Retro Rubber Challenge 192...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a tic tac toe and I opted for the nautical/pattern paper/blue.

RRCB 192

I started by stamping the logbook, ship and anchor in night of navy.  These images are from SU! The Open Sea from 2013.  I die cut the ship and backed with a scalloped circle using night of navy cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from Papertrey Ink’s Get Lost (2014) and then layered everything together.  I was admiring my work when I realized I left off the pattern paper!  So I added a strip at the bottom and was done.

Roses For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a sketch challenge!

I started by stamping and coloring some of the roses from the SU! Happiness Abounds stamp set.  I die cut them and then die cut some white card stock for the sketch.

I added a piece of petal pink under the white card front, stamped the sentiment and then layered all together.  I love the peekaboo die cut and think it adds a bit of interest that brightens up the card.

I adhered to the card base and was planning to add some bling until I checked the time.  I had about 5 seconds left so I didn’t bother!  Time was 9 minutes and 55 seconds.

Retro Rubber Challenge 189...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge and celebrates colors of the 80s.  We need to use three of these colors – muted mauve, pink, blue, tan or gray.

RRCB 189

I opted to go with blue, pink and tan and created my own plaid design.  Once I had it done – I thought that is a lot of plaid!  So I cut down a piece and decided to show it off thru a chevron cut out die.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 189 1

I ran the card base of Sahara sand thru the linen plate, added some pink ribbon and attached the chevron/plaid over it.  I finished off the card with a sentiment from my Papertrey Ink It’s The Thought stamp set from 2016.

Distressed For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  We have a recipe challenge and are charged with using watercolor, floral stamps, bright colors, pattern paper and a punch/die.

#281 8.12.2022

I started by watercoloring a background of bright pink.  I then stamped a black daisy image on it.  It came out distressed looking so when life gives you lemons…I decided to embrace the distress!  I grabbed some kraft cardstock for the base and roughed up the edges a bit as well as die cutting the daisy image with my deckled edges die.  Using some granny apple green pattern paper, I die cut a stitched jumbo fishtail and attached to the card base.  I attempted to distress the edges a bit but the pattern paper is thin so I gave up quickly!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 281 1

I had great debate about adding a sentiment.  By happy accident, I found one that had a bit of a distress to it which I didn’t notice at first.  I stamped the sentiment and started to panic!  I thought I had moved the sentiment and messed up the whole card – but – that is exactly the way the stamp is supposed to look – old fashioned typed lettering that is a bit off.  See, happy accident!  I popped up the daisy image then added a bit of black bling and was done.

Christmas In July For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a fill in the blank!  My favorite Christmas in July Creation is … a Christmas card in non-traditional Christmas colors.

#280 7.29.2022

I started with my stamp set from The Greetery and stamped all the flowers in bright tropical colors.  I did the greens in a traditional green and a bright green.

I die cut the hoop three times and layered together before adding a bit of twine at the top.  Finally, I die cut everything, layered on the hoop and then the card base and was done!  A fun bright tropical Christmas card for July!
