Furever friends.....!!

Hey everyone....

I have a new card to share with you that I made using the 
stamp set "Furever friends"from MFT stamps!!

I thought it would be fun to have the kitty sitting up 
on the "pet perches" die....

My background is done using distress oxide inks in the colours 
"Salty ocean" and "Twisted citron"... 
with a splash of water to give it a fun splotchy effect!!

I had fun creating this little cat and dog card, I hope you all like it too!!

Wishing you rainbows....!!

Evening everyone...

Tonight I have a new card to share using a super cute set from 

Just can't get enough unicorns!! 

I created a rainbow background using distress oxide inks and 
sprayed with my water mister for a splotchy effect...
I then added some die cuts using "Inside scalloped octagon dies" also from CDD!!

All the images are coloured with Copics. 

Because all unicorns need a little bit of sparkle... 
their little hoofs and horns are glittery (not sure it is captured in the photo)!

Hope you enjoy my new card...

For you....!!

Hey everyone....

I have a new card to share with you today using the current sketch 

I dont use a lot of kraft cardstock so this one is a little different for me, 
as I tried to mainly use just kraft... 

The bears are just the cutest little things... 
They are all from the stamp set called "Bitty bears"!!

I used a couple of other MFT dies on this one...

I've only just got my card done in time for this sketch, 
there will be a new one to play along with very soon hehe!!

Otter HUGS....!!

Hey everyone...

Tonight i'm popping by to share my CAS otter shaker card with matching envelope 
using the super cute stamp set from MFT called "Otterly love you"!!

I just adore these cute little Otters and I thought they needed to be 
front of show on the card and envelope...

The images are all watercolored and the 
edging on the envelope is done with distress ink...

To protect the envelope in the mail I covered it 
with a layer of Distress micro glaze...

Thanks for visiting my blog!!

Birthday mouse....!!

Hey everyone...

Tonight I have a card to share with you that I made using the super cute 
image that is currently a freebie from 

I coloured up the little cutie using my Copics...

I am loving creating fun distress oxide ink backgrounds on different shades of 
cardstock at the moment using the "Radiating rays" stencil from "MFT"...

Shaker cards are so much fun to make and fill with lots of pretty things 
so what better card to pop this little mouse on than a shaker!!

The layered Birthday is a die from "Uniquely creative"....

I added a touch of sequins to finish the card off with that extra bit of bling bling!!

Hope you enjoy my card,

Hey everyone....

I have a fun new card to share with you tonight 
using the super cute stamp set called "Bee Cakery" from "Craftin Desert Divas"!!

When I seen this cute set I knew I just had to have it...hehe!!

I was inspired from some cards I seen on instagram 
doing a see through shaker so I wanted to give one a go...

It was so much fun to make!! 

I filled the shaker with a sequin mix called "Honeycomb" from CDD 
that matches perfectly with the bee stamp set... 
I did add a few extra sequins and some little beads out of my stash too!!

I did the front of the card using distress oxide inks 
and the inside panel you can see through the shaker is 
alcohol inks with foil rubbed over the top...

I also used a couple CDD dies on this card...

Thanks for stopping by my blog... 
I hope i inspired you to try out a see through shaker card!!

Woof you....!!

Hey everyone...

There is a new Color challenge at MFT stamps that I thought I'd like to join in...
such a pretty colour combo!! 

Here is my card I made using this as inspiration....

I used the stamp "Pure innocence woof you" 
(which I think is now a retired stamp) and coloured it up with Copics...

The background I did using Distress oxide inks 
Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry....

Of course I needed to add a touch of sequins for a bit of bling!!

I also used these MFT products :
- window die and small brick background stamp (both retired)

I had fun playing around to make this little scene card, 
I hope you like it!!

DT dare... Gratitude!!

Hey everyone...

It's DT dare time at "Your Next Stamp"....
and this is also my last card as a new release guest designer for YNS...
I have had an absolute blast designing for them!! 

The theme is "Gratitude" so I thought this sentiment and
 images from the new release set "Flowers and smiles" suited perfectly!!

The shaker is made using the new die from YNS called "Photo booth panel die"...
It is a fun die that includes many different pieces so you can change up the squares and make it different each time!! 

Pop on over to the "YNS blog" because one lucky commenter will win a stamp set of their choice, how cool is that??!! You just have to leave your comment on the "YNS blog" by 13th MARCH at midnight. 

Thanks so much for stopping by, 
I hope I inspired you to try out the DT dare theme!!

Bubbles of JOY....!!

Good evening everyone....

I wanted to take part in the current "My Favourite Things" sketch challenge, 
and I had just got these super cute bunny stamps "bubble over with joy"
so of course I needed to colour one up!!

Here is my card using both those things....

I used the MFT "Radiating rays" stencil to create the background 
using three distress oxide inks... 

I stamped some of the bubbles out of the stamp set and filled them in with some Nuvo and added a couple of sequins for a bit of bling!!

I had fun playing around with this sketch...
Happy crafting, hugz Ashlee
