Just Because

Serenity...

It’s time for a new As You See It Challenge!  It’s a sketch challenge and I loved the sketch.

#207 8.16.19

I went super clean and simple by using my sentiment as the line and sentiment.  (does that make sense? lol!)  I added three birds to sit on part of the swoop in the serenity image.

My card is one layer and I used my linen impression plate for a bit of texture (naturally!).

Beachy Times For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  LeAnne created this fun challenge for theme week which is Beaches!

#205 7.19.19

I dug out an old Lawn Fawn stamp set and created a very relaxing scene.  Who doesn’t want to be lying in a hammock on the beach?  Actually, the palm trees and hammock look like a smiling face.  LOL!

I stamped the images and then used my chalks to add the color.  I die cut the image and ran thru the linen impression plate before adhering to the kraft card base.

Retro Rubber Challenge 113...

Welcome to our new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s anything goes!

RRCB 113
I started by stamping this image from PaperTrey Ink’s Fashion Sense stamp set from 2015.  I stamped the background in black and then added the dress in flirty flamingo.  I added the sentiment across the image itself which is a bit unusual for me.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 113 1 (598x640)

I added a strip of flirty flamingo beneath the white card front and some bling as well!

Retro Rubber Challenge 111...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge

RRCB 111

Since it is a tic tac toe challenge I naturally went for the one layer card, birds and sponging.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 111 1 (543x640)

I started by using a leaf stencil and sponged peach parfait and peekaboo peach inks for the color.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 111 2 (640x535)

This beautiful bird stamp and a whimsical sentiment finished off the card.  Both the bird and sentiment came from the Close To My Heart Live Inspired stamp set that I have had for about seven years.

Two For AYSI...

It’s our 200th challenge at As You See It!  This challenge is to use two [things] on a card.  Which is harder than you think!

#200 5.10.19

I used two images, two colors, two twines and twisted the twine twice.  Say that three times fast!  Anyway…I think I met the challenge!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 200 1 (584x640)

I stamped the two balloon animals in dapper denim and lemon time twist.  I added the sentiment and the twine and was done!

Retro Rubber Challenge 109...

It’s Anything Goes at Retro Rubber

RRCB 109

I started with a funky die cut rectangle out of some musical paper.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 109 1 (584x640)

Then I flagged a couple of scraps of paper and popped them up after adding my sentiment.  I thought it appropriate given my paper!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 109 2 (640x507)

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted Message Me from 2016.  A little bling finishes the card!

Layers For AYSI...

It’s a new sketch challenge at As You See It.  And I love it!

#198 4.12.19

I started with a base of vanilla cream that I ran thru the linen plate.  Then I added a half circle of pear pizzazz and the silver thread. 

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 198 1 (640x505)

I added the flagged pattern paper and finally the sentiment on a wonky die cut.  I couldn’t resist the sweet butterfly and string of rhinestones [which look really blurry here and I could not get a good pic without that happening - sorry about that!]

Retro Rubber Challenge 108...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  The challenge requires you to either use a rainbow or rainbow colors on your card.

RRCB 108

I went clean and simple (natch!) and created a rainbow with words.  I used my nifty Papertrey Ink Be set which I have had since 2016 and started stamping!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 108 1 (563x640)

Each word is stamped in a color of the rainbow and are all things we should strive to be – right?

Ye Olde AYSI...

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

#197 2.29.19

I started with some antique looking papers from my stash and used a curved die to create the two layers for the sketch.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 197 1 (640x568)

Then I added some lace and adhered everything to the card base.  Finally, I added the sentiment and pearls and popped up on the card.

Retro Rubber Challenge 106...

A new challenge is afoot at Retro Rubber!  It is time to earn your stripes and use them on a card.

RRCB 106

This card did not turn out anything like when I started.  I was going to stamp the stripes and then ended up with pattern paper instead.  You just have to go with the flow!  I started by die cutting two stitched ovals and stamping the sentiment using my W+9 Strictly Sentiments stamp set from 2013. 

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 106 1 (541x640)

Then I flagged the ends of the striped paper (it pays to save scraps!), added some gold thread and then adhered everything together.  Finally, I popped up the sentiment and added some gold stars.
