Inspirational #151: Christmas Cheer

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 #151 - Christmas Cheer

Deadline for submitting your projects is Wednesday, December 24th at 11:59 PM US Central time. 

This is Drea hosting this week's Inspirational! Our theme this week is all about Christmas Cheer! We want to see any kind of stamped Christmas greeting or image (tree, wreath, Santa, stockings, candy cane, nutcracker, reindeer, presents, snowman, snowflakes, sleigh, lights, etc.).

For complete Inspirational Rules, please read them here

Here is my project based on the theme this week:

I started by blending some Distress Inks onto some white cardstock, and flicked some water over it using an old toothbrush.  Then I used white embossing powder to create snow using the Speckle Background stamp. The trees were stamped in green and brown ink, and then embossed in white, using Oh Christmas Tree. I used Vintage Christmas for the sentiment and snowflakes. 

Kendra created this fabulous card for our inspiration:

Kendra also used images from Vintage Christmas, along with  Snowflake Blocks.

I hope you are inspired by my Inspirational today 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 Inspiration Badge they can display on their blog - and we'll showcase these projects each Monday following the end of the Inspirational!
