North Coast Creations Release

Poppiesajh

Welcome to the North Coast Creations January New Releases!  NCC is releasing 3 wonderful stamps this month:

NCC-Regular Size Set    NCC-Regular Size Set        

                                NCC-Regular Size Set   


I used Floral Sentiments for my first card. Stamped the flower twice. Colored the flowers with copics. Cut out the entire flower. Cut out just the second flower petals and attached the petal section to the flower with dimensions to give the flower a 3-D look. Stamped the sentiment with versamark and ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder.

Distressed the background and pattern paper with distress inks. Attached the entire flower with dimensions as well as the scallop rectangle.

I love poppies. Always have. Grew up with them blooming in my mom’s flowerbed. It is my dream to have some at my house, maybe this spring I can finally plant some. So when Kelley showed us the following set Floral Sentiments 3, I knew I wanted the flowers to “pop” off the card.

Again I stamped the flowers twice, colored them with copics and cut out just the poppies. On the cutout poppies, I added some black Flower Soft to the centers. Attached the cutout poppies to the stamped poppies with dimensions. Stamped sentiment and added a bow.

I'm not a fussy cutter, but you certainly show us what miracles and 3D effects it can create!
