Flower Frenzy for As You See It Challenges

I love the colours that Amanda used in this week's As You See It Challenge #49 and I was excited to get started on it.

It looks icy cool and mouthwatering, doesn't it?  I thought it would be a perfect challenge for the new Cupcake  Party stamp set that coordinates with the Cupcake Builder Punch.  The trouble is, I don't have it yet.  It's on my wishlist, but that didn't help me for this challenge.

So, my next thought was Flower Frenzy Bigz L die and here is the result:

  • I kept it simple because of the big flowers and just added a sentiment from Yippee Skippee in the top right.
  • I put three 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" sheets of cardstock through the Big Shot with the Flower Frenzy Bigz L die all at once: 1 sheet of Blackberry Bliss, one of Strawberry Slush and one of Very Vanilla - all very foody colours!  Then I mixed and matched pieces until I created the three flowers you see.
  • I used my bone folder to give the petals some shape and create interest with the 3D effects.
Aaaannnndd, that's about it!  I have to say that I've used the Flower Frenzy Bigz L die several times since I got it in June and it is so useful for creating quick and cute embellishments for cards, gifts, boxes and other things as well.  I feel that I have already got my money's worth from it!  Check out these projects.

I will be setting up shop at the Westbank Farmer's Market on Saturday!  I will have some great deals, great prizes and games, some retired products for sale as well as some kits and I am looking forward to meeting you!  Come and say hello!

Have a great weekend, and I hope you will try this latest challenge from As You See It Challenges this week!  Thanks for dropping by!
