Prized Peony Posthaste for As You See It Speed Challenge

prized peony posthaste for aysi 1

 I was almost getting to the point where I enjoyed doing the Speed Stamping challenges for As You See It Challenges, that is until today! Speed Stamping Challenges are where you have 10 minutes to complete a card from first cut to the end. You're allowed to plan and gather materials before starting the clock, but as soon as you actually begin any work, the ten minutes begins! Usually I enjoy it, but for some reason a member of the Design Team (ahem) decided that blossoms would be a great theme for a speed challenge! I don't know what I -er- she was thinking! Blossoms are not that easy to pull off in 10 minutes!  In fact, what you see here is my second go at the challenge! I was kind of disgusted at my first sample. And I'm thinking I should have just stamped this image instead of trying to colour it in with my Stampin' Blends!  Oh well, after 9 min. and 54 sec. I called it quits and it is what it is.

Here's what it looks like a little closer (although why I'm doing this, I don't know!):

  • On my Petal Pink base, I added layers of the Petal Pink and Gray Granite Peony Garden Designer Series Paper.
  • On some Basic White I stamped the large peony image from the Prized Peony stamp set in Memento ink and coloured it in with whirlwind timing (as you can probably tell) with the Petal Pink and Gray Granite Stampin' Blends Marker Combos.
  • I added some splatters with the Gray Granite Stampin' Write Marker.
  • The sentiment is from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set, stamped in Gray Granite ink and die cut with the Tasteful Label dies.
  • Everything was slathered with adhesive and stuck to the card front - quick!! Hands up at 9 minutes and 56 seconds! No time for embellishments!

My April class has been posted here and on Facebook! It is a Mother's Day themed class although the projects could be for anyone if you simply change the sentiments.
Here are the details:

I have my hands on the new 2021/22 Annual Catalogue now and I just did the first of my pre-orders in August! You'll be able to order starting May 4th.

I'm excited to show you the beautiful new stamps, inks and tools you'll be able to get your hands on!  If you would like a new catalogue please message me to let me know!

last chance products

In the meantime, there are some amazing savings on the items from the old Annual Catalogue that had to retire in order to make room for the new products! Check out the list HERE.

There are already several products that have sold out. They are marked with a yellow highlighter on the list. So it is a good reminder that the products are only available until May 3 or WHILE SUPPLIES LAST and some things go fast!! Don't wait in case you miss out!
