This week’s Inspiration Challenge site was suggested by Dara. She found all sorts of textures, shapes & colors to inspire on the Crate & Barrel website, particularly the candle holders. This is a store with no shortage of inspiration.
For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I’ve uploaded three of my favorites … so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. The rest of you, remember to let us know which product from Crate & Barrel that inspired you.
Use the keyword: IC234 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.
How to Play ~ View the attached images. You may be inspired to recreate the pieces ~ but that isn't necessary ... get your inspiration from the colors, layout, style or 'theme'. Just enjoy wherever your inspired creative journey takes you. Remember, if you are inspired by the creation of another artist, please do not use print-outs of the art in your creation or directly copy their work. Make the inspiration piece your own. Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong' and there is no time limit for uploading your card for the challenge. There are no rules, so let your creative juices run wild ~ be *inspired* and go get stamping!
Don't forget about No Upload Sunday - Let's give the gallery moderators a day off and not upload on Sunday (unless, of course, you are a Fan Club member - yet another reason to spend a little money on your favorite site). Also, remember to link to your SCS gallery on this thread. Thank you for joining me on this inspiration journey.
Great source for inspiration, Stef...and Dara!! I love receiving their catalogs and going thru them just looking at all the wonderful colors and designs. It also is a fun store to visit. I tried my hand at watercoloring a card.....something new for me. Think this one would require extra postage...a tad heavy with that watercolor paper!
Long time, no play! What an interesting site to try out tonight. I really ought to do this tonight since I have met my obligations with all my quilting projects and kids are out of school for the summer. Off to look at the site and enjoy making a card FINALLY!

I really love looking at the Inspiration Challenge gallery every weekend. I always try to get inspired, but weekend duties always seem to get in the way of my crafting! I tricked those duties this time though and tried the challenge on a Friday night!! Hey it worked! Here is my card that I was inspired to make after viewing this image from the Crate and Barrel site: http://images.crateandbarrel.com/is/image/Crate/MediciWallArtSC09?$share$
This stamp I stamped four times in a straight manner with the help of my Stamp-a-majig to make the square pattern. I hope I can do more IC's in the future!

Having some fun here. I am alone here, Pierre is out shopping for the house...David is out working and I have quite some time to kill until I start getting ready for my outing tonight. YAY! That means another card in the makings...
Meanwhile, this is one card I am amazed at creating. I can't believe I did this, but seeming there is no one else here with me, I must have. LOL
