Hello everyone! I'm a little, well maybe a lot, behind as usual. In an effort to catch back up, I'm going to post a recap of the cards I made in August. Since I can't seem to keep up, that's my goal is at least to post once a month. So here goes!
Mooch and the fairy foragers putting the flowers to sleep, that's what I imagine is going on in this scene. This is a 5x7 piece that I actually ended up framing, instead of making into a card. I made the background on the gel press with Elements Inks from Lavinia Stamps and Brushos. All of the stamps are Lavinia Stamps. Other inks used are Versafine Claire and Close to My Heart. I threw in some Inktense and Prismacolors for good measure. There is always sparkle from a gelly roll stardust pen that I can never capture in pictures.
This next card is also a 5x7. It was just after the Olympics, so I figured our forest friends may be having a competition of their own. This background is from the Lavinia Dreamscapes paper pack. The inks and stamps are same as above. I just love these hares. The Druid's Inn stamp is one of my favorite scenery stamps from Lavinia.
I had seen a picture circulating facebook of a snail with a berry. It was an incredible photo. I tried my best to recreate it here. The background was made on the gel press with Distress Oxides, Brushos, and dye inks. All the stamps are Lavinia, including the new sentiment stamps which I heat embossed on the strips. There was a good bit of coloring on here with Prismacolors over the stamped images.
This next card is a standard A2 sized card. This is one of the new fairies, Quinn, with her new Fairy Heart Charm. I love, love, love the new release from Lavinia Stamps. This background was made with Distress Oxides. I used Versafine Claire ink to stamp Quinn and the branches. The leaves are stamped with dye inks from Close to My Heart. I left the sentiment off of this one, but I feel like it could be used for so many things: birthdays, thinking of you, just a note, thanks, etc.
That's it for me, for now. Maybe one day I can stay caught up. For a more up to date account of my cards and such, you can follow me on Instagram @Stacy_Scraps.
Thanks for stopping by! Stay safe!
