Inchie Fun!

I went to bed last night reading the July issue of Card Makers magazine. They had a large section of the magazine devoted to inchies. I must have had inchies floating through my brain all night, because I woke up with an idea for a card.

One of the things that I really love is that I actually whipped out two cards from the same idea. I could not decide if I wanted the card to be horizontal or vertical, so I made one of each! As I look at them, I can tell how much time I've been spending studying Kristina Werner's work. Notice the rounded corners, the kraft cardstock, and the scalloped edge. I'm sure that's all swimming around in my brain because off Kristina. I read her blog religiously!

I just love this little snail from A Muse stamps. This is the first time he's seen ink, even though I've had him since early May. I think this would make a cute gift set, but I'm wondering which version is better. Do you think the vertical, or horizontal version works better? Leave me a comment and let me know which one you like better!

Here are the Copics I used t0 color him up. When I was coloring the shadow, my five year old said, "Ooooh! You're making the slime!" I was hoping it looked like an actual shadow, but I'll take slime too! Have a fabulous day!

Paper: Kraft and cardstock from my stash, PP DCWV Green Stack
Stamp: Snail and sentiment from A Muse Artstamps
Accessories: hemp twine from my stash, Copic markers, CM square punch


  1. Beautiful! I live the vertical but both are fab! Five year olds are awesome aren't they?

  2. love your inchies never realized how small an inch was until I tried this LOL

  3. Terrific cards! Isnt it great when we wake up w/ an idea!!? I like both cards, but probably the horizontal one most!

  4. Great cards!! I'm adding your blog to my google reader now. They are all super cute and clean looking!
