Toad-ally AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a speed challenge to make a silly or funny card.

#259 9.17.2021

I would say I went with punny and maybe a bit silly.  I stamped this crazy frog image and colored with my alcohol markers.

I die cut the image, popped it up and added the sentiment.  I ran everything thru my linen plate and added a bit of seam binding to finish the card off.  I used 9 minutes and 30 seconds.

Retro Rubber Challenge 167...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  We have a lovely sketch this time around.

RRCB 167

I started by stamping and die cutting my coffee cup image from my Stampin’ Up! Merry Café stamp set from 2017.  I stamped the sentiment and then die cut to put on the coffee cup instead of below the image.

I die cut a curved edge and added some pattern paper to make the basic part of the sketch and then added the coffee cup.  I used some punched leaves and a bit of bling to take the place of the sentiment since I used that on the coffee holder.

I was quite pleased with the outcome but full truth – totally not a fan of pumpkin spice.  I love the color and pumpkins but it’s a firm no to the flavor.  So for all of you pumpkin spice lovers – this one’s for you!

Up For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a theme challenge and it is all up in the air.

#258 9.3.2021

I went for birds and created this sweet birthday card.  I stamped and die cut the branch and birds.  These are layering stamps and I really love how they turned out.

To make them pop a bit, I added a stitched triangle underneath to also serve as a focal point.  I added the sentiment and was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge 166...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s time for an inspiration challenge so here is my take.

RRCB 166

I was inspired to use the colors and make a mini bouquet.  I used my stamps from Papertrey Ink Bitty Bouquet from 2015.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 166 1

I die cut a lattice out of grayish polka dot paper for the background (using the tabletop in the picture for that inspiration).  I used rustic white for my card base and for the little square I popped my flowers up on.  A small sentiment, thread and some bling and I was done.

A Wheat Recipe For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It is a recipe challenge to use wheat/grass, embossing folder, twine, gingham and crumbcake.

#257 8.20.2021

This was hard for me!  I stopped and started several different versions of cards until I landed on this.  I started by die cutting wheat in rustic cream and crumbcake.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 257 1

I ran the rustic cream cardstock through my woodgrain embossing folder.  I cut a curved edge and added some gingham pattern paper with a curved edge as well.  I stamped and die cut the sentiment and then layered everything on the card.

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s fill in the blank and name your favorite animal.

#256 8.6.2021

I don’t know that I really have a favorite animal but I do love koalas so I stamped this sweet image and colored with my alcohol markers.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 256 1

I die cut the image and then popped up over a funky looking stencil.  G’day!

I stamped these floral images in shades of purple and green from The Greetery stamp set Simple Things from 2019.

You Light Up My Life For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  A sketch that had endless possibilities!

#254 7.9.2021

I die cut a piece of ombre patterned paper and adhered to the card base.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 254 1

I stamped and die cut the lighthouse and then did the sentiment.  I like the pairing of colors between the ombre and the green stripes.  I added a few birds and was done.
