edged with Blue Lagoon Elements Ink.

Purple Delight VersaFine Clair Ink was used to stamp "Happy Birthday" from the Heartfelt Verses Clear Polymer Stamp Set. The ink was heat set and the sentiment was die-cut.

The image panel was adhered to a 4" x 9" card, which will fit in a #10 envelope.

Art Journal Page with Lavinia Mysticals Mist

 Welcome back to another creative week! This is Rachel from and this week I'm sharing the steps to an art journal page that features the gorgeous Lavinia Mysticals Mists.

First I gesso'd a page in my art journal. Once dry, I heavily sprayed the page with Lavinia mists in Bumble Bee and Fruit Sorbet.

Next, I used the AALL & Create stencil "Hung Up on Hearts" with Paper Artsy fresco paint in Twilight. I used the stencil to create the flow of the page, so only part of the stencil is painted.

Then I added some torn strips of washi tape and I used another AALL & Create stencil called Totally Dotty and only sprayed a small section with Lavinia mists in Kingifhser

Of course, I needed to add some splatters! I splattered across the page with Prism Mists in Midnight Black.

Lastly, I grouped together some Mushroom stamps by Katzelkraft and glued them to my page. I also added some small pink beads that I found in my stash.

The page actually came together super quickly. I love using the Lavinia Mists, they make it so easy!
