Day 19 of the 31 Days of Halloween - The Farmer and His Wife Party!

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!  It's already day 19 of the 31 day Halloween Blog Hop, so I hope you have been busy making some fun Halloween stamped goodies!

For this one, I decided to use a non-Halloween stamp and make it Halloween-y! 


I used the American Gothic Party stamp, which is one of my favorite Lost Coast Design stamps.  I stamped my image with black ink onto white card stock.  I added some color to their faces and colored the farmer's vest orange, in the spirit of the season.  I then cut out some of the background behind the figures so I could use my own background.  I mounted my stamped image onto a blue/gray background I created with some Distress Oxide Inks.  I tucked a shining full moon into the left corner and added a couple of bats flying around.  Last I gave Mr. and Mrs. both witch's hats and parked a pumpkin in the lower left corner.  I colored the frame with brown marker and used gold marker to outline the inside edge - trying to give it the look of a vintage picture frame.  Then mounted this to white then black card stock.  A fab Halloween card!!

He's a No Hoper - 31 Days of Halloween Day 17

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 and happy Tuesday, it's Sue here with Day 17 of our 31 Days of Halloween blog hop.  Today it's the turn of my hopeless raven.



This is quite a large wooden tag that's been painted with DecoArt fluid acrylics. The beautiful Goth Raven has been stamped on a Gelli print.
I hope you're enjoying our 31 days of spookiness, and that you're also playing along.
Have a great day, and see you soon! xx

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.

Join the fun and enter your own Halloween creations!

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!
