Hello My Dear stamper Friends:

I am sharing with you today a one layer twilight card that I made using as the focal point  the whimsical "Silhouette Fairy" stamp from "Lost Coast Designs" ...
among other stamps from LCD as well as

silhouette fairy front

I first started by sponging my background.
I  used my neon inks and made this dusk night color background...

silhouette fairy detail

I then heat emboss with white powder the "concentric circles" stamp background.
added some feathers at the edges with black ink and embellish the card with some die cuts from Memory Box...\

The word "magic" comes in a set of 3 words: dream, love and magic... great set of "dictionary definition words" to have

silhouette fairy side view

a side view...

NOTE: Lost Coast Designs will be next Month in September in Germany and in Norway, so if you live in one of these countries do not forget to stop by and say hello and grab some wonderful stamps...or go to their website and order online.
Remember you can only get these stamps through stamp shows visiting your area or at the online store!!!

Border Stamps and Washi Tape #3

Hello Everyone!
Here is the last in my series of Border stamps with Washi Tape projects.  I used a silver and gray color scheme with the Dragonfly Border Stamp to create this fun yet elegant card.

Love how the dragonflies dance across the card.  See more pics and more info on my blog, Dreaming and Creating.  See you next time with my Words project for the current challenge.

Art Journal page with Manga Goth Girl.

Hi everyone,

As I also love mixed media and art journals I made this Art Journal page to show you our stamps are not for card making only. I used 4 different Lost Coast stamps to create this page.
Of course I used one of the lovely new Manga Goth girl stamps as a focal point. For the background I used a Nellann Roberts stamp mat (which I stamped and then sprayed with some water to get a bit of a grungy look), the domino border and a dictionary "Love" stamp.

I took the picture showing you the spiral bound piece on the left so you can see it's really in my A-5 Art Journal and not on a card. Hope you like it  :)

Three Faces Note Card

Hi everyone! Leslie here, sharing a super easy (and fun, I tell ya!) note card created with three of the face tiles in the awesome Lost Coast Designs Medium Square Tiles Set. The background is matted on some pretty gold metallic and then red cardstock, and the only embellishments are a ribbon bow and some Gumdrops. I just love how this turned out! ;)

For more details on this note card, please see my blog post at Love To Scrap!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Border Stamps with Washi Tape #2

Hello Coasties!
I am back with the second of my projects that combine Lost Coast Desings Border Stamps and Washi Tape.   I used the Star Border again on this card.  I chose a gold color pallet and a sparkly twine to make an elegant Congratulations card.  The sentiment is from the Party Words set.

See all the the materials and more pics on my blog here.  I have one more project with Border stamps and Washi tape to share.  I used the Dragonfly Border on that project....  See you soon!

And now the new challenge: use words and/ or letters. I love letters and words in my work, it gave something extra's to your art work. For this challenge I used a stamp with words in the coat of the little boy and a dictionary stamp.

I hope that you all will create something, you've got time until the 25th of August 24.00.
