Oopsie Daisy For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a theme challenge for spring flowers. 

#270 3.11.2022

I love daisies and opted to stamp and die cut some orangish daisies.  Then I did a postage stamp square out of cork to pop the daisies on.

I die cut a stitched rectangle out of mango melody that I ran through both my linen impression plate and my tin type impression plate.  I stamped and popped up the sentiment, added some bling and was done!

Retro Rubber Challenge 177...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a tic tac toe challenge!  I opted for pattern paper/die cut/4X4.

RRCB 177

I cut down my pale papaya cardstock to 4 inches by 4 inches and ran through the linen impression plate.  I also die cut a white card front so that I can use as my background.  I die cut some pattern paper and adhered to the card front.

I stamped, colored and die cut the flowers and popped up on the card front after I had wrapped some twine and added the sentiment.  The sentiment is my retro stamp which is from Clearly Besotted 2015.

Retro Rubber Challenge 176...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s time for a sketch challenge.

RRCB 176

I started by die cutting three chairs in sahara sand, granny apple green, and misty moonlight.  I used some misty moonlight and sahara sand inks to create the horizontal piece that the sketch required.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 176 1

I added some linen thread, the chairs and the sentiment (from my SU! colorful seasons stamps circa 2017) and was done!

A Snowman In Winter...

I have not played along with any challenges in I don’t know how long but mojo struck so I thought I would give it a try!  I am playing along with the sketch from The Paper Players and the colors from The Card Concept.  It’s a clean and layered card and I am quite pleased with the results.

I started with stamping the fence in Sahara sand and soft suede directly on the card base.  I stamped the snowman in London fog and added the hat, arms, and face before die cutting it.

I stamped, cut and then added the bits of garland and a couple of birds to the fence before adding the snowdrift and snowman.  The sentiment is contrary to a snowman’s wishes – he would want cold blessings!

This card really came together for both challenges – the sketch showcases the colors and wintery inspiration for the card.

Retro Rubber Challenge 174...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge to kick off the new year and we are using colors from the 1950s.  We have to use three of these five colors – pastel pink/yellow/green/blue/turquoise.

RRCB 174

I opted for four of the colors and took advantage of using some 1950s style stamps as well.  These stamps are all from Pink Persimmon’s Hello Vintage Girl (2011), Style Girl (2012) and Classic Pattern (2013).  I stamped all the images and then colored in the scissors and the very stylish lady.

I would say I went with punny and maybe a bit silly.  I stamped this crazy frog image and colored with my alcohol markers.
