NCC May New Release-Wow!!!

Hello crafty friends! I have the North Coast Creations May release to show you and it's a real wow release!!! These scenes are so beautiful and make excellent masculine cards!!! In case you are wondering, North Coast Creations is one of the sister companies to Our Daily Bread Designs and you know how much I love their products!!! You get the same high quality deeply etched rubber stamps.  Before I get going too far, let me tell you about the gift certificates that will be available to two of you!
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!

I have used the North Coast Creations Sail away stamp set and heat embossed the images with black embossing powder. I paired it with the new Our Daily Bread Vintage Ephemera papers to make this masculine card. I just added ODBD die cuts using the Pennants Dies, Antique Labels and Borders, Elegant Ovals and  Faithful Fish Pattern Die. Check out the materials list below for links to these products!!!
I combined both of the new stamp sets to make this Double Display card.  I took a piece of 6"x11" glossy card stock and stamped the boat image with gray ink. I masked off the clouds and sun  so that I could make the sky much larger.  Then I inked the water sections of the stamp and created the lake. I used the ground stamp from the Deer Silhouette Greeting and formed the landscape. I then inked just the top portion of the tree stamp and created the low shrubbery. The trees were then created and I inked the leaf portion of the stamp to fill in and make some trees larger and fuller.  I tucked in the two deer and then used a Colorbox stylus tool to streak in the sky. I inked some of the birds from the boat stamp and added extra birds in the sky. I bit of green was added to the trees and then the highlights were added with a gel pen. The scene was set aside to dry while I stamped the sentiment. I sprayed the scene with a clear coat to bring up the colors and preserve the gel pen highlighting from rubbing off. I then sponged the front of the card with aqua ink and began cutting the scene apart and mounting it on Tempting Turquoise card stock. I mounted all of the pieces to the card base and added the sentiment.

Now it's time to check out what the other girls have made for you along with the NCC Blog

Double WOW! The cards are stunning. The double display card must have taken a lot of work! Brilliant idea. And I like the monotone on the boat card. Would make a wonderful masculine card. TFS
