Autumn

Falling For You...

Can you believe it?  I have a post that is unrelated to any of my design teams!  I am easing back into posting a little more regularly!

I created a card using the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.  It was quite an interesting one so I did my best with my interpretation.

I used a maple leaf stencil to create a fall background and then added a few random leaves.  Using some stickers, I created a sentiment and was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge #75...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color inspiration and the challenge image provides a lot of color choices!

RRCB 75

I started with this image from Clearly Gina K Always Autumn from 2014.  I used my colored pencils before adding the sentiment from Papertrey Ink’s Keep It Simple Thanksgiving (2014).

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 75 1 (640x545)

Using the sketch from Paper Craft Crew, I added some white jute ribbon and a couple of pieces of cardstock – early espresso and crushed curry.  The early espresso with the chevron cut outs was one of the scraps that I found that went perfectly with the sketch and color challenge.

I layered everything together and then added a few dots and pearls.

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!

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!

I inked up the leaf in several fall colors and stamped on the cardstock. I added the sentiment and then used a stitched rectangle to die cut the card front.

Retro Rubber Challenge #51...

Welcome to the new Retro Rubber Challenge! This challenge is a color inspiration challenge with a thankful theme thrown in.

RRCB 51

I started with the wheat image from the Stampin’ Up! set Truly Grateful. It’s been out since at least 2013. I stamped it in crushed curry and then added the sentiment from the PTI Autumn Hills set (circa 2012).

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 51 1 (527x640)

After die cutting the card front using a stitched rectangle, I layered it on two other stitched rectangles. I wanted to make sure I put all the colors in so I added a few strips underneath everything.

A Yellow Leaf...

Happy Monday! I am back with a super CAS card for you!

Layered Up For House Of Cards...

Welcome to a new House of Cards Challenge! This month we want you to make a layered card, use these lovely colors or both! I opted to go with a layered card but use fall colors instead.

November Lots of layers and or colors

I die cut stitched panels in more mustard and cajun craze. Then I die cut a fishtail flag out of white and a layer of printed vellum.

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc nov 1 (535x640)

A Fall Rainbow...

It’s Wednesday and time for me to join the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge. I was searching thru my stencils when I happened upon this brand new retro circles stencil from Stamplorations. I had forgotten that I had this so I decided to use it to do a fall rainbow!

Using a cotton ball (someday I will spring for some sponge daubers!) and a variety of inks I got started. I started on the right with cajun craze, added crushed curry, some pumpkin pie and finished up with old olive.

Www.seejanestamp.com cts 1 (515x640)

I added the sentiment and then ran the card thru the linen impression plate. Sorry – I am so hooked on that thing that someone may need to stage an intervention! LOL!
