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.

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

Halloween Boo

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week our theme is HALLOWEEN BOO….spooky ideas.

ccmfall3

I immediately went to JAR OF HAUNTS for my card, it’s got some amazing images for a spooky card or treat.

jar-of-haunts-becreativewithnicole-com

Turned out pretty spooky, don’t ya think!  It was a combination of several elements that brought it all together.  First, the BRICK WALL EF was absolutely the perfect background.  I used Basic Gray and added shading with Archival Black ink.  I also added more dimension and spookiness with the spider web from SPOOKY FUN and the tiny spider included with JAR OF HAUNTS.

jar-of-haunts

An ooey, gooey jar of spiders and a haunting jack-o-lantern added to the creepiness of the card.  I personally hate spiders so covering everything in spiders is spooky and creepy to me!  I borrowed the solid color stamp from the original JAR OF LOVE stamp set to give the color in the jar then added slime and colored it with a blender pen and ink pad.

jar-of-haunts-becreativewithnicole-com

Final couple of details that made this card so fun for me were the greeting and candy corns.  I thought I’d better have some kind of treat on the card with “spooky treats” written on it.  I just colored and cut out a couple of candy corns and used mini glue dots to tuck them in the corner.  The sentiment came from the awesome and must have set LABELER ALPHABET.  I stamped the letters in black on Whisper White all in a row then cut out each word.

I hope you enjoyed this spooky idea, I can’t wait to see what the rest of the Design Team did!  Below is a supply list so you can re-create this fun Halloween card for yourself!

Jar of Haunts

I don’t you about you, but I love making spooky cards and treats for Halloween each year.  This year one of the new stamp sets that stood out to me is JAR OF HAUNTS.

jar of haunts

It has two, yes TWO coordinating sets so you have loads of options!!  JAR OF LOVE and JAR OF CHEER are the other two and they all coordinate with the EVERYDAY JARS FRAMELITS.

For today’s card, I was inspired by all the spooky eyes…………….

Isn’t this great!  The LABELER ALPHABET made this perfect greeting possible.  But there’s still more……..

The jar is hinged to open for the last bit of the sentiment and a pair of spooky eyes!  I just LOVE this!!!

Color Fusers Blog Hop: September 2016 – Part 1

Welcome to the first week of the September COLOR FUSE BLOG HOP!  Twice a month on the first and third Monday’s we’ll be bringing you inspiration through color!  September’s hops will feature four gorgeous colors.

color fusers sept 2016

I picked a stamp set you may not have thought of for this set of colors.

Live Love Grow Mini Treat Bag becreativewithnicole.com

LIVE, LOVE, GROW is a favorite of mine!  I just love the sweet succulents and sentiments.  I know you would typically think of this set being in neutrals and greens, but I love the idea of throwing in a Sweet Sugarplum succulent along with the Mint Macaron plants.

Live Love Grow becreativewithnicole.com

To make this a beautiful but functional card, I added a birthday greeting inside along with a couple more succulents.

Live Love Grow

Let’s delve into the nitty gritty and talk about how all the colors from the challenge were used.  Obviously I love SWEET SUGARPLUM, I used it for the card base and one of the succulent plants.  It’s a great light purple that reminds me of the old Pale Plum that Stampin’ Up! had years ago when I first started stamping.  MINT MACARON comes into play with the other plants.  This pale green is such a lovely color and is a great stand out against the plum.  I added in the other two colors as accents.  FLIRTY FLAMINGO is used only with the ribbon for the inside card and the die cut “love” in my sentiment.  It works really well with the card and really adds that little bit of contrast that was needed.  Lastly, RICH RAZZLEBERRY was used with the small flowers on the largest plant.  I used the TREE BUILDER PUNCH to get the tiny flower that would work with the size plants in my terrarium.

Live Love Grow inside card

The inside is embellished a little with the lovely plants and a fun birthday greeting that is a combination of SUNSHINE SAYINGS and LIVE,LOVE,GROW.

Live Love Grow becreativewithnicole.com

If you haven’t tried these MINI TREAT BAG cards, I highly encourage you to!  They are a bit smaller than a typical card so even though they are more 3D, they still fit into the Stampin’ Up! envelopes.  It’s a great way to step up you card making for the WOW factor.  If you’d like to give this style of card a try, check out the supply list below and click on any of the items you would like to order or know more about.

Here Comes the Sun

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week we have a really fun theme, HERE COMES THE SUN.

All of our projects will have something to do with sunshine, so of course I immediately went to the SUNBURST THINLIT.

Sunburst Thinlit becreativewithnicole.com

Any time I get a chance, I love to use the SUNBURST THINLIT.  It’s such a fun way to add texture and pizzaz to a card or project.

Sunburst Thinlit by becreativewithnicole

Aren’t Pool Party and Peekaboo Peach are gorgeous together!  I added a sentiment in Archival Black ink for a pop against the paler colors.  The new LABELER ALPHABET stamp was the perfect solution for creating a custom greeting.  Each letter was stamped individually then the whole word was cut out and added to the card.
