Lavinia Stamps new dies

Good afternoon Lovelies, long time no post hahaha!

I've been busy looking after my gorgeous 5 week old foster baby boy, love him to bits but get very little time for crafting, but I did manage to have a play with the wonderful new dies that Tracey Dutton from Lavinia Stamps designed, they are big and cut like a hot knife through butter, I've had no problems getting the bit's out either, they just fall out, fabulous designs, very different from anything else out there, pop along and check them out here

So here's a few I've made so far;

My first one I used the gorgeous Pegasus on White Linen texture card, I used the waste as an aperture, my background is a simple swipe of Silk Acrylics.

My second one I used, Goosebumps and once dry I used Distress inks in Dusty Concord, Chipped Sapphire and Faded Jeans.

My final one I wanted a Scandinavian look, I used a hound tooth back ground stamp with Red Archival ink on Kraft card to create the background, I cut the Deer out twice and stamped him with a Knit style stamp from a Sheena Douglass christmas set, also in Red Archival and decoupaged him, I used Picket Fence Distress Marker to colour the snowflakes and I added pearls to the centers, which don't show up so well in the photo.

I hope you like my cards and feel inspired to check out Tracey's new dies, thank you for visiting today, have a great rest of the day xx Zoe xx
