Who we are and what we do
The art of card making, greetings cards and other card picture projects, has now been made available to all thanks to introduction of creative rubber stamps. Birthday Cards, Christmas Cards, Valentines Day Cards, the list is endless.
Tracey Dutton of Lavinia Stamps has introduced a unique range of see through clear based stamps based upon elements of the landscape. Trees, flowers, leaves, which make up the scenery, with the addition of wildlife including birds and butterflies. And for those with a vivid imagination, there are the fairies and fairy castles – some with intricate detail, some in bold silhouette.
The stamps are used with Versa fine archival instant dry pigment ink pads and the Speedball Brayer roller with Ranger’s Adirondack ink pads to create a scenic background. With these tools there should be no limits to your creativity.
Using Matt or Satin card for your card making projects imparts a professional finish, which can be complimented though the use of accessories such as Mica powders,Liquid Pearls,Glitter e.t.c.
The self adhesive stamps are supplied as clear stamps which are attached to a clear acrylic block. Tracey progressed from rubber stamps to polymer stamps. Being see-through, this material helps the hobbyist facilitate accurate positioning on their card making and other art and craft projects. The clear acrylic blocks are available through our shop.
Tracey Dutton is based in the market town of Ruthin, nestled at the very heart of the beautiful Vale of Clwyd in North Wales. Tracey can supply all your art, craft and card making supplies and materials. Payment can be by Cheque, Credit Card or by PayPal
It has been brought to our attention the word Zentangle is actually someone else’s registered trademark, so we have had to stop using Zentangle to describe our newest range of stamps which have been renamed to simply “Zen”. Thank you
