Happy New Year! This week’s post is a card I made for my Mum’s birthday a couple of months ago. It was inspired by this fabulous card I received for my birthday from a complete stranger!
I’m a member of a birthday club in a Facebook crafting group who are fans of Lavinia Stamps and this card was from one of the ladies (Kirsty) in that group. I was super impressed by this card and felt very lucky that someone had spent so much time and effort making such a beautiful card. I hadn’t heard of the Scene-Scape papers from Lavinia but decided to try some out. This particular one is called Midnight Magic.
To begin, I blended ink to make some hills onto the scene to give some sense of depth to the scene.
Next, I stamped the scene. I’m not usually into fairies but I liked Seren (she was on another card I received from the group) so I went out of my comfort zone and bought her. I added a little yellow ink to give the lamp some light.
This card was to be an easel card so I added the sentiment (cut from vinyl on my Cricut) to the stopper and decorated the inner panel.
To finish, I added a selection of Nuvo drops in white, purple and pink to give some bling and texture. For some added sparkle, I used Wink of Stella on the fairy’s wings and on the background orbs.
Here’s a picture of my Mum, the birthday girl, with her fabulous cake made by my sister.
I also tried out the Scene-Scape paper for a Christmas card for some cat-loving friends.
