Inspirational #116: Back to Nature

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 #116:  Back to Nature

Deadline for submitting your projects is Wednesday, April 23 at 11:59 PM US Central time.

Drea here hosting another fun challenge! This week is all about getting back to nature. With the weather so nice right now, it's perfect for a hike, getting dirty in your garden, or just smelling the roses. 

For complete Inspirational Rules, please read them here.

Use any type of stamp found in nature!

I came up with this card that I made with lots of water distressing, inking, misting, layering, and of course stamping. I stamped the background trees onto kraft cardstock using Tree Silhouettes and Mountain Scenery with Palette Inks (Jardin Moss and Burnt Sienna).

 Then I used the same Burnt Sienna ink to stamp the bear image using Something Marvelous. I colored it in with Distress inks and water color pencils.

Paula-Kay created this gorgeous card using Be fabulous and For Everything stamp sets. Such beautiful color and detail!

I can't wait to see how you get back to nature! 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!! 


Are you an inspiration? 

Inspiration Projects - After each Inspirational, the Inspiration Team will choose three projects from those submitted via the link-up tool below which we think best reflect the theme of the Inspirational.

Each artist whose project is chosen receives a special Inspirational Badge they can display on their blog - and we'll showcase these projects each Monday following the end of the Inspirational!


  1. I love these cards! I especially love the lace placement on the first card! It resembles mountains (in my opinion) which goes with the card perfectly!!

  2. These inspiration projects are just fabulous!! And, except for the bear & mountains stamp, I have them all! Great job, gals!!!

  3. Congrats to last weeks winners!
    Thank you for such gorgeous inspirations and another great challenge Karen x
