Arrow IC665 {9/1/18} Real Simple

Happy Saturday & welcome to the Inspiration Challenge! There is pretty much anything & everything on today's site. As I found out, a lot of the pictures will lead you somewhere else, but don't worry about it. This week's challenge is brought to you by Real Simple. I know you've probably seen the magazine, but the site is HUGE! So huge, it changes almost hourly. So hurry on over, check out Real Simple pick what appeals to you & go create! Be sure to link us up to what inspired you.

Use Keyword: IC665

Here's my card: Christmas Shopping

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 5 (or more) of my favorite designs! 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.

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.

NEED HELP LINKING A CARD? FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Open 2 windows. One for your card, one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type what you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window, highlight the address for your card. (The address bar will say //www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...stampers.....)
4. Click edit. Click Copy.
5. Go back to this thread. Click Paste.


NEED HELP GETTING A LINK TO YOUR INSPIRATION PICTURE?

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.

Smile IC665 ghost hug

Inspired by the ghosts on the staircase as a decorating idea- number 5 of the listed illustrated scenes - I used an enamel dot for the head shape, using parchment paper for the ghost's form, an adding a spiky bottom edge to the parchment. Rough twine was wrapped below the ghost's head to give it more form, and I drew a friendly face. Dry embossed the background with skeleton heads and scrolls, doing a direct to paper swipe technique to highlight the raised areas and give it a distressed look. Added a panel of vintage halloween paper from my stash, and a hand written sentiment from Pinterest. Here's ghost hug

Default IC665 Glorious Moment

I liked the snowmen here:
Homemade Christmas Crafts for Kids - Real Simple

and used some wrapping paper that I remembered I had. Thanks, Julie. I had such fun making this that I made another just like it. A rarity for me.

This was a tricky site to navigate, but once I got the hang of it, there was much to see! I went to "Shop" and women's clothing, and I ended up at Lulu's. I found a lovely navy with large white flowers, long, flowing dress...so pretty. Here is the link: Navy Blue Floral rint High-Low Wrap Dress Lulus, and here is my card: Zinnia Hugs for a Daughter!
