Ready for Project Runway

Project Runway's new season starts this month.  I chose this stamp to showcase Stamp N Plus' line of Iris Fold stamps designed by LuAnn.  There is an entire section of stamps devoted to fashion---dresses and accessories.  I just love playing fashion designer---wonder what Heidi & Tim would think of my design???

The stamp is new and not even posted on the store's website but give LuAnn a call and she will get it out to you--- 715-271-1873.  When I first saw these iris fold stamps, I was totally intimidated.  It looked really complicated but the stamps are similar to paint-by-number.  You stamp the image on the BACK of your paper & then cut out the outline of the dress with a craft knife.  Working from the back, you use the lines and numbers on the stamped dress to place your folded strips of paper attaching them with pieces of Scotch tape.

For my dress I used some satiny pink paper and some striped ribbon.  The flowers were cut from a silk ribbon and I added some pink rhinestone centers.  The branches were made with a Martha Stewart punch.

This card was made for Stamp N Plus July Challenge:  Anything Goes  I invite all my readers to enter our challenge for a chance to win some great prizes.  You can get the details here .

Thanks for stopping by and please enter our challenge.

    Hugs Elaine

  4. I love this card, been meaning to learn how to do this folding myself. Great job on how you changed the angles of the folds, it makes it look like the fabric is being draped in different ways!


  5. I thought I had commented on this beauty already, but I guess not. Yup, I agree, it's the fold angles that makes this so striking -- and your creative skills of pulling it all together.

    Oh by the way... I just noticed the page view counter thingy just turned 1000 for me - pretty cool.

  6. Love it. Your iris folding is so impressive.
