I Scream You Scream For July HOC...

Happy July 1st!  A new month and a new challenge at House of Cards.  Use a popsicle or other food item and/or the colors in the challenge image.

July Popsicle or Food Image and or colors

I found a scrap of this fun pattern paper and decided to let it do all the talking.  So I die cut it using a stitched rectangle and popped it up on a base of crumbcake.

Then I stamped the sentiment and and die cut it with my washi tape die and backed with a piece of melon mambo.  I added some fun twine at the top for interest!

May House Of Cards...

Happy May Day!  It’s a new challenge at House of Cards!  The challenge is to make a shaped card or use the colors in the image or both.

May Shaped card colors

I opted to make a shaped card.  I started with a mini stitched scallop circle for my shape and quickly cut my card out.

Retro Rubber Challenge 84...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  We have an inspiration challenge to use either the color or items from the image on a card.

RRCB 84

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

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 84 1 (540x640)

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!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 84 2 (640x522)

I adhered everything to white and then to a crumbcake card base.

April House Of Cards...

I’m not fooling when I tell you it’s a new challenge at House of Cards!  The challenge is to either use florals in the corner or the colors or both.  Oh, and try to keep it clean and simple.  I am not sure how I did but I loved what I came up with!

April CAS Floral corner colors

I started with a base of early espresso that I ran thru the linen impression plate.  I added a couple of pieces of pattern paper that I backed with a bit of black.

Www.seejanestamp.com HOC April 1 (584x640)

I added this lovely sentiment and some pearls.  I did get some florals in the corner as well as some of the colors so I think I did pretty good!

Kindness...

It’s time for a new challenge at As You See It!  Amanda created a lovely color challenge to use smokey gray, tranquil tide and powder pink or equivalents to those colors.

#172 3.23.18

I started with a base of smokey slate that I ran thru my linen impression plate.  I added a die cut card front of white to house my sentiment.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 172 1 (640x540)

I die cut the word kindness out of tranquil tide and pink pirouette.  I layered together and adhered to the white die cut.  Unfortunately, no matter how I photographed my card, it is really hard to see the tranquil tide.  You just have to trust me!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 172 2 (640x416)

I added the quote and a few dots/rhinestones and was done.

March House Of Cards...

March is coming in like a lion around here and it’s also a new challenge at House of Cards.  The challenge is to use colored pencils on dark cardstock and/or the colors in the challenge image.

March Colored Pencils on dark card colors

As usual, I did a bit of both.  I stamped the image in crumbcake ink on crumbcake cardstock and then colored with my pencils.

I added a popped up sentiment and some pearls to finish off the card.

Retro Rubber Challenge #78...

It’s a new year and a new challenge at the Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge – white on white with the use of one neutral.

RRCB 78

I really struggled with this challenge until I finally came up with this beauty.  I used a quilted impression plate and a mini scallop rectangle to die cut this “quilt”.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 78 1 (566x640)

I added a sentiment and then popped the quilt up on the white card base.  My sentiment stamp is from the 2008 Papertrey Ink Quilters Sampler sentiments.  I love this card!

January House Of Cards...

It’s a new month and a new challenge at House of Cards!  This month is mixed media and/or use the colors in the image.  I attempted to do a bit of both!

January Mixed Media Colors

I started with three quarter inch strips of coral, green and yellow.  I die cut a shape and then used embossing paste and a stencil to create a harlequin pattern on pink paper.

Retro Rubber Challenge #77...

Welcome to the last Retro Rubber Challenge of 2017!  It’s a color inspiration challenge just in time for the holiday season.

RRCB 77

I went with clean and simple and opted to use the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 77 1 (640x483)

I stamped the tree from the PTI Layered Postmarks: Holiday (from 2012) in spring moss with the script in ripe avocado.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 77 2 (640x594)

I added the sentiment and then ran the card thru the linen impression plate.  I actually set out to make a layered card with an old truck and some trees.  That ended up in the garbage.  Sometimes the card in my mind is not what it is in reality!  LOL!
