Red and White Plus 1

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week our theme is RED & WHITE PLUS 1.

I created a Valentine for my husband with the new NAILED IT Bundle.  He is a general contractor, so this was just perfect!

Nailed It becreativewithnicole.com

For my plus 1 color, I used Silver Foil paper on the saw.  The rest of the card is pretty clean and simple so the cut out saw would really stand out.

Love is in the Air

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

I went with the obvious choice and used LIFT ME UP for my card today.  It’s a simple design which is my favorite lately!

Lift Me Up becreativewithnicole.com

I thought about doing this on watercolor paper and adding a wash of blue for the sky, but instead I went with the WATERCOLOR WASH background stamp.  This is one of my favorite backgrounds ever made and it was perfect for this card.

Lift Me up

I added the sentiment in Dapper Denim, it’s a nice complimentary color to Soft Sky.  The balloon was a combination of Flirty Flamingo and Watermelon Wonder.  The pink balloon stand out nicely against the blue sky and white clouds.

SUPPLIES:

STAMPS:  Lift Me Up, Watercolor Wash Background

INKS:  Soft Sky, Dapper Denim, Watermelon Wonder

PAPER:  Whisper White, Flirty Flamingo

ACCESSORIES:   Up & Away Thinlits, Stampin’ Trimmer, Paper Snips, Bone Folder, dimensionals, SNAIL

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

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

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.

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
