What great blog candy! Hmmm...who has inspired me...that's a tough one. I think I'd have to say Julee @ Poetic Artistry. She always has that little extra something to make her projects awesome, and I love that.

barb hendrickson said...

I would have to say there is a long list of people who have been inspirational to me, but I think the cumulative artistic ability that exudes out of Splitcoast Stamper would be my choice. Your blog was a new find for me and you happen to be number 1 on my task bar!

My friend Phyllis has been very inspiring for me. She is always very encouraging and cracks me up too!

Sheri said...

There are so many great stampers who blog that have inspired me, but the one person who got me started and keeps me going is my SU demo. She taught me the very basics of card design and is always encouraging and supportive of my efforts. Her name is Lynne Higerd and she is awesome!!

Debbie/StudioBeeCreations said...

Honestly, my kindred spirit friend...this is difficult...as you well know there are soooo many TERRIFIC, AWESOME stampers out there...in blogger-land,SCS, SU demos, etc.....I would HAVE to choose :...drum roll.........YOU!!!...Seriously, you AMAZE me with your creations...combinations....and your DESCRIPTIONS are the BOMB!..The fact that you are at 10K hits, speaks for itself!.....Thanks for the chance to win YUMMY candy...please visit me soon!!!

janet d. said...

My mother was always doing something creative when I was young. I guess she is my inspiration. Thanks for sharing your talent with us!

Kheila said...

I too get so much from SCS and when I am in a slump, like right now, I gallery gaze on SCS. One of my very first inspirations from there was Emilymomof3sons who I have cased many times. I have only recently found your blog and really njoy your creations...thank you. Thank you so much for the chance to win this fabulous blog candy that you are offering....I'd absolutely LOVE to win!!

Phyllis W. said...

Great Candy!! I would have to say that all of you bloggers would be my inspiration. You always something amazing up for us to see. Thanks for all your hard work...

Congratulations! You deserve it. You have a great blog. And this is where I get my inspiration, from all the great bloggers and from all the amazing talent at SCS.

tmjohn said...

Inspiration.. as many have already said here SCS has so many creative people who always have some new and wonderful idea. I also love looking at blogs such as yours where you not only provide creative ideas, but wonderful comments. Congrats on the # of hits!

Wife2TJ said...

Wonderful blog candy. I don't really get my source of inspiration from just one place. I get a lot of it from SCS. I also get alot of it from other bloggers. It's amazing all the talent we have out there! Thanks for sharing this with us and Congratulations! -Samantha

Lorie said...

You are probably going to think I am weird but there isn't any one person that has been a major inspiration creatively. I enjoy lots of people's work (which is evident by my large blog reader list!) and you'll see that influence come through sometimes.

Fun blog and great candy! Thanks for offering!

Colleen said...

Congrats on the success of your blog!

I would say it's been Ali Edwards and her attitude of "embracing imperfection" that has inspired me. I'm able to just play a bit more and let go of some of the perfectionism I was striving for in my cards/layouts!

What wonderful blog candy too by the way!

Cathy said...

Congrat on 10K! Pick ME...I love this sweet candy you are sharing with your readers. I just love your blog. My inspiration comes from SCS and blogland! It amazes me how everyone finds time to do reality stuff, stamp creative and talented artwork, and then have the time post their artwork and remember all the supplies they used. So my answer is HATS OF TO YOU ALL!
Thanks for a chance.

Nancy said...

One of my biggest sources of inspiration is WAXYO on SCS. I'm excited to see your blog too - CONGRATS on the # of hits!

amber b said...

Hi Mercy! I recently found your blog and I love it!

My inspiration truly comes from God and His wonderful creations. When I drive and see the beautiful autumn colors or the majesty of His mountains I get inspired to be creative!

Keep up the good work!

ronee said...

Inspiration for me comes from everywhere. I blog hop, I flip through CK magazines, and now I work at a LSS and see everyone come through with their own ideas! Sometimes, I just see something in my mind and go from there! I love your blog though! You have great ideas and great color use! Keep inspiring me!!!

AnnL said...

