There are many folks who give me stamping ideas and I think that is how this question was meant.

However, there are some folks who also inspire me to just keep plugging away and staying with stamping, even when my moods are low:

Julie HRR has, at times, provided just the right nudge to stay a stamper;

Lauren Meader (notimetostamp) inspires me to stamp simply because she juggles more than one person should have to and if she can find time, so can I.

Liz (redapron) inspires me to RAK others through her incredible goodness and Raking of my mom.

Pam (Airbornewife) inspires me because of her incredible support of the military and her unending optimism, friendship, and enthusiasm.

Mary (scrappersister) inspires me because she is so nice and good to me.

Asela Hopkins inspires me because she took the time to send me line by line (with pics) directions on how to watercolor one of her CHF images and then just sent me a boatload of FREE stamps!!!

Debbie Olson (debbiedesigns) sends me encouraging and funny emails once in a while after I've left scary/stalker type love notes on her blog as I admire her work so much.

Gina K because she has also sent me very encouraging notes.

I could go on and on and hope I haven't left out an obvious person. The bottom line is that it is the kindness of "strangers" that is most inspirational to me.

Oh WOW Jen, thanks!

I have been inspired by so many -- this site is crammed with such amazing talent - but the stampers who have been my first and foremost inspiration are leslierich and SweetMissDaisy.

All Dirty Dozen gals--past and present. There's a reason why they were chosen!!!

Honestly, though, it's the sum of the parts. It's everyone's little contributions here and there that make this such an amazing place.

I'm *such* a people person and LUV getting to know the person behind the card. So for those of you who hesitate to share stories about yourselves and your fam thinking no one cares, please do!

I can't believe anybody would say me! What a HUGE, HUGE compliment, thank you SO much! I almost fell outta my chair when I read that.

Before I saw this post, about an hour ago, I was looking at your blog and admiring your beautiful work. I especially love your layouts, I'll definitely be case-ing!

I would have to say notimetostamp, mothermark, and papermoon04! Sharon, Cindy, and Shelly have always had the most kind and encouraging comments about my work- from my very first uploads to present day! They are also always so happy to answer my goofy questions. And they all have incredible work, I am always looking forward to seeing what they have each come up with!

OMG, where do I start. Well number one with me is CINDY HAFFNER.
Then I have to go with Sharon Johnson, Michelle Zindorf, Lauraly, Jen 70, Kittie 747, Jeanne S, Bad Sherry. How many did you want, I can go on. OK love them all. You girls are my inspirations.

that's exactly my thoughts! There are so many talented people on SCS!!

I guess the ones that have inspired me to start a gallery here and work on my artform (as limited as it may be IMO) would be: notimetostamp, Kittie747, JeanneS, BadSherry, WAXYO, ked. These are just a few I can think of, but they are the ones that have taught me to really look. I remember just staring at cards from each one of these ladies and trying to figure out just *how did they do that?*.

Again, though, there are so many talented people out here!

I have many but the two that really stand out are:

Mothermark (Cindy)....

Not only is she a very talented stamper, she has a heart full of love and compassion. She is always there to help, offer encouragement, and spread love to others. I'm always touched when I read of her helping others. Yup, she's my inspiration!

mytime (Lauren)...

Many of us have challenges in life we have to overcome and Lauren is no exception. She has such a positive attitude and is such high energy, it's refreshing to hear her talk about different experiences. She is also very talented and really stretches her imagination to make really creative things. Yup, another inspiration of mine.

Really, all of you inspire me in one way or another. It's such a blessing to be a part of SCS!

Hugs!

Lisa.....you just put a smile on my face. Nothing makes me happier than knowing I may encourage someone to realize their own creative potential. Thank you for such a wonderful compliment.

There are so many people on this site that inspire me regularly but the one I believe that has influenced and inspired me most to work with watercolor technique is SweetMissDaisy (Anna Wight). There is another person that inspires me regularly and that is BadSherry (she really ain't so bad). She encourages me to step out of my "box" and to try new things.

Thanks to those that mentioned me!!!

Golly. I'm not sure I could even list everyone on here that inspires me. That list would be huge. I think I've taken a little from every card I've seen along the way.

Hmm who inspires me?

