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:
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.
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 ;-)
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!
