Mango Flowering Tulip Fields Thank You AYSI270

by Joanne James11. March 2022 13:00

Today I'm sharing my design team card for our new challenge over at As you See It where the I chose a theme of spring flowers for our challenge this week:


The Stampin' Up! catalogue is great for florals of all kinds and the current mini has a great selection of spring florals in particular. I was a little spoilt for choice! I decided to showcase some of the beautiful Flowering Fields designer series paper covered in bright tulips on my card today - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

Flowering Fields - The handpainted designs of the Flowering Tulips designer series paper are stunning! Beautifully coloured and sized perfectly for cardmaking. I chose one with a mango-orange colour scheme and used the sketch over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge for my layout, cutting the paper into three columns. The pattern carries across the panels and the layering adds visual interest to the design. 

Tulips And More - I also used the co-ordinating 'Flowering Tulips' bundle for the remaining details. I tweaked the sketch elements slightly, using the horizontal element to showcase one of the Tulips Dies and added the sentiment to the circle - it's a perfect fit:


A Final Touch - My final addition was some of the check ribbon, that I wrapped around my diecut and tied in a bow. I sometimes feel like I have lots of ribbon that I don't use and this design really lends itself to a bow I think. The colours compliment the busy paper pattern beautifully without overwhelming. 

So what do you think? When you think 'spring flowers', what is the floral set that you reach for? Do join us over in the AYSI gallery with your spring floral creations.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

I hadn't really seen the mango in this paper when I first looked at it but that background sets off the dsp so well.  The paper works so well with the layout as well.  Beautiful card!

This paper is stunning! I love the colours and the flowers are amazing. I love the die cut and the ribbon, they are the perfect combination with the card. Thanks for playing along with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge (AHSC).
