Finding Your Inspiration

Hello again! I hope you're all fairing well in this heat wave? Me, I'm hanging out here with the air conditioners! A little wilted but overall fairing well! Anyway, today I wanted to revisit the topic of finding inspiration. In previous posts, I have spoke of finding inspiration from your Stampin' Up! Catalog and idea book as well as from your surroundings. Today, I want to talk to you about finding your inspiration from card sketches. There are sketches all over the Internet. Pinterest alone has a plethora of sketch ideas for you to refer to and get your creative juices flowing. As a matter of fact, I currently hold a weekly sketch challenge on my Facebook page where we have so much fun seeing what everyone comes up with each week. It's amazing to see each individual's interpretation of the weekly sketch. You literally have one sketch layout and a half dozen completely different card ideas! It's just so awesome. So, my challenge to you is, visit Pinterest, search card sketches and choose one you love then choose your favorite stamp set and go to town. You will be amazed at what you come up with. 
Here is this weeks challenge sketch: 
And here is my interpretation using one of my favorite stamp sets from the new 2016-2017 catalog, Jar of Love 
So what are your thoughts? Where are you finding your inspiration? Share with us in the comments below! Have a great day, stay cool and happy stamping,

Shaker Jar

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love, love, love this new catalog and the wonderful products it offers! And today's stamp set is no exception! This card was so fun to put together and nothing makes me smile like shaking up a card and I love to give these shaker cards because they kind of keep on giving. Think about it, who doesn't love to get a hand-made card? Now add to it an element that makes them want to "play" with it! Yep, keeps 'em smiling, hence, keeps on giving!
Ok, so here is today's card:
