and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

North Coast Creations May Release

Welcome friends!  It's time for the May release from North Coast Creations and the two new sets being released are bound to help you keep your cool!  This month we will be choosing 2 winners who will receive a $10 gift certificate to the NCC Store just for commenting on our Coasters Design Team cards!  You have until May 17, 2013 at 9:00PM EDT to make a comment on each of our designers' blog posts. Our 2 random winners will be announced on the North Coast Creations Blog on May 18, 2013.


I have two COOL samples to share with you today...
one from each of the new sets!

Creative Nugget:  This first sample is from the new stamp set, What's the Scoop?  This card took on a kind of retro look as the layout was meant to mimic an old fashioned soda shop window, complete with awning.  Different Bo Bunny papers were stitched to a Cool Caribbean panel which was matted in True Black and mounted on a Solar Crest card front.  The sentiment from the set was stamped on DP and mounted to a Spellbinders Tag Die.  The ice cream cone was fussy cut and mounted to a tag from the Recipe & Tags Die Set available from our ODBD sister company.  Some Gingham ribbon and a button finish the card.

Here's a peek at the complete set:


My second card uses the new set, You're the Bomb!


Creative Nugget:  The Kaisercraft papers were stitched to Chocolate Chip card stock and mounted to a Vintage Cream card base.  The chocolate dipped popsicle was colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut so it could be popped on the Elegant Oval which was cut with the matching Elegant Oval Dies, both available from our sister company, Our Daily Bread Designs.  Some Ice Stickles was rubbed on the lower part of the popsicle with my finger, and Glossy Accents was applied to the chocolate dipped top of the popsicle!  Yum!  The sentiment was stamped on one of the smaller Elegant Oval Dies and sponged with Wild Honey Distress Ink.  A bit of lace, a couple of Dew Drops, and a seam binding bow finish the card.

Here's the complete You're the Bomb! set:


Now aren't you hungry for a nice COOL treat?  Be sure to stop by the other Coasters for more delectable delights. Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win a PRIZE
