Fun with CAS Inchies!

Hi friends. Did you ever just want to play along with a challenge and make multiple cards? That seems to be my MO lately. I like the challenges that are at least 2 weeks long. It gives me time to mull over the design, take & edit photos and write a blog.

AAA Cards has a Clean and Simple Challenge going on now:

The rules are that your inchie must be a circle or a square and if you have a sentiment it has to be on the inchie itself. I went through a good part of my stash and found some NBUS stamps to use. This is really sad because these are wooden tag stamps from Stampin' Up! dated 2006. 15 year old stamp sets called: Terrific Tags, Tags So Much and Too Terrific Tags. Never used these particular ones before.

I used My Favorite Things Smooth White Card Stock for the bases of all 4 cards. Lately I have not been using my Neenah Classic Crest 110 lb. card stock for I am finding it hard to score for bases. This MFT Smooth White is 100 lb. and much easier to score and yet really sturdy for bases.
I stamped all the images with Altenew Obsidian Black Ink for that really crisp dark look. There were each die cut with the one inch square from Hero Arts Square Infinity Dies. If you need a square - this is the go to set. Every size imaginable:
I added a few dotted lines using a retired Stampin' Up! set called Swirly Frames. Lately I have been destashing my Stampin' Up! products on Ebay, but this one is a keeper.
All 4 images were popped up with Fun Stamper Journey Medium Foam Squares. 4 to each inchie and I really like these particular foam squares because I can move the image around until I press firmly down. 

Well that's it for today! Mostly retired products, but fun to look at them in a new way. If you've never tried a CAS card, they are not always the easiest. Keeping everything pristine is sometimes really difficult with black ink and a messy craft desk! I really enjoyed this challenge....thank you to AAA Cards and NBUS for hosting.

Hello, welcome to Stampin With Anita. I love crafting in all forms. It gives me great joy to create something special. I hope you enjoy your visit.


  1. Darling! Yes, this was fun and I was thrilled to see how quickly I could make some CAS cards once the review of stamps was done. lol

  2. Awesome collection of inchie cards. Love the spider! Thanks for playing at AAA Cards, hope to see you join in with future challenges too. Stay safe and keep crafting!

    1. Thank you< Jane. I was thinking of adding "Sorry I missed your birthday" on the EEEK Spider card...just so that it was specifically Halloween. I hope to ply along more, too.

  3. Anita, these are the ultimate CASlicious cards and each one is perfectly adorable! My brain is rattling around wondering if I have any teeny tiny stamps to follow your lead. I think the fact that you've kept them black and white seals the deal! Thank you for the tip on MFT white stock and thank you for sharing with everyone at NBUS! Take care! Hugs, Darnell

  4. You're so sweet Darnell to leave such great comments! It's nice to know that you read my blog. I really appreciate it. Hope you can find some tiny stamps - it really is fun!

  5. Beautiful set of cards! Thanks for joining AAA Cards! Hugs Åsa

  6. I love that you ran with this idea and made four cards! Thanks for playing along with us at AAACards!
