Space Bday cu 00233
Welcome to the North Coast Creations January Release! We have some fun, Fun, FUN new images & dies for you this month & you’ll want them all! Space & aliens are so hot right now & these are just too cute for words, so sit & take a look. Space Bday 00232
On my space card, I wanted a shimmery, deep space look to highlight the white of the moon, spaceship & astronaut. I used to live in Houston, TX which happens to be Space City & if you’re ever there, be sure to check out the NASA Space Center…it’s amazing! Anyway, for my background, I started w/ black & since I wanted it shimmery, I dug out some long neglected Opalite inks & a stippling brush & added the Milky Way looking areas. I used the Sparkling Stars dies to cut a reverse mask then sponged the stars onto the area w/ the platinum ink. Space Bday xcu 00239
Then I die cut the black panel w/ the Leafy Edged Borders & added the die cut moon, ship & astronaut images w/ the matching dies. The greeting was stamped onto a large Star & I also added some shimmery black stars in the blue band. The blue c/s has a kind of light, felty texture look to it.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used. Space Bday inside 00241

Monster Hug cu 00221
On my second card, I stamped these adorable Little Monsters, colored & die cut w/ the matching dies.  I came across this acrylic painted background in my stash (done who knows how long ago) & the colors went perfectly w/ the images. For the coral layer, I used the  Circles  & Double Stitched Circles to die cut it, then used a mask I made w/ these same dies to sponge some white & marigold inks onto it. When I placed it over the bg & put the monsters inside, there was a little too much going on so I found a shades of mint paint chip, die cut it w/ the Double Stitched Rectangles & placed it behind the coral layer. Much better! The greeting was added on a white circle w/ one of the leftover coral stitched circles around it. Monster Hug 00223
Below, is a look at the inside & under it are the Copics I used. For the monster, I used the reverse mask of the monster as a stencil, added the color then stamped the image on top. More sponged circles were added down the left side.

You have through SundayJan 22  to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win.

To make my Valentine card, I had a tag and little strip of water color background & thought the colors would be perfect for Valentine’s Day. I also had a little piece of white w/ the negative (left over part) of a die cut & trimmed the bottom to fit the tag; just to dress it up a bit. The Mini Scallop & Scroll dies were cut out of a paint chip I found w/ colors that went w/ my watercolor tag. One of the colors was “Coral Kiss” & I thought that went as well, so I left it. The little hearts were cut out using the Love die & the top 3/4 of the white panel was embossed w/ a woodgrain folder to add a little texture.

Here’s a look at the inside. 

Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

Bday Corsage cu 00265
A big congrats to Twila, the newest Featured Stamper (FS519) on Splitcoast! I didn’t have to go far to find THIS beauty to case. I kept the layout & flowers, but I used different images, different colors & made mine a birthday card. Bday Corsage IMG0578
All the flowers & leaves were placed into my Misti, stamped w/ the Paris Dusk ink, lightly colored w/ Copics, overstamped w/ the denim ink then die cut. I like the color of the denim ink better than the Memento, but from experience, the Adirondack inks don’t play well w/ the Copics, so I save it to stamp on top after the coloring. The greeting was stamped using the Versafine to ensure it would be dark & the letters totally filled in. The paper strips were all leftovers I trimmed to fit inside the white panel

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
