An ATC challenge in a trade group I am in was Circles. I was debating what to use, but then I got the most wonderful mail from a friend in the UK. It was a random act of kindness, some beautiful Lavinia Stamps and a hand made card. The sentiment and generosity was very touching. I have always loved the Lavinia Stamps, the magical images and faeries. So had to use them ASAP. I made these ATC's for the Circles challenge :

Lots of embossing on a Dylusions sprayed background. I love that they are dark and mysterious looking.

Hope my swap partners enjoy them :)


  1. Hi Nikki,

    Just a little visit today as I'm still really struggling with many deadlines and things to do or finish before a little break!...
    But these ATCs are so lovely!!! :) What a wonderful gift, you have been spoiled...
    Do you know what, I have this lovely stamp, but I had no time yet to ink it before. You really give me the wish to play with them! :)
    Well, all your ATCs are gorgeous, even if I have not enough time to participate to swaps and trades with you, I often look at what you do... just want to express that I love your makes, whatever the style.
    Hope you are well.
    Hugs, Coco xxx

  2. These are rather cute, aren't they? I'm sure your swap partners will love them!

    I occasionally come across Lavinia stamps at craft shows, but otherwise don't see them for sale here. As I don't own any, perhaps next time I see them, I should look a little harder and buy a couple.


Please leave me some love, your comments make my day :)
