Arrow IC497 - The Shabby Creek Cottage {06-13-15}

Let's go Shabby Chic this week and find our inspiration via beautiful home decorating tips! I bet you'll also be inspired to add something fun to your home decor when you browse : Shabby Chic Cottage. I found loads of inspired designs that I hope will spark your creative juices too!

My Card


Challenge Goals:
Don't be tempted to upload a card that you have made prior to this challenge, just because an image on the board reminds you of it. Rather, take the challenge of allowing your creative juices to flow based on your impressions when you look through the images. Remember, it can just be the color palette or style that ignites your creativity. Whatever draws you to the designs, take the challenge of doing something uniquely inspired today.



Please remember that all inspiration links should be inspired by images from the Shabby Chic Cottage.


Use the keyword: IC497 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

IC497 Gallery

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many images to choose from, I've uploaded 5 of my favorites..… so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. Click on the images below to see them bigger and to get their links on SCS. Don't forget to let us know which photo served as your inspiration piece please.

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.

Heart IC497 Berry Special

Audrie- a cool site! I was inspired by the aqua and red of the Valentine's Day Tablescape and used SU's Knobby Gnomes for my strawberry guy. Here's Berry Special
