Wee & Whimsical Wednesday

Good morning! As you're reading this, I'm on my way to Chicago for this year's Craft and Hobby Association's Summer trade show. I love Chicago! And since I'm heading towards the Windy City (which I think is such a misnomer, but I digress...), I thought it would be appropriate to have today's Wee & Whimsical Wednesday to feature a kite!

I started out with a Inchie + Square from Inchie Arts. This one started out white, but I had a little fun with it. First, I created a checked pattern with a Copic marker and a ruler. Then I pulled out my Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers) and rounded the corners with a 1/2" corner. To finish it off, I added a trim with Stickles (in Mermaid). I love all the great things you can do with these Inchie Arts products!

The kite image is from the Itty Bittys Collections from Lockhart Stamp Company. One thing that I love about Karen's stamps is that there is always a way to illustrate them just a bit further! Here, I created a polka dot pattern so easily and it really jazzes it up a bit. (Nothing like adding a bit of additional visual interest to wow your recipient!)I cut out the image a popped it up with foam tape, placing it on the Inchie + Square. The additional dimension helps pull it away from the checked pattern a bit.

Let me know if you have any other questions about today's Wee & Whimsical Wednesday card! I'll chat with you when I get back from CHA. In the meantime, be well!
