Collaboration with Inchie Arts: Day 6

November 22, 2014

This week we are thrilled to be collaborating with Inchie Arts featuring their awesome Art Squares! What are Art Squares, you ask? They are the perfect surface for stamping and coloring. Art Squares are made from the highest quality, artist grade, precision cut matboard. The material is unique because it behaves like watercolor paper, enabling papercrafters to use a variety of both wet and dry coloring mediums (including paints, inks, stains, markers, colored pencils, etc.) without surface deterioration. Check out all of the sizes and colors of Art Squares on the Inchie Arts website.


Day 6 of our collaboration with Inchie Arts brings to us a special guest… Judy Jung, AKA the talented Mrs. Runs with Scissors! Judy made three cards for us today, each using different sections of our Slapstick/Cling stamp, 40-339 Winter Song.



Judy inked the surface of her stamp with VersaMark Ink and then pressed a 3 inch Art Square face down onto the selected stamp area. After heat embossing, she then added Distress Inks for a light and magical background.


By repeating this process, each time placing a new Art Square on a different part of the stamp, a variety of scenes were created.


A little extra embellishing with Creative Die, 51-080 Around Town, completes the scenes with frosty style.

    I never would have thought of using a larger stamp this way, it is one idea that I will try remembering because it lends itself to making loads of cards with just a couple of stamps!!! Thanks for the incredible but simple idea!!!

    Loce the idea of using different parts of a large stamp. This is something I will have to try since I’m always looking for new ways to use a stamp.

    Wow…I just love that Winter Song Stamp….3 fabulous cards from 1 stamp! I’m guessing that the possibility of creating more and using the small inchies could be “endless” from this gorgeous stamp! Awesome idea of using “bits & pieces” of the stamp to create a card!
    Thanks for a wonderful creative week, also for introducing inchies!!

    I love these little scenes. Great idea for a bigger stamp.

  35. November 22, 2014 11:03 am
