UPDATE:  Thank you everyone for visiting and leaving me such wonderful comments, I truly appreciate them all :0)

I'm sharing 3 projects with you here today featuring Lost Coast Designs rubber stamps and StencilGirl stencils.  I'll be blogging each project in more detail over the next 2 weeks on the Lost Coaster's Review blog so please stop by if you'd like to find out more deets on each project ;0)

BEWARE THE GUARD CAT!

For this card I used 2 of Lost Coast Designs newest stamps - CityScape and the Devil in Disguise kitty makes the perfect guard cat don't you think ;0)  To give you the impression that the entire city is protected by a whole army of guard cats I used the 6 x 6 StencilGirl Cat stencil to create the cat shadow background and I hand wrote the sentiment with a black Micron marker.

INKY BIRD

For this card I used 2 of Lost Coast Designs new stamps - Feather Bird and Feathers for the background.  I also made my own decorative mat by using StencilGirl's 6 x 6 Feathers 6 stencil to create the feathery abstract pattern.

CATS ARE ENIGMAS

For more deets on this card please visit Lost Coaster's Review blog March 26, click HERE!

  For this card I used Lost Coast Designs Devil in Disguise kitty again and had a ball creating the three dimensional jigsaw puzzle background with StencilGirl's 6 x 6 Jigsaw Puzzle stencil with glue and Perfect Pearls :0)  The sentiment I designed myself and will be part of my new digi stamp line I'm going to launch this year once I'm recovered from the few surgeries I have to have done!  Yep, this is the first I'm mentioning that I've got a digi line in the works and I'm super excited ;0)

I also had the pleasure of using some awesome new tools to create the perfect mats for these projects!  Come back next Monday for our Perfect Paper Crafting Blog Hop for the scoop on the new Perfect Layers Minis!  In the meanwhile click the pic for tutorials and use my special code to get 5% off your entire order!

Thanks for visiting with me today!  I hope you've been inspired by what I did with stamps and stencils but I'm not done coz I've also got another treat for you on my DominoART blog later in the hop too :0)  Have a fabulous day and now off you hop to Mary!


Happy Stamping!

  28. Hi, I love this work but I am confused as I don't know very much about stamps. Such is what is the difference between "cling, mounted, unmounted etc." Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's pretty simple Tommy: cling is a mounting cushion that lets you stick the rubber stamp to an acrylic block and then remove it when you're done stamping.
      Mounted are stamps mounted permanently to wooden blocks and unmounted is just the actual rubber stamp themselves without any cushion backing attached.
