CardMaps3! Yeah! Delighted to find your work featured, Julie. Inspiration mojo produces many papercrafts, but visual learning makes the mojo fuel! Truth be known! Hands on pattern working trains the working imagination. Congrats, J!

I almost always use a sketch...but I love to add on a color combination challenge to get my creative juices flowing. I am constantly combing the internet for interesting sketches, color combos and technique ideas.

Great giveaway!
I get inspiration from blogs and card magazines, often combining ideas. I also try to use sketches.
Thanks, Julie.

Hi, Julie! I like challenges of all types to help guide my creating--sketches are key, but color and inspiration challenges help an awful lot, too. And I find magazines and catalogs (both everyday and papercrafting) to be quite inspirational when I'm creating, too!

Thanks for the chance to win!

Thank U 4 this opportunity.
Gosh, all depends what day it is; sometimes I'm inspired at times with sketches but mostly inspiration from others and at times I just use imagination.

I am just starting to use sketches and color combos to jump start my creativity. This challenges me to use the supplies I have on hand rather than trying to duplicate great ideas I see.

Kathi said...

Sketches are what inspire me the most, followed by color combos! Thanks for the chance to win this fabulous book!

I love to search paper craft magazines and books for inspiration. Also love to see what others are doing on their blog, it shows new products and trends......lots of ideas out there!

I love color challenges and when I am making a card, I try to think of the person who will receive it. Thanks for the chance to win CardMaps 3!

I have a whole 3-ring binder of sketches sitting right next to my crafting desk. Patterned papers spark me creatively, too, but not nearly as much as sketches! Thanks for the chance to win!

ReneeK said...

I think a Montanan should win this :) What inspires me...everything, nature's colors and shapes specifically. I don't get to stamp and make cards as much as I used to, but now that we are getting settled in our new home, I intend to make that change...this book would be a great help!

Shel said...

Cardmaps 3......that is AWESOME! Thanks so much for the chance to win.
Normally when I make a card, I just get an idea in my head and go with it....but then there are those times when I seem to have no creativity and nothing works....perhaps cardmaps is a solution!

WOW, would love to win Card Maps 3. I get most of my ideas from looking at cards from the many blogs I belong to. Such great designers and designs. I don't always have the same supplies that they use, but substitute with what I have. Plus I meet with friends and we put our heard together. Edna B.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Buncobuddy said...

I used to make cards using inspiration from the supplies I was using. Now, I just make cards with the recipient in mind. The person's personality is very important and prompts me to a path.

I get my ideas mostly from blogs ... but I've discovered that everything I see, I start imagining how I can work it into a card. Love sketches and seeing how others interpret them.
