North Coast Creations October Release!

Julie Warner –


Welcome to the North Coast Creations October New Releases!  


Julie Warner –

On my first card, I stamped the wonderful beach scene and colored w/ Copics, then used the fluorescent gel pens for the little Christmas lights and Copic white opaque paint for the surf. I die cut the white frame using the ODBD Recipe Card die but shortened it a bit before cutting the rectangle in the center. The turquoise/lime zigzag frame was from a leftover background I made w/ pigment inks and I used a zigzag border punch to create the colored border. A chevron embossing folder was used on the right side. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

For my second card, I stamped the wonderful Joy image, again coloring it with Copics. I used one of the grand circle dies to cut it out, but cut it off below the image. I used the next size up to cut the red layer and the red piece at the bottom was a left over piece from die cutting the bracket border. The two kraft strips were cut using the bracket border dies and embossed w/ an embossing border folder. I added a few strips of red onto the plaid dp down the center.

The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used to color it.

  3. Julie, I LOVE how you colored the Christmas lights to really make that palm tree pop highlighting the fine details. Great sketch too. Your Joy card is just as fabulous with the great embossing and how you went out of the box with using a circle and cutting it. Love it all.
