Tea Party Challenge: Inchies!!

Hi everyone, I am back!! I have tons of things to tell you, but maybe later or in another post, right now I want to show you the cards I made for today's smARTworks Tea Party Challenge: Inches!! Donelda challenged us to use inchies in our projects, sorry last week I didn't post about the challenge, but here are my cards. To be honest I am not too good playing with inchies, maybe because they are too small, LOL.

For my first card One Step at a time I used one of the new releases from smARTworks Journey. For this card I stamped the image in Basic Brown onto Vanilla Card stock. I cut the image 3" x 4" and then cut it in 1" square pieces. I positioned my inchies on Brown CS and then again on Vanilla CS. Then I paper pierced the around of the image on the Kraft CS. The sentiment was stamped in Basic Brown.

Card Recipe :
Card stock: Kraft, Vanilla, Brown.
Journey by smARTworks.
Ink: SU Basic Brown.
Accessories: SU Dimensionals, Paper piercing set

My second card is Happy Mother's Day, are you getting ready for Mother's Day?? I am!! I started already and here is one of my cards. This Basket set is really pretty, the basket is super cool to color. For this card my inchies are part of the background design. Every inchie was sponged in Riding Hood Red.

Card Recipe:
Card Stock: White, Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette.
Paper: SU Bella Rose.
Basket by smARTworks.
Ink: Stazon Black, Riding Hood Red.
Embellishments: Dew drops.

I hope you like my creations, now head over to Susan, Dina, Trish, Donna, and Donelda and enjoy their creations!!!

Don't forget you can play along too!! You don't need to use smARTworks stamp, use any stamp you own and enjoy the fun with us.

Have a great day!!!
God bless.


  1. SO pretty! I especially like the Mothers' Day card with the background inchies! You're right though, they are too small to use very often!

  2. I LOVE them both!! I am especially excited to see the background inchies on your second card. I've never though of doing that before!!! I'll have to give it a try!! Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Great cards! I love the way you've used the inchies as "tiles" on both, but with such different results...

  4. I think you did a great job! The first card reminds me of looking through a window, and using inchies as a background on the Mother's Day card is sheer genius!

  5. These cards are both beautiful, but the Mother's Day card is an absolute show-stopper! The coloring in wonderful, and I really like they idea of using the inchies as a background. Fabulous!
