RRCB 84

I trotted out my trusty umbrella die and whipped up three umbrellas using the inspiration colors.

I added the sentiment from the SU! weather together stamp set from 2016.  I love the font and the saying so much.  And yet, it’s the first time I have used the saying!  Shame on me!

I adhered everything to white and then to a crumbcake card base.

Purples For AYSI...

We have a new challenge for you at As You See It with a fun sketch challenge!

#173 4.6.18

I opted to go with a monochromatic look and stayed with purple!  I stamped the background image with my SU! off the grid stamp.

Then I die cut three Chandra stems and adhered them together but made sure they were a bit wonky when I put them together to add a bit of depth to them.

April House Of Cards...

I’m not fooling when I tell you it’s a new challenge at House of Cards!  The challenge is to either use florals in the corner or the colors or both.  Oh, and try to keep it clean and simple.  I am not sure how I did but I loved what I came up with!

April CAS Floral corner colors

I started with a base of early espresso that I ran thru the linen impression plate.  I added a couple of pieces of pattern paper that I backed with a bit of black.

Www.seejanestamp.com HOC April 1 (584x640)

I added this lovely sentiment and some pearls.  I did get some florals in the corner as well as some of the colors so I think I did pretty good!

Retro Rubber Challenge 83...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  We have an Anything Goes!

RRCB 83

I needed to make a birthday card for my mom.  It ended up being a bit more Christmasy feeling than I had intended but she loved it just the same!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 83 1 (552x640)

I started by using the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch and cut some assorted panels out of patterned paper and adhered to a piece of cream cardstock.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 83 2 (640x536)

I added the sentiment from Clearly Besotted Message Me (2016), ran everything thru the linen impression plate and then popped the cream cardstock up on a base of cream.  I finished it off with a bit of bling and a sweet epoxy heart for my mama!

Kindness...

It’s time for a new challenge at As You See It!  Amanda created a lovely color challenge to use smokey gray, tranquil tide and powder pink or equivalents to those colors.

#172 3.23.18

I started with a base of smokey slate that I ran thru my linen impression plate.  I added a die cut card front of white to house my sentiment.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 172 1 (640x540)

I die cut the word kindness out of tranquil tide and pink pirouette.  I layered together and adhered to the white die cut.  Unfortunately, no matter how I photographed my card, it is really hard to see the tranquil tide.  You just have to trust me!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 172 2 (640x416)

I added the quote and a few dots/rhinestones and was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge 82...

Welcome to our new challenge at Retro Rubber!  For the first time ever, we are doing a tic tac toe challenge where you use three elements either across, down or diagonally.

RRCB 82

I opted for green, die cut and twine.  All lovely elements.  I was going to make a St. Patrick’s Day card but I don’t have a clover leaf die.  Also, it’s hard to feel too happy about clover leafs (or anything springy – lol) when we still have 3-4 feet of snow on the ground.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 82 1 (567x640)

So I switched it up and made a birthday card.  I started with several leaf die cuts that I stacked together.  They have a bit of coppery/gold on the edges as this is a die that I ruined with some paint and the remaining paint clings to my cardstock.  It did add a bit of shimmer.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 82 2 (610x640)

I added the twine and adhered to the card front that I ran thru the linen impression plate.  I added the sentiment (from my 2016 Clearly Besotted Message Me stamp set) and layered the card front on the card base.

Supplies:  CS:  SU! garden green and white.  Stamps:  CB Message Me (2016).  Dies:  PTI linen impression plate and leaf silhouettes.  Other:  SU! linen thread.


Confetti Rainbows For AYSI...

We have a new challenge at As You See It!  This challenge is to use every item in the challenge image on your card.  I find these challenges the hardest of all!  And I was quite stumped until I came up with this card.

#171 3.9.18

I started with a double layer of black cardstock for the wide/stripe element.  Then I die cut the word hello three times and adhered together for the one word.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 171 1 (568x640)

That left me with confetti, rainbow and stars.  I tried several different things until I finally remembered my SU! enamel dots and stars.  Presto magic – I have confetti of rainbow colored stars.  Whew!  I made it and kept it clean and simple to boot!

March House Of Cards...

March is coming in like a lion around here and it’s also a new challenge at House of Cards.  The challenge is to use colored pencils on dark cardstock and/or the colors in the challenge image.

March Colored Pencils on dark card colors

As usual, I did a bit of both.  I stamped the image in crumbcake ink on crumbcake cardstock and then colored with my pencils.

Www.seejanestamp.com march hoc 1 (517x640)

I added a popped up sentiment and some pearls to finish off the card.

Retro Rubber Challenge 81...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  We have a sketch for you to try out!

RRCB 81

I started with a scooter from the SU! On The Grow stamp set from 2011.  I used my chalks to color in the scooter and flowers.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 81 1 (563x640)

I die cut the image and then layered on a couple of die cut panels.  I added the sweet sentiment as who wouldn’t like a little happy mail of flowers!

Friendship...

It’s a new challenge for As You See It!  I love Amanda’s sketches and this one is no different!

#170 2.23.18

I opted for a bit of a different take by using buttons as my square and round panels.  It’s just how I saw it!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 170 1 (527x640)

I started by stamping this lovely friendship sentiment and then adding the buttons, thread and dots.  I popped one of the buttons up a bit on the other for more of a textural feel.
