Then I die cut some leaves and a flower out of pattern paper as well as one out of solid cardstock.  I adhered the tag to the base after adding some thick twine.

Retro Rubber Challenge 130...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s a fun sketch so here we go!

RRCB 130

I started by finding the sentiment and then built my card around that.  I used stamps from my PTI Summer Camp stamp set from 2012.

I stamped the sentiment and then added the three images below it.  I ran the card thru the linen plate and was done.  I think this is a really intriguing sentiment and am glad I finally used it!

Good Wishes For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  A sketch designed by yours truly!

#219 2.14.20

I started by stamping the flower image in sahara sand and then adding the purple and greens to it.  I die cut the image using my stitched nested labels and also die cut one in perfect plum.  I wanted just the strip of purple to help the image to pop off the vanilla card base.

I added a bit of pattern paper, a fancy bow paper clip and my sentiment before adding some pearls.

Inspiring Words For AYSI...

Welcome to the first As You See It Challenge of 2020!  It’s a recipe challenge to use silver, snowflakes, dry embossing, rhinestones and an inspiring sentiment.

#216 1.3.20

I started by stamping some snowflakes in light gray and then stamping the sentiment over the top in black ink.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 216 1 (575x640)

I added a piece of silver cardstock and then ran the card front thru the tin types impression plate.  After that, I die cut using a stitched rectangle and adhered to the black card base.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 216 2 (640x401)

Finally I added the rhinestones and was done!  Just a note, these photos may look a little dark – when I lighted them up, the silver was too reflective and made the dry embossing even harder to see.  (The pattern is a stitched diamond and inverted dots at the edges of the diamond.)

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.

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!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 205 1 (613x640)

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.
