As You See It Holiday Bonus Challenge

 Merry Christmas and all the best for 2023!

Thank you for playing along with us at As You See It Challenge this year. We love to see what you create with our regular rota of six types of challenge. Technically, the Christmas Bauble Speed Challenge was our last challenge of the year. But we were chatting about next year's challenge and we thought about the way that after Christmas and New Year we often went to escape into our craft rooms only to discover that many challenges have shut down until mid-January. 

So we decided that this year, we'd offer a bonus challenge to tide us over until the new rota starts. We went for a style of challenge different to our usual round of challenges. This one is an inspiration challenge: you can take whatever you like from the picture below and use it to jumpstart an idea for a project. You might like the colours, the textures, the objects within, the ideas or feelings it suggests. Whatever it is, use it to get you mojo flowing. 😀

What drew me to this picture were the colours: the rich mix of browns and golds, along with that pretty bunch of sunflowers.

The sentiment is from a set that will be available on 5 January when the new January Mini Catalogue goes live. It's called Something Fancy and this sentiment-only set also bundles with  a set of lovely label shaped dies. I've used the stitched circle from Stylish Shapes as my base.

You'll see that I also picked up the music idea from the picture by using the Merry Melody embossing folder for the base. 

I hope you'll join us for a bit of post-Christmas fun. We will comment on your creations although you'll have to be forgiving if maybe we aren't quite as quick on the job as usual. 😂

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 on any of the products below.

  1. So simple yet so effective! Those sunflowers frame the sentiment beautifully and I love the subtlety of the embossed music background. Such a great take on the photo!
