Allsorts Challenge Blog: Tags

Over at the Allsorts Challenge Blog there is a new challenge:  Tags.  They want to see tags that you would add to a gift or a tag added to a card - whatever you like.  

Lost Coast Designs is a new sponsor at Allsorts, and as a member of their Design Team, I encourage you to check out the Allsorts Challenge and see what fun and creative tags you can make.  Lost Coast is offering a $10 store voucher for a lucky winner, and all who enter the challenge can claim a 15% discount on any orders placed at Lost Coast Designs while the challenge is running.  Just use the code Allsorts15.

Here is the tag I made using The Cracked Party Cat stamp.
The sentiment stamp Do I Smell Cake? is from Carmen's Veranda clear stamps collection.

Three Monkeys

A card made for the Lost Coast Designs Portal to Creativity mid-July challenge:  "No Body Here"

For this card I used the Three Monkeys stamp from Lost Coast Designs.  I stamped the monkeys onto white paper, colored them with markers, and cut them out.  I die cut two sets of circles to layer, one out of brown card stock and the other from some light brown card stock.  I stamped some script with black ink using one of the ATC Set, Misc 6 stamps onto the lighter, smaller circles and layered them with the larger brown circles, then affixed my monkeys stop the circles as shown.  I then attached these to the center of my card front atop a background paper I had on hand made with acrylic paints and some stencils.  That was layered with a dark brown panel.  I created my words on my computer, printed them out and colored the backgrounds then affixed as shown.
