Stitched Up For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a theme to use stitching or sewing.

#235 9.25.20

I admit this one was a hard one for me!  I had to search through my stamps and dies pretty thoroughly but then I found these cute bobbin dies and voila – an idea was born!

I die cut the bobbins and added the twine and thread.  Then I stamped the sentiment on the pattern paper (perfectly suited with the cross stitched images) and a bit on one of the bobbins.

I added the bobbins and a few pearls and was done.  I love what I came up with!

Retro Rubber Challenge 134...

It’s a new Retro Rubber challenge and it’s all about flowers!

RRCB 134

I started by stamping the sweetbriar rose image from Stampin’ Up! (from 2015) in black.  Then I stamped images from the SU! French Foliage stamp set (2012) in pinks and greens.

I ran thru the linen plate and die cut with my cross stitch rectangles.  Finally I added a sentiment, a strip of ribbon and pearls.

Retro Rubber Challenge 128...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color challenge to use red, pink and white on a card.

RRCB 128

I started by die cutting my heart die out of cherry cobbler twice and then layered them together for a bit of depth.  I punched some hearts out of pink pirouette to layer on the die cut as well.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 128 1 (571x640)

I stamped the sentiment (from Clearly Besotted Message Me circa 2016) and die cut on a washi tape die.  I popped it up on the hearts and added a sweet little pink one on it before adding some rhinestones for sparkle.

Love For AYSI...

Welcome to a new challenge at As You See It!  We have a love theme for this go around so I went pretty clean and simple (naturally!).

#217 1.17.20

I started with a die cut heart out of white paper before adding an ombre of sweet sugarplum ink to it. 

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 217 1 (623x640)

I added the sentiment and then popped it up on a base of sweet sugarplum with a bit of white twine tied around it.

Retro Rubber Challenge 118...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  We have a fun sketch for you to try!

RRCB 118

I started with a doily stamp out of lemon lime twist ink and then added the sentiment.  These stamps are from Close To My Heart Love Doily and I have had since at least 2015.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 118 1 (539x640)

I die cut the card front and the lemon lime twist card stock using my MFT pierced squares.  Then I added the twine and a bow to take the place of a button!

Retro Rubber Challenge 116...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber and it is a delightful tic tac toe.

RRCB 116

I bounced around for a while before finally deciding which row I was going to tackle.  I ended up with the pattern paper/romance/enamel dots or gems.  I started with a card base of balmy blue and added this sweet piece of butterfly pattern paper.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 116 1 (564x640)

Then I die cut and embossed the arch using my inspiration impression plate right after I added the sentiment.  My apologies if the impression plate is hard to see – it is various inspirational words.  It did not photo well at all!  My sentiment comes from my PTI ways to say I love you from 2017.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 116 2 (640x442)

I popped up the arch and then added my rhinestones and dots.

Golden For HOC...

It’s a lovely new challenge at House of Cards!  For this challenge you must use gold or pearl accents or the colors in the challenge image.

November Gold and Pearl Accents and or colors

I opted for a gold and white theme.  I started with three die cuts of wine glasses and a congratulations sentiment.

Something about gold makes me think of happy occasions and we are entering the holiday season so it seemed appropriate.

Hearts And Flowers For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It.  Fill in this blank:  My first stamp or craft tool was:  a crimper!  Or the brayer – I think I bought them at the same time.

#169 2.9.18

It was fun to bust out my crimper tool.  I ran a couple of pieces of cardstock thru the crimper before adding to my card base.  Are you familiar with a crimper?  It’s a tool that corrugates paper.  It’s really a cool way to get some texture on your card so one would think I would use it more!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 169 1 (548x640)

For my image, I stamped the lovely little bouquet and then colored with my chalks.  I added the sentiment and linen thread after I added a bit of blue chalk around the image.  It’s hard to see the blue but in real life it gives a nice antiquey feel to the card.

February House Of Cards...

Happy February!  It’s a new challenge at House of Cards.  Use the colors or create a valentine background or both.

February Valentine background colors

I used a bit of both the colors and the background.  I started by using some versamark ink and a heart filled vine to stamp in the middle of the card.

Then I die cut and stamped the two beakers, adhered them, and then added the sentiment and some hearts and rhinestones.

Retro Rubber Challenge #79...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  Use the beautiful picture for your inspiration and create a card.

RRCB 79

I opted to use the colors to inspire me.  I love the pink, gold and white combination.  So I started by die cutting this leaf pattern and backing it with gold paper.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 79 1 (528x640)

I added the sentiment and a few hearts before adhering to the card base.  My sentiment stamp is from the 2016 Clearly Besotted Message Me stamp set.
