Here is a card I made for the Lost Coast Design Cats and Dogs Challenge.  It's part of the month
long Halloween Blog Hop going on right now.

This card uses the Katzelkraft Striped Cat stamp.  It was stamped onto yellow paper with black ink then cut out.  My background is some orange striped scrapbook paper that I stenciled with a dotted stencil using black ink.  I affixed my kitty to the center of the card as shown and added a little witch's hat.  I stenciled in a couple of spiders and die cut the word "eek".  All was attached to a white card base.  Easy and fun!

Hope to see your dog and cat creations on the Portal before the Blog Hop ends on Halloween!

Just Hangin' Out

Happy October and it's been a lot of fun participating in the Lost Coast Designs Portal to Creativity Halloween Blog Hop.

This is a fun ATC coin I made for the Hop using the new Carri's Menagerie - Bats stamp.  It's one of a whole new collection of fun and funky creatures.

I stamped my little bats onto white paper with black ink and colored them in completely with black marker.  I added some tiny googly eyes to each and cut them out.  My background was created using green and dark blue distress inks blended together onto white paper.  I stamped the Grunge Tree with black ink onto my background, then took a silver pen and dotted some "stars" into the night sky.  I "hung" my two little bats from the top, edged the outside of the coin with black ink, added a "scary" word sticker, and done!

Be sure to check out the Blog for all the fun Halloween projects and be sure to check out the Lost Coast website for the new collection of Carri's Menagerie stamps!

Skellie Tag

Here is a fun skellie tag I made for the Lost Coast Designs Halloween Blog Hop where every day during the month of November there will be a new project to inspire you!

I used the RIP stamp for this tag.  I stamped with black ink onto some background paper I had stenciled with yellow and orange inks.  I cut out around the image and mounted it to a piece of vintage script paper then tore around the edges.  Finished off with a piece of vintage crocheted trim and a bone, this was easy and fun and really says Halloween to me!

Please join the fun at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity Halloween Blog Hop!
