And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

North Coast Creations August 2015 Release

Hello friends!  North Coast Creations has a fun release today and "Owl" just bet you will love these new stamps and dies!  You'll get a hoot out of all the wonderful projects made by the Design Team.  Every release needs a PRIZE, so here are the details before you get started on the hop…

…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 August 30, 2015 at 10:00PM EDT to leave a comment on the participating designers' blogs for a chance to win.  Two random winners will be selected from the comments on the designers' blogs.  The winners will be announced on the NCC Blog on August 31, 2015.  Be sure to check back there to see if you have won.

Creative Nugget:  The ODBD Heart & Soul Paper Collection was perfect for the background for my card.  The tree trunk was made by swiping brown, rust, and white ink pads down a panel of Kraft card stock then embossing with a wood grain embossing folder. The Ornate Hearts Die was used to cut the heart in the tree trunk. Images from the Who Loves You? stamp set were colored with Copic Markers and cut with matching Owl Family Dies.  Glossy Accents was added to the owls' eyes.  The new NCC Vine Die was used to cut some foliage for the tree.  The sentiments were cut with the Pennant Die and the Mini Tags Die to finish the card.


Creative Nugget:  This card was so much fun!  Loved coloring this little owl family in bright colors.  The background was made by dabbing Mixed Media paper onto watered down distress inks on a craft mat.  The clouds, cut with the ODBD Clouds & Raindrop Dies, were cut from scraps of the same paper.  An extra branch was stamped in green so the leaves could be fussy cut and added to the branches.  The Who Loves You? owls were cut with the matching Owl Family Dies.  These owls are so cute!


Here are the new North Coast Creations products used on these cards:
