Retro Rubber Challenge 97...

We are starting a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s a tic tac toe courtesy of Jan Clothier.  I puzzled a bit on this one and finally went for the bottom row of animals, windows and circles.

RRCB 97

I rolled the window and circles together by die cutting a stitched circle in the card front that I popped up on the card base.

Before adding the card front, however, I stamped this sweet puppy and colored with my pencils.  It is from the SU! Bella & Friends.  This stamp set came out in 2016 and I purchased it as soon as I saw it that year.

I added a bit of chalk around the image to ground the little guy and then stamped the sentiment on the card front.  I love the saying and always think of Toy Story when I see it.  And now I am humming the tune.

Frightful Halloween For AYSI...

We have a new challenge at As You See It!  A fun sketch that you can do a lot of things with!

#186 10.5.18

I opted for my first Halloween card of the year.  Using pattern paper I created a number of flags and adhered to the white card base.

I added the sentiment and a bit of thick twine as per the sketch!

Autumn Flowers For HOC...

Welcome to the October House of Cards Challenge.  Use either the colors in the challenge image, autumn flowers or both.

October Autumn Flowers and or colors

As usual, I did a smidge of both.  I started with a sunflower that I stamped in daffodil delight and peekaboo peach.  I love the depth that I get from the peach ink.

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc oct 1 (597x640)

I added the leaves and the sentiment before drawing a line and dots in the opposite corner to balance the card.  Finally, I ran through the trusty linen impression plate.

Retro Rubber Challenge 96...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber with a fun sketch by Claire Grantham!

RRCB 96

I love a great sketch so I went to town with a Christmas card.  Using pattern paper and cardstock I created the bulk of the sketch.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 96 1 (640x563)

I die cut three threes and a circle and then arranged according to the sketch.  That was when I realized I forgot about the sentiment!  So I went for it and just stamped on the patterned paper.  The sentiment is from my trusty 2016 Clearly Besotted Message Me set.

Blues For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  I love a good color challenge and this is it!  Use dapper denim, Bermuda bay and lemon lime twist on your card.

#185 9.21.18

I started by slanting a piece of dapper denim that I topped with a slice of white card stock and Bermuda bay across my card base.  I liked how the white separated those colors and makes the blue kind of float.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 185 1 (556x640)

I die cut some wheat using the dapper denim and lemon lime twist and adhered to the card.  Finally, I added a sentiment.

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.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 95 1 (582x640)

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.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 95 2 (640x513)

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!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 184 1 (595x640)

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.

Www.seejanestamp.com Sept HOC 2 (640x352)

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.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 183 1 (640x522)

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.
