Retro Rubber Challenge 189...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge and celebrates colors of the 80s.  We need to use three of these colors – muted mauve, pink, blue, tan or gray.

RRCB 189

I opted to go with blue, pink and tan and created my own plaid design.  Once I had it done – I thought that is a lot of plaid!  So I cut down a piece and decided to show it off thru a chevron cut out die.

I ran the card base of Sahara sand thru the linen plate, added some pink ribbon and attached the chevron/plaid over it.  I finished off the card with a sentiment from my Papertrey Ink It’s The Thought stamp set from 2016.

Distressed For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  We have a recipe challenge and are charged with using watercolor, floral stamps, bright colors, pattern paper and a punch/die.

#281 8.12.2022

I started by watercoloring a background of bright pink.  I then stamped a black daisy image on it.  It came out distressed looking so when life gives you lemons…I decided to embrace the distress!  I grabbed some kraft cardstock for the base and roughed up the edges a bit as well as die cutting the daisy image with my deckled edges die.  Using some granny apple green pattern paper, I die cut a stitched jumbo fishtail and attached to the card base.  I attempted to distress the edges a bit but the pattern paper is thin so I gave up quickly!

I had great debate about adding a sentiment.  By happy accident, I found one that had a bit of a distress to it which I didn’t notice at first.  I stamped the sentiment and started to panic!  I thought I had moved the sentiment and messed up the whole card – but – that is exactly the way the stamp is supposed to look – old fashioned typed lettering that is a bit off.  See, happy accident!  I popped up the daisy image then added a bit of black bling and was done.

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a fill in the blank!  My favorite Christmas in July Creation is … a Christmas card in non-traditional Christmas colors.

#280 7.29.2022

I started with my stamp set from The Greetery and stamped all the flowers in bright tropical colors.  I did the greens in a traditional green and a bright green.

Using the required colors, I did a little blending of the colors using my linen stencil.  I then die cut the paper to create the background for my flower silhouette.

I used my SU! harvest dies to die cut the flower from starry sky paper and then adhered to the blended paper.  I layered on white card stock and then popped up a sentiment as the final touch.  I loved how this turned out.

Leafy Belated Wishes For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a speed challenge to make a belated birthday card.

#277 6.17.2022

I colored my leaf stamp with my zig markers and then spritzed with water before stamping on a piece of watercolor paper.  I cut a piece of pattern paper and a piece of rustic cream to back the leaf image.
