Most of the time that I make a card it is because I am dying to make something that was inspired by someone else. Unless I have that inspiration, I get overwhelmed on where to start. Other times it is just committing to using something I have. However, I think I found another way to get my cards kick started.
Today, I received a box from Hero Arts with a few things. When I opened my package I decided that I needed to write sticky notes on the reason why I bought those stamps. I put the note inside the packaging so it would not get lost.
The notes weren't about card ideas, but a little simpler. For example, I bought the Blizzard Bold Prints and the note was: use with glittery blue embossing powder. So when I found a window to stamp, I just picked up this stamp and just made the background like the sticky note said. Then I knew it needed a snowy ground. From there, it was easy to decide theme and the stamps to coordinate.
Here is the card that was inspired by a sticky note.
I think from now on I will start printing my email confirmations and making notes on why I purchased those items and how I plan to use them. Once the supplies arrives, I can write sticky notes to put on them.
Hope you like the video and don't forget to give it a thumbs up and share.
