Irresistible Blooms Bundle for As You See It Challenge #293

irresistible blooms bundle for aysi #293 1

I'm really excited to introduce to you a new suite of products that will be available for you to see in the Online Store only starting March 1st. This is the Hello, Irresistible Suite and today I'm using some of it for the As You See It Challenge #293 - Recipe in Pinks & Pearls. This is a Recipe Challenge, as you might have guessed from the title and here is the challenge banner:

challenge #293

This challenge included a couple of different recipe elements from what we've used before. I was the host of this challenge and wanted to move us away from the usual without being too difficult, so I included distressed paper and pearls as ingredients along with shades of pink, blossoms and an embossing folder. I was definitely thinking shabby chic, but ended up coming up with a slightly different concept, myself:

  • On a card base of Flirty Flamingo, I placed a layer of Basic White cardstock, 5 1/4" x 4", embossed using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder and distressed around the edges.  
  • On that I adhered a layer of the Hello, Irresistible DSP, cut at 4 1/2" x 3 14", and distressed again around the edges.
  • Using the Irresistible Blooms Dies, I die cut the embellished lines you see at the bottom from Basic White cardstock and glued them on across both layers, trimming them at the ends of the white.
  • On a piece of Fluid 100 watercolour paper, I embossed two of the smaller flowers and the 1 large flower from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set along with the two sets of leaves with White embossing powder.
  • Using a wet-on-wet technique I watercoloured the blooms with Flirty Flamingo in different strengths and for the large bloom, I used a bit of Polished Pink as well.
  • After drying, I painted the leaves shades of Soft Sea Foam and dried them.
  • I used the coordinating dies to die cut all the pieces and added them to the DSP panel with glue dots and dimensionals.
  • For the pearls, I used a combination of Pastel Pearls and Iridescent Pearls.
  • Finally, I took a length of White Seam Binding Ribbon and coloured it using a Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends Marker (alcohol marker) and tied a double finger bow and attached it.

  1. It really is an Irresistible suite! So pretty. That die cut is a darling - I may have to reconsider my non-purchase of it! What a great recipe you set for us, Heather. It really did take us in new directions.

    1. Thanks, Jan! I guess, as the one who formats the banners, I see the same elements used quite often and I see them over a short time period at the beginning of the year, so I wanted to add some new ideas to refresh the idea.

  2. Wow! I love this Heather! Perfectly paired bold images with subtle colors! I really love the white die cuts under the sentiment!

  3. What a great way to incorporate the elements of your challenge! Such fabulous color and texture. Thanks for inviting me to be a guest at As You See It!

  4. This is so, so beautiful Heather - and I am trying to resist those amazing new online exclusives lol! I love the soft pinks and the way you combined those fabulous diecuts into your design too - just gorgeous and I'm happy to say I enjoyed this challenge more than I thought I would!!

  5. What a beautiful card, the colours on the flowers are stunning. Thank you for the lovely comment you left on my blog :o) Leanne,


I love to read your comments and get to know you better! Thanks for adding one!
