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?
Since Valentine’s Day will soon be upon us, I thought it would be fun to find inspiration from a website that celebrates design and wedding inspiration ~ Santa Barbara Chic. I love their fabulous Shoesday posts … as well as posts focusing on Paper Art. I’m sure you will find something to inspire your creativity.
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 post or photo from Santa Barbara Chic inspired you.
I asked Beth (bigsky) to help me out this week by making an additional sample card to inspire you.
Use the keyword: IC271 (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.
I'm up way too late on a night where I really need sleep before a big Saturday (3 kids participating in 2 different big events) but I looked at the site before I headed to bed, big mistake. I saw the cool red/white stripe big top and had an idea right away so when sleep didn't come, the card did! Here's my Big Top Baby
Oh, WOW! Thanks for the awesome design inspiration site, Stef! I stumbled across Kelly's Inspiration Board posts and was immediately hooked. I will come back again and again to this blog!! Here's my card:
