Stampin’ Up! Trendy Trims Inchie Card

I used the Trendy Trims stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create an “inchie” card.  An inchie card is simply a card that uses 1″ squares over the main panel.

My card design was inspired by the My Favorite Things MFTWSC199 sketch.

I started by adhering a panel from the Trim the Tree DSP Stack to a panel of Whisper White card stock with SNAIL.  Then I adhered the layered panel to a Coastal Cabana card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the tag image from the Cheerful Tags photopolymer stamp set in Sahara Sand ink twelve times on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Then I stamped the snowflake image from the Trendy Trims photopolymer stamp set in Coastal Cabana ink over the center of the tag stamps.

I punched the snowflake images out with the 1″ Square Punch and I adhered them with SNAIL to Postage Stamp Punches from Coastal Cabana card stock.  I adhered the layered punches to the card front with SNAIL.  Quick tip:  When I’m lining up these types of images, I find it easiest to start in the corners and work toward the center.  That helps me to keep the same spacing the same between each image.

I stamped the sentiment from the Trendy Trims stamp set in Coastal Cabana ink on a Whisper White strip, then adhered it with SNAIL to a Coastal Cabana and then a Strawberry Slush card stock strip.  I punched the end with the Hexagon Punch and adhered the layered sentiment to the card front with SNAIL.

I stamped the tag image from the Cheerful Tags stamp set again in Sahara Sand ink, then stamped the snowflake from the Trendy Trims stamp set in Strawberry Slush ink over it.  I punched it out with the 1″ Square Punch, layered it over a Coastal Cabana Square that I’d cut with my Stampin’ Trimmer, then over a Postage Stamp Punch from Strawberry Slush card stock.  I adhered the layered square to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered an All Is Calm Snowflake Embellishment with a Glue Dot and I colored a Rhinestone Basic Jewel with my Dark Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Blendabilities Marker and I adhered it to the center.  I tied a bow from Coastal Cabana Thick Baker’s Twine and I adhered it above the snowflake embellishment with a dot of Mulitpurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the snowflake image from the Trendy Trims stamp set in Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush inks on a Whisper White panel inside the card.
