#219 2.14.20

I started by stamping the flower image in sahara sand and then adding the purple and greens to it.  I die cut the image using my stitched nested labels and also die cut one in perfect plum.  I wanted just the strip of purple to help the image to pop off the vanilla card base.

I added a bit of pattern paper, a fancy bow paper clip and my sentiment before adding some pearls.

Retro Rubber Challenge 128...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge to use red, pink and white on a card.

RRCB 128

I started by die cutting my heart die out of cherry cobbler twice and then layered them together for a bit of depth.  I punched some hearts out of pink pirouette to layer on the die cut as well.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 128 1 (571x640)

I stamped the sentiment (from Clearly Besotted Message Me circa 2016) and die cut on a washi tape die.  I popped it up on the hearts and added a sweet little pink one on it before adding some rhinestones for sparkle.

I started with a card base of crumbcake.  Then I stamped the thanks image on white before running thru my linen plate and stitched rectangle die.

I grabbed a scrap from my scrap bag and also some ribbon.  I layered these and attached using staples.  Then I adhered everything to the base at a slant.  I quite like this card!

Retro Rubber Challenge 127...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  We have a tic tac toe challenge so I opted to use the pattern paper, die cut, and sympathy row.

RRCB 127

I started by adding a piece of pattern paper to my card base.  I stamped the daffodil image (from my Stampin’ Up! You’re Inspiring – 2018) and colored using some chalks.  I die cut the image so that I could adhere to the card base.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 127 1 (578x640)

I stamped the sentiment (Clearly Besotted Message Me 2016) and then die cut using my washi tape dies.  Finally I popped it up and then added a few rhinestones.

Love For AYSI...

Welcome to a new challenge at As You See It!  We have a love theme for this go around so I went pretty clean and simple (naturally!).

#217 1.17.20

I started with a die cut heart out of white paper before adding an ombre of sweet sugarplum ink to it. 

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 217 1 (623x640)

I added the sentiment and then popped it up on a base of sweet sugarplum with a bit of white twine tied around it.

Retro Rubber Challenge 126...

It’s a new challenge for a new year at Retro Rubber!  The challenge is to make a winter themed card.  I thought this would be easy until I couldn’t come up with anything!  Luckily, I had a meeting this past weekend where a friend showed off her collection of wreaths.  One of them was a snowflake wreath so I used that for my inspiration.

RRCB 126

I started by drawing a circle and then stamping a variety of snowflake stamps around it.  I used colors that I used on this card that I made a few weeks ago.  These stamps were from my Simon Says Stamp Lots of Snowflakes stamps from 2014.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 126 1 (584x640)

I added the sentiment from my Penny Black Yuletide Wishes stamp set from 2016 and decided to put the stamp a bit to the right.  I moved it around the circle, in and out of the circle and ultimately liked it where it ended up.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 126 2 (640x436)

I added a few rhinestones and some twine before adhering to a card base of soft sky.

Supplies:  CS:  SU! white and soft sky.  Stamps:  SSS lots of snowflakes (2014).  Penny Black yuletide wishes (2016).  Inks:  SU! baja breeze, pool party and soft sky.  Other:  Rhinestones.  SU! pool party twine.  PTI linen impression plate.


Inspiring Words For AYSI...

Welcome to the first As You See It Challenge of 2020!  It’s a recipe challenge to use silver, snowflakes, dry embossing, rhinestones and an inspiring sentiment.

#216 1.3.20

I started by stamping some snowflakes in light gray and then stamping the sentiment over the top in black ink.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 216 1 (575x640)

I added a piece of silver cardstock and then ran the card front thru the tin types impression plate.  After that, I die cut using a stitched rectangle and adhered to the black card base.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 216 2 (640x401)

Finally I added the rhinestones and was done!  Just a note, these photos may look a little dark – when I lighted them up, the silver was too reflective and made the dry embossing even harder to see.  (The pattern is a stitched diamond and inverted dots at the edges of the diamond.)

#215 12.6.19

I stamped a variety of snowflakes in different blues and then ran my card thru my linen plate.

RRCB 125

I started with a die cut of some appropriately colored pattern paper.  Then I stamped my brush tree and die cut.  The tree is from the PTI Joyful Christmas stamp set from 2015.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 125 1 (547x640)

I stamped the sentiment and then punched using my washi tape punch.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted Message Me from 2016.
