Just like with the last sketch challenge, I used this idea to get ready for Mother’s Day.  The stamp set of choice for today is EVERYDAY HERO.

Super Mom becreativewithnicole.com

This is perfect for my Mom, she really is a super hero to me!  She’ll love the bright bold colors and sentiment, a great way to say how awesome she is.

The super mom is colored with watercolor pencils to get the bolder colors.  I added in extra wow factor with the stars from STAR BLAST EDGELITS as a backdrop, love the burst of Daffodil Delight!  And the sentiment is heat embossed in white on the Pacific Point to make it stand out as well.

CCMC455

Love this week’s sketch!!  It took me a bit to pick which set to go with, but eventually decided on PERFECT MIX.

Perfect Mix by becreativewithnicole.com

This set is just too much fun!  Lots of ways to layer the different kitchen items!!  I embossed several of each stamp and played around with the design.

In the end, I liked the way Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral worked together with the neutral tones.  And the best part, I have a bunch of extras for later….BONUS!

Dragonfly Dreams for CCMC454

There are several bundles from the Occasions Catalog that I have yet to work with.  So for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge, I pulled out the DRAGONFLY DREAMS Bundle for my card.  But before I get too far ahead, let’s take a look at the colors we are featuring this week.

CCMC454

Beautiful combination, don’t you think??  I wanted a soft watercolor look to go with DRAGONFLY DREAMS so I paired it up with products from the April My Paper Pumpkin.

Dragonfly Dreams by becreativewithnicole.com

I used the card base and one of the watercolor papers from the kit.  Everything else was from my regular stash of products.

Dragonfly Dreams becreativewithnicole.com

The water coloring shows off all three of our colors this week.  I used my aqua painter and ink pads to create the look.  I also added color to the rest of the background, a little bit of Island Indigo.  I used that same color for the dragonfly die cuts and added a bit of Wink of Stella to each to make them sparkle.

Dragonfly Dreams

The inside of the card had to be embellished as well.  The stamps from the kit along with the washi tape worked out beautifully.  The Mother’s Day sentiment on the front of the card was pulled from Oh So Succulent, I thought it was a wonderful greeting to go along with the MPP stamps.  Nice to get a head start on Mother’s Day this year!

Cool Treats for CCMC452

I’ve been on a break for the last two months, but I’m starting to post cards again since I love stamping so much!  I’ve teamed up again with Create with Connie and Mary for the challenges they do on Thursdays and this week we have a beautiful color challenge.

CCMC452

So Saffron, Peek-a-boo Peach and Sahara Sand are gorgeous together, especially with spring starting.  I went with COOL TREATS and created a yummy orange creamsicle card.

Cool Treats becreativewithnicole.com

Peek-a-boo Peach is such a delicious color for COOL TREATS ice cream cones.  All of my family love orange creamsicle ice cream so this color combination was an easy one to work with.

Tasty Treats

I created a melted ice cream background using watercolor paper and an aqua painter with the Peek-a-boo Peach ink pad.  A few die cut sprinkles add some fun and we all know I love sprinkles and confetti!  Lastly, the sentiment was stamped on slender banners to layer below the ice cream.
