There's a great challenge over at Runway Inspired Challenge. There's also a new challenge at TIME OUT which is to CASE the lovely card made by my good blog friend Kylie of Kylie is Addicted to Stamps & More. Below are the two inspiration photos:
I thought the colours and style of this dress were lovely so I set about making my card.
I know what was in my head (normally not much!!! lol) but it didn't translate very well IRL. I started off by die cutting my Die-namics Sun Ray die in blue cardstock and backed it with a piece of grey card which I'd embossed using Craft Concepts Stained Glass e/f. I cut the two chevron strips (Die-namics Chevron Stripes) and then die cut three Memory Box Hibiscus Flowers. The sentiment is Stampin Up Apothecary Art and I stamped it around the sun ray die. Here is the card put together:
As I said, I don't think it translated to completed card at all well. I thought I'd have another go today and I was much more pleased with the outcome. This is the card that fits in with the TIME OUT challenge. Here it is:
I started off by taking a copy of the photo of the dress into CraftArtist and cropping it so I could make it into a background. I then printed it off so I could use it as a base layer of my card. I then stamped Clearly Besotted Fresh Flowers onto a die cut tag (Sue Wilson's Pierced Tags) and coloured in using my Chameleon pens and added some Wink of Stella Clear on top of the flowers. I sponged around the edges of the tag with SU Baja Breeze. I die cut a smaller tag and stamped a greeting from Clearly Besotted Say it in Style set and again sponged the edges. I used the Die-namics Chevron Stripes again across the centre of the card but this time layed the smaller one on top of the larger. I added some flowers from my stash, the leaves are Britannia Dies Leaf Flourish and the photo corners are an EK Success punch.
As I say I was much more pleased with this card. Pop on over to the RIC blog and have a look at the lovely DT cards. There's a great prize for the winner! Don't forget to go over to the TIME OUT challenge blog to see all the great inspiration from the DT.
Have a great weekend.
