I made this for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club April Christmas Challenge! I’ve been having so much fun being a part of the challenge this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how.
I really love these Birdbrain images & I really miss From the Heart Stamps. And I’m so thankful I bought some of these digi stamps while they were still available. After I put the digital image in a word doc, I typed the greeting & printed it out on Neenah. The little holly sprig & Christmas lights were stamped using some old clear stamps from Studio G. Then I colored everything & added a little glitter to the glass rims. The background was stamped using a retired ODBD image. Distress oxide cracked pistachio was stamped onto pine green c/s so the pattern of the image is actually the lighter color.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Technique Challenge (TLC680) on Splitcoast is a dark to light gradient background. Well..I have a dark to light to dark bg. 

The checkerboard bg was stamped w/ white & clear embossed then I sponged the Distress inks from corner to corner. It was die cut & a very narrow black layer inserted between the 2 cut layers before putting them back together.

I split the greeting up to add the die cut Shine in the center. This die cut word was heat embossed w/ red glitter powder to make it sparkle & shine. I popped up the greeting panel to give it some dimension. Here’s the inside.

Supplies: 

Stamps: DRS Designs –Sun Shine On You, Checkerboard Bg  (inside:  Sunny Day Birthday Greeting)
Paper: Staples 110# white, black
Ink:  Memento tuxedo black, Colorbox frost white pigment, Distress inks worn lipstick, squeezed lemonade, fired brick, twisted citron, cracked pistachio, peacock feathers, salty ocean
Accessories: Lil’ Inker stitched rectangles, Momento shine die, clear embossing powder, red glitter embossing powder, sequins

This next card is for the Color Challenge (CC677) is peach, coral & a lt. emerald. 


I came as close as I could to these colors (on the screen, that peach color looks really golden-yellow to me). 

The flowers were stamped a bunch of times, colored & fussy cut. I like the look of these long ovals so after stamping the greeting & die cutting them, I arranged all the flowers to the side.

Here’s the inside & the Copic colors I used.

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!
