A big congrats to Bronwyn, the newest Featured Stamper (FS578) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery and after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the colors & layout but her little boy became the state of Texas and I changed the triangular spinner to a word art thingie (per the Technique Challenge TLC679) & instead of white stitch lines I used a barbed wire border.

I did the lines & coloring for the word art for the die cut Howdy per the Technique Challenge then colored the die cut Texas shape & did my best to match up the lower end of the point convergence & added a star at that point. The lt blue was dry embossed then I made a border using a barbed wire die. 

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


Thanks so much for stopping by!

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.
