Stripes For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a color challenge of flirty flamingo, crushed curry and black.

#179 6.29.18

I decided to do a stripey background using the required colors. aysi 179 1 (552x640)

Then I stamped the sentiment, die cut it and backed with a piece of crushed curry before popping it up on the base. aysi 179 2 (640x493)

A few flirty flamingo hearts and I was done!

Retro Rubber Challenge #89...

We have a new challenge at Retro Rubber this week and I am playing along!  LOL!  I have missed the last two challenges due to my work schedule.


I love a tic tac toe challenge and Jan Clothier put together a fun one.  I opted for a diagonal line of romantic occasions, pattern paper and gems. rrcb 89 1 (588x640)

Keeping my card clean and simple, I die cut a piece of pattern paper and added a wedding sentiment from a 2015 Simon Says Stamp set.  A few enamel hearts later, and I popped the paper up on a card base of linen cream. rrcb 89 2 (640x472)

Fresh For AYSI...

Welcome to a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s theme week and the theme is fresh!

#178 6.15.18

I stole directly from the image and did a “sweet” little card with strawberries.  I stamped the image in wild wasabi and Sahara sand and then colored in with my pencils. aysi 178 1 (566x640)

I die cut the image and then popped up over a stripe of pattern paper and cream cardstock.  I added the sentiment and was done! aysi 178 2 (640x417)

Five For Five For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  Amanda has given us a challenge to use five things on a card – and these were a bit tough to put together!

#177 6.1.18

I started with a single tree that I die cut into a square.  Two of the five down!  I ran the card front thru a woodgrain embossing folder and then added a masculine sentiment.  Four down, one to go! aysi 177 1 (596x640)

Finally, I added the card front to a navy card base and the challenge was complete.  A clean and simple card for Father’s Day! aysi 177 2 (640x453)
