Arrow IC488 - Shafts of Light {04-11-15}

This week we have the pleasure of having Stacy Sheldon (aka JBgreendawn) as our guest hostess. Stacy has been inspiring us with her amazing gallery for almost a decade! I love the diversity in her style, and really enjoy browsing her gallery for great ideas and inspiration! As guest hostess this week, Stacy has selected a beautiful Pinterest Board called Shafts of Light by Rusty. (FYI: Rusty has over 100,000 followers!) This weeks board is loaded with the most inspiring pins ever! All artistic expressions of light and color that I'm sure will spark new and creative energies in all of us! Won't you join us and create something uniquely inspired of your own today?! Thank you Stacy for joining in, and for inspiring us this week with Shafts of Light!

Stacy's Fabulous Card Design
My Mixed Media Card


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 Shafts of Light board pinned by Rusty.

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




Use the keyword: IC488 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

IC488 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..… so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. Click on the images below to see them bigger and to get their links on SCS. Don't forget to 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.

Smile IC488 Cross Country Coffee

Audrie- lovely images! I was inspired by the transportation photo and used a cool map image, plane, and coffee cup and beans from my SCS friend Lisa. sponged then crumpled my map, cup, and airplane images as to distress them, and used some birch tree like dp in the background. Finished with 2 small brads, and a brown gingham border. Here's Cross Country Coffee
