Cosmo Cricket and inchies

Great things come in small packages, right? Well then we have INCHIES. Cute name for a cute little phenom. They are 1 inch squares that stampers are all over. At first it may seem a bit of a challenge. It's so tiny.

Today I have worked with Cosmo Cricket's Fleuriste paper and Haunted Collection stamps. You will have a chance to win a 6x6 pad of papers as well as a clear stamp set from them (other than these). Same old, same old... post a comment to enter to win, before midnight tonight.

There are a few ways you could do this. You could... stamp your image and then cut your inchie out with either a trimmer or a 1 inch square punch. OR you could punch or cut your inchie out first and then stamp it. It's an inch square either way.
I think the challenge in this is that it's so small. So think tiny embellishments.
What do you do with them once you have them made?
You could treat them like a little embellishment.
You could put one in the center of a flower on a layout or card.
You could line a few up...

or use one at a time...

You could just make and collect them. :) like stamps!
