Theme Challenge

Retro Rubber Challenge 230...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a theme challenge to make a card with a nautical theme.

RRCB 230

I started out by embossing a piece of night of navy with my twisted rope embossing folder.  I die cut it down with a stitched die and then added a piece of twine before adhering to the kraft card base.

I stamped and die cut the anchor image and also the sentiment.  These are from my Papertrey Ink Seas of Life stamp set from 2021.  Clean and simple.

Retro Rubber Challenge 226...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a theme challenge to make a card with spring flowers.

RRCB 226

I dug out my Papertrey Ink Flower Favorites from 2015 and inked up the iris image.  I used some distress inks so that I could spritz them with water to make a watercolor image.  I didn’t set out to have the splatter background – but one iris image with too much pressure and ink went flying.

I added the sentiment and then used my deckled edges to cut the card front and the gorgeous grape background.  I added some linen thread and then adhered to my pear pizzazz base.

Easter Wishes For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a theme challenge to celebrate Easter.

#318 3.1.24

I don’t have a lot of Easter stamps but…I bought this cute bunny wreath a while back and voila…Easter!  This is a stamp and stencil set so first up was stenciling the bunnies, the flowers and the carrots.

The stamp portion is all of the greenery and sentiment.  I die cut the wreath and popped it up on some rustic white with the sentiment in the middle.  I added some sparkle and was done!

Retro Rubber Challenge 225...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a tic tac toe and I opted for pattern paper, embossing, and gems or sequins.

RRCB 225

I started by stamping the flower image (with it’s cute little happy face!) and sentiment then die cutting with my stitched fishtail flags dies.  I also die cut the pattern paper with the fishtail flags.  The flower image came from my Simon Says Stamps floral bookmarking stamp set from 2014.  The sentiment is not over a year old and is from Simon Says Stamps Beautiful Friend.

RRCB 222

I started out by stamping and die cutting the bench, pillows, blanket, book and cup.  I used my Papertrey Ink Winter Bench stamp set from 2022.  I opted for some bright colors cause we all need a little bright in the winter!

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 222 1

I stamped the sentiment (Papertrey Ink Winter Hills (2012) and then adhered all the bits and pieces to the card front.  I couldn’t resist adding the sweet heart button as a last minute touch.

Retro Rubber Challenge 220...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a tic tac toe and I opted for frame, snowman and trees.

RRCB 220

I started by die cutting a window frame on the front of the card.  Then I opted to do something a bit different for me by creating the scene on the inside of the card.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 220 1

I stamped the fence and swag before adding and popping up the die cut tree and snowman.  These images are from my Papertrey Ink Fence Line Winter stamp set from 2018.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 220 2

I added the sentiment (PTI Cozy Christmas 2016) and was done.  I like that the surprise is on the inside of the card!

Christmas For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a theme challenge to make a Christmas card.

#312 11.17.23

I started by die cutting the grid design in white.  I cut a piece of cherry cobbler to go behind the white.  But before I adhered them together, I ran the cherry cobbler through my sheet music impression plate.  It’s hard to see but you can just see the faint outlines of notes and staff. 

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 312 1

I then stamped the small stable and star.  I added the sentiment and some rhinestones to finish off the card.  Once it was done, I spent considerable time rethinking my color combinations but in the end, I decided to keep them.  To be honest, if I was to redo the card, I would have probably swapped out the stable color to cherry cobbler.  Hmmm…I guess I may not be as satisfied as I thought?  LOL!  Don’t you hate it when you start to second guess yourself?

Retro Rubber Challenge 217...

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s anything goes!

RRCB 217

I am definitely feeling the fall vibes.  I broke out a stamp set that I have owned since it came out in 2021 but never used – Stampin’ Up Gorgeous Leaves.  The leaves really are gorgeous so I stamped them on a crumbcake background that I stamped off once before applying to the card front.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 217 1

I added the sentiment from Papertrey Ink Keep It Simple Blessed (2017) at an angle and then die cut, added some dots and twine and adhered to the card base.  Easy fall fun!

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s a theme challenge to use make a beach card.

#306 8.25.23

I started by stamping some palm trees and then die cutting them in a stitched triangle shape.    I stamped a little bit of sand and used some chalks to create a little sun and blue sky.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 306 1

I stamped the jeep and then fussy cut.  I was feeling the vibe of someone who drives their jeep to the beach so they can surf.  I grew up landlocked so I have no idea what that actually feels like.  Lol.   I adhered everything to the card base and added the sentiment and was done!

It’s a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a theme challenge to make a card with rainbows or use rainbow colors!

RRCB 213

I started by stamping this sweet image from My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Freckles.  I have had this stamp for over 5 years – probably longer.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 213 1

I used my alcohol markers to color her in using the colors of the rainbow.  I added a little gray under her feet to ground her and a little chalky blue around her (which did not photo well).  A sentiment popped up and I was done.
