Inspirational #117 - Postage Due

Welcome to Red Rubber Inspirational!

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

Today's Inspirational is #117: Postage Due
Deadline for submitting your projects is Wednesday, April 30th, at 11:59 PM U.S. Central Time

This is Mary Anne, your hostess this week.  Our theme is Postage Due.  We want you to create a stamped card or project that uses something to do with mail.  This could mean postage canceled stamps, postage stamps, postcard wording, or envelopes.   For complete details for entering our Inspirationals go HERE

As an example I crated this card featuring True Beauty Rubber Stamp Set and the Fanciful Vintage Rubber Stamp Set from Red Rubber Designs.  I chose a pale turquoise design paper and then cut it into the shape of an envelope.  After this I over stamped the top and bottom flaps with the word "postcard" from the Fanciful Vintage set and on the two side flaps I stamped a cancelled postage mark also from the Fanciful Vintage set.  For the collage on top I used three of the four butterfly stamps from the True Beauty set and colored them with colored pencils.  I cut them out and popped them onto bits of card stock that I cut with a postage edged scissors.  

Paula-Kay created this beautiful inspirational using a purple and teal color scheme.  She also using the Fanciful Vintage Stamp Set and the Fly Fairy Stamp Set

Andrea Slee has this lovely Congratulations card and she used quite a few stamp sets; Fanciful Vintage, Vintage Background, Savvy Sayings, Alpha Hip, I Heart You, Vintage Script, Beauty of a Woman, and Background Soup

Lynda created this project using the Butterfly Postage set:

I hope you are inspired by my Inspirational this week and link up a newly created project to this post before the deadline.
