Vintage Cards with Lost Coast Designs

Hi Dreamers.
I am back for a second post today!  I did not want all my vintage loving friends to feel left out because  I posted all those cutesy cards  earlier!  LOL.  So, lets get all inky and distressed with some really cool Lost Coast Design stamps.    On both  cards, I used a mono printing Plate to make the backgrounds.

To make this background, apply paint to the mono printing  Plate and press an embossing folder into the paint.  Press paper into the plate.  

When paint is dry, stamp Harmony Angel stamp with Onyx Black Versafine ink.  Color with Distress Markers.  

I added some blue rhinestones, gold cording, and gold leafing for an extra bit of bling.  

The second card is also made with the mono printing Plate.   I used an embossing folder with clocks. 

                                                 I stamped Times Flies with Onyx Black ink.   

I used some gold ribbon and green rhinestones to finish off this card.

Love these cool images!!  And, the mono printing Plate is pretty fun to work with.  Working with the Gelli Plate definitely qualifies as "Something Messy" over at the Simon Says stamp and Show challenge.

Have a great Valentine's day!  Love ya.


  1. Love the fun feel of both of these...messy is good! :)

  2. Beautiful cards! The Gelli plate looks like so much fun! It makes stunning backgrounds! Thank you so much for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. Hugs, Sandra

  3. These are so cool, Karen... first things that have seriously tempted me towards a Gelli plate with the feeling it might fit in with my crafting style... that second card is a real treat!
