Default IC618 ~ Victorian Trading Co. {10-07-17}

Inspiration Challenge 618

I am thrilled to be your Guest Hostess for the Inspiration Challenge. Audrie is still caring for family, so I'll be joining you for a few weeks. It feels good to be back.

This week's inspiration comes from a store with lots of inspiration options – Victorian Trading Co. They are a creative cooperative of artisans and romantic spirits dedicated to a beautiful aesthetic. Victorian Trading Co. is wholly devoted to the preservation of an era steeped in refinement and beauty. There are lots of holiday decorations ... and so much more.


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 product from Victorian Trading Co. that inspired you.


Use the keyword: IC618 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

My inspired card: Hungry Harvey


IC618 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.

Stef, thanks for stepping in and giving us the challenge. Thinking of Audrie, also, and hoping things are better soon.

What a wonderful site you gave us today. The Christmas section makes me want to start decorating for Christmas. Ha

Stef- awesome site, thank you! Went with Tatum Pumpkin Girl for my inspiration. I did some embossing for my background, and added a die cut panel for my main image. A simple greeting box and some embellies. Here's Halloween Greeting

Loved looking at the Victorian Trading Co. website for inspiration...beautiful things! Thanks for this challenge. I chose this for my colorful inspiration: https://www.victoriantradingco.com/i...ilt-86-x-86-in, the Crazy Quilt. I was able to place this card in three SCS Challenges: CAS450, IC618, and FS557.

The Victorian Trading Co. had so many, many inspirations, and I found another that I couldn't resist. See my second inspiration here: Marie Antoinette Shoe Bags, which I chose for their lovely colors and flowers. See my Fall Flowers for a Birthday, the finished card from this inspiration.
