Smores For AYSI...

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

#242 1.22.2021

I started by die cutting a wood slice out of crumbcake and chocolate chip.  Then I stamped and die cut the branch and marshmallows which I popped up on the wood slice.  I added a few marshmallows to the slice as well.  Two cooked and one waiting to be cooked!

I stamped and die cut the word s’more and then added to the card base along with the rest of the sentiment.  The best part about camping is the s’mores!

Scraps For AYSI...

It’s a new year and a new challenge at As You See It!  Not only did the year start over, but we refreshed our website with a cool new banner and challenge images!  The challenge today is a speed challenge (i.e. 10 minutes) to use your scraps.

#241 1.8.2021

Well, I have lots of scraps and they are organized with my cardstock so I just had to decide on colors and what kind of card I was going to make.  I opted for a thank you card that is going to my lovely aunt.  She recently wrote a memoir and gifted a copy to me.  I was happy I made the short list of her favorites and even happier to read the book!  I learned so much about her life!  She is a vibrant lovely person whom I adore!  Love you Aunt MaryAnn!

I stamped my sentiment and then added some scraps of blue around it.  I die cut the sentiment and then layered on some stripey pops of color.  Easy peasy!  I hope auntie loves my card as much as I love her book!

Orange You Glad It Is AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It is a fill in the blank so here we go!  The color I avoid using the most is orange.

#239 11.20.20

I started by stamping the berry branch in soft suede and then added the berries in mango melody and pumpkin pie.  I die cut the berries and then popped them up on some orangey plaid and pumpkin pie.

I stamped the sentiment and then die cut using my washi tag dies before popping it up on the plaid.  The sentiment feels highly appropriate right now.

Stitched Up For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a theme to use stitching or sewing.

#235 9.25.20

I admit this one was a hard one for me!  I had to search through my stamps and dies pretty thoroughly but then I found these cute bobbin dies and voila – an idea was born!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 235 1 (584x640)

I die cut the bobbins and added the twine and thread.  Then I stamped the sentiment on the pattern paper (perfectly suited with the cross stitched images) and a bit on one of the bobbins.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 235 2 (640x319)

I added the bobbins and a few pearls and was done.  I love what I came up with!
