Marching Along With North Coast Creations' Latest Release

Welcome friends to North Coast Creations' March Release!  If you are a person who loves large amounts of caffeine...  this release is just for  you!  But not just any caffeine will do!  I'm referring to that fabulous concoction known as coffee!  You either love it or you hate it!  What is so cool about this release?  Even if you are not a coffee fan...  you can still have loads of fun stamping about it and sharing gifts or cards with your coffee drinking friends!  They will think you are so very thoughtful!
And what is even better than matching up the perfect project with your besties?  Just for commenting on the Design Team Blog Posts, you have a chance to win a $10 NCC Gift Certificate, good towards the purchase of NCC Stamps. You have until March 27, 2015 at 10:00 PM EDT to leave a comments on the participating designers blogs for a chance to win! Two random winners will be selected from the comments left on the designers blogs, the winners will be announced on the NCC Blog on March 28, 2015!  SO be sure to check back there to see if you have won!

So here is the first project featuring the new set,

I stamped the sentiment on white card stock twice.  I hand cut the top layer and added it to the original panel with dimensional foam.  It makes it look like a real banner!

And here's a better look at the sentiment panel along with the circles (created with Our Daily Bread Designs' Matting Circles Dies and the lovely faux lace from ODBD's Beautiful Borders Die set.

 I know that many of you love shabby/chic projects!  But sometimes I like to see projects that are a little more clean and simple.  And when I saw this stamp set, Warm My Heart, I knew the paper crimper would come out of retirement!

I stamped my sentiment on white card stock before using Our Daily Bread Designs' Pennant Die to create the banner.  I stamped the coffee container image and heart separately, coloring each and fussy cutting them.  I added the heart on top (with dimensional foam) and added it to the crimped Kraft layer.  I just love this one too!

So here are the new items from NCC you see today...
See why I had to pull out the paper crimper?

and some products from our sister company Our Daily Bread Designs...





So don't forget to stop by the blog hop and leave some love.  Because you could win a fabulous gift certificate!  If you get lost along the way visit the NCC Blog.

Your first card is so pretty and a great way to use the stamps for non-coffee drinkers too. Love the crimping on the second card. I used to use my crimper all the time. Maybe it's time to bring it back out, because it is just perfect with that coffee cup!

These stamps are so cute, and so are your cards!
So cute, Lori! Love your first w/ the pretty rolled rose and your second is so classic w/ the crimped band & colors.
