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

Happy Valentine’s Day!!  I have a perfect card to share with you today since love is in the air!  A BALLOON BUILDERS Valentine!

Ballon Builder Valentine becreativewithnicole

This was such a fun and easy Valentine to create!  A quick one layer card that just requires a little sponging and stamping!

Balloon Builders Valentine becreativewithnicole

I stamped soft Blushing Bride heart balloons all over the card then sponged clouds in the background around them.  I wanted light and airy strings so I used the fine tip on my Pool Party marker to draw them in.

Ballon Builder Valentine becreativewithnicole

See…I told you this was a quick one!  If you still have a couple of last minute Valentine’s to make this one is the way to go!  Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!!

Beautiful Ride Valentine

I’m going to take a break today from Birthday Blooms and share a Valentine I made for the Creative Crew on Splitcoaststampers.

Beautiful Ride Valentine becreativewithnicole

Isn’t this fun!  I combined the cute couple from BEAUTIFUL RIDE with HELLO LIFE and the gorgeous HAVE A CUPPA designer paper.

Beautiful Ride Valentine

This was SO easy to put together.  A couple strips of designer paper and a little stamping is all it took.  I cut out a couple of the hearts from the dsp to scatter over the card and added a sequin or two.

Valentines

Creation Station header

Welcome to the CREATION STATION BLOG HOP!  This month we are all about VALENTINES!! The big day is less than two weeks away so you’ve come to the right place.  The blog hop is full of fabulous ideas so make sure you visit all of them!!

I was so excited to order new supplies that I didn’t think about Valentine’s Day being around the corner….so no Valentine sets (sad face).  BUT WAIT!  I know there are others out there that did the same, so I am giving you a couple of Valentines using everyday stamps.

Sky is the Limit becreativewithnicole.com

This first card was so much fun to make!  If you look closely at the background, you can see the bokeh effect which is a favorite technique of mine.  It gives such a lovely soft look that’s perfect for a sky scene.

Soaring becreativewithnicole.com

A couple of vellum clouds added in give more interest without overtaking the plane.  And of course since it’s a Valentine, I had to add some hearts!  This just goes to show you how versatile SKY IS THE LIMIT really is!  The variety of greetings really makes this one a gem and must have!!

sky is the limit becreativewithnicole

Now, how about one that’s clean and simple??  I used a Sale-a-bration set that is another must have…HELLO.

Hello by becreativewithnicole.com

How is that for simple!  I love the giant HELLO in this set, it’s just so darn useful!  I was able to add in another stamp set and create a beautiful Valentine.

hello becreativewithnicole

The swirly “love” from HELLO LIFE fit just right below “hello”.  It turned out just as I pictured it!  A few RED GLIMMER hearts and voila’ a Valentine!

Hello Valentine becreativewithnicole.com

I hope I inspired you to use your everyday stamps for Valentines today!  Now it’s time to move on and see more favorites from the very talented ladies in this group.  Up next is Julie and I can’t wait to see what’s she’s made!  Be sure to hop all the way around, I know you’ll want to see all of the fabulous ideas!

Puppy Love

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week the theme is Love is in the Air….so we are featuring VALENTINES!

I had so many favorites in the new Occasions Catalog that Valentine type sets took a backseat.  So….I made a Valentine with what I had and I think it’s just super cute!

Playful Pals becreativewithnicole.com

Isn’t this Valentine puppy so sweet!  I have always been a big fan of pink and chocolate so those colors jumped into my head right away!

Playful Pal

The puppy’s “fur” is a design from the beautiful LOVE BLOSSOMS Designer Paper Stack on page 17.  It’s intended to coordinate with the Bloomin’ Love Bundle, but the paper is so beautiful it can be used with just about anything!  This particular design was simply perfect for my pink and chocolate puppy!

Playful Pals by becreativewithnicole.com

I brought in pink with the sponged hearts created with a decorative mask.  They give a nice subtle background and a real Valentine feel to the card.  My biggest dilemma with not getting a Valentine set was what sentiment to use.  But that ended up being an easy thing to solve!  I looked through my stamps and found the wonderful sentiment “Love You” in the versatile set FRIENDLY WISHES in the main catalog.

This turned out so sweet, it’s just another great reason to get the PLAYFUL PALS Bundle…very versatile!

Now for the nitty gritty….the SUPPLY LIST!

SUPPLIES:

STAMPS: Playful Pals, Friendly Wishes

INKS:  Chocolate Chip, Blushing Bride

PAPER:  Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride, Love Blossoms DSP Stack

ACCESSORIES:  Pyramid Pals Thinlits, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Hearts and Stars Decorative Masks, Stampin’ Sponges, Pearls, dimensionals, SNAIL, paper snips, paper trimmer

Just for You

I have a fun little treat for you today featuring another Sale-a-bration set.  This is another must have stamp set, it has so many uses!

just for you becreativewithnicole.com

I whipped up a little treat for Valentine’s Day or any other occasion you want.  It just requires a cupcake liner, a gusseted bag and some candy.  All these items were handy in my kitchen so I had this put together in no time.

Just for you tag becreativewithnicole.com

To decorate by treat bag, I used the new Sale-a-bration set BOTANICALS FOR YOU.  I love this big, bold greeting!  Just stamp and die cut a tag…easy peasy!

Valentine gift becreativewithnicole

Once all the candy was in the bag and the tag was done, I simply tied the bag shut with the lovely Watermelon Dotted Lace Trim.  One thing extra I did add inside the bag was a few hearts for a confetti effect.  I also added a few to the outside of the bag with a couple of dimensionals.  I love the extra bit of color!

just for you becreativewithnicole.com
