Birthday

Retro Rubber Challenge 227...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge to use white, blue, brown and black.

RRCB 227

I opted for a clean and simple masculine birthday card.  I die cut a piece of boho blue and crumbcake with my shiplap die.

I stamped the image from my SU! Artistically Asian stamp set (from around 2016) onto white, then adhered my shiplap pieces and stamped the image again.  I finished the card with the birthday sentiment from Clearly Besotted Message Me (2016).

Speedy Spring For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a speed challenge to use spring flowers!

#319 3.15.24

I dug out this spring flowers stamp set that I have had for a long time and never used.  I thought I could finally beat this challenge and make a card in about 6 minutes (I know we have 10 minutes but I always seem to need the whole 10 minutes).  I did not think this through.  LOL.

The image stamping (and linen plate) took about 3 minutes – I took a quick peek at the timer and thought I can do this – just the coloring left!  Umm…no I couldn’t.  I spent the next 6 minutes and 53 seconds coloring.  Maybe next time!  Time left:  7 seconds.

Retro Rubber Challenge 216...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a tic tac toe and I opted for masculine, leaves and die cut.

RRCB 216

I leaned in heavy on using pattern papers for this challenge.  I have been sick with migraines and then I caught the crud and my energy levels are low.  So I am super clean and simple on this card.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 216 1

I die cut papers that coordinated and had leaves on them.  I popped them up over some linen thread and then added the sentiment.  This card works perfectly for my brother’s upcoming birthday.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 216 2

The sentiment is from my Art Impressions Dance It Out stamp set from 2020.

Retro Rubber Challenge 205...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a fun sketch to try!

RRCB 205

I started by stamping random circles in sweet sorbet, parakeet party and Tahitian tide in the upper corner of my white card front.  The circles are from My Favorite Things Party Patterns and I have had over 10 years.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 205 1

I die cut triangles and then stamped the sentiment on the white card front.  The sentiment is from Paper Smooches sentiment sampler from over 10 years ago.  I attached the card front to a base of parakeet party and then popped up the triangles to follow the sketch.

Retro Rubber Challenge 203...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a theme challenge to make a birthday card!

RRCB 203

I dug through my stash and stumbled across this old stamp set from Simon Says Stamp called Tag Sayings.  It is from 2013 and had some fun birthday themed stamps and tag dies.  Score!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 203 3

I stamped the birthday sentiment and then die cut with the tag die.  I added some confetti type washi on the bottom of the tag and then cut two more out of poppy parade and pool party.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 203 4

I added some twine to the tags and popped up on the soft stone card base.  Some little stamped balloons that I colored with alcohol inks finished off the card.

Retro Rubber Challenge 187...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a tic tac toe and I opted for the die cut/copper/pattern paper.

RRCB 187

I started by die cutting the sketchy star out of copper foil paper.  I used my wonky dies on some pattern paper and completed my requirements for the tic tac toe.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 187 1

I layered everything and popped up the copper star before adding the sentiment from my Papertrey Ink Simple Stars stamp set from 2014.

Leafy Belated Wishes For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a speed challenge to make a belated birthday card.

#277 6.17.2022

I colored my leaf stamp with my zig markers and then spritzed with water before stamping on a piece of watercolor paper.  I cut a piece of pattern paper and a piece of rustic cream to back the leaf image.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 277 1

Then I cut a piece of burlap and a piece of pear pizzazz ribbon and layered everything together.  I added a few colored dots and the sentiment, did a bit of black splatter and was done.  With 8 seconds left!

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge and celebrates colors of the 60s.  We need to use three of these colors – bright orange, green, pink, purple or yellow.

RRCB 179

Both the sentiment and image are from Art Impressions Golden Oldies and are from 1996.  It’s hard to believe I have had them that long.  I stamped up the Eunice image and colored in with my alcohol markers.  I die cut around Eunice and a piece of granny apple green.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 179 1

I stamped the sentiment and then cut a piece of pumpkin pie to back it.  I adhered everything to the crumbcake card base and added a bit of bling to finish off the card.

Best Fishes For AYSI...

It’s a new year and a new challenge at As You See It!  A lovely sketch challenge to kick off the year!

#266 1.14.2022

I started by die cutting two triangles, one in white and one in pattern paper.  I cut the base down to make a 4 X 4 card to create a cozier looking card.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 266 1

I stamped the jar, fish, ribbon and sentiment and then die cut and adhered together.  I used a bit of pool party for the water in the jar.  I popped the jar and sentiment up and added some clear dots to look like bubbles.  I quite like how it all came together.
