Inspirational #216: Make A Fuss



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 #216 - Make A Fuss

Deadline for submitting your projects is Wednesday, April 22 at 11:59 PM U.S. Central time.

This is Drea hosting this week's Inspirational! Our theme this week is to fussy cut your stamping. For complete Inspirational Rules please read them here.

Here is my project based on our theme this week:



I used some Distress Inks on the background and flicked some water on it. Then I stamped my Beautiful Butterflies with black ink, colored them with markers, and fussy cut them. After curling the wings up, I gave them a coat of Glossy Accents for some shine. I also used the Fern Frond stamp and Running Stitches for the stitching on top.  For the sentiment I used the Darling stamp. 



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!!

This is Barb hosting this week's Inspirational!  Our theme this week is Spring Flowers.
Really easy so just stamp any flower or flower's on any type of project.  It can be cards, 
scrapbook page, 3D or mixed media!  So think spring and let's see those flower projects!
Please indicate in your description how and where you used those stamps!

Here is my project based on our theme this week:



Inside with sentiment

I started with a gate fold card measuring 5 1/2 x 5 1/4. Chose my designer
paper and adhered two panels to the front.  I then stamped Abounding Rose in
Memento Sweet Plum ink and colored with Copics to match DP. Added a piece of smimmer yellow
cardstock and a die cut behind that in purple glitter card stock.  Added a few butterflies and leaves.
On the inside of card I stamped Contemporary Greetings Birthday Blessing in black ink.

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!
