Animal and Food Trinchies

Here are my animal and food trinchies.

I stamped the flowers for the background. I used the SU ticket punch for the corners.

I stamped the "What's Cookin'? onto a transparency. I stamped the hotdog and hamburger and colored them with SU markers, and then I used red brads to attach the transparency to the cardstock.
Now I have 8 sets left to create. I'm getting there.

More trinchies

These are some more of the trinchies I made yesterday. The first one is for Wedding.

Here is my nature

This one is for insects

This is for birthday

So, I have 8 sets completed now. Only 10 more sets to go!

Summer trinchies

Here is my set for the summer trinchies. I will add stickles to the ice cream. I cut out the ice cream cones and put pop dots on the back.

Spring trinchies

Here are my spring trinchies. I used SU watercolor crayons, aqua pen on watercolor paper.

Working on trinchies (3x3's)

I am working on my trinchies today for a swap. I signed up for 18 groups, but I only have to do 5 trinchies for each one. This is my Easter trinchie...

510 inchies!

Here is a pic of 17 sets of inchies. Each set has 30 inchies. These are just for one swap. I signed up for 14 sets and am including an additional 3 sets for one particular group. If they were all laid down in a row, they would total 42.5 feet. That's a lot of inchies!

Wedding Tag

Here is a wedding tag that I made for a swap I'm in. I stamped the couple on a piece of white cardstock and then I stamped "Happily ever after" on a piece of vellum. The bow holds the two pieces together.

Happy everything card

My son asked if I had a "going away" card. I didn't, so I hurry up and put this one together for him because he needed it right away for a co worker. Its 4x4 and I put a transparency sheet for the window and pop dotted the inside flower.

Hubby did it again! Happy Birthday Card for me

My hubby snuck into my craft room and made this card for me for my birthday! He even matched the ink to the cardstock! He couldn't find my white cardstock, so he used printer paper, and it wrinkled a little when he glued it.

April Monthly Inchie

Here are my group 2 inchies for April. The theme is nature. I painted the background and then edged it with a 'gold' pen. I'm posting three views because its so hard to catch the shimmer.

Monthly Inchie Swap

Here are my March inchies for the monthly inchie swap I am in. These are for group 5. The colors are 'baby blue', 'baby pink' and a 'bright green'. I did my own background paper so it would match.

Stampin' Up! colors used: pink pirhouette, soft sky, and gable green.

Friends Inchie

Here is my friends inchie. I watercolored the background with SU watercolor crayons and an aqua painter.

Monthly Inchie Swap

I just came across a picture of my color inchies that I made for a monthly inchie swap that I am in. I made 3 sets of 10 for this group. We had to use the colors "baby pink", "baby blue" and bright green. The colors look washed out because of the flash.

Christmas Inchie

Here is my Christmas inchie for one of my swaps.

Halloween Inchies

Here are my Halloween Inchies for group 10

More Inchies

Here are some more of my inchies. These three are for a swap I'm in. The first one I watercolored with my watercolor crayons and an aqua painter, and the second one I colored with my SU markers. These are both done on watercolor paper.

I had fun making the following inchies. These are not for any swaps 'yet'.

On these flowers, I watercolored the background paper, inked the edges and hand colored the flowers with sharpies.

And this is a side view of the flower and scrap inchie to show the height.

Hubby made me a Valentine Card!

I gave my husband a Valentine's Card that I had made. We don't usually do "Valentine's Day", so he felt a little guilty and said he better go to my room and make me a card. He did and here it is. I think he did a good job. I just had to show him where things were to begin with, and this is what he came up with. He even used my stickles!

Another inchie swap

This time its for an ABC/123 inchie swap. The hostess wants us to make 40 inchies of each letter/number so she can mat and frame them for her sons teacher. I signed up for the letter "J" and the number "5".

I added a star to the "J" inchie. I thought it needed a little something extra.

This is my first "trinchie" It is a 3 inch square. I will be making alot of different trinchies. I signed up for 18 groups. We only have to make 5 of these per group.
This is for the BABY group.


Twinchies are 2 inch squares. Here are my animal twinchies for one of my swaps.
I made 3 sets of 10 for this group.

Here is another set of twinchies for another group. I made 30 of these.



I have found that making "inchies" is highly addictive. I have signed up to do several swaps involving inchies. The following are 6 groups of inchies. I still have 4 more groups to complete just for this one swap. Each group consists of 30 inchies. In this first picture of the travel inchies, I have actually signed up for three spots so that would be 90 inchies for this group. I am actually throwing in another 90 inchies, so a total of 180 inchies in this group.

I have joined several swaps lately. I got caught up in "inchies". These are 1 inch squares that you decorate with whatever you want, but it has to be in a 1 square inch space. This became quite a challenge and a little addictive. I will post my inchies in the near future.

Another member came up with her own swap of "tags plus inchies" where we have to make a tag between 3 -5 inches and include at least 1 inchie. She has come up with 'Themes" for each tag.

Here are my versions:

They do look more vivid in real life.
