It’s a new As You See It Challenge starting today.  This one is a color and speed challenge.  You have 10 minutes to start and complete your card.  You will need to state your remaining time in the blog post.  You are allowed to prep your work area beforehand so that all of your supplies are handy before you start.

#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!

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.

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.

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.
