Just Because

Stitched Up For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a theme to use stitching or sewing.

#235 9.25.20

I admit this one was a hard one for me!  I had to search through my stamps and dies pretty thoroughly but then I found these cute bobbin dies and voila – an idea was born!

I die cut the bobbins and added the twine and thread.  Then I stamped the sentiment on the pattern paper (perfectly suited with the cross stitched images) and a bit on one of the bobbins.

I added the bobbins and a few pearls and was done.  I love what I came up with!

I popped up the die cut and added this beautiful sentiment (from Papertrey Ink walk by faith - 2016) and was done!  Clean and simple.

Retro Rubber Challenge 140...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber.  A fun tic tac toe.  I opted to use blue/rectangles/pattern paper.

RRCB 140

Welcome to a new As You See It Challenge!  This one is all about vacations.  Do you have a dream vaca?  Or a favorite one that you have been on?

#229 7.3.20

When I was a kid, we would go camping in the mountains.  It never failed that where ever you put the sleeping bag, it was on a rock!  I prefer glamping (in a nice hotel) now!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 229 1 (576x640)

I used some fun outdoors paper, adhered and then die cut a rectangle.  I stamped the station wagon and camper in fun colors and then added the sentiment.

Retro Rubber Challenge 137...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  We are partnering with the Double Trouble Challenge so you can play along with both!

RRCB 137

We have a sketch challenge on which you must use at least one stamp older than a year.  The requirements for the Double Trouble Challenge are:

  • Thing 1 – Trouble Maker: 3-2-1 Recipe: 3 colors – 2 embellishments – 1 old stamp
  • Thing 3 – Twisted Sister: Follow our RRCB sketch with at least one angular shape.
  • Thing 2 – Double Dare (Optional): If you used the RRCB sketch and the 3-2-1 Recipe be sure to link your card Double Trouble’s challenge to receive an additional chance to be in Double Trouble’s random draw.

I started with a soft green polka dot panel and added a hexagon shape instead of the triangle.  I used my Rubbernecker Summer Meadow stamps that I have had for several years and colored them using some distress inks. 

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 137 1 (570x640)

I added a piece of summer starfruit paper to add a little pop and then added the sentiment (from Simon Says Stamp You Got This – 2017) and embellishments.  I followed our sketch and Thing 1 and 3 for the Double Trouble Challenge.

Retro Rubber Challenge 136...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber and we are all about the summer!

RRCB 136

As I was getting ready to make my card, I noticed a couple of my teamies used flip flops and had the same sentiment so I made it a trio because I couldn’t resist!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 136 1 (529x640)

I started by chalking a sun on the card base.  Then I die cut the flip flops and sunglasses out of fun colored paper and adhered to the card.

#226 5.22.20

Wildflowers For AYSI...

It’s a new As You See It Challenge!  It’s a speed challenge with the theme of flowers!

#224 4.24.20

I started by using a multiple stamp set of wildflowers from Rubbernecker.  I stamped the several layers in appropriate colors and then ran the card thru my linen impression plate.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 224 1 (556x640)

I just had to use this lovely sentiment.  I have had it for several years and never used it.  Shame on me!  I die cut around it and then popped it up on the card base.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 224 2 (640x400)

Time left:  0.00.  Let me tell you - doing the multiple stamping took up more time than I thought!  I was just pressing the sentiment on the base when the alarm rang!
