Arrow IC340 ~ Artful Whimsy {06-09-12}

Inspiration Challenge 340 ~ Artful Whimsy

This week's SCS Inspiration Challenge site is Artful Whimsy (she also has an Etsy Store Tickled Pink Boutique, but that site is down tonight). I love wearing fun pendants like these that make me smile when I see them in the mirror. I hope you find inspiration.

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 Artful Whimsy that inspired you.

Kathleen Lammie joined me this week in making an additional card to inspire you.

Use the keyword: IC340 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

Kathleen Lammie’s sample ~ You are lucky, I’m the nice nurse!

My sample ~ Craft On

IC340 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.

Another fantastic site, Stef! I like these pendants too. SO much inspiration. The one I chose got me started on my 4th of July stash.

Heart IC340 Vintage Sewing Collage

Stef- great site for inspiration, thanks! I was influenced by the French Cafe Sign and came up with Vintage Sewing Collage using my new Sizzix/Jim Holtz EFs. I even did some paper piecing on the little girl's dress!

What a great site today Stef. I had so much fun looking around trying to decide on what to do. I ended up making 4 cards and still have one more in mind. I could've dropped some money here too - if I had some!!
Thanks again for another fun challenge.
