Sketch Challenge

Retro Rubber Challenge #77...

Welcome to the last Retro Rubber Challenge of 2017!  It’s a color inspiration challenge just in time for the holiday season.

RRCB 77

I went with clean and simple and opted to use the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 77 1 (640x483)

I stamped the tree from the PTI Layered Postmarks: Holiday (from 2012) in spring moss with the script in ripe avocado.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 77 2 (640x594)

I added the sentiment and then ran the card thru the linen impression plate.  I actually set out to make a layered card with an old truck and some trees.  That ended up in the garbage.  Sometimes the card in my mind is not what it is in reality!  LOL!

Falling For You...

Can you believe it?  I have a post that is unrelated to any of my design teams!  I am easing back into posting a little more regularly!

I created a card using the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.  It was quite an interesting one so I did my best with my interpretation.

Www.seejanestamp.com cts 1 (531x640)

I used a maple leaf stencil to create a fall background and then added a few random leaves.  Using some stickers, I created a sentiment and was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge #75...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color inspiration and the challenge image provides a lot of color choices!

RRCB 75

I started with this image from Clearly Gina K Always Autumn from 2014.  I used my colored pencils before adding the sentiment from Papertrey Ink’s Keep It Simple Thanksgiving (2014).

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 75 1 (640x545)

Using the sketch from Paper Craft Crew, I added some white jute ribbon and a couple of pieces of cardstock – early espresso and crushed curry.  The early espresso with the chevron cut outs was one of the scraps that I found that went perfectly with the sketch and color challenge.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 75 2 (640x414)

I layered everything together and then added a few dots and pearls.

Autumn Leaves For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  We have a fun sketch that you should enjoy interpreting into an awesome card!

#162 11.3.17

I started by cutting three strips of paper and adhered to the card base.  I stamped a small leaf to take the place of the dot on the sketch.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 162 1 (546x640)

Then I die cut a rectangle using my new PTI brushed off rectangle dies.  Now that I have broken them out, I am going to be using them.  I love the shape you get!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 162 2 (640x469)

Then I stamped a larger leaf to represent the bottom square and the sentiment for the top square in the sketch.  I added a few dots in place of a ribbon.  After I put everything together, I wished I would have added some twine instead of the dots!

By using some lemon lime twist and tranquil tide inks and mixing them into embossing paste, I ran the paste over a stencil and waited for it to dry.
