Lemony Sunshine For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a fill in the blank!  The thing I love most about summer is spending time with friends and family and enjoying a nice cold drink!

#304 7.28.23

I dug out my brand new Stampin’ Up! So Refreshing stamp set to make this card.  I stamped the images and then die cut them.  I wanted to use summery colors – yellows for the summer sunshine and purple for summer flowers. aysi 304 1

I started with a light lemon lolly gingham background to set the scene.  Then I added a sprig of flowers and the cloth while layering everything else up.  What is your favorite thing about summer?  I look forward to seeing what you create! aysi 304 2

Retro Rubber Challenge 211...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a tic tac toe and I opted for emboss, die cut and beach.

RRCB 211

I started by stamping a post in crumbcake and then heat embossing the lines onto the post.  I added some sand and grasses to build the beach scene.  These are from Papertrey Ink’s fence line summer stamps from 2018. rrcb 211 1

I stamped a bucket, die cut, popped it up and added the sentiment (from PTI’s floating by circa 2022).  A beachy one-layer card – easy peasy! rrcb 211 2

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a color challenge to use poppy parade, Tahitian tide, gray granite and crumbcake.

#303 7.14.23

I started by digging out one of my favorite stamp sets – Stampin’ Up!’s Bella & Friends.  I love the images so much!  So I got to working stamping my image and coloring using my alcohol markers. aysi 303 1

I die cut a piece of gray granite to create a frame for this sweet image and then popped it up on a gray granite base.  I got all of my required colors in and am super happy with this sweet card.  A few rhinestones for bling and I was done! aysi 303 2
