Card set

Three of my favorite things to do when stamping

  1. Look at challenge to give myself an aim of what to stamp and how I’ll design my card.  Today I had the Global Design Project #55 challenge in mind!
  2. Look at project I love that someone else has designed for some inspiration.  Sometimes it’s the colors, sometimes it’s the layout.  And sometimes, it’s just the blossom or the sentiment!  But looking through Pinterest or a few of my favorite blogs usually has me chomping at the bit to sit down and get stamping!  These cards were inspired by this card set by Jennifer McGuire
  3. Give myself a challenge to look through what I ALREADY HAVE!!  I have so many supplies and love buying more!  But I have to stop myself from buying more these days and look at the amazing images, colors, embellishments, paper, etc that I already have and use it!!  These blossoms are from a Stampin’ Up! set that retired a long time ago!  But When I pull out the stuff I already have, it fills me with gratitude for the fun things I have to fulfill my crazy stamping passion – as opposed to filling like I need more more more.  Don’t get me wrong.  A new item added to my collection is thrilling too!!!

Oh how I love stamping therapy!

Happy day 🙂



More sketch inspiration

I didn’t take part in this challenge, but I certainly loved playing with it to create a card for a loved one!

CAS(E) this sketch #189

I needed a set of cards for my niece who is serving a mission in Canada. I used CTS #189 for my inspiration! I always love the simple challenge that these sketches are.


I couldn’t resist making a few in different colors

With some sequins, dew drops and candy dots, my set of simple cards were complete

Stamping therapy is the BEST! 🙂
