Squeak cheeks....!!

Hey my crafty friends...

OMG have you seen the latest release from "Hello Sweetums"??!! 
It is full of super gorgeous new stamp sets, co-ordinating dies and a fun standalone die... You totally need to check it out!!

I've got a new card to share with you using the new set "Squeak cheeks"....
(I also die cut all the images with the co-ordinating dies)


To create this card I used some Distress oxide inks to do a blended background, 
some grass and a cloudy sky....

I then used a rectangle frame die to cut out a frame in white cardstock. 

All the images were coloured up using Spectrum noir tri-blend markers and then arranged on the base to create a little scene....

A sentiment also from the Squeak cheeks set and some sequins finished the card off!!

I really hope you enjoy my latest Hello Sweetums creation and feel inspired to get your hands on some of the new goodies....

Happy crafting, Hugz Ashlee.

Technique Tuesday and WOW! blog hop....!!

Hey everyone.... 

It's time for a fun blog hop with WOW! and Technique Tuesday!!


I've made a card for the hop using the super awesome die set "Berry basket" along with the "Sweet summertime" stamp set from Technique Tuesday and embossed pieces with WOW! powders 

- Primary Apple red 
- Metaline Greengage
- Opaque bright white 


To start this card I stamped a plaid background using a stamp from Catherine Pooler half way on my card base using Rockin red CP ink. Then with a black die cut strip I added it to the top of the plaid background to create a little bench for my Technique Tuesday berry basket to sit on....


I die cut multiple of the strawberries and heat embossed them with my WOW! dual heat gun using the Apple red and Greengage powders. 

Once the strawberries were all done I added them into the cutest little berry basket I've seen which I cut out with Neenah desert storm cardstock and slightly inked the edges with a brown ink. 

To finish the card off I added a stamped sentiment to the top and then a bright white opaque embossed sentiment that I fussy cut out of black cardstock. 
A touch of sequins too of course!!

Stay cool....!!

Hey my creative friends...

I have a new card to share with you tonight using the SUPER adorable set "I scream you scream" from Catherine Pooler's brand new release.....
(co-ordinating dies also available)

I am totally loving this ice cream truck its just so sweet!!!!


To create this card I first masked off a panel of the card base with some post it tape and ink blended in from the side using Party dress CP ink...
Then using the background stamp "Wild thing" I stamped over the pink with Aquatini CP ink. 

I stamped, coloured and then die cut the images from the I scream you scream set and then mounted them on the card using foam tape for dimension.
(Images coloured with Spectrum tri-blend/Copic markers) 

I stamped the stay cool sentiment straight onto the card base and then finished off the card with some Catherine Pooler sequins from the Vegas baby mix!!


Hope you like my new card, happy crafting everyone and have a fabulous weekend!!

BEE - YOU....!!

Hey crafty friends...

Hope you are all well and having a crafting good time!! 

I'm popping in tonight to show you a new card I made featuring the brand new release from "Create a smile stamps"....

For this one I used something from every new stamp set released this month...

along with a brand new die "Stitched rectangles"...


To start the card I ink blended half of the card base with a yellow ink and then splattered with a black ink mixed with a little water... because you know I had to go with the traditional bee colours of yellow and black!!


I then cut one of the stitched rectangle and stamped all over it with the stripe pieces from the mix and match patterns set...

I heat embossed a clematis flower using WOW! opaque bright white powder on vellum and adhered it with small pieces of glue in places that were going to be hidden under elements like the bee's which I popped on top of the flower with some foam tape for dimension....

A fun sentiment using the letters stamped on one of the smaller stitched rectangles along with some sequins for bling finished off the card....

This new release from Create a Smile is super awesome, you should totally check it out!!

Happy crafting everyone, Hugz Ashlee.

Hello Sunshine blog hop....!!


Hey everyone....

I'm SUPER excited to be a guest for "Catherine Pooler designs" and to be joining in on this awesome blog hop for the brand new Hello Sunshine release!!

There is some AMAZING products coming, your totally going to want to hop along and check out all the sneaks...

For my hop cards I have a couple to share with you using a beautiful new set called "Whimsical blooms" and a stencil "Flourish and whimsy"!!

This stamp set features lots of beautiful layering flowers and sentiments...


For the first card I ink blended half way up my card base using CP ink in It's a girl and Party dress. Then using the new stencil I lightly inked over the blended base with the same ink Party dress. 

I die cut the co-ordinating flower shape from the whimsical blooms die set in white cardstock and placed it in my Misti to start stamping on the flower layers. 
First layer using its a girl then the second layer party dress and for the leaves I used Aquatini. Once the flowers were all diecut/stamped I added them to the card base using some foam tape for dimension. Finished it off by stamping the sentiment in Midnight ink and a touch of CP sequins 

Onto the second card....


This one is a one layer card all stamped straight onto the card base with CP inks..

To stamp the flowers on this one I used Pixie dust layered with Flirty fuchsia and the leaves/branches with Lime rickey. Sentiment Midnight ink. 

Again finished this one off with a touch of CP sequins, these ones from the Vegas baby pot mix (They are sooo pretty, my absolute fave CP sequins mix for sure!!)
