Sentiments: Coronation


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!

Hello everyone, Liesbeth here showing you a card with lots of words and sentiments for our Sentiments challenge! I stamped the Coronation stamp with black ink onto a piece of Gelli printed paper and also onto a seperate white paper. I cut out the girl from the white piece and sponged her softly with Distress ink Vintage Photo and glued her onto the couloured card. On a seperate piece of white paper I stamped the sentiment ,Not all who wander are lost'(Travel quotes) and cut it out. I sticked it on the card, and added the card on pink, white and black cardstock.  There's still a few days left to join the fun and win prizes! Hope to see you!

Sentiment in Focus: Housewife

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 again from Laurie to let you know that you still have almost a week to enter you projects in this latest challenge here on the Portal:  Sentiment in Focus.  For this challenge you willl be using a saying or sentiment that has at least five words.  Be sure to feature rubber stamping in all your projects too!

For this one I used the Housewife stamp from Lost Coast Designs and the Fairy Godmother clear stamp from Carmen's Veranda.

My background was made using  a stencil and some pink Distress Oxide Ink on a scrap paper that I had spritzed with a bit of green Distress Spray.  I stamped my housewife onto white card stock and fussy cut her out.  Next I restamped her, first onto some pink scrapbook paper then onto some flowered scrapbook paper.  From the pink paper I cut our her dress, and from the flowered paper I cut out her apron.  I superimposed these onto my original stamped image and glued them in place.  I added some color to her with my Copic Sketch markers and added some fancy pearls to her fuzzy slippers!  

My sentiment was stamped with black ink onto a white square that I had edged in black.  I glued this to the upper left corner of my front as shown, then added my housewife below that.  And that's a wrap!

You have until September 29th to enter your projects for a chance to win some free stamps from Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda.  What are you waiting for!!

#130 Sentiments in focus.

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,
Today a card that is about the sentiment.
So I kept the environment of the text calm.
I used the Florish (large) with gold embossing powder.
A nice stamp that you can use in so many ways.
And of course my favorite sentiment from Carmen's Veranda, Child of the moon.
I started by applying 2 colors of ink to the background by running the card through ink with water.
Stamp the florish with versamark and sprinkle the print with the gold embossing powder.
Heat the embossing powder with the heat tool.
Colored the florish with pink and green watercolor paint and stamped the sentiment with a dark pink.
I hope you join our challenge, would be so much fun!
And you have a chance to win stamps.
Until next time and have fun stamping.

Give me Hugs

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!
 
 Hello Portal Peeps!!  Gail here again.  I am just having a blast keeping the Sentiment in Focus this fortnight.  You know Carmen's Veranda has the best sentiments, and it doesn't take much to make a quick card to send love, hugs and a laugh.   I've used my easy formula of Lost Coast Designs/Carmen's Veranda background, image of your choice and Carmen's Veranda sentiment.  
I used Carmen's Veranda Dice Background stamped with Shabby Shutters distress ink on a yellow card base.  I stamped Carmen's Veranda Tabby Cat on some DCWV cloud patterned paper and finished with Carmen's Veranda $8 Million sentiment.

I hope you get time to join the Sentiment in Focus challenge

Free Bad Advice

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!
 
Hello Portal Peeps!   Gail here today with some Free Bad Advice. 
Ask me anything!  Bwahahhaaahhaaaa.

I've used Lost Coast Designs Leaves Background and Carmen's Veranda Bad Advice sentiment.

I inked the edges of the Leaves stamp with Monarch Orange and Carnation archival ink, leaving a space in the middle uninked.  Then I reinked the whole stamp with Dandelion archival and restamped to fill in all the gaps.  A stamp positioner is kinda a must for this technique.

I stamped the sentiment on a piece of vellum with black archival ink and when it was dry I added a little glue behind the big letters and positioned it on my card.  Then I punched some holes and added some copper leaf brads.

You need to include at least 5 words on your stamped anything for a chance to win.
Thanks for visiting.  Hugz

Sentiment in Focus: Baptizing A Cat

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 this new challenge going on the last half of September:  Sentiment in Focus.  For this challenge, we want you to create a project/s using a sentiment of at least 5 words.  Be sure that rubber stamping is the main focus of your work. too!

For this one, I used one of the cat stamps from the Party Cat Hats Set from Lost Coast Designs and the Baptize A Cat clear stamp from Carmen's Veranda big collection of great sayings.  For this background I used a gelli print created on a piece of decorative tissue paper that I had adhered to a piece of card stock.  

I stamped my cat with black ink onto white card stock and fussy cut him out.  I colored him with gray Copic Sketch Markers and added a touch of green to his eyes.  I traced around the hat that the stamped cat is wearing and using that template, cut out another hat from flowered paper, affixing it to the cat's head atop the original hat.  I added a little flower for some extra color and affixed the cat with foam tape to the left side of my card front.

My sentiment is stamped onto off white paper with black ink.  After cutting it into a square shape, I edged it with black ink and attached it to the upper right corner.  Final step was to outline the card front with black ink to give it some definition.

Please  come join us for this fun new challenge using you favorite phrase or sentiment stamps.  You just might be the lucky winner of some free stamps from Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda!
