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.

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.

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!

Sweet Colors For AYSI...

We have a new challenge at As You See It!  A fun color palette of powder pink, pineapple punch, and lovely lipstick.

#199 4.26.19

I busted out some of my dies and embossing folders and set to work.  The top part of the card is the pineapple punch cardstock that I ran thru a striped embossing folder.  I added it to the white card front that I ran thru the linen impression plate.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 199 1 (594x640)

Then I die cut a chevron out of the lovely lipstick and added pink pirouette underneath.  I couldn’t find my powder pink cardstock so I went with as close as I had.  I adhered it to the card front and added the sentiment and a few enamel hearts.

Finally I attached everything to my kraft card base.

Layers For AYSI...

It’s a new sketch challenge at As You See It.  And I love it!

#198 4.12.19

I started with a base of vanilla cream that I ran thru the linen plate.  Then I added a half circle of pear pizzazz and the silver thread. 

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 198 1 (640x505)

I added the flagged pattern paper and finally the sentiment on a wonky die cut.  I couldn’t resist the sweet butterfly and string of rhinestones [which look really blurry here and I could not get a good pic without that happening - sorry about that!]

Poppies For AYSI...

It’s time for a new As You See It challenge.  This is a fill in the blank challenge. 

#194 2.15.19

When I think simple, I think clean and simple.  I love a one layer card so I started with this lovely poppy image that I used my chalks on and then decided to add one small layer with my sentiment.
