Color Fusers Blog Hop: July 2016 – Part 2

Welcome to the 2nd COLOR FUSE BLOG HOP!  Twice a month on the first and third Monday’s we’ll be bringing you inspiration through color!  July’s hops will feature three gorgeous In Colors.

Color Fuse July Logo

I almost went with a floral card, but I wanted to try using these colors in a different way.

Balloon Celebration by becreativewithnicole.com

I haven’t used BALLOON CELEBRATION much and it was calling out to me, so I gave it a try in a clean and simple way.

Balloon Celebration becreativewithnicole

I used bold black and white striped paper for a pop against the Peekaboo Peach card base.  The balloons are done with Flirty Flamingo with the black outline making them stand out nicely.  My favorite little detail though, is the pop of Cucumber Crush in the sentiment.  I love that unexpected bit of color at the end.

Balloon Celebration by becreativewithnicole.com

I hope you enjoyed this unusual idea with the color combo for July.  These three gorgeous colors are must haves to work with!  Are you ready for more inspiration??  Let’s move on to the rest of the Color Fusers Design Team and see what awesomeness they have for us today!  Just follow the links below and enjoy all the inspiration!

Sweet Cupcake

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week we are featuring our favorite new stamp set from the new catalog.

The SWEET CUPCAKE BUNDLE was the first thing on my wish list after seeing the new catalog.  I simply love the realistic look of these yummy cupcakes!  And with the bundle you get coordinating framelits so no fussy cutting!

Sweet Cupcake becreativewithnicole.com

The biggest thing to decide when creating these cupcakes was the colors.  You want three distinct layers of color for both the icing and cupcake.

Sweet Cupcake

This cupcake is chocolate, so I layered Sahara Sand, Tip top Taupe and Soft Suede.  For a fun yummy frosting I went with Soft Sky, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay.  All of these colors are favorites for me, especially Bermuda Bay.

Sweet Cupcake by becreativewithnicole.com

To go along with the chocolate cupcake, I went with a Soft Suede card base and a gorgeous gold polka dot paper.  I got the gold polka dots from the beautiful POP OF PINK SPECIALTY DSP.  This is such a a fabulous paper that I didn’t add any other bling, although I did test out Bermuda Bay Sequins…it was just better without.  Sometimes less is definitely more!  Speaking of MORE, have you subscribed to the July Mini Session yet??  If you haven’t you are missing out!

Marquee Messages

I have a fun new take on the new stamp set MARQUEE MESSAGES…..I went METALLIC!

Marquee Messages becraetivewithnicole.com

I have been playing with the awesome FABULOUS FOIL DESIGNER ACETATE and was inspired to put together a card full of SILVER.

Marquee Messages

I went with Basic Gray and Smokey Slate as my coordinating colors.  When put together with silver, you get a fantastic metallic look.  The entire marquee is completely embossed in silver.  I did one on Smokey Slate and one of Basic Gray so I could cut out the arrow to pop up on dimensionals.  I added embossed sentiments as well to make sure they stood out.  To make the outlined sentiment bolder, I colored the letters in with markers.

Marquee Messages becraetivewithnicole.com

Did you notice the fun polka dots??  That’s the FABULOUS FOIL DESIGNER ACETATE I talked about earlier.  I love all the fun patterns and you can use the front in gold or the back in silver!

Give the metallic look a try, love the glamour!  You can see the supplies I used below and click on each to shop.  Now is a great time to get items from your wish list with BONUS DAYS going on!

Time for Cake

For today, I thought I’d share a fun card that could be for a birthday or another celebration that involves CAKE!

Party with Cake becreativewithnicole.com

I made the outside of the card a celebration with the fun FESTIVE BIRTHDAY DSP and silver glimmer confetti.  But wait until you see the inside…….

Party with Cake Inside becreativewithnicole

The inside is quite festive too!  I added in a die cut cake from the BIGGEST BIRTHDAY EVER bundle and sentiments from PARTY WITH CAKE.

Party with Cake Inside

I love all the bold colors from the FESTIVE BIRTHDAY DSP.  They really make this a bright and happy card!  And the SILVER GLIMMER confetti from the SPRINKLES PUNCH were the perfect finishing touch.  Who doesn’t love glimmer and glitter!

Party with Cake

All of the stamps and accessories from this card coordinate so beautifully!  Do you have a birthday or a party coming up that you need a card for??  Why not give this idea a try!  Right now we have a fantastic promotion from Stampin’ Up! called BONUS DAYS.  You get paid to shop!  Check out the details below and shop for the products on your wish list.  This deal ends soon so take advantage of it today!

Tiny Treat Box

Today I’m going 3D with a fun little TINY TREAT BOX.  You can find these great little boxes on page 176 of the new catalog, 16 boxes for just $7.50!  What a great way to give a little party favor or treat!

Party Favor becreativewithnicole.com

Isn’t this super cute!!  All you need is a little designer paper and a sentiment.  I also have a bow on the top, it really adds a special touch.

Party Favor by becreativewithnicole

This particular box was designed by my awesome upline Patty Bennett.  Over the weekend she did a group meeting on Facebook and this was one of the projects we made.  I love the bright colors of the FESTIVE BIRTHDAY DSP.  All the pieces of the box were sent to me, I just had to add a sentiment and assemble.  What a fun treat for me to just put a project together without having to think too much!  I added in a sentiment from SUNBURST SAYINGS.  I loved “It’s Your Day” for this box, but the sentiment is straight and I had a curved banner to work with.  So guess what, I bent the sentiment just enough to fit!  It’s not photopolymer, but I was able to get it to work!

bent stamp

The stamp didn’t want to bend much or stay in place long, but I got it fixed long enough to make it work!

Party Favor becreativewithnicole.com

I’m so glad I got a chance to try out the CLEAR TINY TREAT BOX, it will be on my next order for sure!

Would you like to have the luxury I did of creating without having to put time into designing it all??  Well I have just the thing for you!  The JULY MINI SESSION from Create with Connie and Mary is what you need!  This month’s session went live today and is full of fabulous ideas!  We have 5 full tutorials for you so all you have to do is sit down and have fun.

A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week we are featuring our favorite new designer series paper from the catalog.

Designer Series Paper is a favorite product of mine, so many great patterns to choose from.  It’s an easy way to add color and dress up your cards or projects.  So far, I think that A LITTLE FOXY DSP is my favorite.  But since I go through phases of favorites, that can change tomorrow!  But for now, A LITTLE FOXY and the coordinating stamp set FOXY FRIENDS are on my desk all the time.

Foxy Friends becreativewithnicole.com

The colors in this collection of papers are GORGEOUS!  I especially love stripes right now, so I used that particular paper for my card today.

Foxy Friends

The striped paper provides a fabulous background for my card.  It gives interest without being too overwhelming.  I added in the banners from another design of the DSP, I just fussy cut enough of the banners to go across the top of the card.  You’ll notice that I added in a couple other stamp sets as well.  They just coordinated so well with this card, I had to!  Love all the birthday sets available and how well they all work together! BALLOON CELEBRATION was a perfect addition for the fox to hold a sweet balloon.  And NUMBER OF YEARS provided a fabulous sentiment.  Both the balloon and sentiment were heat embossed to stand out and give a little texture to the card.

Foxy Friends becreativewithnicole.com

Did you know that I used this fabulous stamp set FOXY FRIENDS for my tutorial in the upcoming JULY MINI SESSION?  Yep, a super fun 3D project with these cute little critters that you won’t want to miss!  How about a sneak peek……..
