New Lavinia World Facebook Group Giveaways!

From Lavinia World:
EXCITING NEWS
Welcome to Anything Lavinia
We have started a brand new Facebook group called Anything Lavinia. Anything Lavinia is a friendly group of crafters that love sharing their love of anything Lavinia (stamps, papers). You are welcome to post any creations, using any types of medium, from any company….as long as it has to do with Lavinia.

As this is our opening week, we are having some great giveaways. We will be giving away 10 stamps to 10 different people. There is no purchase required. The only thing you have to do is click here to visit our Facebook group and click join. We will announce all 10 winners next Sunday, November 17. 

We will be having regular giveaways via this group so make sure you are part of it so you don't miss the fun.

Make sure you invite all your friends and anyone else who loves Lavinia products as much as we do.

We look forward to greeting you in our new group!!

I wanted to create a "Welcome" Lavinia Card for this event!
The stamps were all stamped with VersaFine Clair Ink - Nocturne and Shady Lane
on We Are 3 digital paper called, Brick Fire Station
To make the snow, i used an embossing marker/pen and white/sparkle embossing powder.
I then used Distressed Oxide ink to color in the door.  i dabbed some ink on my working mat, sprayed it with a tiny bit of water and used that as my paint.  You don't want it to wet, because your paper (depending on what paper you use) will warp.
Before i adhered the finished project to a mat, 
i diecut the edges with an edge border from Memory Box.
I cut a small piece of wired garland and made a little wreath

Come and visit me in the Fairy Hive!

Hello everyone and happy Thursday!! 
It’s time for a new Lavinia World Challenge featuring Lavinia stamps.
          We are a bi-weekly Challenge Blog and the theme will be Anything Goes using stamps
(either rubber or clear, but no digi stamps). 
                               Details are found under the "rules" tab on the Challenge Blog.


For my project, I used:
Lavinia Stamp - Fairy Hive LAV503
Lavinia Stamp - Moon LAV431
Lavina Stamp - Crow Set LAV540
Lavinia Stamp - See a Fairy Make a Wish LAV485

The stamps were all stamped with VersaFine Clair - Fallen Leaves, Morning Mist



I used 2 wood slices to create this project.
First i stamped the images on paper.
Then i used mod podge to attach them to the wood slices. 
I used Tim Holtz Oxides to paint the Fairy Hive and the moon and around the crow.
Then i also used Tim Holtz Oxides to paint the wood (not the edges)
I used Tim Holtz Oxide Crackle Paint on top of the moon, Fairy Hive and crow.
Then i stamped the background with the sentiment.
I used Prima rust affects paint - brown rust for the edges of the wood
Then i added a bit of Art Alchemy Wax - Firebird on top of the brown rust.
I added two twigs under the bird and high lighted them with the wax as well.
I used some water down Acrylic paint - Lime Yellow as a "moon" shadow around the hive and the bird.
Next, i painted the wood with the stamped sentiment with mod podge.
Last thing is i cut out a Memory Box tree die and painted it with black gesso and high lighted it with the wax. 
Now, i just glued the tree branches on and then glued the crow on top of the Fairy hive part.
** Make sure you put a saw tooth hanger on the back before you start.
