Where Do I Get My Inspiration?

As some of you might know I have been chosen to be on the Great Lakes Demonstrator council for Stampin' Up!. We are a group of 7 Stampin' Up! demonstrators who work together with our Demonstrator Development Manager Shannon West on specific assignments. We all shared recently where we get our card ideas to give new demonstrators some inspiration.

Do you need some inspiration? Are you stuck with the stamp set right in front of you? Where do you go to get some ideas? I like to go through my Stampin' Up! catalogs. They are full of ideas and samples that are super inspiring. When I page through the catalog , my brain goes 100 miles an hour and I can't wait to play with my stamps, paper and embellishments. Sometimes I like the color combination and use different stamps, sometimes it's the stamp set that catches my attention and I switch up the colors and other times I combine different ideas from several samples. For the card below I found my inspiration in the new annual catalog. I kept the layout the same but I used completely different stamps and added more embellishments by punching out some vellum leaves.

And here is the sample that I used as an inspiration on page 156 of the catalog.

Thanks for stopping by today,
