Speedy Spring For AYSI...

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

#319 3.15.24

I dug out this spring flowers stamp set that I have had for a long time and never used.  I thought I could finally beat this challenge and make a card in about 6 minutes (I know we have 10 minutes but I always seem to need the whole 10 minutes).  I did not think this through.  LOL.

The image stamping (and linen plate) took about 3 minutes – I took a quick peek at the timer and thought I can do this – just the coloring left!  Umm…no I couldn’t.  I spent the next 6 minutes and 53 seconds coloring.  Maybe next time!  Time left:  7 seconds.

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!

Hobbies For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a speed challenge to tell us about your hobbies!

#307 9.8.23

I love to read and actually made a card with the one book stamp I have.  But I didn't like it.  So I changed to my other favorite hobby - cardmaking!  I have had this particular image for a while and it suits this challenge quite nicely.  

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 307 1

I stamped my image and sentiment, colored in with my alcohol markers and layered it up.  It was meant to have some dots but I knew I couldn't get them on in time so I stopped with 5 seconds to spare!

Seashells For The AYSI Seashore...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a speed challenge to use seashells on a card.

#301 6.16.23

I dug around in my stash to find some seashell stamps and was pretty happy I had some!  Lol!  I dug out my paper, inks, dies and stamps so that I was ready to go when I started the clock.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 301 1

I stamped, colored and die cut the small seashells, die cut two sand dollars out of two different card stocks and then stamped a sentiment.  I was in full panic mode because all of that took the vast majority of the clock.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 301 2

 I adhered the sand dollar and then quickly added three small seashells next to it.  I was just trying to position the yellow seashell when the clock ran out so it looks a little random but that’s how it goes.  I used all 10 minutes.

It's A Beach For AYSI...

#295 3.24.23

I pulled out everything I needed and got started.  I stamped the image in crumbcake on my card base and then colored using alcohol inks.  I ran the card front and base through my linen plate.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 295 1

I die cut with my deckled edges, adhered the ribbon to the back and then to the card base.  I added some dots and pearls and was done.  Surprisingly, I had 1 minute and 18 seconds left.

I added some sweet sorbet twine for a pop of color and layered everything up.  I was planning to add some bling but ran out of time as I was putting the last layer on the card.  Thus – I ended up with 0 seconds left!

Leafy Belated Wishes For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a speed challenge to make a belated birthday card.

#277 6.17.2022

I colored my leaf stamp with my zig markers and then spritzed with water before stamping on a piece of watercolor paper.  I cut a piece of pattern paper and a piece of rustic cream to back the leaf image.

Then I cut a piece of burlap and a piece of pear pizzazz ribbon and layered everything together.  I added a few colored dots and the sentiment, did a bit of black splatter and was done.  With 8 seconds left!

Staying Dry For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a speed challenge to stay dry. 

#271 3.25.2022

When I saw the challenge, I ordered this sweet house mouse stamp to use.  I also knew I was going to spend a lot of my time coloring.  So I did a bunch of dry runs by stamping and timing myself coloring.  I got it down to just over seven minutes for the image.  I did that by lining up the markers in order of use and keeping the caps off.  (I hope I didn't break the rules by doing that!)


Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 271 1

I always keep a ton of white cardstock prepped and ready for card bases.  So I grabbed one of those and a stitched circle die cut that I have had in my scrap white paper for some time.

I had a scrap of pattern paper that I used to draw my colors from and just had to adhere and cut off the extra.  I looped some twine and added the image.  I was just pressing down on the sentiment when the bell rang so I considered that a win.  I only timed myself with the coloring so the rest was going to be up to chance and I got lucky enough to get the sentiment on, as I had saved that for last.

This was a fun challenge and really made me think up hacks to get a nice card done in the allotted time.

#265 12.10.2021

I started by creating an ornament shape on my card front with a little bit of ink blending.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 265 1

I stamped snowflakes, added the sentiment and adhered to the card base.  I decided last second to add a bit of bling for some sparkle and was done.  Plenty of time left on the clock for me!  I had one minute ten seconds left!
