RIC 91

This will be the quickest  blog post ever! I am entering this in the Runway Inspired Challenge 91, which expires very soon! Yikes! It's been a busy week, but I'm determined to enter this challenge because I love it!

Here is the dress for this challenge:

And here is the card inspired by it:

I took my cues from the color palette, the solid flat colors (there was no shading or highlighting) and the bold black lines. I used the Painted Poppy set from Altenew and did lots of masking to make some flowers look in the forefront and some in the rear. The sentiment is also an Altenew set called Label Love.

Oh, I also want to quickly mention that I got the new Altenew inks and used several of them to make this card. They are amazing. They are nice and juicy and you get a crisp, clean image right from the start!

Thanks for visiting!

Whimsical Wishes

Now that I've cut back on design team commitments, I am having more time to create projects purely for the sake of creativity. This card is one of them.

To create this whimsical card, I first tinted embossing powder with some dye ink before spreading it across my stencil. Then, I layered a doily, some vellum, gold thread and a few pieces of paper I had previously die cut, but decided not to use. The sentiment is Superscript from Altenew. I finished it off with some enamel dots from Eyelet Outlet and voila - the card was done.

I think this will be an excellent birthday card for a young girl. Thanks for visiting!

Paper Sweeties September 2015 Inspiration Challenge #35

It's September, which means the kids are in school, fall is approaching and Paper Sweeties has a brand spankin' new challenge! The inspiration photo below sums up September perfectly.

Here is my interpretation of the inspiration photo:

I used a label die from the Beautiful Little Wishes Sweet Cuts, a sentiment from The Sweeties Wagon set and some sequins. The apple brads are from Eyelet Outlet.

More inspiration awaits. Please visit the rest of the design team's blogs for additional ideas. Then, create your own project and post it to the challenge for a chance to win a prize!!
