Retro Rubber Challenge 72...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  We have a fun travel themed challenge for you that requires you use a mode of transportation on your card.


I immediately thought of my Simon Says Stamp Road Trip stamps that came out in 2014.  The station wagon took me back to when I was a kid and many a vacations that my family went on. rrcb 72 1 (553x640)

I colored the wagon ala National Lampoon’s Vacation style before die cutting and popping up on the card front.  I stamped an outline of the US underneath the card front and die cut a circle to show off the outline. rrcb 72 2 (640x438)

AYSI For The Birds...

It’s time for a new As You See It Challenge!  This challenge requires you to use five items on your card – stripes, circles, dark blue, brads and birds.  Now, this is harder than you imagine and the card I am posting today is my second attempt.  The first card will not see the light of day!  LOL!

#159 9.22.17

I started by stamping a circle in daffodil delight and some stripes in pink pirouette.  I added a die cut bird out of night of navy and then a sentiment followed by a night of navy brad. aysi 159 1 (569x640)

I used my mini stitched scallop rectangle to die cut and then popped it up on a night of navy base.  My first attempt included a bird cage, birds and a lot of stripes.  It was awful!  I am happier with this card and already have plans to send it to someone who could use a pick me up. aysi 159 2 (640x484)

Retro Rubber Challenge 71...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s Anything Goes!

Then I added the sentiment from the Reverse Confetti The Lord’s Strength stamp set from 2016.  I die cut and then layered over another diecut circle for a bit of interest. rrcb 71 2 (640x466)

Friends For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  We have a sketch challenge for you and it’s a fun one!!

#158 9.8.17

I started by stamping the sentiment and die cutting the rectangle and running it thru the linen impression plate. aysi 158 1 (563x640)

By using some lemon lime twist and tranquil tide inks and mixing them into embossing paste, I ran the paste over a stencil and waited for it to dry. aysi 158 2 (640x477)

I sponged the lemon lime and tranquil tide inks onto a white doily before layering everything according to the sketch.  A bit of linen thread finished off my card.

September House Of Cards...

It’s a new month and a new House of Cards Challenge!  You can either use the colors and/or text on your card.

Sept add text and or colors

I did a little of both.  I added a few images of French text from my SU! French Foliage stamp set and then added a sunflower. sept hoc 1 (556x640)

Using my color pencils, I colored in the image before adding a sentiment and a bit of rust colored cardstock behind the image.  I attached everything to a card base of Sahara sand and was done. sept hoc 2 (640x621)
