#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.

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!

Retro Rubber Challenge 72...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  We have a fun travel themed challenge for you that requires you use a mode of transportation on your card.

RRCB 72

I immediately thought of my Simon Says Stamp Road Trip stamps that came out in 2014.  The station wagon took me back to when I was a kid and many a vacations that my family went on.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 72 1 (553x640)

I colored the wagon ala National Lampoon’s Vacation style before die cutting and popping up on the card front.  I stamped an outline of the US underneath the card front and die cut a circle to show off the outline.

AYSI For The Birds...

It’s time for a new As You See It Challenge!  This challenge requires you to use five items on your card – stripes, circles, dark blue, brads and birds.  Now, this is harder than you imagine and the card I am posting today is my second attempt.  The first card will not see the light of day!  LOL!

#159 9.22.17

I started by stamping a circle in daffodil delight and some stripes in pink pirouette.  I added a die cut bird out of night of navy and then a sentiment followed by a night of navy brad.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 159 1 (569x640)

I used my mini stitched scallop rectangle to die cut and then popped it up on a night of navy base.  My first attempt included a bird cage, birds and a lot of stripes.  It was awful!  I am happier with this card and already have plans to send it to someone who could use a pick me up.

#158 9.8.17

I started by stamping the sentiment and die cutting the rectangle and running it thru the linen impression plate.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 158 1 (563x640)

By using some lemon lime twist and tranquil tide inks and mixing them into embossing paste, I ran the paste over a stencil and waited for it to dry.

I sponged the lemon lime and tranquil tide inks onto a white doily before layering everything according to the sketch.  A bit of linen thread finished off my card.

Retro Rubber Challenge #70...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  This one has a back to school theme and let me tell you – it was a challenge for me!  I have very few school themed stamps!

RRCB 70

I did find a school image in my SU! Greeting Card Kids stamp set (circa 2011 or before).  I stamped the image on some schoolish paper and then colored with pencils.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 70 1 (585x640)

I added a sentiment from Paptertrey Ink (circa 2015) and then die cut the image using my SU! stitched and scalloped squares.

#157 8.25.17

I started by using my SU! Paisleys and Posies stamps in three SU! colors – sweet sugarplum, berry burst and fresh fig.  Then I added a few in old olive.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 157 1 (542x640)

I stamped the sentiment (what a beautiful saying!) on white and backed it with some old olive.  I added the die cut paisley in sweet sugarplum and berry burst papers before adding a few rhinestones and glitter dots.  Everything was attached to a fresh fig card base.
