Retro Rubber Challenge 185...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  This time we are charged with using circles on a card.

RRCB 185

I started by stenciling a background of circles out of lemon lime twist and Tahitian tide inks.  I stamped the sentiment from my SU! forever lovely stamp set from 2019.

I die cut a stitched circle for the sentiment and backed with lemon lime twist.  Finally, I die cut the stenciled background and popped up on Tahitian tide after adding a bit of twine and some bling.

Martini Mice For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a theme challenge to use beverages on a card.

#276 6.3.2022

Now wine is my favorite beverage but I do love a martini now and again.  I love House Mouse stamps and have had this stamp for many a year and thought it would be perfect for this challenge.  I stamped the image and colored with my alcohol markers.

I die cut the image and then popped it up on some granny apple green cardstock with a bit of thick linen trim.  I added the fun sentiment and was done!

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a recipe challenge to use a die cut, subtle colors, embossing folder, something shiny and something that starts with a b.

#275 5.20.2022

I started by water coloring some paper with a light yellow and turquoise.  I ran the paper thru an embossing folder and crimped edge die cut.

I stamped two bottles in coordinating colors and die cut them.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment and layered everything up with some bling for my shiny bit.

Butterfly Sketches For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a sketch challenge.

#272 4.8.2022

I started by using my butterfly cover plate which has five rows of butterflies.  Perfect for this sketch!  I adhered it to a crumbcake card base and added the sentiment.

I punched some bitty butterflies in bright colors and then adhered randomly.  A bit of bling completes the card.

Staying Dry For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a speed challenge to stay dry. 

#271 3.25.2022

When I saw the challenge, I ordered this sweet house mouse stamp to use.  I also knew I was going to spend a lot of my time coloring.  So I did a bunch of dry runs by stamping and timing myself coloring.  I got it down to just over seven minutes for the image.  I did that by lining up the markers in order of use and keeping the caps off.  (I hope I didn't break the rules by doing that!)

I always keep a ton of white cardstock prepped and ready for card bases.  So I grabbed one of those and a stitched circle die cut that I have had in my scrap white paper for some time.

I had a scrap of pattern paper that I used to draw my colors from and just had to adhere and cut off the extra.  I looped some twine and added the image.  I was just pressing down on the sentiment when the bell rang so I considered that a win.  I only timed myself with the coloring so the rest was going to be up to chance and I got lucky enough to get the sentiment on, as I had saved that for last.

This was a fun challenge and really made me think up hacks to get a nice card done in the allotted time.

Retro Rubber Challenge 178...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s Anything Goes!

RRCB 178

I actually started this card for another challenge and never used it so I dug it out and finished it off for this challenge.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 178 1

I stamped a brushstroke of granny apple green and added a leaf vine in granny apple green as well.  I stamped the flower image in granny apple green, highland heather and gorgeous grape and then die cut.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 178 2

I die cut the sentiment strip and then adhered everything together.  I added a few bits of bling for interest.  The stamps I used were all retro and from 2015 – PTI brushed off, choose joy and bitty bouquets.

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.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 270 1

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.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 177 1

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. 

Www.seejanestamp.com pp cc 1

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.
