Inch By Inch
When I won a challenge online a couple of years back I was given, as part of the prize, a wee little packet of miniature scraps which was labeled 'inchies kit'. It got tossed in the parts and starts bin as I was not inspired by it at the time.
I recently ran across that kit and decided to challenge myself to create as many inchies as I could from it. I added only a couple of things from my own stash (button, punchouts, gold trim) and made 5 little miniature works of art, each one inch square.
That was step one. Then I set them aside for a couple of weeks until I challenged myself to make cards with each of them. This is the set I ended up with...
Inchie includes: doll image, ribbon scrap, paper flower, button, text sticker. Card includes: printed cardstock square, cardstock strip, printed cardstock strip, Cuttlebug embossed background, cardstock text sticker, butterscotch folded card base.
Inchie includes: printed cardstock background, star punchouts, text block, gold peel-offs. Card includes: printed cardstock square, Cuttlebug embossed background,'old paper' distress ink, three cardstock stext stickers, rose folded card base.
Inchie includes: Textured cardstock, sheer ribbon scrap, cat punchout, star punchout, sunflower button with shank removed. Card includes: ColorMe paper treated with chalk ink direct to paper, A rub-on frame element, three cardstock text stickers, apricot folded card base, black fine-line marker faux stitches.
Inchie includes: violet cardstock base, graphic of violets with corners rounded, black ribbon snippet tied through punched holes, purple shrinky-dink stamped heart. Card includes: ColorMe paper background with sprayed coloration, fine-linemarker dots within pattern, rub-on frame element, cardstock text sticker, 'old paper' distress ink on edges.
Inchie includes: glossy color gradation background, two ribbon snippets layered, gold peel-off borders, shrinky-dink floral image. Card includes: ColorMe paper with sprayed coloration, Rub-on frame element, photo corners, clear text sticker strip, violetfolded card base.
These are all truly one of a kind as I will never have an inchies kit like that one again and many of the scraps I used to complete the cards were also one of a kind or last of the supply.
