Runway Inspired Challenge #47

Hello friends!

It’s time for the next Runway Inspired Challenge. We have a beautiful and bright inspiration:


I really liked the cluster of flowers on the shoulders and how they seem to spill out of the dress.

I tried to recreate that look with some flowers die cut out of crepe paper.

RIC 47

It may not be very clear from the photo, but there are two white strips each lined with gold embossing along the edges. It would have looked more prominent had I raised them on foam tape, however I wanted the emphasis to be on the flowers, so I just glued down the strips. To make them I first cut out the strips, then aligned a ruler along the edge leaving out a very tiny strip, which I lined with a Versamark pen, then embossed with Gold. I repeated twice on each edge for a fuller and thicker look.

The flowers were die cut and punched from Crepe paper as I just mentioned. I had these papers from long time ago (school days so more than ten years old). I bought them when I lived in Saudi Arabia, but I think the pink one is exactly the same as this one.

The center of the flowers were die cut out of Gold foil paper. For the small ones I punched twice using this paper punch, and the swirl is just another tiny punch from Michaels similar to this one. The sentiment is stamped in SU! Chocolate chip ink and is from the Hero Arts All Occasion Messages set.

Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp, and the winner will get a $15 gift certificate to their online store!

I hope you will join us for this Challenge. Make sure to stop by the Runway Inspired Challenge and check out the gorgeous project from the rest of the design team.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. When I looked at this card, I thought “yummy” as in strawberry vanilla ice cream. Such a beautiful and sweet card!

  2. I *love* how you picked out the detail at the top of the dress here! I would have totally gone for the gold stripes at the bottom but this is what I love about you and your work – you just do things differently! Your thin embossed lines are genius and I must try that method!! Stunning card!
