Arrow IC561 ~ Designspirations

Inspiration Challenge 561

Hello everyone … I'm so glad to be back guest hosting for this week's Inspiration Challenge.

Our inspiration this week comes from Designspiration … a site focused on maintaining a high level of great design inspiration to share around the world.

You can browse through the images or use the word or color search features at the top of the page to narrow your scope.


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 product from Designspiration that inspired you.

Use the keyword: IC561(no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.


My first card: [email protected]


My second card: Beary Cool!


IC561 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 FanClub 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.

Heart IC561 Large Lattes

Had fun digging in my stash to find elements that worked with this awesome 9 square design- i went with lots of dots for my background, and added some dry embossing, and a coffee sleeve for my backgrounds. Put a top red dc border for an accent, and added some ribbons. Here's Large Lattes- there's one for you, too!

Very unusual site! But I found the perfect image that inspired me to get out a stamp I've rarely used. Here's my card:
