North Coast Creations May New Release and Blog Hop

Welcome to North Coast Creations May Release! This month, North Coast Creations is releasing two stamp sets that are great for creating masculine cards!  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.

My first card uses the Sail Away stamp set along with dies and additional stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs.


The sailboat from Sail Away is stamped in Black ink on White card stock and colored using STAEDTLER Watercolor Pencils, blending with Gamsol.  I sponged Blue clouds in the background and die cut the panel using the ODBD Circle Ornaments die, layering on a Black panel that was die cut using the ODBD Matting Circles dies.To created the Polaroid Frame panel, I used one of the dies from the ODBD Lacey Layered Squares to die cut the opening, stamping the panel in Caramel using the Fishing Net Background.  I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of the stamped card stock and embellished the panel with twine.  

Details:

Card Stock - Kraft, Black, White, Blue
Other - Ink Blending Tool, Dimensionals, Bo Bunny Pattern Paper, Twine, Our Daily Bread Designs Custom Dies: Matting Circles, Circle Ornaments, Layered Lacey Squares, Big Shot

My next card uses images from the Deer Silhouette Greetings stamp set along with dies from Our Daily Bread Designs.


To create the stamped scene, I stamped all images in colored ink on Vanilla card stock and clear embossed.  I added the clouds by sponging Blue ink over cloud die cut panel.  The stamped scene is mounted on an Espresso panel that was die cut using the Layered Lacey Squares Die.  I inked a portion of the sentiment, stamping it on Vanilla card stock and die cut the panel using a tag from the ODBD Mini Tags die set.
