Fill In The AYSI Blank...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It and it is a fill in the blank.  (that I got to create!)  My go to die or punch that I use most often is the linen impression plate.  But I think you all could have guessed that!  I love it because it adds a smidge of texture and makes the card feel a little more upscale.

#209 9.13.19

I did a one layer card so I could show off the linen plate.  I added snowflakes and circles in soft colors and then ran the card thru the linen plate.  Even though it is hard to see!

I stamped the sentiment, die cut it, and popped it up on the card.

It's always a bit difficult to see the texture from the linen plate so here is a picture of what it looks like.

Retro Rubber Challenge 119...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  We are all about fall colors and need to use red, orange and brown on our cards.

RRCB 119

I started by stenciling some fall leaves across my card in the required colors.  Then I added a bit of chocolate chip cardstock above and below the stencil to frame it in.

I die cut some leaves in red and orange, as well as one in dark yellow that I aged a bit using brown ink.  Finally I added the sentiment which is from the PTI keep it simple blessed sentiment set from 2017.

I started with a jumbo dot cover die and die cut the white card front and some dots from the three required colors.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 208 1 (568x640)

Then I popped up the white die cut and added my three colors.  I love that pop of color on all the white!  Finally, I stamped the sentiment and backed it with a piece of pretty peacock to add a bit more color.

Serenity...

It’s time for a new As You See It Challenge!  It’s a sketch challenge and I loved the sketch.

#207 8.16.19

I went super clean and simple by using my sentiment as the line and sentiment.  (does that make sense? lol!)  I added three birds to sit on part of the swoop in the serenity image.

My card is one layer and I used my linen impression plate for a bit of texture (naturally!).

Purples For AYSI...

We have a new speed challenge at As You See It!  These are fun!  The objective is to make a card in under 10 minutes.  You must make the card in shades of purple and report how much time you had left on the clock after you finished the card.

#206 8.2.19

I started with a base of gray granite which I ran thru the linen impression plate.  I felt I needed a neutral tone to balance all of the purple.  Then I diecut a piece of elegant eggplant and white after which I ran them thru the linen plate.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 206 1 (570x640)

Then I randomly stamped the images in three shades of purple: wisteria wonder, elegant eggplant and perfect plum.  I adhered the three pieces together and then stamped the sentiment.  Finally, I added pearls and rhinestones.

Retro Rubber Challenge 116...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber and it is a delightful tic tac toe.

RRCB 116

I bounced around for a while before finally deciding which row I was going to tackle.  I ended up with the pattern paper/romance/enamel dots or gems.  I started with a card base of balmy blue and added this sweet piece of butterfly pattern paper.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 116 1 (564x640)

Then I die cut and embossed the arch using my inspiration impression plate right after I added the sentiment.  My apologies if the impression plate is hard to see – it is various inspirational words.  It did not photo well at all!  My sentiment comes from my PTI ways to say I love you from 2017.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 116 2 (640x442)

I popped up the arch and then added my rhinestones and dots.

Beachy Times For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  LeAnne created this fun challenge for theme week which is Beaches!

#205 7.19.19

I dug out an old Lawn Fawn stamp set and created a very relaxing scene.  Who doesn’t want to be lying in a hammock on the beach?  Actually, the palm trees and hammock look like a smiling face.  LOL!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 205 1 (613x640)

I stamped the images and then used my chalks to add the color.  I die cut the image and ran thru the linen impression plate before adhering to the kraft card base.

Retro Rubber Challenge 115...

Welcome to a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s a color challenge for purple, yellow and green!

RRCB 115

I started with a purple card base and a piece of purple pattern paper that I arranged on half of the white card front.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 115 1 (558x640)

I stamped the image using elegant eggplant, garden green and daffodil delight.  Then I snuck the sentiment in next to the stem.  I used my PTI bitty bouquets stamp set that I have had since 2015 and also used the PTI ways to say hello stamp set (2017) for the sentiment.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 115 2 (640x611)
