Spring Stamping Inspiration

Someone asked me the other day what provided the inspiration for new rubber stamp designs.   I couldn’t really come up with an answer at that time, but it’s been running through my head as I go about my daily life.  Then it hit me – “daily life” is what inspires me.   No – not dirty dishes, or email.   The GOOD stuff, the beauty and wonder that comes along every day is what inspires me.   So I’m going to spend a couple of days pointing out some things that have inspired some of Serendipity’s stamps.

Below is the view coming down my driveway this week.  And to think – this is not landscaping – just Mother Nature in all her glory!  Blooming redbuds only last a short time and the very best time to see them in on a cloudy day just after an April shower.

This view is just as pretty in January, though not as colorful.   But it was the inspiration for 1194H – Winter Fenceline, shown below.   All it takes is someone full of imagination, like DT member Anya Schrier, to turn January into April, as you can see in the card further down.
