Golden For HOC...

It’s a lovely new challenge at House of Cards!  For this challenge you must use gold or pearl accents or the colors in the challenge image.

November Gold and Pearl Accents and or colors

I opted for a gold and white theme.  I started with three die cuts of wine glasses and a congratulations sentiment.

Something about gold makes me think of happy occasions and we are entering the holiday season so it seemed appropriate.

October Autumn Flowers and or colors

As usual, I did a smidge of both.  I started with a sunflower that I stamped in daffodil delight and peekaboo peach.  I love the depth that I get from the peach ink.

I added the leaves and the sentiment before drawing a line and dots in the opposite corner to balance the card.  Finally, I ran through the trusty linen impression plate.

Blues For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  I love a good color challenge and this is it!  Use dapper denim, Bermuda bay and lemon lime twist on your card.

#185 9.21.18

I started by slanting a piece of dapper denim that I topped with a slice of white card stock and Bermuda bay across my card base.  I liked how the white separated those colors and makes the blue kind of float.

I die cut some wheat using the dapper denim and lemon lime twist and adhered to the card.  Finally, I added a sentiment.

September House Of Cards...

Welcome to a new challenge at House of Cards!  As always, we have a fun challenge with making either a birthday card, using the colors or both.

September Birthday theme and or colors

My apologies to my teammates and to you for the late post today!  You know when you wake up in the middle of the night and wonder what day it is?  And then remember you were supposed to have a card made and a post up for today?  Yep!  That was me!  But better late than never!

Www.seejanestamp.com Sept HOC 1 (580x640)

I went for the birthday card with a bit of the colors thrown in.  I dug out some of my funky patterned paper and adhered to a base of white.

I accidently shorted the striped piece but I love the result – it adds a bit more something something to the card.  I added the sentiment and then ran the card through the linen impression plate.

Patterns For House Of Cards...

The first day of August means it’s a new challenge at House of Cards.  The challenge for this month is to use pattern paper, the colors in the challenge image, or both.

August Patterned Paper and or colors

I opted to use pattern papers for this challenge.  I found some lovely coordinating papers and cut strips that I adhered to a base of lost lagoon.

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc august 1 (530x640)

I debated about how to add a sentiment and finally landed on using a strip of cardstock and attaching it to the bottom of the card.  I feel like it gives a bit of weight to all of the patterns.

A few rhinestones for some sparkle and I was done.

Welcome to a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s a photo inspiration so you can use either the colors or the items in the photo to create your card.

I opted for the colors, creating a bit of a patriotic theme with some stars and stripes but using a sentiment that is distinctly not patriotic.

I added a few papers from my stash to a base of rustic cream cardstock and then die cut with a double stitched die.

I trotted out my trusty umbrella die and whipped up three umbrellas using the inspiration colors.

I added the sentiment from the SU! weather together stamp set from 2016.  I love the font and the saying so much.  And yet, it’s the first time I have used the saying!  Shame on me!
