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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Christmas For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a theme challenge to make a Christmas card.

#312 11.17.23

I started by die cutting the grid design in white.  I cut a piece of cherry cobbler to go behind the white.  But before I adhered them together, I ran the cherry cobbler through my sheet music impression plate.  It’s hard to see but you can just see the faint outlines of notes and staff. 

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 312 1

I then stamped the small stable and star.  I added the sentiment and some rhinestones to finish off the card.  Once it was done, I spent considerable time rethinking my color combinations but in the end, I decided to keep them.  To be honest, if I was to redo the card, I would have probably swapped out the stable color to cherry cobbler.  Hmmm…I guess I may not be as satisfied as I thought?  LOL!  Don’t you hate it when you start to second guess yourself?

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

#311 11.3.23

I stamped and die cut this sweet image and colored using my alcohol markers.  I love using nontraditional colors for holiday cards and this little gal needed a pop or two of color!  I die cut and embossed some bubble bath paper for my backdrop. 

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 311 1

I stamped the sentiment and then die cut it and some pattern paper to back it.  I added a bit of twine and all of the requirements were satisfied!

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.

Www.seejanestamp.com 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?

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.

Www.seejanestamp.com 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.

Www.seejanestamp.com 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!

Sunflower Crates For AYSI...

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

#308 9.22.23

I started by stamping and die cutting these great images from the Stampin’ Up! Rustic Crate.  This was a must have for me when the set came out.  I colored the flowers and produce with my alcohol markers and stamped the crate.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 308 1

I added some plaid dsp on white and then die cut to provide the background for my crate image.  I also cut down a piece of corresponding dsp and backed it with black before layering everything on the card.  My final step was the sentiment which was a perfect fit over the crate.

Hobbies For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a speed challenge to tell us about your hobbies!

#307 9.8.23

I love to read and actually made a card with the one book stamp I have.  But I didn't like it.  So I changed to my other favorite hobby - cardmaking!  I have had this particular image for a while and it suits this challenge quite nicely.  

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 307 1

I stamped my image and sentiment, colored in with my alcohol markers and layered it up.  It was meant to have some dots but I knew I couldn't get them on in time so I stopped with 5 seconds to spare!
