It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC661) & I chose Brit+Co. I love their colorful displays & I chose the picture below for my inspiration.



To make my card, I stamped the different cactus plants, colored them & the large one had a matching die but the 2 smaller were fussy cut. I used an stitch arch die to cut the window opening & to make the frame around the opening. Then I put a piece of watercolor background behind it. The greeting was stamped on a stitched tag die cut & I used my die resizing technique to shorten the tag.

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

My card today is on the very CAS side of things. Don’t let that fool you..I’m sure it takes longer for me to do CAS than to do a “normal” card. For the most part, I have trouble w/ CAS. The images are really cute but I need more practice w/ these type of images. The hearts were stamped on the linen bg & I thought it needed more so I outlined them w/ a glue pen & sprinkled on some glitter. For the Love word, I sponged Distress inks from left to right then stamped & glittered it. I found a piece of patterned paper just the right size & colors so I used it to back the white & to die cut the swirly.

Here’s a look at the inside.

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!
