Inchies and Fall

The latest IO challenge is to use Inchie Squares as well as a fall theme. When I first heard about the Inchie Art squares, I wasn't sure about them. After all, I can cut my own squares. Then I used them. Wow! First of all, they aren't 1" cardstock squares. They are pre-cut artist quality matboard pieces. They take paint and inks really well and add a nice dimension to your projects. Plus, the truth is I can't cut uniform squares to save my life. Can you tell I fell in love with them?

For my card, I used stamps and sayings from the Tami Potter Autumn Seals set (CL108). Tami made a set for each of the seasons, and I find that I use the sets as the foundation of a lot of my seasonal cards. First, I stamped the wood grain Cover a Card (CC034) onto an Inchie Arts tan card using brown Versafine Ink. Next, I stamped the leaf image three times onto cream Inchie squares using Habaneo, Spanish Moss, and Crimson Red Versafine ink. Finally, I added the Keats quote circle and added a saying to the inside.

Need more inspiration? Check out what Daniela, Deborah, Dina, Jeanne, and Kathy created. Want to play along? Enter your own Inchie/Fall card on the IO blog by Saturday night, and you could win a $25 IO gift certificate. All the information can be found here.
