Irresistible Blooms for As You See It Challenge #305

Welcome back to my blog during the hot summer days! Thanks for taking the time to read my posts, I appreciate it! Today I'm sharing a card I made as my DT sample for As You See It Challenge #305 - Recipe for Summer Sunshine. It's a Recipe Challenge, so we are given 6 elements this time, by team member Joanne, that we have to include in our card. Here's the challenge banner:

I looked for a stamp set with coordinating DSP that had shades of yellow in it and I came up with the Hello, Irresistible suite of products, which are from the Online Exclusive products found only on the Stampin' Up! website. You have to go to the Online Store and click on Online Exclusives from the menu in order to find them, or type in Hello, Irresistible.

As you see, we need a circle, patterned paper, a die cut, shades of yellow, an enamel dot AND a thank you sentiment for this challenge. Here's what I did with all those elements:

  • On a Basic White Thick cardstock base I added a layer of Lemon Lolly cardstock, embossed using the Exposed Brick 3D embossing folder and I blended some Daffodil Delight in over the raised bits.
  • I stamped two of the smaller flower images from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used Lemon Lolly Stampin' Blends Combo Markers to colour in one and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Combo Markers to colour in the other. I die cut them with the coordinating dies.
  • I stamped the sentiment, also from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set, in Memento ink on Basic White cardstock, and die cut it using one of the sentiment flags from Stylish Shapes dies.
  • Using the Hello, Irresistible Designer Series Paper in yellow shades, I die cut two rings, using the nesting stitched circles from the Stylish Shapes dies.
  • I arranged these items on the card front and adhered them with liquid glue and Mini Dimensionals.
  • I added 3 Daffodil Delight Glossy Dots to complete the elements needed.
