NCC June Release!

Welcome to the North Coast Creations June release!

Julie Warner –

For this first card, I white embossed the image on a dotted green designer paper, then sponged a little extra green ink around the white embossing to make it stand out a bit more. The sentiment was also white embossed and sponged w/ the die still in place. It’s attached to a layer I first die cut w/ a Spellbinders labels 1, then I die cut it w/ a smaller decorative labels 1 and put it back in the labels 1 frame. I added an embossed white strip and a strip of a coordinating dp on top and bottom. This came about because I accidentally cut the the dotted green dp a little too short so I had to lengthen the panel in order for it to look balanced. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Julie Warner –
On my second card, I stamped the silhouette image using an orange to red rainbow pad. On the left side of the panel I embossed it w/ a honeycomb border folder then attached it to a larger panel I had stamped the ODBD honeycomb background using the same rainbow ink. The sentiment was stamped w/ the red chalk ink and die cut using an ODBD Elegant Ovals die. Everything was attached to a 5.50 x 4.25 card and I added a stamped and fussy cut cloud and some crystals on the bottom of the sentiment.

    Julie~ Beautiful! Love the white embossing. I haven’t heat embossed in years. The white on green is so pretty. Love how you fixed your boo boo. The fading colors on your 2nd card is such a great idea with these silhouette stamps. TFS.

    I have never tried white embossed silhouette, but it works well.
    I love the ‘ombre color’ effect though maybe, not intentional, it looks like it goes from orange to really deep orange on the card, love these colors combined together,

  17. Beautiful cards.
