Retro Rubber Challenge #90...

Welcome to a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s a photo inspiration so you can use either the colors or the items in the photo to create your card.

RRCB 90

I opted for the colors, creating a bit of a patriotic theme with some stars and stripes but using a sentiment that is distinctly not patriotic.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 90 1 (578x640)

I added a few papers from my stash to a base of rustic cream cardstock and then die cut with a double stitched die.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 90 2 (627x640)

I added the sentiment from the Papertrey Ink choose joy stamp set from 2015 and a sweet arrow from the Simon Says Stamp choose happy stamp set from 2016.  I popped the whole thing up on a base of kraft and was done.

I Scream You Scream For July HOC...

Happy July 1st!  A new month and a new challenge at House of Cards.  Use a popsicle or other food item and/or the colors in the challenge image.

July Popsicle or Food Image and or colors

I found a scrap of this fun pattern paper and decided to let it do all the talking.  So I die cut it using a stitched rectangle and popped it up on a base of crumbcake.

Then I stamped the sentiment and and die cut it with my washi tape die and backed with a piece of melon mambo.  I added some fun twine at the top for interest!

Retro Rubber Challenge #89...

We have a new challenge at Retro Rubber this week and I am playing along!  LOL!  I have missed the last two challenges due to my work schedule.

RRCB 89

I love a tic tac toe challenge and Jan Clothier put together a fun one.  I opted for a diagonal line of romantic occasions, pattern paper and gems.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 89 1 (588x640)

Keeping my card clean and simple, I die cut a piece of pattern paper and added a wedding sentiment from a 2015 Simon Says Stamp set.  A few enamel hearts later, and I popped the paper up on a card base of linen cream.

Five For Five For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  Amanda has given us a challenge to use five things on a card – and these were a bit tough to put together!

#177 6.1.18

I started with a single tree that I die cut into a square.  Two of the five down!  I ran the card front thru a woodgrain embossing folder and then added a masculine sentiment.  Four down, one to go!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 177 1 (596x640)

Finally, I added the card front to a navy card base and the challenge was complete.  A clean and simple card for Father’s Day!

Retro Rubber Challenge #86...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!!  It’s a challenge all about flowers!  It is May after all!

RRCB 86
My mom requested a card for a friend of hers who was turning 90.  She wanted purple and the numbers in cork, I wanted flowers.  I started by die cutting the numbers in cork and die cutting a mini scallop stitched rectangle.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 86 1 (557x640)

I stamped the bleeding heart in purple and then added the sentiment and cork numbers.  The stamps are from Papertrey Ink’s Garden Gate (2016) and Clearly Besotted Message Me (2016).

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 86 2 (640x490)

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.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 175 1 (575x640)

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!
