Inspirational #115: Masculine Birthday


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 #115 - Masculine Birthday

Deadline for submitting your projects is Wednesday, April 16 at 11:59 PM US Central time. 

This is Lynda hosting this week's Inspirational!  Our theme this week is all about creating a Masculine Birthday project using your stamps!  Time to celebrate the men in your life with a birthday themed project showcasing your stamps.  For complete Inspirational Rules, please read them here.

Using your stamps create a Masculine birthday project!

For my project I first stamped the Ship collage image onto white cardstock.  I then colored the image using my Copics and chalk.  I then mounted the image onto coordinating cardstock.  I then mounted the colored image onto my card that I covered with this wonderful pattern paper, a strip of a coordinating cardstock, strip of burlap paper, and a few button.


for the card inside I stamped the sentiment from the Label lingo Friends set onto white cardstock.  It then mounted it onto coordinating colored cardstock and more burlap paper.


Here's some more inspiration for you:
Kendra created this wonderful card using images from the Sophisticated Sentiments and the Tree Silhouettes set.


Mary Anne created this fabulous beauty using the Mountain Scenery stamp set.


Paula-Kay created this wonderful project featuring images from the Eyes to See and Masterpiece stamp sets.


Paula-Kay also created this wonderful card using the Hey Life and Always be Fabulous stamp sets.



Let's see what masculine birthday projects you can create!
Happy Stamping!

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!!
