My papercraft and card making projects

Thursday, 28 June 2012


i recently discovered inchies
i saw jill at the stamp man had made a lovely tag with her inchies stamp set so i had to get my hands on it and give it a try
this is my version of her design.

i also bought some pre cut inchies squares which i stamped on
these 2 cards are very similar in that i used the same techniques on both

i distressed the tags with coffee dilution and overstamped with tims crackle stamp.  i edged them with the lace stamp then used some glue stick all around and sprinkled frantage aged gold powder and heat embossed.  i stamped the inchies with coffee archival and stuck 3 inchies to each tag then spritzed it all with heirloom gold.
i stuck the tags to torn pieces of kraft glassine sprayed with copper perfect pearl
[i found cosmic shimmer glue does the job brilliantly -- so glad the gorgeous hels sheridan introduced me to it!!] and added 2 strips of craft mesh i found here at craft-all-day.  i had swooshed a little alcohol ink on the mesh.

before mounting on a kraft card i used various frantage powders and mica flakes and glitters.  i have discovered that the flakes and glitter work best if glued on with cosmic shimmer or glossy accents

i made 2 of these as i made one last weekend at the open day and it went down very well so i thought i would make them some more!


  1. Ooh! I like these! Like the combination of the delicate inches with the frantage and powders... Really fab x

  2. Lovely cards. You definitely love your Fran-tage don't you?! Lovely layers of textures

  3. Fantastic Tony!!! I love how you've used the inchies and all the different techniques, no wonder they were popular last weekend, so much loveliness to admire in them.
