I personally LOVE card sketches – do you? I love having a template I can use as is, turn it sideways, flip it, even go completely upside down and get new and additional design ideas from one layout.

So when I was planning out Stamping Family I knew that card sketches would play a big role in how I inspired other stampers to get out their stuff and USE it to create. Every week we offer three different Inspirations with card sketches being one of them. And members LOVE them! A Card Sketch Inspiration is posted every week and members get to use it as their jumping off point for their own creations and, if they like, can share in the thread or in their very own gallery (every member gets their own!) or both.

I want to share the Stamping Family Sketch Inspiration from a couple of weeks ago so you can play along! This one was so much fun the first time we revisited it for all the new members who have been joining the fun. So here's your chance, too!  Take a look:


Card Sketches

The fun think about using card sketches is that everyone sees the elements differently. For instance, those three little dots on the right were originally inspired by brads but we had a card creation with three tiny bows in a row – SO cute! And the scalloped square shape? Well, another clever member turned that into layered starbursts. This is why I LOVE card sketches – you just never know what someone will do with it!

I would LOVE to see your creations using this Stamping Family Sketch Inspiration so feel free to share your projects and perhaps we can even have a share at the end of the month! And in the meantime, if this post has whetted your appetite, come join us! Membership is just under $10 a month, signing up is SUPER easy, we have TONS going on and the only thing missing from Stamping Family is YOU!  And meanwhile, there are well over 120 card sketches waiting for you to use them as your own inspiration!
