Wee & Whimsical Whoops!

Hi all! So, I tend to preschedule my posts, and I thought I had my Wee & Whimsical Wednesday post scheduled, but alas, I left it in draft mode. Too funny! So here it is for your Inchie fix!

There is really nothing that Karen Lockhart does better than what I like to think of as 'variation on a theme'. These sweet Itty Bittys from Lockhart Stamp Company prove that perfectly! I love the way they pair up on Inchie Squares from Inchie Arts. This is a quick and easy layout that you can use to showcase a variety of images. Here, I pulled out three desserts, the IB Cupcake, the IB Cake and the IB Ice Cream Cone and stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black. I chose this ink because I knew I wanted to use my Copics, and this is such a great choice when using that medium. Anyone who knows me know how much I love my desserts, so this was a fun combination of stamped images for me to use.

A quick design note, I used a piece of twill underneath the Inchie Squares to ground them; if I just left them in the center of the paper, it would have a 'floating' feel, which in my opinion, can really leave the recipient feeling like something is not quite right with it. Something as simple as a strip of paper underneath can fix that quickly and easily.

Let me know if you have any questions. Have an amazing day! Be well.

This is such a cute card. Thanks for the tip about using the twill to help ground the images. Those are the type of tips I find very helpful.
