Default IC702 {Country Living} May 18, 2019

Hi, & Welcome to this week's Inspiration Challenge. Where we are headed to the Country Living online and, it is such a huge site that my best advice is to plug something you think you would like to see or find into the search box. I picked this site wanting to do a lavender card and I ended up coloring something that I thought was going to be peonies instead because, the rabbit hole is deep here.

Have fun with this,
I am looking forward to see what sparks you all.


Use the keyword: IC702(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 Country Living.


Use the Keyword IC702

Here is a link to the IC702 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 15 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.

My mother got Country Living magazine for years & years so this brings back lots of memories. I found LOTS of cool DIY door art to inspire me.

Cool IC702 palm tree celebration

inspired by this guest bedroom - I double stamped this palm tree image, and added a repurposed box for my brown striped border to pair with my patterned stripe on the other side of my main panel. Added a triangular sentiment block. Here's palm tree celebration

I made an anniversary card for our niece using a peach champagne cocktail as my inspiration.
