Welcome to the North Coast Creations August Release! We have some super cute new images & dies & a sweet collection of paper, as well. 

My cupcakes card was made by stamping then die cutting a bunch of cupcakes (on copy paper) to use as masks. I also die cut a few more, leaving some space around them, to use as reverse masks. The reverse mask was placed in the lower center of a piece of white card stock then the pink & teal colors were sponged thru the mask, the mask was removed & the cupcake was stamped on top w/ black ink. One of the masks was placed over it & the process was repeated (w/ different ink colors) for the surrounding cupcakes. Just a couple of Copics were used to create the shadows underneath.  If you look below (click any image to enlarge), you’ll see the masks & reverse masks I made & also the inside of the card where I repeated this cupcake masking/sponging/stamping. I finished the card w/ a layer of lt teal from the Sweet Shoppe paper & a scrap of leftover dp & a cute little Bow out of the same teal.




This Donuts card uses images & dies & papers from the same Sprinkled with Love set as the cupcakes card. The images were all stamped, colored & die cut as shown. I used one of the Leafy Edged Borders to cut away the bottoms of the white & green layers after die cutting them w/ Pierced Rectangles dies.

Below is the inside & Copics I used to color everything.


For this blue Camper card, I stamped, colored then die cut the RV w/ a Double Stitched Rectangle die. Then I die cut the outer stitched rectangle w/ Rectangle die & colored this frame to match the RV. On the background, I stamped the RV repeatedly & left them uncolored. 

Below is the inside & the Copics I used.


I used the same Camper set for this card. The papers are from the Old Glory collection & I used Pierced Rectangles & Pierced Circles to die cut everything. I fussy cut the RV to add it on top. The blue edged hills were hand cut & sponged along the top edges. The greeting was added to the top portion of the Surprise Box insert die. 

Below is the inside & next to it are the Copics I used.


This card uses the S’More Love set/dies & the Sweet Shoppe paper along w/ a piece of orange from the Birthday Brights collection. The campfire, hearts & marshmallows were all colored & die cut & because I thought it matched the greeting, I drew simple little faces on the marshmallows. I added a die cut Pegboard out of kraft paper on top of a piece I colored in bands using the same Copics I used for the flames.

Below are the card inside & Copics I used.


On my last card, I again used the S’More Love set/dies but after die cutting, I arranged the elements on a black background. The greeting was stamped once w/ white Brilliance ink then overstamped (it was in my Misti) w/ Distress oxide ink (fossilized amber). The background was made using the oxide inks & a spray bottle of water. 

Below is the inside.

A big congrats to Sharon, the newest Featured Stamper (FS549) on Splitcoast! She has such a big beautiful gallery, it was hard to chose just one. After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the beach/seashell theme & most of the layout, but I used different images, different colors & moved the shells from the center to around the center.
After stamping & coloring the flamingo scene, I die cut the white frame, added the greeting & some curvy pierced lines on the lower left. The shells were all fussy cut & added around the circle opening.

These are the Copic I used to color everything.

Thanks  so much for stopping by!

To make my summer lighthouse card, I used a small piece of a Brushos watercolor background I had in my stash. After die cutting the white rectangle, I also die cut a large oval & placed the watercolor bg behind it. The Lighthouse was die cut once out of white & once out of royal blue & pieced together. The little windows were colored w/ a couple of yellow Copics. The Summer & lower part of the hello tag were also die cut twice each & stacked. I used the clouds from the Hot Air Balloon Reverse die & also a larger cloud on top of the Hello. I had the die cut frame leftover from something else, so I sponged on similar colors & added it behind the white layer.

Here’s a look at the inside. I left it blank for now, until I decide who it’s going to.
