Amazeballs...!!

Hey my crafty friends....

I've been having lots of fun this month playing around with the beautiful pearl powders from WOW!...

The pearl powders show up absolutely beautiful on darker coloured cardstock so for this card I have to share with you I thought I would use the Orange pearl on black cardstock with a stencil, and just look how pretty the colour is!!


The stencil I used for this is called "Backsplash" by Simon Hurley create...

I placed it over my black cardstock base and covered it in WOW! embossing ink with an ink blending tool, sprinkled over the Orange pearl, tipped off the excess and heat embossed!!


I added a few super fun sentiments to the card which I heat embossed using opaque bright white powder on black cardstock too!!

The sentiments are from a set by CZ design called "Best days"...


Of course I finished the card off with a touch of sequins....

Before I go I thought I'd remind you all we have a fun challenge over at the WOW! embossing powder fans group on Facebook and this month is Pearls...

Make me smile....!!

Hey everyone....

I am up on the "Gerda Steiner designs" blog with a new card to inspire you using one of the latest release stamps "A whale of a time"!!

These whales are super cute and they have lots of fun sentiments to go with them...


To create this card I first started off with a stencil from "Catherine Pooler" called "Spotlight" and using some WOW! embossing ink I covered the stencil and then embossed it with WOW! Bang embossing powder!!


I coloured us the gorgeous image with Copics and then mounted it onto the base with a double layer of glue dots....

Using some WOW! opaque bright white powder I heat embossed the "You always make me smile" sentiment on black cardstock, cut it into three pieces and mounted that on the card using foam tape for extra dimension....

A touch of sparkly sequins finished it off!!

I hope you enjoyed this new card, I sure had fun creating it...
Happy crafting to all, Hugz Ashlee

Deepest Sympathy my friend....!!

Hey everyone...

Today I have a card to share with you that I made for my sweet friend...
It's always sad when I need to make these types of cards but I wanted to make her something pretty so she know's I'm thinking of her!! 

I used a beautiful stamp set called "Gardenia" from "Miss ink stamps" for this one...


First off I started with a purple piece of cardstock and using some Catherine Pooler inks I created a blend on it with the shades Flirty fuchsia and Grape crush....

Then using some WOW! embossing powders I embossed multiple of the large flowers out of the gardenia stamp set and heat embossed them...


Unfortunately I don't have a complete colour list for my colouring, I thought I took note of them all but I missed the copics...oopsies sorry!! 

ALTENEW MARKERS - 
Leaves : G702, G715, G554, S
Buds : R702, R823, R705

To add a sentiment I heat embossed the "with deepest sympathy" out of the "Magnolia Sympathy" set using some opaque bright white powder on black cardstock....

I just love the effect of white embossing on black!!

To finish it off a touch of some beautiful Catherine Pooler Vegas baby sequins....


Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting to all...

Fairytale wishes....!!

Hey everyone...

There is a brand new stamp & colour kit called "Fairytale wishes" coming very soon at "Uniquely creative" and this one if fit for any prince or princess!!

This first card I made using only products included in the kit...
So this shows the type's of cards you can make just using those specific pieces!!


A simple black stamped image on the base gives a great start to adding coloured elements that pop and also makes it quick to make multiple if you need to build up that card stash!!

I love clean and simple cards and these are certainly that...

For this next one I used a cute little froggy out of one of the add on stamp sets called "Fairytale princes"..


A feature sentiment along with the one colourful frog amongst the grey one's makes a fun card with a focal point!!

All images were coloured using Copic markers and you can find a full list of those used in the booklet included with the kit....

These kits are amazing value, full of craft goodies and I highly recommend them, they give you everything you need to create lots of fun cards!! 

I will have more cards to share with you using these new products very soon, so keep an eye out for more UC inspiration from me!!

Hey alligator....!!

Hey everyone....

I have some new summery fun "Hello Sweetums" inspiration to share with you...

I created this beach scene card using the sweet little mouse from the "Baking buddies" set having a ball on the beach playing in the sand with the snappy crocodile from the 


The background was done using a stencil from Altenew called Scallop builder which I ink blended then used embossing powder over one of the colour layers to give a shimmery effect....


Using the "Water waves" die I added a beach scene behind the coloured images so that they are sitting on the beach...


I coloured in the images with a mix of Copic and Spectrum Tri-blend markers which were all stamped on x-press it blending card with Memento tuxedo black ink...

A large focal sentiment and some water droplets perfect for a beach card finished it off....

I hope you like my latest HS card as much as i enjoyed creating it!!
