Runway Inspired Challenge #79

Afternoon folks,

New Runway Inspired Challenge is here! For this challenge we are honouring fashion at the recent Academy Awards. Miss Taheerah came up with this brilliant idea! So each DT choose their favourite fashion from the Academy awards red carpet as inspiration to make their card. So here is mine.

Initially I wanted to go for Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter. Something about Cumberbatch is mesmerizing to me ;)  But the fashion was too plain for me to work with. So I choose Jennifer Lopez because copper and bronze are the current trend. I love love the sparkle and shine on her lace gown. She is just beautiful.
Copper and bronze colours are my inspiration. Here is my take on Jennifer's fashion.

I heart you1

I have used Penny Black's A Day in Paris stamp set on my blog. I love the French chic girl images in this set. I thought they were perfect for this challenge. so I stamped the image of the girl reading book and the little dog and coloured them with copics. I also stamped the sentiment from I Heart You stamp set also from Penny Black vertically balancing the images. To add some shine and texture, I have used Tsukineko's Copper Irresistable to the flowers on the dress and the brie. Finally accented with more copper elements like the Bronze flat sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and the gemstones from Hero Arts.  I matted this panel with shiny  copper cardstock and then on to the card front.

I heart you clsoeup1

Sparkle and Shine Challenge!

Hello folks,

Today I have a card share for the very first Sparkle and Shine Challenge. I am playing along as Pretty Pink Posh design team. Pretty Pink Posh is the sponsor for this challenge. Pretty Pink Posh is perfect considering what the challenge is called :)

Here is the first challenge

And this is my take on the challenge.

Happy St Partick's Day

I did not have a clover stamp set or die. So I decided to improvise and use heart punch to make my clovers. On my card I stamped the large flourishes from Papertrey Ink with green ink. Then spattered some green colour shine all over the panel and left it to dry. Then I sponged some Crushed Olive distress ink on a scrap piece of cardstock then punched out some hearts. Then sponged some Mowed Lawn distress ink on the heart and left them to dry. 

I then trimmed the dried stamped panel, added a strip of green glitter on one side. Then I glued the punched hearts in threes to form clovers and added Sparkly Clear 6mm sequins from Pretty Pink Posh at the centre. I also glued 4mm Mossy green sequins randomly all over the panel. The panel is mounted on the card front. I felt the card needed some dew drops. An easy way to add dew drops is glossy accent. That is what I have done. Sentiment is from Hero Arts.

I die cut the oval streamers in green, blue and hot pink cardstock and lined it up on the card panel with an overhang. I the used Silver Confetti from Pretty Pink Posh at the intersections of the oval stream to add glitz and glamour ;) I love the bright colours and the silver confetti.

For the sentiment I die cut In A Word: Happy Cutaway in black and stamped the smaller sentiment from The Big, the Bold and Happy stamp set.

Winnie & Walter's A Week to Die For - Day #2

Welcome back!

Today is Day #2 of Winnie & Walter's A Week to Die For.

Today we are showcasing Essentials: Katharine Cutaways, In a Word: Cheers Cutaway, In a Word: Happy Cutaway and In a Word: Love Cutaway.

I have used In a Word: Cheers die to make my card below.

Cheers card2

I used the gold glitter paper to die cut my word die, the a few more using white cardstock. I stacked and glued them together with the gold gliltter die cut on the top. I chose black cardstock as my base to get a fantastic contrast. Then I die cut the circle die cuts out of The Big Bang Confetti Cutaway and glitter gold paper in three sizes. I then randomly glued them on the card front. I just love the glitter gold on the black card base.
