Inspiration from Around the Globe

Inspiration from Around the Globe – November 2018

Ready for some inspiration? Today we have some projects from around the globe. It’s always fun to see how you’re using my stamps and stencils and I am so happy to share some examples today. So let me know if you’re doing something cool with my products, tag me on social media, and you might see yours on the next Inspiration from Around the Globe!


First we have Addi Mahajan from India using my Versailles stencil as a background in her vibrant art journal page.

Linda Edkins Wyatt from the US is using my Broadway foam stamp on this index card composition for a bold focal point.

And here is Karen D’Angelo from the US using my Amsterdam stencil for some unifying all-over pattern.

And Marsha Valk, a Creative Squad alumni from the Netherlands, and a funky blue bangle bracelet she decorated using my Batik stencil.

And finally, my friend Liz from Germany who made a card with my Lady Liberty stamp. Love it!


If you’re working on something fun with my stamps or stencils, be sure to tag me and share! I’d love to see! You can find all my stencils, rubber stamps, and foam stamps in my Online Shop. Here are some of the supplies used in this post:

From the UK we have a pop of color from Colleen Melody, using some stamps from my Marks stamp set in red here.

From the US we have a neat mixed media index card from Cathy B who has created a nifty wedding scene using my Mailbox, US Flag, and Main Station stamps, all from the fun Stroll Through the Hood 2 set :)

And finally we have some pages from Jade Sutton in the US who is using my Manhattan foam stamps to create a bold background to unify her spread.

Inspiration from Around the Globe – May 2018

Ready for some inspiration? Today we have some projects from around the globe. It’s always fun to see how you’re using my stamps and stencils and I am so happy to share some examples today. So let me know if you’re doing something cool with my products, and you might see yours on the next Inspiration from Around the Globe!


First from the US we have a gorgeous little book for Earth Day by Tina Walker (who was a member of our Creative Squad and you can check out some of her other projects HERE). On this page she is using my Versailles stencil for the background.

Here she uses my Toledo stencil as a background pattern for another page.

Next is an art journal spread from Mary Thoma in the US also. I love this portrait and the use of my Batik Pattern 4 foam stamp for the bold background and that little chain border is my Chain Link rubber stamp from the Embroidery set. What a beautiful page!

Loving all these patterns from Kate Crane in the UK! She’s using my Marks stamp set for those red and black xxx marks and hash marks.

Here is a beautiful page from Ellen Captijn from the Netherlands, inspired by this year’s Creative JumpStart online workshop. Be sure to visit her Instagram page to see the full art journal spread. I love how she’s incorporated by Buenos Aires Border foam stamp along the bottom in blue and my Valley Road foam stamps along the right side.

And finally we have an “oldie but a goodie” from Louise Nelson in Australia. She reposted this layout from 2013 so we thought we’d give it some love too :)  That awesome texture in the background is none other than my Crackle stencil – one of my first stencil designs and always a fan favorite after all these years! Thank you Louise!


Thank you to all the talented artists!  If you’d like to give some of these ideas a try, here are the stamps and stencils that they used:


Don’t forget to tag me when you post your projects! I’d love to include your work in my next Inspiration From Around the Globe post!

Here is Barbaree King from the US with my Central Ave ArtFoamies for those circular patterns in the background – such a beautiful art journal spread!

And finally here is Linda Edkins Wyatt from the US using my Broadway and my Versailles foam stamps for an active background in this art journal page. Love all the patterns mixing together :)

First up is a super lovely and colorful art journal spread from Barbaree King in Florida. Her Creative JumpStart inspired page uses my circular Grove Street ArtFoamies stamps for an unexpected background.

Next we have an art journal spread from Jeannine Stein at Cloth Paper Scissors Magazine in Massachusetts. She’s created a lush background and stamped over it with my Brownstone and Lady Liberty stamps. Love it!!!

Here we have some awesome tissue paper stamping action by Sue Sharp from Canada! She drew inspiration from a lesson in Creative JumpStart and used the stamps from my Marks stamp set.

From the UK we have a gorgeous art journal spread from Frieda Oxenham with one of my favorite icons of the NYC skyline :) and 2 cool ways to use my Chicago stencil for the background and border.

And finally, a celebration of pattern in her art journal by Valerie Teele in California. She was playing along with Creative JumpStart and used my Manhattan and New Orleans stencils :)


I hope you enjoyed these projects and feel inspired to do some creative play yourself! Here are the stamps and stencils that were used:

Inspiration from Around the Globe

Hello my friends! Today we have some projects from around the globe to inspire you. It’s always fun to see how you’re using my stamps and stencils and I am so happy to share some examples today. So let me know if you’re doing something cool with my products, and you might see yours on the next Inspiration from Around the Globe!


First we have a few “stroll-velopes” by Judi Kauffman from Washington DC to share with you. I love the little scenes that Judi put together using my Adirondack Chairs, Snail Mail, and Street Sign stamps from my My Home is My Castle stamp set. She also used my Tread and Pie Top stamps and my Love Knots stamp.

Here is Marlynn from Virginia with a powerful art journal spread. Love how she used my Brownstone, Warehouse, and Main Station stamps for that cityscape. And I see a bit of my Tread stamp in there too!

Here is Linda Edkins Wyatt from NYC and her gorgeous art journal spread using my Broadway foam stamp set. I just love it in purple!

From Mary Thoma in Oklahoma, we’ve got this great little “catch” using my Art Deco Wallpaper stencil, and inspired by one of our Creative JumpStart lessons :)

And finally we have two lovely art cards from Frieda Oxenham from Scotland. She is using my Marks stamp set in these – X marks the spot :)


Here are some of the stamps and stencils that they used:



As always, please let me know if you are using my products in your creations! I would love to include your work next time.

Inspiration from Around the Globe

 

This Tuesday we’re taking a break from our Creative Squad (they will be back next week with a new theme to play with!) to bring you some super fun projects from around the world. As you may know, my stamps and stencil designs are available for purchase online and maybe even in your local craft store, so crafters and mixed media artists and art journalers from around the world are using them. I am always excited to see how YOU use my products in your own projects. I am even more excited to share some of the beautiful and creative examples of these projects with you today. Enjoy this inspiration from around the globe!

First we have a super fun idea from one of our Creative Squad members, Marsha Valk from the Netherlands, for an Easter-themed table runner. Although Easter was last month, this is still a fantastic way to use my stencils on a project that can dress up your table for any occasion. Marsha uses a whole slew of my stencils, including Buenos Aires, Santiago, Mesa Verde, Manhattan, Amsterdam, Toledo, and Chicago for a variety of cool patterns.

In honor of Spring, we have a gorgeous stenciled flower pot from Jean Dunning of Connecticut using my Santa Fe stencil. If you like this idea, stay tuned – we coincidentally have a similar project planned here at nStudio later this month ;)

Here’s an art journal page from Angie Winkler in Oklahoma using my Urban Scribble stamp set and my Chicago Positive Negative foam stamp set to create a beautiful urban sunset. I love the contrast and colors on this one, and the creative use of the Chicago stamps for the sky!

From the Netherlands, Jacqueline van Zuiden brings us a really cute gift for her new great nephew that all started with my Elephant foam stamp. It’s super happy and I love the message :)

Join us again next Tuesday for another great project from one of our Creative Squad members!  They will be working with a new theme for May.  And in the meantime, share with me what you’ve been working on with my stamps and stencils.  I would love to feature your project in an upcoming post!
