Today we are taking a look back at North Coast Creations
' December Release. I created two cards using both of the new sets, I Dig You
and Dump Truck Birthday
. For more inspiration using the December Release be sure to visit the NCC Blog
. So let's jump right in and check out a couple of "boy friendly" cards!
I chose to use a simple buffalo check DP from my stash along with black card stock matting. I stamped the image on Copic compatible paper and colored my tractor red. I fussy cut the entire image including the back tire. ( I popped it out with dimensional foam for interest.) I cut a small white CS panel and used a scallop punch piece of paper and inked a summer sky ink around the edges. It resembles clouds! I used a sponge and green inks to create the grass bottom. A few torn sticky notes strategically placed, helped give it a realistic look. After placing the tractor and "wheel" I stamped the sentiment in black. :-)
And here's the set I used to create this super fun card!
So what if tractors don't inspire your little guy? What about dump trucks? This project has a birthday vibe as well.
This card measures 5.25 x 5.25 inches and features a triple mat. I chose green, white and a steel gray to mimic the colors in my truck. For the focal panel, I pulled out a nice green and white polka dot DP for interest. I fussy cut the truck and sponged my main panel again using the scallop with sponged ink technique. I also used sticky notes for the sand/dirt but decided to create a more uniform look. I stamped the sign on white paper and used a yellow Copic to color it. I fussy cut it and added the sentiment panel (with dimensional foam) in a matching ink. I can't decide which one I like best! :-)
So here's the set you see here...
As always, I enjoy sharing a few moments of your day! I hope you were "ink"spired! :-) Don't forget to visit my fellow Design Team members (AKA the Coasters) for more inspiration! Thanks again!
