Day 16 of 31 Days of 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!
Cathy here with Day 16 of 31 days of Halloween. Can you believe it is day 16 already.  
 I decided to make a banner. This is a easy banner to make. First off I got the banner from a store. Mine I picked up at Target in the dollar area.
Then I had a plan in mind. I wanted to use the small skeleton on the panels of the banner. When I opened up the banner I saw that there was 3 different sizes of panels. That is when I saw my small skeleton would not fit on all the panels. So I grabbed my flying skull to use on my smaller panels.   
So I stamped the small skeleton 4 times on white card stock. Cut out. Then I glued on panel.
Then I skipped a panel.
I didn't take a photo of the blank panel.
Next I stamped flying skull 3 times on white cardstock and cut out. Then I glued on panel
All done.
Hang where you want.

31 Days of Halloween Day 15 - The Masked 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!


Welcome from Laurie to Day 15 of our 31 day Halloween Blog Hop!  For Day 15, I've got a friendly little fellow here who not only fits the bill for Halloween but also works with our Animal Challenge which is also going on right now on the Portal.  So this is a two-fer!



I created this little guy by stamping the cat image onto white paper with black ink.  I used the Cat Triangle stamp from Lost Coast.  I used Copic markers to color him in Halloween colors then glued a little black mask over his face.  He is mounted onto a piece of Halloween paper with a couple of little cobwebs in the upper corners and two little black pumpkins with Halloween messages that I cut out of a larger piece of scrapbook paper.  He's about ATC sized so could be either an ATC or a smaller card.  There's a whole collection of these kitty cats at Lost Coast Designs so check them out!

31 Days of Halloween Day 14 - Haunted

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 back to the 31 Days of Halloween.  I hope you are enjoying all the projects you are seeing here and on the other blogs that are participating.  It's a lot of work for the designers but it's something we truly enjoy doing.

Today, I have a tag to share with you.
I started by adding some Dylusions paint in red and black to the top of the tag then spraying with water until it ran down.  Once I dried that, I went in with some sepia colored ink and added some highlights.  I stamped RIP on a separate piece of cardstock, cut him out, and colored with pencils (isn't he creepy?).  The "Haunted" is a sticker I painted to blend with the background.  The skeleton at the bottom right is something I found while digging through my Halloween stash.  Lastly, I drew lines around the tag and finished it off with some black fiber.

 If you are hopping in order, your next visit will be to Tee.  Have fun, and thank you for joining us for the 31 Days of Halloween.

Don't forget, you have a chance to win $10 in LCD/CV rubber. Just link up your Halloween entry HERE.  Halloween not for you? We are also running an Animal Challenge this month. Link up your Animal entry HERE. Feeling extra creative?  Enter both!

Happy Stamping!

Can't Stop The Feeling - 31 Days of Halloween Day 13

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!

Woo Hoo day 13 already of the 31 Days of Halloween blog hop, and to help celebrate this, and more importantly my (Sue's) birthday, here's Sir Justin of Timberlake and his backing dancers.



For this one I've used Dancing Skeletons and Domino Shrine, and a Tando shrine. I've used my Gelli plate (well I have to use it for something) for my reverse stamping.

Remember same time, same place tomorrow for more wonderful inspiration from one of my teamies, and you should also need to join in the fun with this and our animal challenges.
Have a great day, and thanks very much for looking xx

31 Days of Halloween Day 12 - Mad

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!

Good morning all and welcome back another day of the 31 Days of Halloween.  We are in Day 12 and once again, it's my turn to share some Halloween fun.


I started out by stamping Cheshire Cat onto a piece of cardstock, cutting him out, and coloring with pencils.  I then took a 4" x 4" art tile and sprayed it with a couple of different colors of orange ink.  When it was dry, I used an embossing folder to add texture and then swiped over it with black ink.  I printed out the sentiment on my computer and added it to the top.  Finally, I added a few enamel dots at two of the corners.

If you are hopping in order, your next visit will be to Tee.  Have fun, and thank you for joining us for the 31 Days of Halloween.

31 Days of Halloween Day 11 - Pumpkin Scarecrow

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!


This is Laurie, and it's Day 11 of the 31 Days of Halloween.  It's been such fun for all of us on the Design Team and I hope it's been a lot of fun for you as well and that you have been entering your creations here on the Portal.

I decided to move away from the more macabre side of Halloween and do something a bit more mainstream.  This is an ATC but could easily be made into a card.


I used the Pumpkin Scarecrow stamp from Carmen's Veranda.  I stamped this guy with black into onto white card stock.  I colored him with Copic markers and used a white gel pen to highlight his teeth and a gold marker to highlight the buttons and stars on his jacket.  My background is a piece of scripted Halloween paper that I cut to ATC size and edged with black ink.  I used the 3 Mini Birds stamp from Lost Coast Designs with black ink and added the birds around the edges.  I attached a black cobweb sticker to the upper right corner and stamped the numbers 31 on the left corner.  Finishing touch is to tuck a little Halloween message into my scarecrow's right hand.
