CardMaker and Inchies Blog Hop!

Hello and Welcome!   Today the CardMaker Blog DT and the folks at Inchie Arts have teamed up for a blog hop to show you lots of projects made with their wonderful Inchie Squares.  If you are hopping along you should have reached me from CardMaker Magazine Blog. That's also where you can get all the details about today's hop.  Inchie Arts is also having a give away today - you can read more here.

So what exactly are "Inchie Squares"?  They are high quality matboard squares.  They are ideal for stamping, coloring, painting, embossing, collage, and detailed ink work.   They come in different sizes and colors too. 
My first card features a beautiful fall scene.  The images were stamped with pigment Ink, and the color is crisp and clean!  I used both the 1" as well as 3" squares on this project

For my second project I stamped spooky Halloween images on 1" Inchie Squares and then distressed the edges.    I mounted them on die cut squares that resemble stamps and arranged them in two rows.  Some gems, a pretty bow topped with a paper flower, and a beaded spray I found in the wedding section of the craft store make this look really fussy. 
Ready to see more Inchie works of art?  Your next stop is Mae Nazareth! 


For your convenience, here's a complete list of everyone with projects today!  Don't forget to check out Inchie Arts to get more information on the prize and how to win!

Love what you have done with the inchies, LOVE the postage stamp bordering them!!!!

Eileen Esposito said...

Impressive stamping. I really like the thank you card!

Papertangler said...

I am cramming my head full of ideas. I like how you used the inchied as embellishment on card 1. And I like how you placed the rhinestone spray right on top of the inches on card 2. I would have been afraid to do that.

Patty said...

These inchies are so cool! Love the cards!

Sharron said...
