Super short post today, folks!  It's nearly midnight and I just realized I never wrote anything on my draft of this post!  Whoops :)

Here's the latest Runway Inspired Challenge:

Hey there, strangers!  Today we have a brand spankin' new Runway Inspired Challenge, this time inspired by Monique Lhuillier!

I am in love with this feminine dress...isn't it gorgeous!?  

I think made and re-made this card about 4 times before I was happy with it.  I felt like I couldn't get it to look the way it did in my head- has that ever happened to you?  Well anyway, I continued to play around with everything until I ended up with this:



After all of that work, I love how it turned out! First I stamped a Hero Arts map background stamp with grey ink on my card base, and covered it with vellum.  Then, I stamped a bunch of elements from Altenew's Vintage Flowers, and die cut them with the coordinating dies.  I tried my best to get the colors to match the inspiration dress.

Once it was all arranged the way I liked it, I adhered it to the card with foam tape.  Lastly, I added the sentiment, which is from Altenew's Sketchy Cities America.

ric#89 and Altenew updates

Good morning!  Today there is a brand spamkin' new Runway Inspired Challenge for you....




Our sponsor this week, FishScraps, has donated digital products to the DT to use on our projects!


This was a very quick and easy card to put together.  I used two images from Fresh Lemon Digital Stamps to create a background, and printed it onto textured cardstock.  Next, I stamped a sentiment from Altenew's Baby Zoo set onto peach cardstock and mounted it to the card with foam tape.  The only other thing it needed was a strip of grey cardstock!




My second card is a lot more technique-y (yes! I made two cards!).  Using Photoshop, I created a striped background from the Watercolor Digital Paper and printed it out.  Then, I went to work on the flower.   I used an image from Succulent Clipart Silhouettes to make a cut file for my Silhouette Cameo.  Once the pieces were cut from white cardstock, I mounted them onto a super thick piece of plastic and cut it out by hand.  It looks so cool in real life!  I then stamped the sentiment (from Fresh Freesia) with grey ink, and mounted everything to a peach card base.

Lastly, if you didn't know, Tasnim and I just released 9 new stamp sets for Altenew!  I've been posting my projects over on the Altenew Blog, but figured I would re-post them here in case you haven't seen them yet :)   I have been out of town and very busy (more grad school work and other projects! lol), so I sadly haven't posted all my cards using all of the sets yet.  Hopefully I'll get the rest up within a week or so!
