This week's SCS Inspiration Challenge comes from the Etsy Shop of Villa Sorgenfrei . Shop owner Claudia describes it as Unique Shabby Chic Boho Patchwork. She designs affordable handmade self-designed lockets, necklaces, watches, rings and earrings with vintage elements that are sure to inspire you.
For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I’ve uploaded five 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 item from Villa Sorgenfrei are that inspired you.
I have asked Cynthia ( StampinAK ) to join me in making an additional card to inspire you.
Use the keyword: IC374 (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.
Stef- awesome site! I was immediately inspired by the Turquoise enameled locket with its pretty light blue coloration and bird motif. I used SU's Happy Together for my decorated metal tea box, and added multi layered flowers and some ribbons, floss and rickrack. Here's Happy Together

Thanks for the great challenge. I liked that site. It was fun to play today. I haven't done that in a while. Once November hits it I have so much less time, but now I want to get back into the swing of playing along. I made 2 for today's challenge. I'll come back to comment on everyone else's lovely creations later. I promised my kids I'd play a game and then I have to fix supper. Thanks for looking!
I made this for my parents' anniversary. I used my Bloom cricut cartridge for the "tiptoe through the tulips" & the fence & flowers. After I finished, I realized the flowers on the fence weren't tulips so I stamped the background in green, yellow & purple tulips with a stamo I got at Crafts 2000 a few years ago. The handle on the fence is a purple gem embellishment. There are waterfall stickles in the center of the flowers. TFL
