Inchie Babies

All you paper crafters know what Inchies are...right?

So here's two "Inchie" cards that were born in my craft room today.



The first card I stamped a diamond patterned background from the A Muse Studio Swanky Background set with Sage Ink. Then I heat embossed the letters with white embossing powder to spell BABY. Punch out 1" squares. Mat on Sugar cardstock with some glitter added around the edges. A little more stamping...some sanding...buttons...twine...DONE!



For the 2nd card I stamped a cute little critter from the A Muse Studio Friends Fur-Ever Set. Colored with Copic Markers and punched out with 1" square punch. Mat on French Roast paper and then adhere to punched out scalloped square. A little tone on tone stamping on the card base...a sentiment...a button...some twine...BAMM! Card #2 is DONE!

Here's a great video on Inchies by the famous Julie Ebersole
