Retro Rubber Challenge 152...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  A fun sketch so here we go!

RRCB 152

I started by die cutting a lot!  I cut the two flags, the hoop, the message strips, and the hello before adhering them all together.

I stamped the sentiment using my W+ 9 hand lettered hello stamp set from 2014.  I attached some buttons and I was good to go.  I liked this sketch, it felt a bit hard but I liked stretching my imagination!

I started by stamping several images from my SSS artsy shapes stamp set.  I stamped the images in lovely lipstick, soft suede, call me clover and daffodil delight.  Then I added the sentiment in call me clover.

I die cut the card front with my MFT wonky stitched rectangles and then backed with a piece of lovely lipstick before adhering to the card base.  I finished it off with a few rhinestones.

Retro Rubber Challenge 115...

Welcome to a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s a color challenge for purple, yellow and green!

RRCB 115

I started with a purple card base and a piece of purple pattern paper that I arranged on half of the white card front.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 115 1 (558x640)

I stamped the image using elegant eggplant, garden green and daffodil delight.  Then I snuck the sentiment in next to the stem.  I used my PTI bitty bouquets stamp set that I have had since 2015 and also used the PTI ways to say hello stamp set (2017) for the sentiment.

Finally I ran the card front thru the linen impression plate and thru my MFT blue print stitched die before adding some twine and adhering to the card base.

Poppies For AYSI...

It’s time for a new As You See It challenge.  This is a fill in the blank challenge. 

#194 2.15.19

When I think simple, I think clean and simple.  I love a one layer card so I started with this lovely poppy image that I used my chalks on and then decided to add one small layer with my sentiment.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 194 1 (548x640)

I loved how this card turned out!  Play along and link up HERE!

Confetti Rainbows For AYSI...

We have a new challenge at As You See It!  This challenge is to use every item in the challenge image on your card.  I find these challenges the hardest of all!  And I was quite stumped until I came up with this card.

#171 3.9.18

I started with a double layer of black cardstock for the wide/stripe element.  Then I die cut the word hello three times and adhered together for the one word.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 171 1 (568x640)

That left me with confetti, rainbow and stars.  I tried several different things until I finally remembered my SU! enamel dots and stars.  Presto magic – I have confetti of rainbow colored stars.  Whew!  I made it and kept it clean and simple to boot!

A Dotty Hello...

Happy Monday! I have a fun CAS card for you today that I made for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started by using a dotted line die to cut the circles in the card stock. Then I added the sentiment.

Www.seejanestamp.com fms 1 (538x640)

I stamped the flower using a bit of the rock n roll technique to get two colors of ink on the stamp to give the image a bit of dimension. Then I stamped away.

Www.seejanestamp.com fms 2 (640x610)

A smart person would have stamped first and die cut second but I was originally going to die cut the flower and pop it up instead of making a one layer card. But I quite liked what I ended up with so was pleased that I didn’t follow my original plan.

That’s it for today! Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to pop in tomorrow!

Supplies: CS: PTI white. Stamps: PTI Bitty Bouquets. W+9 Strictly Sentiments 2. Dies: PTI linen impression plate. MFT blueprints 14. Inks: PTI spring moss, ripe avocado, bright buttercup and summer sunrise. Memento black.

Retro Rubber Challenge #45...

Welcome to a new challenge at Retro Rubber! For this challenge we have a sketch that was created by DT member Claire Grantham. It’s a fun one and based on all of the design team inspiration – you can do a lot with it!


I stuck pretty close to the original. I dug out my retired SU! French foliage stamp set. It’s one of my favorites and I have had it 5 years or more. I stamped random images in wisteria wonder, lucky limeade and lost lagoon before die cutting using my stitched arch dies.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 45 1 (640x553)

I added a piece of pattern paper on my card base and then ran it thru the linen impression plate. I stamped the sentiment (from a set I have had about 3 years) and then punched it out using my SU! washi label punch. I put everything together according to the sketch and added a few enamel dots and rhinestones in place of the star on the sketch.

Happy Thursday! Can I make a pineapple relate to the Olympics? Why, yes, yes I can! Pineapples remind me of the costume that Carmen Miranda used to wear. She was an actress and singer who was very popular in Brazil and America. See? Brazil = Olympics. Mission accomplished – LOL!

Seriously, I recently bought this fun pineapple stamp and thought I would see what I could do with it. This card actually started out following a recent Freshly Made Sketches challenge but I felt like I veered off the challenge too much to enter it. So you get to see it today!

Www.seejanestamp.com aloha 1 (542x640)

I started by stamping the pineapple in yellow and then adding some orangey markings. I did a two tone top to it and then die cut around it with a stitching circle. I used some yellow twine to stitch around the circle and then backed the circle with some cork.

Www.seejanestamp.com aloha 2 (640x408)

I added the sentiment (which I know is Hawaiian and not Brazilian – LOL) and then attached to the card base.

That’s it for today! Thanks for stopping by and be sure to pop in tomorrow!

Supplies: CS: PTI white and cork. Stamps: PTI some like it hot. SU! back to basics alphabet. Inks: Memento black. PTI summer sunrise, bright buttercup, ripe avocado and spring moss. Other: PTI stitched circles. Twine.

A Flamingo Hello...
