Finding Inspiration from the Dream Team

Share This!

I don’t know about you, but other stampers inspire me so much!  I’ve been perusing the Dream Team blogs and these cards really caught my eye.

maureen Maureen Merritt (queen of Clean and Simple) made this GORGEOUS floral card.  I’m loving the colors, the layered stamping on the flowers and the sweet little butterflies from our Beautiful World Stamp of Approval Collection!  See more about this card here.

Kristie-Day1 Squeezed & dies I miss your squeezes with a pitcher of lemonade?  Are you KIDDING me right now?  How perfect is this?  Check out Kristie Goulet’s blog for more deets on this fabulous card!

Sympathy Cards are a fact of life and they are so hard to make, but Heather North has us covered with this fabulous Emboss Resist Watercolored card using the Beautiful World Stamp Set.  The white embossed image with the soft watercolors has me weak at the knees!  Click here to visit Heather’s blog post.

May 002adjsmall This card had me hootin’ and hollerin’, it’s hysterical!  This dog being carried away…too darned cute. And that little goof dog reminds me of Eli.  lol!  More deets and a lot more greatness is found on Lisa Harrolle’s blog here!

Mixed-Media-Tropical-Thanks-001 Whoa people!  LOOK at these colors!  Incredible…Ingrid is an amazing artist.  If you haven’t checked out her blog yet, you are in for a real treat.  Get started HERE.

  Donut Stamps So donut stamps are all the rage right now and this card by Laurel Beard is absolutely darling!  Those little kiddos peeking out from the donuts?  Too CUTE!  Laurel prefers Krispy Kreme and I’m partial to Duck Donuts.  If you’ve ever been to Duck, NC or Raleigh, NC (not sure where else they are located!), you have GOT to try these donuts.  For reals.  They ROCK.

Anyways, I was excited about this card not only because of the donuts, but because the stamps are from Neat & Tangled.  FRIENDS.  Just wait until you see what Neat & Tangled has created for the July Stamp of Approval Collection.  Get ready to have your socks knocked off.

Click here to visit Laurel and give her some love.  She’s getting ready to move North and there’s no Krispy Kreme in sight.  :(  Pool Laurel.

1Ocean Animals KKS ACope That Allison Cope has some MAD coloring skills, y’all!  Check this out.  I have coloring envy.  And her card is making me dream of the beach….I’ll settle for the neighborhood pool, I suppose.  Be sure to head over to Allison’s blog, there’s tons more colored goodness over there.

How lucky are we to have these amazing designers in our lives???  I’m inspired by them every day, creatively and personally.  Thanks for letting me share a bit of them with you today!

I’ll be back tomorrow with a Father’s Day card for you :)  See you then!
