Retro Rubber Challenge 182...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a theme challenge to use flowers on a card.

RRCB 182

I stamped this fun house mouse lilac image on crumbcake and then colored with my alcohol markers.  The stamp is the Sensory Overload from 2009.  It’s the first time I have ever used it and I shouldn’t have waited so long!

I die cut with a pierced rectangle and then backed it with heather highland.  I stamped the sentiment from my Papertrey Ink Spring Hills from 2013 before adding this beautiful purple twine.  I adhered to the base and was done.

Retro Rubber Challenge 181...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s tic tac toe!  I chose pattern paper, dry embossing and die cut.

RRCB 181

I started by running all of my paper through the linen impression plate.  Then I stamped the tulips and die cut them.  The images are from my Papertrey Ink Tulip Time stamp set from 2016.

I die cut the pear pizzazz and then ran it through the gridlines impression plate for my dry embossing.  I die cut it and the pattern paper with my mini stitched scallop rectangles.  I layered everything on my card base and added the sentiment which is from my Papertrey Ink Spring Hills stamp set from 2013 and punched out with my washi tape punch.  The dots added the final bit and I was done.

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.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 180 1

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!

It’s a new Retro Rubber challenge!  It’s anything goes.

I started with these lovely tulip stamps from Papertrey Ink (2016) that I stamped in shades of pink and green and then die cut them.

I did a plaid die cut background out of blushing bride that I popped the tulips on.  Finally, I added the sentiment from my Neat and Tangled Scandinavian Flowers from 2015.

Spring Wishes...

It’s a new week and time to play along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started by stamping my trusty daffodil stamp three times and coloring with my pencils.

Then I die cut three squares and arranged them on the card base according to the sketch. I added the sentiment and some candy dots to finish the card.

Daffy For As You See It...

Welcome to a new challenge at As You See It! This one is a fill in the blank and it was an easy blank for me to fill!

#146 3.24.15

My favorite thing about spring is the arrival of daffodils! I love seeing them – they are such a happy flower!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 146 1 (565x640)

So I used my daffodil stamp and colored in with pencils and then added a sentiment. A few enamel dots and pearls and the card was done!

Spring Daffodils...

Happy Monday! It feels forever since I have said that! I have missed my crafty time and blogging! I hope to be back on schedule with a post Monday thru Friday. Although as I write this, I only have Monday thru Wednesday covered!

Today’s card was made for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge and pairs nicely with The Card Concept challenge of spring flowers!  And it ties in nicely with the Addicted to CAS challenge - code word plaid! 

I started by stamping this wonderful daffodil flower and using chalks to color it in with a bit of chalk around the flower as well. My favorite spring flowers have to be daffodils, lilacs, and tulips! They look so happy!

Www.seejanestamp.com fms 1 (640x538)

I flipped the sketch a bit by putting my plaid paper and soft sky trim on the right side with the image and sentiment on the left. I ran the card front thru the linen impression plate and thru the scallop rectangle die before popping up on crumbcake.

Retro Rubber Challenge #36...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge! We have a theme challenge for you and it’s all about water. Just use water themes on your card or do some watercoloring and you are in!

RRCB 36

I used my favorite little umbrella die for this challenge and some sunny colors. I die cut the umbrella in crumbcake and some polka dot paper and did a little paper piecing. Then I made a puddle out of marina mist to stage the umbrella and the sentiment.  I have had both the stamps and dies for a couple of years now.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 36 1 (571x640)

I die cut a small stitched cloud out of soft stone and a small stitched sun to peak out behind it. I layered the card front on a piece of crushed curry and then onto the crumbcake base.

A Trio Of Tulips...

Happy April Fool’s Day! How many tricks do you plan to play on people today? Well, it’s no joke, but I will have two posts today and this is the first one!

Welcome to the House of Cards Challenge! This month we have a color challenge with a bit of a twist. You can make a card with script or with these colors or both! I did a bit of both!

4 HOC April 2016 use script and or colors

I started by stamping these fun tulips in two shades of pinks and then ran the image thru the fishtail flag.

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc apr 1 (538x640)

I die cut two other flags, one in vanilla and one in script paper. I layered them and attached to the card base. I debated for a long time about a sentiment and, in the end, left the front blank.

Tulips In The Spring...

Welcome to Monday! Today’s card was made for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge. It also qualifies for the NBUS challenge where you get to use Never Before Used Schtuff! Thank you for the fun challenge Darnell!

I started by stamping and die cutting these lovely tulips in blushing bride and calypso coral. I wrapped some crisp cantaloupe twine around the stems to create a bundle.  I just received this stamp set from Papertrey Ink and could hardly wait to break it in!

Www.seejanestamp.com fms 1 (640x522)

Then I added a couple of pieces of paper from my stash to the card front in accordance with the sketch. I stamped a spring sentiment (from a stamp set that I have never used!), adhered everything and was done.
