Arrow IC365 ~ Signals {12-01-12}

Inspiration Challenge 365 ~ Signals

This week’s SCS Challenge comes from one of my favorite holiday catalogs … Signals ~ gifts that inform, enlighten & entertain.

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 item from Signals that inspired you.

Use the keyword: IC365 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

My sample ~ Hold on to Hope

IC365 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.

One more and two to finish--for now anyway. Hee! Our December is loaded with birthdays, an anniversary, lots of thinking of you, and of course, the holiday. Unfortunately I'm not very prepared for these,occasions but the cards I'm making today, will help.

First time doing an Inspiration challenge in ages. Seems like the only time I can do one is when the rest of the family is out of the house. Here's my card .

Talking IC365 G is for genuine

I was inspired by the Handpainted Indian Stacking Tables with its bright colors, and came up with this card, using triple matting, a mini snowflake punch, and red embroidery floss. Here's G is for genuine

Great catalogue, love the items in it. I saw this image and had to use it. I actually have a stamp that is very similar, but went with another stamp I purchased and have been looking for a way to use it.

What a great website! There were so many things to choose from. I actually made two cards. The first one took a lot of trial and error, and is totally out of my comfort zone.
The second one was a CAS card, and was simple to make.
Thanks for a fun day in my stamp room today! It's been a while, and this was the perfect challenge to get me out of my hiatus!
