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 SCS Inspiration Challenge comes from ModCloth, an online store featuring fabulous vintage design. ModCloth was founded by high school sweethearts, Eric Koger and Susan Gregg Koger, and is built on a foundation of love for vintage and retro clothing. ModCloth features fabulous vintage designs along side the works from over 100 independent designers that thrive to keep combine vintage aesthetic with a bit of modern flair.
For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I’ve uploaded three of my favorites … so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. The rest of you, remember to let us know which product from ModCloth that inspired you.
Thanks for all of your well-wishes last week ... I am recovered and feeling much, much better.
I asked the talented Karen (Karen B Barber) to join me in making a sample for this week’s challenge.
Use the keyword: IC247 (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. Remember, if you are inspired by the creation of another artist, please do not use print-outs of the art in your creation or directly copy their work. 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.
Ha! Stef, you chose the dress in a million that I used as my inspiration as one of the narrowed down choices!!! What a coincidence!!! This was such a fun challenge!! Thanks Stef for asking me to help, I worked it out all week, and was so excited!! Here is my card:
Ah Steph - you're killing me over here! I should be going to bed, but am going through pages and pages of fabulous clothes, accessories - and did you see those red boots! I've marked a couple for inspriation - hope to play tomorrow! Night all!

Another inspiring site, Stef! I've had house guests the latter part of this week...still with us and I try to sneak in card-making time here & there. This one was a "quickie" since it is late and we have a full day tomorrow. I enjoyed your chosen site and had a stamp that was practically like one of the items. : )

There was some fabulous stuff there. I was really caught by the colour scheme in a red, grey and white cardigan, but opted for something else in the end.
Glad you're feeling better, Steph.
