Lavinia Stamps New Stamp Release (January 2020 ) Luna Lights and Words of Spring

Here is another sample I have produced for Lavinia Stamps.  I've used two of the new stamps to create this tag - Luna Lights and Words of Spring.

I started by using three shades of Distress Oxide Inks (Tumbled Glass, Twisted Citron and Squeezed Lemonade" swooshed over a white tag to create the mottled coloured background.

I multiple stamped the "Words of Spring" stamp, using Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink.  I inked the edges of the tag in the same ink.

I multiple stamped the "Luna Lights" image using Versafine Clair "Summertime" orange shade of ink.

Finally, I mounted the tag onto some green card to match the green ink and added a decorative ribbon

Lavinia Stamps - New Stamp Release Sample Preview (January 2020) - Aria

Lavinia Stamps have some fabulous new stamps that will be released on their site on Monday 27th January 202.  I have been fortunate to have a play with them to create some promotional samples.

I've used "Aria" the kneeling fairy, her hands are held out waiting to hold something.  I've used an existing Lavinia stamp called "bubbles" to replicate a crystal ball.  

In each corner I have stamped another new design called "Mystic Swirl".  The sentiment is in the existing collection and is called "Once Upon a Dream" all stamping is in Versafine Clair "Chianti" on a gelliplate background.

Lavinia Stamps New Stamp Release Preview (January 2020) - Mushroom Lantern

This is a sample I have made for Lavinia Stamps using one of their fabulous new stamps which will be available to purchase from Monday 27th January 2020.

I had a very small off-cut of a gelli-plate/Brusho background that I had saved, so I used this to stamp the new Mushroom Lanterns.  They come is a single and a duo set.  I stamped them using Versafine Clair "Medieval Blue" adding extra colour using a blue Posca Pen and then silver over the top using a Signo Pen.

Lavinia Stamps New Stamp Release Sample Preview (January 2020) - Luna Lights

It was love at first sight as soon as I saw this brand new stamp called "Luna Lights" from Lavinia Stamps.

Yes, it can be dressed up with fancy backgrounds and other supporting stamps, but the simplicity of this card really highlights the fabulous detail Tracey Dutton has put in to designing her stamps.

I've stamped the "Luna Lights" in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green in, on to an off-cut of Brusho lemon background which has some little speckles of orange in it. I inked the edges using the same green ink and them mounted the image onto a white card blank.

A simple "clean and simple (CAS) card with big impact.

Lavinia Stamps New Stamp Release Preview (January 2020) Aria, Luna Lights and Pink Orbs

Time to showcase another sample I have created using some of the new January 2020 stamp releases from Lavinia Stamps. 

I used a background created by using three shades of Dylusions Ink Sprays, which create lovely vibrant colours.

Once dry I started to stamp the images, first one was the "Pink Orbs" that the fairy sits on, which I stamped in Versafine Clair "Glamorous" pink ink.

I then stamped "Aria" in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.  I also stamped the word "Love" which is part of the "Live The Life" stamp set already in the Lavinia collection.

I returned to the Versafine Clair "Glamorous" pink ink stamping the "Luna Lights" suspended from the top left of the card.  While the ink was out, I also stamped a little heart, which is in the existing Lavinia collection and is called "Single Heart Mini".  I cut the heart out and adhered it into position in the hands of the fairy.

I used a selection of red, gold and black pens to colour in the "orbs".  I also used a Sakura Gelly Roll pen to add some subtle gold shimmer to areas of the card.

Lavinia Stamps New Stamp Release Sample Preview (January 2020) Words of Spring and Mystic Swirl


Lavinia Stamps is always busy.  This week especially so, as there are thirteen new stamps due to be released.  The stamps will be available to purchase from their site from Monday 27th January 2020.

I made this card using three of the new stamps "Words of Spring" and "Vine Flourish" both stamped in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" dark green ink and "Mystic Swirl" stamped in Versafine Clair "Verdant" light green coloured ink.  For this card, I also added touches of copper using a "copper" Liquid Pearl.

Lavinia Stamps New Stamp Release (January 2020) Aria, Luna Lights and Pink Orbs

I am absolutely loving the new stamps from Lavinia Stamps, especially this fairy "Aria".  As her hair is kind of floating upwards, I decided to make an under water scene as one of my samples.

I started by swooshing two Distress Oxide Inks "Cracked Pistachio" and "Peacock Feathers" across the surface of a piece of white card.

I used Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue ink to stamp the three new stamps, "Aria" the fairy, "Luna Lights" the flowers on the left of the fairy and "Pink Orbs" the circular designs Aria is sitting on.I used a pencil to shade the "Pink Orbs".  

I used two stamps from the existing Lavinia Stamps collection to create the bubbles, "Sea Bubbles" and "Bubbles" both stamped in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.  I used a white Posca Pen to shade the bubbles along with a silver glitter Signo Pen.
