Marquee Messages becreativewithnicole.com

Marquee Messages by becreativewithnicole

This set is perfect with the new designer paper called POP OF PINK.  Lots of bold and sassy designs give you tons of options!  I used a fun black and white pattern with Melon Mambo paper and ink.  There is also a great set of washi tape that coordinates called POP OF PINK DESIGNER WASHI.  I added in the pink striped design of the washi for a nice little contrast.

Marquee Messages

Did you notice all the bling??  The marquee sign is glammed up with lots of RHINESTONES!  The small ones are just the right size.  I also added SILVER FOIL for the starburst on the sides of the sentiment.  Just another small way to take it up a notch!

Marquee Messges

As you can see, there is a lot of variety with this stamp set!  You have lots of sentiments to work with so you can do anything from a way to go card to a birthday invitation!  This is such a fun set to work with!  You can click on the image above to learn more!

Creation Station Blog Hop: All New Products!

Creation Station header

Welcome to the Creation Station Blog Hop for June!  This month we are all about NEW PRODUCTS!!!!  Yep, it’s that magical time of year when the new ANNUAL CATALOG is released with tons of new stamps and goodies to create with. We have tons of ideas to share, so be sure to hop all the way around to see everyone’s cards and projects!

I splurged and got new goodies shipped 2nd day air (EEK….so excited) so I have lots of new stamps and things to use.  The first thing I gravitated to was the awesome new SWEET CUPCAKE BUNDLE.

Sweet Cupcake Bundle becreativewithnicole.com

I’m totally obsessed with the amazingly realistic cupcake frosting!  Isn’t this just too cool!

Sweet Cupcake Bundle

The bundle has the Sweet Cupcake photopolymer stamp set and Cupcake Cutouts Framelits.  There are so many ways to use them alone or together….I can’t wait to come up with as many ideas as possible!

Sweet Cupcake Mini Treat Card becreativewithnicole.com

I went a little bolder with today’s card versus the Peekaboo Peach card from yesterday.  This time POP OF PINK DSP was my inspiration.  The MINI TREAT BAG thinlit gives this card a fun playful design.  The inside of the card is just as bold as the outside using Melon Mambo, Whisper White and Basic Black.  I also added in a sprinkle of silver with glimmer paper and sequins.

Sweet Cupcake becreativewithnicole

The cupcake itself is only two colors surprisingly enough!  The cupcake liner is Smokey Slate and the frosting is Melon Mambo.  I simply stamped with different tones of ink.  Layer one for both is full strength ink then layers two and three are stamped off once.  With the coordinating die cuts, I had them cut out and on the card in no time!  I also used my favorite new loopy die from the framelits to add bling.  I have a feeling that this loopy die cut will end up on more than just Sweet Cupcake cards! Ok….enough about how much I love this bundle, lets move on to what the rest of the team has to offer.

The next stop is DENITA’S awesome blog.   If you’ve just started here, you can also go back to ELIZABETH’S wonderful blog to see her project for today.  Be sure to hop all the way around to see all the fabulous new catalog inspiration!

Peekaboo Peach

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This month we are featuring the NEW IN COLORS!!  PEEKABOO PEACH is the first color up and one of my favorites!

SpringBlogHopBadge

This new stamp set and coordinating framelits was a must have for my first order….SWEET CUPCAKE and CUPCAKE CUTOUTS.

Sweet Cupcake becreativewithnicole

 I knew that this awesome cupcake would look amazing in PEEKABOO PEACH!  This cupcake is a layering process of three stamps to give lots of dimension and shading.  This time I used SOFT SUEDE and TIP TOP TAUPE for the cupcake wrapper and all PEEKABOO PEACH for the icing.  It’s just a matter of stamping off and layering to get this beautiful effect.

Sweet Cupcake by becreativewithnicole

Everything, yes absolutely everything, on this card is NEW!  I pointed out a few things for you in the picture.  The die cuts are all from CUPCAKE CUTOUTS.  The swirly die along the top and bottom of the card is a favorite and will be used for more than just birthday cards!  I also added in COPPER THREAD which coordinates beautifully with PEEKABOO PEACH.  And finally, I used a sentiment on the envelope from CONFETTI CELEBRATION.  All of these items coordinate well which is one of the reasons I love Stampin’ Up! products so much!

Confetti Celebration

Did you know that today is a special day??  It’ the first day that you can order from the BRAND NEW 2016-2017 Stampin’ Up! Catalog!!!  Yep, I’m excited….can you tell?

CATALOG CLICK TO VIEWThis is such an amazing catalog….my wish list is literally a mile long!  I even splurged today and placed an order with 2nd day air so I’ll have it Friday!  Can’t wait to start working with NEW PRODUCTS!!!  Speaking of new, here’s a card for today that combines new and old, well not too old, PARTY WITH CAKE has been released in the new catalog too!

Confetti Celebration becreativewithnicole

Isn’t this so much fun!!  I used a NEW designer paper, a NEW stamp set and a NEW punch!

Confeti Celebration becreativewithnicole.com

I started out with the idea to use a favorite new color combination of WATERMELON WONDER and DAPPER DENIM.  Since this card is all about celebrating, I added in a fun paper design from the new POP OF PINK Specialty Designer Series Paper.

close up

I created a fun extended greeting by combining die cut negatives from the PARTY POP UP thinlits and sentiments from CONFETTI CELEBRATION.  Alternating colors makes the sentiment “pop” against the gold sprinkle paper.  And for a little extra bling, I added punch outs of streamers and confetti using the fun new SPRINKLES PUNCH.  I think this new punch is a real MUST HAVE!  Imagine all the awesome shaker cards that can be made with this punch!!

inside

And as always I had to make the inside of the card as happy as the outside!  I used sentiments from PARTY WITH CAKE and added in more streamers.  Overall this card was way too much fun!!

