Theme Challenge

Retro Rubber Challenge 114...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  We are partnering with the Double Trouble Challenge.  Yay!

RRCB 114

Our theme is Christmas in July so all you have to do for our challenge is to make a Christmas card using at least one stamp older than a year.

The Double Trouble challenge requirements are:

  • Thing 1 – Double Trouble:  Make a square card, scrapbook page, gift box or use squares on your project.
  • Thing 2 – Double Dare:  Use a rubber or acrylic stamp older than one year.
  • Thing 3 – Twisted Sister:  If you create a beach scene with Santa you can earn an extra chance to be in Double Trouble’s random draw.

I stamped a branch and pinecones from my Papertrey Ink peaceful pinecones stamp set that I have had since 2012.

Then I diecut a square around my image and backed it with a garden green scalloped square.  I popped the image up on the card base and added the sentiment around the square.  A few pearls finished it off!

Blimey Limey For AYSI...

Welcome to a new As You See It Challenge.  This one is fill in the blank!

#203 6.21.19

My favorite color to wear is lime green!  So I used my retro circles and some lemon lime twist ink to stencil the background.

Then I added the sentiment that I backed with a bit of black.  I finished off with a few black rhinestones.

Retro Rubber Challenge 113...

Welcome to our new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s anything goes!

RRCB 113
I started by stamping this image from PaperTrey Ink’s Fashion Sense stamp set from 2015.  I stamped the background in black and then added the dress in flirty flamingo.  I added the sentiment across the image itself which is a bit unusual for me.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 113 1 (598x640)

I added a strip of flirty flamingo beneath the white card front and some bling as well!

Retro Rubber Challenge 111...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge

RRCB 111

Since it is a tic tac toe challenge I naturally went for the one layer card, birds and sponging.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 111 1 (543x640)

I started by using a leaf stencil and sponged peach parfait and peekaboo peach inks for the color.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 111 2 (640x535)

This beautiful bird stamp and a whimsical sentiment finished off the card.  Both the bird and sentiment came from the Close To My Heart Live Inspired stamp set that I have had for about seven years.

Two For AYSI...

It’s our 200th challenge at As You See It!  This challenge is to use two [things] on a card.  Which is harder than you think!

#200 5.10.19

I used two images, two colors, two twines and twisted the twine twice.  Say that three times fast!  Anyway…I think I met the challenge!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 200 1 (584x640)

I stamped the two balloon animals in dapper denim and lemon time twist.  I added the sentiment and the twine and was done!

Retro Rubber Challenge 110...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber.  It’s all about flowers!

RRCB 110

I started with this beautiful mums stamp from Rubbernecker Stamps which I have had since 2016.  I stamped the first layer in chocolate chip ink and then added yellow, orange and red to the flower portion of the stamp.  I wasn’t sure what I would get – but it turned out really well.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 110 1 (582x640)

Then I added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp’s Birthday Flowers from 2016.  Finally I added a couple of strips of crushed curry and die cut with a stitched die.

Retro Rubber Challenge 109...

It’s Anything Goes at Retro Rubber

RRCB 109

I started with a funky die cut rectangle out of some musical paper.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 109 1 (584x640)

Then I flagged a couple of scraps of paper and popped them up after adding my sentiment.  I thought it appropriate given my paper!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 109 2 (640x507)

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted Message Me from 2016.  A little bling finishes the card!

Retro Rubber Challenge 107...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber and it’s one of my favorites!  Tic Tac Toe!  I am loving those more and more!

RRCB 107

I opted for the top row of dies/sparkle/stars.  I die cut several stitched stars out of blueberry bushel, pineapple punch and granny apple green.  A weird combo of food themed paper names!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 107 1 (575x640)

I added the sentiment from my PTI belated birthday sentiments from 2015.  I ran everything through the linen impression plate and then added the bling.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 107 2 (640x337)

I used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch.

Retro Rubber Challenge 106...

A new challenge is afoot at Retro Rubber!  It is time to earn your stripes and use them on a card.

RRCB 106

This card did not turn out anything like when I started.  I was going to stamp the stripes and then ended up with pattern paper instead.  You just have to go with the flow!  I started by die cutting two stitched ovals and stamping the sentiment using my W+9 Strictly Sentiments stamp set from 2013. 

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 106 1 (541x640)

Then I flagged the ends of the striped paper (it pays to save scraps!), added some gold thread and then adhered everything together.  Finally, I popped up the sentiment and added some gold stars.

Poppies For AYSI...

It’s time for a new As You See It challenge.  This is a fill in the blank challenge. 

#194 2.15.19

When I think simple, I think clean and simple.  I love a one layer card so I started with this lovely poppy image that I used my chalks on and then decided to add one small layer with my sentiment.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 194 1 (548x640)
