Enduring Beauty For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a fill in the blank!  My latest craft purchase is the enduring beauty stamp/stencils/dies set from Stampin’ Up!

#316 2.2.24

I used the stencils to create a soft floral image and then die cut.  This stencil set is amazing and is going to get some use from me.

I die cut a piece of vellum to serve as my back drop and then added the floral image.  I stamped the sentiment and die cut along with some green leaves.  I layered everything together, added some pearls and twine and was done.

Sunflower Crates For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a fun sketch challenge!

#308 9.22.23

I started by stamping and die cutting these great images from the Stampin’ Up! Rustic Crate.  This was a must have for me when the set came out.  I colored the flowers and produce with my alcohol markers and stamped the crate.

I added some plaid dsp on white and then die cut to provide the background for my crate image.  I also cut down a piece of corresponding dsp and backed it with black before layering everything on the card.  My final step was the sentiment which was a perfect fit over the crate.

Hobbies For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a speed challenge to tell us about your hobbies!

#307 9.8.23

I love to read and actually made a card with the one book stamp I have.  But I didn't like it.  So I changed to my other favorite hobby - cardmaking!  I have had this particular image for a while and it suits this challenge quite nicely.  

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 307 1

I stamped my image and sentiment, colored in with my alcohol markers and layered it up.  It was meant to have some dots but I knew I couldn't get them on in time so I stopped with 5 seconds to spare!

Beaches For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a theme challenge to use make a beach card.

#306 8.25.23

I started by stamping some palm trees and then die cutting them in a stitched triangle shape.    I stamped a little bit of sand and used some chalks to create a little sun and blue sky.

I stamped the jeep and then fussy cut.  I was feeling the vibe of someone who drives their jeep to the beach so they can surf.  I grew up landlocked so I have no idea what that actually feels like.  Lol.   I adhered everything to the card base and added the sentiment and was done!

Retro Rubber Challenge 212...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s anything goes!

RRCB 212

I originally made this card for challenge 209 which was the summer theme challenge but ended up doing a different card for that one instead.  So this just slid right into the anything goes challenge.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 212 1

I stamped and die cut my Ferris wheel and a couple of tickets.  I used my Lawn Fawn Admit One stamp set from 2014.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 212 2

I used alcohol markers to color in the Ferris wheel with some bright colors.  I popped it on my card with the tickets and was done!

Lemony Sunshine For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a fill in the blank!  The thing I love most about summer is spending time with friends and family and enjoying a nice cold drink!

#304 7.28.23

I dug out my brand new Stampin’ Up! So Refreshing stamp set to make this card.  I stamped the images and then die cut them.  I wanted to use summery colors – yellows for the summer sunshine and purple for summer flowers.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 304 1

I started with a light lemon lolly gingham background to set the scene.  Then I added a sprig of flowers and the cloth while layering everything else up.  What is your favorite thing about summer?  I look forward to seeing what you create!

Retro Rubber Challenge 211...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a tic tac toe and I opted for emboss, die cut and beach.

RRCB 211

I started by stamping a post in crumbcake and then heat embossing the lines onto the post.  I added some sand and grasses to build the beach scene.  These are from Papertrey Ink’s fence line summer stamps from 2018.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 211 1

I stamped a bucket, die cut, popped it up and added the sentiment (from PTI’s floating by circa 2022).  A beachy one-layer card – easy peasy!

Retro Rubber Challenge 209...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a theme challenge to make a card with summer related stamps and/or paper!

RRCB 209

I started by stamping some lemons using my The Greetery Lemon Blossom stamp set from 2019.  The rest of the design team all went with a fruit theme so I had to follow along.  There is nothing better than a glass of cold lemonade on a hot summer day (unless it’s an ice cold beer!)!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 209 1

I die cut the images and a cutout in the white card front.  I used parakeet party as my base and then added the sentiment and the die cuts.  A few dots finish the card!

Seashells For The AYSI Seashore...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a speed challenge to use seashells on a card.

#301 6.16.23

I dug around in my stash to find some seashell stamps and was pretty happy I had some!  Lol!  I dug out my paper, inks, dies and stamps so that I was ready to go when I started the clock.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 301 1

I stamped, colored and die cut the small seashells, die cut two sand dollars out of two different card stocks and then stamped a sentiment.  I was in full panic mode because all of that took the vast majority of the clock.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 301 2

 I adhered the sand dollar and then quickly added three small seashells next to it.  I was just trying to position the yellow seashell when the clock ran out so it looks a little random but that’s how it goes.  I used all 10 minutes.

Retro Rubber Challenge 208...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge to use at least three of these five colors – yellow, pink/red, green, orange and brown.

RRCB 208

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.
