Arrow IC313 ~ Christopher Radko {12-03-11}

Inspiration Challenge 312 ~ Christopher Radko

This week’s Inspiration Challenge comes from the magical holiday ornaments of Christopher Radko. He is credited with having brought the fine European glass Christmas ornament tradition back to America.

I removed the link to the Christopher Radko site. Here are two other safe sites where you can find his ornaments. Please stick with only Radko ornaments for your inspiration.

Macy's Christopher Radko Gallery

Best Wishes Christopher Radko Gallery

I have asked Gabby (gabalot) to join me in making an additional inspired card sample this week.

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I’ve uploaded five of my favorites … so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. These are some picture-heavy pages, so it will take some to load.

The rest of you, remember to let us know which item from Christopher Radko that inspired you.

Use the keyword: IC313 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

Gabalot ~ Three Penguins

My sample ~ Butterfly Bounty

IC313 Gallery

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.

Super ornaments! I had to use one of the alternate sites as I was getting the malware notice, too. Here's my Small Things. Thanks so much for looking!

Thanks for the alternative links Stef, I was getting the malware warning.
I did stick to Radko - but you didn't say it had to be Christmassy .

Hi fellow ICers! Just wanted to let you know that I changed the Radko inspiration link in my original post to Nieman Marcus. Sad to hear that the Radko site is infected! Gabby

Wink IC313 Sledding Boy Tag

I really liked Christopher Radko's Santa on a sleigh ornament- here it is- I used a cool vintage style sleigh stamp from Dragonfly Laser instead of Santa with his sleigh. Have a great sunday! Here's Sledding Boy Tag
