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.

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.

Retro Rubber Challenge 104...

It’s a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  Jan Clothier created a fun tic tac toe challenge for us!

RRCB 104

I went with birthday, washi and butterflies!  I punched three mini butterflies using some plaid paper, perfect plum and granny apple green. 

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 104 1 (555x640)

I used several pieces of washi tape before adding the butterflies.  My sentiment, from PTI Ways to Say Birthday from 2017, is stamped on a washi tape die cut that I popped up for some visual interest.  I finished off with a bit of bling.
