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.

The background is a bunch of tacos which were colored with watercolor pencils and a versa marker.  The truck is popped up on dimensionals on top along with a fun sombrero that I cut out of the Festive Birthday papers.  The truck is done with watercolor pencils as well.  I love how nicely they color!!!  They are a real must have from the NEW Occasions Catalog!

Oh So Succulent

Along with everyone else, I am in love with SUCCULENTS!  And Stampin’ Up! is right in line with the trends by bringing us the fabulous OH SO SUCCULENT Bundle in the new Occasions Catalog.

oh-so-succulent

This gorgeous bundle is perfect for cards and 3D items as well, a dream come true!!  My first card has been inspired by the sketch challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary.

ccm439

I love this sketch and thought the succulents bundle was a perfect fit!

oh-so-succulent-becreativewithnicole-com

I actually combined several stamp sets to create this card.  As I’ve said before, Stampin’ Up! sets coordinate beautifully!!!  I pulled the small mason jar from JAR OF LOVE.  I love having the succulents in a cute little container.  Plus this supplied one of the elements of the card sketch.  Next, the succulents came from OH SO SUCCULENT.  Each one has an outline stamp and a solid stamp to add color and dimension.  And finally, the sentiment is from LIVE,LOVE,GROW.

oh-so-succulent

Did you notice the gorgeous designer paper??  It coordinates with the Succulent bundle, it’s called Succulent Garden.  It’s full of beautiful designs and soft colors.  I pulled my color inspiration from it.  Definitely a must have is you are getting the OH SO SUCCULENT Bundle.

Creation Station header

Welcome to the Creation Station Blog Hop for October!  This month we are sharing Halloween projects and cards.  We have tons of ideas to share, so be sure to hop all the way around to see what everyone has created!

mini-treat-bags-becreativewithnincole-comI combined several products for my half size Mini Treat Bags, love how everything works together so well!

cookie-cutter-skeleton-becreativewithnicole-com

Half size mini treat bags are super fun to make and prefect party favors!  I kept my designs fairly simple so you could use these ideas and make them in multiples for your parties this year.

cookie-cutter-mummy-becreativewithnicole-com

Using COOKIE CUTTER HALLOWEEN and the coordinating COOKIE CUTTER BUILDER PUNCH make this something that would be simple to crank out a bunch of in a short amount of time.  I kept the stamping simple by choosing the characters that only needed black ink.  Just stamp and punch!

spooky-fun-ghosts-becreativewithnicole-com

Make your treats quickly by doing all of your steps assembly line style.  If you want to make several of one design, cut all your paper and assemble the mini treat bags then doing all your stamping to complete the treat.

spooky-fun-witch-becreativewithnicole-com

Let your Designer Series Paper do the work for you!  I didn’t have to do anything extra for my backgrounds, the fabulous HALLOWEEN NIGHTS DSP did the work for me!  I just added die cuts and bling!

mini-treat-bags-becreativewithnincole-com

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 with Cake

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.

Foxy Friends by becreativewithnicole.com

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!
