You're currently viewing Splitcoaststampers as a GUEST.

This week’s inspiration comes from a fabulous French company Bonjour Mon Coussin (Hello My Cushion). They make unique pillow covers inspired by old documents found (vintage postcards, an 1873 marriage certificate, old publicity …) or drawn from their own world (voyages, divers, and unusual objects …)
For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I have uploaded three of my favorite pillow covers 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 the Bonjour Mon Coussin website for your inspiration. Just remember to link us to a picture of the dress that inspired your creation.
Use the keyword: IC179 (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.
Ugghhh, why didn't I buy that Tim Holtz stamp set tonite at Michaels? Ya know, the one with the Eiffel Tower???? Just kidding; I am sure that I can come up with something using supplies I have!!! Great site as always Stef!
If you get and appreciate comments, leave comments! Pay it forward....You'll make someones day!
This was a tough one for me.....my mind is not that eclectic but I used a pillow for a jumping off point and my card looks soft instead of funky, but hey, I tried..... Here is my card and the pillow I chose is linked on the upload of the card. Can't wait to see what all the eclectic stampers do with this one! Here's mine:

What a wonderful site - all those biscuits and liquorice and the amazing little coloured macaroon things are making me hungry. I think I'm good to go with the Paris theme and an image marilynprestonn sent me.
