Vintage Roses For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a color challenge to use melon mambo, crushed curry, granny apple green and mossy meadow.

#315 1.19.24

I stamped and heat embossed in black before water coloring using the four required colors.  This stamp lends itself to water coloring and I liked that I could soften the boldness of the colors.

I did some black speckles on the card and die cut with my deckled edges.  Finally, I added some black rhinestones before adhering to the base.

Retro Rubber Challenge 222...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a theme challenge to make a card using winter related stamps and/or papers.

RRCB 222

I started out by stamping and die cutting the bench, pillows, blanket, book and cup.  I used my Papertrey Ink Winter Bench stamp set from 2022.  I opted for some bright colors cause we all need a little bright in the winter!

I stamped the sentiment (Papertrey Ink Winter Hills (2012) and then adhered all the bits and pieces to the card front.  I couldn’t resist adding the sweet heart button as a last minute touch.

Love For AYSI...

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

#314 1.5.24

I decided to die cut the word love as my four shapes per the sketch.  I die cut three of each letter and then stacked together.  I dug out a piece of pattern paper, cut it down a bit and then used a curved edge.

I wanted to stick with the one color theme so I die cut a piece of highland heather to go under the pattern paper and then layered everything according to the sketch.  I added a few rhinestones to add a bit of bling and was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge 221...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s an inspiration challenge to let the image inspire your card.

RRCB 221

I started by running some white cardstock through my merry melody impression folder and then die cutting into a stitched rectangle.  I also die cut two boughs, intertwined them and adhered to the card front.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 221 1

I die cut silver bells, popped up on the boughs and then added the sentiment.  The sentiment is from Lil Inkers No Peeking from at least 10 years ago because I have had it that long!  I die cut around the sentiment and added some twine.  I finished off with some red rhinestones.

Christmas Stars For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a speed challenge to use stars!

#313 12.1.23

I leaned into the star theme and finished my card in 10 minutes exactly.  I started by running the cardstock thru the linen plate and then the real red and white thru the star spangled impression plate.  I adhered the three layers together.

I die cut the star and cut down a couple of pieces of bitty star paper and then adhered to the white.  I stamped the sentiment, added the gold star and then some enamel stars.  Oof!  My hands were shaking at the end!

Retro Rubber Challenge 220...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a tic tac toe and I opted for frame, snowman and trees.

RRCB 220

I started by die cutting a window frame on the front of the card.  Then I opted to do something a bit different for me by creating the scene on the inside of the card.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 220 1

I stamped the fence and swag before adding and popping up the die cut tree and snowman.  These images are from my Papertrey Ink Fence Line Winter stamp set from 2018.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 220 2

I added the sentiment (PTI Cozy Christmas 2016) and was done.  I like that the surprise is on the inside of the card!

Christmas For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a theme challenge to make a Christmas card.

#312 11.17.23

I started by die cutting the grid design in white.  I cut a piece of cherry cobbler to go behind the white.  But before I adhered them together, I ran the cherry cobbler through my sheet music impression plate.  It’s hard to see but you can just see the faint outlines of notes and staff. 

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 312 1

I then stamped the small stable and star.  I added the sentiment and some rhinestones to finish off the card.  Once it was done, I spent considerable time rethinking my color combinations but in the end, I decided to keep them.  To be honest, if I was to redo the card, I would have probably swapped out the stable color to cherry cobbler.  Hmmm…I guess I may not be as satisfied as I thought?  LOL!  Don’t you hate it when you start to second guess yourself?

Retro Rubber Challenge 219...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a fun sketch to try!

I opted to turn this sketch into a three layered tree.  I die cut the layers out of different pattern papers and an embossed piece. 

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 219 1

I adhered to the card front, added the greeting and die cut with the deckled edges.  My sentiment came from Papertrey Ink Winter Village from 2016.  Quick, clean and simple – my favorite type of card!

Freezin's Greetings For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  We have a recipe challenge to use an embossing folder, holiday, ribbon/twine, die cut and pattern paper.

#311 11.3.23

I stamped and die cut this sweet image and colored using my alcohol markers.  I love using nontraditional colors for holiday cards and this little gal needed a pop or two of color!  I die cut and embossed some bubble bath paper for my backdrop. 

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 311 1

I stamped the sentiment and then die cut it and some pattern paper to back it.  I added a bit of twine and all of the requirements were satisfied!
