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.

If you arrived here from Donna Baes blog, you’re in the right place. Have you been totally amazed by the projects so far? There’s still more to come so please get comfy! I’ve been in love with my Misti for a while now..I rarely ever stamp without it & I know I’ve barely scratched the surface of all I can do with it. And when I received these fab images from Unity, I couldn’t wait to work with them! The styles of these images are so diverse…just how I like things.

My first card started with a Brusho background I made ages ago. It’s sort of how I imagine deep space would look & thought it would look good behind this happy little girl, who’s in her own little world, blissfully swinging from a star. Remember that feeling, as if you’re flying? I put her in my Misti, stamped, colored her w/ Copics then overstamped her. Please check out the last card for the comparison on how big a difference this makes. Below is the inside, using leftovers from the front & next to it are the Copics I used.




Maybe this lovely lady is the little girl, all grown up, and so stylishly attired.  I love all the little hearts floating around her & the bouquet of tulips she’s holding. 

On Monday, I saw a technique challenge on Splitcoaststampers (TLC639) called “Smack Down” (click the link to check it out). So I took the solid heart image from the set and made the background using Distress inks in pinks & oranges. She was done separately, colored & fussy cut & popped up to give her a little separation from the background. I used the Misti to line up where I wanted to put her & stamped the hearts onto the background before attaching her. Below is the inside & Copics I used.



 
This last card, features this whimsical mushroom & adorable little snail. I love coloring mushrooms in fantastical colors but sometimes it can be hard to blend such different colors. So a lot of times I’ll color them first w/ Copics then blend over this w/ Prismacolor pencils, as I did here. It just gives the blends a softer look.

I’ve shown this on different posts a time or two, but it always amazes me what a difference stamping after coloring makes. See for yourself…the after overstamping pic on the right is so much clearer & darker than the before. And if you use Prismacolor pencils to color, this difference can be HUGE! Sometimes I’ll stamp over using Versafine, but this was just with the same Memento ink I used originally. That way if I want to color more, I can. (Click any pic to make larger.)

Here’s what I did w/ the greeting. After stamping it in black, I shifted the paper up and left just a tad, cleaned off the stamp & stamped it again w/ pistachio ink, taping off the bottom half so only the top part would stamp. (I stamped the greeting on the plastic sheet that comes w/ a stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure it was lined up correctly, so that’s why the one on the left appears a little blurry.) This is a great way to add a little color to a greeting.

Here’s the inside & the Copics I used.

Now I’ll send you on your way to Mandi Mance‘s blog.  Here’s the entire blog list, in case you get lost:

It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper (FS525) challenge on Splitcoast. I chose Karen, aka redbugdriver, so a big Congrats to Karen! After much browsing, I picked this & this to case…combining elements of both for my card. I kept the cute little girl & layout from the first & the big heart & color from the second. But I used different images & different die cuts. 


 This cute little ballerina kind of reminds me of when my mom put me in ballet class. Except my tutu for the recital was green & orange…and the glittery fabric was itchy as all get out. My regular practice tights & leotard were pink like this little cutie; but we didn’t wear tutus for practice, thank goodness. Apparently I was a bit hyper. Mom also made me take tap, jazz &  acrobatics. Pretty much a full boat of dance classes.

My little pink ballerina was colored & fussy cut. On the front of the white panel, I die cut a big fancy heart then stamped the greeting off to the left & the feet of the ballerina on the right then attached my cutie on top. 

Here’s a look at the inside. I put together 2 greetings for this. Below it are the Copics I used.
