As You See It

Retro AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  Join us for this fun color challenge!

#164 12.1.17

I started with a couple of brush trees in pool party and flirty flamingo.  These colors gave me a retro vibe so I had to add a few fifties style stars to make that retro look happen!

I added the sentiment in pacific point and a few rhinestones and enamel dots.  A CAS card that would be easy to reproduce for all of your favorite friends and family!

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

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!

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.

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!

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.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 158 2 (640x477)

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.

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