Welcome to the North Coast Creations September Release! We have some super cute new images & dies for you this month. I just love all these adorable animals!

For my first card, I stamped, colored & die cut this sweet little baby elephant. After I die cut a bunch of stars & the pink gingham bg I put it all together & added the greeting on the left.
Here’s a look at the inside & next to it are the Copics I used.

My next card uses the same set, but a different pair of baby animals.

For this card, again the animals were stamped, colored & die cut. I had a picture in my head of cute little stuffed animals on a window ledge so that’s what I went for here. I added some little stars & made a moon by first die cutting a circle, then using another circle die to cut part of it off & make a crescent moon.
Here’s a look at the inside & next to it are the Copics I used.

My next two cards feature the cute Llama set. 


On this first card, I put the llama image into my Misti, stamped it onto kraft, then used Prismacolor pencils to color it. I picked colors that went w/ the mottled bg I made using Distress oxide inks. 
Here’s a look at the inside.


I used the same set but went w/ a gradient shades of blue for the llamas & made a sort of picture frame around them.

Here’s a look at the inside.

The final two cards use the Go Wild set.

The adorable little giraffes were stamped, colored & die cut & I put one on top of the oval greeting panel & 2 more peeking around the edges.
Here’s a look at the inside & next to it are the Copics I used.


I used all of the other cute critter from the set for this one. After stamping, coloring & die cutting, I used a stencil to add the blue borders then die cut the circles to put all my animals inside. 
Here’s a look at the inside & next to it are the Copics I used.

Please stop by and leave a little love for all of the NCC Team..it will be so appreciated!

Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT649) on Splitcoast is Domestic Inspiration…be inspired by something in your home. Whaaaaaaaat? I’m in the process of moving. What isn’t already boxed is waiting to be boxed. My home resembles nothing so much as a fire sale. But I still have some pictures so I was inspired by this (you can see the picture in the lower right in front of the card below). 

In fact, we were the “parents” of Odie (the bird) for almost 27 years until his passing a few years ago. DRS Designs named the parrot image Odie Pretty Bird after him. Pretty Bird was his favorite thing to say..especially if he was misbehaving. And he would from time to time, look you in the eye & lie to you, lol. “Odie, did you do this?” He’d shake his head & repeat “no, no, no”. We called it his SOB defense, as in Some Other Bird did it. I miss that little character every day!

Anyway, after stamping &  coloring Pretty Bird Odie  &  the Palm Tree &  flowers, I fussy cut them all.  On the square inside the popped up frame, I stamped a portion of the Flamingo scene &  colored it. Then everything was arranged on top w/ just enough room for the greeting. 

Here’s the inside & the Copic I used.

You have through Sunday Aug 20 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on Aug 21 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Airplane! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

For my Airplane card, I did the opposite of what I usually do, I picked out the papers first then colored my scene to go with them. I cut the piece of designer paper w/ the text & put it into my Misti & stamped the Airplane first w/ Memento ink. After coloring it w/ Prismacolor pencils, I stamped over it w/ Versafine to bring the details back then antiqued it a bit by sponging on some antique linen ink & edged it w/ a black marker. The greeting was stamped on a small piece of vellum & I die cut a stitched flag frame to go over it. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

Next stop is Vickie‘s Blog!  Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!
