Theme Challenge

Retro Rubber Challenge 93...

A new challenge at Retro Rubber begins today!  We have a fun tic tac toe challenge!

RRCB 93

I opted for the die cut/stripes/bird combo.  I started with a piece of perfect plum that I ran thru my stripes embossing folder.  Then I die cut a sweet little bird out of raspberry ripple.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 93 1 (583x640)

I stamped the sentiment (from PTI Summer Hills 2013) and then die cut with my stitched wonky dies.  I adhered the plum to the card base of crumbcake and then popped up the sentiment before adding some dots/pearls/rhinestones.

Patterns For House Of Cards...

The first day of August means it’s a new challenge at House of Cards.  The challenge for this month is to use pattern paper, the colors in the challenge image, or both.

August Patterned Paper and or colors

I opted to use pattern papers for this challenge.  I found some lovely coordinating papers and cut strips that I adhered to a base of lost lagoon.

I debated about how to add a sentiment and finally landed on using a strip of cardstock and attaching it to the bottom of the card.  I feel like it gives a bit of weight to all of the patterns.

A few rhinestones for some sparkle and I was done.

Obsessing Over AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  It’s time to confess what I am currently obsessed with.  Easy peasy…pattern paper.  I love to hoard it and think about using it.  LOL.

#181 7.27.18

I found some paper that looks like I cut strips and added together when in reality it was a piece of pattern paper already sorted into strips.

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 181 1 (640x537)

I die cut a piece and then backed with lost lagoon.  I wrapped some cantaloupe twine around the cantaloupe base and then popped the pattern paper up on it.

A sweet sentiment that nods to the travel theme in the paper finishes off the card.

Retro Rubber Challenge #90...

Welcome to a new challenge at Retro Rubber!  It’s a photo inspiration so you can use either the colors or the items in the photo to create your card.

RRCB 90

I opted for the colors, creating a bit of a patriotic theme with some stars and stripes but using a sentiment that is distinctly not patriotic.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 90 1 (578x640)

I added a few papers from my stash to a base of rustic cream cardstock and then die cut with a double stitched die.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 90 2 (627x640)

I added the sentiment from the Papertrey Ink choose joy stamp set from 2015 and a sweet arrow from the Simon Says Stamp choose happy stamp set from 2016.  I popped the whole thing up on a base of kraft and was done.

I found a scrap of this fun pattern paper and decided to let it do all the talking.  So I die cut it using a stitched rectangle and popped it up on a base of crumbcake.

I love a tic tac toe challenge and Jan Clothier put together a fun one.  I opted for a diagonal line of romantic occasions, pattern paper and gems.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 89 1 (588x640)

Keeping my card clean and simple, I die cut a piece of pattern paper and added a wedding sentiment from a 2015 Simon Says Stamp set.  A few enamel hearts later, and I popped the paper up on a card base of linen cream.

Five For Five For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It!  Amanda has given us a challenge to use five things on a card – and these were a bit tough to put together!

#177 6.1.18

I started with a single tree that I die cut into a square.  Two of the five down!  I ran the card front thru a woodgrain embossing folder and then added a masculine sentiment.  Four down, one to go!

Www.seejanestamp.com aysi 177 1 (596x640)

Finally, I added the card front to a navy card base and the challenge was complete.  A clean and simple card for Father’s Day!

Retro Rubber Challenge #86...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!!  It’s a challenge all about flowers!  It is May after all!

RRCB 86
My mom requested a card for a friend of hers who was turning 90.  She wanted purple and the numbers in cork, I wanted flowers.  I started by die cutting the numbers in cork and die cutting a mini scallop stitched rectangle.

Www.seejanestamp.com rrcb 86 1 (557x640)

I stamped the bleeding heart in purple and then added the sentiment and cork numbers.  The stamps are from Papertrey Ink’s Garden Gate (2016) and Clearly Besotted Message Me (2016).
