More "inspired by" cards

Edit- I am so excited, happy, and touched!  This card was selected as a Top Five on Hope Stamps Eternal.:)

I love when I have extra paper and supplies sitting out and inspiration hits! I made some cards yesterday and I almost never have a clean work area. Bits and pieces ended up sitting next to each other and they looked so pretty I came up with a "cherry" of an idea (I know, I know. I pushed it too much with the cherry thing huh. ;).

These are the cards I made with leftovers after making yesterday's cards. Hope Stamps Eternal had the cutest cupcakes for their cupcake challenge. The button candy on top of the cupcakes is so cute! Your Next Stamp has a spring themed challenge so I'm claiming spring colors since cherries are really a summer fruit. ;)
The paper is Bo Bunny Ella and some Bo Bunny Poppy Dot. The buttons and cherry stamp are from Papertrey. I stamped the cherry stems with Distress Ink peeled paint The tag is a 2" office label tag and the ribbon is leftover from some cookies I got in a beautiful bag (love that "free" ribbon!).

Where do you get your inspiration? Magazines, blogs, sketches, catalogs? I'd love to hear when, where, how inspiration struck and what you were able to create!


  1. YUM!!! I Love Cherries and these pink ones are Delish!!! Thanks for playing along with the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge!

  2. These are sooo cute.
    I find inspiration every where. I mostly get my ideas before I fall asleep.

  3. These are so fun Moriah! Anything with buttons and tags has my vote right away :) I find inspiration in the everyday, sometimes it's something in my own daily path, or sometimes a print ad, the tag on a purchase, or even a catalog.

  4. These are SWEET! I love them! I have resisted getting that set....then I will have to buy MORE buttons! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving such sweet comments! I do have a question for you....I love the font that is used for your post titles, and I just saw someone else using that as well. You have blogger, so how do you get that COOL font? Inquiring minds want to know!
    LeAnne :D
