Then I added a piece of ombre paper behind the circles. A few dots, bling, and a sentiment and I was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge #56...

It’s time for a new Retro Rubber Challenge! We are all about the birthdays for this challenge and if you are like me, you never have a birthday card handy!

  RRCB 56

I started by stamping these layered flowers in pool party and Bermuda bay. Then I added a few crushed curry and delightful Dijon sprinkles. The flower images are from Rubbernecker that I have had at least 3 or 4 years and my sentiment stamp is one I have had since 2014.

After I added the sentiment, I ran the card front thru the linen impression plate and then die cut using a stitched rectangle. I decided the pattern paper needed a bit more flair and die cut it using a mini scalloped rectangle. I layered everything together and added the final touches of dots and rhinestones.

Birthday Carousels...

Today I have a quick card that I made for the Fab Friday Challenge.

I started with some designer paper from the SU! cupcakes and carousels pattern pack and made 3X3 squares that I layered with very vanilla. I also cut a 3X3 square of so saffron that I backed with very vanilla as well.

I layered these up and added a sentiment and button to follow the sketch. Very clean and layered!

Watercolored Avant Garden...

Happy Monday! Today’s card was made for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge and I had some fun playing with a new stamp set.

I used images from the SU! Avant Garden stamp set and did a bit of watercoloring. First I stamped the flowers with a combination of so saffron and peekaboo peach for the lower flower and peekaboo peach and calypso coral for the upper flower. I used old olive for the stems and leaves.

Www.seejanestamp.com fms 1 (558x640)

I stamped the images on watercolor paper and then used a small paintbrush and some water and squished the ink around to get a watercolor look. A bit of marina mist was used around the flowers although that is hard to see.

Www.seejanestamp.com fms 2 (640x444)

I did some random ink spatters across the flowers and then added some pattern paper as per the sketch. A sentiment and some enamel dots finished off the card. Give this method of watercoloring a try. It’s easy and makes you feel like you are an artist who freehanded these images!

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to pop in tomorrow!

Supplies: CS: Watercolor paper. SU! crumbcake and cupcakes and carousels dsp. Stamps: SU! avant garden. Inks: SU! so saffron, peekaboo peach, calypso coral, old olive and marina mist. Memento black. Other: SU! enamel dots.


Joy Of The Journey...

Happy Thursday! I used a sentiment that I was given last year for my birthday.  The sentiment is beautiful – it truly expresses how I feel about my best friends. So I opted to let it shine on its own.

Then I did a bit (OK a lot!!) of splattering with some of my favorite colors and finished off with a few enamel dots.

Fall Birthdays...

Hello Monday! Today I am playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge and came up with a fall themed birthday card.

I started by stamping a variety of leaves that are multi layered stamps. I love stamps that allow you to give depth to an image without doing anything. Just adding another stamp in a darker color!

Www.seejanesetamp.com fms 1 (530x640)

I added the birthday sentiment and then using a curved die, cut a lovely curve in the card front and in the cajun craze layer as well. After I adhered the card front to the base, I decided to continue the curved feel on the base.

A Fall Birthday...

Happy Monday! My nephew is excited that today is Monday because it is his birthday! He is my youngest nephew and I can’t believe how fast the time is going. So I thought I would make him a card that is a bit more grown up as he is in his teen years now.

I started with the fabulous sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I stamped three leaves in fall colors and then added the sentiment.

I ran the card front thru the linen plate and then die cut the stitched fishtail shape. I added the enamel dots and adhered to a kraft card base.

Happy Birdday...

It’s Wednesday and time for the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge!

I needed a birthday card for a coworker and thought this sketch would be a fun one to use. I stamped the leaf in rich cocoa ink and then colored in the leaves with pear pizzazz and wild wasabi.

Wine For The Birthday Girl...

It’s Thursday already and here I am wondering where the week went! For once I am early and have a birthday card done for a friend of mine who will celebrate next week. She loves wine and so I had to make a wine inspired card.

Www.seejanestamp.com birthday 1 (540x640)

I started by stamping a wine opener in calypso coral and then die cutting. I also die cut a double stitched rectangle and adhered to the card base along with a stripe of pattern paper.

I popped up the wine opener and added the sentiment. I am entering this card in the Inspired By All The Little Things and Fab Friday.
