Scraps For AYSI...

It’s a new year and a new challenge at As You See It!  Not only did the year start over, but we refreshed our website with a cool new banner and challenge images!  The challenge today is a speed challenge (i.e. 10 minutes) to use your scraps.

#241 1.8.2021

Well, I have lots of scraps and they are organized with my cardstock so I just had to decide on colors and what kind of card I was going to make.  I opted for a thank you card that is going to my lovely aunt.  She recently wrote a memoir and gifted a copy to me.  I was happy I made the short list of her favorites and even happier to read the book!  I learned so much about her life!  She is a vibrant lovely person whom I adore!  Love you Aunt MaryAnn!

I stamped my sentiment and then added some scraps of blue around it.  I die cut the sentiment and then layered on some stripey pops of color.  Easy peasy!  I hope auntie loves my card as much as I love her book!

Retro Rubber Challenge 149...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge.  This is a Christmas challenge to be inspired by the photo.

RRCB 149

I started by die cutting this set of candles in white.  I knew I was going to use cherry cobbler as my base so I knew it would be striking!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 149 1 (640x539)

I added some black and white plaid before attaching the die cut.  Finally, I added the sentiment from my Papertrey Ink Keep It Simple Joyeux Noel stamp set from 2017.  A few stars and I was done.

Orange You Glad It Is AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It is a fill in the blank so here we go!  The color I avoid using the most is orange.

#239 11.20.20

I started by stamping the berry branch in soft suede and then added the berries in mango melody and pumpkin pie.  I die cut the berries and then popped them up on some orangey plaid and pumpkin pie.

I stamped the sentiment and then die cut using my washi tag dies before popping it up on the plaid.  The sentiment feels highly appropriate right now.

Retro Rubber Challenge 146...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  This time around we want you to use black, orange and white on a card.

RRCB 146

Because it’s October and with these colors, I would normally make a Halloween card but I just wasn’t feeling it.  Instead I opted to make a sweet romantic card.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 146 1 (640x538)

I started by adding some plaid paper to my white card base and then adding a strip of pumpkin pie and a curvy piece of black.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 146 2 (640x364)

I stamped the image and sentiment (both from Papertrey Ink Fancy Footwork 2013) and was done.
