Just Because

Let's Go Camping For AYSI...

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!

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.

Finally I added the sentiment (from my PTI flipping out stamp set from 2012) and was done.

Hey There AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It and we are all about colors!

#226 5.22.20

I started by stamping several images from my SSS artsy shapes stamp set.  I stamped the images in lovely lipstick, soft suede, call me clover and daffodil delight.  Then I added the sentiment in call me clover.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 226 1 (551x640)

I die cut the card front with my MFT wonky stitched rectangles and then backed with a piece of lovely lipstick before adhering to the card base.  I finished it off with a few rhinestones.

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!

I started by stamping different circles in the rainbow colors on the card front.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 223 1 (598x640)

Then I added the sentiment (which is not where I wanted it but I smudged some red ink on the paper and needed to cover it up – you can’t see it can you!).

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 223 2 (640x440)

I added a bit of bling and die cut the image before adhered to the crumbcake card base.

Retro Rubber Challenge 132...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  For this challenge we are all about squares!

RRCB 132

I started by cutting three 3X3 cards out of cream cardstock and using just a simple small image on them.  These came from my Stampin’ Up! Postage Collection stamp set from around 2013.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 132 5 (640x611)

Then I added some lines to make a square on the card and added a different sentiment on each card as well.  These are from my 2016 Clearly Besotted Message Me stamp set.

It’s time for a new As You See It challenge!  It’s a fun recipe card challenge.

#222 3.27.20

I started by die cutting a diagonal tag.  I ran it plus the card base thru the linen plate for some texture.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 222 1 (535x640)

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.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 130 1 (568x640)

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!
