tasty-trucks-becreativewithnicole-com

Isn’t this just too much fun!  I saw this cute truck and had to have it!

tasty-trucks

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.

Custom Tee

It’s finally here……the NEW OCCASIONS CATALOG and SALE-A-BRATION!!!  This is the best time of the year!  Who doesn’t love NEW stamps and even better……FREE stamps!!

I made a fun card to celebrate using the new CUSTOM TEE stamp set.

custom-tee-becreativewithnicole-com

Isn’t this perfect!!  I am one HAPPY STAMPER…..LOL!

custom-tee

The layering of color behind the circle is from the TASTY TREATS Designer Series Paper.  It’s meant to coordinate with COOL TREATS, but I love the colors so I used it for this card.

The tee shirt is pretty simple yet has a lot of depth.  I simply stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink then added my sentiment with Watermelon Wonder.  The depth comes in from the shading I did with the NEW WATERCOLOR PENCILS.  I added a little color around the edges of the tee shirt with the Calypso Coral pencil and a little blue around the outside with Pacific Point.  A little coloring goes a long way, especially with the blue.  A little bit of versa marker to smooth things out gave me a gorgeous tee shirt!

I have something else to be excited about……..the JANUARY MINI SESSION from Create with Connie and Mary is on it’s way!!

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

All that Glitters

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week our theme is ALL THAT GLITTERS.

I went with a very unusual card for this one, I wanted to be totally different!  Check it out……..

shooting-star-christmas-becreativewithnicole-com

Not your usual Christmas card, right??  Well, I was in the mood to make a movement card so I thought about how I could incorporate the slider card dies into my card.  PEACE ON EARTH was the answer!  The earth in the SHOOTING STAR fit the bill.

shooting-star-christmas

The card base was done in black so the silver foil paper would really stand out.  I added in silver glimmer paper and silver embossing as well.  There is even shimmer on the earth that was added with the clear WINK OF STELLA.

Christmas Pines

Another quick and easy Christmas card for today!  I’m using CHRISTMAS PINES again and featuring the PINE BOUGH EMBOSSING FOLDER with PRESENTS AND PINECONES DSP.

christmas-pines-becreativewithnicole-com

While this is an easy card to make, it still is quite beautiful!  The embossed pine needles really make this card stand out.  I even added a little shimmer to them by using WINK OF STELLA.

And the designer paper is a perfect match!  The small pinecones and pine branches are a compliment to the card design.

tasty-truck-by-becreativewithnicole-com

Isn’t this sweet!!!!  It’s one of the new Sale-a-bration stamp sets coming up in January.  I just had to break out the truck stamp and use it for today.  Too cute for words for sure!!!  I stamped the truck on Shimmery White cardstock and colored it in with an aqua painter and ink pads.  I liked the colors coming out a little softer this way instead of the darker color from using markers.tasty-truck

I also added in the fun new DSP from the Occasions catalog called TASTY TREATS.  Lots of fun designs to play with and all of them are done in simply beautiful colors!
