Splitcoaststampers.com - the world's #1 papercrafting community
You're currently viewing Splitcoaststampers as a GUEST. We pride ourselves on being great hosts, but guests have limited access to some of our incredible artwork, our lively forums and other super cool features of the site! You can join our incredible papercrafting community at NO COST. So what are you waiting for?
This week’s inspiration comes from the very fun French Bull Store. The idea for French Bull came about from a desire to create homeware products for design conscious consumers at accessible prices. French Bull’s mastery of pattern and color has come to life in a wide range of products for the modern lifestyle. I hope they inspire you.
For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I have uploaded three of my favorites from the website… so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. For the rest of you, feel free to use anything from French Bull for your inspiration … just provide a link, so we can all see what inspired you.
Use the keyword: IC174 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.
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. 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.
Thanks for the neat looking inspiration. Just got home from working at the school's carnival. I'm beat. Maybe have to wait until tomorrow to play or just skip it. I've really had a busy week and the inspiration challenge is my favorite too.

Well...I went to bed, and woke up about 30 minutes ago...I decided to stamp the night away! LOL! Poor Markie...He has HIVES....He's allergic to MANY foods...I guess we can add SHRIMP to the list...Bummer!
So it is another one of those "I can't get to sleep because I keep thinking about card design" nights! It is about 11:30pm on Friday night and am extremely sleepy, but thought I would try to post something since I have been absent for about a week due to a demanding work schedule. It was month end closing week, which always involves lots of long hours at the office. Anyways... I kind of forgot what my point was.
Hope you like it, it's kind of messy because I was too tired to look for my embossing buddy, but you'll get the idea.
My favorite challenge by far.......I can go to sleep now without visions of these flowers dancing in my head hopefully.....thanks for the great challenges week after week Steph! These are just the best stamping inspiration ever, every single week!!

But I've been intermittently having trouble getting into SCS all morning, so maybe just everything is running slow? It does sometimes happen that challenge cards take a while to show in the gallery - but not usually more than a few minutes.
