Welcome to the North Coast Creations Feb Release! We have some super cute, really fun images for you this month! You can see all the new images & cards made w/ them over on the NCC/ODBD Blog.

My first card was made using the Stay Cool set. I just love the little sunglasses on the popsicle. I added the POP on the star above the greeting because that’s what we’ve always called my dad & I’m saving this one for Father’s Day. My pop is the coolest & that’s a fact! The center pop was stamped in black, colored & fussy cut.  The other 2 were stamped in gray & colored. I added stickles to the center pop & distress stickles to the other 2. I really wanted the Coolest Pop to stand out! The Snowflake paper really adds to the frostiness. 
Here’s the inside & Copic colors.

My next card uses the Olive You set.


Aren’t these little olives cute? They make a really sweet Valentine. I was going for a vintage Valentine look w/ the tag & big heart. Remember those you used to give out in grade school? The olives were stamped onto a sparkle fleck lime green c/s then colored first w/ Copics then overlaid w/ Prismacolor pencils. The narrow borders were colored to match & I added the little scallop edging. 

The 3rd new set is Thanks a Latte. 

For this cutie, I stamped him on a die cut tag then I used the Umbrella dies to make a topper for the tag. After I cut the two patterned papers w/ the bottom of the umbrella, I attached them to the tag & cut the top of the tag again so it would fit the tag shape. The greeting fit perfectly inside the Mini Stitched Heart die, though I did fussy cut the striped layer.

The 4th set is Stuck on You.

Isn’t this Peanut pair cute? I wanted a big heart cutout behind them so I put the circle w/ them off to the side & cut the left edge even w/ the top layer. This is another set that makes a wonderful, vintage feeling Valentine card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I made this for 2 Splitcoast Challenges today…the Technique (TLC675) acetate inking, and the Clean & Simple (CAS466) to have/use something clear. 

For the TLC, I used DOX (Distress oxide ink) on a piece of acetate to make the piece I used behind the window.  For the CAS (something clear) I used a portion of a window die (clear window) & put my Santa puppy on the ledge looking out. The white front was stamped w/ the snowflakes & embossed w/ the bricked folder & I added the greeting (half die cut, half stamped) & a few punched snowflakes. 

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

Mary will announce a winner on Jan 22 on her Blog. On the first & third Wednesdays of every month, we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop! The Special is the Floral Alphabet stamps – 50% off!

Aren’t these birds adorable? I love the stitch lines & patterns on them. While I was unpacking some crafty stuff (after our recent move), I came across some backgrounds I made ages ago. I used a portion of the blue/green wax paper resist Cuttlebug bg on this card. To me, it looked similar to the Floral Cuts Bg die, so I thought they’d work well together. I colored the little birds using colors from the bg piece, then fussy cut them. The Hello die was cut once out of white & once out of teal & stacked, a little offset.

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