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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.)

Feeling Blue For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  The challenge is to use shades of blue and make a card in ten minutes or less.

#212 10.25.19

I started by running my blueberry bushel card base thru my linen plate.  Then I ran the white card front thru the linen plate and die cut the stitched rectangle.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 212 1 (640x497)

I stamped the feathers in three shades of blue – marina mist, bashful blue and soft sky.  The sentiment was stamped in blueberry bushel.  I adhered the card together and then decided it needed some bling.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 212 2 (640x419)

With just over two minutes left, I thought I had plenty of time to put some bling on there.  Well, I didn’t!  I had just found what I wanted to use when the timer went off.  So the card was done with 0 seconds left and no bling!
