Arrow IC175 ~ Grandin Road {04-11-09)

Inspiration Challenge 175 ~ Grandin Road

This week’s inspiration comes from the Grandin Road online store, which specializes in home and gift merchandise. There are lots of different categories to inspire you.

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I have uploaded three of my favorites from the website, as well as linking to the two pieces of art that inspired my projects (yes, I was so inspired that I couldn’t stop at one card this week)… so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. For the rest of you, feel free to use anything from Grandin Road for your inspiration … just provide a link, so we can all see what inspired you.

Use the keyword: IC175 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

My sample #1 ~ Stamp Collage inspired by Postal Collage

My sample #2 ~ Asian Impressions inspired by Coral Impressions

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. 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.
