North Coast Creations September Release

Welcome to the North Coast Creations September New Releases!  The North Coast Creations crew will be choosing 2 winners who will receive a $10 gift certificate to the store for stamps just for commenting on the Design Team cards! You have until September 17, 2013 at 10:00PM EDT to make a comment on each of our designers blog posts.  Our 2 random winners will be announced here on the blog on September 18, 2013.
 
So let's dive in with a couple of project I have to share today using two of the new sets, Santa's Sleigh and Old Fashioned Santa.
 
First Santa's Sleigh...
 
 
I colored this darling image with Copics and added glitter glue to all of the "packages" for added bling.  A rich red bow and black jet beads accent the black and white matting I used. 
 
and then Old Fashioned Santa with more of a vintage feel...
 
I also colored this image with Copics and lightly dusted the edge with distress ink.  The sentiment was embossed with a steel gray embossing powder.  I added lace and seam binding along with buttons and decorative pins for interest.  I wanted it to feel like bits of sewing scraps and ephemera.
 
Both sets are just darling and a dream to color!  Plus they are packed with cute sentiments for all of your project needs.  Here they are...
 


 

Don't forget to visit the Coasters' blogs, as listed below, to comment on all of the DT's cards! Winners will be chosen at random from the comments on the design team blogs.
