Inspirational #128 - Anything Goes

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 #128 - Anything Goes

Deadline for submitting your projects is Wednesday, July 16, 2014 at 11:59 PM US Central time. 

This is Lynda hosting this week's Inspirational!  Our theme this week is Anything Goes with stamps...remember you must have stamping of some kind on you project!
For complete Inspirational Rules, please read them here.

Here are my projects based on our theme this week.

For my first project, I stamped the Diamond ornament image three times in a row onto white cardstock.  I then added the glitter brad to the center of each image.  I then inked around the edges of the cardstock.  I then trimmed the pattern paper to fit my card base and printed this sentiment from Pickled Potpourri's Today stamp set onto the paper.  I then adhered the pattern paper and stamped image onto my card base.  I finished the card by rounding the corners on the pattern paper side of the card.

This next project features these wonderful floral images from the Spring Dream stamp set.  I stamped each flower onto cardstock that I trimmed to the same size.  The images were colored with Copics.  I then used my scissors to rough up the edges of each piece.  They were then mounted to my card base that had a single strip of washi tape on it.  The edge of the cardbase was also roughed up with my scissors.  The sentiment, from the Nature's greetings digital sentiment set was printed onto the cardstock; it is from Pickled Potpourri our digital image sister company.

My final card is made with all images from Pickled Potpourri.  The main image is from the Today set.  The sentiment is from the Nature's Greetings set.  The main image was colored with my Copics and then fussy cut out.  I then backed it onto black cardstock and then onto my card base.  I then roughed up the edges and doodled around the entire card.

Paula-Kay created this amazing card using the Take Pride and Trendy Greetings 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!!
