Fill In The AYSI Blank...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It and it is a fill in the blank.  (that I got to create!)  My go to die or punch that I use most often is the linen impression plate.  But I think you all could have guessed that!  I love it because it adds a smidge of texture and makes the card feel a little more upscale.

#209 9.13.19

I did a one layer card so I could show off the linen plate.  I added snowflakes and circles in soft colors and then ran the card thru the linen plate.  Even though it is hard to see! aysi 209 1 (546x640)

I stamped the sentiment, die cut it, and popped it up on the card. aysi 209 2 (640x459)

It's always a bit difficult to see the texture from the linen plate so here is a picture of what it looks like. aysi 209 3 (640x474)

A July Christmas For AYSI...

We have a fun new challenge at As You See It!  And it’s one that I created – we have a recipe challenge for you.  Use the following on your card:  die cut, red, stars, ribbon and make it a Christmas card.

#204 7.5.19

I wiped out three of those requirements in one move – a red star die cut. aysi 204 1 (531x640)

Then I added a bit of silver ribbon and a holiday sentiment and was done!  I used my spray adhesive to adhere the star to the card front and it looks a little cobwebby.  LOL. aysi 204 2 (640x453)

Retro Rubber Challenge 114...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  We are partnering with the Double Trouble Challenge.  Yay!

RRCB 114

Our theme is Christmas in July so all you have to do for our challenge is to make a Christmas card using at least one stamp older than a year.

The Double Trouble challenge requirements are:

  • Thing 1 – Double Trouble:  Make a square card, scrapbook page, gift box or use squares on your project.
  • Thing 2 – Double Dare:  Use a rubber or acrylic stamp older than one year.
  • Thing 3 – Twisted Sister:  If you create a beach scene with Santa you can earn an extra chance to be in Double Trouble’s random draw.

I stamped a branch and pinecones from my Papertrey Ink peaceful pinecones stamp set that I have had since 2012. rrcb 114 1 (611x640)

Then I diecut a square around my image and backed it with a garden green scalloped square.  I popped the image up on the card base and added the sentiment around the square.  A few pearls finished it off! rrcb 114 2 (640x474)

Be sure to play along with both challenges.  Link up HERE for RRCB and HERE for DTC.
