Bear hugs....!!


Im popping in to share with you another one of my cards I made for the "Uniquely creative" October "Polar pals" stamp & colour kit!!

The polar bears in this set are just the cutest, and perfect for those wintery christmas cards or even a card full of hugs!!

I created a simple card using a distress inked background and products just from the 'Polar pals kit" to give an idea of what you can do with just the stamps from the kit!!

Firstly I masked off a circle on my card base, then picked a couple of blue shades of distress oxide ink. I blended the two colours to create a light ombre look and then stamped some of the snowflake stamps using the same darker blue ink I had used for blending. 

I then used the same distress oxide ink pads again to stamp the sentiment. 

Coloured the image with Copics, die cut it with the co-ordinating dies that also come in the kit and to finish it off added some pretty UC rhinestones!!

A simple but sweet card...

Mice to meet you.....!!

Evening everyone....

Im stopping in to share with you a sneak peek of another stamp set coming in the new release from "Craftin desert divas" called "Mice to meet you"....

Its is super sweet and has such fun sentiments!!

I created a card with the set to share with you too...

I thought it would be fun to use a larger image in the background with a grey coloured ink and then add the sentiment and sweet little bird as the main focal point!!

The bird is coloured up using copics, and I added a touch of white pen for some little highlights....

I could'nt t go past adding some Craftin desert divas sequins to finish the card off!!

A simple CAS card that is easy to use to create multiple cards quickly I think.

Hope you like it, keep an eye out for more CDD sneak peeks before the new release next won't want to miss it.

Dragon tales....!!

Hey everyone....

There is a brand new realease at "Craftin desert divas" coming very soon, which means I am here to share with you a sneaky peek of one of the sets, well two actually....

This new set is called "Dragon tales" and I just love it, its so much fun!!

I thought it would be cool to create a background using the castle stamp and mask off a feature piece using distress inks and the new CDD stencil....

The sentiment is also a new stamp set coming called "Altogether sentiments" in the new release too, I just love the font and its full of great sentiments for many occasions of cards!!

I coloured up the main image using Copics, my fave colouring medium...

A touch of CDD sequins around the main image finished off the card!! 

Pop back soon as I will have more sneak peeks of the new release....
Happy crafting, Hugz Ashlee.

Hi everyone.....

I have a new card up on the "Gerda Steiner designs"blog today using the super cute set
"Carol puppies".... (co-ordinating dies also available)

I made a nice CAS card for this one so that the image was the main focus...

I coloured the puppy up with Copics and popped it onto the card base where I had stamped the sentiment "Have a howly-Jowly Christmas", also from the carol puppies stamp set. 

Once I had my image where I wanted it I added some of the little music notes from the set around the puppy and then finished it off with a touch of sequins!! 

Have fun getting all your christmas cards ready and happy christmas everyone!!

Leave a little sparkle......!!

Hey everyone....

I'm popping in with a late night post for you all, this time using a stamp from "Stamping Bella".... called "Oddball sparkle fairy"!!

These oddballs are so fun to colour up. I have a little video on my youtube channel colouring in her skin if you would like to check that out I'll add it below!! 

I thought this oddball would be perfect for a shaker card filled with lots of sparkly sequins...
The base of my shaker is done using some NUVO shimmer powder in the colour "Violet Brocade".... it is super pretty!!

Here is the video I was telling you about colouring skin. It was just a quick one done using my phone so it doesn't have any major editing and sorry my hand gets in the way a little oops, but I hope you can get the gist of what I was doing!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my new card,

Winter dress up....!!

Evening everyone...

It's time for a new challenge at "Create a smile" challenge blog and this fortnight our theme is "WINTER"!! 

Now jus to give you a bit of insight into making this card, my heat gun decided to die on me right after I had stamped a heap of tiny little snowflakes and covered them in powder......NOOOOOOOO!! Lets just say it was sequins to the rescue hahahaha!!

I created a blended background with some distress oxide inks in peacock feathers and salty ocean and spritzed with a touch of water...

Once that was dry I heat embossed some snowflakes over the background using some WOW embossing powder "Calypso". 

I also heat embossed a snowflake and a christmas tree onto some white cardstock with WOW "Primary blue topaz" powder and fussy cut them out. This was a fun element to pop behind my bear out of the "Dress me up" create a smile set...

I dressed him up in a winter jacket and coloured him with Copic in grey tones so that he kinda looked like a polar bear.... perfect for the winter!!

I hope you enjoy my card and I also hope you will come over to the CAS challenge blog and join us this fortnight, you even have a chance at a wonderful gift card to the store if you enter!!

WOW Embossing coffee blog hop....!!

Hi everyone....

Im so excited I was asked to be a part of the WOW coffee blog hop.

I just love WOW powders, they are seriously the best... they always emboss so nicely.
There is such a huge range of colours available, and some also have glitter in them making them super beautiful and sparkly!! 

For my card I used the WOW powders "sugar plum" to make a sparkly scallop 
and "for the sentiment "opaque bright white regular"....

The cute little cups and sentiment are from a stamp set by "Uniquely creative
called "warm wishes" (there is also matching dies available too).

Here are all the names and links for the hop... 

There is lots of prizes up for grabs along the hopbut WOW especially has donated some vouchers, 1x $20 gift card and 2x $10 gift cards....
All you have to do is comment on all the design teams posts (linked above) for a chance at the flash giveaways and comment on the main coffee lovers post to be in with a chance for the other prize....

Goodluck everyone and enjoy the hop!!
