Delicate Forest Meets Meandering Meadows Meets Paper Pumpkin for As You See It Challenge #318

df meets mm meets pp for aysi #319 1

It's time for another As You See It challenge! Those two weeks seem to fly by!  This time it's a theme challenge and the theme is Easter, thanks to team member Joanne! She is thinking ahead, and a good thing, since Easter is early this year, at the end of March! I had to think about this theme, as my Easter stash is pretty lean. I got creative and used the stamp set that came with my latest Paper Pumpkin kit, and married it with some Meandering Meadows DSP for a backdrop and the Delicate Forest Dies for a frame. I also decided to do some good old paper piecing on the bunny, chick and eggs using paper from the Lighter Than Air DSP. Here's the challenge banner:

 Here's a closer look at my project:

  • On a regular 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base of thick Basic White cardstock, I adhered the same size piece of Meandering Meadows DSP that you see in the photo.
  • I took a piece of Basic White measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and die cut the arch from the Delicate Forest dies, making the arch a little to the right to match the path on the Meandering Meadows DSP. I added it to the card front using Dimensionals to pop it up, adding more depth to the card.
  • From the Sweet Springtime, Feb. 2024 Paper Pumpkin Kit, I used the bunny and the chick stamps to stamp the images in Memento ink on Basic White cardstock and again on chosen Lighter Than Air DSP.
  • I fussy cut the images on the DSP and adhered them onto the images on the Basic White. For the bunny, I didn't include the tail and for the chick I cut off the beak and the legs so they would show up white on the Basic White image. For the bunny's tail, I left it white, but I coloured in the chick's beak and legs with Stampin' Blends Light Pumpkin Pie.
  • Then I fussy cut the whole images from the Basic white and added them to the card front. I used glue dots for the chick and Mini Dimensionals for the bunny, again for depth.
  • The egg images are from the Easter Bunny stamp set. I used the same process to paper piece them with paper from the Lighter Than Air DSP and added them to the card front as well.
  • The sentiment is from the Paper Pumpkin stamp set and is die cut with a banner die from the Delicate Forest dies. It's adhered with dimensionals and a Rainbow Adhesive Backed Dot is added as well as a bow made with the Baker's Twine Three Colour Pack.

Product List


  1. What a clever combination of products! The delicate die cut window creates a perfect frame for the Easter scene and the fact you've used white for it stops it being too busy. Lovely idea!

    1. Thanks, Jan! I admit I was a bit stumped about what to do for this theme.

  2. I love that die cut frame, Heather - your bunny & chick look like they're getting ready for an Easter Egg Hunt!

  3. This is uber creative Heather! It's mesmerizing because the longer I stare, the more 3D it feels. Lovely Easter creation!!