You all do!! I think anyone who takes the time to share their work, techniques and passions is amazing. I have learned so much from each person whose card I clicked on in the gallery and also by the spirit and fellowship on the boards.

However, I do want to share the names of the people whose blogs I stalk EVERYDAY without fail. I am the silent lurker usually and I want to step out and thank the following (and hopefully more people will appreciate these amazing blogs).

Julia Stainton at Belle Papier. She is constantly trying new techniques and is always recommending some product I NEED to have . Her work is beautiful!

Sherrie from Card Creme has really inspired me to try mass producing my cards and perhaps one day I will get the nerve to try and sell some too!

BadSherry is always Walkin on the Bad Side and her blog is always full of great stories about her life as well as her amazing creations.

Amy Rysavy from Prairie Paper & Ink seems like the sweetest woman. It was her cards that made me finally USE my Bellas!!

and last but definately not least Julie Ebersole at Paper Trufflez. The fantastic lady cracks me up! The way she writes makes me giggle and she makes her beautiful creations seem achievable to even a beginner like me.

Thanks to everyone who makes this site what it is!!!

WOW where do you start? I took a look at my favorites to see who I have in there and there are sooo many people that have inspired me. Especially Toy, Markie's Mom, WAXYO, Mothermark, 4hounds, they especially make me wish I was home stamping at times instead of lurking SCS at work!!!

The following people, just to name a few, cause uncontrollable drooling when I am gazing at their works of art;

Cindy Haffner, Markie's Mom, Toy, MyTime, Nitestamper, BadSherry, WAXYO, Notimetostamp, CharmWarm, Amy Westerman, TayloredExpressions, debbiedesigns, FlaxyChick, 11Valerie11.............. I could go on and on.

No wonder I never get any stamping done! I spend way too much time looking at everyone's beautiful creations. This website is choked full of talented people!

Today, I would have to say the site in general inspires me. Don't you think everyone who uploads has something to offer to the rest of us.(from the big names to the first time uploader)? When I first started though, Toy, Knightrone, Artystamper and Kokirose were some of the galleries I frequented.

For me, I would add Carole Richardson, Leslie Rich, Dee Jackson and Asela Hopkins to the names above. Sometimes I'm so busy being inspired I can't find the time to stamp!

I love all the "Big Names" that everyone mentioned, but I read most of their blogs and not so much look for their galleries. So I'm going to name a stamper who does not have a blog so I can ONLY see her stuff in her gallery. I get really excited when I see TJStamper has new gallery posts. She uses a lot of pink, which I love, and one layer cards, which I love.

Later I'm going to go look up everyone else mentioned here, what a fun thread.

I love to look through the daily gallery posts and am always inspired by what I see so I would have to say everyone! There are a few who have jumped out at me....
#1artist4highhopes - what an amazing artist! And a super lady!
Kittie747 - she is so sweet and helpful. I have learned TONS from her!
Jacksonbelle - the one and only time I have totally CASED a card for a workshop was this one of hers. She so kindly allows me to stalk her.
Shel9999 - another super nice lady who blows me away with her talent!
JuliaS - Ditto
Trudee, Mothermark, markie's mom, jpmayo, starofmay, DawnL and I could go on and on!!

Oh, and all the past and present dirty girls! Without exception, each and every one of them can consider themselves named here.

There are so many talented and beautiful stampers that I became a great fan of here on SCS, and then followed them into the wonderful world of blogging. But on a multi-daily basis I visit the blogs of Lauraly (Laurie), notimetostamp (Sharon), leslierich (Leslie Miller), and Trudee.

They each have their own button on my Firefox toolbar, so their inspiration is only a click away!

To them and everyone mentioned in this thread, plus so many more of you, thank you for so generously sharing your creativity. I have learned so much from all of you.

Thank you!

My list of faves has grown tremendously since I started blurfing! But Debbie Olson (debbiedesigns) and Leslie Miller (leslierich) are probably my top two!

I would ditto all the fine ladies that have already been mentioned and add Sweet Miss Daisy, Kim Van De Riet, princessink, and 11Valerie11. Because of these women and the others that have already been mentioned, I've been stretched and my style has drastically changed. Thanks to all of you. You're such an inspiration.

I would have to say michelle fischer and kristina werner (starofmay) are the two I find myself drawn to the most. Their work is so lovely!
