What to do when the Stamping Mojo is Missing!

Published by under cards,stamping techniques

Ok, so you’ve managed to find some peace and quiet (yes, a feat in itself), your inks and stamps are all set to go, and you are ready for inspiration to strike…. but…. nothing happens! Your stamping mojo has disappeared! What do you do next?

Well, the answer is simple and it’s something I’ve done many times,¬†because my stamping mojo frequently disappears, let me tell you! I grab my Stampin’ Up! Idea Book & Catalogue and flick through it until I see a design that catches my eye. Force yourself to NOT look at the stamp sets (yes, I know it’s hard… but you can do it ūüôā ) Just look at the layouts. Don’t worry if you don’t have the same stamp set, or the same coloured cardstock, or rub ons, or the right ribbon. Trust me, that’s not important for this exercise (and you can always order them from me later LOL¬† *big grin*).

Now, make up the card by swapping the stamps and supplies¬†for what you have available but try to follow the card design/layout as best you can. It’s heaps of fun, and saves you having to ‘think’. It’s just like following a recipe. Within no time at all, you’ll have created something new and¬†your stamping mojo will be back!

Now, just for fun… who can tell me which page I CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) these cards from? (Check the current Australian¬†Idea Book & Catalogue). Leave a comment when you’ve worked out which page.¬†

 

 

Your turn to have a go! Email me a card that you CASEd/adapted from the IB&C and let me work out where the inspiration came from.

Tomorrow is Australia Day, but I’ll be back on Tuesday to¬†announce an exciting venture for papercraft lovers in the Creswick & District area, to help get you stamping, scrapping & creating,¬†and to enjoy some ‘me time’.

Till then, happy stamping!
