It's Time For a New Release at North Coast Creations

Welcome to another fun release at North Coast Creations!  I promise this month will be a real hoot!  ;-)  If you love using owls and/or amazing dies on your projects, you are at the right place!  This month I have a couple of cute projects featuring some of the new items at NCC.  And at the end of today's post, watch for details on how you can hop along and possibly win!  I know you would love to add a few of these fun tools to your stamping collection!
 
First, I will start with a fun card using NCC's Who Loves You stamp set, coordinating Owl Family Die along with the new Flourished Vine Dies.
 

I started with a deep brown card stock base (5.5 x 4.25 inches) with a Kraft mat.  I cut a slightly smaller DP layer using our sister company, Our Daily Bread Designs' Vintage Ephemera Paper Collection.  ODBD  also provided a couple of new dies for the sentiment panel - Ovals Dies and Stitched Ovals Die.  I stamped the sentiment on my sentiment panel so I could place the die cut owls suspended from my "faux" swing.  A few "vines" peek out from the sentiment panel.  So here are the new products you see in the project shown above... 



 
I took these same items plus another new NCC die and created this card...
 

This time, I started with a blue card stock base and added a DP from ODBD's Blooming Garden Paper Collection.  I created the white lattice layer and focal die using ODBD's Boho Background Die
and Vintage Flourish Pattern Die.  I stamped the branch and owl family, colored each and cut them out using the new Owl Family Die.  I used the Flourished Vine Dies with Kraft card stock for the added foliage and a bit of left over blue card stock to create my sentiment, Thinking of You die.  Here is a photo of this new die...
 
 
So fun!  So now you too can have the opportunity to take these items home.  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.
