Inspiring New Cling Stamps!

The new Occasions Catalog not only brings amazing products to create with, but an easier way to do it!!  It’s the new CLING STAMPS that make stamping with red rubber easier!  All of the clear block rubber stamps that I’ve gotten over the last few years have never had the stickers added.  I found that the stickers kept the stamps from staying on the clear block.  Well those days are over!  Stampin’ Up! has introduced new CLING STAMPS that stay on the block with the stickers on!  They have started out with quite a few of the new stamps having this cling sticker and I am super excited about it.  I tried out one of the stamps and have a card and tip to share with you.

 This card uses the Sale-a-Bration set called PART OF MY STORY.   I loved the sentiments in this set immediately, very sweet and very useful!  With this set having the new cling stickers, I thought I’d show you how I use mine.  The stickers are quite tacky, so getting them off the block without damage is paramount.  So, here is the trick I use.

As you can see, the stamp set on the left side of the picture shows a little bit of washi tape on the edge of each stamp.  The stamp can cling to the clear block and the washi gives you a little place to easily take hold of the stamp and peel it off.  I was able to stamp and clean the stamp easily without any movement on the block.  This really works!

The image stamped beautifully, nice and crisp!  The card also features All My Love DSP, the awesome Tufted Embossing Folder and the tiny flowers from the Well Written Framelits.  I love to mix and match with different stamps sets, die cuts and designer paper.  As always Stampin’ Up! makes it easy to coordinate and create beautiful projects.

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!

STAMPS:  It’s a Celebration, Labeler Alphabet

Marquee Messages becreativewithnicole.com

Isn’t this a fun and bold card!  Lots pink and a bit of bling too!

Marquee Messages by becreativewithnicole

This set is perfect with the new designer paper called POP OF PINK.  Lots of bold and sassy designs give you tons of options!  I used a fun black and white pattern with Melon Mambo paper and ink.  There is also a great set of washi tape that coordinates called POP OF PINK DESIGNER WASHI.  I added in the pink striped design of the washi for a nice little contrast.

Marquee Messages

Did you notice all the bling??  The marquee sign is glammed up with lots of RHINESTONES!  The small ones are just the right size.  I also added SILVER FOIL for the starburst on the sides of the sentiment.  Just another small way to take it up a notch!

Birthday Blooms for #GDP028

Happy Easter!  Today I have a really quick share for you.  I have one more card for this week’s challenge from the Global Design Project.  I used my favorite stamp set BIRTHDAY BLOOMS.

Birthday Blooms #GDP028 becreativewithnicole

I had already made a card for the challenge using Picture Perfect, but I needed inspiration for a birthday card.  So this challenge was the perfect motivation for me!  I have made tons of cards with BIRTHDAY BLOOMS for the Luv2Stamp Group.  As I am nearing the end of my list of birthdays, I am seriously running out of ideas!  One look at the layout of this week’s challenge and I knew exactly what I wanted to make!

GDP028 Jess Williams CASE

I used a similar layout and color palette.  But this time I used washi tape as one of my design elements.

I love the bold black and white stripes with Calypso Coral!  I used alcohol markers to color the flowers then added a birthday sentiment.

I just love how the coral pops with the bit of black and the soft Sahara Sand card base.  This turned out better than I expected…love when that happens!!
