UPDATE: Learn to make your own Inspiration Cards with my online class! Click here for all the details!
I have had a love of inspiration cards for many years. The first ones I ever saw where by SARK. They were so colorful and whimsical that I wanted to just sit and slowly go through each one. Soon after that experience, I was introduced to Cheryl Richardson and her Grace cards. Although the artwork on those cards is beautiful, it was the messages that drew me in. I own two decks by Cheryl and reach for them often for inspiration.
Creating the cards is all about playing with my art supplies and leftover bits on my studio table. Sometimes I start with gesso and paint…sometimes I glue paper down as a base. No thinking…just creating.
I’m using a set of playing cards I received as a wedding favor from a couple close to my heart. I collected phrases (and continue to collect them), keeping them on bits of paper in a jar to pull out each week when I create the next card. I wanted the messages for the inspiration card deck to be spontaneous because most of the time I need to hear the message too!
I post that week’s card on Instagram and Facebook each Friday (sometimes Saturday!) to give my followers a little thought for the weekend. My hope is that the message you need to hear finds you when you need it most.
