Help us celebrate 100 challenges!!

I am so excited to be celebrating 100 challenges!  When I started this challenge, I never dreamed we would still be going at 100! 

You may just be starting the blog hop or hopped here from Jan Clothier.

I opted for the balloons, ink smooshing and glitter for my card!  I am using this sweet balloon giraffe from Close To My Heart Balloon Animals from 2016.  I heat embossed it in white on a piece of water color paper.

I also heat embossed the sentiment before doing my ink smooshing.  I die cut the watercolor paper, adhered to the card base and added glitter dots and rhinestones.

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc nov 1 (549x640)

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

Retro Rubber Challenge 97...

We are starting a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s a tic tac toe courtesy of Jan Clothier.  I puzzled a bit on this one and finally went for the bottom row of animals, windows and circles.

RRCB 97

I rolled the window and circles together by die cutting a stitched circle in the card front that I popped up on the card base.

  Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 97 1 (515x640)

Before adding the card front, however, I stamped this sweet puppy and colored with my pencils.  It is from the SU! Bella & Friends.  This stamp set came out in 2016 and I purchased it as soon as I saw it that year.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 97 2 (640x500)

I added a bit of chalk around the image to ground the little guy and then stamped the sentiment on the card front.  I love the saying and always think of Toy Story when I see it.  And now I am humming the tune.

As usual, I did a smidge of both.  I started with a sunflower that I stamped in daffodil delight and peekaboo peach.  I love the depth that I get from the peach ink.

Retro Rubber Challenge 96...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber with a fun sketch by Claire Grantham!

RRCB 96

I love a great sketch so I went to town with a Christmas card.  Using pattern paper and cardstock I created the bulk of the sketch.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 96 1 (640x563)

I die cut three threes and a circle and then arranged according to the sketch.  That was when I realized I forgot about the sentiment!  So I went for it and just stamped on the patterned paper.  The sentiment is from my trusty 2016 Clearly Besotted Message Me set.

Blues For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  I love a good color challenge and this is it!  Use dapper denim, Bermuda bay and lemon lime twist on your card.

#185 9.21.18

I started by slanting a piece of dapper denim that I topped with a slice of white card stock and Bermuda bay across my card base.  I liked how the white separated those colors and makes the blue kind of float.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 185 1 (556x640)

I die cut some wheat using the dapper denim and lemon lime twist and adhered to the card.  Finally, I added a sentiment.