I just found your blog yesterday and favorited it immediately. What talent! I would have to say that my inspiration comes from all of these very talented ladies out in bloggerland...Beate, Charmaine I., Angie Z, Dawn G, Corinne. What talented, talented ladies. I am looking forward to reading your blog daily. What beautiful cards!

Jan Hunnicutt said...

Nice blog candy! I just discovered your blog and linked here from Beate's. You should be added to the list of people who inspire me! Your work is beautiful!

Juliann said...

I was trying to think of just one person who inspires me...I can't think of just one. Beautiful, creative things inspire me. I am so glad to have the internet because I get to travel around the world and get inspired!

Lena Altman said...

Congrats on 10K !! There are many people who inspire me - I'm newish to stamping so still trying to find "my style"... I do love vintage to modern -- anything that captures my interest. One person who really inspires me is Trudee http://trudee.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/
She has amazing talent and has an eye for design and color. She changes it up too - she doesn't have one style. But she's dangerous - she's an enabler!!

ink'n'rubba said...

There have been many who have inspired me over the years and taught me such a lot. I would echo others in saying that SCS is an encyclopedia of craft inspriation, but also the many blogs I've found on my crafty journey. Thank you every one!

scfranson said...

You have a great blog. My inspiration comes from many different places, mostly blogs. The work you gals do is amazing.

Scrapbook Mama said...

Well for it has to be Allison for Stampinwhenican.blogspot.com That is where I posted my first card ever for a contest she was holding I wasn't expecting to win but she is so wonderful and so friendly and funny I had to give it a try and she then emailed me back w/such kind words!
I love her blog and she has all these wonderful things to share w/all of us! It makes me really want to learn the stamping world! :)

lois lane said...

I get a lot of my inspiration from SCS also. But also, from the many bloggers out there who are so talented. Thank you all for sharing. BTW, love the song on your blog! :)

Momsnack said...

I used to find inspiration from magazines, but since I found SCS and reading blogs, I'm not renewing subscriptions - there are so many talented people out there!

Jackie (strappystamper) said...

Congrats, Mercy, on 10,ooo hits! Wow...I'd have to say my inspiration does not come from only one or two people. I have met so many amazing stampers through SCS and I gain inspiration from them all, you being one of them!

Rita said...

Congrats on hitting 10K!!! I get my inspiration from a lot of the blogs I visit on a daily basis, the two people that inspired me to start my own blog, was Dawn Griffith & Jen Young & I thank them for getting me inspired enough to try it out...I must say that I'm luvin it every day!!! Thanks for the chance at some awesome blog candy!

Darlene said...

I just found your blog today - love it. I get most of my inspiration from SCS and from a few blogs which I visit and receive updates from regularly and then some from my SU distributor.
Thanks for the chance to win this.

canben said...

Creative inspiration? No one person really. My style is SO mish mash! LOL

CAKVD said...

Hello! Lovely candy!! I think that Stampin Up has had a huge influence on my creativity! I love their idea books and all the techniques I can do with their stamps. Thanks!
Cheryl KVD

Anne said...

Congrats!! I would have to say Beate- love the cards!!!

LeAnne said...

Mercy, your blog is wonderful! I can think of many stampers whose work I admire, but Laurie Schmidlin at http://justgivemestamps.typepad.com/ really has a style that I love. Her work is clean & crisp and she has a way of combining paper & stamps that always seems fresh! But she's just one of many!

Sarah D said...

my mother she has always been a crafty person and what mommy dose I always seem to find myself elbow deep in!!!!

congrats on 10K

Ghazal(ghazal_31005@yahoo.com) said...

As others said there are lots of inspirational peoples blogging, so it's hard to choose.
I would choose Debbie Olson, because I love every card she makes. Her color combos, sketches, coloring and everything is fabulous.
Congrats on 10K hits, you're doing great.

MJ said...

It is hard to pick one source of inspiration for me. On different days different things can inspire me. Your blog candy is awesome and I would love to win. By the way I truly love your blog and love that we both have the same (almost) playlist on our blog. Interesting!

Trish D said...

Congrats on hitting this milestone! It's so hard for me to pick one inspirational person - I guess I'd have to say viewing the Dirty Dozen galleries at Splitcoast continually inspires me. I've learned a lot of techniques, plus learned a lot about the use of color, embellishments, layout, etc.

kande913 said...

