Theme Week

It's Theme Week!

This weeks theme is pretty open you card just has to be FRESH!  So make your freshest card and go with it!!! 

I chose to use new FRESH of the press products from Stampin' Up!  Brand new colors, stamp set, and accessories.  When I first saw this SU! hostess set I was like YES, NOW this is my style: a tad funky, different, and clean....totally FRESH! Also, something about pattern mixing speaks to my soul too.  

Hope you chose to play along with week with AYSI!

Welcome back to As You See It!  This week your quest is to use the items below in your project.  You may use other items but you have to use at least these items.

Soooo, I was on the struggle with this project.  Does anyone know where my pack of woodgrain paper went?!  Finally, I remembered about Mays My Paper Pumpkin.  I opened it up and waahhhhh like the holy grail, wood grain paper.   I had to trim it off the card base that it was on but hey, there it was!  I also decided to go a different direction and use some of the layer pieces from the kit too.  

Please take a moment to play along with us at AYSI!

AYSI Shades Of Grey.

AYSI Shades of Grey Style!  

Are you a Shades of Grey fan? Seen the movie, read the books?  I'll freely admit that Shades of Grey is not my thing, basically at all, it's just not.  However, I DO love me some speed stamping and color challenges!!!  

So, here are the #rules.  You have 10 minutes to make your card using only shades of grey and neutrals.  You may get semi-prepped.  Pull out your supplies but not actually cutting before the timer starts!  

What do you think!? Ha, so it takes me 3 minutes to blender color a small section!!  Yes, my card is pretty plain but it was uber fun to do.  9 minutes, 40 seconds was my end time.  I was going to pop up magical with a banner but my ink smudged!!!  I didn't notice till it was too late, so here is the non-popped up version.  

Hope you will play along with us this week!!!

It's Friend Week!

It's AYSI Friend Week!  

Welcome to friend week at AYSI!  Oh YEAH!  It's something borrowed, from your friend week.  :)  What will you borrow?!  Will you return it is the real question!

I chose to borrow the stripe embossing folder for the background.  I stamped the lemon and words first and then ran the white stamped card stock through my big shot.  

Did you notice two new colors?!?!  Oh yeah, Call Me Clover is the green and Pineapple Punch is the yellow.  Can't wait to get matching card stock soon, till then I just used some from my stash.

AYSI Challenge #173

Welcome to another challenge!  This is a great one if you are the person that loves a good resist!  

I used the pine trees embossed with black embossing power on watercolor paper to give it a bit more of a texture.  Then using Brushos powdered pigments/watercolors from Stampin' Up! I sprinkled the blue and green. Next I used a water spritzer and spritzed the card, then dried with a heat gun.  Super simple but yet manly enough for my hubby!  

Thanks for playing along this week with AYSI!

AYSI Color Challenge

It's time for another color challenge!  Your challenge should you accept is to use these colors in your project!  They layout can be whatever your heart desires but it shall be these three colors, plus neutrals.  

I recently ordered this snazzy stamp bundle with the framelets.  Using my new stamp tool I was about to line the 3 step stamping up perfectly and even stamped off once or twice to get all the shades.  It's pretty slick if I do say so myself!

It's AYSI Challenge Time!  

Check out this fun and challenging project for this weeks challenge.  

The only direction is you must use these items in your project, whatever it may be.  

This was a little tricky at first but managed to pull it of.  Guess what I have NO star punches in my collection?!?! Can you believe it? I did however have some star embellishments.  

Also, I used the brand new stamp-a-ratus to line up the stamp.  Super fun to use!  #getyourhandsonone
