Retro Rubber Challenge 182...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a theme challenge to use flowers on a card.

RRCB 182

I stamped this fun house mouse lilac image on crumbcake and then colored with my alcohol markers.  The stamp is the Sensory Overload from 2009.  It’s the first time I have ever used it and I shouldn’t have waited so long!

I die cut with a pierced rectangle and then backed it with heather highland.  I stamped the sentiment from my Papertrey Ink Spring Hills from 2013 before adding this beautiful purple twine.  I adhered to the base and was done.

The Best Thing About Moms...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a fill in the blank.  The best thing about mothers is love!

Moms lead us, teach us, cry with us and celebrate with us.  I miss my mom terribly and she did all of these and more.  She did it because she loved me.  She held my hand when I was young and I held hers when she got older.  Where you go, I go.  Love you and miss you mom!

Retro Rubber Challenge 181...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s tic tac toe!  I chose pattern paper, dry embossing and die cut.

RRCB 181

I started by running all of my paper through the linen impression plate.  Then I stamped the tulips and die cut them.  The images are from my Papertrey Ink Tulip Time stamp set from 2016.

I die cut the pear pizzazz and then ran it through the gridlines impression plate for my dry embossing.  I die cut it and the pattern paper with my mini stitched scallop rectangles.  I layered everything on my card base and added the sentiment which is from my Papertrey Ink Spring Hills stamp set from 2013 and punched out with my washi tape punch.  The dots added the final bit and I was done.

Feeling Blue For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a color challenge to use balmy blue, pacific point and night of navy.

#273 4.22.2022

I started by stenciling a harlequin background out of crumbcake on a piece of vanilla cardstock that I then die cut.  I stamped the sentiment in night of navy and the flower out of balmy blue and pacific point.

I backed the flower with some pacific point pattern paper and then layered up on balmy blue and the night of navy card base.  A little dab of twine and I was done!

Retro Rubber Challenge 180...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a sketch challenge!

RRCB 180

I had many stops and starts on this one and ended up with something super clean and simple.  More simple than I intended for sure!  I cut some pattern papers and backed with crisp cantaloupe and adhered to the card front.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 180 1

I stamped the sentiment from my Neat and Tangled Scandinavian Flowers stamp set from 2015, die cut and popped up on the card.  Done after about three hours of different ideas.  Sometimes I find the simpler the sketch, the harder it is.  Too many options!  Hopefully you won’t be stymied!

Butterfly Sketches For AYSI...

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

#272 4.8.2022

I started by using my butterfly cover plate which has five rows of butterflies.  Perfect for this sketch!  I adhered it to a crumbcake card base and added the sentiment.

I punched some bitty butterflies in bright colors and then adhered randomly.  A bit of bling completes the card.

Retro Rubber Challenge 179...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge and celebrates colors of the 60s.  We need to use three of these colors – bright orange, green, pink, purple or yellow.

RRCB 179

Both the sentiment and image are from Art Impressions Golden Oldies and are from 1996.  It’s hard to believe I have had them that long.  I stamped up the Eunice image and colored in with my alcohol markers.  I die cut around Eunice and a piece of granny apple green.

I stamped the sentiment and then cut a piece of pumpkin pie to back it.  I adhered everything to the crumbcake card base and added a bit of bling to finish off the card.

Staying Dry For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a speed challenge to stay dry. 

#271 3.25.2022

When I saw the challenge, I ordered this sweet house mouse stamp to use.  I also knew I was going to spend a lot of my time coloring.  So I did a bunch of dry runs by stamping and timing myself coloring.  I got it down to just over seven minutes for the image.  I did that by lining up the markers in order of use and keeping the caps off.  (I hope I didn't break the rules by doing that!)


Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 271 1

I always keep a ton of white cardstock prepped and ready for card bases.  So I grabbed one of those and a stitched circle die cut that I have had in my scrap white paper for some time.

I had a scrap of pattern paper that I used to draw my colors from and just had to adhere and cut off the extra.  I looped some twine and added the image.  I was just pressing down on the sentiment when the bell rang so I considered that a win.  I only timed myself with the coloring so the rest was going to be up to chance and I got lucky enough to get the sentiment on, as I had saved that for last.

This was a fun challenge and really made me think up hacks to get a nice card done in the allotted time.

RRCB 178

I actually started this card for another challenge and never used it so I dug it out and finished it off for this challenge.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 178 1

I stamped a brushstroke of granny apple green and added a leaf vine in granny apple green as well.  I stamped the flower image in granny apple green, highland heather and gorgeous grape and then die cut.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 178 2

I die cut the sentiment strip and then adhered everything together.  I added a few bits of bling for interest.  The stamps I used were all retro and from 2015 – PTI brushed off, choose joy and bitty bouquets.

Oopsie Daisy For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a theme challenge for spring flowers. 

#270 3.11.2022

I love daisies and opted to stamp and die cut some orangish daisies.  Then I did a postage stamp square out of cork to pop the daisies on.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 270 1

I die cut a stitched rectangle out of mango melody that I ran through both my linen impression plate and my tin type impression plate.  I stamped and popped up the sentiment, added some bling and was done!
