Artsy Shapes For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  We have a great sketch for you to give a go. 

#163 11.17.17

I started by stamping a number of shaped images, chalking them up and then fussy cutting them out.

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

Celebrate...

Yep, another post today!  Today I am playing along with the Card Concept challenge.  The challenge is Rich Holiday and I am not sure if that is the interpretation I came up with but what the hay!

My card is super CAS by using a few random damask images in Christmas colors on the card.

I added the sentiment, ran the card thru the linen impression plate, and then added some rhinestones.

Falling For You...

Can you believe it?  I have a post that is unrelated to any of my design teams!  I am easing back into posting a little more regularly!

I created a card using the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.  It was quite an interesting one so I did my best with my interpretation.

I used a maple leaf stencil to create a fall background and then added a few random leaves.  Using some stickers, I created a sentiment and was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge #75...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color inspiration and the challenge image provides a lot of color choices!

RRCB 75

I started with this image from Clearly Gina K Always Autumn from 2014.  I used my colored pencils before adding the sentiment from Papertrey Ink’s Keep It Simple Thanksgiving (2014).

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 75 1 (640x545)

Using the sketch from Paper Craft Crew, I added some white jute ribbon and a couple of pieces of cardstock – early espresso and crushed curry.  The early espresso with the chevron cut outs was one of the scraps that I found that went perfectly with the sketch and color challenge.

I layered everything together and then added a few dots and pearls.

Autumn Leaves For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  We have a fun sketch that you should enjoy interpreting into an awesome card!

#162 11.3.17

I started by cutting three strips of paper and adhered to the card base.  I stamped a small leaf to take the place of the dot on the sketch.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 162 1 (546x640)

Then I die cut a rectangle using my new PTI brushed off rectangle dies.  Now that I have broken them out, I am going to be using them.  I love the shape you get!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 162 2 (640x469)

Then I stamped a larger leaf to represent the bottom square and the sentiment for the top square in the sketch.  I added a few dots in place of a ribbon.  After I put everything together, I wished I would have added some twine instead of the dots!

Welcome to a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  We have a fun sketch challenge this go around.

RRCB 74

I started by using a couple of my favorite stamp sets – Clearly Besotted Sunburst from 2015 and PTI Be from 2016.  I stamped three circle images in different colors and then added the words to each circle.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 74 1 (558x640)

I added the main sentiment before running thru the linen impression plate and backing the card front with pink cardstock and a kraft card base.

Scary Times For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge for As You See It and it’s a scary one!  The challenge is to make a scary card.  Now, I really don’t have a lot of scary stamps so I decided to make a sort of scary card.

#161 10.20.17

I don’t know about you, but if we run out of coffee at my house, it gets pretty scary.  Thus my scary card!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 161 1 (552x640)

I started by diecutting some patterned paper and then adhered to the card base.  I then die cut and stamped the coffee cup and popped up on the patterned paper.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 161 2 (640x471)

That’s it for today.  Good news – I am hoping to get back to posting on a regular schedule starting in November.  My craft cave has been getting cobwebs for lack of use and I am itching to get back in there.

#160 10.6.17

I found some really lovely fall paper and matching cardstock that I die cut before adhering to the card base.  I stamped a sentiment, cut down and flagged the end.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 160 1 (536x640)

I put everything together and finished with some rhinestones and enamel dots.  I had 1:47 remaining of my 10 minutes.  And I was panicked the whole time I was making the card!
