Inchies Squared

A second card for JUGs and a first one for this weeks Paper Players challenge. One idea often leads to another and that is how this card came about. Actually have another on the go using left over pieces but probably won’t have it finished until tomorrow.

Just Us Girls #531 – Trend Week

Using some window dies I die cut the Yellow and blue squares saving the outer frames for a different project. The gray layer was cut using a punch. It is gray but looks almost beige in the photo. I glued the yellow and gray layers first and using the frame as a guide added them to the square card front. Using the frame meant I got nice uniform placement. After searching through my stamps I found a couple of sets that have very tiny images with a vacation or boating theme that fit well onto the small squares. I stamped them and then used a Sakura Jelly roll pen in blue to add the edges to each one. Did the same thing to the gray layer only using a gold pen. Once I decided on placement of the blue layer I glued them down. Added a touch of glitter here and there as well as a few strategically placed gems in blue and yellow. Found some blue ribbon and made the small bow for the center square. It looks better in R.L. than it does on the photo.

  1. Thanks Lisa. Got the idea from something I saw on Pinterest. The original was very colourful and much bigger. As I was using the colours in the challenge I had some limitations in adding the stamps.


  2. Very clever and creative with all of your layered blocks and love the vacation theme. Hopefully we will have some kind of vacation this year.

  3. Glad you like it and we are hoping we will get to use our boat this summer. Right now it isn’t looking good as many small communities are asking people not to come. That said our province is so far doing a really good job of flattening the curve so we may get lucky and have things begin to normalize soon.


  4. I love how you featured the squares in the corners and then flipped them for the diamonds. Every little inchie so beautifully represents your nautical theme. So pretty! Thanks so much for joining us over at The Paper Players!
