Sketch Challenge

Retro Rubber Challenge 180...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a sketch challenge!

RRCB 180

I had many stops and starts on this one and ended up with something super clean and simple.  More simple than I intended for sure!  I cut some pattern papers and backed with crisp cantaloupe and adhered to the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from my Neat and Tangled Scandinavian Flowers stamp set from 2015, die cut and popped up on the card.  Done after about three hours of different ideas.  Sometimes I find the simpler the sketch, the harder it is.  Too many options!  Hopefully you won’t be stymied!

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.

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.

I added some linen thread, the chairs and the sentiment (from my SU! colorful seasons stamps circa 2017) and was done!

Pack Your Bags...

I had time this weekend to make up a card that fits three challenges.  I am playing along with The Paper Players (theme challenge of love and friendship), The Card Concept (I was inspired by the colors to make my clean and layered card) and Sunday Stamps (that provided the sketch)!

Www.seejanestamp.com cc pp ss 1

I dug out my PTI pack your bags stamp set that hasn’t seen the light of day in a long while for the sentiment and used my dies to cut two pieces of luggage that I adhered to a white card front.

Www.seejanestamp.com cc pp ss 2

I die cut the card front and a piece of pattern paper and arranged them according to the sketch.  Finally, I added the sentiment which could be used for love or friendship.  This was a fun card to make but it was because these three challenges worked beautifully together.

Supplies:  CS:  PTI white and pattern paper.  SU! old olive.  Stamps:  PTI pack your bags.  Dies:  SU! stitched rectangles.  PTI linen and pack your bags.


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.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies:  CS:  PTI white.  SU! real red.  Inks:  Memento London fog and black.  SU! soft suede, Sahara sand, mossy meadow, real red and pumpkin pie.  Dies:  MFT stitched snowdrifts.  PTI linen plate and fence line – winter.  Memory Box resting birds.  Stamps:  PTI fence line – winter and just sentiments – warmth.


Best Fishes For AYSI...

It’s a new year and a new challenge at As You See It!  A lovely sketch challenge to kick off the year!

#266 1.14.2022

I started by die cutting two triangles, one in white and one in pattern paper.  I cut the base down to make a 4 X 4 card to create a cozier looking card.

I stamped the jar, fish, ribbon and sentiment and then die cut and adhered together.  I used a bit of pool party for the water in the jar.  I popped the jar and sentiment up and added some clear dots to look like bubbles.  I quite like how it all came together.

Retro Rubber Challenge 172...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  A lovely sketch challenge!

RRCB 172

I die cut three pieces of various pattern paper with my shiplap die.  I stamped and colored my llama image from Lawn Fawn Winter Alpaca circa 2015.  I die cut the llama and the little triangle banner and was ready to put the card together.

I adhered the pattern paper, stamped the sentiment and then added my llama and banner along with a bit of bling.  I was super excited how this all came together for the sketch!

Fall Leaves For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  Time for a sketch challenge so I went with a fall theme.

#260 10.1.2021

I stamped my branch and leaves in rich cocoa and then used alcohol markers to color.  I drew inspiration from the pattern paper for the leaves.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 260 1

I die cut the card front and then added a piece of early espresso to back it and the sentiment strip. I continued that theme with my pattern paper.  A bit of bling and I was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge 167...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  We have a lovely sketch this time around.

RRCB 167

I started by stamping and die cutting my coffee cup image from my Stampin’ Up! Merry Café stamp set from 2017.  I stamped the sentiment and then die cut to put on the coffee cup instead of below the image.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 167 1

I die cut a curved edge and added some pattern paper to make the basic part of the sketch and then added the coffee cup.  I used some punched leaves and a bit of bling to take the place of the sentiment since I used that on the coffee holder.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 167 2

I was quite pleased with the outcome but full truth – totally not a fan of pumpkin spice.  I love the color and pumpkins but it’s a firm no to the flavor.  So for all of you pumpkin spice lovers – this one’s for you!

I die cut a piece of ombre patterned paper and adhered to the card base.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 254 1

I stamped and die cut the lighthouse and then did the sentiment.  I like the pairing of colors between the ombre and the green stripes.  I added a few birds and was done.
