31 Day's of Halloween, day 21. Evil eye.

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hi there, Riet here,
How are you all doing. 
Are you all alive?
Not even a vampire bite?
Well watch out than,
Because here comes a card with a little monster.
Dont let it bite you.
Hahahaha.

I used for this card: 
Stamps,
Evil eye,  http://www.lost-coast-designs.com/teri.html
Spiderwebs, http://www.lost-coast-designs.com/backgrounds.html
Door and window set, http://www.lost-coast-designs.com/sets_notpeople.html

Distress oxide: 
Black soot.
Wilted violet.
Spiced marmalade.
Fossilized amber.
Musterd seed.
Distress micro glaze
White gellpen.
Color pencils
Red marker
Stazon black


For the spiderweb background I dabbed the paper in distress oxide,
 musterd seed, fossilized amber and spiced marmelade.
Let it dry and then stamp with black stazon the spiderwebs.
I have turned the stamp repeatedly and stamped a lot of times over each other.

Now, for the peace with the evil eye stamp.
I positioned the evil eye so that the tree extends over the edges of the paper.
Masked him with masking tape.
On the window stamp you put some Distress micro glaze.
Stamp it behind the evil eye.
With distress oxide, Wilted violet, Spiced marmalade,
Fossilized amber and Musterd seed.
Make some puddles with the ink and water and pull the paper through.
You will see a faint print of the window, looks like a watermark.
Remove the mask and color the evil eye stamp. Mat both cards and glue them together.


Now I am very curious about what you will make for the challenge. 
So come on over and join our challenge.
Then you can win some rubber stamps.

31 Days of Halloween #20 / Challenge #109 Furry Friends - Halloween Kitty

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

We are now into our double challenge in October festivities.

We're combining the 31 Days of Halloween AND Challenge #109 - Furry Friends!  
Of course you don't have to do both but it's always fun to see what we can come up with.

Today I wanted to share my sweet Halloween Kitty....


To create this card I stamped the Large Peekaboo Kitty on dark grey cardstock using VersaMark ink which was then embossed with Black Mboss embossing powder. The kitty was then shaded with white pigment ink and glitter gel pens to color the ears, nose and eyes. The kitty was then fussy cut and popped onto a card that I had added some bits of halloween pattern paper in my stash.  I stamped bits and pieces of the Spiderwebs Background image onto a piece of taupe colored cardstock to which the sentiment was added.


Happy Meow-loween!
Roni

Supplies:

Carmen's Veranda - Large Peekaboo Kitty
Lost Coast Design - Spiderwebs Background
Imagine - VersaMark, Mboss embossing powder, StazOn Pigment Ink - Cotton
Glitter Gel Pen
Pattern Paper, Cardstock

31 Days of Halloween # 19: October Furry Friends Halloween

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Welcome from Laurie for another Halloween project with a bit of a twist:  we are featuring "Furry Friends' Halloween" during this part of the month long challenge.  So think Halloween with the added fun element of any animal you fancy!

This project features the Circus Dog Stamp Set from Lost Coast Designs and was pretty quick and easy to make.

I stamped four of the circus dogs with black ink onto white card stock and fussy cut them out.  I have a fun collage sheet with lots of different size and shapes of witches hats so cut out four of them.
My background is a piece of Halloween scrapbook paper edged with black ink and layered with a white panel.  I glued a witch hat to each of my circus dogs and then affixed them with foam tape to my card front.  I added a bit of black trim to the top border, the word "boo" and some bats scattered about.  That's it!  Easy peasy but lots of fun.

Show us your furry friends in their Halloween costumes or settings for a chance to win some free stamps.  Don't forget to include some rubber stamping in your projects!

Day 18 of the 31 days of Halloween challenge

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Cathy here with day 18 of the 31 days of Halloween challenge.
Stamp used:

This card was really simple to make a but together. I think the longest or "hardest" part was picking out the Halloween bits to go on the card and where they go.
I started out with a black card base and layered a orange plaid pattern paper on it. Next I made a tag from Kraft cardstock and stamped More cats the sitting pretty cat onto it. 
Lastly I dumped out my Halloween bits and started finding the right pieces to make my card. Once I had it the way I wanted I started gluing it all down. 

 
Right now we have 2 challenges going on. Furry friends here.

The 31 days of Halloween here.

The sale is still going on.

31 Days of Halloween, Day 16 - Devil in Disguise.

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hi folks, Riet here.
Today its my turn to post on the blog.
Don't you love it, spooky and creepy furry creatures.
On this card I used the Devil in Disguise cat.
I wanted to create a feeling of hell.
So I used the shaving foam technique.

What do you need:
Alcohol ink,
Sunshine yellow
Red pepper
Pitch black
A tray to fit your paper
Shaving foam
Stazon black ink
White gel pen
markers or pencils

Spray a layer of foam in the tray.
Drop some drops of yellow ink on the top.
Try to mix the ink in the top layer so that it turns evenly yellow.
Now you make a line of drops with the red ink. Not everywhere but spread over the foam.  Very carefully you spread the ink a bit with a spatula.
You do the same with the black, but don't use to much.
Remember, we are trying to make it look like the flames of hell.
Put your paper on the foam and leave it a moment.
Pick up the paper and remove the foam with a wide spatula.
If this doesn't work for you, you can find tutorials of this technique on you tube.

Now you stamp the little devil cat on a peace of paper and color it.
Cut it out and glue it on your background.
I glued the text separately on the card.
But that is of course not necessary.

I hope you have fun making your furry friend for the challenge
We love to see what you make. Please read our rules first.
Don't forget the 31 Days of Halloween Challenge is also running until the end of the month.
