Color Fusers Blog Hop: February 2017

Welcome to the February 2017 Color Fusers Blog Hop!  Each month we work with a group of colors to bring you inspiration.  Check out the fabulous colors we have to work with this month.

CFBlog Hop Feb 2017

We only have to use three of the colors, but I love the challenge of using all four!  I was able to pull it off using the fun COOL TREATS bundle from the Occasions Catalog.

It ended up being quite easy to incorporate all the colors with this stamp set.  It all started with the Peekaboo Peach paper from the TASTY TREATS Specialty DSP.  It provided a wonderful background to work with.

Lots of details went into the rest of the card.  A fun sundae was placed in a set of circles and surrounded by the sentiment.  I love how the sentiment circles around the focal point.  It’s a unique way to do a greeting for sure!  I had originally placed the words in a zig zag pattern but really loved it when I thought to put it along the top and bottom.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this COOL TREATS idea!  It was so much fun to create for you!  Now it’s time to move on to all of the other Design Team members blogs and check out their amazing creations!

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.

August Color Fuse

I went with my favorite style of the moment, CLEAN AND SIMPLE!  A perfect stamp to do this with is the new SUNSHINE SAYINGS.

sunshine sayings

I used the coordinating thinlits to create a clean look in just 10 minutes!

Sunshine Sayings becreativewithnicole.com

Love the whimsical look of these thinlits!  I went with Smokey Slate for my card base to the Watermelon Wonder heart and Cherry Cobbler sentiment would pop against it.  Extra stamping was required to complete the sentiment.  I added in “& hugs” below with Basic Gray Archival Ink and embossed “sending” in white to add above.  I love the different textures and colors combined together….very fun!

Sunshine Sayings becreativewithnicole

Give this wonderful color combination a try, it’s a keeper!  Below is a list of all the Design Team members so you can visit each of them for more inspiration.  Thanks so much for hopping with us today and exploring the power of color!

August Color Fuse

For my card, I held out and waited for my latest order to arrive before starting.  You’ll see why when I show you the gorgeous card made with the new THOUGHTFUL BRANCHES BUNDLE that will be available for you to order starting TOMORROW!

Thoughtful Branches Bundle Info

This is such a gorgeous stamp set and coordinating die cuts.  I have so many ideas floating around in my head and not enough time to try them all!  For starters, here’s a clean and simple idea with our three gorgeous colors for August.

Thoughtful Branches becreativewithnicole.com

Isn’t this just wonderful!  The die cuts are just amazing, love that you can make a tree and a flower with one die cut!

Thoughtful Branches

I stamped Cherry Cobbler on Watermelon Wonder then die cut the flower.  I added another layer of color underneath with a flower die cut in Cherry Cobbler.  I love these two colors together…it’s a combination I would have ever tried with this set if it hadn’t been for this challenge!  I added in a Smokey Slate stem and leaves…who needs green when you have this fabulous color and a bit of WINK OF STELLA.  Yes, I finally broke down and ordered WINK OF STELLA and now I understand what all the hype is about!  It’s so much more amazing in person…adds a beautiful shimmer to anything you want!

Thoughtful Branches Card becreativewithnicole.com

Now that you’ve seen how wonderful this bundle is, don’t wait!  You can order starting tomorrow and I have a feeling these will not last the entire month of August.  It is a WHILE SUPPLIES LAST offer, so make sure you take advantage of the deal and get this amazing bundle!

Color Fusers Blog Hop: July 2016 – Part 2

Welcome to the 2nd COLOR FUSE BLOG HOP!  Twice a month on the first and third Monday’s we’ll be bringing you inspiration through color!  July’s hops will feature three gorgeous In Colors.

Color Fuse July Logo

I almost went with a floral card, but I wanted to try using these colors in a different way.

Balloon Celebration by becreativewithnicole.com

I haven’t used BALLOON CELEBRATION much and it was calling out to me, so I gave it a try in a clean and simple way.

Balloon Celebration becreativewithnicole

I used bold black and white striped paper for a pop against the Peekaboo Peach card base.  The balloons are done with Flirty Flamingo with the black outline making them stand out nicely.  My favorite little detail though, is the pop of Cucumber Crush in the sentiment.  I love that unexpected bit of color at the end.

I hope you enjoyed this unusual idea with the color combo for July.  These three gorgeous colors are must haves to work with!  Are you ready for more inspiration??  Let’s move on to the rest of the Color Fusers Design Team and see what awesomeness they have for us today!  Just follow the links below and enjoy all the inspiration!

Color Fuse Blog Hop: July 2016 – Part 1

Color Fuse July

I am hooked on making little pouches with the ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD so I thought it would be fun to make one for today.

Banners for You becreativewithnicole.com

This sweet little card was created from a little bit of this and a little bit of that!  My inspiration came from the BANNERS FOR YOU Bundle.   I really love the banners, so useful in so many ways!  It made a great focal point and sentiment for the center of my envelope pouch.

Banners For You Card becreativewithnicole.com

I did a breakdown of all the products used in the picture above, these are all favorites of mine!  Like I’ve said before, I use all Stampin’ Up! products because of the cohesion.  All the colors, stamps and accessories all blend beautifully together.

Banners for YOu by becreativewithnicole.com

Let’s go back to the pouch for a second.  It’s just like the one I shared HERE that was a seed packet holder.  I used KRAFT CARDSTOCK  measuring 6″ x 6″ and followed the directions on the ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD scoring and punching beginning on the 3″ line.  The card insert measures in at 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″.  I added a bit of the fun new Ruched Ribbon in Flirty Flamingo to pull the card from the pouch.

Banners for You becreativewithnicole.com

I hope you enjoyed today’s bit of inspiration!  This ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD pouch can be turned into anything you like!  Just sit down with some of your favorite products and let the creativity begin!  Speaking of creativity, let’s move on to the rest of the Color Fuse Design Team and see what awesomeness they have for us today!  Just follow the links below and enjoy all the inspiration!
