Hey everyone...

I am here to share with you a new MFT card I made
 using one of their card kits "Fancy florals"...

I heat embossed the flower images in white embossing powder,
then got out a range of Distress ink colours and inked over the top of them...

The distress ink area I sprayed with a spritzer and then dabbed off the water with some paper towel to create the droplet effect...

The sentiment "FRIEND" is covered in clear wink of stella so IRL it is very sparkly!!

There we have a very simple CAS card!!

Summer dreams....!!

Hello everyone...

I was inspired by my crafty friend Jenny to colour up 
"Make it crafty" image, I haven't coloured one of these in ages I must admit...

So I went through my Make it crafty rubber stamps and grabbed out this beauty...

I added one of the super fun "Smile" chippies also from Make it crafty 
that I coloured with my Copics, added some white details 
and then covered in glossy accents..

Along the top corner is a beautiful selection of paper flowers from "I am roses"...

I had fun with this yellow and green combo... 

Hope you all like it!!

Happy crafting, Hugz Ashlee

It's time to showcase the brand new 

It is a SUPER cool kit!!

Shaker cards are so much fun to make 
so I have used Genie Marci as the main image for this one...

The background is made using Distress inks and 
I used the "Make a wish" sentiment die and cut it out of the same distress ink paper piece 
I had done for the background!! 

All the dies in the new club kit are used on this one, along with the 
Double stitched circles from La-La Land 

Genie Marci is coloured using Copics :

CLOTHES - BG0000, BG02, BG10, BG11, BG13

My next project with the club kit is a shaker tag....

This one is done using the WRMK fuse tool so the whole tag is incased in a plastic film and filled with sequins!!

Aren't the Monkey business stamps super cute!!

La-La Land dies used on this tag are :

(I also used a die out of the club kit but it has gotten hidden by all the pretty sequins lol) 

Monkey business is coloured using Copics :
MONKEY - E23, E25, E41, E42, E43, R20
BANANA - Y17, Y32, YR15
