As You See It 208 - Design Team Card

It's week 2 of our rotation schedule at As You See It Challenge, so that makes it colour week.

These colours got me thinking marine, so I turned to Seaside Notions. This sweet little set has a number of marine images, including the shells, seaweed and gorgeous seahorse, as well as a number of useful sentiments. The images lend themselves to colouring so I've used Mango Melody and Pretty Peacock Stampin' Blends. 

The seaweed is stamped in a mixture of Coastal Cabana and Pretty Peacock, then sponged lightly with Coastal Cabana.

I took further inspiration for this card from the sketch at Inspire.Create.Challenge. You can play along with them until 1 September.

If you live in New Zealand and don't have a Stampin' Up Demonstrator, I'd love to be yours. I can help you with ideas, get you catalogues and provide you with Stampin' Up products. You can leave a message in the comments or contact me using any of the methods listed in the Contact Me tab at the top of the page. You can shop with me from anywhere in New Zealand by clicking on the SHOP NOW button in the sidebar or clicking on any of products below.

Update: Delighted to be picked the winner at Inspire. Create. Challenge

Product List


  1. I am going to have to get this set Jan - I love everything you create with it! The yellow pairs beautifully with the blues and I love the colouring and shading on your seahorse with your blends, a really effective way to add depth.

  2. Such effective colour blending on your seahorse Jan! Love the ripple effect of your background too.
