As You See It

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Easter Wishes For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a theme challenge to celebrate Easter.

#318 3.1.24

I don’t have a lot of Easter stamps but…I bought this cute bunny wreath a while back and voila…Easter!  This is a stamp and stencil set so first up was stenciling the bunnies, the flowers and the carrots. 

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 318 1

The stamp portion is all of the greenery and sentiment.  I die cut the wreath and popped it up on some rustic white with the sentiment in the middle.  I added some sparkle and was done!

A Plaid Recipe For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  We have a recipe challenge to use an embossing folder, plaid, ribbon/twine, die cut and rhinestones/gems.

#317 2.16.24

I started by stamping the thermos image from SU! warmest heart and then die cutting.  I ran my card base through my linen impression plate and then a piece of the Tahitian tide through the absolutely argyle embossing folder.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 317 1

I die cut a piece of white cardstock, ran thru the linen plate, added the plaid dsp before adding the ribbon, thermos, sentiment and pearl.  I layered everything together and was done!

Enduring Beauty For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a fill in the blank!  My latest craft purchase is the enduring beauty stamp/stencils/dies set from Stampin’ Up!

#316 2.2.24

I used the stencils to create a soft floral image and then die cut.  This stencil set is amazing and is going to get some use from me.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 316 1

I die cut a piece of vellum to serve as my back drop and then added the floral image.  I stamped the sentiment and die cut along with some green leaves.  I layered everything together, added some pearls and twine and was done.

Vintage Roses For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a color challenge to use melon mambo, crushed curry, granny apple green and mossy meadow.

#315 1.19.24

I stamped and heat embossed in black before water coloring using the four required colors.  This stamp lends itself to water coloring and I liked that I could soften the boldness of the colors.    

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 315 1

I did some black speckles on the card and die cut with my deckled edges.  Finally, I added some black rhinestones before adhering to the base.

Love For AYSI...

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

#314 1.5.24

I decided to die cut the word love as my four shapes per the sketch.  I die cut three of each letter and then stacked together.  I dug out a piece of pattern paper, cut it down a bit and then used a curved edge.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 314 1

I wanted to stick with the one color theme so I die cut a piece of highland heather to go under the pattern paper and then layered everything according to the sketch.  I added a few rhinestones to add a bit of bling and was done.

Christmas Stars For AYSI...

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

#313 12.1.23

I leaned into the star theme and finished my card in 10 minutes exactly.  I started by running the cardstock thru the linen plate and then the real red and white thru the star spangled impression plate.  I adhered the three layers together.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 313 1

I die cut the star and cut down a couple of pieces of bitty star paper and then adhered to the white.  I stamped the sentiment, added the gold star and then some enamel stars.  Oof!  My hands were shaking at the end!
