Very bright and bold. I can’t imagine wearing these colors myself, but the outfit looks pretty cool on the model. And did you check out the umbrella yet? It is probably the prettiest umbrella I have ever seen! (you may click on the source and zoom in for the beautiful details šŸ™‚ )

I simply had to try to recreate a similar pattern for my card. Here is the result:

RIC 51

I am happy to announce that this is an all-stamped card! Something that is usually a bit of a challenge for me. Proof; this final card you are seeing came after four trials! There is always a small little detail that goes amiss whenever I attempt an all-stamped card.

The vine stamp is from Penny Black, and is called Verdant. I stamped it in Stampin’Up! inks Pink Pirouette, Perfect Plum, and Bashful Blue. The perfect Plum was done with second generation. I also stamped a little bit in Distress ink Milled Lavender.

The sentiment is from Studio Calico/Hero Arts set Darling Sentiments.

I have another card to share with you today. For this one, I tried to depict the texture on the fabric by stamping patterns on solid stamps:

RIC 51-2

I designed it in such a way so that one can use it either portrait or landscape:

RIC 51-3The stamp set is one designed by me. The inks are Memento Luxe Pigment ink, except for the silver, which is from Colorbox.

Do check out the amazing contributions from the rest of the team at Runway Inspired Challenge. I promise you, you will be in for a treat!

Our sponsor this week is Simon says stamp, and the winner will get a $15 gift card to their store. Can’t wait to see what you create!

Thanks for stopping by šŸ™‚

  1. Love your opposite takes on the inspiration pic. The first one is so soft and the next two are so graphic and hello ,”I designed the stamp set” you are so talented! Amazing!

  2. Seems we both were drawn to that gorgeous umbrella!! Love your all-stamped version of it!! And I really love the bold graphic nature of the second one!! And HOLD UP – you’re designing stamps now?! Sign me up to be a customer!! šŸ˜€

  3. Wow Tasnim, both cards are stunning, but am totally loving the whimsical elegance in your first one – must give that generational stamping technique a go – you’ve totally inspired me to try something new!

  4. Wow, love the pretty stamping and soft hues on the first card. The second card has your stamps? – Amazing šŸ™‚

  5. LOVE both of your cards! I actually love the 2nd one A LOT (perhaps it’s because YOU designed the stamps?–coincidence? I think not!)! It’s beautifully balanced and stamped! You are amazing, Tasnim!

  6. Tasnim. We need to talk. Designed stamp sets? Is there no end to your talent?
