Fab Friday Tutorial - Inchie Backgrounds with Bombshell Stamps

Hi Marnie here!  I know I'm late today I got a little caught up in School Shopping and forgot what day of the week it was......  EEEEEP I ammmmm soooo Sorry, it's that time of year!  Today I have a little tutorial on making an inchie backgrounds card with Bombshell Stamps.  Here are the supplies I started with.  Stamps Mermaid Treasure and Hawiian Girl, I chose a summer theme.  Distress Inks in Bright Colors along with their matching daubers.  A 1" punch and white paper.
I inked up the paper the solid Pink and Blue will be for mats for my inchies.
Then I stamped a ton of small images onto my rainbow sheet of paper with Archival Ink in random patterns,
Now punch 1" squares out of the stamped piece and cut 1 1/8" squares out of the blue and pink.
I was first going to put these on a plain white card however I decided I needed to pick up some more colors so I created the Yellow background with ink and stencils using the same colors.  So here I would like to note, it is easier to line up your completed inchies we build an L on the card.  Then everything gets attached according to those lines.
This is the completed piece.  Now to embellish.
I have added the Mermaid colored with Copic then foam taped and some coordinating Sequins as well as a bit of stickles.  The Mermaid is mounted on a small piece of Orange I colored with the same ink.
Here is a close up of the layers.
Thank you so much for stopping by today HAVE A GREAT ONE!


  1. Great tutorial and a beautiful card, as usual! I love the inchies in the inked bright colors...and the sequins look like bubbles...they add the perfect touch.
