Kid’s Birthday

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week our theme is KID’S BIRTHDAY.

My little guy is turning 4 soon so I did a fun little CUSTOM TEE card for his birthday.

Custom Tee by becreativewithnicole.com

I love the simplicity of this card!  The sentiment was done with three coordinating shades of blue…Soft Sky, Marina Mist and Dapper Denim.

The shirt itself is done with Marina Mist ink and cardstock.  I could have added more, but I think this clean and crisp design is perfect as it is.  Change up the sentiment and colors for just about any occasion!

SUPPLIES:

STAMPS:  Custom Tee

INKS:  Marina Mist, Soft Sky, Dapper Denim

PAPER:  Whisper White, Marina Mist

ACCESSORIES:   Stampin’ Trimmer, Paper Snips, Bone Folder, dimensionals

Masculine Birthday

I was inspired by the stamp with the bow tie.  I thought it’s perfect for an elegant masculine black tie cake.  This is great for any man in your life!  I love the simplicity, this is something you could make several of and keep for those occasions where you need a card at the last minute.

Here’ a quick list of supplies!

Birthday Celebration

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week our theme is BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!

I got to use a set for today that I think is super cute and has so many variation possibilities…..CAKE CRAZY.

Cake Crazy becreativewithnicole.com

I wanted the card to be bold and bright, so I took color inspiration from FESTIVE BIRTHDAYS DSP. 

Cake Crazy

I added in a little bling for sparkle and love the boost it gives the card.  The colors are gorgeous, but the rhinestones give that little extra something.  Definitely a fun birthday card to brighten up someone’s day.

Color Fusers Blog Hop: September 2016 – Part 1

Welcome to the first week of the September COLOR FUSE BLOG HOP!  Twice a month on the first and third Monday’s we’ll be bringing you inspiration through color!  September’s hops will feature four gorgeous colors.

color fusers sept 2016

I picked a stamp set you may not have thought of for this set of colors.

Live Love Grow Mini Treat Bag becreativewithnicole.com

LIVE, LOVE, GROW is a favorite of mine!  I just love the sweet succulents and sentiments.  I know you would typically think of this set being in neutrals and greens, but I love the idea of throwing in a Sweet Sugarplum succulent along with the Mint Macaron plants.

Live Love Grow becreativewithnicole.com

To make this a beautiful but functional card, I added a birthday greeting inside along with a couple more succulents.

Live Love Grow

Let’s delve into the nitty gritty and talk about how all the colors from the challenge were used.  Obviously I love SWEET SUGARPLUM, I used it for the card base and one of the succulent plants.  It’s a great light purple that reminds me of the old Pale Plum that Stampin’ Up! had years ago when I first started stamping.  MINT MACARON comes into play with the other plants.  This pale green is such a lovely color and is a great stand out against the plum.  I added in the other two colors as accents.  FLIRTY FLAMINGO is used only with the ribbon for the inside card and the die cut “love” in my sentiment.  It works really well with the card and really adds that little bit of contrast that was needed.  Lastly, RICH RAZZLEBERRY was used with the small flowers on the largest plant.  I used the TREE BUILDER PUNCH to get the tiny flower that would work with the size plants in my terrarium.

Live Love Grow inside card

The inside is embellished a little with the lovely plants and a fun birthday greeting that is a combination of SUNSHINE SAYINGS and LIVE,LOVE,GROW.

Live Love Grow becreativewithnicole.com

If you haven’t tried these MINI TREAT BAG cards, I highly encourage you to!  They are a bit smaller than a typical card so even though they are more 3D, they still fit into the Stampin’ Up! envelopes.  It’s a great way to step up you card making for the WOW factor.  If you’d like to give this style of card a try, check out the supply list below and click on any of the items you would like to order or know more about.

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 Hat

I love things that shimmer and today’s card is chock full of it!  I pulled out the June My Paper Pumpkin kit again last night and created a birthday card with the contents.  This time the card showcases the kit and how fun it is to work with.

Paper Pumpkin June 2016 becreativewithnicole

Instead of a banner, I made a party hat with a cello triangle.  Can I just tell you how much I LOVE the sequins from this kit??  Actually, I really love all the contents of this kit and I haven’t tried them all!  There are still gold letters that I haven’t even touched yet!

June 2016 MPP

The whole thing was easy to put together.  But let me give you a tip.  I decided to emboss the sentiment in gold at the last minute so it would coordinate with the card better.  Well, the problem was I had already put the cello hat on.  When I heat embossed the heat from the heat gun started to melt the cello a bit at the top despite my efforts not to!  So if you want to make this card, emboss first, then add the hat!  The hat was quite simple to make.  Just pour in a bunch of sequins then seal the triangle shut with the washi tape from the kit.  Once that was done, I cut a piece of gold shimmer paper with fringe scissors and added it the the bottom with tear tape to give the hat sparkle.  When attaching the hat to the card, I only used tear tape at the bottom where the glimmer paper can hide it and at the top over and under the bit of fringe.  Even though that’s not much adhesive, the hat stays in place nicely.

Paper Pumpkin June 2016 becreativewithnicole

I hope you will give this card a try, so much fun to make!  I still have a few more ideas for the June kit, so be sure to come back and see what I’ve come up with.