I just love Candy!!! LOL I love Nichole Heady... With her great stamp company, and her abilities to teach with her tutorials, I think she is an inspiration to any woman. I look at her blog daily hoping she has something new and great to teach us all.--Esther

Linda said...

Chris, my Stampin Up demonstrator, has been my inspiration---given me many ideas. Her workshops are a major therapy session for me. I also have received tons of inspiration from all of the blogs.

Terria said...

I look and explore many blogs each day but I would have to say I get most of my inspiration from the Garden on two peas in a bucket. I create for hours from that very site.

Gabby said...

I just discovered your blog and I must say that your work is amazing. I will be visiting a lot more often! :) As far as inpiration. I find it in a variety of places including blogs, magazine, friends and above all nature. I love to see new ideas and techniques. thank you for being so generous!

Reality Show Reject said...

congrats on the hits. I'm not sure who gives the most inspirations on stamping. I just love going through the galleries to see all of everyone's ideas. Thanks for the chance to win!

Congrats, I just found your blog and added you to my blog roll.
I would have to say i get alot of inspiration from SCS gallery and from many blogs that I visit.

Nettystamps said...

I think I would have to say that my late grandmother had the biggest effect on me inspirationally. She did ALL kinds of crafting...and was alwsys willing to teach me whatever I expressed an interest in. In fact she was the one who taught me to sew and crochet...my very first ventures into crafting...

Just found your blog and I'm in awe of your talent. Thank you so much for sharing and others inspiration.

I just found your blog this past week. My 18 year old was scrapbooking yesterday near the computer and I pulled up your blog so we could listen your your music. I love your blog. I check out Beate's blog every day for inspiration and a smile. I will be checking yours also from now on. Have a great day,
Retta

Jan Scholl said...

I have several people who inspire me including the ladies at Jane's and the fellow stampers at Stacey's-they never tell you anything is stupid. But sometimes you need to be told something looks bad-so that is my Niece Kayla. She is 10 and will tell me to change or add a bit here and there. and all the really screwy ones-she gets to keep.

Amy said...

What yummy paper! I am inspired by so many it is hard to pick just one. I have a list of folks on my blog that inspire me, but my inspiration is not limited to those. You all inspire me!

Deb said...

I get most of my inspiration from all gals who post on SCS. Got to your blog from Beate. Will be signing up to get your updates. Awesome work!

Cheryl said...

I just found my way here this morning from a card of yours posted on the Fresh & Fun blog and I am enchanted with your site here. Congratualtions on your milestone and I don't think it'll be all that long till you reach your next one. My inspriation comes from a compilation of too many individuals to list - some use the colors I love, others use the images I love, still others use the techniques, textures, sketches, embellishments. Now to go see where/if I can subscribe to this blog!

Anonymous said...

I find my inspiration from so many sources but especially splitcoast and now all the bloggers that I have subscribed to. Your site is awesome - my first visit here - thanks to the card you made for Beate - love the site!!

Congrat's!! :) Yummy candy! I find a lot of blogs inspiring, and honestly couldn't peg it to just one person... :) Too many wonderfully talented people out there!!

Tanja said...

I get so much inspiration from all you bloggers! My favorite at the moment is Nichole Heady. She has such a clean style that I love! I can never create anything close to what she does, and MUST have the new sets when they come out.
Congratulations on your 10K hits! I have about 50 at the moment and at least 25 of those are me! You should be very proud. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work

Alison Molumby said...

I have to agree that the wonderfully talented folks at Splitcoaststampers have influenced me a lot. I also love to follow Ali Edwards and Elsie Flanigan. Thanks for the candy op!

Denise said...

Everyone on SCS as ben an inspiration to me! I couldn't possibly pick just one! TFS!

Heather F said...

Mercy, I just stumbled on your blog thanks to the thank you card you sent to Beate, but you're already inspiring me. My mother is my true inspiration in crafting, though. Ever since I was a young girl, she has brought out the creativity in me! Congrats on your hits!

nancy morgan said...

