Out West is coming....!!

Hey my crafty friends....

There is a brand new release on the way at "Catherine Pooler" and the collection is called "Out West" and let me tell you its SUPER AWESOME as always!!

This sneak peek of the new goodies uses products from the "Wanna hug bundle" and I just love them all!!

- Wanna hug stamp set / Co-ordinating die
- Canyon mini coverplate


To create these card I started with a white base and then cut out the Canyon mini coverplate also from white cardstock and then cut it to have a piece of it on the bottom of the base and a pieces angled on the top of the base....


I then stamped and die cut some cacti and some pots to put them in using a mix of Catherine Pooler inks....


I added on a sentiment from the Wanna hug stamp set using Midnight CP ink and then added some Crater lake sequins to finish it all off!!

Keep an eye out for more Out West collections reveals, you won't want to miss it!!
 Happy crafting, Ashlee

From our house to yours....!!

Hey everyone....

I'm loving creating Christmas tags at the moment and these gorgeous new products from the latest "Miss ink stamps" release are perfect for them!!

I've used a mix of stamps for these....


To create the tags I first stamped a red piece of cardstock with the Woodcut floral background and then die cut out pieces from the Honeybee stamps scallop square gift tag....
(some pieces in the red stamped cardstock and some in white)

For this first tag I coloured in the holiday house image with spectrum noir tri-blend markers and die cut a piece from it with one of the scallop tag dies so that it fit perfectly on the tag....


This second tag features a fun sentiment from the seasons greetings set and the cute little mouse from snow buddies....

For the last tag I added a tree stamped from the oh deer set along with another cute little mouse and sentiment....


All of them were finished off with sequins from the Christmas cove and Crater lake Catherine Pooler sequin mixes!!

I can't wait to add these to some Christmas gifts this year!!

Hope you enjoy them and feel inspired to start creating some holiday gift tags...
Happy crafting, Hugz Ashlee

HELLO gold and silver....!!

Hey everyone....

Im up on the WOW! embossing blog today and I have a couple cards to share with you using pops of gold and silver giving you some inspiration for the WOW! monthly theme....

I created these card by starting with a coloured card base and adding some ink around the edges getting lighter towards the centre....


For this pink version I used Catherine Pooler party dress for the ink colour on the pink cardstock and then Flirty fuchsia for the ink colour on the light purple!!


It was then time to die cut the hello with a bouquet die from Pinkfresh studio and heat emboss it with WOW! Mettalic gold sparkle powder....

I just love this gold powder it's super beautiful!!


Using the same colour card as I used in the purple version I die cut the Hello with a bouquet die to get the hello letters and add them inside the die with some foam tape for added dimension....

Onto the second card I die cut the hello with a bouquet die in the same pink cardstock and added that to the card base...


For this one instead of heat embossing the flower part I heat embossed the Hello with WOW! Metallic silver sparkles....

It's hard to capture the true beauty of the silver one in the photo but its another beautiful powder for sure!!


Of course both cards I finished off with a touch of sequins because I love me some bling!!

I really hope you enjoy both of these cards, I always find it fun to create a set of cards that are the same but different... 

You should totally give it a try and don't forget to come and join us in our monthly challenge "Gold and Silver" over in the WOW! embossing fans Facebook group...

Happy embossing everyone, Hugz Ashlee


Some buggie....!!

Hey everyone...

It's a brand new month and a brand new challenge at "WOW! embossing" Facebook fan page..

This months theme is Gold and Silver so for this card I got out the beautiful "Pearl gold sparkle" powder!!


I die cut the "Blooming flowers background" die from Paper rose studio and heat embossed it all over using the pearl gold sparkle and added it to a base I created with some teal cardstock that I blended on a bit of Party dress Catherine Pooler ink!!


I thought it would be cute to add on some pretty bugs from the Hello Sweetums "Bitty bugs" stamp set that I coloured with Spectrum noir tri blend markers....

A heat embossed sentiment done with the same pearl gold embossing powder and die cut with the co-ordinating die along with some Vegas baby sequins finished off the card!!

Hope you enjoy the inspiration and come along and join us this month in the WOW! embossing Facebook fans challenge....

Christmas tags....!!

Hey everyone...

I'm up on the "Gerda Steiner" blog today with a post sharing these tags 
perfect for Christmas gifts featuring the santa and reindeers from the "Reindeer and a tree" set!!....

To create the tag bases I used a die from Honeybee stamps called "Scallop sqaure gift tag" and stamped them with a background stamp from "Catherine Pooler" called "Plaid background"


I coloured up these cuties from the "Reindeer and a tree" stamp set with Copic markers and added them to a fun snowy scene I created using distress oxide ink, some opaque white paint and a hill using a die from "Hello Sweetums" called "Slippery slopes"


I added the characters to the tags with some foam tape for added dimension and finished them both off with some pretty sequins and some ribbon to tie the tag onto a gift....

I hope you enjoy my tag inspiration today and I will be back soon with some more creations to share with you!!
