Retro Rubber Challenge 95...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  For this challenge you can use the colors, the images, a school theme or a mix of them.

RRCB 95

I went with the school theme when I actually started out planning to use apples.  But I found the fun pattern paper and went with it.

I backed some pattern paper with solid cardstock and adhered to the white card base.  Then I used the ABC image from the SU! bookcase builder stamp set from 2017 to stamp a background.

I opted for a repeat pattern with different inks and then added some twine across the top.  Just a fun little fact, the surface that I use in my photos is actually an old school desktop complete with pencil tray and ink well (which you can't see).

The Basics For AYSI...

We have a fun new challenge at As You See It!  This challenge is called back to basics – and it is what it says – paper, ink, and stamps.  That’s it!

#184 9.7.18

I love a great clean and simple card.  In my first holiday card of the season, I used green, red and black inks.  Can’t get any more clean and simple than that!

I stamped the images in the bottom corner to leave all that lovely white space!  On which I would normally use my linen impression plate – but not today!

September House Of Cards...

Welcome to a new challenge at House of Cards!  As always, we have a fun challenge with making either a birthday card, using the colors or both.

September Birthday theme and or colors

My apologies to my teammates and to you for the late post today!  You know when you wake up in the middle of the night and wonder what day it is?  And then remember you were supposed to have a card made and a post up for today?  Yep!  That was me!  But better late than never!

Www.seejanestamp.com Sept HOC 1 (580x640)

I went for the birthday card with a bit of the colors thrown in.  I dug out some of my funky patterned paper and adhered to a base of white.

I accidently shorted the striped piece but I love the result – it adds a bit more something something to the card.  I added the sentiment and then ran the card through the linen impression plate.

On The Go For AYSI...

We have a new challenge at As You See It that starts today!  Once again, Amanda created a fun and challenging sketch!

#183 8.24.18

I started by adding a thin piece of black cardstock to my white card base.  I thought this would be a nice substitute for the ribbon in the sketch.

Then I added three suitcases in one of my favorite colors – lemon lime twist!  I added the sentiment and then ran the card thru my linen impression plate.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 183 2 (640x396)

These bags remind me of bags on the airport baggage carousel – except in better shape!  LOL!  The sentiment is a fun addition – because seriously – who doesn’t love going to see Grandma and Grandpa!

Retro Rubber Challenge 93...

A new challenge at Retro Rubber begins today!  We have a fun tic tac toe challenge!

RRCB 93

I opted for the die cut/stripes/bird combo.  I started with a piece of perfect plum that I ran thru my stripes embossing folder.  Then I die cut a sweet little bird out of raspberry ripple.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 93 1 (583x640)

I stamped the sentiment (from PTI Summer Hills 2013) and then die cut with my stitched wonky dies.  I adhered the plum to the card base of crumbcake and then popped up the sentiment before adding some dots/pearls/rhinestones.

Kiwis For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  We have a fun sketch for you to try.

#182 8.10.18

I started with a base of white.  I added a piece of white cardstock that I die cut a curved edge into and then backed it with a piece of lemon lime twist that I cut a curved edge into as well.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 182 1 (537x640)

I added the kiwi pattern paper to the base before layering the white/lemon lime twist combo.

Patterns For House Of Cards...

The first day of August means it’s a new challenge at House of Cards.  The challenge for this month is to use pattern paper, the colors in the challenge image, or both.

August Patterned Paper and or colors

I opted to use pattern papers for this challenge.  I found some lovely coordinating papers and cut strips that I adhered to a base of lost lagoon.

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc august 1 (530x640)

I debated about how to add a sentiment and finally landed on using a strip of cardstock and attaching it to the bottom of the card.  I feel like it gives a bit of weight to all of the patterns.

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc august 2 (640x636)

A few rhinestones for some sparkle and I was done.

Obsessing Over AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s time to confess what I am currently obsessed with.  Easy peasy…pattern paper.  I love to hoard it and think about using it.  LOL.

#181 7.27.18

I found some paper that looks like I cut strips and added together when in reality it was a piece of pattern paper already sorted into strips.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 181 1 (640x537)

I die cut a piece and then backed with lost lagoon.  I wrapped some cantaloupe twine around the cantaloupe base and then popped the pattern paper up on it.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 181 2 (640x410)

A sweet sentiment that nods to the travel theme in the paper finishes off the card.