Oh how fun! It's funny you should ask, I've just been thinking about the person who got me stamping and plan to send her a card this week. Her name is Lyn and she's awesome! Invited me to my first Stamping party then kept encouraging me and showing me new ideas...she's a gem!

Thanks for the chance at great blog candy...pick me, pick me, pick me (l0l)!!

Anonymous said...

HEY MERCY IT'S JAN. I LOVED THOSE PAPERS. I THOUGH YOUR LITTLE CARD WITH THE ORANGE AND TEAL WAS JUST SCRUMPTIOUS AND I REALLY LIKED THE ONE DONE WITH THE WANTED STAMP SET. HAD A GREAT TIME SATURDAY - CAN'T WAIT TO DO IT AGAIN!

Keva said...

My biggest inspiration comes from Debbie Olson. her blog is fabulous and she is an all around great person. She has inspired me to buy (and use!) so many things from paper to tools. Her work is clean and lovely.

Melissa Caufield said...

My creativity is inspired by Laurie Schmidlin and her site "Just give me stamps". I go to her site several times a day because the emails that are sent out letting you know of new uploads are several hours and sometimes a day behind her actual post. So, I visit the site frequently to view any new posts. Her style so closely matches mine and what is dear to my "eye" in design that I love to see her new and fresh work. Also, I admire her confidence and that she is able to post her designs online without hesitation. Even though I like my work most of the time, my fear is that others won't like it. She is a great inspiration to many!

Maria said...

Great giveaway!
I really get my inspiration from so many people. But I have to say, that I often see things when I'm out that inspire me. I just picked up a napkin from a coffee place because I love the colors. I'm going to try it out today for my Christmas cards.

Thanks -- Maria

Tejal said...

It has got to be Maria at cardinspired.blogspot.com. She is the most fabulous stamper. She doesn't follow the trends..she creates her own...She's the one who inspired me to make such great cards..

I get my inspiration from so many places. I love to blog hop on a daily basis! But I must credit my bff, Diane for getting me into stamping and card making. If it wasn't for her inspiration and encouragement i would never have gotten started in this wonderful hobby!

Angel Wilde said...

I get a lot of inspiration from girls like my friend Lori Craig and also Rose Ann Reynolds, Beate, and Julia Stainton.... I used to be all over SCS but blogging gives me a lot more inspiration these days!

My friend Lynn got me started! She makes beautiful cards to sell at craft fairs. After one of my surgeries I called her to buy some Thank You cards to send to everyone that sent me flowers & gifts. She refused to sell me any, saying she was going to teach me how to make my own. She taught me all of her techniques and let me use all of her supplies. I love paper crafts so much, that she was truly sent to me as a gift from God to help me get thru a difficult time:) Now most of my inspiration comes from blogs and SCS.

Lisa Beeman said...

SCS definately got me started as far as inspiration goes, but now I get a lot of inspiration from blogs (like yours!) :) Congratulations, and keep it up cuz YOU are probably an inspiration to many people!

Thanks!

Natalie said...

ooh! This is a tough one! There is so much incredible talent out there that has inspired me. But I'd have to say my friend Amie (who is an amazing scrapper) was really the one to inspire me to get going. Literally, she's laid on the pressure to get me into gear, get me out to crops and get scrappin'. I'd probably never have taken that time away from my family for myself if it wasn't for her.

Dawn Marie said...

My Stampin Up Demo LYNN is my inspiration. She is so crafty and I love going to her camps!!! Thanks
Dawn

Cheri said...

Julie at Paper Pleasing Ideas is inspiring to me. She shows how to get GREAT looking cards without having to invest in the latest, most expensive tools. She does wonderful work and great tutorials!

Tammy-SCS-feathers&ink said...

Your cards are so elegant. The orange and blue is absolutely stunning! I just love your style.
You asked who inspires us creatively. For me it is each person that I create for. I love to give and create hand made gifts. I give gifts for my birthday rather than receive them. (Which is actually Friday btw! LOL) I have created a Christmas card for my SU group. And I am creating ornaments for my Bible Study group. I think of the receiver and what would bring them joy. So each recipient of my creativity is my inspiration for every creation I make.

Anonymous said...

