Hey busy bee....!!

Hey everyone...

I'm a busy bee tonight getting some crafty stuff organised but I'm popping in because I wanted to share with you this fun card I made using some sweet goodies from "Create a smile stamps"...

I coloured up and shared on my Insta last week (ashbie1412) my Copic combos for the bee's out of the "best bugs" stamp set so of course they needed to make their way onto a card...


I did a fun ink blended background using Distress oxide inks in Twisted citron and Blueprint sketch and added a touch of leaves from the "Fine ferns" set...


For the sentiment I heat embossed the "Hey busy bee" and some black cardstock with WOW! embossing opaque bright white powder, I love this technique for sentiments on my cards!!

I finished off the card with some Catherine Pooler Vegas baby sequins...

I hope you enjoy this busy bee card, Till next post...
Happy crafting, hugz Ashlee

Wanna pick a pine....?!

Hey everyone....

I am SUPER excited because there is a brand new release "It's all about Christmas" coming September 18th at "Catherine Pooler" and it is SO awesome!!!!

Catherine and Erika have been sharing sneak peek videos all week of the bundles that are coming so I thought I would pop in and show you a card I made using the Pick a pink bundle.... and can I just say OMG I love this set!!


I could not wait to create a fun little scene using these stamps.... the tractor is just too cute pulling along it's trailer full of trees!!

I stamped the images using CP inks in the shades 
- Rouge
- Spruce
- Black jack 
- Icing on the cake


The bundle also includes a gorgeous co-ordinating paper pack so I used a sheet of it for the background... I love how the papers have matching images to the stamps!!


And can I get a WOOHOO for how awesome the new Christmas cove sequin mix is....
We all know I'm a big fan of adding sequins to my cards and this mix certainly doesn't disappoint, it is perfect to match all those papers in the bundle and CP Inks!!

I am looking forward to sharing more cards with you using this release, so keep an eye out as there is more to come...

The team is sharing lots of peeks too on social media so be sure to check them all out.

This one uses the super awesome set "Boo crew".. 
I think this one is so adorable and I can see this set being used for other cards throughout the year, not just halloween!!


To create this card I started by using Distress oxide inks in the shades Mustard seed and Wilted violet along with some normal Distress ink in black soot to do a dark night sky with moonlight...


I coloured in all the images using Copics on X-press it blending card...

Hello racoon....!!

Hey my crafty friends...
Welcome to another post for "Gerda Steiner designs"...

I have a card to share that I made using the super cool new set "Sneaky racoons"....
(co-ordinating dies also available).


I wanted to make this a nice simple CAS design so I used a stamp from "Uniko" called "Pinstripe" for the background and stamped it using Memento tuxedo black ink...


I coloured up the sneaky raccoon using Copic and added a "hello" sentiment by heat embossing it with WOW! opaque bright white powder on some black cardstock....

Of course in true Ashlee fashion I had to finish off the card with a touch of sequins!!

Hope you enjoy this CAS card, Happy crafting...
