Free Cutting files, Free Rubber Stamps and Blog Candy!

Now that I have your attention let me tell you about something very, very cool! The very popular (and easy to find) Inkadinkado is offering a free stamp to anyone who makes a card using their products and mails it to them! You can send up to 3 and get a free stamp per card! How cool is that !?! You can see the details in the March Inka Newsletter. It has inspired me to break out my new “inchie” stamps I got a few weeks ago and play. I made Cricut cutting files (see download links below) to make inchie mats, masks and the inchies themselves, in fact, hardly a scrap of the paper you use to make this goes to waste, love that! Here is what I came up with:

Stamps: Inkadinkado, Ribbon: Target, Cardstock: DCWV and Georgia Pacific

The above and below card were done by applying ink from a rainbow ink pad onto glossy cardstock with a brayer. I used dye-based Kalaidacolor ink pads.

The top panel in this card is white glossy cardstock (Stampin Up!) with brayered ink.I used inchies leftover from the mats to decorate it.

In the card below I used the mat as a mask and applied ink over it, remove the mask then stamped the inchies over my cubes of color.

Also notice the faux tearing, I tore a strip from a magazine and applied ink directly from an inkpad but a brayer would probably look smoother ;-)

Sure Cuts a Lot users download the Inchine mats & Masks .scut file here.

Design Studio Users download the Inchie mats & masks .cut file here. I used the George cartridge to make this file.

I had so much fun making these, and I can use all of the little squares left over from the mats to make other inchies, what fun!

Speaking of fun I will have some blog candy on Monday, one lucky blog reader will score a fabulous prize…stay tuned…

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend and happy crafting!
