For The Birds For House Of Cards...

Welcome to our new challenge at House of Cards! This month you get to use either a bird on your card, the colors or both.

September 2016 Bird and or colors

I tried a mix of both. I stamped the image and watercolored the birds in peach and grays. I added a bit of grass and sky and then die cut using a double stitched oval.

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc sept 1 (565x640)

I popped my image up on a piece of pattern paper, added some twine and put everything together – with just a smidge of bling.

Thanks For The August House Of Cards...

Welcome to a new challenge at the House of Cards! This month our challenge is to have you use twine and/or these lovely colors on a card for us!

August 2016 Twine and or colors

It took some doing but I came up with a card I liked that incorporated both the colors and the twine. I started by stamping the large flower in sweet blush with autumn rose accents and the smaller flower (which you can’t see very well due to the sentiment) in autumn rose with sweet blush accents. I added the centers in bright yellow.

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc aug 1 (541x640)

To create my card, I die cut this dotted circle around the flowers then added the sentiment. For the sentiment, I stamped on white and used the washi label punch to create. I added a bit of twine because I was just feeling that it went well with the images and colors.

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc aug 2 (640x427)

I put everything together using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

Be sure to play along with us this month! Just link up your card HERE!

Supplies: CS: PTI white. Inks: PTI autumn rose, sweet blush and bright buttercup. Memento black. Dies: MFT stitched dotted circles. PTI linen impression plate. SU! washi label punch. Stamps: PTI some like it hot. SU! another thank you. Other: SU! linen thread.


Cheers For The House Of Cards July Challenge...

Welcome to a new month long challenge at the House of Cards! Our challenge is to use either the colors in the challenge image and/or fruit or drink.

July 2016  Fruit or drink and or colors

Well, it didn’t take me long to decide on drink – as in white wine – my favorite drink of the summer! I made a cute tag today instead of a card. So I die cut the tag base in kraft. Then I added some bright washi tape to white card stock and cut out the second tag.

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc jul 1 (486x640)

I stamped the sentiment and ran both pieces of the tag thru my linen impression plate. To make my wine glass, I die cut the white wine glass out of linen vellum paper and added a bit of daffodil delight for the wine. Then I popped it up on the tag.

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc jul 2 (603x640)

I added some bling and twine and was done! Be sure to play along with us and link up your cards HERE!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies: PTI kraft, white and linen vellum. SU! daffodil delight. Stamps: PTI uncorked. Dies: PTI linen impression plate, uncorked and tag sale 9. Other: Rhinestones, twine and linen thread. Memento black ink.

I started by stamping these fun tulips in two shades of pinks and then ran the image thru the fishtail flag.

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc apr 1 (538x640)

I die cut two other flags, one in vanilla and one in script paper. I layered them and attached to the card base. I debated for a long time about a sentiment and, in the end, left the front blank.

2 HOC February 2016 shaped cards no squares or rectangles

So in honor of Valentine’s Day, I made a heart!

I started by die cutting a heart shape out of pink pirouette cardstock. Then I die cut a smaller heart out of white which I inked up a bit with real red, pink pirouette and a little white ink.

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc feb 1 (616x640)

I ran this heart thru my SU! happy hearts embossing folder to add some texture and then popped it up on the larger heart.  I stamped this cute sentiment and added it to the hearts along with some bling and a candy dot!

House of Cards January Challenge...

Happy New Year! Can you believe it is 2016? And that it is time for a new House of Cards challenge? This month’s challenge is to use the colors in the challenge image, use embossing, or do both!

1 HOC January 2016 use embossing and or colors

I received some fun embossing folders for Christmas, courtesy of my niece! And the tree trunks embossing folder was calling my name for this card. I dug around in my stash and discovered this cute Lawn Fawn stamp and die set that I received as a freebie awhile back.

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc jan 16 3 (560x640)

So I stamped the lil guy and colored him up with some pencils and gamsol. This was my first time using the gamsol (odorless mineral spirits) and a blending stump and it was super easy to use. I usually use a blending pencil and blend until my hand wants to fall off. This was way easier – no effort at all!

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc jan 16 4 (640x443)

After coloring, I die cut Pepe and popped him up on the embossing and added the sentiment. I couldn’t resist adding a few hearts at the last minute. He reminds me of Pepe Le Pew and his undying love for his lady friend Penelope. I loved those cartoons as a kid!

Now it’s up to you! Be sure to play along this month! Click HERE to link up your card!

  December Blog Hop

I was inspired by the colors in this photo.  I think the pinks mixed with the kraft looks gorgeous!  I started by using one of my favorite Great Impressions stamps.  I just adore how the penguin peeks out of the gift box!  I used a variety of colors that I drew from the inspiration photo and the pattern paper.  After I colored my little penguin, I layered him up on some pink and aqua paper.

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc dec 1 (523x640)

I added some pearls and candy dots to mimic the confetti pattern in the paper.  And then a layer of pink to the card front which I popped up on kraft.  I am literally tickled pink with this card!
