31 Days of Halloween Day 22 - The Raven and the Moon

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hi from Laurie!  The month is going by so fast - we are already onto Day 22 of the 31 Days of Halloween here at the Lost Coast Portal.  Hope you have been busy making some Halloween goodies along with us.


For today, I have another card featuring the Forward Crow stamp from Carmen's Veranda.  My background is a piece of Halloween paper.  I die cut a fence out of black paper and attached that to the bottom portion of my Halloween paper.  I then glued a die cut moon face to the upper left corner.  I stamped my Raven (well he's really a crow but for this month, he's a raven!) with black ink on white card stock and cut him out.  I colored his beak and legs with orange marker and cut a little snip into his beak so he could hold the Trick or Treat sentiment.  I attached him to the top of my fence with some foam tape.  I then layered this with white then black card stock and he's a done deal!

The complete list of participants in the hop is shown on the sidebar.

Day 21 of 31 days of Halloween

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Cathy here on day 21 of the 31 days of Halloween
I made a card for today and who better for a Halloween Card then Alfred Hitchcock
 So I started off stamping Alfred Hitchcock on a white cardstock panel . Next I stamped him again on a scrap of copy paper and made a mask. Cut out and covered. Next I took the flying birds background and stamped only on one side of the card panel.  Edged the panel with red distressed ink. Last I took the drips  stamp and stamped it in the same red I used to ink the edge and stamped the top of the red card with it. That is my card for today. I hoped you will join in our Halloween and Animal challenge and event we have going on.

31 Days of Halloween Day 20 - The Bare Bones Of It

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hello, Gail here today and I hope you are having a bootastic time hopping along and seeing all the spooktacular offerings from the Wicked Bloggers.   It's Day 20 of the 31 Days of Halloween and I think we might have stumbled into the back lot of the Bates' Motel.
 I am not sure if Bird Bones is holding up that sign or weighing it down.  How heavy is a skeleton bird??   I do know that Happy Skeleton lost his head and ran off leaving his smile behind.  Oooh, look at the time.  Take my advice, don't ask these two clowns anything, but do take a minute to leave a little love so we know you dropped by.

 The full list of 31 Days of Halloween participants can be found in the sidebar.

Day 19 of the 31 Days of Halloween - The Farmer and His Wife Party!

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hi again from Laurie!  It's already day 19 of the 31 day Halloween Blog Hop, so I hope you have been busy making some fun Halloween stamped goodies!

For this one, I decided to use a non-Halloween stamp and make it Halloween-y! 


I used the American Gothic Party stamp, which is one of my favorite Lost Coast Design stamps.  I stamped my image with black ink onto white card stock.  I added some color to their faces and colored the farmer's vest orange, in the spirit of the season.  I then cut out some of the background behind the figures so I could use my own background.  I mounted my stamped image onto a blue/gray background I created with some Distress Oxide Inks.  I tucked a shining full moon into the left corner and added a couple of bats flying around.  Last I gave Mr. and Mrs. both witch's hats and parked a pumpkin in the lower left corner.  I colored the frame with brown marker and used gold marker to outline the inside edge - trying to give it the look of a vintage picture frame.  Then mounted this to white then black card stock.  A fab Halloween card!!

He's a No Hoper - 31 Days of Halloween Day 17

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Good Morning and happy Tuesday, it's Sue here with Day 17 of our 31 Days of Halloween blog hop.  Today it's the turn of my hopeless raven.



This is quite a large wooden tag that's been painted with DecoArt fluid acrylics. The beautiful Goth Raven has been stamped on a Gelli print.
I hope you're enjoying our 31 days of spookiness, and that you're also playing along.
Have a great day, and see you soon! xx
