Hello Everyone!
I wanted to share with you two projects I made with Lost Coast Design Stamps new release.  The backgrounds are made with a Gelli Plate.  I made two cards with the background paper and added different ribbons to each piece.

Materials List:
Stamps: Light Mandelas from Lost Coast Designs
Ink: Jet Black Archival Ranger
CS: White, black, rose, Early Espresso Stampin' Up
Mono printing  Plate
Acrylic Paints
Empty Plastic ribbon reel

 Card #1


  • Make card bases from Early Espresso and rose CS
  • Backgrounds: add acrylic paints to the surface of mono printing Plate with a brayer
  • Press the plastic ribbon reel into the paint and remove
  • Press a sheet of white CS onto the mono printing Plate and smooth surface with hand
  • Pull CS up and let dry
  • Cut background into pieces to fit your card size

  • Stamp the Light Mandelas with Jet Black ink inside the circles made by the ribbon reel --Just amazing how well the stamps fit into the circles!  
  • Add  the background paper to the card bases
  • Add rhinestones around the circular motifs
  • Wrap ribbon around card 
  • Staple  additional ribbon pieces to wrapped ribbon
  • Tie a piece of ribbon in a  knot and glue to other ribbons
                                                           Card #2

  • On card two, Cut around one of the circular motifs so that it extends pasts the edge--I cut this by hand with scissors
  • Wrap yarn around card and tie ribbons onto yarn

Love this stamp set!!  Check out all the fun, artistic images available from Lost Coast Designs.  The images also look fab on white CS  colored with markers!!
