IC18 - Purse (Inspiration Challenge)
 
1 Attachment(s)
Inspiration Challenge #18 (Don't forget to add IC18 to your keywords please!)

I'm posting a tad early because I won't be around on Saturday - I'll be helping my mom with stamp camp (keep your fingers crossed that the surprise pop-up card doesn't take forever to complete). I'll check in lunch time though.

Today's inspiration comes from a purse (well a magazine ad for a purse as I would never actually be able to afford such a purse).

Feel free to translate the inspiration item into a card, a scrapbook page, or another project. Be inspired by the colors, layout, theme, or anything else -- this is up to your own interpretation!

Here is my card:

I really loved the leather look combined with the metal accents.

Woohoo! I've been waiting for you! I keep forgetting if this comes out Friday or Saturday! Sorry for the double post!

Kathyc 04-07-2006 07:50 PM

I was hoping to see this tonite! I like your card, especially the beads; I keep wanting to try those after seeing a few cards by Joni using beads! This might be my chance!

Hey Karen, I can see the sketch challenge layout for last week in your purse! Great photo and I hope I get time to do something with it tomorrow.

I used to post on Friday afternoons as to not post on the same day as the Scrapping challenges, but those challenges moved to Friday so I took up Saturday. I just like keeping you all on your toes :)

Ooo, this looks like fun. I love that western look. Sure wish SU had some great western stamps. I might have to get out my leather! That is so cool to stamp on.

Barbra1224 04-07-2006 08:34 PM

Hi Karen! Thanks for posting early. I'm glad April Fool's is over. I still need to think about this awhile. Maybe it will come to me in a dream...

jsbrooketrout 04-08-2006 02:58 AM

Oooooooo........hmmmmmmmm. OK... I think I see something! I will have to wait til this afternoon. I need to head out this morning! Can't wait to see what everyone does!
Thanks Karen!

jstarbright 04-08-2006 05:10 AM

Oh my gosh I see the SC too! I have tons of beads if anyone needs some for the challenge today, come on over anytime!

Gladd-lyStamping 04-08-2006 06:16 AM

Smell the smoke? Its my brain cooking! :)

I have time to stamp this afternoon, and can't wait to get started.........

Thanks for the fun challenge!

Hey Karen! I will be playing in my first round today. I hope to be able to play on a regular basis. I like the idea of forcing myself to be more creative with the things around me. I need a nudge in that direction.

I am so glad for the "Divine" intervention that led to me discovering this challenge.

I will post my pic soon... take it easy on me, I am new. LOL

Welcome. Don't worry, we won't be "hard" on you.:D These have been some really fun challenges. Definitely makes you think a bit. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

twget 04-08-2006 08:19 AM

Thanks Raduse for the welcome.

OK, here is what I came up with. It is pretty simple but when I saw the purse I thought of faux stitching and sweet spot. Then, I liked the way Cole Haan was written so I added "friendship" with the silver eyelets. It is a simple card but most of mine are.

jstarbright 04-08-2006 08:42 AM

Here is mine, it seemed so busy when I was making it but now seems kind of plain on the screen, hmmmmm:

Hi Joyclynn, my secret sistha. Welcome!!

kthaman 04-08-2006 09:46 AM

I'm checking in. You folks are doing great! I'll check back later.

judylb 04-08-2006 12:18 PM

Thanks for the challenge Karen. I didn't replicate the purse but went for the Western/leather look.

raduse 04-08-2006 12:43 PM

Here's my first card for the challenge Karen. I didn't replicate the purse either. It made me think of the old "wild" west, so this is what I came up with.

These are great cards!

Rox71 04-08-2006 04:17 PM

I have one done and it's different, I don't know what else to say other than 'got eyelets'! Oh and my shoulder hurts!

Here's my card

Wasatch Wizard 04-08-2006 04:21 PM

I loved the inspiration picture this week...there just seemed to be so many possibilities for it! This is my first card and unfortunately I probably wont get any more posted before Monday due to tomorrow being no upload day but I plan to have fun playing with this again tomorrow! Thanks so much! Here is my card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...57953&cat=3552

Before you click on my link, first click on Karens photo of the purse and tilt your head sideways to look at it, then come back and click on my link.

OMG Joni - I so totally see that. Boy, you folks are keeping me on my toes, I'm going to have to start turning my pictures every which way before I decide to post ~LOL. To fun!!

jsbrooketrout 04-08-2006 06:11 PM

Hi all! I have one in the works but haven't finished it yet! I am just so tired from a way too busy couple of days! I am really loving all the cards so far.... this was fun!! Thanks Karen!

jsbrooketrout 04-08-2006 06:58 PM

OK..... I lied! I just couldn't go to bed with out finishing this and posting it before Sunday!
I think this is THE most challenging challenge...... you really have to come up with everything on your own. Thanks Karen for really testing me! Let me know what you think! Thanks for looking!

I started with marking the back of the card with the arcs and stitching. Then measured and punched out the holes for the eyelets. Next came sponging all of vanilla cs with VersaMark and covering it with clear ep and embossing. Heated the ep and followed by sponging Creamy Caramel ink over the ep. Then I set the eyelets. I think this card is a little lacking, but have tried more ribbon, gold wire and some different hardware, but it distracts too much. Am open to suggestions if you have any.
I found that sewing circles on paper is harder than it would seem. Paper just doesn't turn under the needle as smoothly as fabric. But I liked the circle pattern on the inspriration photo.
Thanks Kthaman for a way to make a leather-looking background.

These have been wonderful entries this week. I know next weekend is Easter, but I will have a challenge, so I hope many of you will be able to play again. Thanks to all you joined in this round!!

Inspired Purse
 
I held off until this morning in support of No Load Sunday. Here is my pitiful insoiration purse. I was not creative enough to come up with a fabulous card as I have seen here, but just a humble little Easter purse. I had a small purse template and I felt inspired to do an Easter purse. I hope that counts. Thanks for looking.
