A fun new sketch challenge is at hand at As You See It!

Retro Rubber Challenge 105...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber and we have a surprise for you!  We are partnering with Try Stampin’ on Tuesday!  We are using their sketch and pairing it with our requirement to use stamps older than a year.  This is double the fun! You can link up your entry with both challenges.

I love a good sketch and this was a fun one!  I pulled out my W+9 Punny Produce: Peaches from 2014 and set to work.  I stamped the peach in black, peach parfait and pear pizzazz before die cutting the mini scalloped square.

Using my flag dies from Reverse Confetti, I die cut flags in some plaid and solid paper and stapled them together instead of running the flags across the top.  Then I popped up the mini square and added the sentiment!

Poppies For AYSI...

It’s time for a new As You See It challenge.  This is a fill in the blank challenge. 

#194 2.15.19

When I think simple, I think clean and simple.  I love a one layer card so I started with this lovely poppy image that I used my chalks on and then decided to add one small layer with my sentiment.

Retro Rubber Challenge 104...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  Jan Clothier created a fun tic tac toe challenge for us!

RRCB 104

I went with birthday, washi and butterflies!  I punched three mini butterflies using some plaid paper, perfect plum and granny apple green. 

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 104 1 (555x640)

I used several pieces of washi tape before adding the butterflies.  My sentiment, from PTI Ways to Say Birthday from 2017, is stamped on a washi tape die cut that I popped up for some visual interest.  I finished off with a bit of bling.

#193 2.1.19

I started with a card base of white and added some pattern paper in both dots and stripes.  The pattern paper is poppy parade so I added a bit of solid poppy parade to separate the patterns.

I added a cut card front and a bow to finish all the requirements!

RRCB 101

I started with a sweet snowman family stamp from Anita’s Stamps from 2002.  I used my SU! markers to color the images and then added a bit of chalk in the background.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 101 1 (640x527)

I stamped the sentiment (Clearly Besotted Message Me 2016) and then die cut with my pierced rectangles.  I layered a couple of pierced rectangles and then adhered on top of a couple of other rectangles.  Everything was run thru the trusty linen impression plate.

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.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 100 1 (596x640)

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.
