#318 3.1.24

I don’t have a lot of Easter stamps but…I bought this cute bunny wreath a while back and voila…Easter!  This is a stamp and stencil set so first up was stenciling the bunnies, the flowers and the carrots.

The stamp portion is all of the greenery and sentiment.  I die cut the wreath and popped it up on some rustic white with the sentiment in the middle.  I added some sparkle and was done!

Retro Rubber Challenge 225...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a tic tac toe and I opted for pattern paper, embossing, and gems or sequins.

I started by stamping the flower image (with it’s cute little happy face!) and sentiment then die cutting with my stitched fishtail flags dies.  I also die cut the pattern paper with the fishtail flags.  The flower image came from my Simon Says Stamps floral bookmarking stamp set from 2014.  The sentiment is not over a year old and is from Simon Says Stamps Beautiful Friend.

RRCB 224

I went clean and simple with a love card.  I stamped and die cut a pink boxwood heart and then stamped the love over the image as well as the card base.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 224 1

I popped the heart up to add a bit of interest and finished off with some heart dots.  The stamps were all from The Greetery – Mini Boxwood Heart and Love is (2021).

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a fill in the blank!  My latest craft purchase is the enduring beauty stamp/stencils/dies set from Stampin’ Up!

#316 2.2.24

I used the stencils to create a soft floral image and then die cut.  This stencil set is amazing and is going to get some use from me.

I die cut a piece of vellum to serve as my back drop and then added the floral image.  I stamped the sentiment and die cut along with some green leaves.  I layered everything together, added some pearls and twine and was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge 223...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge to use to use midnight blue, violet blue, sky blue and white.

RRCB 223

I really struggled with this challenge because I just couldn’t come up with something that I really liked.  In the end, I played around with some collage stamping which is a go to for me. 

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 223 1

I used the required colors with my Stampin’ Up! French Foliage (2011) and Artfully Layered (2022) and my Clearly Besotted Message Me (2016).  I die cut using a postage die cut, popped it up and was done!

Vintage Roses For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a color challenge to use melon mambo, crushed curry, granny apple green and mossy meadow.

#315 1.19.24

I stamped and heat embossed in black before water coloring using the four required colors.  This stamp lends itself to water coloring and I liked that I could soften the boldness of the colors.    

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 315 1

I did some black speckles on the card and die cut with my deckled edges.  Finally, I added some black rhinestones before adhering to the base.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 222 1

I stamped the sentiment (Papertrey Ink Winter Hills (2012) and then adhered all the bits and pieces to the card front.  I couldn’t resist adding the sweet heart button as a last minute touch.

Love For AYSI...

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

#314 1.5.24

I decided to die cut the word love as my four shapes per the sketch.  I die cut three of each letter and then stacked together.  I dug out a piece of pattern paper, cut it down a bit and then used a curved edge.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 314 1

I wanted to stick with the one color theme so I die cut a piece of highland heather to go under the pattern paper and then layered everything according to the sketch.  I added a few rhinestones to add a bit of bling and was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge 221...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s an inspiration challenge to let the image inspire your card.

RRCB 221

I started by running some white cardstock through my merry melody impression folder and then die cutting into a stitched rectangle.  I also die cut two boughs, intertwined them and adhered to the card front.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 221 1

I die cut silver bells, popped up on the boughs and then added the sentiment.  The sentiment is from Lil Inkers No Peeking from at least 10 years ago because I have had it that long!  I die cut around the sentiment and added some twine.  I finished off with some red rhinestones.
