Arrow IC451 - Leif Shop {07-26-14}

It's great to be back home and I plan to play along on Saturday from the comfort of my own craft room! This week's inspiration site is Leif Shop. I really love this site because of the deep color palettes and neutrals, as well as the variety of textures. I think you'll find it very inspiring!

My Single Layer Card
My Feminine Version


Challenge Goals:
Don't be tempted to upload a card that you have made prior to this challenge, just because an image 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 Leif Shop site.

Use the keyword: IC451 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

IC451 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 IC451 Beautiful Hexagons

Audrie- hope your trip was fabulous! I was inspired by the Color Cutout Hexagon Coasters - I used my honeycomb ef for my hexagons- and SU's You're So Lovely for my floral image. Added some hardware from my SCS friend Carmen. Finished with some rickrack. Here's Beautiful Hexagons

I immediately was inspired by the lovely plants in silvery sage green. Here's what I came up with.
