Well the MIX challenge on Splitcoast sounded really interesting so I thought I’d give it a go. I totally messed up the first little Merry I did because I was impatient w/ the stylus part. Apparently patience is not my strong suit. On the second try, I bypassed the stylus part entirely. After die cutting 3 sets of the MERRY letters and gluing them together then onto a strip of c/s I sprayed it w/ adhesive and put my foil over it.

Here’s the fun part…I put it on my embossing mat and ran it thru the Sizzix. That’s a real time saver! And it worked better than me w/ the stylus. Instead of paint, I used some red Copics to color around the letters. Then I sprayed another piece of c/s, attached another piece of foil and die cut it w/ the viney background. Feels funny to not have used any stamps or inks ūüôā

Welcome to the North Coast Creations November Release! And we some images just perfect for the pet lovers’ Christmas cards.¬†¬† Julie Warner ‚Äď
On my first card, I used the sweet Santa Paws set.  I stamped the puppy and ornament separately and die cut them using the ODBD Circle Ornament dies. I used a larger Spellbinder circle for the gold backings and ornament toppers. A single ODBD pinecone image was stamped behind the ornaments. A curved border die was used on the 2 pieces of Christmas Collection 2013 paper for the lower section. The card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

On my second card, I used the very cute Santa Claws set. After stamping and coloring with Copics, I used a rectangle die and my Nestie out of the box technique to die cut it. An oval die was used for the greeting and I attached a little die cut bow from the ODBD Circle Ornament dies on top. The large white panel was embossed and attached to a gingham pattern from the Christmas Collection 2013. I also added a narrow strip of the same paper behind the cat along w/ a punched red zigzag.
