Retro Rubber Challenge 147...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s Anything Goes!

I started with the beautiful stamp set from the Greetery called Pine Blossom from 2019.  These are builder stamps and they stamp quickly and easily!  I used a variety of inks and love how the colors work together!

I die cut with my mini scalloped stitched ovals and popped up over some lace on the card base of rustic cream.  I added the sentiment and was done!

Retro Rubber Challenge 146...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  This time around we want you to use black, orange and white on a card.

RRCB 146

Because it’s October and with these colors, I would normally make a Halloween card but I just wasn’t feeling it.  Instead I opted to make a sweet romantic card.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 146 1 (640x538)

I started by adding some plaid paper to my white card base and then adding a strip of pumpkin pie and a curvy piece of black.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 146 2 (640x364)

I stamped the image and sentiment (both from Papertrey Ink Fancy Footwork 2013) and was done.

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!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 235 1 (584x640)

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.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 235 2 (640x319)

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

#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!
