Lavinia Challenge #15 ~ Fairies to the Rescue

Hello crafting friends and welcome to challenge #15 at Lavinia World,
where the theme is always Anything Goes!

Sometimes, all you need is an old calendar and a few Lavinia stamps, and voila you have a quick and easy card in no time!  Let me show you how.

Like most of you I love beautiful papers and tend to hoard them.  However, when I was going through a 2016 calendar, I saw this beautiful wintry landscape, and when this card popped into my head, I knew that I had to use it right away 😀

It's the Fairy Foragers going to Santa's rescue!
Not too sure that Santa needs rescuing, but it's nice all the same, that the fairies are going to check up on him  :-)

Since the calendar was made of a semi gloss paper, I scanned the wintry landscape and then printed it on semi gloss photocopy paper.  All that was left to do was to stamp the greeting using StazOn Jet Black ink.

As you can see this was a very easy card to put together and it didn't take me more than 15 minutes.  As always,  here is the list of materials I used to create this card. Each is linked to the Lavinia World store for your convenience.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed your visit and will make a project to come play along with us.  Although our theme is always Anything Goes, you do have to use physical stamps, either rubber or clear. 

 NO DIGI stamps allowed. 

The winner of the challenge will be able to proudly display our Lavinia World winner's badge on their blog, and receive a $15 gift certificate to the Lavinia World store.  Lavinia World offers the complete range of Lavinia stamps and papers.  Although Lavinia Stamps is from the UK, Lavinia World is a US based store that ships worldwide.

Also, please note that we are not part of any other entity or Facebook group that carries Lavinia stamps.  ONLY the cards posted to Lavinia World Challenges will be entered into the drawing for the Lavinia World prize. Also note that the gift certificates are ONLY valid at Lavinia World. 

 For more inspiration, visit our Challenge Blog and see all the wonderful and creative projects my team mates made for you.
We'd love for you to follow us on Facebook and Instagram too!

We now have a public Facebook Group called Anything Lavinia, where you can share your projects, interact with the Design Team, get inspired to create your own projects,  and ask any questions you may have about the wonderful Lavinia Stamps.  There are also challenges and prizes to be won!  You have until Monday, December 16, 2019 to enter your project in either the Facebook Album or on our blog.  One winner will be picked by our Designers.

Till next time,
