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.

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).

Enduring Beauty For AYSI...

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.

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.

RRCB 222

I started out by stamping and die cutting the bench, pillows, blanket, book and cup.  I used my Papertrey Ink Winter Bench stamp set from 2022.  I opted for some bright colors cause we all need a little bright in the winter!

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.

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.

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a speed challenge to use stars!

#313 12.1.23

I leaned into the star theme and finished my card in 10 minutes exactly.  I started by running the cardstock thru the linen plate and then the real red and white thru the star spangled impression plate.  I adhered the three layers together.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 313 1

I die cut the star and cut down a couple of pieces of bitty star paper and then adhered to the white.  I stamped the sentiment, added the gold star and then some enamel stars.  Oof!  My hands were shaking at the end!

Retro Rubber Challenge 220...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a tic tac toe and I opted for frame, snowman and trees.

RRCB 220

I started by die cutting a window frame on the front of the card.  Then I opted to do something a bit different for me by creating the scene on the inside of the card.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 220 1

I stamped the fence and swag before adding and popping up the die cut tree and snowman.  These images are from my Papertrey Ink Fence Line Winter stamp set from 2018.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 220 2

I added the sentiment (PTI Cozy Christmas 2016) and was done.  I like that the surprise is on the inside of the card!
