Arrow IC381 ~ Madewell {03-23-13}

Inspiration Challenge 381 ~ Madewell

This week’s Inspiration Challenge comes from retailer Madewell . Madewell (also known as J. Crew’s sister store) has been making jeans since 1937 and now stocks everything a woman needs to be in style from head to toe.

I invited Angie ( amrucci ) to join me with an additional inspired card this week.

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 design from Madewell that inspired you.

Use the keyword: IC381 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

amrucci’s sample ~ Mavis in a Denim Dress

My sample ~ Spirited Feathers

IC381 Gallery

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.

Fun site, as always, loaded with inspiration, Stephanie. I had no idea that J Crew had a "sister company"...and in existence for so long. Always learn something on SCS. Thanks.

Wink IC381 Beach Blue Flipflops

Great site! Loved the soft blue of the Indigo Ink Pocket Tee (Indigo Ink Pocket Tee - our designers love - Women's NEW ARRIVALS - Madewell) and used my new Gina K. stamp set, a shapeabilities die from Surf's Up, and some SU stamps- for my scene. Here's Beach Blue Flipflops
