Blue Recipe

I enjoy scouring the internet looking for new recipes. During the pandemic shut down my girlfriends and I shared recipes constantly. If there was a popular one, like Swedish Apple Pie it was shared over and over because someone wanted to prepare it but couldn’t find the recipe. That’s when we started our girlfriend recipe book. I now have 4 recipe books. I must admit that I didn’t make all of these recipes but it sure was fun finding, collecting and sharing.

The As You See It Challenge is a recipe which includes: Flowers, Die cut, Bow, Frame and Shades of Blue. My card has multiple shades of blue, a blue floral background with the occasional yellow, a frame, a bow and multiple die cuts. My card recipe usesTaylored Expressions’ Blooming Botanical stamp & stencil set for the background, Frame in Frame 3 cutting plate for my outer frame, Versatile Vases for one of my many dies, Flower Market stamp & die set and Bows die as well as the sentiment. I did add a oval die cut vellum under my vase so it didn’t get lost on the background. I debated on the sentiment and finally decided to add it.

My card will be shared with
As You See It Challenge #299 – Recipe for Framed Flowers in Blue

Hopefully I didn’t miss any of the recipe and my card will be a successful entry. 🙂

Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care and be safe.

  1. Gayle this is just lovely – that colourful background is so cheery and the vellum is a great way to create a base that allows your flower vase to take centre stage. The yellow bow is the perfect finishing touch! Thanks for playing along with our recipe challenge over at As You See It this week!

  2. So very pretty!! I agree with Lisa, you cooked the recipe up perfectly. Love the blues and yellow.

    1. Thanks, Gerry, challenges like this really keep me focused on including all ingredients.

  3. So darling, Gayle! Love that stenciled background so much – so bright and cheery in the colors you chose! Love your featured stem, too! Thanks so much for playing at As You See It!

  4. Love the blues with the yellow! And you did a great job with all the necessary ingredients for this challenge!! Beautiful card! (Love your story about your recipe swaps/books as well!)

    1. Thanks, Lisa, it was fun to use all the ingredients and the recipe trade kept us all sane during the pandemic shutdown.

  5. I think you’ve cooked up a storm with this one, Gayle. Is the pandemic how your Stamping Buddies formed too? If so, both are pluses from a bleak time. This one is anything but bleak with those bright blues, offset with cherry yellow. Lovely use of the frames too. Thanks for joining in with us again at As You See It.

    1. Thans so much for stopping in a commenting. Actually the Stamp Buddies was formed by Bonnie. We were all looking for a blog from our Gina K Designs StamptV days.

  6. This is lovely Gayle. Perfect for the challenge and I like the touch of yellow amongst the blues. The vellum behind your vase was inspired as it makes it a real focal point that may have been a bit lost otherwise.

    1. Thanks, Johanna, I like this kind of challenge especially when I don’t forget any of the ingredients.

  7. So pretty, Gayle. The vellum in the frame behind your vase & flower really helps them to stand out from the background. Love the way you’ve interpreted my recipe and thanks for joining us at As You See It Challenge

  8. I love your cheery stenciled background, Gayle, but also how you’ve allowed the vellum to soften it so that your focal point stands out. I’m intrigued by your vase. It looks a bit translucent so I’m wondering if you used vellum or something like it for the vase! Thanks for cooking up our recipe at As You See It Challenges!

  9. The vellum was a great way to give some attention to your flower and vase. This is a beautiful card with wonderful colors. Fantastic job coloring with the stencils.
