Rejoice...

Happy Wednesday! I have a trio of CAS cards for the rest of the week.

Www.seejanestamp.com 1 (521x640)

This card started with the sentiment. I think it is absolutely beautiful so I wanted to keep the other images simple.

I used my Clearly Besotted With Love stamp set for the tulip and vase. Then I ran the card thru the linen impression plate.

Red And White...

So I actually had time to play along with the Paper Players again this week! Yay! It was a fun sketch challenge and when I saw it, I thought stencil!

I dug thru my stencils for a poinsettia stencil and using my embossing paste, created a panel on a piece of cherry cobbler.

Then I die cut a stitched circle, added a sentiment and a button and some twine. I love the contrast of the paste on the red!

Be Still...

Today’s card was made for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started by die cutting pattern paper with my mini scallop stitched square. I also die cut a piece of white cardstock and then added the sentiment.

I die cut the fishtail flag, added some twine, and layered everything according to the sketch.

SAF Starry Night...

So the starry night challenge was next and we were supposed to do some ink blending and watercoloring. As I didn’t have the heart to do the whole background, I opted to do just a small portion and love how it turned out.

Www.seejanestamp.com saf starry 1 (529x640)

I watercolored with some of the PTI inks and then added in some trees in the left corner. I added some drops of water and then dried the paper.

I die cut Lord three times and adhered together before placing on the card over some gold thread. I added a few sequins and the rest of the sentiment and was done!

Next – there’s gold in them in thar hills!


The Lord Is A Sun...

I whipped up this fun card for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge!

I added some pattern paper to a so saffron card base and then added a bit of black between the two pieces.

Www.seejanestamp.com fms 1 (531x640)

I stamped and die cut the sentiment and then adhered to the base.

Hope Perches...

Hello Wednesday! I have a super clean and simple card that I made for the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge. I ended up making two versions and you will see both!

I stamped this lovely sentiment that I purchased from Verve stamps a while ago. I was saving it for the right card. Then I added a simple die cut red bird to the sentiment. I love the impact the bird makes.

Www.seejanestamp.com cts 3 (579x640)

Www.seejanestamp.com cts 4 (640x435)

Then I went a bit crazy and sprayed some black ink on the background. I like both versions but the stark white appeals to me a bit more than the other. What do you think?

Www.seejanestamp.com cts 1 (559x640)

Thanks for stopping by today! I won’t be posting Thursday as I will have two posts on Friday. See you then!

Supplies: CS: PTI white. SU! cherry cobbler. Stamps: Verve hope perches. Dies: Memory box resting birds. PTI linen impression plate.


Retro Rubber Challenge #41 part two...

It’s the second week of the Retro Rubber Color Challenge to use red, white and blue. So I thought I would combine the color challenge with the sketch challenge at Paper Players.

RRCB 41

I die cut this pinking edge square with some nautical pattern paper to get my red, white and blue in. Then I stamped the sentiment and used a pierced oval to die cut and also die cut a real red fishtail.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb41 pp 1 (554x640)

I put everything together per the sketch and then decided the sentiment should sit jauntily to the right a bit. LOL! I added a bit of bling and was done.

Cast Thy Anchor...

Hello there! I am continuing my sailing theme with a super clean and simple card. I will be entering this in The Curtain Call challenge as well.

I started by stamping five real red stripes and then adding the sentiment. I am using the sketch from the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge that closed yesterday. I knew I wouldn’t make the cut but I loved the sketch and wanted to see what I could create!

Www.seejanestamp.com cts cc 1 (553x640)

I ran the single layer card thru the linen impression plate and added some bling.

Retro Rubber Challenge #39...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge! We are celebrating flowers in May!

RRCB 39

I started by stamping this old image of an iris. I always love to see the irises show up in the spring! I am not sure how long I have had the image – it came in a set of four flowers that I think I bought back in the mid 90’s.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 39 1 (536x640)

I clear embossed the image and then watercolored with my zig markers. I LOVE these markers! So worth the price – I have had them for several months but never used them! Shame on me!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 39 2 (640x330)

After watercoloring, I backed the image with a piece of perfect plum and then adhered to a soft stone base. I added a sentiment and was done.

Be sure to join us! Bust out your old flowers stamps, whip up a card, and link it up HERE!

Supplies: Watercolor paper. PTI soft stone. SU! perfect plum. Stamps: Iris stamp from stash. Reverse Confetti walk by faith. Other: Zig clean color markers.


Give Thanks...

Happy Monday! Today’s card was made for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge and for the Card Concept (clean and layered) inspiration challenge.

Www.seejanestamp.com fms cc 1 (640x529)

I started by stamping off the palm frond twice before stamping on the card front. Then I added the sentiment in full strength ink. I added a piece of black on one side and the pattern paper on the other.

Www.seejanestamp.com fms cc 2 (640x327)

I ran everything thru the linen impression plate (natch!) and layered everything on the card base. At the last minute I remembered I needed something in the upper right side so I added the candy dots.

I had just finished the first run of this card when I discovered red ink on my hand that I had smeared all over the card! So I did a quick redo and that is what you see here.
