This week my POTW for The House that Stamps Built is a Blast from the Past.
Who remembers "inchies" - from several years back?? Well this week I will be using a variety of Repeat Impressions stamps to make some inchie cards.
The tools and supplies are simple, a punch, die, or a simple cutter and some cardstock along with stamps is all you need to bring the inchies back.
As I was going through my Repeat Impressions stamps I saw so many that I could use for this technique/style but I kept it to 4 plus sentiments.
4516-C Teacup and stamped it in a pretty shade of blue, then mounted it on a couple of layers 2 solid and 1 print. Background paper in pretty shades of blue - and I still thought it needed something else, so a row of die cut lace. This is a square card so extra postage would be needed to mail this one.
For this one I chose to do circle inchies - and the 9309-C Tiny Cupcake and 1113-D Happy Birthday for my sentiment. I cleaned out my ribbon box this past weekend and found this extra wide cupcake ribbon that I thought would work perfectly with the cute little cupcakes. I embossed the cupcakes in three different colors added a little enamel bling on each cupcake and then mounted it on a matching color. For my background I had a pad of "watercolor" wash DP so I went with that for my card.
For this one I used 4511-I Kite and 6520-C Dream Big I stamped the kite on a small piece of white card stock then again on plaid. I paper pieced just the kite and used an inch square punch to punch out just the kite. I then stamped the entire image on a rectangle white card stock and mounted the paper pieced inchie on top. I really like how this one turned out - love the colors. Got my grandkids kites this spring and they loved them.
For my final selection I used 2413-H California Light House as my focal image, and 1112-E Just a Note. I stamped the lighthouse in navy and very carefully with my inch punch I divided it up into 3 sections. I then mounted those pieces on navy die cut piece. Just a note used another punch and I mounted that sentiment on navy as well. I choose a nautical theme background to mount this on.
If you follow me - watch for the July Tic Tac Toe to see one more inchie I made for the TTT challenge.
Go through your Repeat Impressions stamps and see all of the images that will work for this oldie but goodie technique or style. This was a really fun one to showcase this week.
