As You See It 200 - Design Team Card

This week, at As You See It Challenge, it's a very special week. Firstly, it's a celebration - our 200th challenge! As part of that celebration, the Featured Artist this week will be offered a Guest Design spot for challenge 202. That's something new for us - we've never had a Guest Designer before. If you'd like to be it, make sure you play this time! 

Secondly, it's an ending for some of our team. Our Designer, and the founder of the challenge, Amanda Turner has decided to hang up her designing hat to pursue some other creative things. Thank you, Amanda, for all you have done for us in the preceding 200 challenges. It's also the end for our team member, Tara Angus. Thanks, Tara, for all your inspiration.

Finally, it's also a special week because it's the start of new things for us. You won't notice a change in how we look next week but from challenge 201, the team (Heather, Jane, LeAnne, Amy and I) will be taking on the designing and we'll be starting a regular rotation of challenge types. You'll hear more about this next challenge.

So, enjoy this week's theme - TWO. Two of anything.

I've gone for that gorgeous new set in the upcoming Annual Catalogue, Free As A Bird. I've taken the single bird image, worked some Stamparatus magic on it and created a mirror mate for him.

I've stamped, coloured and fussy cut the pair a branch and some flowers as they start their new life together. Notice the little key to their new nest tucked in under the 'congratulations'? That's one of the new Bird Ballad Trinkets that are part of the suite, as is the lovely soft, distressed DSP.

This luscious suite should be on your wish list, if it isn't already! 

You can see what the rest of the team have done by visiting As You See It Challenge. We'd love to see what you make of this theme.

If you live in New Zealand and don't have a demonstrator, I'd love to be yours. I can help you with ideas and provide you with Stampin' Up products.

  1. Happy 200th to AYSI - I love your challenge and the sketches (my fave) are just the best! Your sweet birdies are adorable Jan; I love the soft colours and wash-effect on this paper too. I didn't think I needed those trinkets but the addition of the key is really cute (I am adding to my shopping list!)
