Retro Rubber Challenge #78...

It’s a new year and a new challenge at the Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge – white on white with the use of one neutral.

RRCB 78

I really struggled with this challenge until I finally came up with this beauty.  I used a quilted impression plate and a mini scallop rectangle to die cut this “quilt”.

I added a sentiment and then popped the quilt up on the white card base.  My sentiment stamp is from the 2008 Papertrey Ink Quilters Sampler sentiments.  I love this card!

January House Of Cards...

It’s a new month and a new challenge at House of Cards!  This month is mixed media and/or use the colors in the image.  I attempted to do a bit of both!

January Mixed Media Colors

I started with three quarter inch strips of coral, green and yellow.  I die cut a shape and then used embossing paste and a stencil to create a harlequin pattern on pink paper.

I added the sentiment and attached everything to a card base of crumbcake.

Brrrr...

Welcome to a new As You See It Challenge!  Since we are just about to the New Year, our theme is sparkle!  And what could be more sparkly than glitter?  Glitter…the gift that keeps on giving!

#166 12.29.17

I started by using some Bermuda Bay glitter paper and die cutting a hat. And now I officially have glitter everywhere on my table!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 166 1 (563x640)

I die cut a scalloped panel and ran it and the card base thru my linen impression plate.  I added the sentiment and then attached the glitter hat.  A cute white fuzzy ball added some dimension and kept the die cut from looking like a mailbox – lol!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 166 2 (640x469)

I popped the panel up on the card base and was done!  Be sure to join us!  Link up your sparkles HERE!

Christmas Leaves For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It and it’s a gorgeous sketch!

#165 12.15.17

I opted to use autumn leaves but in a Christmas style twist.  I used the Concord & 9th layering leaves and die cut them in mossy meadow, cherry cobbler, and old olive.  I die cut each one three times for added dimension and then adhered them together.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 165 1 (555x640)

I used some nice wintery paper and cut a couple of rectangles.  I layered everything together and finished off the card with a sweet sentiment and some dots and rhinestones.  I am quite tickled with how this card turned out!

Retro Rubber Challenge #77...

Welcome to the last Retro Rubber Challenge of 2017!  It’s a color inspiration challenge just in time for the holiday season.

RRCB 77

I went with clean and simple and opted to use the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 77 1 (640x483)

I stamped the tree from the PTI Layered Postmarks: Holiday (from 2012) in spring moss with the script in ripe avocado.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 77 2 (640x594)

I added the sentiment and then ran the card thru the linen impression plate.  I actually set out to make a layered card with an old truck and some trees.  That ended up in the garbage.  Sometimes the card in my mind is not what it is in reality!  LOL!

Retro AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  Join us for this fun color challenge!

#164 12.1.17

I started with a couple of brush trees in pool party and flirty flamingo.  These colors gave me a retro vibe so I had to add a few fifties style stars to make that retro look happen!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 164 1 (537x640)

I added the sentiment in pacific point and a few rhinestones and enamel dots.  A CAS card that would be easy to reproduce for all of your favorite friends and family!

Retro Rubber Challenge #76...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s Anything Goes!

RRCB 76

I opted to go with a Christmas theme and dug out this cute nutcracker stamp from Simon Says Stamp’s Retro Christmas (2015).  I colored him in with colored pencils and then die cut the image.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 76 1 (501x640)

I added the sentiment (I do like to do sideways sentiments) and a bit of twine and a few dots.  A strip of striped paper backed with some old olive was the final touch before I layered everything on an early espresso card base.

Then I die cut the flagged shape and the arch, added the sentiment and then a bit of hemp.
