Theme Challenge

Retro Rubber Challenge #76...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s Anything Goes!

RRCB 76

I opted to go with a Christmas theme and dug out this cute nutcracker stamp from Simon Says Stamp’s Retro Christmas (2015).  I colored him in with colored pencils and then die cut the image.

I added the sentiment (I do like to do sideways sentiments) and a bit of twine and a few dots.  A strip of striped paper backed with some old olive was the final touch before I layered everything on an early espresso card base.

Celebrate...

Yep, another post today!  Today I am playing along with the Card Concept challenge.  The challenge is Rich Holiday and I am not sure if that is the interpretation I came up with but what the hay!

My card is super CAS by using a few random damask images in Christmas colors on the card.

I added the sentiment, ran the card thru the linen impression plate, and then added some rhinestones.

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.

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!

Scary Times For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge for As You See It and it’s a scary one!  The challenge is to make a scary card.  Now, I really don’t have a lot of scary stamps so I decided to make a sort of scary card.

#161 10.20.17

I don’t know about you, but if we run out of coffee at my house, it gets pretty scary.  Thus my scary card!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 161 1 (552x640)

I started by diecutting some patterned paper and then adhered to the card base.  I then die cut and stamped the coffee cup and popped up on the patterned paper.

That’s it for today.  Good news – I am hoping to get back to posting on a regular schedule starting in November.  My craft cave has been getting cobwebs for lack of use and I am itching to get back in there.

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.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 72 1 (553x640)

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.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 159 1 (569x640)

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.

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s Anything Goes!

RRCB 71

I started by stamping a couple of berry images in two shades of pink and green.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 71 1 (561x640)

Then I added the sentiment from the Reverse Confetti The Lord’s Strength stamp set from 2016.  I die cut and then layered over another diecut circle for a bit of interest.
