Sweet Inchies

This week the be inspired challenge at cuttlebug challenge blog is to use inchies! If you are not familiar with inchies, they are basically small one inch shapes that are stamped or decorative in any way.There are many ways to interpret the inchie into your design, I invite you to play along with this fun challenge. For all the details including this weeks prize, go to cuttlebug challenge


These tiny cherries are from the cutest little stamp set called tart and tangy by Stampin Up! and have a thin coat of crystal effects on them for a glossy finish. To be fair my scallop squares are a tad bigger than an inch, but I took a little creative licence with the theme of the challenge  :) every now and then you just have to color outside of the lines *giggle*


How much fun are these vintage buttons? I have a big jar of misc buttons that my cousins found at a tag sale a few years ago, I will need to make a thousand cards before I use them all, thanks Lisa and Jeanette!!!

Now that you know what inchies are I hope you have fun coming up with your own version! Happy Creating!
