Whilst we were in New Mexico last September, Hobby Lobby came up trumps with a much reduced set of 'inchies' stamps - and I also came up trumps by promptly forgetting I'd eagerly snapped up this bargain :( The clear set has 12 little 1" stamps, 8 other slightly smaller ones, one that's about 1.5" plus three little words 'bliss, dream and life'. A lorra stamps for your dollars!

Yesterday they popped up and demanded to be used, so I obliged:
I used:

- a small cream DL card

- SU 'Melon Mambo' card snippets, cream card snippets

- three square stamps from the set, which is called 'Flourishes' by Inkadinkado, stamped in different SU colours, trimmed and layered onto small square scallops of 'Melon Mambo' card

- sentiment and butterfly from the set stamped using 'Melon Mambo' onto cream card. I used a Spellbinders pennant die to cut some 'Melon Mambo' card and then laid the metal die over the stamped sentiment and lightly ran a pencil round the inside of the die as a guide to hand-snipping a smaller pennant. And if you followed that garbled description........... well done you :)) 



  1. ah so right Di we get these things and promptly forget! great work!! Shaz in Oz.x

  2. What a great card Di. What a great set of stamps

  5. Morning Di, Oh what adorable little stamps and your card is just perfect xx

  6. Very pretty card Miss! I have seen these but then cannot decide which I want....all of them!

  7. Hello Di, I'd like a tenner for every time I've done something like that, I'd be a wealthy woman instead of a poor scrapper :))We love them, buy them and then promptly forget them which is why I try not to put new stamps away until they have been inked at least once!

    Love your card - a great use of the inchie stamps and your pennant is perfect.

    Hugs, Elizabeth xx

  8. Very effective indeed, makes a great card. My kids decided some time ago that I had a forgetery instead of a memory. xx Flora

  11. What pretty inchies! Love the layout and the colors!

  12. Love these inchies. Now THIS card is more like we see from Diana...BUT you know what? Both styles - very, very pretty & well executed. You could use a black background with these also, I bet and would be great. Hugs

  13. Hi Di,

    Great card using your inch stamps! My fingers are itching for some stamping action. Monday is a holiday so I'll three days off to play.
