Arrow IC457 ~ {more} sprinkled joy ~ 09-06-14

Inspiration Challenge 457

Hello everyone … so glad to be back with you as guest hostess for this week's Inspiration Challenge.

Our inspiration this week comes from a fun Etsy Store {more} sprinkled joy, which features paper straws & mason jar lids.

You might find inspiration from paper straws … or from the colors and patterns … or even from the names of the collections … just let your inspiration take you where it wants to go.

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 product from {more} sprinkled joy that inspired you.

Use the keyword: IC457 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

My card: Fox in Socks

IC457 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.

Stephanie, I'm delighted to see you back in the hostess chair...even tho' just for a week. I also appreciated your uploading early since I have a busy week-end ahead and this gave me a chance to do a quick watercolor with my inspiration. What a fun site...and one to keep in mind for entertaining. Thanks!

Smile IC457 Fall tag

Stephanie- loved the Mason Jar Lids, so I got out my tag maker and snowflake punches from CM, and added some leaves, the edges brushed with blue green ink, and colored with some orange pencil. Sewed the leaves to the tag with black baker's twine for an accent. Here's Fall tag

IC457 Your Biker Day
I have to admit that at first I was a bit puzzled how to find a way into this challenge - other than the chalkboard tags. (Well, actually I loved the Mason jar lids too, I have to say).
But after taking time to think about it I really enjoyed using the colours and designs in the straws - and made a card I need to mail off this week. Win, win, thanks Stef!

Thanks Stef for the fun site and challenge! I was inspired by a set of Halloween straws and the yellow mason jar lids. Coincidentally, the inspired colors and shape went hand-in-hand with a card in today's FS's (Jingle) gallery that I liked.

Happy Haunting!

and

Dance to the Light of the Moon

THANKS for looking!

I'm wondering why my card didn't/doesn't appear in the Inspiration gallery. Last week I transposed numbers, no clue this week.
