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.

Today’s Color Challenge (CC671) on Splitcoast is silver, red & white & dessert option is to make a Valentine. When I saw the color combo last night, I started thinking about big hearts & sequins & somewhere along the line it turned into “what if I fill the heart w/ sequins?” & that’s where I went with my card.
After I die cut the hearts, I started gluing down the sequins. I started w/ big red ones then added small red ones (& 1 silver) on top. Silver sequins were used on the small heart & I outlined both w/ a silver sharpie. The white linen bg was sponged w/ a couple of red Distress inks from the top down then to soften the blend, I sponged white Brilliance from the lower edge of the red upwards. That left a bit of a sheen that you see in the closeup. It was die cut twice & a metallic silver layer added in between. The little hearts below the greeting were filled w/ red stickles.

Here’s a look at the inside.

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.
