CardMaker & Inchie Arts Blog Hop!!

Hello there! Hope you are Hopping along with the CardMaker & Inchie Arts blog teams today! You should be arriving from Sharon's beautiful blog!
If you are just happening on this and want to begin the Hop, please begin at the CardMaker blog.

I had a lot of fun playing with these art squares! They are made from high-quality mat board & you can do just about anything to them and they don't wrinkle, buckle. or pill up. I made these projects today and another one that will be coming up on CardMaker blog on the 17th, and tried just about everything I could think of, and they are awesome!

We are having a Fall theme to the Hop today and here is my "official" card for the Hop. I say official because I made two other cards with the squares that I will show you today, but they are not Fall cards-so, shhhhhh! haha! ;) Here is the Fall card, I used the 3" black art squares on this project.  I colored a background with an orange gelato, and the heat embossed the ghost & sentiment over it in white pigment ink and white powder. A simple mat and layered embellishment I put together were all that were needed to accent that cute ghost.


So, here's a couple "unofficial" cards for you to see as well. ;)  The first was stamped with dye inks and gelatos, then spritzed with water for a watercolor look. Then the sentiment was heat embossed over the top of the flower image. This card uses the white 3" art squares.


And, this last one is quite possibly my fave, even though I am crazy about that silly ghost! Each white inchie square got a mini treatment of a stamped gelato circle, a dye ink stamped circle, and a heat embossed gold star. Pink is one of my least favorite colors, but I am really digging on the neon trend right now. I didn't have any neon pink card stock in my stash, so the mats for the inchies are made from a post-it note. :)


That is all for me today, please head to Dina's awesome blog next. Have a fantastic day!!

Hi Noelle! I can see you had loads of fun playing with the inchies! So many pretty cards - all so different. I love them all! The background for the ghost is super cool, but I love the bright pop of color and gold in the pink birthday, and the last with the floral design is so pretty too!

The cards are great. Love the bright, colorful dots. The watercolored flowers are so pretty.
The monster is cute (he probably wouldn't want to be called cute).
The squares are a new product and I'm really enjoying learning about them.

Noelle, the foil birthday card is great. I love the 3-D sentiment detail. It really shows off the card and all it's INCHIE ARTS cute details really well

Loved your cards, thanks!

Faboolous describes these cards perfectly! Love the ghost and the gelato on the black. Striking. Like the watercolor effect on card 2. And love card 3. You created embellishments that look like they were made as a set for the background paper. And sticky notes! Lol!

Patty said...

Very interesting background effect with the gellato

Denise Bryant said...

Fun cards, Noelle! I love the background on the ghost in particular! Looks great, and fun ghost stamp too!
