Inchie Paintchips

Last week I showed you a quick and easy paintchip bookmark.  Today I will show you some other ideas for paint chips. The finished “friends” ATC is another tutorial I did called Wax Crayons.

Today’s tutorial is all about inchies.  You can emboss them and stamp on them.  Today I will show you both.


Paint chips

Square punch or Nestabilities square die

Embossing folder


Stamps (not in photo)

After cutting out your inchies, run them through the Cuttlebug, or another die cutting/embossing machine.

Emboss all of your pieces

Lay your inchies in an even space and adhere them to your card front.

Finish off your card as desired.

Using your paint chips again, you will stamp on them.

Step 1:  Layout out your inchies in a verigated fashion with the lightest on the left, slowly going darker towards the right.

Step 2:  Stamp on your inchies, using inchie stamps or regular stamps.  Here I used inchie stamps.

Evenly space your inchies on your card front, laying your paintchips in a verigated fashion like above.

Finish off your inchie cardfront as desired, or leave alone like this.

Wouw Beth these are gorgeous. I love how they both got to look. I´ll definately have to try that with scrap ppaers here, cause unfortunately we don´t get loads of paintchips here, as we have to buy those things here and believe me, they¨re not cheap, so noone buys more than one and save it until it can´t be seen any colors on anymore, but the idea is awesome and can also be used for scrats, so I´m just going to try this, that´s for sure. I love how they got to look. You´re one clever cookiee ha ha ha.
Have a great day hn and lots of fun.