Hi,
I believe that each and every person that posts their beautiful artwork is an inspiration to me because I know I am not alone in my love for creating. Each post is a piece of that person's spirit and I am blessed that it is shared with me.
Thanks Mercy for a beautiful blog page and for letting me participate.

Hi Mercy! Congratulations on 10,000!!! WOW!!!

Thank you for offering a chance to win that terrfic prize package!

You asked who inspires us. I can't name just one, so I will share several.

One is Beate Johns. I found your blog because she posted your RAK and a link to your page. I love her designs and her willingness to share. Check out her list of blogs she likes to visit :)

Just a few of my other "mentors" are Sharon Harnist, Debbie Olson, Lynda Benden, Ellen Hutson, Nicole Heady, Wanda Pettijohn. I could go on and on and on...:)

Linda Deline said...

Congratulations on 10K! Quite an achievement. For me, my inspiration comes from Kim Reid at

She's the one who got me into stamping and her cards and blog are amazing. If you get to this post, check her blog out... I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I do. God bless. Linda Deline

Wow, I just love looking at your creations!

Who has inspired me? I'd have to say my Mom and my Husband, they both are so encouraging, and my husband is so great to support my hobby or "obsession" as he teasinly calls it. I do love this hobby!

Great blog candy, btw! Thanks for the opportunity to get some fun stuff!!

Congrats on the hits! You have fabulous creations so it isn't too surprising you have hit 10K!

I am inspired by SCS & so many of the posters there that I can't even name them all! It is such an amazing resource/site!

Cheryl said...

I can't possibly just name one person who has been my inspiration. I have so many that I don't have time to mention them. First is my friend, Pat, who started me on the stamping journey. Then on to splitcoast where I have met up with the talents of Beate, Lynn in St. Louis, Dawn, Jen (from Hawaii), Gina K, and all the other designers. And how could I ever forget Erika. I'm sorry that I wrote a book. I just kept coming up with more and more and there are still lots of others. Thank you and I love your work. I will add you to my inspiration too.

Mary Campbell said...

My greatest source of inspiration is my husband. He tells me I can do anything I want to do. He loves everything I create and makes a big deal out of them. He loves my cards and even helps me with my layouts and designs. If he thinks a card needs something more he tells me what and where to improve my cards. He sends me to the big city twice a year to shop the big scrapbook stores. I have nothing close to home. He tells me to enjoy myself and get what I want. He has made my life a joy for 32 years and he still inspires me to do great things.

What great blog candy! I find inspiration from so many but I really am drawn to watercolored images so I think I'll go with Anna Wight (SweetMissDaisy).

Now since I just found your blog I'm off to read more about it! I love what I've seen so far!

Karinn said...

I have been checking back to your blog from time to time, and I love your work! I really love the colors you used for your 11/9/07 post for the Many Thanks cards, wow! I have to borrow that color scheme for my next card, so sharp when used together. I'm new to stamping (my mom, 2,000 miles away, got me started with a few stamps she sent me and I'm hooked!) and am so glad to have found your blog and from it, SCS. So many great artists there to inspire me and to learn as I go. Thanks so much and have a great week.

Congrats on all the hits, that's great. I have to say I have been inspired by so many women. Some I know, some I only know through the net. Other's are just their blogs. There is amazing talent out there, and I only wish I could compare. Thanks for the great blog candy.

I followed the trail from your card on SCS. You have a great blog. I get several blogs in my inbox each day and really enjoy them.

I have been stamping only since April this year and really enjoy SCS-so glad I found the site-have learned so much. One person, Rox, has really helped me. She has such good sketches on SCS and always gives very good recipes so it easy to know what you need to do to make the cards. TFS

You deserve all the hits. Your blog is great! And what a generous blog give-away!

My inspiration...wow, that is a tough one. I think I have more than one inspiration. But I will go with the person who started it all. My past CTMH upline Nancy Brown. If it wasn't for her, I never would have started on the path to stamping. It's been a great ride so far and I can't wait to see where this path continues to take me. Thanks Nancy!

Wow...what fun candy. I need some fun to arrive in my mail box!

I am inspired by those stampers who cheer others on...always looking for what is good about a card/project. It might just be a color combo or cute image. But it's nice to be noticed!
