Arrow IC448 - Button Crafts {07-05-14}

I hope you are enjoying your fireworks and grilled foods! We go back to Pinterest today to celebrate buttons on the Button Crafts board by DeeDee J. I just love her pins, so full of pretty DIY projects, jewelry, and just plain old button genius! So, if you have a few minutes during this weekend of celebration, please stop by the board and see what it inspires you to create. BONUS ALERT: Extra credit points for actually ending up with a button somewhere on your card!

My Card


Challenge Goals:
Don't be tempted to upload a card that you have made prior to this challenge, just because an image on the board reminds you of it. Rather, take the challenge of allowing your creative juices to flow based on your impressions when you look through the images. Remember, it can just be the color palette or style that ignites your creativity. Whatever draws you to the designs, take the challenge of doing something uniquely inspired today .

Please remember that all inspiration links should be inspired by images from the Button Crafts board.

If you are unfamiliar with how to grab the hyperlinks from a Pinterest Board, here is a helpful video:



Use the keyword: IC448 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

IC448 Gallery

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many images to choose from, I've uploaded five of my favorites.… so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. Click on the images below to see them bigger. Please let us know which photo served as your inspiration piece please.

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.

Smile IC448 Oak and Pine

Audrie- great site for inspiration, thanks! I was influenced by the "buttons" with their earthy colors and used SU's Close To Nature for my pine cone and oak leaves and acorns images. I added some cool buttons from my stash, and some fabric ties for additional accents. Here's Oak and Pine

Here's my card because I LOVE buttons. They are so like people. Each one is different and unique in it's own way.

I am usually out of town for the 4th but stayed home this year. So I have extra time to pla y in the IC challenge. Loved this board full of button-y creations. Here's what I made:

SC494 IC448 Wonderful Buttons by CAKath - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I did use an actual button, so extra cookies for me. Thanks.
