I opted to go with blue, pink and tan and created my own plaid design.  Once I had it done – I thought that is a lot of plaid!  So I cut down a piece and decided to show it off thru a chevron cut out die.

I ran the card base of Sahara sand thru the linen plate, added some pink ribbon and attached the chevron/plaid over it.  I finished off the card with a sentiment from my Papertrey Ink It’s The Thought stamp set from 2016.

Sunset Silhouettes For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a color challenge to use petal pink, polished pink, orchid oasis and starry sky.

Using the required colors, I did a little blending of the colors using my linen stencil.  I then die cut the paper to create the background for my flower silhouette.

I used my SU! harvest dies to die cut the flower from starry sky paper and then adhered to the blended paper.  I layered on white card stock and then popped up a sentiment as the final touch.  I loved how this turned out.

For my card today, I pulled out a House Mouse stamp from 2020 and paired it up with a sentiment from my Papertrey Ink Christmas Critters sentiments from 2016.  This was such a happy accident as I was searching for the perfect sentiment and found it!

I stamped the image and then colored with my alcohol markers.  I die cut and then layered on poppy parade, old olive, mango melody and soft suede card stock.

Feeling Blue For AYSI...

#273 4.22.2022

I started by stenciling a harlequin background out of crumbcake on a piece of vanilla cardstock that I then die cut.  I stamped the sentiment in night of navy and the flower out of balmy blue and pacific point.

I backed the flower with some pacific point pattern paper and then layered up on balmy blue and the night of navy card base.  A little dab of twine and I was done!

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.

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.

Pack Your Bags...

I had time this weekend to make up a card that fits three challenges.  I am playing along with The Paper Players (theme challenge of love and friendship), The Card Concept (I was inspired by the colors to make my clean and layered card) and Sunday Stamps (that provided the sketch)!

Www.seejanestamp.com cc pp ss 1

I dug out my PTI pack your bags stamp set that hasn’t seen the light of day in a long while for the sentiment and used my dies to cut two pieces of luggage that I adhered to a white card front.

Www.seejanestamp.com cc pp ss 2

I die cut the card front and a piece of pattern paper and arranged them according to the sketch.  Finally, I added the sentiment which could be used for love or friendship.  This was a fun card to make but it was because these three challenges worked beautifully together.

Supplies:  CS:  PTI white and pattern paper.  SU! old olive.  Stamps:  PTI pack your bags.  Dies:  SU! stitched rectangles.  PTI linen and pack your bags.


Mimosas For AYSI...

I started by stamping and die cutting the mimosa flowers in calypso coral and soft succulent.  I die cut a brick layer in the white and backed with evening evergreen.

I adhered everything together and then popped up the sentiment (stamped in evening evergreen) on the card.

A Snowman In Winter...

I have not played along with any challenges in I don’t know how long but mojo struck so I thought I would give it a try!  I am playing along with the sketch from The Paper Players and the colors from The Card Concept.  It’s a clean and layered card and I am quite pleased with the results.

I started with stamping the fence in Sahara sand and soft suede directly on the card base.  I stamped the snowman in London fog and added the hat, arms, and face before die cutting it. 

Www.seejanestamp.com pp cc 1

I stamped, cut and then added the bits of garland and a couple of birds to the fence before adding the snowdrift and snowman.  The sentiment is contrary to a snowman’s wishes – he would want cold blessings!

This card really came together for both challenges – the sketch showcases the colors and wintery inspiration for the card.

Retro Rubber Challenge 174...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge to kick off the new year and we are using colors from the 1950s.  We have to use three of these five colors – pastel pink/yellow/green/blue/turquoise.

RRCB 174

I opted for four of the colors and took advantage of using some 1950s style stamps as well.  These stamps are all from Pink Persimmon’s Hello Vintage Girl (2011), Style Girl (2012) and Classic Pattern (2013).  I stamped all the images and then colored in the scissors and the very stylish lady.

I started by stamping trees?, leaves? from my Simon Says Stamp One With Nature stamp set from 2015.  I colored using the required colors and then die cut the images.

I stamped the sentiment and then ran the card base thru the linen plate before adding the images and a few dots.  Easy peasy.  Clean and simple.
