Inspirational #147: Repeat Yourself


Welcome to Red Rubber Inspirationals!

We are excited to bring you a weekly challenge that will focus on stamping and related techniques to inspire and enable you to create art!

Inspirational #147 - Repeat Yourself

Deadline for submitting your project is Wednesday, November 26 at 11:59 PM US Central time.

This is Drea hosting this week's Inspirational! Our challenge this week is to use the same stamp at least three times on your project. Of course, more is even better! So have fun and get creative repeating yourself! 

For complete Inspirational Rules, please read them here.

Here is my project based on our challenge this week:


I started by misting some kraft cardstock with various colors. Then I stamped the black scrolls using Aged Ornaments  onto different colors of tissue paper eight times, even though I covered the bottom one up with my flowers. I did some fussy cutting, and decoupaged them onto the background. Then I used the zigzag Running Stitches in between all of the scroll work, which I embossed in black. 


I made sheet music out of white cardstock, using Distress Inks on the background. For each page I used the Vintage Background stamp six times. The sentiment on the top left was done using the Fanciful Vintage stamp set, which was the only stamp that I used only once.  


I hope you are inspired by my Inspirational this week and link up a newly created project to this post by the deadline! We look forward to seeing what you create!!

Inspirational #146 Stitch Me Up


Welcome to Red Rubber Inspirationals!
We are excited to bring you a weekly challenge that will focus on stamping and related techniques to inspire and enable you to create art!

Inspirational #146 - Stitch Me Up

Deadline for submitting your projects is Wednesday, November 19 at 11:59 PM US Central time. 

This is Lynda hosting this week's Inspirational!  Our theme this week is all about Stitching; whether real or faux!  Your project must focus on a stamped image; which can contain stitching, but somewhere on your project must be stitching; real or faux.

For complete Inspirational Rules, please read them here.

Here is my project based on our theme this week:

I started with the wreath image from the Holiday Wreath set and stamped it in green ink.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Pine Wreath set onto white cardstock.  These images were then trimmed and mounted onto red cardstock.  The stitching lines were then added to the edges of both red cardstock mats.  I then added sequins and some red stickles to the wreath.


Drea created this amazing layout using stamps from the Running Stiches and Alpha Grunge stamp sets:

 


I hope you are inspired by my Inspirational this week and link up a newly created project to this post by the deadline!  We look forward to seeing what you create!!
