MFT & Friends....!!

Hi everyone.... 

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was to be asked to join 
My Favourite Things as a guest designer this month for their MFT & friends post
It has been a dream of mine for a long time to work with this company 
so to have been asked to guest for them was AMAZING for me!! 

They have awesome products for us crafters to create with, its always such a joy...
and this new collection is certainly not going to disappoint, as there is so many fun new products that I'm sure you will just have to have in your collection!!

I actually have multiple creations to share with you today because just needed to play with everything hehe...

These first couple cards I made using the set called "snow special"... its full of super cute little penguins!!

The christmas tree is a new die-namics called "christmas tree window"...
I used some NUVO shimmer powders on photo paper behind the tree for a fun colourful effect. 

For this next card I created a tunnel effect using some MFT circles die-namics and then added a frame around the front using "stitched mini scallop circle stax".

I thought the "Happy christmas" sentiment finished it off nicely cut from a white glitter card. 

Onto another new stamp set, this one is called "here comes santa claus"...

This card is a mix of fun things, a peek a boo wheel (a new die-namic) with a hidden sentiment "with love from santa" along with a shaker filled with pretty sequins!!

I think the peek a boo wheel adds such a fun element to any card!!

The "snowflake window" die-namic is great to use for beautiful windows and shakers, 
you can use the rectangle piece of the frame separate too...

Again I used some NUVO shimmer powders on photo paper for a bright and cheery pink christmas card. 

Is'nt the sentiment just the best....hahahaha, "Sassy pants holiday" is a fun 
set for all those quirky sentiments for your christmas cards!!

I've been wanting to make a tunnel card for awhile so this next one features a 
shaker and tunnel card all in one....

"Fa la la" die-namic was perfect to use as a shaker for the front of the card.

The inside tunnel.....

Using the cutout pieces from the front of the card I added some for a 
little sentiment on the inside...."la la la".
My next card is a puzzle spinner, you can send it to the recipient all messed up so they have to spin it around too see the full picture and sentiment.

Once the puzzle is complete this is the full picture....

Would you have fun receiving this card?!

Here comes santa clause is such a fun set full of great santa claus 
images along with lots of sweet extras to get all those christmas cards sorted!!

(All images were coloured using Copic sketch markers and some NUVO markers)

I hope you have enjoyed my extra special post today, I know I had an absolute 
blast creating them all....

Thankyou SOOOO much for having me MFT!!

Let it snow....!!

Hi everyone... 

Thought I'd pop in real quick tonight and share a card I made 
using some products from "Avery elle".

This card features the fab element die "Let it snow" and a mix of stamps from "A merry little christmas", "Christmas magic" and "Quirky christmas" sets. 

I coloured all the sweet little images in with Copics and propped them all inside the let it snow die to create a fun little christmas scene...

The christmas tree I stamped with the same colour distress oxide ink that I used for the lighter portion of the outside frame so it all matched in nicely. 

I added a touch of sequins from "Hbbrittneylee" frosty mix to finish it off. 

Hope you have enjoyed your visit, and found a little inspiration for your christmas cards!!
Happy crafting everyone, Ill be back soon with a very special post!!

Warm heart....!!

Hi everyone....

WooHooo.... it's time for me to share with you another card I made using a new release stamp set from "Craftin desert divas" called "Winter trolls"!!

I just love the signature CDD trolls... they are always so adorable. 

I used distress inks to create a bright pink background with a heart pattern 
using the CDD stencil "hearts galore"...

The image and sentiment is framed with a die cut using the "inside scalloped rectangles".

Finished off the card with a touch of CDD sequins... they have so many adorable mixes available but this "bubblegum mix" is one of my faves!! 

Hope you like my sneak peek of the new release.... 
I will have more to share with you soon!!

Hey everyone...

Im up on the "Gerda Steiner" blog today with this new card using the super cute 
"Carol kitten" stamp set (co-ordinating dies also available)!!

I masked the kittens to create a fun little scene of them singing carols out in the snow...
(They are all coloured up using Copic markers). 

I created the background by using a sun ray stencil with distress oxide inks and then used a snow stencil with some NUVO glimmer paste over the top. 

I had lots of fun creating this fun snowy scene, I hope you like it!!

Happy crafting friends, Hugz Ashlee
