The INSPIRATION STATION cards at Art 'n Soul are quite popular right now with the arrival of fall. This month's INSPIRATION STATION features stamp and die sets from Hero Arts, "Autumn" (CL882) and "Autumn Frame Cuts" (D1156).

Today's INSPIRATION STATION card is made by me. (the green color is only the background color that the card sits on)

    On the weekly email from Art 'n Soul, I provided the Technique of the Week. I couldn't wait to use the new Inchie Arts' Swatch board, and I found I could use the 4" Art Square along with it.

    by Debbie Gaetz
    Using the 4" Art Square from Inchie Arts, I stamped all 4 stamp images in the stamp set with IMAGINE Crafts Tsukineko's VersaMark. I heat embossed with Ranger's Embossing Tinsel in Silver. The square was then mounted on a 4-1/8" square of white card stock. A white Inchie Arts' Swatch was mounted on a 4-1/8" x 2-1/8" piece of metallic card stock in gun metal. The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark onto a piece of the same metallic card stock (3-7/8" x 1-7/8"), and heat embossed with the same embossing powder.

    A scrap piece of handmade paper was adhered to the base card. The mounted Inchie Arts' square and swatch boards were then adhered to the card along the center. A piece of 1/8" washi tape was placed along the left side so the card might look like a book cover.

    • Inchie Arts' 4-inch Art Square in black and Swatch Board in white
    • Balzer Designs' Rotating Repeat Tiles - Pattern from Impression Obsession (3143-LG)
    • Sentiment stamp from Penny Black (3294F . . . many things)
    • Ranger Embossing Tinsel in Silver
    • Small glitter enamel dot (over the "i" in imagination)

    This card was very quick and easy to make because the tile stamps fit perfectly onto the Inchie Arts' squares. When I'm able to replenish the Twinchie square supply, these stamps are going to get another work-out!

    Tonight starts the full weekend of RubberMoon classes from Kristen Powers, aka Kae Pea. I'm so excited! If you're going to be at tonight's class, I'll see you then!

    Thanks for stopping by! Carolyn is at the store all day and would love to see you.
