Fun with Rinchies!

Hey y'all! Bringing you a little project today that I worked on at PMS Night (stands for Pizza, Munchies, Stamping/Scrapping) about a week ago. These little rinchies (which are round inchies) were made for the March swaps over at the Fancy Paper Crafters online craft group. If you've never participated in swaps before, check out the group as we do monthly swaps and have some really great gals participating. Anyway, here are my rinchies for this swap this month:

For this project, all supplies came from Stampin Up!. If you need a rep, contact Mary Anne Magliaro ( She is one awesome lady and has shared many fabulous projects with us. These stamps and punches are one of my newest purchases. I was hesitant at first due to their tiny size but they really worked out fabulous for this project. I had to make 9 sets of these little boogers which took FOREVER! I wanted to make two that were more feminine and two more masculine. I think they really turned out neat :).
The process of putting these together was really quite simple. I punched out all my circle layers (used a 1 inch circle punch, a 7/8 inch scalloped punch and then a 3/4 inch circle punch). I stamped (using the Lovely Little Labels set). This set has a coordinating set of punches called Little Labels Punch Pack. For the ink, I believe I used Melon Mambo and Early Espresso. I took a small sponge and inked around the edges of a couple of the little punches. That's about it for this little project. I'm excited to see what everyone else came up with. I really enjoy making inchies/rinchies. These little guys are perfect to use in making a quick card or just a little something to embellish a scrapbook page.
Thanks for stopping by today! Until next time ... happy crafting!
