Using Stamping web sites to Help you create!

When ever I start a card I always think how should I use a set? Well a few years ago I discovered a web site that has helped tremendously and I want to share it with you. It is called Splitcoaststampers.
The link above you takes you to the gallery of this site. All stampin'up sets are listed alphabetically. So say if you have the set "Lovely as a Tree" you would click sets K-N . This takes you to a gallery where you can look for set by scrolling down; when you find the set you want there are hundreds of cards made with any set! It is a great way to start designing or if in a pinch you can copy directly just remember if you decide to post this card it is proper etiquette to give credit to it’s author! Hope you enjoy this site as much as I do it has been a great inspiration for me!
