Arrow IC472 - Packaging Board {12-20-14}

I want you to know that after doing 300 Christmas cards (yep - it was a HUGE stamp camp), it will be a very long time before I want to make another Christmas card - LOL. So I picked a site to warm us up a bit, but which will still favor the season (because this week's inspiration site is sure to inspire plenty of holiday gift wrapping ideas)! We're going back to Pinterest again to a beautiful Packaging Board with over a thousand beautiful packaging ideas pinned by Joy in the Philippines! I just know you'll find it hard to pick just one inspiration piece this week! Enjoy!

My CAS Single Layer Card #1
My CAS Single Layer Card #2


Challenge Goals:
Don't be tempted to upload a card that you have made prior to this challenge, just because an image on the board reminds you of it. Rather, take the challenge of allowing your creative juices to flow based on your impressions when you look through the images. Remember, it can just be the color palette or style that ignites your creativity. Whatever draws you to the designs, take the challenge of doing something uniquely inspired today .

Please remember that all inspiration links should be inspired by images from the Packaging board pinned by Joy.

If you are unfamiliar with how to grab the hyperlinks from a Pinterest Board, here is a helpful video:




Use the keyword: IC472 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

IC472 Gallery

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many images to choose from, I've uploaded five of my favorites (plus one that I found worth a smile!)… so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. Click on the images below to see them bigger. Please let us know which photo served as your inspiration piece please.

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.

I'm still in Christmas card making mode since all those supplies are still out....a good start for next year. The board certainly had loads of inspiration. Thanks.

LOL, Angella must be like me, and not have a Pinterest account. For some reason I can see more if I check on my phone, which was how I found my inspiration this morning, even though the small screen isn't the easiest for viewing.

Thanks, Audrie!

Wink IC472 Merry Snowman

audrie- awesome site, I had fun looking at all the cool labels and other goodies. I was inspired by the Williams Sonoma frosting labels and used a cool snowman stamp and sentiment from SU's Jolliest Time of the Year set, along with some layering. Background and bow are from a card swap. Here's Merry Snowman

Wink IC472 Snowman Joy

I was inspired by the Droga Chocolate packaging for my gift tag- used SU's Terrific Tags for my snowman, paired with dc snowflakes, and holly leaves. Here's Snowman Joy
