Little Things

 Hello to all.  I am sending healthy thoughts to all my inky friends and hope you are all keeping safe.

Today my post is for the new Funkie Junkie Boutique challenge called "Little Things".   It is hosted by the talented Jenny and here is how she describes the challenge:

"Sometimes it can be the littlest of things that can mean the most. For this challenge create a small vintage or shabby chic project (or if you're feeling adventurous even a set!) It could be an Artist Trading Card/Coin, a tag or a little card for example, or you may have something else in mind - we can't wait to see them."
I am a big fan of small design spaces... :) I immediately thought of Inchies! 
I started with a mix of backgrounds and cut up white squares. 

I took a few extra pieces from a background created with shaving cream and inky sprays in shades of blue. (Leftover from the last challenge).  

I stamped over them with the beautiful baroque stamps in a coordinating blue.  I created these Inchies from those backgrounds:

I have been wanting to ink up the new Stampers Anonymous stamps and happy that the angel could float into the inchie. 

I then continued the theme with the word Blessed.
 And then pulled out some snippets to add ephemera to the inchies.

After that I pulled out some butterfly die cuts and used them as a stencil and a focal point. (At which point I tipped over the 1 inch size. :)

I love how the butterfly fits over the edges.

And the other half of the stenciled butterfly.

I then created some atc backgrounds using the same shaving cream inky background.  I stenciled embossing paste over the background.  Waited for the paste to dry and spritzed with some inky spray.
I finished with some stamping and ephemera to create some quirky fun.

Finally a bit of the professor looking sharp... (pun intended)

I hope you enjoyed the inchie fest going on here and are inspired to join us in the challenge. Now is a good time to sequester yourself in the craft room and create. 

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Oh wow, you sure know how to pack a lot of great design into a teeny space. These are all gorgeous.

  2. Just like you Suzz i'm a huge fan of small spaces, inchies were my first thought when I heard of the challenge. Beautiful world with those pops of white so peaceful. They will all make wonderful embellishments and extra additions to many creative spaces.
    Thank you for sharing your wonderful creations.
    Stay safe Tracey x

  3. Suzz it is testament to your design skills that even in the tiniest of spaces your attention to detail and composition shine through. I love these inchies! Tiny works of art, each and every one x

  4. I knew you would make something amazing, regardless of how tiny! How wonderful to see all this tiny eye candy in one place. It is the sure sign of creativity, when you can make so much artistic impact in such a small space. Love each and everyone, but you are tempting me to buy the smaller version of the ephemera. Take care of yourself and your family, sweet girl!

  5. Totally fabulous collection of inchies - pure delight on each and every one. The butterflies are the perfect motif, fluttering from inchie to inchie.
