Inspiration Challenge

Floral Blessings...

Today I am playing along with The Flower Challenge. Their challenge is to CASE a design team member. I opted to CASE Karren as I love her clean and simple style. Below is the challenge image and Karren’s card.

Stenciled Flower

Using a mixture of Altenew ocean waves and dusk inks, I stamped up this floral outline. Then I added a sentiment and ran thru the linen impression plate.

I dug out my diagonal scoring tool and scored some lines. This was my take on Karren’s stenciling. You can also see that I used her colors of blues and black on my image and sentiment.

I die cut the card front with a stitched rectangle and then popped it up on the card base. This was such a fun challenge to re-imagine a DT member! Great idea!!

Thanks for stopping by! I will be back next week!

Supplies: PTI white. Inks: Altenew ocean waves and dusk. Stamps: Rubbernecker bouquet. MFT cheerful blessings. Dies: PTI linen impression plate. MFT blueprint 13.

I started by running some watercolor paper thru my sheet music impression plate and then adding a few colors for a rainbow effect.

Then I punched some bitty butterflies in other rainbow colors and adhered them to the watercolor paper to give the full effect of a rainbow.

I added the sentiment and attached everything according to the sketch from the Fusion Challenge which also inspired the butterflies and music!

RRCB 57

Due to a pinched nerve in my back that happened last Friday, I am on the injured reserve list and did not get a card done for the challenge. It also sidetracked me from getting any cards done so I am not sure when I will have my next post! Please hang in there with me!

In the meantime, click HERE to go to the Retro Rubber site and see the AMAZING design team creations! They are really outstanding! Plus we have a great guest designer in Lynne Jardine!

Have a great week! I hope to be well enough to get some cards done for next week but at this time it is all up in the air! February has been an interesting month for me – with the crud and now my back – good gravy!

Happy Crafting!


A Little Something...

Today’s card was made for the Fusion Challenge and I married a bit of both images together.

I cut down a white cardfront, ran it thru the linen impression plate and added a sentiment. A couple pieces of pattern paper were added to the cardfront and then I added a bit of twine before adhering to a soft sky base.

I attached the mugs and was done! I used the sketch and some of the colors and mugs from the challenge image.

Retro Rubber Challenge #53 part two...

It’s the second week of the Retro Rubber Challenge so I whipped up a clean and simple card using colors inspired by the challenge.

RRCB 53

I die cut three hour glass dies in white, real red and garden green. All three colors had been run thru the linen impression plate first.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 53 3 (571x640)

I attached the white die to a crumbcake base and then added three red flags and three green flags. A sentiment finishes off the card.

Retro Rubber Challenge #53...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge! This is our last one for 2016! I can’t believe the year is almost over! This challenge is a color inspiration based on the picture in the challenge image.

RRCB 53

I used a palette of cream and white with just a smidge of red and green thrown in. I started with some white texture paste and a snowfall stencil. I added the paste to the cream cardstock that I had run thru the linen impression plate and cut down a bit to go on the white card base.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 53 1 (575x640)

I stamped the sentiment (circa 2015) and then added a die cut set of holly leaves and berries on the edge. Finally, I popped the sentiment up over the card front. I love the simplicity of the card with all that neutral and small pop of color.

I thought I would whip up a fall leaf wreath! Say that three times fast! I used the PTI twig wreath stamp set and got to work.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 47 1 (547x640)

I stamped the wreath and then added a variety of branches and some leaves. I added the sentiment and then trimmed the card front down to fit on the card base.

Www.seejanestamp.com olc 1 (519x640)

I busted out my brand new retro thank you stamps and set to work. I stamped a few images in retro colors and then added the sentiment.

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.

Www.seejanestamp.com birthday 2 (640x315)

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.

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

Supplies: CS: SU! white and calypso coral. Pattern paper from stash. Stamps: SSS wine aerobics. PTI KIS birthday. Dies: PTI linen impression plate. SSS wine aerobics. MFT double stitched rectangles. Inks: SU! calypso coral. Memento black.


Sunflowers...

I have been seeing beautiful sunflowers all over town and that inspired me to dig out a sunflower stamp and see what I could do with it.  I heat embossed the image in black on watercolor paper. And using distress inks, watercolored the image.

Www.seejanestamp.com 9 (548x640)

I cut down the paper and backed it with a piece of crushed curry and then adhered to a kraft base. The sentiment was chosen based on its length as I planned to stamp it up the side of the image and wanted something that would balance well.

Www.seejanestamp.com 10 (640x477)

I am entering my card in the Inspired By All The Little Things challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today! I am taking Friday off as well as the weekend so I will see you back here on Monday!

Supplies: CS: PTI kraft. SU! crushed curry. Watercolor paper. Stamps: Clearly Besotted miniature florals 2. Neat & Tangled Scandinavian prints.
