Default IC746 {Ellen Hutson} March 21, 2020

Hi, & Welcome to this week's Inspiration Challenge. This week we are headed to one of my favorite places to peek for inspiration online  Ellen Huston.
Their blog can be seen here.
Have fun with this,
I have done my sample jump started off of the shaker card that looks like a dinosaur Polaroid framed photo in the last seen below. I know this is not as chatty as usual the formatting is still hinky since the last site update, but I am excited I did get permission from EH to have some photos to flash here for you all. I'm looking forward to see what sparks you all.


Use the keyword: IC746(no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words. Include your inspiration image in the description of your project being sure to only include links from Ellen Hutson.


Use the Keyword IC746

Here is a link to the IC746 Gallery

Here is a link to My Card

Did you know, we have an Inspiration Challenge Pinterest Board? Be sure to check it out!

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many, or too little,
images to choose from, I've uploaded a few of my favorite designs.
So just stick with one of those for your inspiration.
Click on the images below to see them bigger and to get their links on SCS.


**Please note: If you are unable to view the Inspiration Site in your country, please use one of the pictures provided for you (thumbnails below). Unfortunately, we have no control over the sites' viewing areas. **


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 post in this thread. Thanks for Joining along with us!

If you would like the chance to guest design with us, simply PM one of the IC hostesses with a site that has not been used before. If your site is selected we will send you a PM with all the details for your week as Guest Designer!


NEED HELP GETTING A LINK TO YOUR INSPIRATION PICTURE? Since so many are having trouble grabbing the link to just one picture, please try this:

If you are unable to grab the link of your chosen picture, (on some sites, you can't, it only gives a link to the whole collection), hover over the picture in the collection that you want to link to. On a windows machine, right click the picture (on a Mac, 2 finger click). When the options come up, select COPY IMAGE ADDRESS. This link will be for that picture.

So much to love about this website - I found some great paper packs as I can never seem to find much locally . . . .

I, too, have been a customer of Ellen's for a long time(first place that I saw Copics used, as well as, nesting dies). Her blog is great. Thanks for the challenge, Stacy.

Oh, Stacy, I wish you hadn't done this....sigh. Oh well, it's just money. Two cards, could have been 2,000.

My card is going to one of my students who was due to be doing exams this summer but has obviously had everything turned upside down like many people
