Daisy Yellow Creative Prompt Cards

A colorful kick-start.

Creative inspiration for word-lovers & art journalists alike. 

In the 1970s, when I was little, my mom would take me on outings to church basement BINGO halls. She carried a groovy canvas tote bag filled with a rainbow of dip dot markers and played a mean game of BINGO, tracking a dozen cards simultaneously. A guy with over-sized glasses and a cigarette perched nearby sat on the makeshift stage up front. He turned the birdcage and selected ping pong balls with imprinted letters and numbers and shouted them into the microphone. N3! B2!

Inspiration for word-lovers & art journalists

Vibrant art cards spark creative endeavors like art journal pages and creative writing. Each card provides an array of 5-phrase prompts designed to work in harmony. Prompts provide both a challenge and a constraint. 


As simple as playing a game of BINGO! Select a combination {such as B2-I5-N3-G1-O4} and use that sequence to launch a page in your journal, work out ideas on an index card, or write a short story. The original artwork on the card plus the selected phrases together form the prompt. These prompt cards are starting points; interpret the collection of phrases using your imagination and stash of art materials. 

The back-story

The simple one? I set out to create the kind of prompts that I wanted for myself. Something cute, colorful and engaging, like a tarot card, but intriguing as well, to spark creative ideas. At that time I didn't even know Photoshop, so I used the project as incentive to scale the learning curve! It was quite an experience. 

I launched the first series of art journal prompt cards in 2012 and have been devising, brainstorming & developing new designs each year! By now I've designed 200+ creative prompt cards, a mash-up of my art, photography and words galore. As new designs are introduced, older designs are retired to keep the total to about 100 current designs.


Launch creative ideas

Use the cards in your own work or that of a group that you facilitate. Cards have been used by artists, writers, art journalists, non-profit organizations, middle school classrooms, art groups and addiction recovery groups, in rehabilitation centers with at-risk youths, in high schools, middle schools, public library journaling groups and women's art groups. I even made a custom set for my daughter's middle school class to use as part of their creative writing curriculum.

Art should be fun!

Cards are currently available in sets of 10 or 52; when you order your set is hand-selected and I track the cards you get so that you won't get a duplicate in your next order. Yes, I'm that detailed. Thank goodness for spreadsheets! 

Prompt cards fit anywhere a business card will fit, like in the pocket of your purse, your wallet, or the pocket of a journal.
