Hugs For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a color challenge to use polished pink, sweet sorbet, Tahitian tide and night of navy on your card.

#291 1.27.23

I love a good collage card and these colors are perfect for making that happen.  I stamped the floral image in night of navy and then added the background in the rest of the required colors.

I used my deckled edges to die cut the card front and a piece of night of navy to back that.  It makes a great pop of color and helps draw your eye to the images.  I added some sweet sorbet dots and was done.

Spooky Pumpkin Spice For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a fill in the blank!  For me, the spookiest thing on Halloween is always… pumpkin spice.  It’s a hard no from me on that flavor!

#286 10.21.2022

I started by stamping and die cutting a coffee cup in rustic cream with a mango melody lid and parakeet party straw.  I stamped the sentiment and then die cut the holder and attached to the cup.

I stamped a spider web to add some spookiness and popped up the cup and added some dots and rhinestones.  This card is earmarked for a dear friend who lives for pumpkin spice season.  (A good friend overlooks bad taste – lol!)

Retro Rubber Challenge 192...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a tic tac toe and I opted for the nautical/pattern paper/blue.

RRCB 192

I started by stamping the logbook, ship and anchor in night of navy.  These images are from SU! The Open Sea from 2013.  I die cut the ship and backed with a scalloped circle using night of navy cardstock.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 192 1

I stamped the sentiment from Papertrey Ink’s Get Lost (2014) and then layered everything together.  I was admiring my work when I realized I left off the pattern paper!  So I added a strip at the bottom and was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge 191...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a fun sketch to try!

RRCB 191

I started by die cutting eight coffee cups out of some pattern paper to go in the corners of the sketch.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 191 1

Then I stamped my sentiment (from Simon Says Stamp Choose Happy circa 2016) and die cut it using a pierced oval.  I die cut a piece of soft sky with the pierced rectangle and layered everything together.

Distressed For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  We have a recipe challenge and are charged with using watercolor, floral stamps, bright colors, pattern paper and a punch/die.

#281 8.12.2022

I started by watercoloring a background of bright pink.  I then stamped a black daisy image on it.  It came out distressed looking so when life gives you lemons…I decided to embrace the distress!  I grabbed some kraft cardstock for the base and roughed up the edges a bit as well as die cutting the daisy image with my deckled edges die.  Using some granny apple green pattern paper, I die cut a stitched jumbo fishtail and attached to the card base.  I attempted to distress the edges a bit but the pattern paper is thin so I gave up quickly!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 281 1

I had great debate about adding a sentiment.  By happy accident, I found one that had a bit of a distress to it which I didn’t notice at first.  I stamped the sentiment and started to panic!  I thought I had moved the sentiment and messed up the whole card – but – that is exactly the way the stamp is supposed to look – old fashioned typed lettering that is a bit off.  See, happy accident!  I popped up the daisy image then added a bit of black bling and was done.

I die cut with my deckled edges rectangles and then adhered to a card base of old olive.  I added the sentiment (from the same stamp set) and a few dots and was done!

Sunset Silhouettes For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a color challenge to use petal pink, polished pink, orchid oasis and starry sky.

#279 7.15.22

Using the required colors, I did a little blending of the colors using my linen stencil.  I then die cut the paper to create the background for my flower silhouette.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 279 1

I used my SU! harvest dies to die cut the flower from starry sky paper and then adhered to the blended paper.  I layered on white card stock and then popped up a sentiment as the final touch.  I loved how this turned out.
