Seeing all the brilliant things others make...especially on all the wonderful blogs around....and getting a brand new stamp [or even better a set of stamps!] always inspires me to be creative.

inspiration for me comes from the simplest of things it could be colours in nature, a pattern on a dress even the foil lid on a margarine tub has been known to spark an idea !!lol though sometimes inspiration can go a wandering and then there's places like this in blogland to visit, where like minded people can gain inspiration from each other to create beautiful items that bring a little joy into a special someones life

What inspires me to be creative is checking out other peoples blogs and getting new supplies from the store. Today I tried gesso on a project and I loved it. Come check it out. http://egads-stainedfingers.blogspot.com/

Lynne in NI said...

Its hard to say what inspires me ... sometimes its a sketch, sometimes a stamp, sometimes the paper ... and quite often from my blog-hopping!

Hi, loving all the bonuses you're offering!

I definately get inspired by blogs and challenges, a sketch or a recipe can really get the ideas flowing and seeing other people's gorgeous creations really is inspiring.

Also a new item, papers or a stamp can inspire me, as soon as you buy it you just know what you want to do with it and that's so exciting.

All the best

Julia said...

People inspire me! I love that crafty people are always so willing to share their creations and tutorials so others can create something of their own as well. I love just browsing the internet for all kinds of crafty things.

Deb Hoekstra said...

I find inspiration from other blogs. I never realized there was a whole network of ideas out there until I found out about Split Coast Stampers. I love to try new techniques as well. I tried to do a direct link here. In case it doesn't work here is my blog: http://beebugcreations.blogspot.com

NormaJean said...

wow this is a good question, alot of times my Husband and Children inspires me, to where I want to make them something from the heart instead of a store bought card.
But the Big inspiration Is Blog hopping seeing all the beautiful cards out there and the talent, this is how my stamp addiction got much bigger seeing stamps I never seen before until blog land. I love this blog already.

Gry-Heidi said...

My inspiration comes from all you talented "blogladies" out here, challenges, papers and stamps :) And not to forget, all the great feedback in my blog!

Hugs, Gry-Heidi

Congrats on the new blog...
Here's my Blog

Lisa M. said...

What inspires me? Hmm, I think everything does! I see paint chip colors at the store and think "oooh, nice color combo" or a dress or wallpaper--all kinds of inspiriation.

But the things that inspire me the most for cards have got to be sketches...I can get sooo many more ideas flowing if I have a layout to follow. Or a recipe. Those are really nice too.

Here is My Blog

Swedie said...

It is amazing how many different ways were used to interpret "a new beginning"! It's obvious everyone worked very hard on their ideas. I commented on all the blogs.

Most of my inspriation comes from scenery. I love to give my stamped images a place to live so I try to create a nice background for them. I do have a few posted on the earlier part of my blog and working on a new italian job now. I also get inspired from seeing my fellow cardmakers work.

Jerusha said...

I love seeing the work of other designers on blogs! That is my #1 source for inspiration! I also love to look at the latest magazines, when in doubt crack open an issue and there will be something to help me find my mojo!

what most inspires me the most..is blogging and entering challenges..i think if i didn't find blogging..i would of not made so many cards and tryed out different styles..and would not of meet such wounderful kind people in blog land.
thanks clare xx

Callie said...

Wow! Good question. My creativity springs from everywhere... sometimes all it takes is a new designed paper, an image, or a sketch. Other times it takes something my kids do or say. A challenge is a good way to get my mojo flowing! I just LOVE challenges... speaking of which I'm off to finish my "new beginings" project!

Hmmm, what inspires me to be creative? Well, two things ... 1. the incredibly talented crafty people whose blogs I spend far too much time stalking! and 2. challenge sites - I just can't get enough of them! I've only been crafting for just over 4 months, and I love visiting blogs and discovering new techniques. Challenges are just the greatest, as they give me a starting point. Hugs, Sem x

Sorry, forgot to leave my direct link: here it is!

Carisa said...

I get inspired by challenges and just hitting my favorite blogs.

After I've looked at some of the wonderfully creative things I see on blogs, I am just itching to make something myself.
