Inspiration Challenge 74 - Cake Stand - IC74

Thank you Susan (aka Rainy) for sharing this Cake Stand from the Horchow catalog.

My sample: Southwest Hello
View Submissions

Please use the IC74 keyword when uploading your card (no space b/n IC and the challenge number).

There are no rules, so let your creative juices run wild -- be *inspired* and go get stamping! View the attached image. You may be inspired to recreate the piece - but that isn't necessary...get your inspiration from the colors, layout, or 'theme'. Don't worry - no card is 'wrong'!

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). Thank you.

Very interestin! This will take some thought - will have to sleep on it! Thanks for the challenge!

Mary56 05-04-2007 09:13 PM

Oh my goodness, where on earth did you find such a far out cake stand? OK, I went back up to see if you disclosed the info -- will have to check out that catalogue! :) Thanks for the challenge, I'm imagining tons of very cool cards with this!

What a fun cakestand!! Thanks for another wonderful challenge Karen and neighbor Susan :)

Duckwaddlequack 05-04-2007 09:17 PM

Hmmmm.... Some more shoe inspiration!!! Love it! We're away for the weekend but I brought a few things along - I'll have to see what I can come up with!

beadn&stampn 05-04-2007 09:19 PM

How fun! Thanks for the inspiration! I think this will be another Mothers Day card....

Stampin'4Fun 05-04-2007 09:51 PM

Cool Inspirational challenge!! So many ways to go with this one - - got something in mind. I am about tired of cakes and cookies, though. Just finished baking my 100th cookie for a bake sale tomorrow and it is 11:50PM!! DH is out of town, so, I might actually get to work on this. Thanks for posting it.

Here is mine, a super quick, easy and plain card:

Duckwaddlequack 05-04-2007 11:02 PM

Can't believe I had this shoe with me! I grabbed a few old retired sets to take along on our trip this weekend.

I finally cut into a sheet of the Fancy Pants paper I've been hoarding! Thanks for the nudge, Karen!

Here's what I came up with:

I just loved this cake stand the moment I saw it!!
Here's the card it inspired:

bensarmom 05-05-2007 02:38 AM

Can't wait to play
Thanks for another great challenge Karen. Will play later today after I get home from a garage sale at my kid's school. I am working at it for a few hours.

Mothermark 05-05-2007 03:05 AM

I love the cake stand but the cupcakes look good to! Nummers!

DawnL 05-05-2007 05:13 AM

oh cute! :lol: thanks Karen and Susan;)

TERRORE3 05-05-2007 05:23 AM

Here's two for me today. Great challenge Karen. TFL

got cake?

cheers to 40

StampingQueenJAR 05-05-2007 05:31 AM

Really neat inspiration piece. I love this one. Now to go see what I can come up with.....

Later - Well, here it is. I really like the cake stand -- the card was hard to come up with. A little odd, but I guess it turned out okay. The red triangle is supposed to be reminiscent of a napkin.... Thanks for looking! Great challenge, Karen!

Cake for You

Mothermark 05-05-2007 05:52 AM

Couldn't get 'er done! (The cupcake I mean....)

Here is mine.

Terry, the second link wasn't working for me, but I found it:

twget 05-05-2007 06:01 AM

I love that cake plate! It is just so cute!
Here's my take on it...

Clownmom 05-05-2007 06:03 AM

What a great cakestand! Thanks, Susan and Karen, for sharing it with us. This was a fun card to make. BTW, one of my other hobbies is collecting salt and paper shakers. The Cinderella and Slipper is one of about 150 sets that I have. I thought it would be an appropriate accent piece for the photo.

Here's my card -- http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...47867?cat=8921

Karen Stamps! 05-05-2007 06:28 AM

What a neat cakestand! I love the pedestal part especially. I hope I get a chance to play later on.

Rascal 05-05-2007 06:37 AM

I usually don't do this challenge but an idea actually popped into my head when I saw this pretty cakestand. Thanks for looking!!


Cammie 05-05-2007 07:40 AM

Thanks Karen and Susan for the great inspiration...

I took the shoe part of the inspiration piece and "ran" with it. (Sorry, couldn't help myself!)

Here is:

These Shoes Weren't Made for Walking!

Have a great weekend everyone!

My card for today's challenge! Thanks so much for this great challenge I was reminded of our Wedding Cake.

Cute challenge - thanks.
I was kind of restricted because I needed to do masculine get well cards. So this is what I came up with. I need to stamp all day! We just arrived near Gunnison, CO - our summer location, and I am looking out the window at a beautiful snowfall - good day to stay in.


jstarbright 05-05-2007 08:18 AM

Zany as Susan's cake platter find is I love, love the inspiration it gave me for my card, thanks much !


parkerquilter 05-05-2007 08:42 AM

Good Morning gals!

Oh I had fun with this one:


I'll probably do another one because it was sooooo fun! Thanks Karen for a great inspiration challenge!

~~~Thanks for looking too!

lacyquilter 05-05-2007 09:00 AM

Here's my funky colored one: bella for you.

stampertammy 05-05-2007 09:08 AM

What an unusual cake stand! I have some ideas to work on after lunch! Trying to resist the urge to look at the samples done so far until I get mine done! :)

~CA~ 05-05-2007 09:13 AM

I'm leaving in a few for an overnight trip. I'll try to get to this when I get back tomorrow.

artsylori 05-05-2007 10:02 AM

It is amazing how everyone's take is so different, love it! Here is my take on it:

fivekids7 05-05-2007 10:16 AM

Here is my card for today,


raduse 05-05-2007 10:37 AM

That is an interesting cake stand. We should get some fun cards/projects out of this one.

parkerquilter 05-05-2007 10:44 AM

Here's another take (completely different than the first one):


~~~Thanks again for looking!

wannabcre8tive 05-05-2007 11:13 AM
