My adrenaline was flowing last night watching my Phillies with a come from behind win over the dreaded Mets so I decided it was a perfect time to play along with the As You See It Challenge #247 Blossoms theme Speed Challenge. You have 10 minutes to complete your card project on this challenge. So, taking a deep breath and gathering the cardstock, patterned paper, stamps, ink, markers and paper cutter, I was ready to begin. My blossoms and sentiment from GKD’s Whimsical Spring stamp set were both stamped in Versafine Clair Nocturine black ink on a piece of Recollections Sea & Sky patterned paper pad then colored with some SU and Memento markers. I added a few GKD Crystalline drops and Liquid Pearls in Buttercup adhered all the layers and DONE! Seven Minutes Flat. This came together so easily that I made a second one. Of course, it did take longer thank 10 minutes for the crystalline drops and liquid pearls to dry. Another fun challenge from AYSI.
Thanks for stopping in today and taking a peek.

Looks great! I am amazed that this beautiful card took seven minutes. Great job!
Thanks, Lisa, the patterned paper helped with my minutes.
Beautiful card! Love your clouds!
Sure hope you could sleep after that adrenaline fix. Between the game and you speed crafting you had it going on. The liquid products sure add that final touch.
LOL…I did calm down after this card.
Gorgeous!! And done in 7 minutes – awesome!!
Gorgeous!! I really like those clouds. 7 minutes???? WOW!
Thanks, Gerry, the patterned paper helped cut down my time.
I’m quite impressed with your speedy card! Drying time should never count. Great job.
LOL, Golda, I’m actually surprised that I didn’t smoosh anything during the drying time.
Wow! What a result for seven minutes! I think using a piece of DSP to stamp the blossom on was the real wow factor in this: you got a lot of visual bang while using very little of your time allocation – very clever thinking! Thanks for joining us again at As You See it Challenge.
Thanks, Jan, I appreciate your comments and challenges.
You’ve got the strategy down pat now for these speed challenges, Gayle! That DSP was the perfect choice for the background to give your blossoms the design they needed to stand alone! Great stamping job, too! Thanks for keeping your adrenaline rushing with us at As You See It Challenges!
What a great job with your pretty flowers! That background paper is perfect! The coloring is just perfect and you even had time left over! Thanks for sharing this with us at As You See It!
Great work Gayle – you have these speed challenges sussed! Using the DSP for the background was a great way to add detail without sacrificing time and the perfect backdrop for your pretty flowers. Thanks for sharing with us over at As You See It this week!
