Going Grey For AYSI...

We have a new challenge at As You See It!  And it’s a fun one!  The challenge is to use shades of grey and complete your card in ten minutes.  As I have several weddings coming up this summer, I used this challenge to get one of the cards done!

#175 5.4.18

I stamped the bridal gown image and then die cut with a mini stitched scallop square.  I cut the soft stone piece down and ran the base of smokey slate, the card front and the mini square thru the linen impression plate.

I stamped the sentiment and backed with some smokey slate cardstock die cut using my washi tape dies.  I adhered everything together and was placing the final dot when the bell rang!  It startled me so much I just about ripped the dot back off the cardstock!  LOL!

May House Of Cards...

Happy May Day!  It’s a new challenge at House of Cards!  The challenge is to make a shaped card or use the colors in the image or both.

I opted to make a shaped card.  I started with a mini stitched scallop circle for my shape and quickly cut my card out.

Retro Rubber Challenge 85...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s a vintage theme so be inspired by the challenge image and create something vintage looking.

RRCB 85

I opted to use some vintage papers and stick with an antique color palate as well.  I cut several papers on the bias and then die cut them with a stitched rectangle.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 85 1 (560x640)

I added a sentiment from the Papertrey Ink choose me stamp set (2015) and a few pearls and was done!

Retro Rubber Challenge 84...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  We have an inspiration challenge to use either the color or items from the image on a card.

RRCB 84

I trotted out my trusty umbrella die and whipped up three umbrellas using the inspiration colors.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 84 1 (540x640)

I added the sentiment from the SU! weather together stamp set from 2016.  I love the font and the saying so much.  And yet, it’s the first time I have used the saying!  Shame on me!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 84 2 (640x522)

I adhered everything to white and then to a crumbcake card base.

Purples For AYSI...

We have a new challenge for you at As You See It with a fun sketch challenge!

#173 4.6.18

I opted to go with a monochromatic look and stayed with purple!  I stamped the background image with my SU! off the grid stamp.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 173 1 (546x640)

Then I die cut three Chandra stems and adhered them together but made sure they were a bit wonky when I put them together to add a bit of depth to them.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 173 2 (640x542)

I added a sentiment and some bling and was done!  Be sure to link up HERE to play along!

April House Of Cards...

I’m not fooling when I tell you it’s a new challenge at House of Cards!  The challenge is to either use florals in the corner or the colors or both.  Oh, and try to keep it clean and simple.  I am not sure how I did but I loved what I came up with!

April CAS Floral corner colors

I started with a base of early espresso that I ran thru the linen impression plate.  I added a couple of pieces of pattern paper that I backed with a bit of black.

Www.seejanestamp.com HOC April 1 (584x640)

I added this lovely sentiment and some pearls.  I did get some florals in the corner as well as some of the colors so I think I did pretty good!

Retro Rubber Challenge 83...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  We have an Anything Goes!

RRCB 83

I needed to make a birthday card for my mom.  It ended up being a bit more Christmasy feeling than I had intended but she loved it just the same!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 83 1 (552x640)

I started by using the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch and cut some assorted panels out of patterned paper and adhered to a piece of cream cardstock.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 83 2 (640x536)

I added the sentiment from Clearly Besotted Message Me (2016), ran everything thru the linen impression plate and then popped the cream cardstock up on a base of cream.  I finished it off with a bit of bling and a sweet epoxy heart for my mama!

Kindness...

It’s time for a new challenge at As You See It!  Amanda created a lovely color challenge to use smokey gray, tranquil tide and powder pink or equivalents to those colors.

#172 3.23.18

I started with a base of smokey slate that I ran thru my linen impression plate.  I added a die cut card front of white to house my sentiment.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 172 1 (640x540)

I die cut the word kindness out of tranquil tide and pink pirouette.  I layered together and adhered to the white die cut.  Unfortunately, no matter how I photographed my card, it is really hard to see the tranquil tide.  You just have to trust me!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 172 2 (640x416)

I added the quote and a few dots/rhinestones and was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge 82...

Welcome to our new challenge at Retro Rubber!  For the first time ever, we are doing a tic tac toe challenge where you use three elements either across, down or diagonally.

RRCB 82

I opted for green, die cut and twine.  All lovely elements.  I was going to make a St. Patrick’s Day card but I don’t have a clover leaf die.  Also, it’s hard to feel too happy about clover leafs (or anything springy – lol) when we still have 3-4 feet of snow on the ground.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 82 1 (567x640)

So I switched it up and made a birthday card.  I started with several leaf die cuts that I stacked together.  They have a bit of coppery/gold on the edges as this is a die that I ruined with some paint and the remaining paint clings to my cardstock.  It did add a bit of shimmer.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 82 2 (610x640)

I added the twine and adhered to the card front that I ran thru the linen impression plate.  I added the sentiment (from my 2016 Clearly Besotted Message Me stamp set) and layered the card front on the card base.

Confetti Rainbows For AYSI...

We have a new challenge at As You See It!  This challenge is to use every item in the challenge image on your card.  I find these challenges the hardest of all!  And I was quite stumped until I came up with this card.

#171 3.9.18

I started with a double layer of black cardstock for the wide/stripe element.  Then I die cut the word hello three times and adhered together for the one word.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 171 1 (568x640)

That left me with confetti, rainbow and stars.  I tried several different things until I finally remembered my SU! enamel dots and stars.  Presto magic – I have confetti of rainbow colored stars.  Whew!  I made it and kept it clean and simple to boot!
