Lost Coast Design December Challenge

Hello Everyone!
It is challenge day!  Time for a new Challenge on the Lost Coast Design Blog- Portal to Creativity!  The new challenge theme is to make a project using:

Board Game Pieces

Such as: Dominoes, scrabble letters, checkers, or any other game piece you can think of.   You may use any stamp company stamps.

For my DT project, I stamped a portion of a Carmen's Veranda image on a domino and used it to accent  a small gift box.

Materials List:
Stamp: Large Crown Tree from Carmen's Veranda

Large Tree Crown

Ink: Saddle Brown and Black Stazon
Domino Game Piece
Metallic Rubs
Spray Inks: Mustard Seed Tattered Angels and Cherry Blossom Walnut Ink
CS: pink
Glastique Finishing Glaze
Small White Gift Box
Cotton Swab


  • Cut a square of pink CS the size of the box top
  • Spray the CS with the spray inks and let dry
  • Glue the CS to the top of the box
  • Add a large pearl to each corner

  •  Glue the ribbon to the edge of the box top
  • Tie a bow in ribbon and glue to box

  • Sand the domino with sandpaper and wipe clean
  • Apply the Metallic Rubs to the domino with a cotton swab and let dry- using a heat gun works well
  • Stamp the upper right portion of the Large Crown Tree on the domino with Saddle Brown first and then Black Stazon inks
  • Be careful not to wiggle the stamp
  • Cover the domino with the glaze and let dry
  • When dry, glue to box

Fill the box with jewelry, chocolates, trinkets, a gift card, or anything else! Wouldn't it be cute in  Christmas colors?    This box will be under my tree with a little something in it.
Can't wait to see your project!!
