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)

Finally I ran the card front thru the linen impression plate and thru my MFT blue print stitched die before adding some twine and adhering to the card base.

A July Christmas For AYSI...

We have a fun new challenge at As You See It!  And it’s one that I created – we have a recipe challenge for you.  Use the following on your card:  die cut, red, stars, ribbon and make it a Christmas card.

#204 7.5.19

I wiped out three of those requirements in one move – a red star die cut.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 204 1 (531x640)

Then I added a bit of silver ribbon and a holiday sentiment and was done!  I used my spray adhesive to adhere the star to the card front and it looks a little cobwebby.  LOL.

I stamped a branch and pinecones from my Papertrey Ink peaceful pinecones stamp set that I have had since 2012.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 114 1 (611x640)

Then I diecut a square around my image and backed it with a garden green scalloped square.  I popped the image up on the card base and added the sentiment around the square.  A few pearls finished it off!

Blimey Limey For AYSI...

Welcome to a new As You See It Challenge.  This one is fill in the blank!

#203 6.21.19

My favorite color to wear is lime green!  So I used my retro circles and some lemon lime twist ink to stencil the background.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 203 1 (553x640)

Then I added the sentiment that I backed with a bit of black.  I finished off with a few black rhinestones.

Retro Rubber Challenge 113...

Welcome to our new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s anything goes!

RRCB 113
I started by stamping this image from PaperTrey Ink’s Fashion Sense stamp set from 2015.  I stamped the background in black and then added the dress in flirty flamingo.  I added the sentiment across the image itself which is a bit unusual for me.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 113 1 (598x640)

I added a strip of flirty flamingo beneath the white card front and some bling as well!
