Inchie Bird Arch

A little while ago I loved everything to do with birds.

Just couldn't get enough of nests, birds-eggs etc. I didn't think it would pass, but it has, just like that - but at least I have this souvenir to remind me of the downloads I made and the papers I used in that phase of crafting. It might come back again next year around Spring time.

Another forgotten inchie card

This card was made for one of the first Hero Arts challenges they held on the new blog.

This was made in 2008 too - nice to put it away safely in this blog - it's a way of saving it from the hard disk! (I do have a USB key by the way)

Different kinds of inchies

I hadn't even considered this old card as an inchie card, but it is, just different.

This one was made early 2008, just saw it in my files.
BTW, I have lost all my recent downloads and cards I made over the last year - just disappeared! Happily it doesn't effect me, but I'm sorry not to have them. All that work!

Patterned paper grid backgrounds

These were papers I bought from the Internet, I loved them so much. Ideal to use as a grid back panel for cards.

Here are two examples.

Inchie tag

I am updating my blog with creations that I haven't put in here yet because of the sketch challenge blog I discovered a week ago. I very much want to take part and use just this blog to do so.

This is a tag, not with inchies because these squares are punched with a much smaller punch.

I had forgotten this one

I found another inchie card that still had to be entered into the appropriate blog. It was for a color challenge on the Moxie Fab World blog.

Not my usual style, but thats what a challenge is all about!

By the way I used to love punched out butterflies, but I have seen that the stamped butterflies are gradually winning it from the punched out sort now!

Inchies on a card

I just found this card in my files that I had made in December 2007 - had to go into the appropriate blog.

I like the idea of inchies on a card. I used alcohol inks and I still use the same little bottles today. They last a long time!

Another grid sketch

I used the Hero Arts CardArt Thank You Flourish stamp, white and gold embossing and alcohol ink background for this card.

And this is the sketch which can be found on this blog.

New grid cards with alcohol inks

I had a request for these cards. A lady said that she would buy whatever I made, so I am in the process of creating. I really love dissecting a stamp after stamping and embossing it and then arranging it in a grid.

Of course it can be done in so many different ways, with different inks, colors, techniques. Actually the sky's the limit with inchie cards! Thats what I like about them.

I discovered a new blog - Inchie Inklings

Via Donna Mikasa, who wrote to me about an inchie blog she found, I can now make inchie cards according to some great sketches. The blog is here and is called Inchie INKlings. Love her work.

Mix and match and added sewing

Another way to use up all the snippets and cut-outs which need to find a home. The added feature to this card is sewing, which I love to do ...
