Retro Rubber Challenge 218...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge to use at least three of these five colors – yellow, green, brown, blue and white.

RRCB 218

I started by stamping the image using my Close To My Heart Fabulous You stamps that I have had for well over 10 years.  I colored with brown, yellow, blue and green before die cutting with my deckled edge circles. rrcb 218 1

I popped up the image, stamped the sentiment sideways and added some pops of color with dots. rrcb 218 2

Vellum Does It...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a fill in the blank!  My favorite thing to do with vellum is emboss!

#310 10.20.23

I rarely use vellum, but when I do, I like to emboss it.  And then I wonder, why don’t I do this more often?  I started by stamping my image and coloring with alcohol markers.  I die cut the image and a piece of vellum to go over the top. aysi 310 1

I embossed the sentiment and then popped the whole thing over some gold thread and added some colored rhinestones.  What is your favorite way to use vellum? aysi 310 2

Retro Rubber Challenge 217...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s anything goes!

RRCB 217

I am definitely feeling the fall vibes.  I broke out a stamp set that I have owned since it came out in 2021 but never used – Stampin’ Up Gorgeous Leaves.  The leaves really are gorgeous so I stamped them on a crumbcake background that I stamped off once before applying to the card front. rrcb 217 1

I added the sentiment from Papertrey Ink Keep It Simple Blessed (2017) at an angle and then die cut, added some dots and twine and adhered to the card base.  Easy fall fun! rrcb 217 2

Gone Fishing For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a color challenge to use misty moonlight, copper clay, white, and a neutral.

#309 10.6.2023

I needed a retirement card and just got my gone fishing dies so perfect timing!  I started by stamping a background from my SU! gorgeous leaves stamp set.  I think it’s supposed to be a woodgrain but it is doubling for my water.  I used misty moonlight ink after I stamped it off once. aysi 309 1

I die cut the bobber three times in white and then once in copper clay (leftover pieces that had been woodgrain embossed).  I layered up the bobber and then added the copper clay on the bottom half and for the hook.  I stamped my sentiment and then ran it through my twisted rope embossing folder. aysi 309 2

After that I layered the white on some black and then on the misty moonlight base.  I am super happy with the results and also hope the recipient recognizes the fishing tackle.  LOL!
