Speed Challenge

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!)

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.

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!

#241 1.8.2021

Well, I have lots of scraps and they are organized with my cardstock so I just had to decide on colors and what kind of card I was going to make.  I opted for a thank you card that is going to my lovely aunt.  She recently wrote a memoir and gifted a copy to me.  I was happy I made the short list of her favorites and even happier to read the book!  I learned so much about her life!  She is a vibrant lovely person whom I adore!  Love you Aunt MaryAnn!

I stamped my sentiment and then added some scraps of blue around it.  I die cut the sentiment and then layered on some stripey pops of color.  Easy peasy!  I hope auntie loves my card as much as I love her book!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 224 1 (556x640)

I just had to use this lovely sentiment.  I have had it for several years and never used it.  Shame on me!  I die cut around it and then popped it up on the card base.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 224 2 (640x400)

Time left:  0.00.  Let me tell you - doing the multiple stamping took up more time than I thought!  I was just pressing the sentiment on the base when the alarm rang!
