Arrow IC337 ~ RedEnvelope {05-19-12}

Inspiration Challenge 337 ~ RedEnvelope

This week's SCS Inspiration Challenge site RedEnvelope was suggested by Korin (sweetnsassystamps). The name RedEnvelope comes from a firmly held belief in Asian cultures that the color red is an auspicious symbol of happiness. Gifts are often presented in a simple red envelope - a timeless tradition that carries with it well wishes of prosperity, good fortune, appreciation and love.

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.

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

Use the keyword: IC337 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

sweetnsassystamps sample ~ Bracelet Inspired

My sample ~ Alphabet Birthday

IC337 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.

The tulip and iris bouquet I found at Red Envelope inspired my design.

Heart IC337 B & W Live, Love, Laugh

Stef- great gallery challenge- thanks so much!
I was taken by the black and white wall gallery frames and came up with Black and White Live, Love Laugh. I paired these terrific papers with PPR's Floral Gallery stamp, and added a "rosette" and yellow gingham ribbon.

Heart IC337 You Make My Heart Spin

Just had to do another card- this time, based off a year of wishes candles- loved those bright colors- so I used The Cat's Pajamas' What a Blast stamp set for my bear and pinwheel (reminds me of the old Yogi Bear cartoon). Here's You Make My Heart Spin
