Runway Inspired Challenge #84 - Custo Barcelona

Hey everyone! Happy Tuesday!

It's time for another Runway Inspired Challenge! I so love creating for these!!

Here's the *awesome* inspiration image for this challenge:





Now that certainly makes a statement! Love the mod pattern on the shoulders and boots!

Here's what I came up with:



I love how this turned out!!



I started with a panel of Shimmer Cream cardstock and blended Distress Inks in Tattered Rose and Tea Dye over it, then misted it with Perfect Pearls Mist and brushed over some Perfect Pearls in Confetti White too. I then impressed it with the Sunrise Impression Plate and adhered it to my card base.


Next I set about recreating that awesome panel! I punched out large and small squares of Royal Velvet cardstock, Summer Sunrise cardstock and Paint The Town Pink cardstock, punching out the smaller squares from the centres of the larger ones. I laid them out in the correct layout and adhered them to a separate piece of cardstock using Multi Matte Medium. I use a Copic Marker to add the contrasting lines between some of the pieces then adhered the panel to my card.



A sentiment from Altenew's Label Love set, stamped with Versamark ink, completed the look!


So anyway, now I'm all done squealing and monkey clapping with excitement and all the rest of it, you definitely want to check out what the rest of the DT have come up with!!

Pinkfresh Studio May Kit Blog Hop!

Hey everyone! Welcome back!

Today I have a special post to share with you! The Pinkfresh Studio DT are putting on a special Blog Hop for the release of the latest Fresh Inspiration Kit!!



You should have arrived here from  Margareta's blog. If not then please start at the Pinkfresh Studio blog!

Pinkfresh kits are always chock-full of awesome products, and the May kit is no exception!! From gorgeous chipboard words to a fantastically versatile stamp set and die combo there's plenty here to keep you inspired and crafting for ages!!

I'm sharing just one card I've created with items from the May kit - but I can promise you there'll be more!



Love how this turned out!!



I used the frame die to die cut a frame from cardstock, then heat embossed it with platinum embossing powder and rubbed on a little gold ink too to give it a bit of a patina! I used my frame to frame one of the wood veneer pieces from the kit (writing over the text with a black marker) then backed that onto one of the awesome burlap tags! A couple of enamel shapes, a teeny sequin and some patterned paper from the Up In The Clouds collection completed the look!



I love how all these items came together perfectly - Pinkfresh Studio certainly know how to give you combinations of products that are unexpected yet fabulous!!

There's tons of inspiration on all the stops of this Hop, so you really must check out all the fabulous creations of the DT!

Newton's Nook Designs May 2015 Release - Introducing Vegetable Medley!

Hey everyone!

I'm back today to welcome to Day 2 of the Newton's Nook April Release!


We have THREE *awesome* sets being released this month - and you're totally invited to come party with us!

This month we have some really fun cute images that you're sure to love! Today's set is a totally pun-tastic vegetable-themed set! Vegetable Medley is full of awesome images and some fun sentiments too!

Here's what I came up with:



Fun, right?!




I started with a piece of vellum and stamped several of the images using Versamark ink before heat embossing with WOW! Opaque Bright White embossing powder. I adhered my panel over a piece of patterned paper for some subtle contrast then adhered to my base.



I added my sentiment using embellishments from a Freckled Fawn kit, spelling out my sentiment and backing the wood veneer arrow with some Pinkfresh Studio glitter tap to add a pop of colour. 'You're so Rad-ish'. Rad-ish. Radish. Geddit?

I'm here all week.
