This first piece is a thank you card made from a clear set of stamps from American Craft. Very purple! I like the dimension I built into the card using pop dots. I also like how I made the THANKS greeting into two inchies with a punch stroke! Some of the inch squares are stamped, some are run through an embossing folder, to give variety.
The next card uses some kitchen paper and a set of clear stamps from Amuse with a kitchen theme. I thought of a kitchen cabinet so I encased my inchies into a "cabinet" I made with narrow strips of foam. Again, I liked using pop dots to raise some elements of the squares up for dimension. Lots of delicate cutting on this piece! Another unique feature of this piece is how I cut up bits and pieces of a discarded dictionary to add text elements.
This last card uses the foam strips and the text elements used above but this time makes a dress shop "window". The stamp is a row of cute little girl dresses, each stamped on inked and distressed paper.
Inchies are one of my favorite art forms. I love arranging those little squares into mosaic style cards and scrapbook pages. I read on a Flickr Inchie site on the web that you can keep your Inchies in coin collection plastic pages--the size for quarters. Inchie supplies can be bought from Ellen Hutson LLC, who stocks items from Inchie Arts and Lockhart stamps. Inkadinkado makes a lot of Inchie clear stamp sets--the easy way to approach Inchie Art! Good things come in small packages!
