Good morning!
Welcome to the North Coast Creations May New Release!  Two great new masculine sets that will be great additions to your collection!  And as always, you have an opportunity to win!  Here are the details:

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 May 31st, 2015 at 10:00 PM EDT to leave a comments on the participating designers blogs for a chance to win! Two random winners will be selected from the comments left on the designers blogs, the winners will be announced on the NCC Blog on June 1, 2015, be sure to check back there to see if you have won!

Here is full view of my first card:

 I stamped the image twice and colored the sails and boat on both so I could cut one set of those pieces out to do the paper tole technique.  You can see the results on the close-up photo at the top.  I added some white caps with copic white paint. The map behind is from a map book that belonged to my Dad.  We found lots of maps in his stash while cleaning out his office a few months back.  We all miss him so bad!  I guess that never goes away.  I think he would be pleased that I am using the maps in this way.  

Here is my second card:

I wanted to go a little more feminine with the deer.  I stamped him in green and layered him over a panel embossed with the ODBD Quatrefoil die and layered that over the ODBD Layered Lacy Square die.  

Here are the NCC sets I used today:

Faith Hope and Love


Hi there!  
I wanted to share an easy favor idea for 
a wedding, a shower, or a party! 

I gathered my supplies, including chocolate bars! 
The papers I used are from PaperandMore:
This shimmery pink is so gorgeous! 
 I cut three panels 5 1/4 x 7.  
Or you can use the paper wrapper as a guide for your measurements.

I used a strong adhesive to glue the paper around the candy bar.  You don't want them falling apart before your guests can enjoy them!

Next I adhered pretty satin ribbon,
 bringing the ends together on the top of the bar.

The ends will be hidden behind the sentiment.  Here I have used an ODBD sentiment from Love Scriptures and cut it out with a Spellbinders die.

Another option would be to adhere a pretty embellishment!  
This beautiful butterfly is from the new ODBD Fancy Fritillary die set!

One more look!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

All Things Bright and Beautiful

I have a clean and simple card today for the ODBDSLC239
 This week was an inspiration challenge and I am actually a day late!  Oh well! 

This new Fancy Fritillary butterfly die is so beautiful!  I chose to keep it the main focus for this card to show all the wonderful details of the die.  The designer paper is from the Rustic Beauty Paper Collection.  The sentiment is from the new set called Belles Vignes.  I added a simple purple bow to complete the card.

Here are the ODBD products I used:

Inspired by Barbie!

Good morning!  
I am playing in the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast this morning as well as the Dirty Dozen Theme for May!  We used a Barbie Pinterest Board as our inspiration and THIS is the one that inspired me 
I love the pretty roses in her dress!  

The gorgeous Shabby Rose Paper Collection reminds me of the dress and I used several different scraps to make my heart as well as the background.  The sentiment is from the new ODBD set called Spread Your Wings and the pretty die cut butterfly is the new ODBD Fancy Fritillary die!  

Here are all the ODBD products I used:

Thanks so much for looking and hope you have a great day!

An Easy DIY Wedding Invitation

 Here is an easy DIY invitation idea for weddings.  The gorgeous, quality papers and envelopes from are the perfect papers and envies for this project!

I used the following products:

I printed the invitation onto the White Canvas Card Stock 80# and cut it to fit inside the Chocolate Brown Solid Backing Card.  I used a small hole punch to punch through the invitation, using the holes on the backing card as a guide for hole placement.  (At the time I took this photo, I had not yet decided to have an envelope liner as seen in the top photo.)

I added the pretty ribbon and then decided I needed a liner in the A-7 Chocolate Brown Solid Envelope!  So I used the envelope as a guide to decide where to cut for the liner.  I also cut slight angles out of one end of the liner to match the envelope flap.  After getting this first one figured out and measured, it would be a breeze to then make mass quantities of this invitation. 

You can see how I just tucked the Brown Spring Bloom on Classic White Solid paper inside and added a couple of strips of adhesive to adhere it to the flap. Here is the finished project again:

Thank you for joining me for this quick and easy tutorial!  
Have a wonderful day!

Your Special Day

Here is a card that can be used for several special occasions.  Birthdays, Anniversaries, Weddings, etc. 

I used gorgeous papers from

I used a stamp set from North Coast Creations called Floral Sentiments 6.  I colored the image with copic markers and cut the image and the mat out with Spellbinders A-2 dies.  The vellum layer is embossed with a die from the ODBD Flourished Star Pattern set.  It is hard to see in the photo but the pink layer under the vellum is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  This paper takes embossing so beautifully!  I added a pretty seam binding bow to complete the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by! 
Have a wonderful day!
