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. rrcb 113 1 (598x640)

I added a strip of flirty flamingo beneath the white card front and some bling as well! rrcb 113 2 (640x415)

Hibiscus Flowers For AYSI...

For our new challenge at As You See It, we have a color challenge of calypso coral, daffodil delight and mossy meadow.

#202 6.7.19

I started by stamping two hibiscus flowers in calypso coral.  I added a bit of leaves and the flower stems in the appropriate colors. aysi 202 1 (570x640)

I die cut around the images using my stitched arch and popped up over a panel of daffodil delight and mossy meadow that I centered on kraft cardstock.  I finished off with a few dots and bling for interest. aysi 202 2 (640x470)

I opted to showcase one sweet button!  I started by stamping the image from the SU! On The Grow stamp set (circa 2011) and used chalks to color in the flowers. rrcb 112 1 (571x640)

I layered the image up on several pattern papers and then added the sentiment and the button and ribbon. rrcb 112 2 (640x483)

Happy Travels For AYSI...

Today, it's welcome to not only a new challenge at As You See It but the start of a new way of doing things. With the retirement of Amanda, our Designer Emeritus, the crew is taking on the task of designing the weekly challenges on a rotating basis. In addition, we've decided to use a regular rotation of six styles of challenge. In future, you'll be seeing a sketch, a colour challenge, a fill-in-the-blank, a recipe (where you're given ingredients you have to use), a theme and finally a speed challenge. Then back to the beginning.

Our team leader, Heather, has started the ball rolling with this sweet sketch challenge.  I love a great sketch so I set to work making a retirement card.

#201 5.24.19

I started with a base of delightful Dijon.  A bit of travel themed paper backed with tranquil tide kept with the retirement theme. aysi 201 1 (578x640)

I stamped the travel trailer directly on the Dijon and backed it with a bit of tranquil tide as well.  Finally I used my washi tape dies to create a sentiment and was done. aysi 201 2 (640x442)

Retro Rubber Challenge 111...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge

RRCB 111

Since it is a tic tac toe challenge I naturally went for the one layer card, birds and sponging. rrcb 111 1 (543x640)

I started by using a leaf stencil and sponged peach parfait and peekaboo peach inks for the color. rrcb 111 2 (640x535)

This beautiful bird stamp and a whimsical sentiment finished off the card.  Both the bird and sentiment came from the Close To My Heart Live Inspired stamp set that I have had for about seven years.

Two For AYSI...

It’s our 200th challenge at As You See It!  This challenge is to use two [things] on a card.  Which is harder than you think!

#200 5.10.19

I used two images, two colors, two twines and twisted the twine twice.  Say that three times fast!  Anyway…I think I met the challenge! aysi 200 1 (584x640)

I stamped the two balloon animals in dapper denim and lemon time twist.  I added the sentiment and the twine and was done! aysi 200 2 (640x347)

Have fun and see what you can do with two!  Link up HERE!

Retro Rubber Challenge 110...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber.  It’s all about flowers!

RRCB 110

I started with this beautiful mums stamp from Rubbernecker Stamps which I have had since 2016.  I stamped the first layer in chocolate chip ink and then added yellow, orange and red to the flower portion of the stamp.  I wasn’t sure what I would get – but it turned out really well. rrcb 110 1 (582x640)

Then I added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp’s Birthday Flowers from 2016.  Finally I added a couple of strips of crushed curry and die cut with a stitched die. rrcb 110 2 (640x475)

Sweet Colors For AYSI...

We have a new challenge at As You See It!  A fun color palette of powder pink, pineapple punch, and lovely lipstick.

#199 4.26.19

I busted out some of my dies and embossing folders and set to work.  The top part of the card is the pineapple punch cardstock that I ran thru a striped embossing folder.  I added it to the white card front that I ran thru the linen impression plate. aysi 199 1 (594x640)

Then I die cut a chevron out of the lovely lipstick and added pink pirouette underneath.  I couldn’t find my powder pink cardstock so I went with as close as I had.  I adhered it to the card front and added the sentiment and a few enamel hearts. aysi 199 2 (640x537)

Finally I attached everything to my kraft card base.

Retro Rubber Challenge 109...

It’s Anything Goes at Retro Rubber

RRCB 109

I started with a funky die cut rectangle out of some musical paper. rrcb 109 1 (584x640)

Then I flagged a couple of scraps of paper and popped them up after adding my sentiment.  I thought it appropriate given my paper! rrcb 109 2 (640x507)

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted Message Me from 2016.  A little bling finishes the card!

Layers For AYSI...

It’s a new sketch challenge at As You See It.  And I love it!

#198 4.12.19

I started with a base of vanilla cream that I ran thru the linen plate.  Then I added a half circle of pear pizzazz and the silver thread. aysi 198 1 (640x505)

I added the flagged pattern paper and finally the sentiment on a wonky die cut.  I couldn’t resist the sweet butterfly and string of rhinestones [which look really blurry here and I could not get a good pic without that happening - sorry about that!] aysi 198 2 (640x425)
