Welcome to the North Coast Creations May Release Hop!

Hello and welcome to the May North Coast Creations Release Hop!  Today we get to show you two brand new North Coast Creations stamp sets. Grab a cup of coffee or tea and sit back and relax. My first card is a sweet little card perfect for a girl that goes to ballet, or just to brighten someones day. I've used the stamp set "Ballet" and kept it real simple. I created my own background and stamped the ballet slippers all over my white card panel, embossed it with a top note embossing folder. I then stamped the ballet slippers on a white panel that I cut with the Vintage Labels die by ODBD and stamped my sentiment over the middle of the label. Added a sweet seam binding bow and a ballet dancer charm and voila my card was done.



Paper: White

Stamps: NCC Ballet

Ink: Memento Angel Pink, VersaFine Onyx Black

Accessories: ODBD Custom die Vintaage Labels , seam binding in baby pink, ballerina charm, Top note embossing folder (QuickKutz)  homemade shimmer spray

For my second card I went more masculine and kept it simple.  I did use the second stamp set from this release which is called "Happy Camper" and in combination with some burlap and fussy cutting this is what came out

The great outdoors
