Default IC625 ~ The Company Store {11/25/17}

Inspiration Challenge 625

The site for this week's Inspiration Challenge is The Company Store. They opened their doors in 1911 as The La Crosse Garment Company, and for six generations have been committed to bringing us the very best products from right in La Crosse, Wisconsin (I love that town).

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, Ive 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 product from The Company Store that inspired you.

Use the keyword: IC625 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card and make sure you put commas between your key words.

My inspired cards:

Holiday Cheer

Spirits Bright

IC625 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 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.

So many lovely patterns! I went with a sheet set as my inspiration because I had dsp in a similar pattern. I used the Tape Roll Trinket Box Tutorial for my project.

Smile IC625 leaping reindeer

I was inspired by the holiday stocking- deer and used a vintage SU set for my card. Added some green stars and jolly snowmen for my leaping reindeer card.

Found my beginning mojo by starting with this challenge and using this little guy Eleven Design Studio Twoolies Sheep @ The Company Store as my muse! Take a peek at my card:Christmas is Snow Much Fun!, which used the wooly sheep's color scheme for the overall colors and helped me choose a snowman with orange nose for my image! GREAT challenge...thanks for sharing it with us!
