Easter Blossoms for As You See It Challenges

easter blossoms for aysi challenges 1

 I feel spring in the air! The days are gradually getting warmer. The ice is gone off the fishpond now. The pruning of our fruit trees has been completed. I can see some little buds on the remaining branches, telling me that beautiful blossoms won't be far off now! Though spring is short in this area, and often fickle, it is welcome, and definitely brings hope with it. More this year than ever, as we get closer to having our vaccine in the next few weeks!

So when I had to choose an idea for an Easter Card for As You See It Challenges this week for our Theme Challenge week, I chose cherry blossoms from the Forever Blossoms stamp set. Here is the Challenge Banner for the theme chosen by fellow Design Team member Joanne:

I just didn't have any Easter specific stamp sets. I had to go to Itty Bitty greetings to get an Easter sentiment to use. I'm excited that it's time to use my Forever Blossoms again:

  • On my Petal Pink cardstock card base, I've layered two different designs from the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper in Petal Pink and Gray Granite. I used some of the same Gray Granite design as a backing behind the sentiment as well.
  • I stamped the images from Forever Blossoms in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White cardstock and coloured them in using Petal Pink Stampin' Blends Combo and Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends Combo. 
  • The images were die cut using the Cherry Blossoms Dies. I mounted them on the card front using Glue Dots and Stampin' Dimensionals for the single blossoms.
  • The sentiment was stamped in Memento ink again and die cut along with it's backing using dies from the Tasteful Labels dies.
  • The embellishments are Champagne Rhinestones added to the blossom centers.
Have a great weekend!
