The New NCC Stamps and Dies are Adorable!

Good morning!

Aren't these new sets and dies from North Coast Creations just adorable!!!  
I had a blast (pun intended!) playing with both sets!  

My first card features Rocket Man and Space Man dies.  I created the space background with masking fluid and then air-brushing a copic marker.  After rubbing off the masking fluid, I cut out the background and the bottom layer with ODBD Pierced Rectangles.  The 'moon' and 'planets' are cut with ODBD Pierced Circles.  I love the sentiment so much!  

Here is my second card:

This made me giggle!  I have always wanted to add googly eyes to a project!  
The Little Monsters and Monster dies are so fun! This little monster is popped up over an ODBD Pierced Oval, ODBD Pierced Rectangles and the paper is from the ODBD Birthday Bash Collection.

Thankful for Stencilled Backgrounds!

Hello there!  
I haven't used my copic air brush system in FOREVER!  
And now I have rediscovered it and I LOVE it!!!  

Today, I have a card made with some of the new and some of the old goodies

Recently, I cut a piece of thin plastic packaging with the Boho Background die to create a stencil that I can used over and over.  I air brushed using the stencil to create the background and cut the panel out with a Lavish Layers die.  I then stamped the image from Seeds of Today and colored in areas with more copics that match the beautiful Plum Pizzazz and Whimsical Flowers Paper.  The Thanks die cut is adhered to a Double Stitched Pennant which is popped up over the main image.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

Don't you just love this adorable Bountiful Basket?
I created a little shabby sewing basket with lots of goodies inside.  I created little cards with Double Stitched Rectangles for buttons, sewing needles and snippets of 'lace'. I used the new Sewing Set dies along with Beautiful Borders and Deco Borders.
I used vellum to make a little needle holder.  I wound the 'lace' around a couple of cards.  There is also a little 3x3 gift card in the ensemble which features Fancy Fritillary and Layered Lacey Ovals.  
The papers are from Easter Card Collection and Pastel Paper Pack.  I stamped the sentiment from A Happy Hello onto a Mini Stitched Heart and attached it to the front of the basket.  A seam binding bow completes this adorable Bountiful Basket!

Here is my second project:

This image is also from A Happy Hello and is stamped onto a Double Stitched Rectangle.  I used copics to outline the image and to do Pointillism technique in the surrounding areas.  The papers are from the new Plum Pizzazz Paper Pack.  The yellow strip is a discard of a basket handle from my first basket attempt which failed! :)  That back panel is cut with a Pierced Rectangle.  The bow is from the Circle Ornaments dies and I completed the card with the beautiful new Thanks die!

 Good morning!

Here is a card I made for the ODBDSLC281 Let's Be Sentimental Challenge!  I colored the praying hands image from the new set called Handle With Prayer with copics to match the card stock.  Then I cut it out with the coordinating Praying Hands die.  The sentiment is stamped onto the smallest of the Filigree Frames dies and both the sentiment and the praying hands are popped up onto the largest of the Filigree Frames dies.  The bottom panel is cut with a Snowflake Sky die.  I added a seam binding bow to complete the card.

I also made this one:

I was stuck on a yellow kick!  This time I made a frame with Rectangles dies and layered it over a Lavish Layer panel and a Snowflake Sky panel.  Tucked inside the frame are the new Praying Border die, a Small Bow die and a Mini Tag die stamped with a Mini Tag Sentiment.  A tiny pearl completes this card. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!

Good morning!  This is for today's Sketch Challenge at Splitcoast!  I thought Rudolph from North Coast Creations would be perfect peeking out from the little window in the sketch!  I colored him with copics and then cut him out with the matching Reindeer die, cutting off his poor little legs to fit!  The other dies I used are ODBD: Pierced Circles, Double Stitched Rectangles, Deco Border, Snowflake Sky.  The paper is from the ODBD Holly Jolly Collection.

Thanks so much for looking!  
Have a wonderful day!

Taking a Look Back at the December ODBD Release

Today we are taking a look back at the wonderful new goodies from 

My card features The Beatitudes and the new Deco Border die!  The three panels are cut with a Snowflake Sky die, a Lavish Layer die and a Rectangle die.  Before stamping The Beatitudes, I used the largest cross from the Ornamental Crosses dies set as a stencil and used Pan Pastels to sponge the cross.  The Pan Pastels color is much closer to the paper color in real life.  I cut a thin strip of the same paper to mimic ribbon and cut out the bow from Circle Ornaments to add to the card.

Heart Blessing

Good morning!  

I am loving these little Pennant Flag Verses and the Pennant Flag dies to match!  Today's card is really simple!  I cut a panel with a Pierced Rectangle and one of the Ornate Hearts.  I cut a heart frame with the two largest Ornate Hearts and glued it the the heart opening of the panel.  I tucked a piece of designer paper from the Boho Bolds Paper Collection behind the panel.  I stamped the Pennant Flag Verse and after cutting it out with the Pennant Flag die, I attached it to the front of the heart in a curvy fashion.  Then I cut the bow with one of the Circle Ornament dies and added it to the the heart frame to complete the card!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy your day!
