NCC Release and News


I am excited to announce that I am now a part of the North Coast Creations Design Team! And with that little announcement, on to the next announcement which is Welcome to the North Coast Creations November New Releases! Two new sets are being released for your stamping pleasure and I am happy to share them and some cards with you today. Continue reading below to see how you could win a NCC Gift Certificate.

Here are the stamp sets I used:

King of the Road          King of the Road

My first card uses Santa Claws. Colored him with copics and used white gel pen on the circles and on the ribbon. Also used some silver smooch on the ribbon. Used some silver Flower Soft on the hat.

Next I have two cards using Santa Paws. My first card is a tent card. Colored with prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits. Sliver pen used on the snowflake. Spellbinder used to cut out the oval and layer. Sentiment stamped inside and some bling added. All cardstock and design paper was sponged with distress ink.


When I first saw this set I had an idea that I hoped would work. With the help of the ODBD Window Die, my card became a reality.


Used brick embossing folder for my background and sanded the cardstock down to give the ‘wall’ a weathered look. Stamped and masked the branch,  colored the ornament with prismacolor pencil Magenta and used a white gel pen on the snowflake. Dog is colored with copics and cut out completely and popped up.  ODBD Window Die actually has acetate behind it to make it look like a real window.

We will be choosing 2 winners who will receive a $10 gift certificate to the store for stamps just for commenting on our Design Team cards! You have until November 17, 2013 at 10:00PM EST to make a comment on each of our designers blog posts. Our 2 random winners will be announced on the North Coast Creations Blog on November 18, 2013.

Make sure you stop and see what the rest of the Design Team has created. You won’t be sorry.
