Today on the Paper Crafter’s Library blog, we’re continuing our weekly featured artist spotlight whereby each week we spotlight a different artist/designer in the paper crafting & mixed media world and introduce you to their fabulous work. Today we’re thrilled to welcome Ashley Harris.

Before we show you Ashley’s project, let’s get to know her a little bit more…

AshleyHarrisProfilePic-06262014Hello, my name is Ashley Harris.  I am a SAHM with a wonderful husband and 5 beautiful  children. I love my life.  I began loving this thing we call paper crafting when I started scrapbooking back in 2006.  It began as a way to document my family’s memories and then it became a passion.  I love taking paper and turning it into something to be shared and enjoyed.  I love all aspects of this hobby from the creative process to working with other inspiring women to the lasting friendships I have made.



You Are My Sunshine


To make this card I first masked off the edges to create a clean border.  Using Distress ink I created the background by using an ink blender.  I then die cut the clouds and adhered them to the card.  I then die cut the label and inked it with Distress ink.  I stamped the image in watermark ink and then heat embossed it in gold.  I adhered the label to the card with foam adhesive to finish it off.

Cardstock: Neenah Solar White
Vellum: Bazzill Basics
Clear Stamps: Bring the Sunshine stamp set by Simon Says Stamp
Watermark Ink: VersaMark by Tsukineko
Dies: Simon Says Stamp
Embossing Powder: Super Fine Gold by Ranger

We hope you have enjoyed today’s project courtesy of Ashley Harris.  Be sure to stop by Ashley’s blog to see even more of her beautiful work (and let her know we sent you).  You can also find Ashley on FacebookTwitter and Instagram

Have a great day!

  1. Love the sentiment on this card…I can think of many cards where this would be appropriate. Thanks for telling us how you created this card.

  2. What a sweet, simple, and touching card! I just Love your Masking Technique using the Distress Ink and a Blending Tool. Your colors are perfect! I also really like the edges on the Sentiment Die, because it draws my eye right to it. Thank you so much for sharing!
