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).

RRCB 223

I really struggled with this challenge because I just couldn’t come up with something that I really liked.  In the end, I played around with some collage stamping which is a go to for me.

I used the required colors with my Stampin’ Up! French Foliage (2011) and Artfully Layered (2022) and my Clearly Besotted Message Me (2016).  I die cut using a postage die cut, popped it up and was done!

Vintage Roses For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a color challenge to use melon mambo, crushed curry, granny apple green and mossy meadow.

#315 1.19.24

I stamped and heat embossed in black before water coloring using the four required colors.  This stamp lends itself to water coloring and I liked that I could soften the boldness of the colors.

I did some black speckles on the card and die cut with my deckled edges.  Finally, I added some black rhinestones before adhering to the base.

I started by stamping the image using my Close To My Heart Fabulous You stamps that I have had for well over 10 years.  I colored with brown, yellow, blue and green before die cutting with my deckled edge circles.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 218 1

I popped up the image, stamped the sentiment sideways and added some pops of color with dots.

Gone Fishing For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a color challenge to use misty moonlight, copper clay, white, and a neutral.

#309 10.6.2023

I needed a retirement card and just got my gone fishing dies so perfect timing!  I started by stamping a background from my SU! gorgeous leaves stamp set.  I think it’s supposed to be a woodgrain but it is doubling for my water.  I used misty moonlight ink after I stamped it off once.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 309 1

I die cut the bobber three times in white and then once in copper clay (leftover pieces that had been woodgrain embossed).  I layered up the bobber and then added the copper clay on the bottom half and for the hook.  I stamped my sentiment and then ran it through my twisted rope embossing folder.

After that I layered the white on some black and then on the misty moonlight base.  I am super happy with the results and also hope the recipient recognizes the fishing tackle.  LOL!

Up! For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a color challenge to use poppy parade, Tahitian tide, gray granite and crumbcake.

#303 7.14.23

I started by digging out one of my favorite stamp sets – Stampin’ Up!’s Bella & Friends.  I love the images so much!  So I got to working stamping my image and coloring using my alcohol markers. 

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 303 1

I die cut a piece of gray granite to create a frame for this sweet image and then popped it up on a gray granite base.  I got all of my required colors in and am super happy with this sweet card.  A few rhinestones for bling and I was done!

I started by stamping three ice cream cones and coloring them with my alcohol markers.  These are from my Lawn Fawn Admit One stamp set from 2014.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 208 1

I die cut them and then added the sentiment from Papertrey Ink Keep It Simple Friendship from 2017.  I thought the sentiment was perfect.  A sweet treat for a sweet friend.

Colors For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a color challenge to use parakeet party, so saffron, coastal cabana and gorgeous grape on your card.

#297 4.21.23

I do love color challenges but this one was tough.  And I picked the colors for it!  What was I thinking?? LOL!  I will admit that I like how abstract these colors look together.  I started by stamping the pear image in parakeet party and adding the sentiment.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 297 1

Then I used dsp in the other three colors and die cut using my deckled edges.  I used a bit of black to transition between the papers.  I popped up the die cuts over some coastal cabana ribbon and added a couple of dots.

Retro Rubber Challenge 199...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge to use at least three of these five colors – white, cream, pink, green and silver.

RRCB 199

I started by stamping the windowpane plaid in soft sea foam on some rustic cream cardstock.  The stamp is from The Greetery in 2019.  I die cut some panels using my shiplap dies which I adhered to a card base of rustic white.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 199 1

I die cut the heart in pretty in pink and popped up over some silver string.  I added the sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Keep It Simple Valentine stamp set from 2014.  I finished off with some bling.

Hugs For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a color challenge to use polished pink, sweet sorbet, Tahitian tide and night of navy on your card.

#291 1.27.23

I love a good collage card and these colors are perfect for making that happen.  I stamped the floral image in night of navy and then added the background in the rest of the required colors.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 291 1

I used my deckled edges to die cut the card front and a piece of night of navy to back that.  It makes a great pop of color and helps draw your eye to the images.  I added some sweet sorbet dots and was done.
