As You See It

Fill In The AYSI Blank...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It and it is a fill in the blank.  (that I got to create!)  My go to die or punch that I use most often is the linen impression plate.  But I think you all could have guessed that!  I love it because it adds a smidge of texture and makes the card feel a little more upscale.

#209 9.13.19

I did a one layer card so I could show off the linen plate.  I added snowflakes and circles in soft colors and then ran the card thru the linen plate.  Even though it is hard to see!

I stamped the sentiment, die cut it, and popped it up on the card.

It's always a bit difficult to see the texture from the linen plate so here is a picture of what it looks like.

Dotty For AYSI...

It’s time for a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a lovely color challenge using pretty peacock, coastal cabana and mango melody.

#208 8.30.19

I started with a jumbo dot cover die and die cut the white card front and some dots from the three required colors.

Then I popped up the white die cut and added my three colors.  I love that pop of color on all the white!  Finally, I stamped the sentiment and backed it with a piece of pretty peacock to add a bit more color.

Serenity...

It’s time for a new As You See It Challenge!  It’s a sketch challenge and I loved the sketch.

#207 8.16.19

I went super clean and simple by using my sentiment as the line and sentiment.  (does that make sense? lol!)  I added three birds to sit on part of the swoop in the serenity image.

My card is one layer and I used my linen impression plate for a bit of texture (naturally!).

Purples For AYSI...

We have a new speed challenge at As You See It!  These are fun!  The objective is to make a card in under 10 minutes.  You must make the card in shades of purple and report how much time you had left on the clock after you finished the card.

#206 8.2.19

I started with a base of gray granite which I ran thru the linen impression plate.  I felt I needed a neutral tone to balance all of the purple.  Then I diecut a piece of elegant eggplant and white after which I ran them thru the linen plate.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 206 1 (570x640)

Then I randomly stamped the images in three shades of purple: wisteria wonder, elegant eggplant and perfect plum.  I adhered the three pieces together and then stamped the sentiment.  Finally, I added pearls and rhinestones.

Beachy Times For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  LeAnne created this fun challenge for theme week which is Beaches!

#205 7.19.19

I dug out an old Lawn Fawn stamp set and created a very relaxing scene.  Who doesn’t want to be lying in a hammock on the beach?  Actually, the palm trees and hammock look like a smiling face.  LOL!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 205 1 (613x640)

I stamped the images and then used my chalks to add the color.  I die cut the image and ran thru the linen impression plate before adhering to the kraft card base.

A July Christmas For AYSI...

We have a fun new challenge at As You See It!  And it’s one that I created – we have a recipe challenge for you.  Use the following on your card:  die cut, red, stars, ribbon and make it a Christmas card.

#204 7.5.19

I wiped out three of those requirements in one move – a red star die cut.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 204 1 (531x640)

Then I added a bit of silver ribbon and a holiday sentiment and was done!  I used my spray adhesive to adhere the star to the card front and it looks a little cobwebby.  LOL.

Blimey Limey For AYSI...

Welcome to a new As You See It Challenge.  This one is fill in the blank!

#203 6.21.19

My favorite color to wear is lime green!  So I used my retro circles and some lemon lime twist ink to stencil the background.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 203 1 (553x640)

Then I added the sentiment that I backed with a bit of black.  I finished off with a few black rhinestones.

Hibiscus Flowers For AYSI...

For our new challenge at As You See It, we have a color challenge of calypso coral, daffodil delight and mossy meadow.

#202 6.7.19

I started by stamping two hibiscus flowers in calypso coral.  I added a bit of leaves and the flower stems in the appropriate colors.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 202 1 (570x640)

I die cut around the images using my stitched arch and popped up over a panel of daffodil delight and mossy meadow that I centered on kraft cardstock.  I finished off with a few dots and bling for interest.

Happy Travels For AYSI...

Today, it's welcome to not only a new challenge at As You See It but the start of a new way of doing things. With the retirement of Amanda, our Designer Emeritus, the crew is taking on the task of designing the weekly challenges on a rotating basis. In addition, we've decided to use a regular rotation of six styles of challenge. In future, you'll be seeing a sketch, a colour challenge, a fill-in-the-blank, a recipe (where you're given ingredients you have to use), a theme and finally a speed challenge. Then back to the beginning.

Our team leader, Heather, has started the ball rolling with this sweet sketch challenge.  I love a great sketch so I set to work making a retirement card.

#201 5.24.19

I started with a base of delightful Dijon.  A bit of travel themed paper backed with tranquil tide kept with the retirement theme.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 201 1 (578x640)

I stamped the travel trailer directly on the Dijon and backed it with a bit of tranquil tide as well.  Finally I used my washi tape dies to create a sentiment and was done.

Two For AYSI...

It’s our 200th challenge at As You See It!  This challenge is to use two [things] on a card.  Which is harder than you think!

#200 5.10.19

I used two images, two colors, two twines and twisted the twine twice.  Say that three times fast!  Anyway…I think I met the challenge!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 200 1 (584x640)

I stamped the two balloon animals in dapper denim and lemon time twist.  I added the sentiment and the twine and was done!
