I found Tracy Porter’s website and couldn’t stop clicking through. So many fabulous sources of inspiration in her clothing, shoes, jewelry, and oh those wonderful dishes … and it made me smile to see that she’s a Midwesterner like me.
For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I have uploaded three of my favorites … so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. For the rest of you, remember to link us up to the page/item on Tracy Porter that inspired you.
Use the keyword: IC189 (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.
I love Tracy Porter! After clicking over and checking out a few categories, I knew just the one to use as my inspiration! I'll get cracking on it in the morning Thanks, Steph, for a great inspiration challenge
LOVE this site - Stephanie picks the best inspiration!! Had an awful time getting a good photo- for some reason if one side of the pic is in focus the other side is ever so slightly off.....but anyway, here is my card:
i was inspired by this piece on the first page of the site. I new that I wanted to make a fishing card today and the blue in this picture along with the fish was the inspiration I needed. It is the blue square in the middle of the page. http://www.tracyporter.com/

Well, I had to do a second card before I cleaned up my stamping area for the day. The design on this platter reminded me of butterfly wings, so I used the colors and created this Katsina Stipple Butterfly card.
Stef, this was a great choice for inspiration. I loved looking at it all. My husband looked at the computer over my shoulder and asked me what I was buying. He doesn't listen when I share about the challenges. He looked at me like I was crazy when I said I wasn't buying anything just looking to make a card. Here is my faux bamboo card.
