Arrow IC556 - Paper Art {07-30-16}

Who loves fussy cutting paper? Ok...keep those hands up: Who loves cutting with dies? Anyone else go ga-ga over laser cut designs? Ok, if your hand is still not up with the rest of ours, then please forgive me for selecting our inspiration site from the most AMAZING Paper Arts Pinterest Board I have ever seen! Each pin is truly over the top spectacular! I know that even if you don't love paper cutting, I'll bet you'll find plenty of fun stamping inspiration there too! Whatever the case, please join us this week and be inspired by the beauty of paper arts and paper cutting!

My CAS Die Cut Card

Challenge Goals:
Please 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 - this is all about creating from an inspiration. So, please take the challenge of allowing your creative juices to flow based on the images you browse this week. 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 the Paper Arts Pinterest Board. Remember that your card might also end up on my Ongoing Inspiration Genius Board too, especially if it shows signs of extra deep inspiration! (smiles)

Use the keyword: IC556 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

IC556 Gallery


For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many images to choose from, or just don't subscribe to Pinterest, I've uploaded 10 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.

jaw dropping ah~mazing, Audrie! I love the ones using actual books the most. Reminds me of the mystery of the Edinburgh library artist.

Absolutely, jaw-dropping, amazing works of art!! (yes, I copied Susan) I have some ideas but have to wait until after work. One can get so lost on this beautiful page.

I can't wait to see what Kittie does!!!!!!

Awe inspiring board - and while I 'd like to join in the creative fun - Since I don't currently own any die cutting machines (I've put the word in my kids ears for Christmas!) it would probably take me 100 years to fussy cut something like these . . . I'll revisit these pages if Santa is good to me this year . . .LOL

Linda aka Bubbles....

You can be inspired by the paper arts but use stamps to create your card......I really don't think you must use die cuts.....just be inspired by the photos of the paper art.

happy stamping.....please join in with us

I thought of many talented die cutters who create here for SCS when I saw the Paper Art inspiration board. The gallery is sure to be AMAZING for this challenge!
Thank you Audrie!

Here is my card, Leaf's A Breeze

Ok Audrie, you are in trouble girlfriend!!! First of all, that board is incredible!!
Every time I see something that I want to do and start formulating a card in my head then I see something else and a new process starts!!! Well, now I have like 10 cards floating around in my head but don't have the time!!!!
See what you've done! AAAAAhhhhhh!!!! I'll be lucky to get one done!!
Seriously gorgeous board! Incredible, I don't know how ANY human could do such things with paper!

Heart IC556 Mossy Birches

Audrie- a truly wonderful site, thanks! I went with these wonderful paper creations- and used Taylored Expressions' Birch Trees die plate for my card, along with some "spanish moss" created from my DD's yarn collection. Here's Mossy Birches

Hi Audrie - I have picked my inspiration and will do my card later today. My windows were changed and my place is upside down ... you understand I am sure.

Heart IC556 Forest Wreath

Was inspired by this oh so cool scene and used a dry embossed, colored and misted tree background for my wreath card. My wreath is wrapped with "ribbons", and I added a decorative brad and beds. Finished with some distressing to my top edge and a bit of inking to match my fabric strip. Here's Forest Wreath

Audrie, this truly was an amazing site. It almost seems impossible to do what these artist do with paper. Here is my card.

Thanks to Audrey and her 3rd photo suggestion, I ended up discovering a whole new idea: Put carbon paper in your embossing folder!

When I saw this challenge I was quite happy. I have different dies and if I do not I draw them and cut them out. So it was perfect for me. I was very amazed at the work and in ahh of the beauty of all those delicate pieces of paper art. Thanks for the challenge.

I found a spark of inspiration, but then almost gave up on this one - all of the cards you guys have made are amazing! Then I started working on another challenge and found my mojo, combining the two ideas into one.
