31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN DAY 1 - Basically Boris and 31 DOH Linky

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.  Welcome to our annual 31 Days of Halloween celebration!
The team will be posting their spooktacular makes every day this month.
The linky will be open all month and we hope you will get your spook on and join the fun.
We will also have another challenge starting on the 15th with a different theme, but you can link up your Halloween inspired makes all month for chances to win Lost Coast dollars. We will be announcing winners on the 5th of the month, so do pop back and see who wowed the team and gets our snazzy blog badge and the coveted Lost Coast dollars.

Let's get this party started!



It's the most spoocktacular time of the year.  Link up your halloween inspired projects.  Real rubber or clear stamping and the theme must be the focus of your project.  A small stamped sentiment in a sea of die cuts or digi images will not qualify to win the prize and you may be deleted!!!!  Bwahahhaaahaha.

Please remember we do have some Challenge Rules to follow so look them over to ensure your entries qualify to win this month's prize!

You are welcome to play in our Challenges using rubber stamp images from any company but if you use any of our Lost Coast Designs or Carmen's Veranda stamps...we love it when you do...then your entry counts as two which doubles your chances of winning in our random prize drawing.


To ensure you all have a fabulous time playing in our Challenges this is how our Prize system works!
The more entries the better the Prize so tell all your friends to join the fun too!

1 - 4 Entries = one winner chosen by the team is awarded our Challenge Winner's Badge

10+ Entries = one randomly picked winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to spend at

and all winners get our snazzy Challenge Winner's Badge to proudly display on their blogs!

If you don't have a blog then no prob, you can still play in our challenges by sharing your projects from public photo sharing sites which includes our Facebook Company Pages for Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda.  Please include our Challenge info and the link back to our challenge in your photo's description!  As long as the privacy setting for your photo is public you're good to go.  See, it's so easy to join the fun!  FYI, you can't link up projects shared in closed Facebook groups! 

Gail here to start the fun.  
I made a simple card featuring Carmen Veranda's Boris Karloff.

I stamped Boris on white card, added some green with a Promarker and then cut with an ATC die (2.5" x 3.5"),  I added it to a black card base and white heat embossed the word Nevermore

Now it's your turn.  Are you up for the challenge?  We can't wait to see your projects!  
Submit your entries in the linky party below by 5 to midnight PST on the 31st and don't forget to follow us so you don't miss anything!  The team will be posting more inspiration throughout the month so check back and join the fun.

Happy Stamping!

I always have to improvise for Halloween but I managed it so I could join in this year! Hope you're having a fun month of (the right sort of) frights!
