Ring in the New

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week our theme is RING IN THE NEW.

Hard to believe that 2016 is ending!  This year has flown by and been quite a whirlwind!  To welcome in 2017, I used IT’S A CELEBRATION from the Holiday Catalog.

its-a-celebration-becreativewithnicole-com

I added a pop of pink after being inspired by the POP OF PINK DSP and WASHI TAPE.  To bring in the pink I went with a Melon Mambo card base and added in a bit of embossing to add extra pizazz.  The sparkler is heat embossed in black then the “sparkle” is embossed over top in silver.  A couple of sequins from the FANCY FROST SEQUINS and a little WASHI TAPE and the card is all set!

My supply list is below so you can give this a try!

SUPPLIES:

STAMPS:  It’s a Celebration, Labeler Alphabet

INKS:  Versa Mark

PAPER:  Whisper White, Melon Mambo

ACCESSORIES:   Pop of Pink Designer Washi Tape, Fancy Frost Sequins, Embossing Buddy, Silver Embossing Powder, Black embossing powder, Heat tool,  Stampin’ Trimmer, Paper Snips, Bone Folder, SNAIL, Mini Glue Dots

Christmas Pines

Another quick and easy Christmas card for today!  I’m using CHRISTMAS PINES again and featuring the PINE BOUGH EMBOSSING FOLDER with PRESENTS AND PINECONES DSP.

christmas-pines-becreativewithnicole-com

While this is an easy card to make, it still is quite beautiful!  The embossed pine needles really make this card stand out.  I even added a little shimmer to them by using WINK OF STELLA.

And the designer paper is a perfect match!  The small pinecones and pine branches are a compliment to the card design.

Suite Seasons plus an Announcement!

With the holidays fast approaching, I have been looking for ways to make simple yet beautiful cards.  Today I let the Designer Series Paper do all the work.

suite-seasons-becreativewithnicole-com

I didn’t originally intend for the card to be so simple, but I loved the look of this sentiment stamped on the designer paper.

suite-seasons

I die cut pine needles and pine cones then even pulled out sequins, but it all seemed to be over done.  I tried out each item with the card and it just didn’t fit.  Goes to show that sometimes just some simple stamping and beautiful paper is enough!  This would be a great design to mass produce if you needed cards at the last minute.

suite-seasons-becreativewithnicole-com

OK….how about that announcement that I mentioned in the title.  There is something exciting going on over at CREATE WITH CONNIE AND MARY!!  Head on over to find out what the excitement is all about…..I know you’ll love it…..we are bringing back a great treat!!

Song Inspired

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week our theme is INSPIRED BY A CHRISTMAS SONG.

ccmwinterwelcome

One of the first songs to pop into my mind was “Let is Snow” since it’s a favorite of mine.

santas-sleigh-becreativewithnicole-com

To mimic snow in a different way, I used the silver polka dots designer acetate.  Love silver at this time of year….it’s so joyful and festive!

santas-sleigh

To keep the silver theme going, I added a silver glimmer reindeer.  He’s very majestic, don’t you think!!

santas-sleigh-becreativewithnicole-com

I also went with a bold sentiment and heat embossed “Let it Snow” in white on Basic Black cardstock since it’s the song that inspired all of this.  And of course since I love sequins, I had to add in a few of the Fancy Frost sequins.  They were the perfect finishing touch!!

SUPPLIES:

STAMPS:  Santa’s Sleigh, Labeler Alphabet

INKS:  Versa Mark

PAPER:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Silver Glimmer, Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate

ACCESSORIES:   Santa’s Sleigh Thinlit Dies, Fancy Frost Sequins, Stampin’ Trimmer, Paper Snips, Bone Folder, Mini Glue Dots,  Dimensionals

Non Traditional Christmas Colors

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week our theme is NON TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS COLORS.

ccmfall3

I went with my favorite bokeh technique to create a beautiful sparkly card with SANTA’S SLEIGH.

santas-sleigh-becreativewithnicole-com

The softness of the Flirty Flamingo and Whisper White craft ink create a lovely background for the sparkly silver glimmer reindeer.

santas-sleigh

I added a punch of color with a Tempting Turquoise wreath and the sentiment embossed in black.  The sentiment was actually taken from CHRISTMAS PINES.  I liked the font and the size of the sentiment complimented the reindeer.

Sparkly Reindeer

I’ve gone clean and simple today with the beautiful SANTA’S SLEIGH BUNDLE.

santas-sleigh-becreativewithnicole-com

I love white on white for the card base and top layer.  The gold glimmer reindeer really stands out and sparkles this way!  I added embossing for more interest and dimension.  The PINE BOUGH Embossing Folder is just perfect for a clean and simple look in white.

santas-sleigh

Adding in a sentiment with EMERALD ENVY gives just a hint of color and really pops on this card.  This has been my color of choice so far for Christmas, I just love it!

santas-sleigh-becreativewithnicole-com
