Spring Card

Hi, crafters!
I am trying so hard to get back into crafting now that my area is set up. 
I want to craft, but I am so.... what's the word..... missing my mojo.

I unpacked a lot of Stampin' Up stamps and Close To My Heart stamps along with papers and ink from both companies. I would love to do more stamping these days along with my die cuts and paper piecing, but I feel lost and not sure where to start.

So I did some Googling for CAS stamped cards and found this idea. I love the spot of pattern paper. That's something else I want to do more of - just using a spot of pattern paper instead of covering my cards with it.  Not because one way is better than the other, but because I want to do something different.

Where do you get your mojo and creative ideas?

To give credit where it is due, my card was inspired by Card Creations by Beth.
