I asked a few of my fellow blogging friends if they'd like to partake in an Easter Inchies challenge. Let's go see what they created. Click on the names to link to their wonderfu blogs: Cindy Lyles, Trudee Sauer, Debbie Olson and Sharon Harnist. Be sure to leave comments so we know what you think of Inchies!
And here's a few of my creations. Below is an Easter Inchies bandaid tin. I challenged the girls to use Karen Lockhart's Dotted Bunny and Organic carrots for their designs. Well, leave it to me to stray! I wanted to use a pastel theme that matched my patterned paper so I couldn't resist the Lockhart cupcake, snail and inchworm!! Aren't they just adorable?? Notice how the Itty Bitty stamps from Karen fit perfectly on the inchies. For the Dotted Bunny, I simply cropped a 1" section that worked as well. So you can mix and match tiny stamps with larger stamps, it's all good!
And here's another shot of the Inchie tin. I covered another inchie with patterned paper and added a 3-D flower embellishment. The possibilities are endless of what you can create! The little tin can be used to store other Inchies so that the front of the tin can be displayed in different ways on different days. Supplies: Provo Craft Bandaid Tin, Michael's ribbon, MM Garden Party patterned paper, White Inchie squares, Palette Black Noir ink pad, Copic markers.
Here's a shot of some Inchies supplies. Pictured are the white and black Inchies and a roll of magnet tape.
Next, I created an Inchie creation in a card format. I used Ellen's new Sprout paper. It's a fun little collection of papers! For this card design, I used 3 Inchies, staggered on my card layout. By staggering the Inchie squares, I was able to stamp the entire Dotted Bunny image. I colored directly onto the chipboard piece with Copic markers and added some Copic airbrushing to the edges. The Inchies are mounted onto the card with dimensional foam dots. Sentiment is from AMuse and two Decorative Pearls from Ellen's store were added for some bling.
