CardMaker Magazine & Inchie Arts Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to the 

I must confess, I had never used Inchies before these projects and I am totally in love.
Little canvases at my beck and call, ready for me to adorn with ink, paint, paste...
whatever my little heart desires.


Using Fall colors and loads of stencils, each 1 inch square is uniquely done with embossing paste.






Leaves were airbrushed with markers, metallic cord added for a little shine.

Did you know Inchie Arts has more than just 1 inch squares?
They have all different sizes and colors.

I loved this 4 inch mat board square and wanted to make something besides a card:


Using a stamp positioner, I was able to achieve a layered look in Silver & Gold by heat embossing.


Now I have a tiny work of art to display in my china cabinet. :)

Hope these projects have given you inspiration to try your own Inchie Arts. Make sure to comment on each blog along the way as I heard there are prizes to be won.
