Polka Dot Pieces

It is time to play with some challenges again and Polka Dot Pieces was just the stamp set to use for this super-cute sketch!  You can see the sketch at Mojo Monday and play along.  This card really pops with the great new DSP, Retro Fresh, in the Celebrate the Everyday catalog!  I love vivid colors and this paper has lots from which to choose.

I chose this stamp set after studying the sketch.  How do you choose what you are going to use?  This has been my biggest learning curve in stamping.  As a scrapbooker, you always start with your photos.  I have had to learn to use other elements to inspire me with stamping.  Sometimes it is the stamp set that I just have to use, and sometimes it is the paper that dictates which stamp set to use.  I have my ebbs and flows with inspiration and it always amazes me to see the beautiful projects from other stampers.  Do you have a preference or just jump in and see what you create?
