As You See It recipe challenge with beautiful blooms

Hello there! I’m back with a second post today for our new challenge at As You See It. We’ve got a recipe for you this time, created by Heather – you need to include all the elements in your card. I’ve also included the elements on the right hand diagonal from TicTacToe‘s new grid – die cut (flowers), free (dry embossing) & spring (the pink daisies)

I decided to go with the ‘beautiful blooms’ dies from Julie Hickey Designs as the main focus for this card, but first stamped the stems from the ‘sweet meadow’ set onto white card. I coloured the leaves with ‘bundled sage’ Distress Oxide and a waterbrush, then ran it through the ‘hive’ embossing folder from Stampin’ Up!

I distressed the edge of the embossed card by blending ‘kitsch flamingo’ & ‘picked raspberry’ Distress Oxides around it, mounted it on a layer of black card and attached it to a 5×7 card blank.

I die cut one of the ‘beautiful blooms’ flower bases in white card twice and blended the ‘kitsch flamingo’ and ‘picked raspberry’ into them. I cut two of the flower toppers in white, glued them onto the bases and then attached both to the card front.

I stamped the sentiment onto a die cut banner and added it across the lower part of the card. I finished with pink pearls in the centre of each flower and either side of the sentiment.

So that’s all the elements included: distressed paper (by bending the ink around the edge), blossoms, pearls (pink ones!), shades of pink (definitely!) and an embossing folder for the background. How has the recipe inspired you?

  1. I love this Deborah! I like the way you’ve coloured the flower base and then let them hang out of the frame. I really like how you’ve managed to take vintage elements and still keep a clean design. Fantastic!

  2. I love that you still created a clean and layered style yet managed to follow the recipe Deborah – those overhanging blooms are so fresh too! The whole distressed paper thing properly brought me out in hives lol!

  3. Deborah…. I love your background. I so appreciate you sharing your technique… I often learn so much through other cardmakers who share. Beautiful card! Thank you so much for joining Tic Tac Toe.