Bold Butterfly

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week we our theme is FLY AWAY, so we are featuring cards with birds and butterflies.

SpringBlogHopBadge

I incorporated new and old in my card that features a beautiful BUTTERFLY.

watercolor wings becreativewithnicole

I found a fun new color combination using the new In Color DAPPER DENIM with WATERMELON WONDER.  As you can see I also added in a bit of bling by using Silver Glimmer paper for the swirls.  I can tell you right now that the new SWIRLY BIRD BUNDLE is a MUST HAVE!!! This swirly die cut is TOO.MUCH.FUN.

Watercolor Wings

The Dapper Denim background is sponged on with areas darker and lighter for a unique look.  The silver swirl and sequins are gorgeous with these bold colors.

The sentiment in black and white pops against all the colors and gives a bold look.  I used words from the May My Paper Pumpkin kit.  This one had lots of useful sentiments that are perfect for cutting out like this.

Watercolor Wings inside

I also embellished the inside of the card.  I used a piece of the polka dot background along the bottom.  It was an extra scrap that was put to good use!  The butterflies are stamped off to be lighter so the sentiment in Dapper Denim really stands out.

Now, let’s get to the good stuff, the supply list!

SUPPLIES:

STAMPS:   Watercolor Wings, May My Paper Pumpkin stamps

INKS: Versa Mark, Dapper Denim, Watermelon Wonder

PAPER: Whisper White, Dapper Denim, Watermelon Wonder, Basic Black, Silver Glimmer

ACCESSORIES:  Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, Polka Dot Decorative Mask, Silver Sequins,White embossing powder, heat tool, embossing buddy, Paper Snips, Stampin’ Trimmer, bone folder, dimensionals, Fine Tip Glue Pen

Sunburst Birthday

Ready for another new sample??  You may be noticing a trend here with my cards this week….I am currently obsessed with the SUNBURST THINLIT and SWIRLY BIRD.

Sunburst Birthday becreativewithnicole.com

I also can’t get enough of the new In Color PEEKABOO PEACH.  It’s so gorgeous paired with POOL PARTY so be prepared to see lots of these two colors!

Sunburst Birthday

This card ended up being mostly die cuts and very little stamping by time I was done.  It all started with the SWIRLY SCRIBBLES THINLITS.  I added vellum and Pool Party waves behind the sunburst and a swirly on top of it.  I also added in a few silver clouds that were fussy cut from the SHINE ON DSP.

Sunburst

For the sentiment, I used a retiring set, RAY OF SUNSHINE.  The sentiments are fantastic paired with the SUNBURST SAYINGS BUNDLE.  Like I’ve said before, I love how the different stamp sets work together and compliment each other.  You may also notice the sentiment is white embossed on black cardstock.  This look just pops against the softer pastel colors….I can’t get enough of this look!

I hope you are enjoying all the previews of upcoming stamp sets, I love playing with all the pre-order products!

Confetti Celebration becreativewithnicole

I actually used TWO new products plus one that carries over.

Confetti Celebration

The focal point of my card is a combination of a sentiment from CONFETTI CELEBRATION, a swirly die cut from the SWIRLY SCRIBBLES THINLIT and a current sentiment from PARTY WITH CAKE.  This showcases quite nicely how well stamp sets and products from Stampin’ Up! coordinate and work together.

Confetti Celebration becreativewithnicole

There’s a bit of bling here too…of course!  The silver polka dot paper from the SHINE ON DSP was the starting point with the SILVER GLIMMER PAPER and RHINESTONES being a natural addition.  I threw in one more color…….PEEKABOO PEACH.  It’s my favorite new In Color by far!  I actually have another SNEAK PEEK card for you tomorrow featuring it as a part of my favorite new color combo.

Peekaboo Peach Sunburst

I have a super fun card to share today combining a couple of my current favorite products, SWIRLY BIRD and the SUNBURST THINLIT.

Swirly Bird by becreativewithnicole.com

This card just makes me HAPPY!  I love the cloud pattern from the SHINE ON DSP.  I just got this specialty designer paper and now I’m wishing I’d bought it much sooner!  It’s so fun to use, the patterns are gorgeous!  This cloud paper is my favorite, I could use a whole pack of just it!

swirly bird

I think that I’ve found a new favorite color combo when making this card…..POOL PARTY and the new PEEKABOO PEACH In color.  Aren’t these just fantastic together??  The kraft cardstock works well with both colors too.  And the little touch of silver with the clouds and sequins makes this card perfect in my eyes!

Swirly Bird by becreativewithnicole.com

I used the SUNBURST THINLIT cut down to make a sun shape with one of the swirly stamps from SWIRLY BIRD in the center.  I went a little overboard with the small swirly stamp and created a background on the Pool Party card base.  I peppered some small stars on there as well from BALLOON CELEBRATION.  But the icing on the cake for me is the sentiment from SUNBURST SAYINGS.  I love the contrast of the white embossing on black cardstock against all the lighter colors.

As you can tell, I am having lots of fun with all the NEW goodies I just got in my New Catalog pre-order.  In fact, my card set for the MAY MINI SESSION from Create with Connie and Mary is complete and written up……I can’t wait for you to see it!  I have lots more to come to be sure to check back for the sneak peek I have coming up for the May Mini Session.
