Welcome to the North Coast Creations July release!
Julie Warner –
On this card, I stamped the old barn w/ black ink and colored it with Copics. The red card stock I had wasn’t as dark a red as I wanted, so I rubbed red ink all over it before stamping it with ODBD’s Wood Background with cocoa ink. I die cut a frame with this using the Spellbinder’s Labels 21 then added some piercing and faux stitching w/ a white gel pen. The greeting was die cut using a Lacey Pennants die. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
These are the Copics I used:

On my second card, I again stamped and colored the image using Copics. The gazebo as well as the heather layer were die cut w/ square dies. The lower panel of heather was embossed and added below w/ a gradient ribbon between the two. The greeting, again from Find Beauty, was die cut w/ an oval. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50. (Sorry, I forgot to take a pic of the Copics.)

A big CONGRATS to Jeanne, the Featured Stamper today on Splitcoast (FS336)! What a fabulous gallery she has! I chose her May card to case. I kept the layout and use of fancy die cuts, but I used different images, slightly different colors and used the die cut clover images instead of flowers.

The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. I used a background I made from a Mono Print #2 technique tutorial ( It’s also on the ODBD Blog as  No Gel Plate, No Problem!). It’s a fun alternative to gel plates called Mono Printing. For the clover, I stamped it several times, colored w/ Copics and die cut them using the matching clover die. I arranged them around my die cut sentiment, added a couple of fancy die cuts behind it and attached to my 5.50 4.25 card. I added a couple of fussy cut little bees from the clover set.

These are the Copics I used to color the clover.

Today’s Color Challenge (CC434) on Splitcoast, is a Christmas in July set of colors…w/ the dessert option of making it a Christmas card. Looks like dessert for me!

The images are from DRS Designs. After stamping my Cowboy Snowman, I used the Color Challenge/Christmas colors to color everything. I made two frames, a brownish/kraft and a dk red. The brownish one was embossed w/ a distressed stripe folder then I  tore openings in both and attached the red one on top. The trees were die cut and added on top. I used a star shape tearing template for the sentiment and white acrylic paint to splatter the “snow”. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
