A Look Back at North Coast Creations' February Release

Today we are taking a look back at North Coast Creations' February Release.  Here are a couple of cards I created using Pansies  and Hippity Hoppity.
I just love those cheery faced Pansies!  
There is something about them that makes me smile.  I love them so much in fact that I couldn't stop coloring them.  As a result you see them in both of my projects!  ;-)

Let's start with a clean and simple 
project featuring Pansies...


 I started with a violet card stock base (5.5 x 4.25 inches).  I added a white mat and another violet mat.  I finished with a designer paper print from NCC's sister company, Our Daily Bread Designs.  This print may be found in their Christian Faith Paper Collection.  I stamped the sentiment with a Grape Jelly hued ink (YUM) and hand cut the banner and violet mat.  I stamped the image on Copic compatible paper and colored the image with Copics before fussy cutting.  I added both the banner and pansy image with dimensional foam.  

And here is my second project.
I have to say, I LOVE THIS SENTIMENT and the scene!


Isn't he DARLING????  I started with a white CS card base (5.5 x 4.25 inches) and added a violet mat.  (Yes, I was trying to use up all of that gorgeous purple CS...)  I added another white mat for my scene.  But before placing the final layer, I used a scalloped paper punch, Summer Sky ink and a sponge dauber to create a "cloudy" sky!  The pansies are actually a set of two separate images, colored and fussy cut.  I added them to the base with dimensional foam.  I tucked two rows of die cut grass (another item from Our Daily Bread Designs...  Grass Die...)  One layer of grass is stuck directly to the background.  The other is layered on with dimensional foam.  I stamped the adorable bunny from Hippity Hoppity on Neenah Solar Crest and lightly colored his paw pads, ears and fur.  I fussy cut him as well and added dimensional foam so he appears to be resting in the posies!  I added a fun stamped/die cut egg (Our Daily Bread Designs' Blessed Easter stamp set and coordinating Eggs Die).  I stamped the sentiment (Hippity Hoppity) directly on the background with black ink.

And for Copic fans...  here are the colors I used for the pansies...
I know I LOVE IT when folks share their marker choices...



So here are the new items from North Coast Creations you see...

Oh, Lori, your color choices have me drooling!!! I love the banner design and gorgeous pansies on the 1st and how clever to combine the bunny with your beautiful scene in the 2nd! Both of these are a home run!!! HUGS!

Oh Lori, what fabulous samples!!! I love the design of the first, gorgeous,
and how cute to have the bunny sitting on the pansies! Beautiful coloring of those flowers!
These are both lovely, Lori! The deep purple pansies are so pretty & I love how the bunny is "planted" in the pansy patch on the second one.
Lori, how adorable! I love how you combined the bunny with the pansies! Never would have thought to do that and it works so well!!!
