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.


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.


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.

Here's my card. I was inspired by this page : 7/2 STRAWBERRY MARGARITA JELLO SHOT

I added the green, based on the limes in the photo, and very lightly sponged pink spots to my background, like the bowl in the picture. Thanks for looking :)

IC657 Alpine gift bag
Julie- such a fun site, thank you! I was inspired by the colors and patterns of the Homemade Candy Bark- and went with recycling a plaid shortbread box (inside out, the plaid bag interior complements my washi tape outside bag borders- and using a holiday tissue box for my house and trees. I fashioned my bag using a Lawn Fawn goodie bag die- adding a top trim of gingham ribbon and two buttons. Finished with a gift card. Here's Alpine gift bag

After much bopping about on the Inspiration site I found myself 'off-site' on their Pinterest page - but since I actually found inspiration there I don't think the Inspiration Police will have a problem with me posting my card.

I'm from the Cincinnati area and had just visited the zoo. I was so pleased to share this card as we had just seen Fiona--our "now not such a baby" hippo. I was inspired by the first project shared by our hostess. Here's my card. Hippo Birdie by sgc - at Splitcoaststampers

IC657 bunny enclosure
Inspired both by the Halfway Handmade Plush Bunny and this nifty "topside bunny" die I received today in the mail- decided to make a "bird's eye view" model of our bunny enclosure. There's 2 sleeping bunnies, a litter box, a wood grain bunny sleeping tent, apple branch to gnaw on, "water bowl", and vellum to represent their pieces of hay. Finished with a large carrot. Here's bunny enclosure (sits on a mat in our dining room table area :))

I was inspired by the colors and design of this: DIY Swan Garland - A Beautiful Mess. The tree colors and the ball-shaped swag, which reminded me of the MME patterned paper I used. Here is my card: Belated Birthday Wishes - Sister-in-Law #2!
