Just Because

Retro Rubber Challenge 95...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  For this challenge you can use the colors, the images, a school theme or a mix of them.


I went with the school theme when I actually started out planning to use apples.  But I found the fun pattern paper and went with it.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 95 1 (582x640)

I backed some pattern paper with solid cardstock and adhered to the white card base.  Then I used the ABC image from the SU! bookcase builder stamp set from 2017 to stamp a background.

I opted for a repeat pattern with different inks and then added some twine across the top.  Just a fun little fact, the surface that I use in my photos is actually an old school desktop complete with pencil tray and ink well (which you can't see).

Supplies:  CS:  SU! white, so saffron, riding hood red, and storytime dsp.  Stamps:  SU! bookcase builder (2017).  Inks:  SU! so saffron, pool party, riding hood red, and wild wasabi.  Other:  SU! crushed curry twine.

On The Go For AYSI...

We have a new challenge at As You See It that starts today!  Once again, Amanda created a fun and challenging sketch!

#183 8.24.18

I started by adding a thin piece of black cardstock to my white card base.  I thought this would be a nice substitute for the ribbon in the sketch.

Then I added three suitcases in one of my favorite colors – lemon lime twist!  I added the sentiment and then ran the card thru my linen impression plate.

These bags remind me of bags on the airport baggage carousel – except in better shape!  LOL!  The sentiment is a fun addition – because seriously – who doesn’t love going to see Grandma and Grandpa!

Retro Rubber Challenge 93...

A new challenge at Retro Rubber begins today!  We have a fun tic tac toe challenge!


I opted for the die cut/stripes/bird combo.  I started with a piece of perfect plum that I ran thru my stripes embossing folder.  Then I die cut a sweet little bird out of raspberry ripple.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 93 1 (583x640)

I stamped the sentiment (from PTI Summer Hills 2013) and then die cut with my stitched wonky dies.  I adhered the plum to the card base of crumbcake and then popped up the sentiment before adding some dots/pearls/rhinestones.

Retro Rubber Challenge #92...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  We are all about summer for this challenge.


I went with my usual super clean and simple.  I stamped a sun from the SU! Over the Rainbow set (2015) and added some sweet sunglasses (SSS Flip Flop Season – 2015) to it.

Obsessing Over AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s time to confess what I am currently obsessed with.  Easy peasy…pattern paper.  I love to hoard it and think about using it.  LOL.

#181 7.27.18

I found some paper that looks like I cut strips and added together when in reality it was a piece of pattern paper already sorted into strips.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 181 1 (640x537)

I die cut a piece and then backed with lost lagoon.  I wrapped some cantaloupe twine around the cantaloupe base and then popped the pattern paper up on it.

A sweet sentiment that nods to the travel theme in the paper finishes off the card.

July Popsicle or Food Image and or colors

I found a scrap of this fun pattern paper and decided to let it do all the talking.  So I die cut it using a stitched rectangle and popped it up on a base of crumbcake.

Then I stamped the sentiment and and die cut it with my washi tape die and backed with a piece of melon mambo.  I added some fun twine at the top for interest!
