You're currently viewing Splitcoaststampers as a GUEST.

You can join our incredible papercrafting community at NO COST. So what are you waiting for?
Stephanie is enjoying time off this week! Your favorite hostess with the mostess will be back again next week!!
This week's Inspiration Challenge website is Crate Label Museum. Colorful paper labels have been used to identify products since the early 1880s. Introduced to America by European artists, this profession became known as lithography, the first commercial art.
Enjoy your journey through this inspiring website. Let the themes or color schemes inspire you to create!! I've attached a few of my favorite inspiration pieces below for you to use, but feel free to browse the web gallery to find your own particular inspiration!
Use the keyword: IC228 (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 and/or browse the suggested website. 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 on -- 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 stepping in, Anne. I love the inspiration site this week. Of course, I had to hone in on the section called Florida. I found this label for my inspiration. I did this in a hurry before going to bed. I will be back in the morning to comment -- and probably to find some more inspiration. Here's my card - A Hoppy Inspiration.

Thanks SCSers for all your encouragement!
Thanks Anne for a great challenge. I found three different labels that inspired card ideas, which is amazing because I usually just can't "see" a card when I look at graphics or ads. I really enjoyed this challenge and plan to make more like this card. I've also enjoyed looking at everyone else's beautiful cards inspired by this site.
