North Coast Creations July Release

This month North Coast Creations is releasing 2 beautiful scenic stamp sets, a vintage Barn and a lovely Gazebo.  These stamps look wonderful on their own, or paired up with sentiments to create beautiful cards, and gift sets.  The Barn even makes a beautiful winter scene for a Christmas card!  Continue reading below to find out how you can win one of two North Coast Creations $10 Gift Certificates good towards the purchase of NCC Stamps, just for commenting on the Designers cards.

I love barn stamps!  For this card, I stamped the Barn in Coffee Archival on Vanilla card stock, then die cut the Vanilla panel using the Big Shot and Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles Die.

The image is colored with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor pencils.  I added the clouds by sponging Blue ink around a scallop edge and the grass by sponging on Green ink.  The sentiment is from North Coast Creations Find Beauty stamp set.  For the card base, I die cut the largest Radiant Rectangle, holding the cut just above the fold, then die cut additional Radiant Rectangles from Espresso card stock.  The frame is added to the base card with dimensionals, the stamped image is adhered in place with a tape runner.

Details:
Stamp - North Coast Creations Barn, Find Beauty
Ink - Ranger Coffee Archival, Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, Bashful Blue, Celery
Card Stock - Vanilla, Espresso
Other - Scallop Punch, Big Shot, Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles Die, Dimentionals, STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils, Sponge Dauber, SAMJ
