I Got That Double Trouble Feline

Hello.  Welcome.  Gosh, double trouble and triple ripple!!!   I'm over at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity today.  It's Day 22 of our 31 Days of Halloween celebration, AND we have a Cats and/or Dogs challenge going on as well, AND today sees the start of the 2018 Cat Lovers Hop and Lost Coast Designs is one of this years sponsors!!!  So hop here, there and elsewhere to check out my project details, and all the feline fun and find out how you can win yourself some Lost Coast dollars!!   

For me October culminates with a huge thanksgiving/harvest/pumpkin celebration and I made myself a little Trick or Treat sign to add some festive spook!!

I've used Carmen's Veranda adorable Tabby Cat and White Cat, and Lost Coast Designs License Plate Alphabet and the beautiful Circle Frame stamp, and lots and lots of scraps for my sentiment.  The purple scraps box is looking quite empty!  Hurrah!!

Strings of Beans

Hello.  Welcome.  Let's have coffee!!

I used a piece of Oh I Love This Patterned Paper and think it might be Basic Grey?? as it just seemed to fit the coffee theme.  I stamped and fussy cut the Unity Girl stamp and coloured with Promarkers.  I used a scrap and cut the tag from Stamplorations Tag O'Coffee set, shortened it a bit and tinted it with Tea Dye and Walnut Stain distress inks.  I cut the Stamplorations sentiment Java Great Day from a scrap of gold mirror card.  

Hope you Java Great Day too.  Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz 

Oops, nearly forgot to announce the winner of my coffee card

On Wings She Flies

Hello.  Welcome.  The Rubber Dance challenge has moved to fb and I have made a little inspiration piece using the colours, red, orange and purple, and also the theme, greeting card.  

I stamped Rubber Dance Large Postoid with Royal purple ink and masked.  Then I took the two large Maple stamps and starting with Fossilised Amber, then Spiced Marmalade, then Ripe Persimmon and finally Worn Lipstick distress ink, I stamped then randomly to make my leafy background.  I used my waterbrush to add Wilted Violet distress around the postoid frame and stamped and embossed the sentiment from Beautiful Words on a piece of red card.  I cut it out and added some black archival to the edges.  

You have until the end of the month to join up your make using Rubber Dance stamps for a chance to win a grab bag of stamps.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

Young Rocker

Hello.  Welcome.  I love this image and it's a perfect card for a young rocker I know.

I stamped the music staves three times and part of the sentiment once on a white card base with black archival.  Then I stamped the unicorn image on book paper, coloured with Promarkers, gel pens, a silver plot marker and fussy cut.  Stamps from Aall and Create #103.  Rock on!!

Chi Chi Wow Wow

Hello.  Welcome.  Here's a little canine fun with Carmen's Veranda Chihuahua stamp.  

Isn't that sentiment just perfect!!  Yes, let's all have a cookie!!  Look at that puppy!!!  Such a character!  I had to add the witch hat cos it's still 31 Days of Halloween at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity and now we have added a Cat and Dog challenge.  So if you aren't feeling 'Weeny then roll out the felines and canines and join the fun.  Or combine both for double the fun and double the chance to win Lost Coast dollars.  Hop over to the Portal for more details on how I made my puppy card and to link up your makes.  All stamps by Carmen's Veranda.

Moosely Confused

Hello.  Welcome.  CASology have Punctuation as a cue word this week.  This cute moose came to mind.

This is Lost Coast Designs Carri's Menagerie large Moose.  He just looks so puzzled!!!  So I stamped him with a recently reinked black Archival ink pad, added a Sizzix die cut question mark and a little wash of Stormy Sky distress for him to stand on.  Standing on a stormy sky is probably confusing for everyone!!

There are a whole flock of these cute silhouette animals over at Lost Coast Designs.  They come as a pair in two sizes and are just adorbs!!
