Lacking inspiration for card making?

Hey, friends!  I hope you’ve had a wonderful week!  My littles are out of school for two weeks -it’s that time again!  They have spent the week at gymnastics camp and have had an absolute ball.  I’m sad that this is the last day..for them, AND me!

We will have a great week next week, but this week  I’ve been working hard on some things coming up, including the 300th Video Celebration that begins on Monday at StampNation.

If you haven’t joined yet, now is the perfect time!  Some questions about StampNation that I’ve gotten lately:

Q: I don’t live in the US.  Can I still join?

A: ABSOLUTELY!  We have members from all over the world including the Phillipines, Norway, Malaysia, Japan and 13 other countries…17 in all!

Q: Can I join for just one month?

A: You can!  Choose the monthly option and cancel at anytime…however, you will find that SN is an amazing resource and community and you will probably stay!  We hope you will!

Today’s card features the sweet little cupcake from the Patterned Occasions Stamp Set and the Oh, Hello Stamp Set which I used to stamp on the Label Framelit shape, the Pumpkin Pie circle punch and the Heart Punch.

Stampin’ Up Supplies:

  • Patterned Occasions and Oh Hello Stamp Sets
  • Cardstock:  Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquiose, Whisper White, Real Red
  • Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquiose, Whisper White, Real Red
  • Accessories:  1-3/8″ Circle Punch, 1-3/4″ Circle Punch, Label Framelit, Floral District DSP, 1/8″ Tafetta Ribbon, Fancy Fan Embossing Folder, Small Heart Punch, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, 2 Way Glue Pen, Dimensionals, Rhinestones

I think I’m in a GREETING rut.  I’ve been stamping a lot lately and have been staring at my stamps kinda puzzled as to which one to use.

Maybe I need to put in a nice order to refresh my stash.  If you follow me on Facebook, you know I haven’t just been in a rut for greetings, but my mojo was MIA for quite a while this week.  I’m happy to say Mojo has returned.

There has been a lot of talk on SN this week about just that…leave me a comment here and let me know what YOU do when you are lacking inspiration for card making?  I would love to know!
