Valentine's Day Event with Lost Coast Design

Hello Everyone!
The Lost Coast Design and Carmen's Veranda Valentine's Day Event is in full swing on the Portal to Creativity Blog. Head over to check out all the other great projects made by the Design Team.  And there is also a chance to win a prize by commenting and letting  us know what you like about the stamps.  Fun, fun, fun!!

I have four projects for you today that have a Valentines theme.
****I used the same stamp on three of the cards and varied the ink and CS colors.

****For the fourth card, I used a wide border stamp to make a background.

 Here we go with the fist set of projects: Lily Love Three Ways

Stamp: Lily of the Valley Background from Carmen's Veranda

Ink: Ginger Adirondack and Black Soot Distress ink
CS: Gray and Rust
Sheer Brown Ribbon

  • The stamp was partially inked with the Ginger pad and then I filled in the other areas with  the black pad.  And, then stamped on gray CS.  
  • I added a spritz of Glimmer Mist too.

Ink: Oregano Adirondack and Barn Door Distress Marker
CS: Red, green, and white

  • Stamped with Oregano ink on green CS.  
  • Ink the square heart section on the stamp with the Distress maker and stamp on white CS; cut out.
  • Added some sparkle with a Wink of Stella marker

Ink: Stream and Ginger Adirondack
CS: Pink and light teal
Teal ribbon

  • Partially ink the stamp with the Ginger ink  pad and come back with the Stream pad to completely cover the stamp; stamp on pale pink CS
  • Color the leaves with a green Copic marker
  • Cut a small slit in bottom of card and insert ribbon.  Tie ribbon in bow.

Fourth Project: Love Borders

Stamps: Grunge Border 2" and License Plate Alphabet both from Lost Coast Designs
Ink: Lake Mist Adirondack; Gray Flannel Memento
CS: Taupe, pink, grayish green
Gray satin ribbon

  • Make a card from pink CS and sponge Lake Mist ink on edges
  • With Lake Mist ink, stamp the Grunge Border 2" twice on gray/green CS and once on pink; cut to size---I made sure I included the heart on the pink piece.  
  • Add a layer of taupe CS to the border pieces

  • Stamp the letters on the pink and gray/green CS with Gray Flannel ink; cut out and add to card
