Foxy Friends

I am so loving the fun and sweet stamp set FOXY FRIENDS.  Not only does it have cute little critters that you can stamp, but there is a coordinating PUNCH!  I actually used this fun bundle for my 3D project for the JULY MINI SESSION from Create with Connie and Mary.  It’s so stinkin’ cute, I just love it!  I hope you’ll join us for this month’s session, we have 5 full tutorials for you with all new stamps!  Click HERE to find out more and subscribe!

Now, how about a cute birthday card idea with this set??

Foxy Friends becreativwithnicole.com

So fun, right??!!  It was easy to put together since there is also a coordinating designer paper!  And this A LITTLE FOXY Designer Series Paper is so cute you really need to get all three products to create with.

Foxy Friends by becreativewithnicole

I added in a couple of different greetings to make this work.  The first is the die cut “happy” from HELLO YOU THINLITS.  I used Basic Gray cardstock for the die cut so it would stand out against the polka dot paper.  The fun little banner was a sentiment from the hostess set TIME OF YEAR.  I love that the banners in this set coordinate with the BUNCH OF BANNERS Framelits. It’s nice to have a crisp clean look without any fussy cutting!

As always the envelope coordinates.  I also stamped the inside so this card is ready to go for the next birthday.

Annual Catalog International Blog Hop

June International Blog Hop

Welcome to the Annual Catalog International Blog Hop!  I feel so privileged to be included in such a talented group of stampers!  You may be coming from Sylvia’s fabulous blog or just starting out here in the USA.  Either way, enjoy yourself as you visit bloggers from all over the globe.  We have lots of amazing ideas for you featuring NEW products!  So sit back and have fun traveling along with us today!

Foxy Friends by becreativewithnicole.com

I sat down with a super fun new bundle and had oodles of fun!  FOXY FRIENDS is a mix and match type of stamp set, you have tons of ways to use it!  To make it even cooler there is a coordinating punch!

Foxy FriendsI did several cards, two of which showcase the coordinating designer paper stack called A LITTLE FOXY.

Foxy Friends becreativewithnicole

My favorite of the three is a penny slider card that couldn’t be more fun!  I designed this one first….by accident!  I had been working on slider cards with the SHOOTING STAR bundle and thought it would be fun to do a FOXY FRIENDS slider too.  The SLIDING STAR FRAMELITS make the process SUPER EASY!  After the slider portion was ready, I stamped a cute skunk and added a few final details.

Foxy Friends

The second card was quite quick and is perfect for giving a little note to someone special.  It’s only 3″x3″ so it would be perfect for using up scraps of designer paper and cardstock.  This time the critter I created was a cute little racoon.  He’s holding a heart to coordinate with the sentiment that I used from last month’s My Paper Pumpkin.

Foxy Friends becreativewithnicole.com

And last but not least, a cute little fox in the forest.  A Soft Sky card base measuring 3″x 6″ forms the background for the scene.  Mint Macaroon grass and trees give the fox a place to hang out.  I went back and forth about the sentiment and finally decided on birthday.  I used the sweet birthday greeting from BALLOON CELEBRATION because of the lovely handwritten script.  It’s delicate and beautiful and stamped in black is a nice contrast to the lighter colors.

So, now you have three new ideas for using this fantastic new FOXY FRIENDS BUNDLE!  How about more ideas????  Well, check out the list below and visit all the blogs to see the amazing ideas to be had!  Thanks for visiting, have fun hopping around!

Flirty Flamingo

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This month we are featuring the NEW IN COLORS!!  FLIRTY FLAMINGO is this week’s color which is quickly becoming a favorite!

I used the new BIGGEST BIRTHDAY EVER Bundle for my card and I have to tell you…..this bundle is TOO.MUCH.FUN!

Biggest Birthday Ever becreativewithnicole

There are endless possibilities for the slice of cake and all the accessories!

Biggest Birthday Ever by becreativewithnicole.com

To showcase FLIRTY FLAMINGO, I kept the colors simple by adding just black and white.  The strips of designer paper along the sides are from the POP OF PINK Specialty DSP.  The stripes add a nice bold touch to the card and makes the pink stand out even more!  The cake itself is all FLIRTY FLAMINGO.  The cute polka dot layers are stamped after the cake was added to the card.  It was easy peasy to line up since the stamps are photopolymer!   The one thing this set doesn’t have it sentiments.  So, I used a nice bold greeting from CONFETTI CELEBRATION. It gave the celebratory look I was going for.  After a few sprinkles (more like a lot!) and sequins the card was done!

Now, let’s get to the good stuff, the supply list so you can make your own BIGGEST BIRTHDAY EVER card.

SUPPLIES:

STAMPS:   Biggest Birthday Ever, Confetti Celebration

INKS: Flirty Flamingo, Archival Black

PAPER: Whisper White, Flirty Flamingo, Basic Black, Pop of Pink Specialty DSP

ACCESSORIES:  Wish Big Framelits, Silver Sequin Trim, Paper Snips, Stampin’ Trimmer, bone folder, SNAIL, Fine Tip Glue Pen

Guess what time it is??  Time for the JUNE MINI SESSION from Create with Connie and Mary!  Yep, we’ve been hard at work putting together tutorials for you with NEW STAMPS!!  Woo Hoo….new stamps, new ideas…what’s not to love!  How about a sneak peek…love sneak peeks!

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!

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

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.
