Color Fusers Blog Hop: February 2017

Welcome to the February 2017 Color Fusers Blog Hop!  Each month we work with a group of colors to bring you inspiration.  Check out the fabulous colors we have to work with this month.

CFBlog Hop Feb 2017

We only have to use three of the colors, but I love the challenge of using all four!  I was able to pull it off using the fun COOL TREATS bundle from the Occasions Catalog.

It ended up being quite easy to incorporate all the colors with this stamp set.  It all started with the Peekaboo Peach paper from the TASTY TREATS Specialty DSP.  It provided a wonderful background to work with.

Lots of details went into the rest of the card.  A fun sundae was placed in a set of circles and surrounded by the sentiment.  I love how the sentiment circles around the focal point.  It’s a unique way to do a greeting for sure!  I had originally placed the words in a zig zag pattern but really loved it when I thought to put it along the top and bottom.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this COOL TREATS idea!  It was so much fun to create for you!  Now it’s time to move on to all of the other Design Team members blogs and check out their amazing creations!

Lift Me Up

I wanted to make an uplifting card for a friend today, so what better stamp set to use than LIFT ME UP.

lift-me-up-becreativewithnicole-com

There are so many ways to use the beautiful balloon die cuts and stamps!  I ended up using the coordinating Sale-a-bration Freebie CARRIED AWAY DSP as inspiration.  The colors are beautiful and bright so it was easy to to come up with something.

Did you know that I used this stamp set for the JANUARY MINI SESSION from Create with Connie and Mary??  Yep, this month we have ALL NEW stamps featured in our tutorials!! I did a set of four cards with LIFT ME UP and I love how they turned out!!

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!!

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.

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!!

Christmas Pines

Now that I’m in full out Christmas mode, I am loving the gorgeous for CHRISTMAS PINES BUNDLE.

christmas-pines-becreativewithnicole-com

Add this bundle to the coordinating PRESENTS AND PINECONES DSP and you can’t go wrong!  The colors are so amazing, I can’t get enough of the new In Color EMERALD ENVY.  It’s absolutely the perfect green for Christmas!

christmas-pines

I also used one of the new embossing folders, PINE BOUGH.  It creates a beautiful background without a lot of work.  It looks fabulous behind my sentiment without any extra bells and whistles.  The only thing I added in was a little bling (couldn’t help myself!).  The FANCY FROST SEQUINS coordinate perfectly and give a nice little sparkle to the card to compete the look.

Matchbox Treat

One of the things I love about Halloween is making lots of fun treats to give away.  Today’s idea is matchbox style treat featuring JAR OF HAUNTS.

jar-of-haunts-treat-becreativewithnicole-com

These little treats are not only cute, but easy to make.  The Basic Black card stock measured 7 1/4″ x 3″ and was scored at 2 3/4″ and 5 3/4″.  For embellishment, I used the Jack-o-Lantern from JAR OF HAUNTS and HALLOWEEN NIGHT SPECIALTY DSP.

jar-of-haunts-treat

Inside is a candy with a fun sentiment.  A great way to give a little treat or to even advertise your business.  Slip a business card in with the treat and hand these out everywhere you go!

jar-of-haunts-treat-becreativewithnicole-com

When I get a little time this week I think I’ll expand on this idea and do a bunch for everyone at work.  Cookie Cutter Halloween and Spooky Fun would be a couple of other great stamps to use with this idea.

Don’t forget about more great ideas that will be going live Tuesday is the OCTOBER MINI SESSION from Create with Connie and Mary.  We have FULL tutorials for you, all the work is done…you just sit down and craft!  For more information, go to Create with Connie and Mary.  I hope you’ll join us!

Cookie Cutter Halloween

I got a chance to sit down and do a little playing with the fun COOKIE CUTTER HALLOWEEN stamp set.  Love how versatile they made the COOKIE CUTTER BUILDER PUNCH by creating TWO stamp sets that coordinate!

cookie-cutter-halloween-becreativewithnicole-com

When I started making this card I had a different idea in mind and it morphed into what you see, which I love even better than my original thought.  Don’t you just love when creativity just takes over and leads you into a new direction!

cookie-cutter-skeleton

It all started out with a splash of Elegant Eggplant ink using a stamp from GORGEOUS GRUNGE.  I added in a brick wall using the HALLOWEEN NIGHT SPECIALTY DSP and the rest just fell into place.  A few elements were taken from SPOOKY FUN.  I love all the little stamps in that set that work for so many things.  I used the pumpkins, spider web and spider plus the greeting.  Really, I used more from SPOOKY FUN than I did COOKIE CUTTER HALLOWEEN.  That set just provided the super cute skeleton and his Elegant Eggplant bow tie.cookie-cutter-halloween-becreativewithnicole-comTomorrow I have another fun idea with SPOOKY FUN to share for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop.  Don’t forget to subscribe to the October Mini Session, it goes live on the 11th!
