Layered Up For House Of Cards...

Welcome to a new House of Cards Challenge! This month we want you to make a layered card, use these lovely colors or both! I opted to go with a layered card but use fall colors instead.

November Lots of layers and or colors

I die cut stitched panels in more mustard and cajun craze. Then I die cut a fishtail flag out of white and a layer of printed vellum.

A Fall Rainbow...

It’s Wednesday and time for me to join the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge. I was searching thru my stencils when I happened upon this brand new retro circles stencil from Stamplorations. I had forgotten that I had this so I decided to use it to do a fall rainbow!

Using a cotton ball (someday I will spring for some sponge daubers!) and a variety of inks I got started. I started on the right with cajun craze, added crushed curry, some pumpkin pie and finished up with old olive.

I added the sentiment and then ran the card thru the linen impression plate. Sorry – I am so hooked on that thing that someone may need to stage an intervention! LOL!

Retro Rubber Challenge #50...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge! We have a photo inspiration for you and it’s all about fall colors!

RRCB 50

I was inspired by all of the fall colors in the trees so naturally I used my SU! Lovely As A Tree stamp set. I have had this stamp set for four or five years and I am not sure how long it’s been around before that.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 50 1 (640x514)

I used my chalks and colored up the trees, ground and sky. Then I added a piece of fall plaid and a thin piece of copper foil to finish off the card. I couldn’t decide on a sentiment so I didn’t use one!

Copper Trees...

Happy Monday! I have been in a fall (not foul! LOL!) mood lately. This year, I just can’t get into Halloween at all, just in making fall related cards. Anyway, I am jumping in today with another fallish card using the sketch at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge, natch!

I started by using some yummy fall papers that I die cut using stitched rectangles. Then I die cut a stitched circle and layered on my card.

Www.seejanestamp.com fms 1 (522x640)

I added my sentiment and then die cut these luscious copper trees. I popped them up for a bit of dimension. I am loving this copper paper from Stampin’ Up! If you haven’t tried it, go get some! You will thank me for that bit of advice!

CASing Shannon...

I made today’s card to case Shannon Jaramillo’s card shown HERE. And by accident, I can play along with the Paper Player’s CAS challenge of using leaves on a card.

So I inked up the leaves and vines in spring moss and then stamped over the top again with some bright buttercup.

Www.seejanestamp.com pp 1 (571x640)

The pumpkins were added one at a time and then I stamped the sentiment. Using this lovely orange plaid paper, I added it to the sides to follow Shannon’s card. Then I attached to a card base of kraft with some enamel dots to finish it off.

Supplies: CS: PTI white. LF fall plaid. Sentiments: PTI autumn adornments. Inks: PTI spring moss, summer sunrise and bright buttercup. Memento black. Other: Enamel dots.


Fall Birthdays...

Hello Monday! Today I am playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge and came up with a fall themed birthday card.

I started by stamping a variety of leaves that are multi layered stamps. I love stamps that allow you to give depth to an image without doing anything. Just adding another stamp in a darker color!

Www.seejanesetamp.com fms 1 (530x640)

I added the birthday sentiment and then using a curved die, cut a lovely curve in the card front and in the cajun craze layer as well. After I adhered the card front to the base, I decided to continue the curved feel on the base.

I love how this turned out as it is going to a good friend who recently celebrated their 50th birthday.

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to stop in tomorrow as we will be starting a new Retro Rubber Challenge.

A Fall Birthday...

Happy Monday! My nephew is excited that today is Monday because it is his birthday! He is my youngest nephew and I can’t believe how fast the time is going. So I thought I would make him a card that is a bit more grown up as he is in his teen years now.

I started with the fabulous sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I stamped three leaves in fall colors and then added the sentiment.

Www.seejanestamp.com fms 1 (564x640)

I ran the card front thru the linen plate and then die cut the stitched fishtail shape. I added the enamel dots and adhered to a kraft card base.

I thought I would whip up a fall leaf wreath! Say that three times fast! I used the PTI twig wreath stamp set and got to work.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 47 1 (547x640)

I stamped the wreath and then added a variety of branches and some leaves. I added the sentiment and then trimmed the card front down to fit on the card base.

Retro Rubber Challenge #47...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge! This one is an Anything Goes! So bust out your old stamps and get to work!

RRCB 47

I started by stenciling a leaf background and then die cutting a couple of leaves out of crushed curry and cajun craze. I cut the card front down a bit and centered on the card base before adding a piece of pear pizzazz.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 47 3 (556x640)

The stamped sentiment is from a Reverse Confetti set that I have had about three years. The original sentiment said “Happy Fall” but I masked off the happy and stamped the fall. I added a die cut hello and a bit of twine on the leaves and I was done!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 47 4 (640x297)

I am entering this card in the following challenges: CAS(E) this Sketch (sketch), Paper Players (color) and Addicted to CAS (theme).

Nuts About You...

Yay! It’s Wednesday! Turkey day tomorrow and no work for the rest of the week! I love it!  

Today’s card is one that we made at a recent card club.

Www.seejanestamp.com 1 (640x543)

We started off by stamping and punching acorns. I use the term “we” loosely.  The demo had a bunch already done so a few of us took advantage of that and nabbed some acorns for our cards. We stamped the leaf and then used a variety of inks to sponge on the paper to make it look fallish.

Www.seejanestamp.com 2 (640x445)

A piece of burlap and thread and I was done.

Thanks for stopping by today! Stop by tomorrow if you can manage it after stuffing yourself with turkey!
