North Coast Creations November Release

Welcome to the November release from North Coast Creations! I have 2 samples for you today using Nutcracker and Snow Angel Murphy.

For fun I looked up “Nutcracker” to see how it was colored……there is such a variety! I decided to go with this color combo. It’s colored with Copics, some white gel pen and Spica glitter pens.

The background is ODBD Snowflake Background.

My next card is from the Crazy Critters line, and loveable Murphy! He really is! I can just see him rolling in the snow too… now whether he’s good enough to make a snow angel, I don’t know! lol

He’s colored with Copics, white gel pen, then for the snow I used a ‘snow pen’ which when heated puffs up.

The snowflake paper is from the Christmas Paper Collection 2013, by ODBD. I also used the Pennants die, Circle Ornaments die, and Zinnia and Leaves die, again by ODBD.  

You can also see all the info on the NCC blog here.

Taking a Look Back at November…ODBD


Today we are taking a look back at ODBD November release. I have a variety to share with you from birthday to Christmas!
Here are the sets I used for my samples today































For more inspiration using the November release be sure to visit the
ODBD Blog.

I stamped the verse from His Birth in Memento Rich Cocoa and used Circle Ornaments to cut it out, sponging with distress Walnut Stain. Using the star shape from Flourished Star Pattern, I cut the tips off of the top and bottom and scooted them in a bit to make a wide scalloped layer from dark brown cardstock.
I also used Beautiful Borders and added some Stickles to the starbursts.

This is also for the Mojo Sketch #371

Here are a couple more samples, the first done for a Splitcoast challenge, single layer card. I stamped and embossed in fine detail silver, Come Let Us Adore Him and embossed only with Flourished Star Pattern.

This next one is a birthday card for a dear friend that just opened a natural health/boutique oriented store. I thought the ‘Reach for the stars’ sentiment was perfect for this! I used Sparkling Stars for the front flap window and the 3 inner ones stamped with Shine On. The embossing folder is by Darice, ink is Adirondack Mountain Rose and distress Bundled Sage. 

I used Soulful Stitches Collection on the inside and a greeting from Be Joyful.

Taking a Look Back at the NCC October Release!

Hello! Today we’re taking a look back at the October North Coast Creations release! For my sample today I used Snowman Family.

Wow…we actually had a dusting of SNOW last weekend! Not enough to have fun like this though!!

Stamped in Nautical Blue and colored with Copics, then a ‘snow pen’ heated to puff it up.

The embossing folder is Winter Frolic (perfect name to match the image!)

ODBD Shine On (stamped off twice in Pine Needles), die cut with ODBD Sparkling Stars and sentiments stamped in Nautical Blue.

All the info can be found on the NCC blog too.

For more fun October creations, see what the rest of the coasters did!

A Shining Star…ODBD November Release!


Welcome to the November ODBD release!
Once again you’re in for a real treat with the beautiful images, dies and paper! So sit back and enjoy what we’ve been busy creating!

I used a Fun and Fancy Folds Double Display base, these come already cut and scored! Easy peasy! I cut the Winter Collection paper to fit and sponged the edges with Pumice Stone. Michelle did such an awesome job designing this paper!! It has the ‘look’ of metallic without being actual metallic! Makes taking pictures sooooo much easier and it’s just gorgeous!!

Doesn’t it look like glitter!!!
I stamped His Birth with embossing ink and heat embossed fine detail silver embossing powder, then used Sparkling Stars! The sentiments from His Birth and Snowflake Stars are also embossed and are on Vintage Flourish Pattern
















I love that this release also has some variety, not just holiday themed.

For this card I used another new paper pack, Christmas Collection 2014, Sparkling Stars die, sentiment from Reach for the Stars, Flourished Star Pattern die and Doily die.
I used my sewing maching (no thread) to mimic the Flourished Star Pattern die on the rest of the layers.

I love those tiny stars!

Fall is in the air here in my part of the country, trees are in full color and it won’t be long until we’re thinking Thanksgiving!

This is Tommy Turkey, colored with Copics and cut out-of-box with ODBD Vintage Labels. I stamped him several times cutting out the body and beak, popping those up.

And….
it won’t be long until the snowflakes start falling!

For my next card, who doesn’t love a fun toboggan ride in fresh snow!!

Snowman Family is colored with Copics with a spinkling of Flower Soft for the snow. DP is ODBD Christmas Collection 2013 and the buttons are ODBD Matting Circles.

A Look Back at October…ODBD

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread designs October release. You can also visit the ODBD Blog for more info. And don’t forget the November Pre-Order Special! More on that in a few…

 

 

 

 

 

Mistletoe Ornament, God’s Timing, Matting Circles from October are what I used for my card today, plus Circle Ornaments from last year.

I stamped the image in Distress Iced Spruce, embossed and colored with Copics.

And that gorgeous paper? Well that’s part of the November release that you can still get on pre-order special now until Oct. 31!!

Speaking of this beautiful paper…

I had made a poinsettia from the Peaceful Poinsettia die (which still needs to be added to a card) and I couldn’t stand the thought of wasting the piece of paper I’d cut them from! Tell me I’m NOT the only one like this!!

the poinsettia…waiting

I’d done a technique last week on Splitcoast, inlaid die cuts, which immediately made me think how to save my dp!

Voila!

I sponged the poinsettias while still in the die with Adirondack Aqua. The greeting is from Holly Wreath.

A simple save!!

For many more awesome October inspirations, please see my sister sticks!
