There was a fab article in Craft Stamper this month (although it says March 2012!). It was by Sarah Engels-Greer and she used inchies on her cards. So, duly inspired, here is what I came up with.
This was the first card I made. I made a DL card base and punched the inside edge with my Stampin' Up Scallop Punch. Next I added a strip of lace and some red ribbon. Then I stamped some butterflies from Clear Choice 20 Best Friends in SU Real Red onto white card and punched out sections using a Woodware 1" punch, then mounted them on red card and popped them on top of the ribbon using foam dots. Lastly I added the word 'memories' (from the same stamp set).
Next I made the same card blank but added some hessian (it's got sparkly bits in it - only hessian I had!) and used leaf stamps (Clear Choice Leaf Decor) and SU Garden Green. The sentiment is from Hero Arts. I'd like to enter this card into Gingersnap Creations Glorious Greens Challenge.
As I was enjoying myself I went on to make two more. The purple one uses SU Bloomin' with Beauty stamps and Rich Razzleberry ink and the brownish one uses stamps from Personal Impressions Clear Summer and Colorbox Chalk ink in Amber Clay.
I'd like to enter all my cards into So Artful's Challenge - Georgia O'Keefe inspiration (I love her paintings especially the flower ones).
