As You See It Challenge 

This weeks challenge is a bit different, but it's sure to challenge your creativity!

This weeks challenge is to use your current favorite stamp set!  
It was so hard to decide which one was my current favorite.  

I finally decided on Six Sided Sampler.  This was my immediate favorite when the catalog came out this summer.  

I used Six Sided Sampler to stamp the hexagon images, but added one of our new polymer stamp sets (Sorry, I just realized that it's sold out) to add the snowflakes and joy to my design.  You could use any small snowflake set and small word set though.  

Here is a close up so you can see how I masked off the upper hexagon so that the snow flake would stay inside the hexagon outline stamp.  

Here is another sample that I made using only the Six Sided Sampler set.  I was going for the ombre look on this card since it's all the rage right now.  

Hope you enjoyed my cards this week!

As You See It Challenge #12

There is nothing like a good challenge right?  This week's sketch is a keeper that's easy to change to whatever your occasion is.  

 What an easy layout, right?  
I decided to make a quick and cute easy Christmas card.  I also ran washi tape through the big shot to make the rick-rack piece.  I attached it to whisper white card stock first though.  

Please make sure that you play along this week!  We will be giving away blog candy!  The winner of this weeks challenge will receive (you have to live in North America) a pop-n-place kit.  It's a great kit! Make sure you link up to with your project.  Good luck!

As You See It Challenge 

This week's challenge is a COLOR Challenge!  How fun is that?!?!?  
Use these colors to design your own card and link it up to the AYSI blog.

When I saw these colors I instantly thought of a baby card.  I recently ordered a couple of new stamp sets and put them to good use on this card.

Using the Stamp-a-majig I was able to balance the animals on top of each other.  Carefully perched as if they were a brand new family.

Please take a few minutes to play along with the challenge and link up your project!

As You See It Challenge

Have I mentioned how great it is to be part of the As You See It Design team?  The team is made up of some of my closest stamping friends both here in the U.S & Canada.  Did you know we are an international team?  :)  

Here is this weeks sketch.  

For this Challenge I decided to make a Christmas card.  It that time of year that we start thinking of making our Christmas cards.  
*I am experiencing some technical difficulties so the size of my card will be fixed shortly (I hope).

Please make sure that you play along with the challenge this week at

As You See It Challenge

Remember way back know when you would play the telephone game in school or youth group?  It would start out as Sally got a new dog & end up as George went to a concert.  
So my understanding is that this week's challenge is called a telephone design.  I'm not so sure why that is but it is.  I'm thinking because we give you the items to use and you do the design.  

So here it is!  

The challenge is to use all the items listed above in your card.  

I 'may' of cheated a bit and made my card a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 sized card.  The beauty on this size card is you can still mail it in a normal card envelope.  

I used my Sizzix Big Shot to cut out the flowers and stamped the background using my favorite set Gorgeous Grunge.  Love that stamp set!  Next I stamped Thanks and assembled the card.  Quick, easy, and cute, my type of card.
