Arrow IC568 - It's a 3 x 3 Party! {10-22-16}

It's a 3 x 3 Party this week! This challenge is to create a 3 x 3 card inspired by the Mini Artworks: 3 x 3 Cards Pinterest Board. Pull out your scraps, or something brand new; no matter what things you use you'll have such fun exploring the possibilities! Once you get started it's like eating chips, I had to stop myself! I used up a bunch of scrap paper, and tried out a few of the stamps, inks, and dies that were sitting in my "new" basket (which is a little basket on my desk with new products that I haven't had a chance to use yet). It's so much easier to create a small card - less intimidating or something - LOL. The surprising advantage is that there are so many ways to use them too: lunchbox notes, love notes, gift cards to decorate presents, or just put it on your desk to inspire a new technique, or to provoke a smile! Since you'll need something nice to hold your mini-works-of-art, I've posted a video from our own SCS Tutorials below that shows how to make an adorable little box!


My Favorite Mini Card Sample
My Second Favorite Sample



Mini Note Box


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 site 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 come from the Mini Artworks: 3 x 3 Cards Pinterest Board. Remember I'll be scoping for new mini-pins for my
Ongoing Inspiration Genius Board too! (smiles)

Use the keyword: IC568(no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.



IC568 Gallery

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many images to choose from, or don't have Pinterest accounts, 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, and Enjoy!

My brain wanted to be more adventurous but the body wasn't up to it ... been a rotten week, but round the corner now thankfully.

Super cute board with the small cards. It does not take much to fill up a 3x3 card. Here are my cards:

Smile IC568 Bunny and star wreath cards

It was fun working with a 3 x 3 format! I used some cute dies I had by my Big Shot- used some paper that employed the shaving cream technique- and added die cut sentiments. Here's IC568 Bunny and star wreath cards
