IC21 - Toy Tag (Inspiration Challenge)
 
1 Attachment(s)
Inspiration Challenge #21 (Don't forget to add IC21 to your keywords please!)

Today's inspiration comes from a product tag from toys I bought my girls recently.

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!

In honor of this weekend's VSBN I did a scrapbook page for my challenge piece. I'll try to do a card today (but I wanna scrap :) ). The toy name was very inspirational -- it gave me the title and theme for my page! I took the colors and the blocky design, and even managed to fit the sun in there!

My layout is too big to attach here, so I've uploaded it, but it isn't approved yet, but I need to take my daughter to ballet...here is the link, hopefully it will be approved soon:

I'll check back in a little later.

Go get stamping!

Might have to think about this one. Felt good to sleep late this morning. Thanks for the challenge, Karen.

I love those colors together! I would have never thought to do it. I am doing a card with the new set I got at regionals last weekend! Will post the pic later.

CardFanatic 04-29-2006 05:14 AM

Karen... I LOVE your page! I need to do one like that! I always have miscellaneous pictures and now I can put at least one season together on a page. Thanks for the inspiration.

dawnmercedes 04-29-2006 05:34 AM

I totally see this as a scrapbook page! Nice job.

showmestamper 04-29-2006 05:42 AM

I like those bold, summery colors; I should be able to come up with something for this one!

BeagleMom 04-29-2006 07:16 AM

This looks fun! I like the bright colors on this inspiration. Let's see if I can get something posted before Wednesday....

That's what I thought as soon as I saw it!:D

Barbra1224 04-29-2006 10:17 AM

What a fun colorful tag. I'll try to get to it this weekend! Thanks karen!

katieg 04-29-2006 12:22 PM

What a great inspiration! You got me to pull out pics from my son's birthday party 6 months ago to do a scrapbook page! Here's mine:

Here's mine These turtles were given to me and it's the first time I've used them, they aren't even mounted yet. Thanks for the challenge Karen!

mrikitty 04-29-2006 01:06 PM

OK, so I am bit confused...what is the actual "inspiration" item????

ruby-heartedmom 04-29-2006 01:13 PM

I envisioned a set of cards, but only did one. I'll share my idea here, because it is really better for scrapping than for a card. You could use it for a double page spread of each season to scrap a year in a hurry. Playing off the quote on the tag:
Random Acts of Summer
Exuberant Days of Autumn
Brisk Frolics of Winter
Joyous Moments of Spring

Here's my card: Summer

Susan, the piece from which you should be inspired are the toy tags -- see the attachment one the first post. My interpreation of that piece is the link (a scrap page).

Let me know if that doesn't clear it up (I've got a headache, so I may not be explaining well).

The attachment at the top of the page. This time it is the two tags. You can play off of anything they make you think of--use the colors, the layout, the image, the theme, or it could just be a memory that it triggers. There aren't any wrong "answers". It's kind of fun to see the many different directions our minds take us after using the same item for inspiration.

ruby-heartedmom 04-29-2006 04:27 PM

oops. I guess Karen had already answered your question, Susan. I didn't realize that I hadn't refreshed this page before I answered.

dpierstamper 04-29-2006 04:30 PM

I worked on this one most of the afternoon--It was a bugger, because I like the lettering on the tags and tried to mimic that by shadowing letters and setting on trapezoid, it just didn't work. So after finally getting the lettering back to basic and simple the rest of the card just fell together. My first time using my paper piercer and I can tell I need to practice

Another great brain teaser Karen. Think I'll put this in the Keiki card shipment to Rox71.

Other people have had that happen before...I have no idea what makes them not show up...a mystery! Glad they are displaying now!

lacyquilter 04-29-2006 08:26 PM

I can't believe how much I struggled with this. I'm not real happy with it, but I'm not going to belabor it. Here's my spirelli block.

rainy 04-29-2006 10:40 PM

Thought this was a lot of fun. Sure would have never put these colors together on my own... and probably never will again! lol

Got another season done. Did Poppin' Pastels on the letters for this one, then covered with diamond dust.
