Vintage Hardware with Lost Coast Designs

Hello Everyone!
We are experiencing super cold weather here in good old Michigan.  The temp is up to 13 degrees F.  Brrr.  And, there is snow to shovel.  I think I will share some vintage cards with you instead of shoveling the snow.   I will get to the snow later.  Today's projects were made with stamps from Lost Coast Designs.  ----My husband is doing the snow shoveling!  Yea!

Card One

Materials List:
Inks: Mossy, Pewter, and Patina Mixed Media; Faded Jeans Distress; Black
CS: White; Pacific Point - Stampin' Up
Piercing Tool
Glue Pad
Gold Leaf Foil


  • Make a card from Pacific Point CS
  • On White CS, stamp the Woodgrain background stamp with Mossy ink
  • Stamp the hardware elements with three Mixed Media inks and Black die ink
  • Distress with Faded Jeans

  • Pierce edges of the stamped piece
  • Add to the card base
  • Use a glue pad to apply glue to the edges
  • Press the gold leaf foil into the glue and brush away the excess

Card Two

Materials List:
Inks: Toffee Crunch, Black, Olive Grove, Rich Cocoa Memento inks
CS: White; Brown; and Green
Versa Mark pad
Clear Embossing Powder
Metallic Rubs
Heat Gun


  • Make a card from Green CS and layer with Brown
  • On White CS, stamp the Woodgrain Background with Toffee Crunch ink
  • Stamp the hardware with the Memento inks listed

  • Apply the Versa Mark ink to the entire surface
  • Add the Clear Embossing Powder and heat set
  • Add to card base
  • Apply the metallic rubs to the edges

Love that glossy look from the heat embossing.  I would use these cards for a masculine birthday.  Or just to send to someone special.

I would like to enter my Vintage hardware cards in:

  1. Love both versions of that vintage panel, although the foiled one might have the edge as it's shiny... Lovely stamps too!

  2. Both cards Karen are really lovely x

  3. Hi Karen!
    I used to live in Michigan too. The snow is never-ending. Stamp while you can. The snow will still be there. :)
    Thanks for sharing your card with us this week for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. I love those images. And you really have a great eye for color.
    Stay warm!
