As You See It 185 - Design Team Card

This week at As You See It, Amanda has given us a gorgeous colour challenge. Isn't it a pretty colour combo?

With Stampin' Up's big colour re-vamp this year, I did part with quite a few of the retired colours. Dapper Denim wasn't one of them, so I dug it out and sponged it, along with Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist, onto a piece of watercolour paper. Then there was a flurry of spritzing, stencilling and stamping until I was happy with the look of it.

Sunshine Sayings is a great set especially when paired with the matching dies, Sunshine Wishes. Together, they give you any number of salutations and wishes for most occasions. The 'love' I die cut from the background paper before the stencilling and stamping happened and it's layered up on two Dapper Denims cuts. Doesn't the Stitched Shape framelit add some pizzazz to the simple white circle?

Dapper Denim is a retired colour but you could recreate this look easily by substituting Night of Navy.

Pop over to As You See It and check out how the rest of the team saw this challenge then join in and show us by Wednesday 3 October.

Product List


  1. That background is amazing, Jan! So much more than meets the eye at first glance. Did you stencil then stamp, or vice versa? I love that the die cut sentiment is sponged like the background!

  2. I stencilled, then stamped. But only because I decided later to add the stamp because it needed more oomph.
