The Inchie-IO Fall Challenge Has Begun

Newest Inchie-IO

It's our IO Fall Card Using Inchies Challenge.  If you don't have your Inchies supplies by now, you may want to substitute by using your square punches until you get yours.  To find out more about Inchies products you can check HERE.  To see what Inchies and our IO DT have created you can click on the links below:

Now,  some information about the uniqueness of Inchies:

They are made from the highest quality matte board in the marketplace today.  They behave like a very high quality art paper - some compare it to a super thick hot press watercolor paper.  They can be colored with both wet and dry mediums from color pencils, pastels, watercolor paints, Copic markers to stains and dyes without warping or disintegrating. And of course their thickness provides a perfect platform for embellishing! The product is available in 7 different colors, in 3 different sizes. Product info can be found on the Inchies web site and all kinds of tutorials and ideas, plus the great ideas above from the IO and Inchies Design Teams, or how to use the products can be found on their creative blog, All In An Inch.

Now for our first entries from our customers.  The first two were created by Tracey Kuzniak.  She chose to use Cover-A-CardTM Pine, Large Paisley, Flourishes, Woven, and Swirls & Stars.  Her sentiment is a rub-on.  A really beautiful patch work card, Tracy!  She said she is in love with the Cover-A-CardTM stamps.

For her second card she again used Cover-A-CardTM Large Paisley, Flourishes, and Swirls & Stars and the word is a rub-on.  A really bright, warm, and gorgeous Fall card, Tracey.  Thank you for participating and good luck in the drawing too!

The last wonderful card for this post comes from Deloris Thiede at Stamping At The Lake.  Her card was designed using Fall Cube.  A really stunning Fall card and really beautiful use of inks too!  Thank you so much for sharing with us, Deloris and good luck in the drawing too!

The first two are from Bernadette Tolley.  For her first card she chose Spa Day, which can also be purchased as a clear stamp set, Inner Witch.  What a fun card!  Bernadette said she is using the Shake-ItTM Pouch like a window.  Very creative, Bernadette!!
