A Speedy Thanks For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a speed challenge to make a thank you card!

#325 6.7.24

I have a love/hate relationship with speed challenges.  I love them when I know exactly what I am going to make and I can get it done in the required time…and I hate them when I know what I am going to make and it takes more than 10 minutes…lol!  I had to make this card twice so I was an expert the second time around.

I stamped the image from the long ago retired SU! always thankful stamp set.  I love this stamp set because of this one image.  I stamped it in wild wheat and ran the card thru my linen impression plate.  I stamped the sentiment and went to check the time…and cleared the timer!!  Argh!  So I started over!

So I repeated the above paragraph, sans clearing the time, snipped the sentiment edges and popped up on the card.  I was so proud of myself – I was about 5 minutes in when I decided to add some bling – which cost me a minute and a half trying to unstick the dots and get them on the card!  But at 6 minutes and 30 seconds, my card was done!

I die cut two stitched triangles out of coordinating paper and then layered according to the sketch.

I stamped the sentiment (Simon Says Stamp Sketchy Banner Greetings from 2013), snipped the edges on an angle and then popped up over the triangles.  I added a bit of bling and was done!  CAS to the max!

Wedding Bells For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a theme challenge to make a wedding card.

#324 5.24.24

My sweet niece is getting married – thus my inspiration for the challenge!  I wanted to use her colors to make this card for her and my soon to be sweet nephew.  I started by die cutting the bride (in white and white linen) and groom (in misty moonlight) and gluing all the pieces together.

I die cut the oval in this lovely green to showcase the bride and groom.  I popped it up over some ribbon and then added the sentiment – which I really had to dig to find.  I think I need some more wedding sentiments!  Happy wedding day!

Pretty In Pink For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  We have a recipe challenge to use an embossing folder, black, white, one other color and die cut.

#323 5.10.24

I opted to stamp my image (in pretty in pink as my one other color) randomly on the white card stock.  Then I embossed with my tasteful texture embossing folder.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 323 1

I stamped the sentiment, die cut it as well as the white card front.  Then I adhered the card front to the pretty in pink cardstock and then onto black.  Finally, I added a strip of black behind the sentiment to anchor everything together.

Retro Rubber Challenge 230...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a theme challenge to make a card with a nautical theme.

RRCB 230

I started out by embossing a piece of night of navy with my twisted rope embossing folder.  I die cut it down with a stitched die and then added a piece of twine before adhering to the kraft card base.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 230 1

I stamped and die cut the anchor image and also the sentiment.  These are from my Papertrey Ink Seas of Life stamp set from 2021.  Clean and simple.

Apple Blossoms For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a fill in the blank challenge.  The color I use least in my crafting is...flirty flamingo!

#322 4.26.24

Confession:  This card was made for our previous challenge.  As I was making it - I had the thought that I never use flirty flamingo and shame on me because it is a lovely color!  You are probably wondering why I didn't post it for our last challenge...because I broke the rules and used green and two neutrals (white and brown) when you are allowed one neutral and only the four colors in the challenge.  I didn't have time to make another card so I had to sit out the challenge.  However...sometimes mistakes can become a card for the next challenge!

I stamped the apple harvest branch and colored the apples with my calypso coral and flirty flamingo blends.  I used crumbcake and granny apple green for the branch and leaves.

I stamped the sentiment and some flowers that I colored with bubble bath and daffodil delight.  I fussy cut them and added to the card front.  I backed the white front with flirty flamingo then adhered to the calypso coral base.  I ended up making another card with flirty flamingo while I had the cardstock out.  That means I am probably good with this color for awhile.  LOL.

Retro Rubber Challenge 228...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a fun sketch to try!

RRCB 228

I started by stamping and die cutting the branch of spring berries.  It is from my Papertrey Ink Spring Beautiful Berries from 2017.  I also die cut a postage stamp from white to pop the berries on.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 228 1

The layer behind the sketch is aluminum dryer tape.  I learned this trick a long time ago and yet I rarely use it.  It adds shine and its tape!  I ran the tape thru my linen plate for some texture and then attached to the flirty flamingo card base.  I added the sentiment (Clearly Besotted Message Me 2016) and was done.

Lighthouse Sketch For AYSI...

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

#320 3.29.24
I started by stamping my lighthouse and then die cutting.  I went rectangle instead of circle, but that’s the great thing about this sketch – you can change up the shape!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 320 1

I decided to get creative with the way I stamped the sentiment and I love how it turned out.  As you can see, I split the sentiment and used the word light to keep to the sketch requirements.  Once I had all the parts of the sentiment done – I added that bit of twine to keep with the oceany feel.  I popped the whole thing up on a piece of real red, adhered that to the white card base and was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge 227...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge to use white, blue, brown and black.

RRCB 227

I opted for a clean and simple masculine birthday card.  I die cut a piece of boho blue and crumbcake with my shiplap die.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 227 1

I stamped the image from my SU! Artistically Asian stamp set (from around 2016) onto white, then adhered my shiplap pieces and stamped the image again.  I finished the card with the birthday sentiment from Clearly Besotted Message Me (2016).

Speedy Spring For AYSI...

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

#319 3.15.24

I dug out this spring flowers stamp set that I have had for a long time and never used.  I thought I could finally beat this challenge and make a card in about 6 minutes (I know we have 10 minutes but I always seem to need the whole 10 minutes).  I did not think this through.  LOL.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 319 1

The image stamping (and linen plate) took about 3 minutes – I took a quick peek at the timer and thought I can do this – just the coloring left!  Umm…no I couldn’t.  I spent the next 6 minutes and 53 seconds coloring.  Maybe next time!  Time left:  7 seconds.
