RIC #65

Hi there!

Today, I am bringing you the latest Runway Inspired Challenge!  Have you seen the redesign?  Ohhh, it's fabulous, go check it out if you haven't!  Okay, back to the challenge...There is a lot of fabulous inspiration to be found in this photo, so much so, that I created two cards!

And, guess who our fabulous sponsor is?  Altenew!  Woot, woot!  Wanna win a stamp set?  Play along and you just might.  

I used the super fun set, Figure Effects, to create this super simple card.  I loved what Laura Bassen did with the window, and the die cut (here) and wanted to try something similar on my card. 

To start, I took a white panel and stamped the images in black.  I then took a square die, and partially die cut it, omitting the bottom portion.  I then trimmed around the stamped images with my scissors, and popped it up onto a card base that I had applied Stormy Sky Distress Ink.

Before I adhered the panel with foam tape, I white heat embossed my sentiment onto the base of the card.  To finish it off, I added a few yellow enamel dots.

Now, for this one, I decided I needed to capture the lovely ethereal nature of her top, so I white heat embossed the gorgeous flowers from the new set, Persian Motifs.  I fussy cut them out and adhered them to a card base that I covered with patterned paper.   

I then took a sentiment from the Label Love set, and heat embossed it in Pewter, trimmed it down, and adhered it with foam.  Of course, I had to add a bit of bling, and sprinkled rhinestones about the front of the card.

Well, that's a wrap!  Thanks for popping by today.  I do hope you'll play along!  


  1. Your cards are so beautiful, Lindsay! Love both of them!

  2. Both of these cards are fabulous. I love how versatile your style is :) So inspiring!

  3. These are really cool. The first one, I really like the cutout people and the second is spot on with the outfit on the model. Great job!

  4. I really love that last card. How do you prevent the vellum from warping during heating?
