Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 84 1 (540x640)

I added the sentiment from the SU! weather together stamp set from 2016.  I love the font and the saying so much.  And yet, it’s the first time I have used the saying!  Shame on me!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 84 2 (640x522)

I adhered everything to white and then to a crumbcake card base.

Kindness...

It’s time for a new challenge at As You See It!  Amanda created a lovely color challenge to use smokey gray, tranquil tide and powder pink or equivalents to those colors.

#172 3.23.18

I started with a base of smokey slate that I ran thru my linen impression plate.  I added a die cut card front of white to house my sentiment.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 172 1 (640x540)

I die cut the word kindness out of tranquil tide and pink pirouette.  I layered together and adhered to the white die cut.  Unfortunately, no matter how I photographed my card, it is really hard to see the tranquil tide.  You just have to trust me!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 172 2 (640x416)

I added the quote and a few dots/rhinestones and was done.
