Lost Coast Designs ~ One Stamp Several Views

This month our design team at Altered Pages is really excited to be partnering with Lost Coast Designs a rubberstamp company.    I must say I love the quality of their stamps. 

Today I have decided to use the Lost Coast Designs Zentangle Feather #3 Stamp on several cards and tags.  Hopefully to inspire you to use one stamp with different techniques to get amazing results.

I have stamped directly on a Gel Press Print, on vintage text, plain manila tags, misted a manila tag, torn text, and fussy cut a feather.

This house is Foundations Décor Sweet Heart House.  I decided to give the first side a bird theme and call it "Home Tweet Home."
Foundations Décor Sweet Heart House comes with the three pieces pictured above. First, I painted the all sides of the Foundations Décor Sweet Heart House with Dixie Belle Paint Butter Creamy! Let it dry, then traced the house onto the Sunshine in my Soul 8x8  Paper Pad.  Apply a thin layer of glue to the house, then carefully attach the paper.  Let dry!

4th of July chalkboard buffet signs

Fine, yes, you already know we overdo Independence Day at our house, but at the risk of oversharing, here is yet another 4th of July party project.  These are practical AND fun, as they can serve as chalkboard buffet signs.  Plus, I had blue chalkboard paint in my stash, waiting to be used!
 1.  Two coats of blue chalkboard paint on Foundations Décor Banner Circles. 

 2.  Red cardstock circles, cut to fit, with a little distressing and inking to the edges.  A ring of white eyelet added to the NOT painted side of the wooden circle, along with a red painted wooden skewer. Tacky Glue is perfect for this.

 3.  Patriotic collage images, cut to (almost) fit inside the red cardstock circle, inked with some Mix'd Media Salazar Inx.  I attached the images with a glue stick.

 4.  Attach the red circle to the back of the mini chalkboard, making a lace/skewer sandwich.  I used foam mounting squares, using a double stack to compensate for the skewer and lace, at 1, 5, 3, 7, 9, and 11 o'cl…
