Inchies are the hot thing in paper crafting. If you have no idea what they are, take a look at this blog and see what you can create in a one inch square. Another blog takes it a different way, using the inchies to embellish a larger platform. That is what I chose to do. The stamps I used on this card are made specifically for inchie art but I needed to add them to my card behind a die cut area. You can buy these die cut cards already made up from various online vendors or use the Sizzix die that I used. There is also a three window version. I will get that later with a coupon.

I backed all my inchies with black card stock. These inchies were placed inside the windows on a pink sheet of card stock. Or you could place them behind on the inside of the card so when you open the card, the cats are inside. Whatever works for you. I used a punch on the bottom that I layered a piece of ribbon over and tied in a knot. The rub on-maybe I should rethink it. Because of the texture of the grey card stock, the rub on did not go nicely from the wax paper to the grey area. It broke apart and I had to piece it to get it to stay. I used some pearl bling to finish the top edges. This is a card any gramma would love, especially if she loves kitties. I know mine did.

ETA I forgot to add that the stamps in this set are from Inkadinkado. Joann's had them in the store but I have not seen them recently. I also did not know they were now part of EK Success.

  3. Wow-whee, I am loving the idea of the grey and pink together, soooo cool and different! Also, I have to confess, I am quite jealous of that ribbon (one can NEVER have enough ribbon!)

  4. I love this kitty card! I also really like the textured gray background paper. Thanks for sharing and the reminder to get out my inchie stamps and start playing.


Thank you for stopping by and sitting a spell with me and mine. I hope you take away a smile!
