Scraps of thoughts, photos and art


Well here  they are! I swapped with some players on Rubber Stamp Chat again. They are a great group!

There were 2 themes this time: Under the Sea and Spring/Easter. Check them out!


Impression Obsession stamps (top 2 rows)
Sugarloaf Morsels stamps (3rd row)
Stampin’ Up! stamps (last row)
P K Glitz embossing powder
Tsukineko and Ranger inks

I really need to start making cards with these! 🙂

Inchies are the smallest pieces of art that I’ve ever done! A simple 1″ square is what it takes to make and “Inchie”. I’ve been swapping with the group at Rubber Stamp Chat again, this time the theme being Valentine’s Day. Instantly any shade of red comes to mind and hearts right? Well, I followed those thoughts and used my favorite embossing powder (P K Glitz) on one set. Then I tried out some Sticky Back Canvas by Ranger (Claudine Hellmuth) on the 2nd set of Inchies. Pretty simple, but I LIKE them! I stamped with ink onto the canvas, inked the edges then sprayed with some Gold Ritzy Ditzy Glitz. FUN!

I trimmed 1″ squares from a piece of chipboard I had in my stash (yea, it was only one piece – NOT!). The put either the stamped pattern paper or Sticky Back Canvas over the chipboard square. I then continued my design from there.  I can’t wait to see the other ones in the swap and to actually use them in cards! I’ll post them here when I’m done!

I haven’t really made many Inchies before, so I thought I would try them for a Christmas Inchies swap on Rubber Stamp Chat (RSC).

What are Inchies? They are 1″ x 1″ little pieces of artwork that can be used alone on a project or together to create a larger image.

Mine are rather simple, offering the user to be as create as they want to be when using them.

The first set is totally Christmas oriented using red and green paper as the background. The second set is more seasonal using tones of blue.
