Trees For AYSI...

A fun new challenge starts at As You See It.  It is theme week and we must showcase trees!

#211 10.11.19

I started with a pear pizzazz brushstroke before adding a couple of scrub brush trees.

The trees were stamped in sweet sugarplum and pink pirouette.  I love using pinks and greens for my holiday cards.  I popped up the trees and added the sentiment.

Retro Rubber Challenge 120...

It’s time for a new Retro Rubber Challenge and it’s anything goes!  Yay!

RRCB 120

I was in a bit of a holiday mood so I went clean and simple.  I die cut a couple of pine boughs and arranged them on the card with an enamel dot for a berry.

I stamped the sentiment from my PTI Christmas critters sentiments from 2016 and added some texture with my linen plate.

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!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 209 1 (546x640)

I stamped the sentiment, die cut it, and popped it up on the card.

Www.seejanestamp.com 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.

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.

Www.seejanestamp.com 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.

The Double Trouble challenge requirements are:

I stamped a branch and pinecones from my Papertrey Ink peaceful pinecones stamp set that I have had since 2012.

Www.seejanestamp.com 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!

Retro Rubber Challenge 101...

It’s a new challenge and the last one for the year for Retro Rubber!  As it is the holiday season, we have a fun photo inspiration for you to try!

RRCB 101

I started with a sweet snowman family stamp from Anita’s Stamps from 2002.  I used my SU! markers to color the images and then added a bit of chalk in the background.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 101 1 (640x527)

I stamped the sentiment (Clearly Besotted Message Me 2016) and then die cut with my pierced rectangles.  I layered a couple of pierced rectangles and then adhered on top of a couple of other rectangles.  Everything was run thru the trusty linen impression plate.

Winter Wreath For AYSI...

#190 11.30.18

I started by die cutting several wreath branches in different greens and adhered together.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 190 1 (556x640)

I added a paper ribbon and then attached small buttons and pearls around it.  Finally I added the sentiment!

Retro Rubber Challenge 96...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber with a fun sketch by Claire Grantham!

RRCB 96

I love a great sketch so I went to town with a Christmas card.  Using pattern paper and cardstock I created the bulk of the sketch.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 96 1 (640x563)

I die cut three threes and a circle and then arranged according to the sketch.  That was when I realized I forgot about the sentiment!  So I went for it and just stamped on the patterned paper.  The sentiment is from my trusty 2016 Clearly Besotted Message Me set.

The Basics For AYSI...

We have a fun new challenge at As You See It!  This challenge is called back to basics – and it is what it says – paper, ink, and stamps.  That’s it!

#184 9.7.18

I love a great clean and simple card.  In my first holiday card of the season, I used green, red and black inks.  Can’t get any more clean and simple than that!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 184 1 (595x640)

I stamped the images in the bottom corner to leave all that lovely white space!  On which I would normally use my linen impression plate – but not today!

Christmas Leaves For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It and it’s a gorgeous sketch!

#165 12.15.17

I opted to use autumn leaves but in a Christmas style twist.  I used the Concord & 9th layering leaves and die cut them in mossy meadow, cherry cobbler, and old olive.  I die cut each one three times for added dimension and then adhered them together.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 165 1 (555x640)

I used some nice wintery paper and cut a couple of rectangles.  I layered everything together and finished off the card with a sweet sentiment and some dots and rhinestones.  I am quite tickled with how this card turned out!
