Women Rule The World -with Lost Coast Designs

Hello Everyone!!

Welcome to my post for the Lost Coast Designs Women Rule the World Event.  In honor of Mother's Day, this month we are showcasing all the "woman" stamps.  There are so many lovely stamps to choose from.  See the catalog here. Each designer will be adding projects on the Portal to Creativity blog so be sure to stop by and check out the projects.  You may link up your own "woman" theme project using any stamp company you like--must have some stamping.  There is a prize too! $10 gift certificate to Lost Coast Designs.

Now , for my Women themed projects.  Well, if you know me, you know that sometimes I can't stop stamping once I get going...LOL  I started stamping this stamp and kept changing the ink colors each time.  I inked the stamp with two colors of distress ink and then stamped.  There were so many great color combinations to try I had to keep going.  I will share two with you today and three more on Sunday.  The backgrounds are all hand made as well.

  1. Love these cards. The first one is my favorite. It is old timey in appearance. Love that bow on the second card. It makes the card pop and is almost surreal in its effect. Bravo!

    Hugs and Blessings


  2. Stunning cards! Moms do rule, remember it's the hand that rocks the cradle. :-). I especially love that first one.
