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!

Suite Seasons plus an Announcement!

With the holidays fast approaching, I have been looking for ways to make simple yet beautiful cards.  Today I let the Designer Series Paper do all the work.

suite-seasons-becreativewithnicole-com

I didn’t originally intend for the card to be so simple, but I loved the look of this sentiment stamped on the designer paper.

suite-seasons

I die cut pine needles and pine cones then even pulled out sequins, but it all seemed to be over done.  I tried out each item with the card and it just didn’t fit.  Goes to show that sometimes just some simple stamping and beautiful paper is enough!  This would be a great design to mass produce if you needed cards at the last minute.

suite-seasons-becreativewithnicole-com

OK….how about that announcement that I mentioned in the title.  There is something exciting going on over at CREATE WITH CONNIE AND MARY!!  Head on over to find out what the excitement is all about…..I know you’ll love it…..we are bringing back a great treat!!

Song Inspired

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week our theme is INSPIRED BY A CHRISTMAS SONG.

ccmwinterwelcome

One of the first songs to pop into my mind was “Let is Snow” since it’s a favorite of mine.

santas-sleigh-becreativewithnicole-com

To mimic snow in a different way, I used the silver polka dots designer acetate.  Love silver at this time of year….it’s so joyful and festive!

santas-sleigh

To keep the silver theme going, I added a silver glimmer reindeer.  He’s very majestic, don’t you think!!

santas-sleigh-becreativewithnicole-com

I also went with a bold sentiment and heat embossed “Let it Snow” in white on Basic Black cardstock since it’s the song that inspired all of this.  And of course since I love sequins, I had to add in a few of the Fancy Frost sequins.  They were the perfect finishing touch!!

SUPPLIES:

STAMPS:  Santa’s Sleigh, Labeler Alphabet

INKS:  Versa Mark

PAPER:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Silver Glimmer, Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate

ACCESSORIES:   Santa’s Sleigh Thinlit Dies, Fancy Frost Sequins, Stampin’ Trimmer, Paper Snips, Bone Folder, Mini Glue Dots,  Dimensionals
