Rise and Shine, Inspirational Challenge #105

This week's Inspirational Challenge #105 is Country Charm hosted by Mary Ann from Red Rubber Inspirationals.  My sample is Rise and Shine, a Red Rubber Designs stamp set.  I love this collage stamp, and it definitely is country.  I used Kraft cardstock and burlap ribbon for a more rustic look.

Wonder and Joy

using glitter, mist or other sparkles.  I decided to join in the 
challenge and stamp my background using Background Soup, adding a touch of sparkle to it with a clear Wink of Stella pen.  This is a stamp from Wonder and Joy by Red Rubber Designs.  She is a sweetie. 

You can see the sparkle a little better in the close-up photo.

Won't you join the Inspirational Challenge with your sparkly creation?

Pickled Potpourri Design Team announcement/Just Dance card


Today the announcement was made on the Red Rubber Inspirationals for the new design team for Pickled Potpourri DesignsPickled Potpourri is the new digital site for Red Rubber Designs.  The digital stamps are old favorites from The Angel Company as well as new designs and digital papers.  I'll be a designer for Pickled Potpourri in 2014 along with Stacy Rogers.

 This is my first card to show you made from a Pickled Potpourri digi stamp set.  It is called Just Dance.  It is such a happy, celebrating image.  Use your imagination to decide for what she is dancing.  Maybe it is her birthday? Or a celebration of some sort?  The background paper is a digi paper called Tropical Flowers. I hope you get inspired to try some of the Pickled Potpourri stamps.

Perky Penguins - Red Rubber Designs Inspirational #102 - Winter Stamps

Red Rubber Designs has a new Inspiration Team with weekly inspiration challenges.  I'm jumping in with the first 2014 challenge by Kendra, which is to use winter stamps.  These Perky Penguins by Red Rubber Designs are some of my favorite fun stamps.  They are so playful and cute.  I made a scene with them enjoying the winter snow.  I figured this would make a good January birthday card.

Be sure to check out the Red Rubber Inspirationals Blog to see Kendra's card and tutorial.  It is super cute.  Won't you join the inspirational challenge and submit your winter stamps creation?  You can link on here.
