As You See It

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!

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.

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!

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.

I found the “sweet” sentiment and stamped it on a washi tape die cut that I popped up over the kiwis.  I added the button with some twine and 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.

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

Fresh For AYSI...

Welcome to a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s theme week and the theme is fresh!

#178 6.15.18

I stole directly from the image and did a “sweet” little card with strawberries.  I stamped the image in wild wasabi and Sahara sand and then colored in with my pencils.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 178 1 (566x640)

I die cut the image and then popped up over a stripe of pattern paper and cream cardstock.  I added the sentiment and was done!

Five For Five For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  Amanda has given us a challenge to use five things on a card – and these were a bit tough to put together!

#177 6.1.18

I started with a single tree that I die cut into a square.  Two of the five down!  I ran the card front thru a woodgrain embossing folder and then added a masculine sentiment.  Four down, one to go!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 177 1 (596x640)

Finally, I added the card front to a navy card base and the challenge was complete.  A clean and simple card for Father’s Day!

Going Grey For AYSI...

We have a new challenge at As You See It!  And it’s a fun one!  The challenge is to use shades of grey and complete your card in ten minutes.  As I have several weddings coming up this summer, I used this challenge to get one of the cards done!

#175 5.4.18

I stamped the bridal gown image and then die cut with a mini stitched scallop square.  I cut the soft stone piece down and ran the base of smokey slate, the card front and the mini square thru the linen impression plate.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 175 1 (575x640)

I stamped the sentiment and backed with some smokey slate cardstock die cut using my washi tape dies.  I adhered everything together and was placing the final dot when the bell rang!  It startled me so much I just about ripped the dot back off the cardstock!  LOL!
