Top Note Quilt Cards & Inchies Cards











I have been in the "punch" mood you might say, as these newest "creations" involve using the square 1" punch and the square 1 1/4" punch! The first two cards I cased the idea from http://chicnscratch.typepad.com/chic_n_scratch/2009/03/top-note-quilt-.html and just love them! All the DS papers and Card stock used in both cards as well as the stamps are from Stampin'Up! The Tempting Turquoise card, I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss it, the Kiwi Kiss one I just left as is...I stitched both cards on my machine...both are made using the wonderful and ever so useful Top Note Die!

The last two cards I made using the 1" punch and making the "inchies". I was inspired to work on these from my newest issue of Scrap and Stamp.....the entire front cover is devoted to inchies and I hope to make a large one to display~hang in my stamp room. I sat last night and punched out about 75 "inchies".....it was so fun to embellish these. One of my favorites is on the black card, I used a vintage old button with a "diamond" in it. These are smaller cards, approx. 4 3/4" x 4 3/4". So what do you think...good eh???
