Theme Challenge

Love For AYSI...

Welcome to a new challenge at As You See It!  We have a love theme for this go around so I went pretty clean and simple (naturally!).

#217 1.17.20

I started with a die cut heart out of white paper before adding an ombre of sweet sugarplum ink to it.

I added the sentiment and then popped it up on a base of sweet sugarplum with a bit of white twine tied around it.

Retro Rubber Challenge 126...

It’s a new challenge for a new year at Retro Rubber!  The challenge is to make a winter themed card.  I thought this would be easy until I couldn’t come up with anything!  Luckily, I had a meeting this past weekend where a friend showed off her collection of wreaths.  One of them was a snowflake wreath so I used that for my inspiration.

RRCB 126

I started by drawing a circle and then stamping a variety of snowflake stamps around it.  I used colors that I used on this card that I made a few weeks ago.  These stamps were from my Simon Says Stamp Lots of Snowflakes stamps from 2014.

I added the sentiment from my Penny Black Yuletide Wishes stamp set from 2016 and decided to put the stamp a bit to the right.  I moved it around the circle, in and out of the circle and ultimately liked it where it ended up.

I added a few rhinestones and some twine before adhering to a card base of soft sky.

I started with a pear pizzazz brushstroke before adding a couple of scrub brush trees.

Fill In The AYSI Blank...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It and it is a fill in the blank.  (that I got to create!)  My go to die or punch that I use most often is the linen impression plate.  But I think you all could have guessed that!  I love it because it adds a smidge of texture and makes the card feel a little more upscale.

#209 9.13.19

I did a one layer card so I could show off the linen plate.  I added snowflakes and circles in soft colors and then ran the card thru the linen plate.  Even though it is hard to see!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 209 1 (546x640)

I stamped the sentiment, die cut it, and popped it up on the card.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 209 2 (640x459)

It's always a bit difficult to see the texture from the linen plate so here is a picture of what it looks like.

Retro Rubber Challenge 116...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber and it is a delightful tic tac toe.

RRCB 116

I bounced around for a while before finally deciding which row I was going to tackle.  I ended up with the pattern paper/romance/enamel dots or gems.  I started with a card base of balmy blue and added this sweet piece of butterfly pattern paper.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 116 1 (564x640)

Then I die cut and embossed the arch using my inspiration impression plate right after I added the sentiment.  My apologies if the impression plate is hard to see – it is various inspirational words.  It did not photo well at all!  My sentiment comes from my PTI ways to say I love you from 2017.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 116 2 (640x442)

I popped up the arch and then added my rhinestones and dots.
