Archive for the ‘Masculine/Father’s Day’ Category



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!

Today’s Clean & Simple (CAS465) Challenge on Splitcoast is all about travel. While I made a retirement/travel card, I think this  Follow Your Dreams Sign Post would also be wonderful for graduation.

After I stamped & colored it onto a die cut panel, I stamped the little sign parts again & cut them out to pop up on top. The other layers were leftovers already in my stash & the colors went, so there you go! On the top kraft panel, I stamped the World Map a few times in rust colored ink then added little white strips to make it stand out from the larger kraft panel. On that one, I stamped the little 4 in 1 Arrows in the same ink. I die cut some little arrows & added them down the left side.

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

For today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC603), I chose This scrapbook page. I don’t really do scapbooking so mine is a card  😀 but I liked the silhouette images against the sky. 
For the background, I used the Wrinkle Free Distress technique by smooshing the brown Distress inks onto my craft sheet, misting pretty heavily, then pressing mostly the bottom half of my water color paper on top. (Repeat this until you get the coverage you want.) After wiping the sheet off, I repeated this for the top half of my paper using the blue inks. Since watching paper dry is not one of my strong suits, I dried it w/ my heat gun then put  into my Misti and stamped the hiker &  trees w/ the sepia Versfine. I had to stamp them each about 2 or 3 times to get a good impression on this watercolor paper. I used a white marker to edge the panel & the white Prismacolor pencil to highlights to some of the rocks. I had a large brown paint chip & I liked the names of the colors so I let them show at the bottom. The greeting was added on a circle & backed w/ a larger circle from the paint chip.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
