Houseful of Inchies

"I" Scream for .... Inchies?  The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is to be inspired by the letter "I". I created a series of inchies which were very much inspired by design team mate  Andrea.  I am always in awe of Andrea’s whimsical colorful and beautiful art each week.  I tried to emulate her style in my little inchies by bringing in pops of color.

I started with misted paper and cut them down into inchies and then used a variety of punches, stencils and inks to decorate the inchies.


I die cut the houses from cardboard and gave them a coat of white paint.  I then laid out the inchies. I added a circle tag with stars and words on the top.
I love how the bright colors popped on the white washed houses.

I can use these for fun tags on presents to add a pop of color.

  11. I, too, am inspired by Andrea and isn't it great how we have so much fun admiring everyone's creativity? Your project this week caught my eye because they're tags and because I've never tried anything inchie. So you see, you have inspired me!

  13. I am a little tardy in my comments this week, but I am SOoOoOOooO honored that you would try a project in bright bold colors! No wonder I loved this the second I saw it! The house shape is so iconic and you've given these little dwellings such pizazz with those inchies! You have inspired me right back, times TWENTY, and I love, love, LOVE what you did with the ribbons and medallions at the top of the house. This is one of my all-time favorites of yours...again!
