Just Because

Retro Rubber Challenge 72...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  We have a fun travel themed challenge for you that requires you use a mode of transportation on your card.

RRCB 72

I immediately thought of my Simon Says Stamp Road Trip stamps that came out in 2014.  The station wagon took me back to when I was a kid and many a vacations that my family went on.

I colored the wagon ala National Lampoon’s Vacation style before die cutting and popping up on the card front.  I stamped an outline of the US underneath the card front and die cut a circle to show off the outline.

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.

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.

September House Of Cards...

It’s a new month and a new House of Cards Challenge!  You can either use the colors and/or text on your card.

Sept add text and or colors

I did a little of both.  I added a few images of French text from my SU! French Foliage stamp set and then added a sunflower.

Using my color pencils, I colored in the image before adding a sentiment and a bit of rust colored cardstock behind the image.  I attached everything to a card base of Sahara sand and was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge #70...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  This one has a back to school theme and let me tell you – it was a challenge for me!  I have very few school themed stamps!

RRCB 70

I did find a school image in my SU! Greeting Card Kids stamp set (circa 2011 or before).  I stamped the image on some schoolish paper and then colored with pencils.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 70 1 (585x640)

I added a sentiment from Paptertrey Ink (circa 2015) and then die cut the image using my SU! stitched and scalloped squares.
