Runway Inspired Challenge #44

Hello friends!

I am here with a new Runway Inspired Challenge, and one awesome guest designer; Betsy Veldman!!

Here is this week’s inspiration:

Well, my first thought was to use vellum over some stamped/embossed images.

After much thinking I took a different approach and came up with this:

RIC 44

I still used vellum, and the delicate die cut represents the intricate vines on the dress. There is no particular reason why I didn’t use blue, I just wanted to use pink, and mind you, this is the very first time I used colors other than those in the inspiration photo!

After making this one I decided to make another one taking the hard way. In this card I attached the negatives of the die cut using small strips of foam tape. Some of the strips were so thin that the width was smaller than the height (1/16″)!

  1. These cards are gorgeous! Thanks so much for sharing. I look forward to your take on Runway Inspired challenge each time. I just love the way you come up with fabulous ideas. Love to be able to do that. I probably need to try a few challenges to get an idea of how it works and that may help.

    • Sure. I used the Floral Circle die from Memory Box and the Simon Says Stamp All Occasion Banner die and stamp set. I just added the links in the Supply list.

  2. I *love* how you always do something so different and unexpected Tasnim! These cards are fabulous!! So delicate and pretty. Can’t believe you used foam tape for the second one, that must have taken an age! Break out the Pinflair girl! *wink*

  3. You never fail to impress me…these cards are beautiful!! Must have taken alot of time and patience to work with such delicate dies. Both cards are stunning and I think they wouldn’t have looked as good if you had decided to use a strong blue. The light pink goes with the delicate design. Brilliant!!

  4. What joyful cards! Love the white text on vellum. Such a great way to incorporate your round die IN the card … I’m quite sure most everyone is using the positive die on that one! Your blush cardstock is wonderful with the white, quite a different look than the blue would give.
